The national examinations are one of the most daunting periods of a students’ (and parents!) life, and it does not help that the competition bars are raised every year. All we hope for are good grades so that the next stages of life can come easy. So we do what we do best. Be kiasu and go for tuition classes after school and on weekends.
As Singaporeans are the epitome of kiasu, children are sent for tuition as soon as primary school which was also part of the reason we now have an influx of tuition centres even in shopping malls. With so many choices at hand, how do we know what’s best in the current market?
This article will take a look at the 8 best physics tuition centres in all of Singapore. With these 8 centres, you can bid goodbye to all your previous physics misconceptions that do nothing but pull your grades down!
Note: This list is strictly not in order.
1. Best Physics Tuition
Just like its name suggests, Best Physics Tuition is indeed the top Physics tuition centre in all of Singapore. This centre offers extra coaching in Physics for all A-level, O-level and IP students. Mr Tony Chee was previously a MOE teacher with highly established credentials in the matter of Physics. With his plethora of qualifications, awards and accolades, Mr Tony then kick-started Best Physics Tuition in 2015.
A large multitude of students was able to regain their confidence in Physics by scoring distinctions for the national examinations. All the classes held here are taught personally by Mr Tony to ensure that the delivery of lessons and materials are at its finest too.
Stop hoping for a miracle and give Best Physics Tuition the honours of soaring your grades up high now!

4. Learning for Keeps
For a decade now, Mr Kenneth Low has been giving his undivided attention to Physics only. He ensures that all classes are capped at 7 students maximum to promise sufficient attention. Mr Low takes on all the classes held and makes sure to approach students individually to ensure they are clear about the concepts and materials taught.
He also works hard at refining his lesson delivery and exercises, as well as explanations for the benefit of every student enrolled. Mr Low finds it rewarding when his students start loving Physics as much as he does! This was also one of the reasons why he started Learning for Keeps.
P.S. Students who require a tailored topic sequence or more focused attention can opt for the one-to-one home physics tuition instead!
