Fading in Async request Items

I’m trying to fade in some items that are loading using the async pipe. However, the items are still flickering in, if i set a long fade time, the fade does work it just looks ridiculous. Whats the best way of going forward so that the items don’t flicker on the screen and only show when completely loaded?

Code.ts

>   selector: 'page-my-tutors',
