With over 12 years of teaching experience, Mr Lau is widely sought after for his direct and no-nonsense way of teaching Chemistry that distills often complex concepts into bite sized bits that is easy to understand. Mr Lau has also painstakingly compiled all his shortcuts and secret hacks created over the years into the MLC Method and published in the sold-out MLC Revision Guidebook.

The greatest difficulty faced by students is transitioning from ‘O’ Level syllabus to ‘A’ Level syllabus due to the steep learning curve and incremental increase in content required. Mr Lau has an acute understanding of students’ difficulties and misconceptions. This led to him creating a system of shortcuts to allow his students to bridge this chasm and understand Chemistry from a fresh perspective. Mr Lau believes that learning Chemistry need not be difficult and often engages his students with vivid analogies that drive home the concepts immediately, helping them make sense of this very abstract subject.

His teaching methods incorporate his 3 core beliefs to achieve success :

Self-belief of his students that they are able to achieve success.


Clear, concise teaching to deliver core concepts and address common misconceptions.


Proven systems that equip every student with the ability to do well with consistent effort.

He is also a firm believer of peer teaching as this allows students to reactivate, strengthen and consolidate fading memories which encourages retention and active learning. By building on these core beliefs, his students consistently rank the top in their cohort and achieve success in Chemistry with ease. His novel teaching methodologies and intuitive pedagogy also led to him being nominated by students to receive the “Most Innovative Teacher Award”.
