I am Julian Tan, a former lecturer at Raffles Institution (Junior College). I was a recipient of the MOE Teaching Scholarship and graduated from NUS and UCLA with First Class Honours in Chemistry.

To pursue my passion for teaching and Chemistry, I started Julian Chemistry to focus my undivided attention on providing best-quality Chemistry tuition to O Level and A Level students. Given my unique and innovative approach to viewing Chemistry as a discipline, I am excited to share these perspectives with learners in an independent setting. I hope to be able to reach out to students all over Singapore who might be overly caught up in the rigour and demands of mastering Chemistry, and to provide them instead with insight on how to form those (chemical) bonds and connect the dots(-and-cross diagrams)!

I have tutored students in A Level Chemistry at the H1, H2 and H3 levels for 16 years and consistently assisted them in achieving stellar results (80% A and 90% AB for H2 Chem). I was also a trainer for the Singapore Team at the International Chemistry Olympiad and the co-ordinator for the Raffles H3 Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Chemistry Olympiad programmes.

Many of my former students have gone on to excel academically at top universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford, UPenn, NUS and NTU. Most recently, I received the Terman Award (Most Inspirational Pre-College Teacher) by Stanford University in 2017.

I look forward to helping you maximise your potential and finding fun in Chemistry as a subject.
