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.
— Praahthana, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School
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.

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.
Wayne Wang, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School
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!
Phoebe Tan, Fairfield Methodist School Secondary School
I had a very good time at physics first tuition. 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.

The resources he provides for us are excellent as well, notably the two page summaries, which played a big role in my physics revision. Through his teaching, my grades in physics improved greatly.

— Jin Hong Jun, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

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 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.

— Joachim, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

I personally liked the material such as the summary as I feel that it is complete and clear. The tuition centers also allows students to study at the tuition center during examination periods.

Mr Kong has been a very helpful teacher for the past year. His lessons are engaging, his notes are easy to understand and he is able to explain and break down very complicated concepts using everyday examples or simplified concepts. During lesson, Mr Kong 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.

— Nathaniel Tong, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

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.

— Michael, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

The notes provided were extremely helpful and easy to understand, even for someone like me who is weak in physics. A lot of work had been put into them to make them as beneficial as possible as well. Lessons were always enjoyable, due to Mr Kong’s jovial personality and sue of different objects to demonstrate different concepts. The practical workshops were also extremely helpful at revising and going through the different methods of experimentation. Mr Kong is very patient and takes time and effort to explain things, going the extra mile to stay back after lessons to answer questions

— Jac Ng, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

Mr Kong has dramatically improved not just my Physics results, but my understanding and interest for the subject. His lessons are very well thought through and very effective, tackling a sufficient and comfortable workload while still covering a substantial amount of content. The material that he provides is also incredibly fleshed-out and paired with his great teaching, is sure to help improve anyone’s Physics understanding. Not only that, but Mr Kong also makes an effort to engage with his students and make lessons interesting whether be it through some magic tricks or with his many jokes! Thank you Mr Kong!

— Kyler Ito, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

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. Overall, he is an excellent teacher!

— Joshlyn Looi, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

Mr Kong has good mastery of the subject, and his teaching style has indeed made me understand and like Physics so much more. He is one of the best Physics Teacher I have met who knows how to teach the concepts effectively, not only to prepare us for our exams but also to promote critical thinking in real life. His lessons are enjoyable, and he is very helpful and approachable. Thank you!

— Lim Cheyn Tong, Fuchun Secondary School

I definitely benefited greatly from Mr Kong’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. Before I joined Mr Kong’s class, I was on the verge of giving up on Physics as I considered it 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.

— Tham Yong Hsien, Fuhua Secondary School

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 he would always ensure that we understood each topic completely before moving on by showing us experiments and showing us examples to help us visualise.

— Jolene Yin, Fuhua Secondary School

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. Mr Kong teaching is easy to understand and he makes physics way more interesting with his props and storytelling. Unlike my previous physics tuition, Concept First provides the best materials for every student. The one 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.

— Chew Hong Yu, Fuhua Secondary School

Initially before coming to Mr Kong’s class 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. Mr Kong makes learning physics fun and I always look forward to coming to his 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, Mr Kong goes at a steady pace and ensures that we students understand before moving on. He also takes time to answer my questions painstakingly. While there are some tuition centres that value profit over students, I can say that Mr Kong values his students more. His concise notes have played an important role in my revision and 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.

— Janelle Ling, Fuhua Secondary

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.

— Don Ong, Fuhua Secondary School

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.

— Selicia Tan, Fuhua Secondary School

Good teaching skills! My physics results improved tremendously after attending tuition. Explanation of concepts and materials given are also very good!

— Goh Jing Wei, Fuhua Secondary School

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.

— Loh Jia Ying, Fuhua Secondary School

Although I have only been in the class 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.

— Damien Wee, Gan Eng Seng School

Physics was initially one of my worst subjects. After joining Mr Kong’s lessons, I had a new-found passion for physics. His explanations were clear and concise and helped me have a greater understanding of the subject of physics. With his help, physics became one of my better subjects and I improved greatly. Mr Kong is also 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.

— Joanne Su, Gan Eng Seng School

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 Mr Kong has been effective in teaching and I trust that my O’s will be significantly better. Thank you Mr Kong!

— Josiah Low, Gan Eng Seng School

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.

— Teo Li Juan, Gan Eng Seng School

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.

— Selina Lee, Gan Eng Seng School

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.

— Seetha, Gan Eng Seng School

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.
