Many students find physics difficult because of its unique meld of concepts, formulas, mathematical calculations and graphs. Physics tests a student’s understanding by requiring them to make use of a variety of formulas that can be combined, rearranged and manipulated to solve problems.
Just knowing the formulas is not enough. To excel at physics, students need a firm grasp of the underlying concepts and develop intuition that enables them to identify the right formulas and how said formulas relate to the problem.
Here’s how Physics Academy helps our students achieve mastery:
PERSONALISED LEARNING PLAN AND REPORTS
Just like the subject itself, there is no one-size fits all approach when it comes to learning physics. At Physics Academy, every student gets a comprehensive plan tailored to their strengths and weaknesses.
It all starts with a diagnostic assessment — which identifies which concepts students are strong or weak in. After which, a personalised learning roadmap is drafted for each student, which details which lessons and worksheets to focus on.
Throughout the learning journey each student will complete topical tests to ensure they are hitting checkpoints on their roadmap as well as address any lapses.
Tutors monitor a student’s progress throughout the term and at the end of every month — each student receives a personalised monthly progress report that ensures they are consistently improving. Together with this monthly progress report, tutors also sit down with the student for a 1-to-1 review to address any problems and challenges the student might be facing.
Physics Academy centers around deep-concept lessons conducted at our branches. However, students do not have to limit their learning to their time at the tuition centre. Students who sign up for the premium plan get access to a range of learning supplements they’ll be able to access anytime and anywhere.
Digital lessons aid students in their learning and comprehension of physics concepts and is useful for students who may have missed the live lessons at the centre.
Each digital lesson includes thorough, easy-to-understand explanations of concepts. They also include tricky questions with step-by-step walkthroughs on applying the right theories and formulas to solve them.
The true value of digital lessons lie in the ability for students to pause and revise the concepts at their own pace.
Students who sign up for Physics Academy’s premium plan also receive a handy Physics compendium — a compilation of structured questions and answers to help students secure high scores in Paper 2 and Paper 3 explanation-based questions. Inside, students will find precise and accurate keywords to tackle popular exam questions, worth up to 10-30 marks of questions in every A level examination.
Besides the compendium, students also receive a handy formula card and concept list — an excellent cheat sheet with everything in one place to simplify revision.
Besides the usual tuition classes, Physics Academy also offers crash courses, revision programmes and catch-up classes for students who need a little boost of confidence during stressful periods.
