I have never been able to do well in Chemistry since secondary school until I attended Mr Max Lai’s lessons. Mr Lai is able to link and explain all the abstract concepts so well that I was able to have deeper understanding of the various important topics. In particular, his Organic Chemistry summaries are extremely useful in helping me remember and reinforce the numerous chemical reactions. Mr Lai has been instrumental in enabling me achieve an ‘A’ for A-level H2 Chemistry.

Mr Max Lai’s year-end A-level H2 Chemistry topical crash courses are really beneficial to me, as it has helped clarified a lot of misconceptions and I have become more confident and competent after attending his lessons. It also helps that his lessons are enjoyable and I truly appreciate all that he has done for me!

Mr Max Lai is an engaging Chemistry teacher who never fails to go the extra mile whenever I have troubles understanding a particular topic. He would go through the various ten-year-series questions, as well as JC preliminary questions thoroughly. Through this process, it has exposed me to the different types of questions and helped me handle a wide variety of common questions tested in the A-level H2 Chemistry paper!

Mr Max Lai’s lessons are concise and really useful in helping me consolidate old content, as well as learn new concepts. He is always available after class whenever I required more clarifications. My grades improved tremendously after attending only a few lessons and I would strongly recommend Mr Lai for A-level H2 Chemistry tuition.
