H3 Physics Tuition - Essentials of Modern Physics (Syllabus 9811)
Tel: 62756800

Mr. Phang's H3 lessons are offered free-of-charge to his existing and past students to give them an extremely powerful edge over their peers, not just in H3 but also H2 and secondary school (strange?), as explained below.

The H3 class is open not just to his students taking MOE H3 (9811) but students of any age who feel they could handle first-year university undergraduate science or engineering physics (equivalent to H3).

Mr. Phang's H3 class thus comprised H3 students as well as others who wished to learn beyond their syllabus, particularly the H3 topics photonics, matter waves and quantum mechanics, which have a substantial overlap with the Grand Finale H2 topics waves, superposition and quantum physics.

Mr. Phang's H3 students' age thus ranges from 12 to 18 (probably the most unique class in Singapore) comprising:

1. H3 students taking MOE H3 physics (9811), NUS/ NTU H3 physics and/or H3 maths.

2. H2 students from top junior colleges who want to better handle their schools' more challenging questions on the H2 topics waves, superposition and quantum physics.

3. Sec 1 to JC1 students who want to learn far far far far far far ahead of their school syllabus.

Other than in the top junior colleges, perhaps the only other place in Singapore where students congregate for H3 physics lessons is Mr. Phang's tuition centre (just Google "H3 Physics Tuition").

Surely Mr. Phang cannot be the only H3 physics tutor in Singapore. But whether tutors who teach H3 have the critical mass of elite students wanting to learn from them, that is another matter altogether.

Mr. Phang is greatly honoured to be the preferred brand for students whose secrets are in their genes.

Testimonials from some H3 Physics Students (since 2007 when H3 began)

“Thanks so much for your inspiration! I am now on track to becoming an MOE teaching scholar, having been awarded their Education Merit Scholarship, and I look forward to applying the techniques that you taught me, and your love for your subject, to my own future students.”

“The most striking feature of Mr. Phang's lessons is his idiosyncratic and lively teaching style, where he fuses humour seamlessly and effortlessly with complex physics concepts and explanations ... these classes were paramount in enabling me to achieve my distinction for the H3 'A' Level paper.”

“Surely, there is no better place to learn physics than in Mr. Phang's class, where questions are challenging and his explanations of them even more enlightening ...”

“Mr. Phang is very funny and demonstrates physics in everyday analogies ...”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from his lessons, ...”

“so understandable everyone can understand and connect with it. Everyone.”

“Mr Phang has done what many teachers and textbooks cannot do: he has brought colour into physics and made it very interesting!”

“The lesson was so interesting, I decided to join his physics class in Sec 2. It turned out to be the best choice in my life! (so far).”

“... by making even quantum physics crystal clear with his epic analogies and humour”

“... analytical thought and reasoning are inculcated through your continually entertaining lessons!”

“He uses truly interesting analogies to liven up the class atmosphere and make Physics look easy and fun to learn.”

“Will always remember your entertaining and effective lessons!”

“His teaching style is one of a kind, humourous yet strict when it comes to ensuring students comprehension of physics ...”

“A good portion of Mr. Phang's lessons are dedicated to guiding students on how to tackle the dreaded open-ended questions, giving his students a significant edge.”

“I only managed to get a Distinction for my H3 Essentials of Modern Physics A levels thanks to your innovative teaching methods! Your class was definitely a fun, engaging and challenging one.”

“... in early Sec 4 I was failing every single Physics test ... eventually I was even selected to do Physics at the H3 level and was part of a team of 25 students representing my school for the 2010 Singapore Physics Olympiad.”

“You have managed to turn a traditionally dry school subject into an entertaining and interactive adventure every lesson.”

“Thank you Mr. Phang for helping me achieve my A in H2 Physics and a Distinction in H3 Physics.”

“From nearly failing physics in sec 3 and having no interest in the subject at all, I came to understand physics so much better through Mr. Phang's help and to my own surprise, even took up H3 Physics!”

“Thank you for being such an entertaining and fun physics teacher! The analogies you use in class are really very memorable ...”

“Mr Phang has always been able to simplify concepts to enable his students to understand them better and at the same time, make them laugh.”

“... surrounded by top school students, I am probably one of your more unique students having skipped Sec 4 and JC2 classes to jump straight into H3 and was even given the chance to be the sole representative for my school in the SJPO!”

“Before I joined Mr. Phang's class, I could do well for physics but have little interest ...”

“Even though I was two years younger, your lessons were very clear and easy to follow. The analogies and examples you used made things understandable ...”

“His H3 lessons are like his H2 lessons and special IB lessons, entertaining and fun.”

“I had the best of both worlds - quality teaching for both the IB and A-level H2 and H3 programmes.”

“Mr. Phang's unique way of teaching, approachable personality and effective learning techniques made Physics more interesting to me ... pushed me to take up H3 physics.”

“Mr. Phang is a very humourous teacher, starting from waist exercises (when doing gravitational field) to Phang-nam style (when teaching electromagnetic induction). All these analogies made the lessons funny and helped me to memorise difficult physics concepts.”

"Mr. Phang, just received SJPO results, TianYao got Gold, too delighted, initially thought there was no chance as the second special round had lots of writing questions. After learning from you for 2 years, TianYao's interest in physics is becoming more and more intense."

“I applaud his method of teaching physics concepts which is through simple (and sometimes amusing) analogies such that any student can easily visualise.”

“It is impossible to get drowsy in his class, even for those lessons that lasted till midnight* as his lessons were always filled with humorous examples and analogies.” * The H3 physics class from 9:30 pm to midnight, despite its late timing, also has the most energetic students.
