Do My Child / I Need Physics Tuition?

O Level:  Many parents send their children to tuition early so that they have an unfair advantage and can stay ahead of their peers. This competitive education system causes majority of the parents to send their children for tuition so that they don’t get left behind among their peers. This inevitably makes tuition a necessity unless your child is independent, studious and responsible or it would be difficult for him to compete with his/her peers who attends tuition.

A Level: If you are currently an O Level student who got an A1/A2 you may think that you will be fine for JC. However from my experience, many of my own students who got A for O levels flunked their JC tests after quitting tuition. This is because the jump from O levels to A levels is huge and many students don’t realise it until it’s too late. This makes them too stressed and panic for A levels.

Please refer to the Testimonial section.

What Is Your Maximum Class Size?

When our class reach to a critical mass, we will open new classes to reduce the average size of the class. As we allow students to perform make up classes, therefore we cannot commit to a class size but generally the weekend classes are bigger than the weekday classes.

We can ensure the quality of each lesson will not be compromised regardless of the class size and where the students are from. Our tutors are so well versed in the subject that they know exactly where the misconception are often located and able to accurately anticipate the questions the students will ask. Our tutors will also know what are the questions the students will ask but did not ask.

The Class Size Is Rather Large, Can My Child Follow The Class, Or Will My Child Be Taken Care Of In Class?

The class size does not matter but instead what matter is the capability of our tutors. Our tutors are book authors and ex-MOE teachers with more than 10 years of experience and are more than qualified to help your child in their academic journey. In fact, there are also digital lessons which allow students to recap on the concepts that they are weak in.

Won’t The Pure Science Classes Be Too Heavy For The Combined Science Students?

Our training program are more intensive for the combined science students but we have tried and tested many times and it is proven that these students are more capable of scoring distinctions, beating the bell curve during examinations.

I Understand each School Teaches Different Chapters For Lower Secondary Science. How Do Your Tutors Teach The Class If All The Students Are Studying The Different Subject / Topic (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)?

Usually the lower secondary class size is relatively small and thus the tutors are capable of helping individual students to tackle the subject according to their school’s curriculum.

How Do Your Teachers Teaches? Do They Go Through Everything? Do They Give Homework And Mark For The Students?

There are numerous students complained to use that their teachers do not know how to delivery the teachings well and the lecture notes lacked details. However, there are also others who complained the notes being too detailed and difficult to comprehend. This may make learning difficult and students find it overwhelming to even solve a simple question.

Our task here is to ensure we find the best tutor and getting just the right amount of simplified content and sufficient practices ranging from basic, intermediate to advanced level to be delivered to the student.

The lesson is basically broken up into 4 parts: Concept, Demonstrating, Applying, Test (CDAT).

The first of part of the lesson is to ensure the concept are properly simplified and deliver to the students and ensuring they understood completely.

The second part of the lesson is a live demonstration of how the concept are applied and used to solve examination questions.

The third part is the student will begin working by themselves through basic examples and gradually up to intermediate and finally challenger mode. The difficulty level will be adjusted as the students become more competent in their core concept.

Finally, in order to access if the student has fully understand the concept thoroughly, there will also be an online quiz for students to attempt and the parents will know the progress of their child accurately.

Your Centres Combine Both Primary 5 and 6 / Secondary 1 and 2 In The Same Class? How Do Your Teachers Teach? Will It Affect The Students As They Are Of Different Level?

For Secondary 1 students, they are learning the contents for both Secondary 1 and 2 and for the Secondary 2 students, these lessons will act as revision lessons for them to recap and revisit the concepts that they have learnt. Our lessons pace is slightly faster but this will greatly help the students to advance in their learning.

Why Are Even The Distinction Students Attending Classes?

The current trend in tuition may slightly differ from the past where students only attend the class if he/she is weak in the subject.  The students often lacked of time due to numerous commitment in school such as co-curriculum activities, competition and 3rd language classes. In order to maximize the use of time, the students can choose to reduce their learning curve in class by having a good tutor to short cut his learning process. Tuition is not a mean to replace school lesson but rather as a way for more effective learning and clearing the misconception rapidly.

Students will undergo a series of personalised intensive training sessions in both the online and face-to-face classroom environment.

It is no longer the traditional 2 hour weekly tuition classes. Instead, students can come to our learning centre and learn any chapter at their own pace, with customized unlimited worksheets tailored to overcome their weaknesses.

How Are Your Books Able To Help Students To Do Well In The Examinations?

PHYSICS is one of the most challenging subjects as it involves deep conceptual understanding with powerful problem-solving techniques. To make Physics an easier subject to learn, Mr Lai has written Physics (Expert Series) books for O and A Level students.

The books are specially targeted at Beginner and Intermediate Learners as it consists of Notes, Worked Examples, Tips, IQ Explanation-Based Questions and Solutions, as well as National Examination Questions and Solutions.
