Sadly top schools don't set PSLE COP for teachers (Google shocking news of I.P. teachers who were normal students).
End up, tutors setting up shop in Bishan & Bt. Timah are very normal grads trumpeting their students' alma mater but not their own except a few fellow Rafflesians Irwin, Kelvin, Jack & Hwachongians Melvin, Julian who dare publicise their good degrees.
Parents who're top school alumni asked "What else is new?" but others should heed Law Prof. Dr. Madonsela:
"I need to listen well so that I hear what is not said."

As basic physical science, physics is an essential subject that helps people to understand the structure of matter and the interactions between the elementary constituents of what we can observe in the universe. With the knowledge gained by studying physics, one can understand more about the macroscopic and sub-microscopic aspect of nature, including the nature of the once unknown electromagnetic, gravitational and nuclear force field. By discovering the comprehensive principles that govern our universe, phenomena can be explained or at least better understood. Thus, physics is a fundamental part of science that should be studied by all students at least once.
While it may be essential to study physics, many students may lack the proper coaching needed that can help them excel. After all, instead of only striving for mediocre grades, one should work to achieve the highest distinction for their O-level, A-level, JC or IB exams. Understanding and observation are key skills that are needed to obtain the top marks in any subject, but more so when studying physics. The demanding nature of physics is one that requires students to not only be capable of memorising fundamental concepts but also know how to apply them to questions readily. Despite a student’s hard work, his or her results may remain below expectations and not reflect the amount of effort that was put into studying the subject. With the help of a secondary school or JC physics tutor in Singapore, a student can master concepts that they are uncertain about, and receive the mental stimulation needed to tackle any unexpected questions without worries.
As seen from his list of extensive qualifications mentioned on the website, Mr Phang Yu Hon is undoubtedly qualified to be a physics tutor for different academic levels in Singapore including secondary and JC level. His tuition classes can help students to maintain their excellent results, or provide the assistance needed to attain an A grade. Unlike other physics tutors in Singapore, Mr Phang focuses on pushing students to achieve the best results and is not satisfied with slight improvements in a student's grades. Throughout his years as a physics tutor in Singapore, he has helped many secondary school, JC and IB students achieve their desired results, exceeding the expectations of both students and their parents. With his tuition classes, students can digest the more challenging concepts that they may not be able to grasp with just school classes alone. Apart from his thorough explanations, Mr Phang can also provide more stimulating questions that will ensure the students are kept on their toes and can constantly rise to the occasion; answering even the most difficult question.
Mr Phang has received numerous commendations from the press and is considered as one of the best physics tutors in Singapore. If you have any questions or would like to join his lessons, please contact him at the number provided above.
Does Mr Phang conduct one-on-one tuition classes?
No. All physics tuition classes by Mr Phang are group-based. Mr Phang believes that all good tutors eventually progress from one-on-one tuition to group tuition, like how world-class musicians progress from private performances to headlining their own concerts.
How many classes are held every week?
Mr Phang typically conducts 8 classes every week, with two timeslots per study level. There are also extra, optional classes added for those who wish to get more help!
What makes Mr Phang’s tuition classes stand out from the rest?
For Mr Phang’s students, the thing they love most about his classes is his humour and passion. Even if you start out without much love for physics, Mr Phang’s physics-related jokes and stories will make you appreciate physics so much more. As they say, passion is infectious!
Does Mr Phang conduct trial classes for interested students?
Mr Phang only offers trial classes for students who want to try out a higher level class. For example, secondary school students who have already grasped the concepts for Sec 4 Physics and want to try out a JC level class, but not sure if they can handle it.
