Reviews from Past Students

Mr Kong breaks down harder concepts into smaller parts that are easier to understand. This helped me to improve my physics from a C6 in SA1 to an A1 in my prelims.
— Kieran Lee, Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School
Mr Kong is a patient and dedicated teacher whom students find approachable when in doubt. When needed to clarify certain concepts, Mr Kong would be patient in his approach and use different methods of explanation to allow you to understand. He would try his best to engage the lessons with demonstrations to allow his students to better understand. He would also occasionally crack jokes to spice up the lesson while learning takes place simultaneously. With these attributes, lessons would be more interesting while Mr Kong helps students to excel in Physics.
— Derek Kiang, Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School
Mr Kong is a very thoughtful teacher who would always seek to improve himself and his lessons. He plans his lessons to suit the needs of his students and always makes sure tht his students understand the concepts before applying them (unlike many other teachers such as my school’s physics teacher). I would say that Mr Kong is one of my favourite teachers out there. Overall, coming to this tuition centre is really worth it and this is also evident in my grades (D7 to A2!).
— Seah Jia Yi Megan, Anglican High School
Mr Kong ensures we are able to internalise the general concepts before teaching us how to apply them in basic questions and from there, we progress to the more challenging ones. I like that he is patient and he makes sure we go through this routine for every topic, which makes us well-versed in the subject.
— Dionne, Anglican High School
I always had much difficulty and found Physics a cumbersome and boring subject. But after attending his physics tuition class, I slowly understood it, and finally got an A1 at the end! One thing I really appreciate about Calvin is the fact that he cared for us all as individuals. When I was unsure about other subjects like A. Math, he will stay back after class with me to clear my doubts. And for that, I’m really thankful!
— Liew Yee Kay, Anglican High School
I realised that he always has several ways to explain the same physics concepts such that when one don’t work, he can switch and explain in other ways until we understood. Ultimately, he is quick to understand our individual learning style and he can precisely explain his lessons in the way that we can understand best.
Chua Jia Minn, Anglican High School
I believe Mr Kong is a truly one-of-a-kind teacher. He is always very approachable, and always takes the time to help students fully understand the lesson. Before I came to his class, Physics was probably my worst subject and I was always struggling at school. However, over the course of a few months, under Mr Kong’s tutelage, I was able to strengthen my foundation and improve my confidence in the subject. In only a year, my grade for Physics by 4 grades, from a D7 in Secondary 3 to a B3 in the beginning of Secondary 4. I can’t thank Mr Kong enough for guiding me through, and I am always very happy to learn from him.
Clarence Tan, Anglo Chinese School (Barker Road)
Calvin Kong has given me the encouragement and confidence required to do the paper. He is able to pinpoint the weak areas, and does his upmost best to help us improve and do well. Without his help, I can confidently say that my physics would not have been ready for O Levels. His enthusiasm and lame puns always puts a smile on the students faces, making class enjoyable and conducive.
Hiero Ong, Anglo Chinese School (Barker)
Though being in this tuition centre for a mere 7 months before my O Levels, Mr Calvin Kong has helped me improve in my Physics tremendously through his fun, interactive lessons.
Marcus Chan Kai Jun, Anglo Chinese School (Barker Road)
Through Mr Calvin Kong’s lessons, I have learnt to adopt a systematic approach towards problem solving. He is able to make Physics so much simpler and easier that I longer think of it as “impossible”. He had definitely contributed to my positive approach to learning the subject.
Jerel Wong, Anglo Chinese School (Barker Road)
Coming in for my first lesson, I was originally nervous and skeptical about how effective the lesson was going to be. After one lesson, I was able to fully understand what was taught. Which was surprising. I originally heard about this tuition when a friend of mine had gone from a D7 to a B3. Although I’ve only spent five months at this center, I have really been able to understand all the concepts and also reinforce them with the countless practices. Thank you!
Muhaimin, Anglo Chinese School (Independent)
I have really enjoyed the lessons. The teaching style and notes have really helped me to improve my understanding of the subject. The weekly exercises have really helped me deepen my understanding of the subject and knowledge with the constant tests and practices. I have especially found the summary notes to be the most helpful outside of class, whenever I am in doubt while doing a worksheet or in school, where I do not understand my teacher, I would use the summary notes to clarify doubts. Mr Kong always spares time for his students and will ensure that each one of us will be as prepared for any exams. Thank you for teaching me!
Dylan Chan, Anglo Chinese School (Independent)
The tuition has helped me understand what is happening in class during school and the two page summaries are very useful as it is a good and easy way to revise. The exercises help me get to know the types of questions and how to answer it. I can always clarify my doubts anytime. Lessons are very fun due to the videos and experiments during break.
Annamalai, Anglo Chinese School (Independent)
Mr Kong has helped me in by content understanding tremendously and always stays back to answer my queries and clarify my doubts. He also provides us with quality revision materials to help us have tons of revision time. I am really grateful that I found him and I hope to be under his tutelage again in my JC journey.
Adam Irfan, Anglo Chinese School (Independent)
When I started on Mr Kong’s tuition classes, it came with no high expectations as it was only a few months to my end-of-year exams. However, he had helped me cleared so many doubts within this short period of time, leading to great improvements. Whenever I had questions, I would look to Mr Kong and he will never fail to explain the concepts to me in different ways to ensure that I understood and be able to solve the questions. He makes classes fun and enjoyable through his jokes, keeping everyone engaged. I am super grateful for such an amazing teacher who not only helped me improve in grades but also to enjoy the subject much more. Thank you Mr Kong.
Douglas Tang, Anglo Chinese School (Independent)
Mr Kong is an extremely dedicated and patient teacher who never fails to lend a helping hand when needed. His explanations are clear and understandable. With the help of certain tools that allow students to visualise their learning more efficiently. The materials given are extremely useful and easy to use as reference.
Gabriel Kiew, Anglo Chinese School (Independent)
Mr Kong is a very helpful tutor whom with great patience, helped me grasp the foundations of each topic better. During practice in class, he is able to quickly point out my mistakes and give quick, short and clear explanations on the spot. This allows me to correct my misconceptions on site, making class very efficient.
Ng Yong Ning, Bedok South Secondary School
His lessons are well-paced and he regularly check on his students’ understanding. He gives enough time for us to think through, thus allowing every student to understand fully before continuing. He ensures that his students’ foundation is strong before making them trying the worksheets at different levels.
Ng Yong Tai, Bedok South Secondary School
Mr Calvin Kong was introduced to me by a friend and he has been the best physics tutor that I’ve had. Fluent with physics concepts and extremely patient, he always tries his best to cater to my pace of learning. I would recommend his physics tuition class to anyone struggling with the subject!
Joshua Tan, Bedok South Secondary School
He paces his lessons well and together with his clear explanation, it becomes easy for students like myself who finds physics challenging, to understand and grasp the difficult physics concepts. Being constantly concerned with our well-being, he is always reaching out to us students and attending to our questions.
James Teo, Bedok View Secondary School
Taking the pure Physics class as a Science Physics students helped greatly as one can tackle higher difficulty questions for the same topic which gives me greater experience.
Henry Chia, Bowen Secondary School
The class was really useful as a lot of detailed notes and concept orientated practices were given to practice. Near O’ levels, summarised notes with key concepts, definitions and formulas were given which I found most useful. Mr Kong has been a wonderful teacher too as he taught and guided us in a unique way. I would highly recommend joining this tuition centre as it has helped improved my grades from a C6 to a B3 so very good!
Harni, Bukit Batok Secondary School
Ever since I attended Mr Kong’s Physics tuition, my Physics improved tremendously. He makes the lessons fun and interesting, allowing me to be more interested in the subject and put more effort into it. Mr Kong’s passion in researching and creating better learning material for his students is unrivaled, and that has encouraged me to also put in more effort and do well in Physics. Because of him I was able to jump 3 grades up. Thank you Mr Kong!
Jennifer Grace, Bukit Batok Secondary School
I became more confident in Physics and I really start to enjoy Physics lesson because of Mr Kong. For me the results I got in Secondary 4 when I joined his lesson were actually more decent compared to my peers.
Andrea Toh, Bukit Batok Secondary School
I have learnt a lot from the class. I did not understand any Physics chapters and was suffering until I joined the class. After a few lessons, I became better in Physics as I could understand well. I became confident in Physics because of this class. He makes students understand concepts and chapters very well by illustrating things in real life and also by the visualiser. Also, the class was never boring which helped me stay awake and be focused all the time. It is a great class.
Kim Jong Hoon, Bukit Batok Secondary School
Mr Kong’s lessons were very helpful in boosting my confidence when it came to tackling questions. Looking at questions now, I am better able to structure and plan my answers. He also provided helpful insights to what examiners are looking out for in our answers. The notes and lessons were enriching and well-planned.
Sunanda, Bukit Batok Secondary School
Concept First is probably the best tuition centre I’ve been to. The teacher, Mr Kong, is very dedicated to his job and puts in so much effort to teach and prepare materials that are easy to understand. The amount of effort he puts in really reflects on the materials provided. His work ethic is really commendable and I am glad to have found this tuition centre. Mr Kong is a hardworking and friendly teacher and I would definitely recommend enrolling in this tuition centre.
Ong Zi Heng, Bukit Panjang Government High School
I liked the lesson structure, although I only joined for a year, I managed to catch up on my physics. The lessons were fun, and I could learn the basics of Physics through the revision classes. I could understand physics concepts that were complicated, and it helped improve my physics grades. Additionally, the notes provided are very good, there was the page summaries that helped me consolidate my learning.
Iman Thahirah, Bukit Panjang Government High School
Concept first is a tuition that makes sure that you are good at the concepts for every topical lesson by learning and understanding how those concepts work by listening to Mr Kong’s explanations and practice questions provided. He also does some small experiments or visualisations to break down hard concepts to improve our understanding. I feel that concepts are important to do well so they have done well to make that possible. I can also ask questions to clarify our doubts, so I am able to excel well, so having them in supporting my education is absolutely comforting.

Chan Yi Long, Bukit View Secondary School

After suffering from several setbacks in Sec 3, I was demoralised by my Physics results as I either kept failing or getting borderline passes. However, after chancing upon his website on the internet when I was searching for references to do my school physics homework, I decided to take classes in Mr Kong’s Centre as it seemed good and beneficial for me. I was not wrong. Mr Kong’s 2-page summary and consolidation notes in a booklet was what I like most as it proved to be useful for revision when I was studying for the exams. In addition, his clear explanations and demonstration using things around us made me understand the topics better and cleared many of my misconceptions. Students can be assured of the quality teaching in Mr Kong’s class and benefit from it just as I had.
Melvin Kher, Catholic High School
Mr Kong is a very dedicated teacher who always planned the lessons well beforehand. He is very patient in guiding the students along, ensuring that all of us can understand the concepts being taught. After attending Mr Kong’s lesson for a year, my physics results improved tremendously. Strongly recommended!
Yu Zifan, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School
The lessons are fun and engaging and the teacher always makes sure to give us a short break either by telling us jokes or short stories, and I like that because it helps me to focus and absorb more information when the lesson resumes. The concepts taught by him were easy to understand as he often compares them to real-life examples. I must thank him for making Physics so much more bearable and interesting.
Melissa Ang, Cedar Girls’ Secondary School
The classes are very enriching and mr kong will be more than happy to stay back after classes to emsure you understand the material and you are able to master the concepts. He will also go through past school papers with you to identify your mistakes in your learning. Moreover, his classes are priced reasonably for the amount of material he has given.

Aishwarya Elango, Chua Chu Kang Secondary School

Mr Kong is one who finds innovative ways to explain complex Physics concepts to his students to make it easy to understand and relate to. He does his best to constantly improve his materials such as his summary notes which is extremely beneficial. He is patient even when students ask him many questions and ask him to re-explain certain concepts they are still unsure about. Through his lessons, it does not only make Physics easier to comprehend, but more interesting as well.
