We have also branched out to providing home tutoring services for Physics due to the numerous enquires made by parents who prefers tutors to coach their children at the comfort of their own home. Ever since its establishment a couple of years back, our Home Tutoring services have received rave reviews from parents as we have successfully taught many students who went on to achieve good results over the years.

Professional Full-Time Tutors
All of our teachers are teaching full-time and have of 7-15 years experience under their belt. Most of them are also scholarship holders and have achieved 1st Class Honours or went on to graduate studies. At the same time, they have also been registered with our Ministry of Education.
Improvement In Results
Students taught by us have experienced considerable improvements in their grades due to the personalised attention towards individual students where our teachers can identify and immediately work on the areas of weaknesses for each student. Under our intensive Physics curriculum, students will be gradually given questions of increasing difficulty as they progress in their Physics knowledge to provide a headstart amongst their school classmates.
Specialised Lesson Plans
Due to the 1-1 nature of home tutoring, lesson plans are carefully crafted to suit the individual needs of students. The pace of learning will also be adjusted accordingly where more time will be spent on the problem areas so that students will not fall behind in their school syllabus. Our tutors also provide the same lesson materials handed out to our group classes to maintain the quality of our lesson handouts.
1-to-1 Classrooms Available
If you feel that the home environment is not suitable for your children to learn in, we can offer alternative arrangements to have the 1-1 classes conducted at our classrooms. Rest assured that there are no additional fees for such arrangements (Advance notice to book the classrooms is required). Our classrooms are specially designed for students to pay attention during the lessons without external interference.

Why is there a broad spectrum of fees for tutors?
There are a few contributing factors to the difference in fees between our Physics teachers. We take the individual qualifications and the number of years of teaching as well as students’ and parents’ feedback into account when deciding the rates. The better the qualifications and the more teaching experience a teacher has, the higher the rates will be. The 4 key aspects we look into include:
- Number of years of teaching
- Educational Qualifications of Teacher
- Parents’ and students’ feedback
- Student Performance
(1) Student Performance
Students who approach us for Physics tuition have only one end goal in mind, which is doing well in their examinations. Therefore, our teachers are tasked with ensuring their students will improve under their care. We monitor every student’s performance closely to make sure our teachers are doing a good job in helping students perform in examinations and achieving their desired grades. Teachers who have helped their students to achieve remarkable and consistent improvements in their grades will naturally enjoy higher fees.
(2) Experience Level
Ex-school teachers and teachers who have been teaching for at least 10 years in the educational industry will command higher fees. However, we do ensure that all our teachers have at least 5 years’ worth of teaching experience to ensure that the quality standards are maintained. Although we cannot conclude that more experienced teachers translate to more effective teaching, but we have observed a noticeable trend between seasoned teachers and their proficiency level.
(3) Positive Reviews
Our staff do call up parents to provide updates and receive feedback from parents often. During these conversations, we will check with them on the teacher’s (a) professionalism, (b) reliability, (c) initiative in follow ups with students, (d) preparedness and etc. Teachers who have constantly receive positive feedback on their work will be awarded with the corresponding renumeration.
(4) Educational Qualifications
Our group of teachers come from many of the prestigious universities both in Singapore and overseas. In fact, some of them have even been awarded with scholarships for their university studies. Scholarship holders and excellent results in their field of studies do play a part in the marginally higher fees that they receive.

Home Tuition Features
- Focused and Personalised attention for Students
- Tailor-made lesson plan
- Great improvement in grades
- Highly qualified tutors (many are 1st Class Honours)
- Same comprehensive curriculum as centre classes
- All learning materials are provided
Our teachers follow the same comprehensive curriculum as our centre classes to ensure that quality is not compromised. However, the additional benefits of our home tuition services allow for our teachers to modify and tweak the lesson plan according to the student’s pace of learning and individual needs. Each lesson is made up of (1) lecture based learning, (2) practice tutorials and (3) review of concepts and practice questions. Lecture based learning is meant to supplement concepts learnt and to cover any gaps in teaching by the school teachers. This is also the perfect time to clear any doubts that students may face for new topics covered in school. Practice tutorials and assignments are designed to identify areas of weakness exhibited by students in their own work. Review of these tutorials and assignments will allow our teachers to introduce problem solving techniques when dealing with questions that they are not well-versed in.
The idea of an excellent curriculum plan involves guiding students progressively in an engaging and relaxing way and outdo their peers for their Physics examination. The first lesson will include the assessment of the student’s current standards based on their past examination scripts. This is followed by devising a suitable lesson plan for the student from the identified areas of weakness. Our teachers will incorporate unique and interactive methodologies to make each lesson fun and enjoyable while still build a good Physics foundation for the student. This makes the lessons highly targeted and effective and students who are home-tutored by us will usually see greater improvement compared to centre classes.
