Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Are you really the one teaching?

A: Yes.

What you see is what you get in the news
前线追踪.

It's impossible to hire good tutors, who work for themselves. Only tutors who can't get students need to work for bosses who are street-smart rather than book-smart (sadly the case in every profession).

Q: What percentage of your students get distinctions?

A: Higher than other tutors, but an unfair comparison as somehow Mr. Phang's students have higher average PSLE than most teachers.

"there is no better place to learn physics than in Mr. Phang's class" - A*STAR Scholar Hongjie (NJC)

Sadly top schools don't set PSLE COP for teachers. End up, most tutors in Bishan/Bt.Timah are just normal grads name-dropping their students' alma mater there (try Google) instead of proud alumni like fellow Rafflesians Irwin, Kelvin and Hwachongian Melvin who are genuinely brilliant.

Fee Structure

Note: Fees are adjusted every quarter for new intake but once a student joins, it will remain unchanged till the end of Sec 4 or JC2 for secondary and junior college students, respectively, provided there is no gap in payment for any reason. Therefore, within the same class, there could be some students who pay a lower fee because they have joined earlier.

Mr. Phang has explained this in the news article on Jun 17, 2010 (click to enlarge).

Translation:

Parent asked why students in the same class were charged different fees

A parent complained to the press that a certain physics tutor charged different fees for students in the same class.

Mdm Tan told the press that after reading the 'Super Tutors' newspaper article two years ago about a certain well-known tutor teaching physics, she enrolled her son who was in Sec 3 last year. The fee was $320 for 4 lessons. This year, when she introduced a friend's son to this tutor, the tutor charged the friend's son who joined the same class $360 for 4 lessons.

Mdm Tan also found out that some students in the same class were paying only $280 for 4 lessons. She was puzzled why students in the same class paid different fees.

Mdm Tan said that she did not raise this issue with the tutor because she was afraid the tutor might not want to continue teaching her son if she had done so.

Physics tutor explained that students who joined earlier enjoyed "Early Bird Discounts"

Physics tutor Mr. Phang Yu Hon explained that he gave "Early Bird Discounts" to students who joined earlier. For example, those who joined the Sec 3 class before school reopened enjoyed a $20 discount. As their fees remained unchanged after school reopened, they continued to pay a lower fee than those who joined later.

Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE)

The Executive Director of CASE, Mr. Seah Seng Choon, said that it was up to individual tutors to set their fees. However, the tutor should inform the parents that students who joined at different times would be charged different fees, so that they could make an informed decision.
