3 Ingredients To Make For A Highly Engaging Physics Tuition

Ask any student in Singapore, and they will tell you that tuition is one of the most common shared experiences they have growing up. But add physics (or any H2 science) into the mixture, and you might hear complaints of challenges.

But educators believe that it isn’t just the subject but how we teach the subject that matters most to our students. And this is why we believe in the key ingredients to make our physics tuition the most engaging it can be for our young learners.

Experience and passion as a teacher

We’ve all dreaded lessons in a school where a teacher drones on and on, but a teacher who loves what they teach as well as being highly personable can bring even the driest of subjects to life. While teaching is a lifelong learning process, students can only love our lessons if they see how much we love what we teach.

Still, years of experience teaching physics allows us to know all the common pitfalls and mistakes of students of different levels. It enables us to point our students in the right direction promptly. Passing on our experience helps our students save hours that they would have otherwise wasted trying to figure things out by themselves. 

Curiosity is the mark of an engaged student

Learning is much more than memorising and regurgitating what we have previously read a hundred times. But leaping from memorising to an innate curiosity can come from a shift in textbook learning to linking concepts to daily life around us. From real-life examples to online video resources, ‘complex’ subjects and formulas can jump from page to reality, giving you a chance to view physics from a fresh and new perspective.

This way of teaching doesn’t just lead to an increase in enjoyment while learning but also allows students to naturally ask questions related to what we’re learning at the same time. Who says physics can’t be a fun subject?

Dynamic group learning culture

Students can only do so many physics practice papers in their weekly schedule. Factor in the other countless subjects they have, and you have a real fight for time. That is why we believe in teaching students as a group, as the significance of group learning shines when students learn from each other’s mistakes in lessons.

Creating an open and dynamic culture in class will allow students of all backgrounds to feel engaged in lessons. Coaxing the quiet ones to be more involved and keeping the most energetic of students engaged simultaneously, all the while allowing them to engage the physics tutor with questions — now, that is active learning done right.


We know there are many physics tuition classes in Singapore, and learning this subject can often feel like a chore. But we at Best Physics TuitionTM believe that our teaching style can bring out the best of our students, no matter where their starting point is. Having great students is only one part of the equation, and we’re proud to say that we have an excellent tutor to match the other part of it.

Our engaging lessons for O Level and JC H1 and H2 Physics tuition, including online lessons amid the pandemic, will see our students grow their interest in the subject while reaping notable improvements in their results in time.
