“Physics Academy Helped Me To Get And Maintain My Good Grades And Give Me Confidence In Physics”
When I joined Physics Academy a few weeks before my secondary 3 end of year examination, I was clueless about the chapter light. I just couldnt grasp the concept of how the critical angle works. However after joining this tuition, miraculously, I was able to understand light within the next 2 weeks. I was able to get ample of practice and help from Mr Lai, the physics tuition teacher.
With his clear explanations, I was able to understand light very well. A few weeks later in my sec3, end of year examination, I was able to ace all the questions I previously didnt understand about light. Soon enough, light-the chapter that scratched my head for weeks became my favourite topic. Now in sec4, having join physics academy for 7 months I was already able to jump and improve my grades fro my B4 to an A1 in physics. Physics academy helped me to get and maintain my good grades and gave me confidence in Physics. My only regret is that I have not joined earlier. 😁

Mr. Lai helped me to understand the concepts and answering techniques better and I learnt to answer in an accurate and concise manner.
I gained confidence in the subject and progressed faster as with better understanding my studying became more effective. Through Mr. Lai’s sessions I was exposed to how the relevant concepts can be applied to other situations and I gained more interest and enjoyed studying physics.
I am really thankful for an enjoyable learning experience and I progressed from U in June to A in A Levels.

U To A Grade In 6 Months (Attended Mastery I-Class):
“Notes & Worksheets Are Very Detiled, Students Can Focus To Absorb Knowledge During Lesson!”
Mr. Lai emphasizes the concept of each physics topic repetitively each week. He gave us an array of practices with different types of questions on the same concept, and thus, we are also tested on our ability to apply the concept onto different questions.
Mr. Lai is a very patient tutor who encourages and supports every single student by providing help even it is after tuition time. His notes and worksheets are very detailed, hence students can focus on absorbing knowledge during lesson time instead of copying down notes.
From a student whose results improved drastically from a U grade to A grade in A Levels, it would have been unachieveable without Mr. Lai.

Allowed Me To Understand The Physics Concepts Better Instead Of Merely Being An Abstract Idea:
“The Journey Was Difficult, With Mr Lai Having To Clear Many Misconceptions That I Had, On Top Of Completing The Syllabus On Time!”
In my Secondary 3 mid-terms examination, I didn’t fare very well for my Physics despite putting in a lot of effort into it. From then on, I decided that Physics just “wasn’t my subject” and disliked it.
My aunt recommended going to Mr Lai’s tuition and reluctantly, I signed up with Mr Lai for physics tuition. Mr Lai was able to evoke my interest and curiosity in the subject by linking it to the real-world. This allowed me to understand the physics concept better instead of merely being an abstract idea.
After getting me interested in the subject, he started to revise certain topics that I was weak in with me. The journey was difficult, with Mr Lai having to clear many misconceptions that I had, on top of completing the syllabus on time.
Under Mr Lai’s guidance and encouragement, I started to be confident in the subject and enjoying physics. I obtained an A1 in Physics during the recent O Levels Examination.
F9 To A1 Within 6 Months:
“Travelled Almost 2 Hours From Tampines To Bukit Batok, Just To Attend Mr Lai’s Class!”
Mr Lai! OMG! I am so grateful to you. I scored A1, and you know it only takes less than 6 months and that’s the only A1 I got. Your teaching is really awesome. I cannot express how gratitude I am towards you as you know I was F9 back few months.
You know I stay at Tampines and I think the effort to travel 1 hours plus to your centre at Bukit Batok was really fruitful. The questions you gave almost covers all the possibilities in the exam! I could absorb all the things you taught me in one 2-hour class, whereas I don’t really understand what my school teacher taught me even after 1 year and that’s why I kept failing.
The PhysicsProf was damn fun! It’s like playing games, without knowing that I was learning… haha! Again thank you Mr Lai for your dedication, care and concern throughout my O Level last year!
Hated Physics Before Joining Mr Lai’s Classes, But Jumped From U To A In 3 Months In JC1, Finally Scored A In Recent A Level (Attended Mastery I-Class):
“Constantly WhatsApp Him Questions & He Always Answered Quickly And Readily!”
Mr Lai is a dedicated and passionate teacher who has not only guided me to an A in just 3 months in J1 from a U, but has also allowed me to discover my passion for physics, which was the very subject I hated before joining his classes.
He has a large resource library that allowed us to have endless practices to hone our skills and his self recorded video lessons helped immediately in both catching up on missed chapters and refreshing our memory closer to the exams.
Although I constantly whatsapp him questions I wasn’t sure about or concepts I needed help with, he always answered quickly and readily. With the help of his patience, I managed to attain an A for my A’levels. Thank you Mr Lai, I am so lucky to have discovered Physics Academy amongst the many centers in SG!

Had Struggled With Physics, Managed To Get An A For My A Level:
“His Lessons Has Also Pique My Interest In Physics, Making It Enjoyable To Attend Lessons And Learn New Topics!”
In my first year of JC, I had initially struggled with physics, finding it difficult to understand concepts and answer questions. However, Mr Lai has taught me in a clear and concise manner, and it is undeniable that he is an experienced teacher.
Just after a few lessons, I had a better understanding of the subject and his lessons had also pique my interest in physics, making it enjoyable to attend lessons and learn new topics.
Aside from his explanations, Mr Lai had also provided a range of useful materials such as notes and questions which definitely helped me to prepare for my examinations. I found Mr Lai’s tuition to be very beneficial. Thanks to Mr Lai that I have managed to get an A for my A Level.
D7 To A2 In O Level:
“He Has A Way Of Teaching That Makes Anything Seem Easy, Even The Toughest Topics!”
I first started physics tuition when I was in Secondary 3. I remember struggling with physics a lot and scoring a D7/C6 in my mid-year examinations. Physics was a very dry and boring subject for me in the beginning.
However, very soon I started becoming more and more interested and curious about it, all thanks to Mr Lai. Mr Lai has a way of teaching that makes anything seem easy, even the toughest topics. Lessons with him are always fun and your doubts get cleared immediately.
I remember that I was very weak in my basic understanding and hence I couldn’t grasp the new concepts very well. I had almost lost hope and was even thinking about dropping physics.
However, with Mr Lai’s continuous guidance and help I was able to pull through and score an A2 in O Levels. His patience and persistence while teaching made me motivated to work hard and not give up.

My Physics Grades Slowly Improved And Eventually I Did Well:
“Provided Extensive Notes For Us To Understand The Concept Better!”
When I first started in JC, physics was a very intimidating subject to me as the lectures were fast paced and I could not understand the concepts well. I did poorly for exams in J1 and thus decided to join Mr Lai’s tuition.
Mr Lai was patient, encouraging and willing to answer any doubts, and provided extensive notes for us to understand the concepts better.
The video lessons and interactive style learning approach he took enhanced my understanding, and my physics grades slowly and eventually I did well!
My GPA Improved From 3.2 To 4.0:
“Another Thing I Like About The Tuition Class Is That Each Individual Student Gets Specialized Attention!”
Before I came to Mr Lai’s tuition, physics was one of the subjects I disliked the most and I was preparing to drop physics. This was simply because I blindly memorised concepts without actually knowing how to apply them. After coming for tuition, I was better able to appreciate Physics as a discipline in science.
I was also able to better appreciate the theories and concepts. Most importantly, I developed a genuine interest in Physics and I was excited to learn and explore more. This interest spurred me on to work harder and excel in school assessments. My GPA improved from 3.2 to 4.0!
Another thing I like about the tuition class is that each individual student gets specialized attention. Mr. Lai is ready and willing to go the extra mile to help every student to do their level best in assessments be it providing structured practices for students who have the potential to do better or challenging students who already have a good grasp of the topics.

U To B Grade In 9 Months (Attended Crash Course):
“With His ‘Challenging Physics Book’ And The Horrific TYS, My Results Improved Tremendously Within A Short Time!”
Many would say it is impossible to attain a B within a year in J2 if you have been constantly getting U grade, but I managed to do so with the help of Mr. Lai. He knew that I needed a lot more help than other students as I had Year 1 syllabus to catch up on.
But Mr. Lai had faith in me and constantly motivated and guided me throughout the journey. It was tough initially, but with his constant nagging to complete the ‘Challenging Physics Book’, his worked examples and the horrific TYS, my results improved tremendously within a short time.
Mr. Lai, being really experienced with how Cambridge marking scheme is, pointed out the KEY WORDS that are needed in our answers, exposed me to all sorts of questions, and taught me methods (A.K.A shortcuts) in solving complexed physics questions.
Mr. Lai made physics look easy, and he made me love practicing physics. Personally, attaining a B for H2 Physics is enough and it would not have happened without the help of Mr. Lai. Thank you Mr. Lai for the faith you had in me, I am very grateful that I did not let our effort and time go to waste!

E To B Grade In A Level:
“With Constant Practice And Hard Work, Like What Mr Lai Told Us, Everyone Can Rise From Ground To Something Great”
Ever since secondary school, physics has always been the bane of my existence. I just couldn’t grasp the content of it, not to mention answer the questions. However, ever since I came under Mr Lai’s guidance, physics was made clearer to me, and I could finally get what was going on even at the JC level.
Thanks to his teaching, I got a B for my promos (I used to fail terribly). People always says Physics is difficult and I agree with it, but with constant practice and hard work, like what Mr Lai always enforces upon us, everyone can rise from ground to zero to something great.
Mr Lai is certainly a remarkable teacher who not only teaches us physics, but life lessons as well.
His Methods Were Different From The Regular Teaching Methods In School:
“To Be Honest, He Actually Made Me Like Physics!”
I’ve been with Mr Lai for 4 years and he has helped me tremendously in my physics. When I was failing in class he had the patience to teach me from the basics. He always belief them at practice is the key to success.
His methods were different from the regular teaching methods in school. He uses technology to help us learn better. Example through the use of educational videos to pique our interest in the subject.
When there are questions which needed to be explain, he took the time and effort to compile videos of his explanation for us so that we are able to access it anywhere if we ever forget.
His notes are really detailed and easy to comprehend which is the key learning and understanding the subject. To be honest, he actually made me like physics. So thank you Mr Lai!

U To B Grade In 6 Months (Attended Crash Course):
“He Also Gave Some Interesting Analogies To Make Us Understand And Remember Better!”
I was planning to just take up the crash courses in June for the physics topics I was weaker in a few months before A levels, but I ended up joining Mr. Lai’s weekly tuition classes after constant nagging from my best friend.
Mr. Lai is a very thoughtful teacher and his lessons are very helpful. I was extremely weak in Physics and thus sometimes I asked very basic questions that every J2 Physics student should have known. Mr. Lai was patient and he taught me step-by-step, ensuring that I understood.
He was also willing to stay back and teach after the allocated 2 hours of tuition. He will answer any question being raised because he was determined to make every student understand important concepts. He kept repeating the same crucial key words and concepts that we could recite them every time he re-emphasized. He also gave interesting analogies to make us understand and remember better.
On top of these, when A levels were drawing closer, he made us go for tuition one hour earlier every week so that we can attempt papers from different schools, strengthening our concepts. He printed notes after notes, practices after practices. His notes are so much more detailed and precise than what I got from school.
