Mr. David Wong

Mr David Wong graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Materials Science. He was awarded the MOE teaching award and his specialized teaching subjects are Chemistry and English. He served as a subject teacher of Chemistry in Saint Andrew’s Junior College from Jun 2003 to Dec 2008. He is a creative teacher who can capture the attention of his students by using different pedagogies to explain difficult concepts. He cares deeply about the academic performance of his students and will stay back till late in the evening to provide consultations on H1, H2 and H3 Chemistry for them. In co-curricular activities, he had shown outstanding leadership in the Student Council and Scholarships Committee. He was involved in organising major events such as the college’s Open House and Teacher’s Day celebrations. He was in charge of the 120 scholars in the college. They come from the ASEAN nations, China and India. The work done by David and his committee was well-recognized by the college. They won the Outstanding Contribution (Team) College award in 2006. The scholarships section in MOE has provided the Permanent Secretary with anecdotal evidence of this committee’s work and this has been mentioned in her speech at Tea for Teacher-Mentors (March 2006).

Subsequently, David was offered an international school teaching position in the British Section of Taipei European School in Jan 2010. He was the leading Chemistry teacher who taught Higher and Standard Level Chemistry at International Baccalaureate (IB) level. He has attended several IB chemistry conferences in the region. He is trained in marking chemistry examinations, practicals and coursework and has supervised numerous chemistry Olympiad projects. As a form tutor to senior high school students of many years, David has organised various chemistry remedial and workshops to help prepare his potential pre-medical students for example on how to create their portfolios, how to search for universities and courses and interview techniques. His concern for these students is evident in that he coaches them for Ox-bridge interviews and even give them pointers on grooming before they appear before the interview board. Many of his students have successfully entered universities such as Imperial, UCL, LSE in the UK and Ivy League colleges in the US.

After spending five years abroad, David has decided to return to Singapore to spend quality time with his family in 2015. He has joined Learners’ Lodge and is looking forward to sharing his knowledge of A-level and IB Chemistry with the students under his pastoral care.


TESTIMONIALS

Opening Quotes  I was initially struggling with chemistry in JC as it was difficult for me to grasp the concepts and the answering techniques due to my weak chemistry foundation. However, after participating in Mr David Wong’s lessons, I found it easier to understand difficult concepts and answer questions I used to be unable to answer. Mr Wong has really put in a lot of effort into creating handwritten notes for his students which further allowed us to understand the question requirements or the concepts which we couldn’t grasp. Under his guidance, I was able to be pulled from U’s and S’s in school to achieve an A for H2 Chemistry in the ‘A’ Level Examinations in 2017.   Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes  As a last-ditch effort to save my h2 chemistry I decided to go for tuition upon my friend’s recommendation and it was probably one of the best decisions I made. Mr David Wong made me more interested in chemistry and motivated me to do well and not fear the subject. I wouldn’t have gotten my A if it weren’t for him and I’m really grateful to have been his student. Thank you, Mr Wong!    Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes   Thank you so much for making my chem grades jump out of “U” zone, taking time to check my school work and patiently clarifying my doubts. Your constant repetition of information allows me to remember chem more easily! Please sleep early as well as you look tired in the morning and always drink coffee. Hope that you will continue to enjoy your teaching life and stay happy.    Closing Quotes
