News of Super Tutor & his Super Students

Mr. Phang is the only tutor in Singapore who is as reputable as his equally newsworthy students.

These students from top schools are less concerned about whether their tutor can give them good results, because they have already reached the pinnacle of Singapore.

Instead, they seek tutors like themselves who are much brighter than their school teachers, in order to achieve a phenomenon in physics known as "resonance".

Herein lies the advantage of the tuition industry, where students can pick and choose tutors who match their frequency, just like shoes that match their size.

Raffles schools take 20 of 21 top places
For RI, RGS, results are fitting swansong; institutions to drop exam from this year

THE Raffles school family has enjoyed a virtual clean sweep of top honours in their O-level swansong. When the results were released yesterday, all but one of the 21 O-level students who posted 10 A1 scores came from the two schools.

For both Raffles Institution (RI) and Raffles Girls' School (RGS), which from this year are dropping the O levels, it was a fitting farewell. Both schools will now solely operate the Integrated Programme, which allows students to skip the O levels and take their A levels in Raffles Junior College (RJC) in the sixth year.

Scoring 11 A1s
From RGS: Chuah Yuxin, Gao Yuan, Han Huiqing, Kang Zi Han (back row third from right), Inez Khoo, Liang Lehui, Liu Chen, Yvonne Sim, Wendy Teo, Wee Shu Min, Xu Ding Jiao and Sandhya Krishnan.

POLITICIANS are not the only ones trying to create a blueprint for change.

Last Friday, secondary and junior college students presented ideas that they felt would help improve lives through engineering, in a competition called the Create 2010 finals.

The event, held for the first time, was organised by Creators of Tomorrow, a private sector interest group formed by 12 engineers, entrepreneurs and designers based in Singapore.

The prize - a five-day trip to the facilities of automobile company BMW in Munich, Germany - was awarded to Raffles Institution (Junior College) students Ngo Hoang Gia, 18; Quek Keng Yong, 17; and Han Qiao, 19.

NUS High School Tops Physics Olympiad

NUS High tops physics contest

NUS High School bags top prizes in Singapore Physics Olympiad in its first showing

By Jane Ng


CHAMPION: Fiona Foo, 17, was the overall winner.

THE National University of Singapore (NUS) High School has had a stellar first showing in the Singapore Physics Olympiad, bagging the crown as the overall school champion as well as producing the overall winner, 17-year-old Fiona Foo.

Fiona, who bagged the top prize, said she enjoyed being able to pursue something she loved. She prepared for the olympiad during nights in the school hostel with the rest of her classmates.

'We took an elective to prepare for the olympiad and the classes were held at night. It was a relaxed atmosphere and I took it because I enjoyed the subject.

'There was no pressure to perform, getting the top prize was just icing on the cake,' said the only child of an accountant and a businessman, whose favourite topic was quantum information theory.

According to the Institute of Physics Singapore, which organised the competition, the top prize has traditionally been dominated by male students.

The prize presentation was held on Wednesday at Micron Semiconductor Asia. Micron Foundation was the sponsor for the olympiad.

By Sandra Davie, Senior Education Correspondent

SINGAPORE'S newest medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, has picked its inaugural batch of 54 students out of more than 800 A-list applicants.

The school, being set up by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Imperial College London, said that besides stellar academic qualifications, those chosen had shown the potential to be outstanding patient-centred doctors.

The school shortlisted 440 to attend eight interviews with health-care professionals such as nurses as well as members of the public, who assessed the candidates from the patient's perspective.

Those who made the inaugural batch - all Singaporeans - had almost perfect scores in the interviews and also aced their British BioMedical Admissions Test. Two out of three students are A-level holders and 90 per cent of them are among the top in their cohort.

2013 Singapore Book of Records Interview

Mr. Phang on:

Being a millionaire tutor

Who I am today is defined by the type of students who choose me, as much as they are defined by me. Students cannot choose a super teacher (in their school) but they can choose a super tutor.

His unique appeal

My students and their parents invariably ask "Has this tutor been proven?" rather than "What's the price?" I have been tried and proven by some of the sharpest students in Singapore, a stamp of quality that few tutors can offer.
