“We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.”~Galileo Galilei.
We live in a technologically advanced age, but the average person relies on advanced technology without understanding how it works. Much of this knowledge is contained within the discipline of Physics.
With physics, a student develops a ‘sense’ of wonder and curiosity about how things work. This motivation to learn is of paramount importance. A good Physics Tuition at the introductory level should instil an interest in the subject that will grow and flourish in the long run.
A small number of basic principles and laws of physics can be applied to predict a wide range of physical events and phenomena. Therefore, teaching students the nature of physics inculcates in them an understanding of the importance of science and how it can be applied to our day to day lives.
In Singapore, physics is introduced as an ‘O’ Level and ‘N’ level subject to make students aware of energy, matter, and their interrelationships.
“It focuses on investigating natural phenomena and then applying patterns, models (including mathematical ones), principles, theories, and laws to explain the physical behaviour of the universe.”
"A quality Physics tutor, time and sheer hard work are the three ingredients that make the learning process of Physics easier and effective.”
Many physics students, both past and present, would agree that physics is one of the most difficult subjects in secondary school. And for those who are new to the subject such as secondary 3 students, learning physics is like learning a new language containing a myriad of technical jargon and unknown symbols.
Physics demands a deep understanding, technical comprehension, and a curious mind. These are two main factors that discourage many students from studying physics:
Given these factors, it is not surprising that many students find it hard to ace the subject. Hiring an experienced physics tutor will ensure that your child gets a thorough understanding of the subject, which will allow him or her to excel in future physics examinations.
Physics is a branch of the tree of science that helps to describe how nature works using the language of mathematics. It is the most fundamental of the experimental sciences that attempts to describe the behaviour of the smallest building blocks of matter, light, the Universe, and everything in between.
The Singapore education system gives science a special place in its curriculum. Science is introduced at the Primary and the Secondary School levels. In the beginning, students are taught the very basic and general form of Science. As they start to progress, specialisations such as Physics are introduced.
FAMILIARIZATION WITH PHYSICS SYLLABUS

|4||International Baccalaureate (IB) Physics Core||Physics and Physical Measurement; Mechanics; Thermal Physics;Oscillations and Waves; Electric Currents;Fields and Forces;Atomic and Nuclear Physics; Energy, Power and Climate Change.||Paper1- Multiple Choice;Paper2- Data based and extended-response Questions;Paper3- Short Answer Questions;||The exam demand students to be creative and apply his knowledge, methods, and techniques of scientific studies in most effective manner.|
As seen in the ‘syllabus’, it is clear a student needs to excel both in theoretical and practical knowledge to achieve good grades in a physics exam. To achieve both these demands effectively, we believe that a physics tutor will be of great help.
