## Importance of Physics Tuition in Secondary School

Why would a student need Physics tuition in secondary school? In fact, the trend is that most people begin Physics tuition in Sec 3, or even nearer the national examinations such as the O levels or their high school IP exams. It is the increased complexity of the topics and the incoming national exams that mainly fuel this demand for physics tuition in Singapore.

## More Complex Physics Concepts

Physics topics in upper secondary become much harder than those in lower secondary. Students entering Sec 3 are suddenly bombarded with terms they may have never heard of in their life – kinetic model, rarefactions, electromagnetism, and so on. Especially for pure Physics, the content delves much deeper into concepts, with many requiring a firm grasp of mathematical formulas.

## Pressure Of High-Stakes Exams

Then, there is the looming O levels or IP examinations that they have to work towards. Even students who are doing sufficiently well in school will start to feel the urgency. Upper secondary is the time they start to set goals for themselves as to where they want to go in JC, polytechnic or university, and their Physics grade can make or break their dreams! Signing up for O level Physics tuition and IP Physics tuition in Singapore is a way to get ahead of your peers in gaining a better understanding of the various physics concepts.

The situation may seem bleak for students losing hope with their secondary or IP Physics grades in Singapore and feeling utterly lost in Physics lessons.

## O Level Physics Tips

• ### Use Varied Study Materials

Refer to textbooks, revision guides, past papers, and online resources. Different materials can provide varied perspectives and explanations, aiding better understanding. Solving past exam papers can also help you to get a sense of the exam pattern, time management, and types of questions asked. This practice helps identify weak areas that need more focus.

• ### Active Learning Techniques

Engage in active learning methods such as summarising chapters, making flashcards, teaching concepts to someone else, or creating mind maps. These techniques aid better retention and understanding.

• ### Take Breaks

While studying is essential, so is taking breaks. Regular breaks improve focus and prevent burnout. Follow the Pomodoro technique (25 minutes of focused study followed by a 5-minute break) if it suits you.

• ### Create a Study Schedule

Plan a study schedule that covers all topics systematically. Allocate more time to challenging topics while also ensuring adequate revision of easier ones. Regular revision is crucial. Reviewing what you have studied helps reinforce your memory and ensures better retention of information.

• ### Manage Time During Exams

Allocate time for each question and section according to the marks allocated. If you get stuck on a question, move on and return to it later.

During our sec 3 and sec 4 physics tuition classes, content is targeted directly at O level physics exam strategies and key examinable concepts. This helps students to master the subject within a shorter period of time which is especially useful for the high-stakes examinations like the O levels physics in Singapore, amidst the heavy content that students have to handle for other subjects as well.

In our classes, you are surrounded by like-minded students who are attending with the intention of gaining greater insights and intuition for Physics, in addition to scoring well for the subject. Your child will thrive in this collaborative environment as students are more likely to offer solutions to work out a problem together. If you want to, check out our students’ testimonials to find out what they have to say!

Our tuition classes also employ algorithm-based predictions on possible question types – on top of identifying trends and making predictions by compiling and sorting past year questions, which will be taught to your child. We believe in teaching beyond what the classroom can offer. With Mr Tony Chee’s area of expertise and experience, he enjoys sharing personal anecdotes and advice on students’ education paths.

Our physics tuition lessons are two hours long and will be conducted by Mr Tony Chee, who focuses on high quality of delivery with logical and digestible content. Relevant learning materials will also be provided to students.

During the lesson, we will go through the content of each chapter, segmented into smaller topics. After emphasizing on the key concepts for each topic/sub-topic, we will work on practice questions together, going through each solution step-by-step. Anytime your child has questions or doubts to clarify, they can be raised during or outside of classes.

It is certainly possible for a jump in academic performance. We have witnessed significant improvement in at least two-thirds of our students – by three or more grades.

Ultimately, it takes two to tango! It is crucial that students also put in the effort to work hard and be open to learning. Keep in mind that improvement is not achieved magically overnight but conditioned and nurtured with time and hard work.

Classes are taught in the same manner as the lessons held at the physical premises. There is also greater online support via additional resources provided for students. They come in the form of online practices, assessment, videos, notes and animation. Attending physics tuition gives students a routine. As they will be assigned with work to do, they are given a sense of accountability to complete them before tuition starts. Moreover, getting help to clarify their misunderstandings is much easier as Mr Tony Chee is just one message away. With the additional set of resources to work with, they are able to spend their time in a more productive manner.

I have been Mr Chee's student since Sec 4. The fact that I have chosen to enlist his help in JC proves his lessons' effectiveness in helping me catch up with the school's curriculum. After every exam (and even small class tests), Mr Chee would painstakingly review my papers, leaving small annotations of what mistakes he thought I had made and giving feedback on how he felt I could improve from that mistake. In addition, after lessons, I often ask him physics-related questions, be it from tuition or school, and he would swiftly give detailed, handwritten explanations (with drawings), which helped me to understand the issue better. When teaching specific chapters, Mr Chee would conduct small experiments to better help students grasp sticky concepts more effectively. He is a very dedicated tutor with a lot of passion for teaching, and I would highly recommend him as a tutor, be it for A'Levels or O'Levels. With his help, my grades have seen massive improvements during O’Levels, from an E8 to A1.
