The sight of students huddled together in groups, discussing the complex matters of physics, is all too common in Singapore especially when examinations are around the corner. A-Level students are more thorough in their preparations, because their exams are more complex. One of the ways that Singaporean students are using to prepare for examination is through revising past papers. The past question papers give them an idea of what their exams will be. Another good way that they use to prepare is by explaining to other students what they have already learnt so that they master it even better.
Although some students may succeed by group discussions and revision of past exam papers, a good number of students require assistance from professional physics tutors. Students normally encounter methodological problems in typical Physics classes, and this is quite hard to master in school or with ones own effort. Although a physics tutor is not necessarily a magician, he or she can help a student to succeed in their physics course by providing methodologies harnessed from the practices of various schools.
