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.
The tutors break 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.

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.
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.
Liew Yee Kay
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!
Seah Jia Yi Megan
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!).
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.
Mrs Magdalene Tan, parent of Clarence Tan
Mr Calvin Kong is a tutor that I will strongly recommend to anymore. He is a true educator who shows passion for the subject and his students. His pedagogy was strong and with his constant encouragement, he was able to build the confidence and foundation of his students. I am thankful to have Mr Kong tutoring and guiding my child through the 1.5 years!
Calvin Kong has given me the encouragement and confidence re quired 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.
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.
Marcus Chan Kai Jun
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.
The team of tutors have helped me in my content understanding tremendously and always stay back to answer my queries and clarify my doubts. They also provide us with quality revision materials to help us have tons of revision time. I am really grateful that I found them and I hope to be under their tutelage again in my JC journey.
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.
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.
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. The tutors always spare time for the students and will ensure that each one of us will be as prepared for any exams. Thank you for teaching me!
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.
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!
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!

This allows me to correct my misconceptions on site, making class very efficient.
Ng Yong Tai
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Concept First tuition centre as it has helped improved my grades from a C6 to a B3 so very good!
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 searching and creating material for his students is unrivalled, and 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!
Kim Jong Hoon
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.
Tan Wee Yu
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.
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.
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 Concept First. Mr Kong is a hardworking and friendly teacher and I would definitely recommend enrolling in this tuition centre.
Chan Yi Hong
Concept First is a tuition centrethat makes sure that you are good at the concepts for every topical lesson by learning and understanding how those concepts work by listening to their explanations and practice questions provided. Mr Kong, especially, 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.
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.
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.
The notes that he created is very well organised with the content, examples and practice questions flowing seamlessly. This helped me attain concepts effectively within a short time. His worksheets are arranged at different levels (easy, medium, difficult) and amazingly categorised into question types. This is extremely helpful as it gets me mentally ready for the o-levels.
His lessons are very engaging and interesting, and he really takes the time to help each and every student. I never expected to enjoy learning physics, until I joined his class. His methods of teaching is excellent and his notes contain adequate information. Learning from him has been a very pleasant and beneficial experience.

Having lots of students, he would also reply to our queries quickly out of lesson time.
S. Darshan Nair
Concept First helped me understand the concepts behind physics instead of plainly memorising them. The summary and other materials like compilation of generally asked questions were really useful. I have also seen my grades improve from C5 in MYE to A2 in prelims. I am also able to handle the questions more confidently due to the exposure to a large number of questions of different difficulty
Mr Calvin Kong’s Tuition Classes are unlike the classes offered by tuition centres. His classes are engaging and the hands on activities aids my understanding of the concepts. Mr Kong is an effective tutor and his explanations have helped me build a strong foundation. I have enjoyed his lessons and would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to get a distinction for Physics!
Enrolling in class has been tremendously effective improving my physics grade. From being a borderline student, physics has grown to be my favourite subject over 1 year of lessons at Concept First.The tutors teach in a way that makes it engaging and easier for students to learn. They are also very patient when it comes to answering questions even outside of lesson time and on Whatsapp. Particularly, I really appreciate Mr Kong for he is a truly dedicated teacher in helping his students achieve their very best.
I went to different tuition centres for other subjects. For most of the places, they just went through the basics that they have planned but do not actually cater to each individual’s needs. Your classes are different because of the small class size and and all the students were catered to. I will miss your enthusiastic lessons. Thank you for making learning this fun and enjoyable.
Mr Kong is a perfectionist whose commitment to ensure effective teaching and learning is reflected by the enthusiasm of his students. Outside the classroom, he has a great personality – patient, fun and never boring. In secondary 3, my Physics was lagging behind and my foundation was not strong but with Mr Kong’s help, I managed to pick up and improved from a fail grade to a B3 for the Os. Thank you!
I was a student who scored C6 at the start of Secondary 3. However, now I managed to score A2 for prelims. I feel that his teaching has really helped me to understand how to apply the concepts I have learnt.
He genuinely wants to help us in any way that he can and would often stay back after class to answer our many more questions, not only in Physics but also in Chemistry, E and A Mathematics. With him as our Tutor, we never have to worry about not getting help and guidance!
Before I joined this tuition, I really hated Physics and was always confused during lessons in class. Physics concepts were hard for me to comprehend and there were insufficient practices provided by the school. Mr Kong’s lessons are always very engaging and easy for everyone to follow. Unlike school lessons which are fast-paced, I feel encouraged to clarify my doubts. Mr Kong uses different resources that allow us to visualise Physics concepts better which deepens my understanding of each chapter. For more challenging topics, Mr Kong uses different approaches like videos , real life demonstrations and computer simulations, to allow us to understand every topic instead of just plain memorising, and this really enhances my learning. Mr Kong also provides consolidated notes, timed practices, 1 to 1 consultations via Whatsapp, a notebook for us to consolidate important concepts, which has helped me a lot in my preparation for major school examinations.

Also without fail, he is always willing to stay back after lessons to patiently clarify our doubts and ensure that we fully understand the questions that we had problem tackling. Thank you, Mr Kong!
The two page summaries are a great help for concise and efficient revision. The summaries help by picking out the key point one needs to study for, and it saves me a lot of time as I don’t have to think about the important and key points when I am studying for the exam. The coloured notes are also useful for last minute revision as they are concise and neatly arranged. Thank you for helping me so much for helping me turn my most dreaded subject into one I find interesting!
Mr Kong is a very systematic teacher. His two page summaries and notes have proven to be beneficial to me as I am able to understand the subject much better, I appreciate his effort put in to make his physics classes as beneficial and fun as possible. It was a joy to be under his wing.
The tutors have been very helpful for the past year. Their lessons are engaging, notes are easy to understand and they are able to explain and break down very complicated concepts using everyday examples or simplified concepts. During lessons, Mr Kong particularly, is able to keep the class engaged and also answer personal questions of individual students. Mr Kong monitors progress of each student and gives advice on how to tackle different problems. Mr Kong is able to provide a very conducive learning environment. Mr Kong is very patient with his students and put in a lot of effort into his notes and worksheets.
I definitely benefited greatly from Concept First’s lessons. In Sec 3, I despised Physics and had a lot of difficulty in understanding the concepts. My initial attitude towards Physics was very negative and although my grades were fairly decent for someone that puts in little effort in the subject, it wasn’t a good standpoint. When i joined Concept First, I was convinced i wouldn’t advantage from it as I considered Physics a pointless subject. However, on the very first lesson, I actually had a lot of intake and understand almost the whole chapter being taught. Mr Kong’s interactive method of teaching brought a new perspective and understanding that my teachers always failed to convey to me. If it weren’t for Mr Kong, I wouldn’t have improved this much in Physics or started to take a liking to the subject. Never would I have imagined I would decide to pursue Physics in junior college! Mr Kong’s teaching methods and tips of memorisation have really been put to good use in helping me understand the concepts more, not forgetting the helpful notes that he compiles for the class. I’m sure Mr Kong has inspired many students like myself to better appreciate and understand Physics.
Jin Hong Jun
Lessons in Concept First Tuition Center are very informative, with great analogies for students to better grasp the topics that are rather complicated. Mr Calvin Kong especially is always willing to stay back after class to give students who need clarification in the lesson being taught on the day clarity and is usually very thorough in explaining. Mr Kong is also very friendly towards his students and may crack jokes to make lessons more enjoyable and less dull.
I personally liked the material such as the summary as I feel that it is complete and clear. Concept First Tuition Center also allows students to study at the tuition center during examination periods.
Mr Kong’s lessons are one of the most interesting lessons that I look forward to attend. He helped me with enquires I have with Physics. I have become more confident in my concepts and answering techniques ever since I joined the tuition classes. He does check on our understanding by making sure everyone is alright with the things he goes through before proceeding I’ll definitely recommend him to my juniors.

The tutors are very patient and take the time and effort to explain things, going the extra mile to stay back after lessons to answer questions
The two page summaries and the formula sheet provide an easier easier way to understand the topics and allow me to be able to revise easily.
Mr Calvin Kong truly has a talent for teaching. Topics that completely baffled me in school are made so simple by Mr Kong. His classes have turned the bane of my existence into my very favourite subject. Mr Kong helps me to maximise my effort and time. He gives out a consolidation book in which I am guided in making notes, as well as a convenient cheat sheet to keep on hand. A diligent student is one thing, but a good teacher is needed to direct and guide that effort, or else the student might wind up barking up the wrong tree. Mr Kong has been that teacher for me in Physics and I am very grateful.
Before I found out about Concept First physics class, I could not understand many topics and struggled with passing this subject. Because of taking classes here, my analysis skills and fundamental knowledge has improved greatly. Thanks to Mr Kong, I was able to pull my grades up and score better for MCQ. No matter how many questions I had after class, Mr Kong was always willing to help with his great forbearance.
I had a very good time at Concept First tuition centre. It has improved my physics tremendously. I also learnt to apply my physics in the real world, enabling me to understand certain concepts, more accurately preventing me from making false or inaccurate assumptions. This has moulded me into a better student. I also like the conceptual summary notes and the 4 page description notes! They are really helpful for preparation and revision on the last day before O levels.
Concept first physics tuition has really helped me to overcome my fear of physics. The materials provided has helped me alot along the way of improvement in physics. The 2 page summary for each chapter and the various detailed notes has helped improve and deepen my understanding of each chapter which further allows me to perform well in the subject. Thank you for all the help! Couldn’t have come this far without all the help.
Lim Cheyn Tong
Mr Kong has good mastery of the subject, and his teaching style has indeed made me understand and like Physics so much more.

His lessons are enjoyable, and he is very helpful and approachable. Thank you!
Chew Hong Yu
Initially before coming to Concept First I disliked physics as it was difficult to understand and I was falling back in class. I decided to give my last shot here before giving up, and I am glad I did. The tutors make learning physics fun and I always look forward to coming to the lessons. Although my grades have been fluctuating, I can definitely feel that my understanding of physics has improved tremendously, which I feel is more important because concept first. During lessons, the tutors goes at a steady pace and ensures that we students understand before moving on. They also take time to answer my questions painstakingly. While there are some tuition centres that value profit over students, I can say that Concept First values the students more. The concise notes have played an important role in my revision and are clearer than my school notes. All in all, I am glad to have found this place and learning physics has never been more fun. Thank you Mr Kong! I hope to do you proud in Os.
The lessons are well-planned and great! My Physics grades managed to improve from C5 to B3. His notes are also better than my school notes as it is more detailed. Without his help, I would not have understood most of the topics in Physics. However, because he had the June Holiday revision package, which was for us to pick up the chapters that we were weak in and of our preference. This helped me to keep up with my classmates in school. I really like his teaching method! I remembered once he showed us how Total Internal Reflection occurs by shining a green laser into a “diamond”. The view was spectacular.

Good teaching skills! My physics results improved tremendously after attending tuition. Explanation of concepts and materials given are also very good!
As I only started in June, the only time before O’s to see an improvement was prelims. Thankfully, I finally managed to pass physics for the first time in 2 years. I really believed that Concept First has been effective in teaching and I trust that my O’s will be significantly better. Thank you!
Ever since joining Concept First physics tuition, I have a better understanding of the topics. Moreover, I can see improvement in my class tests and exams. The teaching is easy to understand and they make physics way more interesting with use of props and storytelling. Unlike my previous physics tuition, Concept First provides the best materials for every student. The two page summary and answering guide saved me countless hours, instead of flipping my textbook, I can focus on studying the notes. With so many benefits, I truly recommend Concept First tuition to everyone who needs help in physics.

Mr Kong is a very responsible tutor and makes the lesson very fun. He teaches Physics well such that students understand his clear explanations. He also goes through many types of questions to prepare students for exams. This has benefitted me greatly.
Mr Kong has good mastery of the subject and is able to deliver the content well. He also gives detailed notes and summaries for every chapter and I am able to use them for my revision. He also tells us to bring it for every lesson so that we can refer to them easily. He follows the learning outcomes of the topic closely and uses them to create the summary notes.
Tham Yong Hsien
The materials provided such as worksheets and notes are very concise, which allows me to understand the topics and helps me study better. Through the tuition lessons, I was able to understand the concepts better as the tutors would always ensure that we understood each topic completely before moving on by showing us experiments and showing us examples to help us visualise.
I enjoy the tutors’ explanations as they draw out and use coloured inks which helps us to memorise the content easily. The two page summary, formula sheet, and explanation sheet were beneficial as it saves time and I do not need to read through the whole textbook before exams. I can refer to the one page summary while doing questions.The tutors have very fun personality which makes the lessons much more interesting.
Although I have only been in Concept First for the last three months, I feel that I have learnt and understood physics more than I have the past two years. Also, I am grateful that Mr Kong always makes time after his class to answer my questions to clear my doubts, and spending a lot of effort into the notes he creates.
Physics was initially one of my worst subjects. After joining Concept First, I had a new-found passion for physics. The explanations were clear and concise and helped me have a greater understanding of the subject of physics. With their help, physics became one of my better subjects and I improved greatly. Mr Kong is a passionate and caring teacher that always encouraged us students even though our grades were under our expectations. This encouraged me to not give up and keep pressing on.
Mr Calvin Kong has been an amazing tutor whom I can approach when in doubt of any concepts. Among all the tuitions I have heard of and attended, his lessons are the most organised and well-paced. It is never to fast to catch up nor too slow hence making one doze off. The materials he had created are just awesome and it allows me to grasp the concepts quickly. In all, his teachings had surely prepared me well for my O levels.
Mr Calvin Kong is one of the most passionate and creative tutor I have met. He is able to bring out the concepts well using different methods of teaching to strengthen my physics concepts. Most importantly, he is one of the most approachable, understanding person whom you can ask questions when in doubt. After attending his lessons, I gained more confidence and saw improvement in the subject which I initially lost hope in.
Teo Li Juan
Mr Kong is an approachable tutor whom allows students to ask him questions beyond class time. The materials he had prepared allowed me to have greater confidence in tackling difficult questions. His lessons were fun and enjoyable as he uses real life examples to explain certain concepts. He also tends to brighten up the class mood by trying to crack jokes or share the real life experiences he had gone through. Thanks to Mr Kong, I have greater confidence in the subject I once almost lost hope in.
His effective teaching techniques and engaging lessons pulled me up quickly and I eventually managed to obtain an A1 for my year-end Preliminary Examinations 3 months later. He makes lessons very interesting and its the first time that I actually looked forward to going to tuition! ? I myself am surprised that I could jump so many grades in a short period of time with his help. Mr Kong is also very humorous and never fails to brighten up the mood of the class.
Kelly Ng, parent of Leong Jing Wen
My child likes his teaching very much as she is able to understand the concepts better. I regretted not sending her to Calvin Kong’s class earlier. Thank you for teaching her!
Leong Jing Wen
After attending Mr Kong’s class for just 2 months, I find that I am starting to be more confident and regained the faith in myself as all the fundamentals which I previously failed to grasp are now made clear. The entire learning experience is simply unforgettable and had made me believe in the impossible and to have the courage to challenge myself.
Ang Shi Ying
When I first joined the tuition in July, I was inevitably scared that I had to put in lots of hard work to improve since my foundation for Physics was not solid and it was only a few months away to my O Levels. However, the learning tools and lessons planned by you were both effective and efficient in helping me to understand the concepts that I previously did not understand. Furthermore, you constantly motivate me and are always very patient with any questions that I had clarified. Thank you for making Physics such an awesome subject!
Mr Kong’s lessons are extremely enriching because I am able to build upon and expand on what is taught in school. Moreover, the lessons strengthen my foundation on weaker chapters such as electricity and magnetism. Through demonstrations in class, I am able to understand concepts better instead of memorising information to regurgitate them during examinations. Unlike school teachers, Mr Kong views questions through students’ perspectives and explains them using a step-by-step approach. Mr Kong’s ability to teach difficult questions has made me realise that Physics is not that complicated a subject.
Concept First Tuition is good. Very organised, good notes, good practice, lots of good questions given, explanation is very in depth and clear a lot of demonstration. After all chapters have been taught, worksheets of previous chapters were given to ensure that we remembered everything. Tests were given for each chapter and overall paper 2 given too. Real world context questions were given too. Coloured notes provided that include all the formulas, definitions, chapter summaries and answering techniques were provided.
Mr Kong has greatly enhanced my understanding in the subject. Physics is one of the subjects I disliked the most because my teacher had never really taught us about the application of concepts and simply read what was in the textbook. I joined the class considerably late in April 2018 with faint understanding of the subject, but after attending the March holidays revision classes and attempting the extra practice questions given, I can confidently say that all my doubts for the Secondary 3 topics that I was very confused about has been cleared and Physics seems more bearable and enjoyable. Thank you Mr Kong!
The concepts that is being shared with the class is easy to understand and straight forward. Felt more confident when applying the concepts learned during school exams. Highly recommend the practical lab workshop as it enables students to be more confident and assured during school lab practices and the actual ‘O’ level practical examination.
I always enjoy Mr Kong’s classes. He explains concepts very well and sometimes add in interesting facts that help to deepen my interest and broaden my knowledge. Mr Kong is a friendly and approachable teacher whom I can turn to when I need help with my Physics. Mr Kong sometimes makes us laugh with his funny comments and jokes and this livened up the class. Thank you very much, Mr Kong for being my tutor.
Mr Calvin Kong’s classes are very engaging. He explains very clearly, using keywords to help me understand the different topics better. His 2-page summary and revision worksheets are instrumental in helping me improve quickly, as they are easy to understand.
Akif Naufal bin Ahmad Sanhajie
Lessons with Mr Kong were fun and engaging. I learnt so much about Physics and improved. Mr Kong delivers his lessons clearly with much understanding. His lessons are well-planned and he maximises the time we have every lesson to ensure that every student understands. I enjoy all of Mr Kong’s lessons. Mr Kong relates well with me and I feel comfortable to talk with him and clarify my doubts in certain topics.
Concept First has helped me understand the concepts, enjoy and appreciate physics much more than before. From a student who hardly understand barely any physics concepts to one who is able to now achieve distinction, I truly think the tutors have helped me alot.
Khoo Zhi Luo
Nearing exams, I was able to dish out what was required as the information was in-build in my head. Thanks Mr Kong!
Mr Calvin Kong is a friendly and humorous teacher who is able to make physics an enjoyable subject. During lessons, he tries to ensure that everyone is able to keep up with him, so that no one feels lost. For the blander aspects of physics, he spices them up with links to our daily lives. And for some of the tougher chapters, he goes through them in greater detail with many helpful drawings. I have had fun learning under him.
Elita Elisabeth Eso
I really hated Physics in Secondary 3 and 2 and I did not understand a majority of the concepts taught in school. I really needed tuition but I could not figure out which tuition centre would be the best pick. That’s when my Chemistry tutor and school mate recommended Mr Calvin Kong’s classes to me. I really never thought I would ever like Physics but surprisingly I started liking the subject more as I begin to have a better understanding of the concepts. I first attended the intensive revision classes and it proved to be extremely helpful thus I decided to continue with the regular classes to improve further. I have seen such a huge improvement in my grades and I am really grateful for Mr Calvin Kong as he really knows how to ensure every single student in the class understands not only the topic but even a specific question. He preampts what all doubts we many have on the topic and addresses them before we could even ask. I am really grateful that I joined the tuition centre.
Really helped me understand the subject better and cleared out parts I had questions about.
Mr Kong has good mastery of Physics and is extremely approachable and supportive. His teaching style suits different types of students with different capabilities. He has certainly given the motivation and support needed for me to give my best for this subject. He is the best teacher I have met who gives in optimal effort to make lessons enjoyable and efficient. He has also proven to be one of the best tutors in the market in helping 90% of students attain As over the years. When I joined his tuition centre in 2017, I had a grade of F9 and within 2 months, he helped me pull my grades up to an A2! I would definitely recommend the future batch of students to have faith in Mr Kong’s methodology.
Lim Yu Xuan
I entered the tuition centre hoping to improve my physics. My score during Sec 3 mid years was a horrendous F9. I expected nothing much from this tuition and just wanted my score to be raised to a C6 or C5. However, the lessons were really interesting! The two page summary for every chapter were really effective. The worksheets given in class helped me to understand chapters better. Most importantly, the lessons were never boring, in fact, the tutors got me interested in physics! My grades then improved by at least 5 grades by the end of the mid terms in Sec 4. I definitely recommend Concept First!
I joined Concept First tuition centre when I was in secondary 3. I was getting B4 for physics and failing class tests most of the time. However, with the help of the tutors, I gradually improved. I finally achieved A1 for physics in my final GE2 examination so I am very grateful that I was able to join this tuition centre. The notes and worksheets are always improving and are of very high quality. I definitely recommend Concept First tuition to anyone interested in improving their physics subject. The classes are also engaging as they use different types of toys to show the physics concepts, making it really easy to digest difficult concepts.
Sayyid Mehdi Bin Safiyullah
The physics lessons are enriching and engaging. The summary notes provided are especially good as they provide key information which you can look through again once before the examination to refresh your memory. The explanations are also clear which helps clear up your misunderstandings and you will definitely see your physics grades improve.
Mr Calvin delivers his lessons using effective methods which had helped me recalled key concepts that I had struggled remembering in the past. He ensures that all students actively participate during lesson by making it fun. He fuels my drive to learn and set new benchmarks for myself to do better. I believe that Mr Calvin is able to continue inspiring further bathes of students.
Mr Kong cultivated in me the drive to achieve even better results. His clear and detailed explanations has heightened my ability to comprehend and solve physics problems more accurately. He has successfully managed to radiate his passion for the subject and encourage fruitful endavours. As a motivated and caring teacher, he reaches out in a myriad of ways to engage his students to obtain optimal learning and even beyond the confinements of the classroom. Thanks to him, I have never been more confident to embark my journey to O levels. =)
One word to describe Mr Calvin Kong – Brilliant! After attending his lessons, my passion, confidence and interest for the subject has grown tremendously. His intriguing live demonstrations had really helped me grasp difficult and confusing concepts that I was unable to understand in school. Calvin Kong’s notes are also well-crafted such that it breaks down each chapter into 2 to 3 sub-topics, making each chapter more digestible for students. He also ensures that they cover everything in the syllabus, leaving me with the peace of mind that I am well-prepared for my examinations. To end it off perfect, he provides us with his famous, concise 2-Page Summary that had made self-revision much easier and efficient.
Mr Calvin Kong uses very innovative and interactive ways to teach in class. His lessons are fun to attend, and he made me like Physics more. I can already see an improvement in my grades after attending classes for 2 months. I’ll definitely recommend him to my schoolmates and friends!
Being someone who finds no interest in Physics, I found it hard to do well and eventually lost the motivation to try and understand the topics or even to listen in class. Mr Calvin Kong has his ways to relate Physics to common activities in daily lives. This not only strengthened my concepts but also gave me the motivation to give my best as I finally understood the topics. His patience and encouragement and love for the subject has really shined through during the short few months with him. So thank you Mr Calvin Kong!
Mr Kong is an approachable and patient teacher. Under his guidance, I managed to have a deeper understanding of topics and concepts which were difficult to understand. I also gained a lot of confidence to attempt Physics questions and getting it correct. After attending Physics class, I could grasp the foundation of each topic better. He always tries to ensure that we understand Physics concepts and answers all our enquiries. Even though I enrolled into his class at the last minute, I was able to gain sufficient help and benefitted greatly from his lessons.
I have benefitted and improved a lot after joining Concept First. The lessons conducted were very informative and detailed so that everyone in the class is able to understand and acquire the skills needed. Mr Kong is able to clear all my doubts and even show examples and demonstrations to enable me to understand the questions better. The summary notes given was also extremely helpful and lessons were enjoyable. For example, RMIVUXG, Ronald Mcdonald is very ugly extremely gay makes it easy to memorise through funny ways.
Mr Calvin Kong is a tutor who is passionate about teaching. He is able to deliver concepts in a very clear and concise manner. His friendly and positive attitude makes him very approachable. He makes physics more understandable and enjoyable which strengthened my interests in the subject.
Thank you for all the time you have spent on teaching me. I has been really fun and enjoyable for me. Even though I have only been with you for 3 months only, I have learnt a lot. I started out without really understanding all the different concepts. However because of you have understood many things. Thank you!
Thanks for teaching me, although the time we spent together hasn’t been long. I appreciate the efforts you put into helping me. Your lessons have been fun and engaging and I have been able to clarify most of my doubts with you. You summary notes are really helpful too!
I started as a very weak student in Physics and during the December holidays I went for the crash courses for the individual chapters which really helped me better understand the chapters better and boosted my confidence in Physics. During my subsequent tests, I improved significantly and panicked much less during the tests. The materials provided by this tuition centre is very concise and easy to understand, this allowed me to grasp the concepts much faster and know the learning objectives of each chapter clearer. Having the information at the tip of my fingers enabled me to answer questions quickly and accurately. Mr Kong always does his best to make the best materials for us to enhance our learning.
Kuik Tze Rui
I am very grateful to be able to get the opportunity to join concept first. Before joining concept first, I was scoring D7 in my school MYE. Initially, I thought that I would fail miserably for physics during O Levels as there wasn’t any hope. With the introduction of concept first, my interest in the subject of physics has grown. I feel very motivated to come to the center regardless of how far I stayed. The teachers, especially Mr Kong, is very kind and helpful and will always be putting in is 101% best for his students. Whenever I had difficulties , he would always help me, ensuring that I fully understand. With his guidance and useful learning resources, I scored an A2 during prelims. I would like to thank Mr Kong for his efforts and thoughtfulness for his students, especially changing my perception of physics. Highly encouraged to join the tuition center!
Mr Calvin Kong reinvigorated my passion for physics after having lost it. Even though having been with him for only a few months before O Levels, I have felt a higher level of understanding in my physics knowledge. The only regret I have with him is to not join Concept First sooner.
I am able to experience more questions and allowed me to tackle different types of questions. I was able to find my weak points and improve enough for Os.
Mr Kong has been my Physics tutor for the last 2 years since June last year in 2017. My grade before I joined was C6 and my most recent grade in prelims was a B3. He has helped me improve greatly throughout the course of this 2 years and helped me have a better understanding of Physics and the various topical concepts. Through the informative notes the countless revision worksheets, I was able to revise better and have better confidence in my preparation. I highly recommend Mr Kong, as a tutor to improve your child’s Physics grade.
Chan Wei Jie
I tried a few tuition centres but realised that simply doing worksheets and going through the answers were ineffective. Now, thanks to Mr Kong’s detailed lessons on each topic, I was able to easily understand the concepts.
Sandy, parent of Chan Wei Jie
Wei Jie lost interest in the subject due to his poor results and the constant struggle in trying to understanding the school teacher’s explanations. Before we found Calvin, Wei Jie tried 2 other tutors. He eventually switch to Calvin after the trial class as his class includes good explanations on every topic and the fact that he highlights to Wei Jie where he is weak at had given him many opportunities to improve. From failing in Sec 3, to getting a distinction for his GCE O-level after a year of tuition with Calvin is a great improvement! Wei Jie shows joy when he speaks of Physics since. Thanks, Calvin!
Lim Zhong Han
Mr Kong is a very patient and funny tutor. He will allow students to stay back and ask him questions to clarify doubts. He is clear in his teaching and under him, my Physics has improved a lot. He helped me strengthen my basic concepts and his worksheets provide me a platform to apply what he taught so that I know how much I have understood. Even though I live quite far away, I still feel that it is worth it going for his lessons as I learn so much from him. Lastly, he is able to motivate students to be the best they can be so as to realise their potential. I truly have benefitted a lot from Mr Kong ever since I joined his class.
Mr Calvin Kong’s effective teaching methods had made our revision for the o levels more efficient and fruitful. Over time, I feel more confident in the subject.
My mother found concept first tuition centre through facebook. Fast forward 8 months, I was no longer barely passing physics and have scored B3 for my prelims. The tutors have not only helped me but many other students as well judging by how we thought the O Level paper 2 was a breeze. I highly recommend this tuition center for anyone who needs help in physics.
Not only does Mr Kong explain the physics concepts thoroughly and effectively, he also makes an effort to link the concepts to real life applications, which is not commonly done by most teachers. His passion towards this subject has also inspired me to grow and develop an interest and appreciation for physics as not just a subject but a useful application in our everyday lives. Mr Kong is also very meticulous and organised as shown through the worksheets and notes that he gives to his students. For example, the focus points in every chapter, which I find it very useful and unique. Besides that, he is a very encouraging and thoughtful tutor, often sharing insightful advice to his students and always doing his best to help every student excel! Thank you Mr Kong.
I joined the tuition centre in 2017 when I was in Secondary 3. The lessons really helped me to gain interest in Physics as a subject. The tutor was able to bring real life examples and make it more relevant to our daily lives. The revision notes and exercises have been very helpful and in terms of exposure to a wide range of content and questions.
When I first started on Mr Kong’s tuition classes, I was very weak in Physics. However, as I attended more classes, I found myself understanding the concepts better, and also I was able to answer questions with the appropriate keywords needed. The method of teaching is very useful for me and the many different worksheets and notes given by Mr Kong has helped me to strengthen my idea of the concepts.
I started off as a student who found no interest in Physics lessons and never understood the concepts till I reached Secondary 4. I was finding it hard to do well or even stay awake in class. After attending Mr Calvin Kong’s class in the middle of Secondary 4, my results have greatly improved from an F9 in the Secondary 4 Mid Year Examinations to a B3 for my Secondary 4 Preliminary examinations. Mr Kong’s 2 paged summaries were extremely helpful as all the information was very well organised and succinct. He has definitely helped me gain confidence in the subject and learning from him has been beneficial and enjoyable. Thank you Mr Kong!
Mdm Chin, parent of Lauren Yap
Mr Calvin Kong is a teacher at ease with his subjects. From a F9 (MYE) to a B3 (Prelim) in 2 short months! He has succeeded in delivering many if not all the concepts to Lauren and clearly understood by her. What a job Mr Kong has done! Thank you and best wishes.
Mr Kong’s lessons have helped me improve my Physics grade tremendously. His notes and worksheets are useful and have allowed me to gain a stronger understanding of the subject.
He is able to explain concepts easily in a simple way. I am able to remember and apply techniques during practice and examinations.
Not only did he dissect every chapters into clear distinct portions, he further breaks these portions down into bite-sized bits. In this way, he had made physics extremely easy to understand. Mr Kong does this using his 2 page summary sheets and worksheets which splits the chapter into a few key focuses. I am definitely glad that I had joined in. It is as he has promised – probably THE BEST physics tuition you can ask for.
Serena Lee Oh
Mr Kong’s teaching is concise and very relevant to our schoolwork! He is very personable and engaging, and his style is easy to follow and understand! Besides my grades improving substantially, my attitude towards physics has changed, and I enjoy it a lot now. Thanks Mr Kong:)
I think that the lessons are really enriching and the chapter summaries are also very helpful. The lessons are well planned out and there is always sufficient time to finish class work. The tutors take the time to explain difficult questions clearly so that it is easy to understand. I like that there are also many more MCQs or exam questions out together for us to try out at home and also the answer key allows me to refer whenever I’m stuck
I highly recommend Concept First tuition centre. The tutors really take the effort to make sure that every student understands what they teach in the classes. The lessons are very easy to understand and very engaging. They also takes time after classes to answer our questions, be it from the lesson or from school. The notes are very useful and simplified to ensure we understand every topic well. They are very easy going teacher and also very kind. The classes are never dull and boring and they try to make sure to help us students to enjoy this subject.
Tan Xuan Yan
Throughout Secondary 3, I struggled to grasp concepts and was consistently scoring Bs for Physics. Because of that, I dedicated very little time to study for my Physics papers. It wasn’t until the start of Secondary 4 that I found out about Mr Kong through my cousin and decided to give it one last try. Thanks to Mr Kong’s clear explanations, I could finally understand what was being taught in school. He is an approachable and patient teacher who takes time to answer questions over Whatsapp. I managed to clinch an A grade for both MYE and Prelims and topped the class for Sec 4 MYE.
Concept First classes have greatly benefited me in helping my physics to improve. Although for all my exams for physics, I have been getting F9, but there has been much improvement due the teaching and materials provided. The notes are concise and really helpful in helping me to remember key points and formulas. Mr Kong always puts in his 110% effort to teach students and often stayed back after classes no matter how late to answer our questions. Along with his tutoring and my own hard work, I am confident I would obtain a grade of B4 and above for my O level Physics and do Mr Kong proud.
Ang Ying, Jamie
Mr Kong is a really really great Physics tutor! It is because of Mr Kong that I started to like the subject, because he makes lessons really interesting and engaging by using different methods, such as using different terms to explain a certain Physics concept. It is because of his lessons that when I learn about the same concept in school, I am better able to grasp and understand the lessons in school. Also, Mr Kong asks and he would not hesitate to sit down with us in order to make sure we understand the concepts. I would really like to thank Mr Kong for teaching and guiding us throughout every single lesson! I really wished I joined Mr Kong’s tuition earlier! Thank you Mr Kong!
I managed to grasp a better understanding in my physics concepts. Honestly, I pretty much hated physics because I was constantly failing physics so concept first helped me start to gain some interest in physics. Mr Kong, specifically, is also very willing to stay back after lessons to clear any questions that we have, sometimes even up to 1hr after class, so I appreciate it very much!
Mr Kong’s Physics Tuition provided me with adequate practice from his hand-picked questions, comprehensive hand-written notes, and in-depth explanations in class. All these definitely boosted my understanding of Physics concepts and led me to top my class with an A1 grade in my Prelims, from and F9 in my common test 1. I am glad I joined Mr Kong’s class as I doubt, I would have made such a great improvement without his help.
Through Mr Kong’s classes, I got exposed to many questions that were challenging, and by attempting them, I get a better grasp of the concepts involved. Also, through the fun and interactive lessons, I learnt Physics in a much easier wat that really helped me a lot.
Chew Yu Rong
Mr Kong is able to explain many different concepts and he ensures every student understands the concepts. Under his tutelage, I was able to improve from an E8 to B3 within three months. I feel that I have learnt a lot under Mr Kong. There were many times I struggled with the concepts, and Mr Kong took the effort to use different softwares to explain the concept. Mr Kong’s lessons are well-prepared and his materials are very useful in helping me to prepare for the O levels. Over these months, I have improved tremendously and have understood many of the concepts I used to struggle with last time.
Mr Kong is very patient and helpful. He also takes time to look through each student’s mistakes. He is very knowledgeable and resourceful and specially prepares materials for his classes.
Chua Yan Ling
Before joining Concepts First, I really disliked Physics. With the guidance of Mr Kong, not only did I grow to like the subject, I also understood the concepts better. Mr Kong is extremely passionate and patient when it comes to teaching his students.
I was advised by my school teacher to drop Pure Physics. Through Mr Calvin Kong’s teaching, I gradually understood more each day. The O-level Preparation Worksheets he created, together with his clear explanations, had helped me to understand concepts better. After a while, I grew more comfortable with the subject and to my delight, I scored a C5 for Prelims 1, an A2 for Prelims 2 and O Levels.
As one who is truly dedicated to teaching and helping his students learn Physics better, Mr Kong is a kind-hearted teacher who selflessly devotes himself to teaching Physics to his students. He is a helpful and caring teacher who will help you whenever you are stuck with a particular question or unsure of certain concepts/answers/ideas. He will personally devote his time to stay back and slowly guide you through on how to go about doing the questions that you are unsure of, and for that I am very grateful to him. He is definitely a master in Physics as the answers and explanations that he gives in his worksheets/ test papers/ practice papers are of great quality and you may actually be surprised after reading/ listening to his explanations as it really gives you insights on how to better answer questions and apply key terms and concepts, this thus makes his teaching style and answering style unique and special. I am very grateful to him as he has taught me Physics in a new and unique way which has made me better understand the subject as a whole, I felt that I have greatly improved in the subject under him and for that I am sincerely and truly grateful to him. His lessons are very fun and interesting and I will definitely miss his lessons in class. I do hope I can keep in touch with him and get to hang out together with him and with the other classmates.
Though I joined the class really late, Mr Kong has helped me clarify a lot of my doubts and understand Physics much better. His summary notes for each chapter are straight to the point, thus I have been able to learn and understand the focus of each chapter. My Physics has definitely improved under his teaching methods and the practices we do in class, and I am glad that I dislike Physics less now that I understand it better.
Justin Neo Yunhui
I feel that tuition was very helpful in helping me understand Physics better and also in a easier way. When I came in in September 2017, my results were not ideal and I did not understand the concepts and I was only going through the exams through memorising. After attending the tuition, I started to get the hang of Physics and my results drastically improved. I found Physics to be fun and enjoyed it. I understand lessons in school and overall found it very helpful in O Level preparation especially the 2-page summaries.
Thank you Mr Kong for making classes really enjoyable for by showing us real-life demonstrations to help us learn certain concepts more easily and being super patient with me by repeating to me again and again until I understand. Thank you for letting me change from a person who initially had 0 confidence and interest in Physics, to become someone who has started to enjoy, love and develop confidence in it. I will miss your really entertaining lessons and the small chats you have with our class during breaks and being super friendly with us treating us as friends! Although I only started in July and only attended your classes for about 5 months, I have improved and gained a better understanding of Physics. I really enjoy and will definitely miss your lessons! Thank you for being the best tuition teacher I have met so far.
The teaching in Concept First is great as it is easy to understand and the problems the teacher gives are challenging, which can help the students to understand better.
I enjoyed the questions that Mr Kong put in the worksheets and found them quite interesting and fun to do. His explanations and drawings on his computer tablet are very clear and succinct, making it easy for me to understand the Essence of every question. Other than that, I appreciated the fact that mr Kong is a patient tutor who is always willing to answer my questions in real life and on WhatsApp ?
Ong Rui Min
I joined Mr Kong’s Physics Tuition class after scoring very badly for my school’s Preliminary Examination 1. Under his tutoring, I managed to jump 6 grades for my Preliminary Examinations 2! His classes are very engaging, and he has a way to make physics easy to understand. Through that, I had gained much valuable knowledge on physics. Overall, I enjoyed and befitted from his classes greatly.
Onn Wan Ni
Mr Kong is a very nice and patient teacher. The resources given has proved to be really helpful in my studies and I will always browse through his notes and worksheets before any test or exam and he always tries his best to make learning easy and fun. He is very approachable and always answers any queries I have.
I have never joined any tuition classes before and was slightly sceptical about how effective it would be. However, I was certainly not disappointed when I joined Mr Kong’s Physics Tuition Class. He had helped me understood Physics a lot better and I saw a huge improvement in my grades. After over a year of lessons, I am happy to say that he was not only and outstanding tutor but also a friend to me! Through his lessons, I learned not just physics concepts, but also study techniques and to develop a good learning attitude. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication Mr Kong!
Phua Qin Yi Venice
Mr Kong’s tuition class has enabled me to understand concepts clearer. The revision notes were clear and detailed. Before attending this tuition, I had many misconceptions and also did not have notes to refer to during the revision period. After being exposed to various worksheets and revision notes, I was able to grasp the Physics concepts more easily. I also learnt about the various answering techniques and ways to tackle questions in Paper 2. All in all, I am very grateful for the help that Mr Kong provides me with!
Mr Kong has been really helpful and patient with me for the past two years. In the past, I could not grasp the concepts for physics. Mr Kong has made lessons fun and simple for students. I have improved tremendously from F9 in secondary 3 to a B3 in prelims. From real life demonstrations to staying back to help out, Mr Kong is a very dedicated teacher with great passion for physics. Thank you Mr Kong!
Concept First tutors have been very helpful and I have picked up a lot of skills for physics during the lessons. I really enjoy the lessons and I’m very thankful to have signed up for Concept First. After I attended the lessons this year, I have improved by achieving B3 for my prelims.
The tutors are extremely dedicated who always come up with new ways of helping the students to understand the concepts even better. From real life demonstrations to comprehensive notes, the lessons are really engaging and helpful in my physics journey. Mr Kong especially would also not hesitate to stay back after lessons to explain questions to clarify any doubts. Thank you Mr Kong for your guidance and patience in your teaching
Before attending this tuition class, I usually scored badly for Physics and thus disliked the subject a lot. However, Mr Kong managed to make the classes interesting, especially by the demonstrations he did to prove a particular theory. By encouraging students to answer questions in class also gave me more encouragement to not give up on Physics. Therefore, his classes allowed me to gain confidence and like this subject more, which resulted in an improvement in my Physics grades.

Furthermore, the notes provided are very useful for examinations and I definitely benefited a lot from the classes. Mr Kong is a teacher who seriously cares a lot about his students and their academic performance. For the past year, my grades have improved from an unsteady pass to a steady distinction. I am very thankful and extremely grateful for his help!
Mr Kong’s lessons are really fun and enjoyable. When I first went into his lesson I didn’t like physics however Mr Kong made me become more interested in the subject. His lessons made me have a clearer understanding on the concepts that my teachers teach in school. He uses various methods to ensure that we understand the concept better. For example when we were going through the chapter on light and lens Mr Kong showed us some experiments to enable us to have a better understanding on the concept. This method was really helpful for me as I am a more visual learner so looking at these experiments actualy helps me to clear my doubts and allow me to understand better Mr Kong is also very helpful. He always helps me and friends after class if we have questions to ask even though it is already very late at night. I am really grateful for Mr Kong as his lessons has made me more interested in the subject and has made me improve a lot. Thank you Mr Kong for helping me so much.

You are an amazing tutor who were able to deliver the concepts to us in a clear and concise manner. I was a straight F9 student in Secondary 3 but after joining your tuition class in April, my results improved to an C5 for the prelims, within 3 months. I now have a much better understanding of the subject and I believe I will do even better for the O Levels. Honestly, you are the best tutor I have ever met, and I would strongly recommend others to join your class!
Concept First classes are very helpful to me as the tutors explain concepts well. The notes are also very helpful (much easier to understand than the textbook). The classes are also useful as we can ask questions after or during class if we do not understand anything.

True enough, my child found his classes very effective and helpful. She liked it very much. Overall, I feel that Mr Kong is a very caring teacher who makes an effort to understand each student’s needs. I highly recommend his tuition classes to those who are searching for one. Thank you!
Yan Jia Yi
His lessons are very interesting often with humour injected and thus never boring. Before I join his class, I was considering if I should drop pure physics as I have never really been doing well and I was very worried. However, after I joined his classes, I gained lots of confidence, help and encouragement and began to find myself liking the subject as time goes by. Not only that, Mr Kong is always approachable for consultation, thus allowing me to clear my doubts.
Mr Kong has always strived to make lessons engaging yet effective. He selflessly sacrifices his time to help us with our questions even after lessons too. He is very dedicated to teaching us, planning lesson schedules during the O Levels for each student based on their subject combination so that we would no get affected by the tuition classes while doing revision for the other subjects. This, I found to be extremely useful as before my Physics examination I could still have a lesson with him despite the hectic exam timetable.
Mr Calvin Kong is a very kind, caring and cheerful teacher. He is always in a good mood in class and takes a keen interest in his students’ learning. His lessons are always clear and engaging and he always allows time for students to clarify their doubts. His classes have definitely helped me a lot.
I started to regain an interest in Physics and my knowledge in the subject had also deepened. The notes and worksheets prepared by him are really useful and knowing how to solve the problems in them gave me the confidence to tackle challenging questions. His 2-paged summaries had helped to make my revision much easier as it saved me the time and trouble to reread the textbook all over again.
I personally liked the 22 page summary provided by Concept First. It helped me alot in my revision for O levels. I didn’t need to waste time writing physics notes. Mr Kong is a helpful teacher who helps us when we are in doubt. The lessons conducted were comprehendable and organised. Mr Kong is willing to help his students with doubt in their work or extra practices. He goes the extra mile to help me solve questions over whatsapp. My physics results have improved from a borderline pass to B3.
Neo Kai Xuan
He makes lessons fun with his jokes and stories. He is also very patient with helping his students when they are in need of help. Thanks to him, I look forward to his lessons every time.
He has different ways of explaining the same concepts. Caring and kind, he would often pop questions to check if his students understood the lesson. Funny and hilarious, he is able to make any boring topic sound fun and engaging. Overall, he is the best physics teacher!
Teo Yi Xun
Having joined the tuition centre only a few months before my O Levels, the tuition class provided lots of resources to better equip me and boosted my confidence for my examination.
The team of tutors have helped me improved very much. The 2-page summary is extremely helpful in allowing me to remember many key concepts. They have simplified many hard-to-understand concepts into bite-sided information such that it is remembered easily. The many types of questions allow us to broaden our perspectives on how to tackle questions.
Liew Khai Hung
Mr Calvin Kong’s Physics Tuition Class is so much more than what it seems. With only two hours sessions per week, I was not just able to master Physics well, but also to consult Mr Kong on E and A Maths. He has made topics easier to understand and has helped tremendously in building up my confidence in getting an A1 for all the 3 subjects.
Despite living all the way in the East, I still decided to attend Mr Kong’s lessons because he is able to help me understand each chapter better. Thanks to Mr Kong, I understand the formula and more importantly the concepts and can now effectively apply them to the many different questions.
Under his brilliant tutelage, I begin to see the subject from a different perspective, attained a deeper understanding of the concepts, and eventually grew to like it. Physics was no longer as dry a subject as I use to perceive it when I see how he brought the subject to life in many ways such as his self-created animations and 3-D models. I also really appreciate that my questions via WhatsApp are always answered so promptly and with amazing clarity such that I only need read once to understand the concepts involve and clear my doubts.
Mr Tan, parent of Rachel Tan
My daughter started to like the subject more after attending Calvin’s classes. Lessons are interesting and engaging. His notes are concise and clear and the practices given are useful and effective.

Very approachable tutors that are willing to go the extra mile to explain difficult concepts.
Concept First lessons are always very fun and I always look forward to the lessons! The tutors made physics easier for me to understand after attending the tuition. The tutors always attend to the students needs and explain in easier terms. Concept First has a very good classroom environment and I highly recommend this tuition although I live far from clementi. The tutors also always encourage us to do our best with our effort. Best physics tuition centre!
I have joined Concept First tuition for almost 2 years and I use to get F9 for my physics and I made improvements in my prelims. The summary provided is very useful as it summarises every chapter into two pages. Mr Kong is also very friendly and will explain all the misconceptions patiently. I enjoy all of his lessons as he uses experiments to allow us to better visualise the concepts.
Mr Kong is a humorous person and that makes his classes very entertaining. He also brings out life examples of the rules and laws and applied them to real world context. He will also put in extra effort to create summaries, cheat sheets for us to remember. Lesson timings are well planned and we have sufficient time to understand and break. The room is always clean, bright and the surroundings is most certainly comfortable.
Mr Kong always has a ‘master plan’ for his lessons from practical to MCQ and Paper 2, he seems to have the materials for everything. I don’t know of any other centres that prepare students for the practical examinations. So, I was surprised when Mr Kong mentioned he would do so. I always learn something new in every lesson, be it an important answering technique or examination skills. There is also no time wasted during lessons as he prepares explanations, of whatever questions we do in class beforehand.
Concept First has been a great help in my sec 4 physics journey. The tutors have put their hearts and souls into providing materials for us and they have also been an inspiration for me personally. They made me go from hating physics to the core to loving it to the moon. They infuse many live demonstrations into the classes which really made lessons more enjoyable and exciting. Thank you all once again for your help!
Mr Calvin Kong ensures that we are able to internalise the general concepts before teaching us how to apply them in the questions. He always has many teaching methods to make sure every student understands the concepts. His experiments are magical. I am honoured to have him as my tutor. I believe that he will definitely help every student to achieve their dreams.
The tutor is friendly and nice towards his students. He plans his lessons well, and it is an enjoyable and fun experience to attend his lessons. He helped me to gain confidence in the subject and it is able to improve myself tremendously.
Mr Calvin Kong is a caring and fun teacher who is also easy to approach. After attending his classes, I was able to understand many concepts that I previously failed to grasp. He tries to make lessons hands-on and easy to visualise so that students are able to better understand. Thanks to Mr Kong, I was able to enjoy learning Physics ?
Concept First provides concise summary notes with all the key points for the topics. The tutors provide more than enough questions for practise and are always willing to clarify our doubts when we ask questions. They make lessons fun and entertaining while ensuring that we learn something.
Concept First’s two page summary helps greatly when revising for an upcoming exam and having all the main points for every topic makes revision easier and more efficient. Additionally, the tutors are very funny and make the lessons entertaining and hilarious. They also teach topics thoroughly and answer any questions we have. Moreover, they always have extra work and materials available when I finish the lesson’s work quickly.
Mr Kong had given me a clearer and deeper understanding of Physics concepts and how it can be applied not only in questions but also in real life scenarios. I was never fond of Physics, but Mr Kong has made learning Physics a lot more fun and engaging, rekindling my interest in science.
Amanda Han Xin Hui
Despite the short period I have been with the centre, I was able to clarify many key concepts and answering strategies in the lessons through critical learning. If I had known about this centre much earlier, I am sure my results would be much more spectacular. I am now able to see Physics as a fun and relatable subject and can find myself thinking of what kinds of Physics has been applied in my daily life and would recommend this class to anymore who struggles to understand the concepts taught in school.
Ashley Chan Si Ya
Your classes are extremely engaging and entertaining. It definitely made Physics more enjoyable and easier to grasp. The lessons are well-paced with short YouTube breaks that helps keep up the fun atmosphere. You are approachable and friendly which makes it easier to clarify any doubts after lesson. Thank you
After reading his detailed notes that are so well organised, I am able to connect the dots between the various chapters. The worksheets he created are very aligned with the o-level syllabus and standards such that after doing them, we feel confident about the upcoming exams.
Physics has always been a confusing subject until I joined Mr Kong’s physics tuition class. His clarity in explanation had made the subject much easier to understand. Not only can we approach him during class time, online communication has also made it easier for me to ask questions.
Firstly, before joining Concept First I was constantly just passing. Eventually, I had lost interest and motivation to learn physics. However, after joining Concept First, I could finally understand the concepts and my mistakes. The worksheets provided are tougher than school materials and notes are provided for us to use. After a few months. I had improved greatly and more importantly, I had gained back my confidence to improve.
The tutors have been of great help in restoring my interests in physics and helping me jump 3 grades from my mid-year to prelims. The notes are very comprehensive and easy to understand. The teaching methods have also assisted me in remembering key points in topics and crucial concepts. The lessons are often interesting as they do their best to engage each student during each session. I am sure that your child will see significant improvements so long as they are willing to learn and consistently put in hard work.
I like the summary for each topic and the method of explaining different topics through the tablet. The two sided summary for definitions are also very helpful.
Concept First has helped me to feel confident in sitting for my O’ Level Physics paper as I achieved higher understanding and better application skills in the subject due to the lessons.
Concept First tutors have clarified many of my doubts in Physics since I joined at the end of Secondary 3. They are always very detailed in the explanation of concepts, and in breaking down questions so that students can understand it easier and better. I feel that I am now more certain and confident in answering Physics questions, as I now have a better understanding of the various topics in the Physics syllabus, and have seen a big improvement in my grades from E8 to B3.
Lai Xu Qing
Mr Kong is a very hardworking individual and always tries his best to refine his lesson materials. I believe that the result of his efforts can be seen from the quality of the notes and papers provided. I think that the summary sheets provided by Concept First are the best you can ever ask for. Mr Kong compiles the information and key points from every topic and teaches it in a way that is easy to digest and understand. I strongly believe that students who join will benefit from the lessons and results can be seen after a short period of time
Liew Jia Wen
Having physics tuition with my class mates has made learning physics to be a much more enjoyable experience, especially with such a wonderful physics tutor who explains concepts in a very clear and detailed manner. His lessons has made me become more interested in Physics, both within and beyond the 0-level syllabus.
Lim Ming Hui
His classes are always interactive and supplemented with detailed notes and worksheets. He is always willing to clear my doubts and answer my questions. I first joined his class in March of Secondary 4, when my grade for CA1 was an F9. Within 2 months, my grade improved to B3 for the Mid-year Examinations!
Moe Thaw Kong
Mr Calvin is a very dedicated teacher who always took the extra time to answer my questions. May it be after class or over whatsapp, he was sure to help me clarify my questions and help me deepen my understanding in my concepts. In class, the tutors use a variety of methods to illustrate physics concepts. This made them really easy to understand. I sincerely enjoyed every physics lesson here.
Lessons are enjoyable and effective. Mr Calvin Kong explains concepts really well and as simply as it can get. The atmosphere during class is very relaxed and I feel at ease when learning. The notes are extremely helpful as the contents are separated into different sections of the syllabus. Furthermore, Mr Kong is caring, humorous and makes lessons fun.
Mr Calvin Kong uses innovative and methodical approaches to help his students better digest chunks of concepts. He truly brings out the vibrancy of the subject by crafting intriguing lessons filled with demonstrations, simulations and such. At the same time, he is extremely dedicated and provides many crucial and useful resources that tremendously aid us in exams. Attending his lessons was really a wisening and impactful experience.
Through your notes I was able to go from understanding almost nothing about the topic to being able to grasp and recall concepts easily enough. I enjoyed your lessons as they were easily understandable and made me more confident in my abilities, as well as your entertainment keeping me awake. Thank you Mr Kong!
Kayle De Silva
Even some of the more difficult topics had become easy to grasp after attending his classes, and I definitely felt more confident when sitting for my exams. His enthusiasm is extremely motivational and has inspired me to set higher targets for myself. Overall, this is one of the best physics tuition classes I have ever attended.
Koh Hui Qing
I ended Secondary 3 with generally poor results in Physics and I spent several days deliberating whether I should drop the subject. But luckily, after I saw Mr Kong’s advertisements, I decided to give Physics one more shot. I joined Mr Kong’s classes at the end of 2016, and the first lesson on EM Waves already allowed me to gain more faith in my ability in Physics. Through the course of 2017, my grades in Physics improved tremendously, and I began to like the subject more than I ever had.
I joined Concept First out of desperation because I caught no ball in school lessons. The tutors were able to explain the different topics and concepts clearly and precisely, and I benefited a lot from that. Mr Kong would ensure that students knew what the question requirements were and then teach them how to answer to different parts of the question while going through questions, he would also write tips and notes for students to copy for future reference, which is helpful when they want to revise that particular “trick” in the question. I recommend this class for students who are struggling to understand concepts or missing the question requirements.
After attending Mr Calvin Kong’s class since early this year, my results have had a tremendous improvement from C5 in Secondary 3 SA2 to a Distinction for my Secondary 4 Preliminary Examinations. I find Mr Kong’s teaching style and materials provided very efficient and effective for my learning as compared to my previous tutors. He is very approachable and is always willing to meet outside lesson time to answer my doubts. Thank you, Mr Kong!
Mrs Chu, parent of Francis Chu
I find Mr Kong very approachable, whether in person or via Whatsapp. Initially, I was a little disappointed when my request to remove his company’s water mark was turned down as I reasoned to him how they makes reading difficult. I was surprised later to find that Mr Kong actually make an effort to blank out certain parts of his watermark so as to make sure that the content of his study material are not effected – this requires more effort and time. Thank you, Mr Kong. This tells me that you are a very conscientious teacher, and do not turn a deaf ear to parents’ feedback!
The lesson notes prepared by Mr Calvin Kong are very concise, yet comprehensive, helping me to relearn my weaker topics quickly. He is able to explain the difficult concepts very clearly and with great details. He is also able to explain all the common mistakes made by students. In this way, we are more well-prepared and alert during the exams. I highly recommend his classes.
I enjoyed Concept First’s lessons every Sunday. The classes are never dull and boring, instead the tutors use humour to lighten the rigour of learning and understanding physics. Besides their superb teaching style, the notes, worksheet, and practical is of great tools to allow me to understand and practise physics with a breeze. Lastly, the summarised notes of 44 pages comes in handy whenever I do worksheets. It is easy and fast to refer to any page and most importantly to boost my memory. Mr Kong would provide more details on the questions we would ask him about, allowing us to better understand them. He makes the subject more bite-sized and manageable to tackle. I really feel content and happy with the help I received under Mr Kong’s teachings, so I recommend Concept First tuition centre to someone struggling with Physics.
The worksheets and summary pages were very useful in helping me understand the concepts better. I was also able to have more practise and exposure to common questions and more challenging questions which helped me to prepare for a wide variety of questions.
Before I attended his lessons Physics was subject that I disliked. However, after attending his lessons I have realised that Physics can be fun and interesting. The usual card tricks and stories that he shares with us allows us to enjoy his lessons. He is able to simplify difficult concepts and explain them with demonstrations making it much easier to understand them.
Really great tutor. Managed to easily understand topics that I was previously struggling with. He had also helped me to feel more confident in the subject and inspired me to learn more.
I dare say that I have learnt more about Physics in the 4 months with him than I have learnt from my 2 years in school!
I understand my Physics concepts better with the notes and lessons that were useful. Mr Kong explains his lessons in great detail and is able to make classes fun and engaging, which helped improve my Physics grades. He would clarify the doubts of all students easily and I enjoyed going for his classes each week.
Mr Calvin Kong teaches Physics with unparalleled clarity, and is the main reason for my huge improvement from where I started from – a state of not knowing anything about the subject. He keeps lesson interesting by conducting real-life demonstration and he provides many detailed worksheets and notes that students can refer to. I also greatly appreciate that he cares for our welfare. I will always remember that he treated me lunch when I ran out of money, and the fact that he does not charge fees during absence shows that he cares more for our benefits than his profit.
Mr Kong is an approachable and helpful teacher that guides us in every way possible. I can always count on him to explain the abstract concepts clearly and with the addition of different learning materials- difficult exam questions, consolidated notes and visual animations, students can expect to receive a straightforward and methodological approach in succeeding in their exams. Personally, I had consistently achieved C grades in my physics exam, however ever since joining, I have been attaining A or A* grades for my mock or semester exams.
This centre has helped me hate Physics a lot less. The teachers take time to stay back after class and give detailed explanations of any doubts I have. For example, my class ends at 8.30 pm and Mr Kong stayed back till 10.30 pm to answer all my questions. Despite my confusion and the many questions I had, Mr Kong was very patient and answered all my questions well. Classes are also very fun with his dad jokes and he is very friendly, which has made me like Physics more and more. Thank you for the past 2 years of tuition!
The team of tutors put a lot of thought and effort into planning and executing every lesson. They make sure that all of us understand the content that is being taught by checking for understanding and picking questions for us to do. Thanks to the lessons I was able to better understand the content taught in school.
After attending lessons with Mr Kong, I have become much more confident with myself in Physics and am not afraid to attempt various questions across different topics which I was afraid to even tackle before coming to Calvin Kong Physics! I was exposed to a wide variety of questions and answering techniques, especially certain keywords that the markers will look out for during examinations. This has boosted my confidence in Physics Paper 2 and I was pleased that the O Level paper was manageable in my case! The revision worksheets , summary sheets and extra practices were extremely useful in my revision for the O Levels. Thank you Mr Calvin Kong!
This tuition helped me get facts that I often get wrong right and help me to further understand the topics. I used to find physics a chore before I joined Concept First. The notes provided helped me a lot when I did my revision. The tuition facilities are clean and provide a conducive environment to study in.
Came to Concept First tuition centre only a few months ago (in July I think) and at that time I was failing pretty badly. In a span of just 5 months, my grades improved from D7 to B3 which is something pretty remarkable. I would not have been able to do it without the help of the team of tutors. Thank you for helping me so much in Physics and for making this subject so much more enjoyable.
I got an F9 for my CA1 in Secondary three before I joined Concept First tuition. In MYE, I failed to pass physics. Thereafter, in Secondary 4, when I dropped to combine science, I got A1 for physics in MYE and Prelims thanks to Mr Kong for setting up an individual combined science class for us. He even made separate notes for us, so that we would not be confused with the pure physics notes. My science grades have improved tremendously since joining Concept First tuition, and I am truly appreciative of that as he was able to use various methods to teach one concept and made us understand it clearly. He also injected humour into class to lift up our moods.
No matter how hard I tried to understand concepts from O Level assessment books, I ended up failing and even got recommended to drop to combined sciences. Later on, I joined Calvin’s physics tuition class and neither could I believe but my whole thought process changed and I managed to get an A2 for O Level Pure Physics, something I would not even have hoped for in the past!
The tutors are very approachable and friendly, able to share their experience of their own rather than following the answer sheet all the time.
Ang Zhi Bin
The tutors provide many useful notes and resources for the students. They are willing to answer all questions from students.
I really find the notes provided by Concept First very meaningful and that they are very detailed in terms of clarity and information. Personally, I find Mr Kong very entertaining and jovial during lessons as he finds ways to make lessons more enjoyable and fun to understand, and it is really not boring to attend his lessons too. The two page notes and consolidation booklets, and lessons notes and flipping through my textbook. Through Mr Kong’s lessons, I improved my physics grades from F9 to B3. All in all, I am very grateful and thankful for everything that Mr Kong has done for me, and I really wish that I can do you proud with my O Level results! Thank you Mr Kong!
Mr Calvin Kong is able to use multiple ways to tackle difficult physics questions, in addition to simple and clear explanations towards each question. He is a caring and concerning tutor who will reach out to all students, identify their weak areas, and guide them along such that everyone is at the same pace in class. A dedicated tutor who would sacrifice his personal time and place students as priority. Highly recommended.
Thach Pona Bandith
The classes are very engaging and very helpful for my understanding of the subject. I have struggled with Physics until finding Mr Kong.
Cho Junli Ryan
The materials provided by Mr Kong is very effective and his lessons are very fun and interesting and he made Physics enjoyable for me.
I always look forward to Mr Kong’s class as he is able to explain complicated physics problems in a simple way. I am so glad that I had joined his class as my Physics improved a lot and I am confident that I will do well in my O Levels.
Mr Calvin Kong is the best teacher I ever had. He is dedicated and constantly striving to help his students achieve their very best, crafting excellent learning resources such as the 2-page summary sheet and many useful practice questions. I would highly recommend his class to anyone who is struggling with Physics but still desire an A1!
It is undeniable that he will give his best to his students all the time. From staying back after class, to upgrading of facilities, to improving his teaching methods, he had done it all. He is an approachable and candid teacher who will extend an arm to whoever needs it. From a student’s point of view, materials of his are much more useful than those provided by schools, and given the variety of organised and well-planned resources, they are designed to suit everyone.
The tutors’ notes are detailed and organised, providing for effective revision. Their lessons are also fun and interesting, often telling jokes but still staying true to teaching. The worksheets given are also effective in challenging the mind, allowing the students to learn something. 100% would recommend.

I learnt about Calvin Kong’s Physics Tuition classes through seeing his centre’s profile on Facebook. I spoke to him over the phone for a few times. My impression of him was a confident teacher. He is not the type to demoralise students despite my son’s poor grades and only joining him in June. I trust that he will deliver at the end of the day. Looking forward to receiving my son’s results.
Anna Bella Ang
Before joining Mr Calvin Kong’s class, all I did to prepare for my Physics examinations was just memorising of formulae without much understanding of the concepts at all. Thanks to Mr Kong’s patience and clear explanation of the topics, I have undoubtedly improved in my grades through getting the concepts right.

Helen, parent of Samuel Ong
I chanced upon Calvin’s website while looking for science tuition for my son when he was in Sec 2. As Calvin only offered Tuition classes for Upper Sec, I had arranged for him to do one-to-one tuition for a few selected topics which my son was weak in. At that time, my son commented that Calvin’s explanation was very clear and he could understand. My son only managed to join Calvin’s tuition class in March this year. I am glad to say that he had gained more confidence in Physics and I am sure that he will be able to perform well in the coming o levels. Thank you for your guidance and I will definitely recommend Calvin Kong Physics Tuition to any parents looking for an effective tuition class for their kids!
I only joined this tuition centre for a few months before my ‘o’ levels as I was not achieving the grades I wanted to and started panicking. Despite such a short time span, the teachers were still willing to take me in and support me on this journey. I was given a lot of practice papers which increased my exposure to different questions. The teachers will also refresh the previously taught topics with us and provide intensive revision at the topics. The summary notes provided for us is extremely useful and easy to understand. I was able to revise the day before the ‘o’ levels examination and walked into the exam hall with confidence. The teacher will also make an effort to regularly bring the topics taught in class to real life through examples, allowing us to better understand the concepts. The lessons were very engaging and I was able to benefit from it greatly.

The lessons have been extremely informative and enjoyable. The tutors would never give up on any student and would consistently motivate us to strive for the best. Furthermore, during lessons, there is an absence of a gap between the teacher and student because they always go out of the way to bridge that awkwardness/gap, to ensure that each one of us would learn in the most efficient way possible. Their expertise and passion could be seen when they sometimes go out of the way to explain to us various formulas, to allow us to better understand it. Thank you for making these lessons informative and enjoyable.
