‘O’ Level Physics Tuition

Physics Tuition

Upper Secondary & ‘O’ Level

Our “O” level Physics tuition prepares students for the ‘O’ level examination. This subject may be a core subject for some schools for upper secondary education while some may be optional. Secondary 3 is the time where students find themselves immersed with hectic school work and activities; leaving home early but back home late. We believe preparing for the ‘O’ level exams start from Secondary 3. To help secondary students cope with Physics, our tuition provides:

Small Class Size ▾

Upper secondary ‘O’ level Physics is more challenging than lower secondary’s. Our small class size capped at 6 allows teachers to be effective in coaching our students. Discussion are usually more intensive than lower secondary.

Worksheets & Notes ▾

As a Physics tuition centre, we compile our own worksheets to be given to students for practice. We also provide Physics summary notes that give concise understanding and application of various topics. The summary notes are exclusive to our students only.

Exam Preparation ▾

Our primary aim for Physics tuition is to prepare students for ‘O’ level exams. We not only go through papers 1 & 2 but also guide students in their practical exams. Students get to have some hands-on session at our laboratory.

Students in the upper secondary can either choose Physics as a pure subject or as a combined subject together with either Biology or Chemistry. Upper secondary Physics tuition prepares students for the GCE ‘O’ Level examinations. Students are required to sit for 3 papers having the following weightage:

There are 5 sections with 22 different topics to be covered as listed below. We have also highlighted the topics that posed a challenge to most students.

* Topics/ sub-topics most students find challenges with

+ Topics for Pure Physics students only; Light (divergent lens for Pure Physics)

What We Do at Habitat

From our experience, many students do not understand the concepts well enough, which eventually they cannot apply the concepts, thus challenges in solving questions in tests and exams. Therefore our ‘O’ Level Physics tuition first focuses on understanding key concepts and its application. When tackling any Physics problems, we apply our Habitat’s 5-step (T-I-C-K-S) Physics solving method:

When tackling any Physics problems, we apply our Habitat’s 5-step (T-I-C-K-S) Physics solving method:

Using this 5-step Physics solving method, we train our students to have a systematic approach in solving any Physics question. Our secondary Physics tuition is filled with analogies and real-life illustrations to make learning Physics interesting and enjoyable. Learning Physics would be easier if students can relate them to their daily lives. Our centre also provides Physics summary notes, which are exclusive only to our students.

As part of the nation’s effort for self-directed and online learning, we have also prepared our THAT Challenge for students to test their Physics fundamentals. This is a free tool for public use and we hope more students can benefit from it.

Habitat also provides ‘O’ Level Chemistry tuition. Many of our students who enrol our upper secondary Physics tuition also enrol in our E Math tuition and/ or A Math tuition.

An example of Habitat’s TICKS solving methodology is shown in the video below:

Words from Physics Tuition Students

“Hi teacher Eunice! You teach very well. Your explanations are very clear and can be easily understood. Classes with you were not boring… they were fun, and helpful in every way. Also for my physics to be able to consistently score As and Bs for the past two years, I’m really thankful for your guidance. Thank you for the effort and the help you have given me for the past two years. Your classes were great.”

Tan Xuan Kai

Guangyang Secondary School

“Physics – I joined at the start of the year with test score of around 60%. Under 5 months of guidance, I managed to attain 72% during my mid year exams and consistently score As throughout the year. In the recent prelim exams, I managed to keep my score at an A2. I am very grateful to teacher Eunice for guiding me through my physics journey! Chemistry – I came to chemistry classes to ensure that I will continue to do well.”
