Dr Marcus Phua received his Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Chemistry from the National University of Singapore, and has completed his Doctor of Philosophy, having carried out research in NUS Department of Chemistry, Department of Pharmacy and Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.
Dr Phua has been providing pre-tertiary Chemistry tuition since 2014 and taught students from various schools, including Raffles Institution and Hwa Chong Institution. His students has shown marked improvements in grades, with the fastest seen in a test conducted the next day after the first lesson. His classroom teaching style centres around his students’ systematic understanding and firm grasp of concepts to promote their ability to apply to different types of questions during examinations. He also actively engages his students through higher order questions so as to quickly identify and bridge the gaps in their content knowledge. Dr Phua has extensive experience teaching group classes, both in-person, hybrid or online.
Dr Phua was also involved in teaching courses for NUS-Technical University of Munich (TUM) Asia’s Industrial Chemistry programme, and served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for NUS Forensic Science programmes both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
