Our Dedicated and Experienced Team of Physics Tutors:

Mr. Andrew Yap

Mr. Andrew Yap graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Master degree in Science (Mathematics) under the Accelerated Master Programme (AMP) and a minor in Physics. He scored distinctions in all modules required for a minor in Physics.

Upon graduation, Mr Yap pursued the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education under the National Institute of Education, where he was trained to teach Mathematics at Secondary and JC level and also Physics at secondary school level

As a curriculum planner, Mr Yap is systematic in the way he crafts the Physics notes according to the MOE syllabus. He is able to build a strong foundation in the learning of Physics which will provide students with the capacity to cope with the highly demanding pure Physics syllabus at secondary level, be it main stream or IP stream.  He is always clear in his explanations and his effective teaching pedagogy allows him to break down tough concepts into simpler components so that it is easy for students to digest and learn with ease.

Mr. Yeo

Mr Yeo is a Physics teacher in secondary schools with 25 years of experience.

He graduated from National University Of Singapore with a Bachelor of Science, with a major in Physics and a minor in English, under the sponsorship of Singapore Public Service Commission Scholarship (Teaching). Mr Yeo continued to pursue the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education under the National Institute of Education, where he was trained to teach Physics and English at secondary level.

Later in his career as an educator, Wee Chong was appointed Head of Science Department, and went on to  pursue the Master of Education at the National Institute Of Education.

As a classroom teacher, Mr Yeo carries out concept based teaching using clear and concise MOI (Methods of Instructions) so that students are able to apply their understanding to meet the demands of the O Level Examination. He teaches kinesthetic, tactile, audio and visual learning strategies to speed up and improve retention of student understanding; such skills can be applied across all subject and levels.

The most recent Gallup CliftonStrengths analysis in December 2017 showed Mr Yeo to have the following Top Three Themes in order of strengths: Empathy, Developer and Relator. As such, he has a natural devotion to help others develop to their fullest potential, especially in the academic and intellectual areas.

Mr Lawrence Remedios 

Mr Lawrence Remedios graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Honours degree in Science (Physics).  Upon graduation, he pursued the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education under the National Institute of Education.

Mr. Lawrence Remedios then went on to teach at Hwa Chong Institution (JC Section) for 11 years and Meridian Junior College for 2 years. He was also well-versed in the International Baccalaureate Physics Programme where he taught for 3 years in the Singapore Sports School. With his many years of teaching experience, Mr. Lawrence Remedios will be most qualified to guide and add values to your learning in the study of Physics.

Mr Arthur Gow

Mr Arthur Gow graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Honours degree in Science (Physics and Computational Science).  Upon graduation, he pursued the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education under the National Institute of Education. Mr. Gow has taught H2 Physics and H3 Physics while lecturing at Hwa Chong Institution (JC Section) for 11 years.
