1. Growing Market Demand for Physics Tuition in Singapore

Introduced at the Secondary 3 level, Physics is considered to be one of the more complex subject fields to grasp, giving rise to a demand for Physics Tuition in Singapore. To put it simply, learning physics is tough, that much the majority would agree and relate to. Physics is the study of how nature works using the language of mathematics and just like in Math, Physics is all about the fundamentals, and then applying them through the different layers of concepts. Many have found it difficult to even define physics, let alone master it. Hence, Physics is considered to be one of the many subjects that require extra learning support as Singapore’s education system progresses and becomes more difficult. Especially at the Junior College and University level, students are required to grasp the heavily-weighted subject well within an extremely short time frame of just 2 years and thus many see the need for a Physics tutor to guide them through the process.

It is a norm and expectation in Singapore for students to score As for most if not all subjects. However, with so many difficult subjects on hand to manage, such as Physics itself, where the masses struggle to cope with the syllabus, many have turned towards hiring a Physics tutor for guidance. This results in an increase in demand for Physics tuition in Singapore. With an increase in demand, the supply of Physics Tuition in Singapore will naturally increase as well, this is especially prevalent for O Level Physics Tuition & JC Physics Tuition. The Straits Times has reported an increase in enrichment centres in Singapore from an average of 700 in 2012 to 950 in 2019 and one can expect that figure to be way above 1,000 by now. As one of the major tuition agencies in Singapore, we too receive minimally 80 tuition requests for Physics at all levels monthly.

Physics tuition is in high demand in Singapore

Due to its high complexity and difficulty level, there is a high demand for Physics tuition in Singapore

 

2. In Search for the Best Physics Tuition in Singapore

With so many Physics Tuition options and Enrichment Centres and specialists scattered all over Singapore, finding the most suitable one or rather “the best” can be quite challenging. “What makes this tuition centre better than the other”, “Will engaging in this Tuition option guarantee results” is one of the few most frequently asked questions when it comes to decision making. With the increasing number of tuition establishments yearly, is it without a doubt that parents/students will often be caught in a dilemma. Here at Mindflex, we recognize this dilemma, and thus, we have carefully curated a list of 25 of the most reviewed Physics Tuitions in Singapore across various levels as well as the merits and demerits of each one of them.

Physics Tuition in Singapore can be generally categorised into 3 broad options:

1) Group Tuition
– Tuition & Enrichment Centre Establishments
– Private Tutors’ Group Classes
2) Online Tuition
3) 1-1 Private Home Tuition

3. Science Tuition & Enrichment Centres

3.1. Advantages

Physics Tuition and Enrichment Centres are educational institutions running in parallel with schools. But unlike schools, they nurture students in a small group usually between 2 to 20 students per class. This can be seen in some renowned centres like The Physics Cafe and Learners Lodge. There is a list of plus points to attending tuition classes but below are a few of the key advantages parents and students can keep an eye out for before deciding whether to enroll in one.

1. Lower Monthly Fees Incurred

  • Tuition centres mostly cost lower as compared to 1-to-1 tuition as they are conducted in a group setting
  • Rates ≠ Results
  • There are accredited Physics tuition centres in the market that are very much affordable; $180-$200/4 x 2hour lessons

2. Enhanced Peer Sharing and Learning

  • With a smaller and more controlled class setting and environment, students will be able to share their ideas freely and learn from their peers 
  • Like-minded students who share similar academic and personal goals can enable and support each other, making learning more effective 
  • A mistake by one often presents as a learning opportunity for another 
  • Students can better work on their analytical and critical thinking skills through group discussions
Students can learn Physics better by discussing topics and questions together

Some students learn better in a group environment, where they can discuss on Physics questions and solutions together

3. Multiple Branches Islandwide

  • Many large tuition chains have outlets spread across the island
  • This eases the need to travel long distances just to get to an outlet, making it more convenient for students and parents 
  • Students can also arrange for rescheduled classes to be at another outlet/branch of their convenience

4. In-House Curriculum and Materials 

  • Most Physics tuition centres have their own original notes and materials which will be provided to students 
  • Some tuition centres like Physics Academy also design their own curriculum for students as well as unique guidebooks authored by their own tutors
  • Unlike 1-to-1 Home Tuition, tuition centres often have a compilation of notes and materials from different top schools 

5. Free or Discounted Trial Lessons

  • Many tuition centres generally provide a free or discounted trial lesson to entice parents and students to sign up 
  • Through the trial lesson, tutors get a chance of presenting themselves while students can assess the suitability of a tutor before enrolling

3.2. Main Considerations

1. Are they MOE-Registered?

  • Any educational centre or institution exceeding 10 students have to be registered with MOE
  • Despite the 99% of legitimate centres in Singapore, there is still a minority that are not registered
  • Therefore it is crucial that parents check for the proof of registration in order to make informed and accurate decisions regarding enrolment
  • Some centres have also branded themselves in hiring only MOE-trained Physics tutors, so do keep a look out for this too

2. Track Record of Tuition Centre

  • Most tuition centres display their “star” students and their grades improvements as an indication of the quality of their lessons and assurance of results 
  • Reviews/ Testimonials of a tuition centre are also usually readily available online for parents to gauge the credibility

3. Class Size

  • Different centres have different class sizes they believe is best for learning. Some have classes as small as 2-3 students and some as large as 30 students
  • It is important for parents to enquire clearly about the class sizes and thereafter, opt for their preferred class size so as to ensure optimal learning for the student  

4. Flexibility with Make-Up Sessions & Commitment Period

  • One common issue parents/students face is the hassle of rescheduling classes due to health or personal reasons
  • While most Physics tuition centres allow for make-up lessons, it is important to still check the terms and conditions before enrolment to avoid any unnecessary dispute
  • Most centres also have a minimum notice period before any termination of classes varying from weeks to a month

5. Teaching Style

  • There are 3 main types of learning styles – auditory, visual or kinaesthetic
  • As each centre has curated its own way of teaching, it is important for parents to note the type of learning style which will suit your child best
  • For auditory learners, a tutor who is able to verbalise and explain concepts clearly would be best suited
  • For visual learners, drawn explanations such as infographics would be ideal
  • For kinaesthetic learners, hands-on activities are recommended
  • Researching on the teaching techniques and pedagogy each Physics tuition centre applies is paramount in deciding which one to enroll your child in

When considering the various Physics tuition centres options in Singapore, parents should ensure that attending lessons at a tuition centre will value-add to their child’s learning and not add further stress to them. Sometimes the extra compulsory homework that comes with the lesson on top of school work may be too immense for the child. This may defeat the purpose of enrolling in a tuition centre in the first place. Ultimately, do make sure that your decision is able to clear the fundamental objective of having Physics tuition in the first place – to make sure that your child’s doubts are cleared and to strengthen his/her understanding of the Physics concepts.

3.3. Recommendations

After an in-depth research across the myriad of tuition centre websites and marketing materials, MindFlex has carefully organized a list of recommended Physics Tuition options in Singapore. These are centres which mostly specialise in teaching Physics, hence, differentiating themselves from the many usual established/ non-established ones. 

We have separated our recommendations into two main categories: 

Category 1: Secondary / IP / JC Physics (16 options)
Category 2: IB Physics (4 options)

Amongst the list of tuition centres we have curated, there are some which specialise in other subjects besides Physics, such as Chemistry and Biology, or Math. On top of that, a handful of tuition centres do offer Special Programmes such as the Physics Olympiad. Within this list, we have excluded main players in the market like The Learning Lab and Mavis Tutorial Centre.   (*All images below were adopted from the tutors’ websites or via public online platforms)

4. Physics Private Tutors’ Group Classes

Besides tuition centres, there are also a handful of “Super Tutors” who have been featured on various media platforms for their exceptional teaching ability and provide top-quality Physics tuition in Singapore. They can be considered a group of ‘elite’ tutors that offers top quality lessons at a costly price. Despite that, trends have shown that parents are ever willing to splurge for their children when it comes to tuition, for instance a parent offering $25,000 to secure a spot in JC Economics Super Tutor Mr Anthony Fok’s class.

4.1 Advantages

1. Private 1 to 1 / Small Class Setting

  • Such class sizes are generally smaller, with either just one student or 2-3 students at maximum 
  • Small/Private classes are designed so that tutors can cater to each and every individual in the class, offering extensive help and ensuring optimised learning 

2. Direct Communication With Your Physics Tutor

  • As Private Physics tutors operate independently, they are mostly directly contactable after tuition hours 
  • This allows the tutor to better able converse and clarify the doubts of their students after tuition hours
  • Some tutors even permits students to consult with them via Whatsapp after lesson hours
  • Parents are also able to gather direct feedback from the Physics tutor on their child’s progress without the need to go through several channels like the usual tuition centres

3. More “Invested” Tutors

  • Most Physics Private tutors market their tuition services under their own personal branding, meaning to say that they rely on testimonies of their direct students  
  • Hence, it is a given that these tutors will put in more effort into the quality of lessons produced as the results of their students directly affects the personal brand of the tuition centre

4.2. Main Considerations

1. Actual Tutor Conducting The Lessons

  • There are many Private Tutors in Singapore who have became successful and moved on to expand its operations by opening up multiple centres across the island and hiring more professional tutors
  • For example, Maths Super Tutor Ms Celine Loi of Joss Sticks Tuition Centre employs 20 tutors
  • While the quality of tuition is often assures, many would largely still prefer the “Super Tutor” himself/herself as the one teaching them so as to reap maximum benefits and make their money’s worth
  • To do so, it is important to check the specific tutor for specific classes and make sure it is your desired tutor that is conducting lessons!

2. Rates and Schedule 

  • It is known that Private Tuitions are often more costly than Group Tuitions, but there are certain “branded” tutors who charge a lot higher than the market rate
  • “Super Tutors” also often have a list of students waiting to enroll with them, hence, be sure to check for the waiting time and see if it aligns with your child’s timing, For urgent cases, parents may want consider other Physics Tuition options 
  • Clarifying your child’s doubts should be prioritised over waiting for a specific tuition slot

3. Compatibility

  • It is also crucial to assess the compatibility of the types of tuitions in order to maximise your child’s learning
  • Private 1-to-1 tuition may not be everyone’s cup of tea, some learn better through peer sharing and discussions in a group setting 
  • Choosing the right type of tuition option directly determines the effectiveness of the child’s learning

5. Online Physics Tuition in Singapore

Physics Tuition can also be conducted virtually via Online Lessons. Online Tutoring is a new, modernised approach to learning due to market trends and technology advances. The number of youths taking up Online Lessons have been consistently increasing in recent years and months especially. This new form of learning and teaching comes with a myriad of benefits of which, the most prominent reason being convenience. Tutors also benefit from this change as now, they would only need a working laptop with a camera, a built-in camera and microphone instead of the traditional brick and mortar. The quality of Online Tuition has also been improving over the years and the stigma against Online Tuition is slowly fading as parents and students get more accustomed to the practice of having Online Lessons amidst the current Covid-19 Pandemic. Some of the widely used platforms include Zoom, Skype and Microsoft Teams.

Online Physics Tuition has been an increasingly popular and effective option in recent years due to the COVID-19 pandemic

5.1. Advantages

1. Lower Rates 

  • By conducting Physics tuition lessons online, there is no need for tuition centres to rent a space and private tutors can save on the travelling fare
  • As such, the cost of tuition will be reduced

2. Convenience

  • Physics Tutors and students are now able to conduct and receive lessons via online platforms at the place of their convenience as long as there is connection to the internet
  • Location plays a critical role to many when in search of Physics Tuition opttions
  • With the advent of online learning methods, students and tutors are no longer geographically bounded and can take up or give lessons anywhere

3. Benefits of Technology

  • Students can enjoy “front-row” learning through online lessons. This is unlikely in a physical tuition context as there are limited front row seats and students at the back may often find it difficult to hear or see
  • With online lessons, students can also enjoy the benefit of being to record a lesson with ease and replay it later on when needed 
  • Notes and Materials can also be shared ahead of lessons, allowing for efficient lesson preparation 

5.2. Main Considerations

1. Internet Access & Technical Issues

  • Quality of online lessons would definitely be different due to the lack of physical face-to-face interactions – something that parents, tutors or students may be uncomfortable with
  • Physics work often requires visuals and diagrams to be drawn, so the online platform used should be adequately equipped for easy image sharing and drawing to make it clear for students to see, as if it were in real life
  • Students will not be able to actively partake in Hand-On Physics practical experiments which could be essential for illustrating certain Physics concepts

2. Quality and Effectiveness of Lessons Provided

  • The absence of physical face to face interaction between tutor and student may directly affect the effectiveness of lessons
  • As lessons are conducted online, there are many cases whereby lessons turn into a 1-way lecture with the Physics tutor constantly talking throughout the duration of the lesson
  • Without being able to read the body and facial language of the student, tutors may not be able to tell if the student understands what is being taught or if he/she is following the lesson
  • It is also more difficult to build a tutor-student bond and this lack of bond may affect the quality of lessons delivered as tutors may not fully understand the student’s learning ability and type

3. Chances of Procrastination

  • With online lessons, the discipline in a student is very important as no one is physically present to nudge in the event he/she gets distracted 
  • It is also common for students to wander off in their own thoughts or doze off while in a group online tuition setting as they are in the comfort of their homes

6. 1-to-1 Private Science Home Tuition

Hiring a 1 to 1 Private Home Tutor for Physics is a preferred choice for many as it serves a myriad of benefits and the majority would splurge on hiring the best Home Tutor to achieve results. In a separate article, we have done a more in-depth research and write up with regards to the 8 Reasons To Hire Home Tuition over Enrolling In tuition centres. Below is a short summary of the key educational benefits hiring a Home Tutor brings about in Singapore.

6.1. Advantages

1. More focused 1-to-1 Teaching

  • While hiring a private tutor may be slightly more costly than other options the market, the direct benefits that students get to enjoy is a more personalised and individual teaching 
  • As lessons are conducted on a 1-to-1 basis, the Physics tutor is able to put his full attention and focus on the student 
  • This means that the student’s misconceptions and queries will be attended to and clarified immediately, making the session more efficient and effective 
  • Students may not be brave enough or may not get the chance to voice out their queries during group lessons, so private tuition definitely presents a better opportunity for these students
  • Most Private Physics Tutors also run independently, allowing students to consult with them even after tuition hours via Whatsapp
  • In a large tuition class, students may not be able to enjoy this privillege as many tutors do not entertain queries after work hours

2. Accustomed Teaching

  • In a private 1-to-1 tuition setting, Physics tutors are able to cater their teaching pace to the student’s learning abilities 
  • This will benefit both slow and fast learners as tutors are private tutors will accustom their teaching style targeted specifically to individual needs so as to to get maximum efficiency in grasping Physics concepts
  • While this is possible in a private tuition setting, it may be difficult in a group-tuition setting as the Physics tutor conducting the lesson have to teach according to the average pace and style in order to cater to everyone in the classroom 
  • That being said, for most cases, private Physics tutors are even able to teach ahead of the school’s syllabus to better equip students for school tests and exams

3. Flexible Scheduling

  • Private home tuition is the only option in the market that has the greatest flexibility when it comes to scheduling for lessons
  • Unlike tuition centres, private home tuition does not run based on a fixed schedule and often, students are able to communicate with the tutor himself/herself for the arrangement of a slot as it only involves two parties 
  • Make-up lessons are also easier to arrange
  • Additional lessons can also be easily arranged with the tutor if needed, especially nearing the O/A Level Physics exams

4. Greater Parental Involvement

  • Private 1-to-1 home tuition is also the only option whereby parents can be actively involved in monitoring their child
  • This is unlike tuition centres whereby tutors are automatically assigned to classes by the management
  • Parents are also able to get direct feedback from tutors regarding their child and vice versa if the student has got feedback for the tutor 
  • With this, lessons can then be further improved and customised according to the comments given 
  • If lessons are conducted at the student’s home, parents are also able to monitor the structure of lesson and suitability of tutor 

5. Learning Environment

  • For most cases, private tuitions are conducted at the student’s home, unless requested otherwise 
  • Home is seen as as a safe, comfortable and conducive environment for the majority and being able to hold lessons at home is a privilege that comes with a cost 
  • This allows students to feel more comfortable around tutors and be able to voice out their doubts more freely, fostering effective learning

6.2. Main Considerations

1. Qualification

  • This is a crucial part when it comes to hiring a private tutor for Physics and parents/students should always check the credibility of the tutor whom they are engaging 
  • For instance, when engaging in an Ex/Current MOE Tutor, you are paying for the title and the NIE Certificate which Part/Full Tutors do not hold, hence parents may request for the NIE Certificate for verification purposes
  • It is also advisable for parents/students to hire Physics tutors who have Physics Related Certificates such as a Degree in Physics/Mechanical Engineering/Electrical Engineering etc.
  • As an established tuition agency, Mindflex goes the extra mile to do up these on your behalf

2. Experience, Testimonials and Current Student Base

  • Ensuring that Tutors have a good track record is also an important factor 
  • A tutor with a good track record such as the experience and testimonials received would more likely be better-equipped to help your child 
  • Testimonials are a good form of assessing the tutors credibility as they is unbiased
  • Do look out for the Tutor’s current student base as it is advisable to hire a Physics Tutor who are teaching students of the same subject since those tutors are generally more well informed of the requirements of the particular subject 

3. Cost of Tuition

  • Hiring a Private Physics Tutor is definitely on the pricier side as compared to Group Tuition at a tuition centre 
  • Depending on the qualification and experiences of the Physics Tutor as well as level of the student, the rates will differ
  • Super Tutors are usually the priciest so do make sure to hire a Physics Tutor that is within your budget
  • A general guideline to the rates are as follows: Part-Time Tutors: ($25-50/Hour), Full-Time Tutors: ($35-80/Hour), Ex/Current MOE Teachers: ($60-120/Hour)
  • Find out more about tuition rates here

4. Learning and Teaching Style

  • Since every student has got different learning styles and preference, it is important to choose a Physics Tutor that will best compliment your child so as to foster a more effective and conducive learning environment 
  • Some students work and learn better in a small group of 2-3. In such cases, it is also viable to invite friends and conduct the lesson in a small group
  • The engaged Physics Tutor should also be able to build a good rapport with your child 
  • Here at MindFlex, we are pleased to help parents and students engage in the most suitable Physics Tutor. In the case of an incompatible tutor, it is also our pleasure to change tutors for you
