The Physics Cafe stands out greatly from school lessons and even after tuition centers thanks to a few reasons. Firstly, the notes provided are specifically designed so that students must take an active role in listening to the lecturer to make them complete. In this way, students are motivated to really absorb everything the lecturer is saying and also remembers the lesson’s content better due to writing it down. Secondly, the lecturer himself Mr Dave Sim is highly capable of engaging and retaining students’ attention by consistently asking questions and looking at the topic from the students’ perspective. Finally, there are many timed tests scattered throughout lessons for all chapters, and this serves to maximize students’ efficiency at solving questions – by training them to think quickly and concisely while still paying attention to all the details in the question. Together, these three facets of the lessons enable learning to be more effective and more efficient than with lessons in school.
