Edgefield Secondary School

Attending Concept First’s lessons have made me realise that Physics could be manageable for me. I started understanding the topics more by doing the weekly set questions (which were slightly harder than the ones set by schools). The notes are very concise and easy to refer to. Although I attended the lessons online, it was still easy to understand the teaching with the detailed explanations and working.

Fairfield_Anita Handojo

Mr Calvin Kong truly has a talent for teaching. Topics that completely baffled me in school are made so simple. The classes have turned the bane of my existence into my very favourite subject. 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. Concept First also helps me to maximise my effort and time. They give out a consolidation book in which I am guided in making notes, as well as a convenient cheat sheet to keep on hand.

— Anita Handojo, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School


I had a very good time at Concept First tuition. It has improved my Physics tremendously. I also learnt to apply my Physics to the real world, enabling me to understand certain concepts more accurately, and 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.

Fairfield_Gwendalene Ionna

Before joining Concept First, I had hated Physics with a burning passion throughout my entire Secondary 3 life. I never knew what was going on during Physics lessons. In May of Secondary 4, I decided to join Concept First as I felt like I had nothing else to lose and I was also convinced by the reviews on the website. Although I joined the centre during the circuit breaker period, it did not affect the lessons’ effectiveness and with Mr Kong’s never-ending help, I finally felt like I was understanding Physics. Not only are the notes concise and to the point, but the lessons are engaging and Mr Kong always goes the extra mile to make Physics easier to learn. The practical workshops were also quite helpful and made me feel less lost during practicals in school. Thank you to Mr Kong for making me appreciate Physics a little more!

— Gwendalene Ionna, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

Fairfield_Steffi Chua

Physics was never my strong subject. In Secondary 3, I struggled to keep up with my school teachers and could not even understand fundamental topics such as forces. As a result, I received a low grade for the End of Year exams. I was encouraged by my parents to attend the centre’s December Holiday Revision Classes as a last ditch effort to save my Physics grade before the gruelling Secondary 4 year. In those 4 sessions, with the help of the tutors and the helpful notes provided, I managed to achieve a stable foundation and could attempt difficult and challenging questions. This was a feat that I had never expected to achieve and thus, I joined the centre as a regular student. The centre has not only helped me to grasp the concepts of Physics, but also develop a liking for the subject, encouraging me to continue on in Junior College. Thanks Concept First!

 — Steffi Chua, Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

Fairfield Methodist Secondary School

When I first joined the centre, I was really lost regarding many of the concepts.

Fuhua_A.K.M Mehrab Hossain

I first joined Concept First for their Intensive Revision Classes after my Sec 3 exams to get a feel of the lessons. The first class had already given me a very good impression of the centre and this has never changed. I joined the classes again after my Sec 4 prelims for an extra push. I still think that the teaching style and questions are good, difficult and challenges me.

— A.K.M. Mehrab Hossain, Fuhua Secondary School

Fuhua_Chew Hong Yu

Ever since joining Concept First Physics tuition, I have a better understanding of the topics. Moreover, I can see improvements in my class tests and exams. Mr Kong’s 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

Fuhua_Don Ong

The lessons are well-planned and great! My Physics grades managed to improve from C5 to B3. The notes are also better than my school notes as it is more detailed. Without their help, I would not have understood most of the topics in Physics. However, because they 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 the teaching method! I remembered once my tutor showed us how Total Internal Reflection occurs by shining a green laser into a “diamond”. The view was spectacular.

— Don Ong, Fuhua Secondary School

Fuhua_Goh Jing Wei

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

Fuhua_Janelle Ling

Initially before coming to Concept First’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 Concept First values their students more. The 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 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

Fuhua_Loh Jia Ying

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

Fuhua_Tham Yong Hsien

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. Before I joined Concept First’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

Gan Eng Seng_Chen Hao Yang

I can refer to the one page summary while doing questions. He has a funny personality which makes the lessons much more interesting.

— Renee Ong, Hai Sing Catholic School

Hillgrove_Queena Lee

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 of Sec 4 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!

— Queena Lee, Hillgrove Secondary School

Hillgrove_Samuel Ng

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.

— Samuel Ng, Hillgrove Secondary School

Hwa Chong_Gabriel Goh

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.

— Gabriel Goh, Hwa Chong Institution

Hwa Chong_Luke Chen

Mr Kong is a very approachable and friendly tutor who is patient and detailed when explaining new or challenging concepts to students. He would never hesitate to answer queries during lesson and is willing to sacrifice time after lessons to go through students’ school test paper or worksheets to clear their doubts. Lessons are filled with miniature experiments, tons of drawings and diagrams as well as computer simulations and videos to boost students’ understanding and interest in the subject and topic. When I first joined, Physics was boring and monotonous to me and naturally, I did not perform well in school for the subject. Concept First’s notes and worksheets were able to break down concepts of topics into their simplest forms, allowing me to pick up concepts very quickly and even breeze through challenging questions. This also made Physics much more fun and exciting as I truly understood the concepts within instead of relying on memory work and regurgitation. I am truly appreciative of Mr Kong’s help in my great improvement in the subject. Thank you Mr Kong!

— Luke Chen, Hwa Chong Institution

Jurong Secondary School

Mr Kong is the best Physics teacher I have ever met (no lie). He is not just a great Physics teacher, but he can be a friend when you need it, and he gives us life advice too.

Jurong_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 Concept First’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.

— Elita Elisabeth Eso, Jurong Secondary School

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 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, Concept First’s 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, their lessons were never boring, in fact, they 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!

Before I joined Concept First, I had zero confidence in Physics. Shortly after joining, my Physics knowledge expanded. I could do questions that I couldn’t do before and this made me more confident in my Physics.

I was not doing very well for physics when I first started at Concept First and it was not one of my favourite subjects. However, through the lively and interactive lessons, I developed an interest in physics. My grades improved tremendously as well. Mr Kong goes the extra mile to ensure that we have adequate materials to achieve our best potential. He is the best physics teacher anyone could ask for!

Thank you for all the time you have spent on teaching me. It 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!

I have benefitted and improved a lot after joining this class. 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.

Concept First reinvigorated my passion for Physics after having lost it. Despite having been with them 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 me would be not joining their class sooner.

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.

Concept First Physics is a great learning centre and has helped me boost my confidence when doing Physics! The lesson materials are very understandable and caters to our learning demands. I’ve used them widely in my revision for my End of Year exams and O Levels as well!
