In PMC, we have our very own Mao Shan Wang (MSW) – Mr MSW! Just like the MSW durian, Mr MSW’s Sec Physics lessons have a very strong character of their own, yet delightful if you enjoy it. His questioning techniques “trick” and dazzle students in a way that challenges their concepts and understanding. With a dash of lame jokes and never-ending barrage of “tricky” questions, students will never zone out in his lessons.
A regular tutor sounds kinda meh to you? Former principal will definitely impress you!
Well, we’ve everything you want and need, including Mr M who was a Principal for 5 years at a secondary school. Don’t let the title or his demeanour scare you. Mr M’s actually a pretty cool tutor, you’ll find yourself being totally absorbed in his lessons. Being taught Physics tuition by an ex principal is really something else.
Good things come in pairs. Ms JT can teach both Physics and Math, and her methods are as elegant as she is! If you think the mentioned subjects are boring and difficult, Ms JT will prove you otherwise. She’s crystal clear with explaining and will make sure you’re not lost at any point of her lessons. She’s been with PMC since it was founded (not to make her sound THAT old…) so she has helped to lay some fundamental foundation here!
Some people can remember what they HEAR. Some can remember what they SEE. So you must know what’s your strength. Maybe you learn better by READING? Maybe you always forget what you read, but never forget what you SAY. Some always remember what they WRITE.
For me, I always remember what I say…that’s i say what loud what I want to understand and remember. In any case if i forget what i SAY, at least I can remember what what I hear.
So find you what is your strongest sense today 🙂
The Physics Cafe is specialized in IP physics tuition and O Level Sec physics tuition since 2010. In 2016, The Physics Cafe expanded and is renamed PMC.SG Education Group. At PMC, we are one of the only learning centres that would offer lower secondary Science classes. This is to provide them with the opportunity to master the foundation of Physics, and have a critical appreciation of the concepts in the subject. The skills taught in the early years will also prove to be essential for them when they advance to upper Secondary where all students need to master advanced answering skills / techniques!
The PMC Express programme is a tuition course that will support the student to succeed in the O-Level Physics exam. The secondary Physics tuition programme is exam focused, and specially designed to help students cope with the high demands of the Secondary 1-4 Express Curriculum based on the revised O-Level syllabus, so as to assist them in getting into the desired Junior Colleges, or Polytechnic programme of their dreams. At the point of writing, PMC is the most popular IP physics tuition centre in Singapore. 1 out of every 2 student is from an IP school.
We don’t want to point out the obvious but we are very proud of our students who have done well in the O levels and would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the graduated batches over the years since 2009. You have worked hard and gotten the grades you truly deserved. Besides the students taking O Levels, most of the IP students taking Sec physics tuition are also in The Physics Cafe. The Physics Cafe is the most established and well-known IP Physics tuition centre in Singapore since 2010.
We have other programmes such as 1-to-1 gold class private lessons as well as digital membership. The PMC experience is designed in a way where 80% of the content trains the problem-solving skillset of the students and only 20% on the concepts. Thus you can still learn as effectively with our resources at your own timing and pace.
Our outlets aren’t simply just for holding lessons. PMC students are welcomed to visit our centres anytime during our opening hours to study rather than having to fight for limited seats at libraries and cafes. Aside from the classes, we’ve allocated studying areas, complimentary snacks and drinks for students to munch on in between revision.
Our Physics tutors undergo months of training before they can lead classes, so you can be assured that our tutors are top-notch and top-quality. We teach ahead of the school, and before your exam, we will revise the topics with you so that you will score well. Occasionally, tutors will also issue surprise pop quiz to students during their Physics tuition. The live lessons are unlike any other lessons you attend. It will be dynamic, engaging with demonstrations and at the same time, exam oriented.
In this lesson, our Physics tutor goes through the topic on Sound which is a longitudinal wave. He also touched on important points to note about Sound, for instance the loudness and pitch is dependent on amplitude and frequency respectively.
MYE Revision (Mock Paper)
For MYE revisions, our tutor goes through Secondary 3 topics like force and pressure in the form of a mock MYE paper. The tutor identifies the topic and concept before going through the questions so that students are aware of which formulas to apply.
In this lesson, the Secondary Physics tutor teaches our students how to use the four kinematics equations to solve questions and that there are only five variables in kinematics. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to know which equation to use based on which variable is missing.
Our tutor touch on the revision for Kinematics and goes through many questions from the structured paper. Kinematics is presumably one of the more complex topics in Secondary 3 so it’s important that we have a quick crash course on this!
Work, Energy, Power
In this lesson, our tutor touches on Work, Energy & Power (WEP) – focusing on two types of energy (Kinetic Energy & Gravitational Potential Energy). The class was also taught how to apply the principle of Conservation of Energy and devised a useful template to solve any question on this topic.
For Magnestism, our sec Physics tutor goes through how to draw magnetic fields, determine the direction and strength. Furthermore, our students learn the difference between hard and soft magnetic materials and their applications.
