Calvin Kong Physics Tuition Classes 


As every learner is unique, an effective curriculum is one that differentiates teaching to cater to the broad spectrum of students, monitors their progress closely, and provides timely feedback.
— Calvin Kong

Regular Class

The weekly regular classes are recommended for students who

  1. wants to stretch their capacity and competency in the subject,

  2. seeks to benefit from a highly efficient academic programme that delivers large amount of content knowledge and skills within a short time,

  3. are not benefiting enough from their curriculum programme in their own schools, and

  4. wants to enjoy learning Physics!

The classes are aimed to help students achieve higher competency and confidence in the 2 Key Assessment Objectives stated by Cambridge International Examinations (O Level):

  1. Knowledge with Understanding

  2. Handling Information and Solving Problems

In these classes, I will

  1. teach the key concepts,

  2. go through examples in detail and allow students to apply what they have learnt through attempting carefully selected examination questions

  3. provide students with a wide range of materials that suits their personal learning style, and most importantly,

  4. guide students to become a more effective learner.

Other Charges

A one-time material fee of $50 is applicable to all students who join the centre at any time of the academic year.

This fee covers the basic materials for all chapters. It is payable on the first class and non-refundable.


Intensive Revision Class (IRC)

Each year, a series of Intensive Revision Classes (IRC) will be held during the school holidays. These optional classes are recommended for

  1. students who have not learn the topics in the weekly regular classes (e.g. students who just joined the centre) and/or

  2. those who need to rebuild their foundation to tackle higher order thinking questions that differentiates the A and B students.

The classes are aimed to help students achieve higher competencies and confidence in the 2 key Assessment Objectives stated by Cambridge International Examinations (O Level):

  1. Knowledge with Understanding

  2. Handling Information and Solving Problems

In these classes, I will

  1. teach the key concepts,

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. My child will not be able to make it for certain dates. Will there be more of such classes?

    The June Holiday Intensive Revision Classes (IRC) is the last of the entire series throughout the academic year. There will be no other IRCs for Secondary / IP 4 in 2018. There will be another round of IRCs for Secondary / IP 3 at the end of 2018.

  2. Why are there 2 classes arranged on the same day? Will the student be overloaded and not be able to pay attention?

    The classes are arranged in this manner so that it minimises travelling time. This is in response to feedback by numerous students who travelled a long distance to the centre venue. A 1-hour lunch break will allow students to refresh themselves. The Clementi Mall is just a minute walk away.

  3. Does a student still need to sign up for this Revision Classes if he/she signs up for the Regular Classes?

    The Revision Classes and weekly Regular Classes are independent. The Revision Classes revisit and rebuild concepts while the Regular Classes are covering new topics.
