I started Secondary 3 with a strong passion for Physics. However, I could not score well no matter how hard I studied and I was very worried about my Physics grade. My mother saw an advertisement for Concept First and she asked me to give it a try. In the first lesson, I was surprised that I could understand the Physics concepts for the first time! When I got the 2 page summary notes, I was amazed as I had never seen any tuition that provides such detailed summary notes, and the most I’ve seen is paraphrased notes from the textbook. During Mr Kong’s lessons, I learnt the simpler way to remember Physics concepts, and it has really benefited me. I managed to go from an F9 in Secondary 3 to achieving a B4 in my Secondary 4 prelims.

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.

I have joined this tuition for almost 2 years and I used to get F9 for my Physics but 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 Calvin Kong is engaging and funny as a teacher, giving comprehensive explanations and useful notes.
— Joseph Lim, Queensway Secondary School
Before joining Concept First, I was very lost about Physics and I did not know how to help myself. I failed practically all my class tests and even my Sec 3 EOYs. I did look for my school teacher for help, and though I did improve, it wasn’t as quick as I wanted it to be. However, only 1 week after joining Concept First and studying the precious notes given to me, I surprisingly scored an A1 in a class test on waves and DC circuits. Till this day, that memory lives vividly in my mind. Slowly, I tightened up my understanding of every topic with the help of the teachers and before I knew it, I was easily scoring A1 for class tests and major exams. Overall, Concept First has been impactful in my O Level journey and I have absolutely no regrets joining this tuition centre.

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.
— Liu Kun Lang, Queensway Secondary School
I joined this tuition in the middle of the year last year and have improved. The teacher always goes through every question and concept in detail and I feel that it is very easy to understand. He always gives us extra practice at the end of the notes for each topic for us to go home to do and I feel that it helps us to understand each topic better since we have extra practice. During lessons, he would walk around to help us clear any doubts and he would make small talk, asking us about school and others. He also jokes a lot, which makes class more fun. He also uses different materials in lessons to make lessons more interesting and bearable.
— Maegan Lee, Queensway Secondary School
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.
— Mathu, Queensway Secondary School
Mr Kong’s classes have been very engaging as he tries to liven up the boring atmosphere by showing us interesting videos or apparatuses he has to demonstrate the idea that he is teaching. I find this teaching method very useful as it enables me to understand the concept better rather than just memorising the theory. He finds many different types of questions for students to attempt which broadens our exposure to different questions. He always plans his lessons well and ensures that there is an ample amount of time to practice and revise for the upcoming major exams. I highly recommend coming to Concept First if you find physics to be a challenge or if you need someone that is able to pace you better for your exams.
— Ng Song En, Queensway Secondary School
I have been in Concept First for pure Physics since the start of Secondary 3. Before joining, I struggled with answering techniques and phrasing when doing Physics papers. However, under the guidance of the tutors, I picked up answering skills and sentence structures to answer the question requirements to make sure the answer is not too vague. Apart from the theory paper, the teachers also use a variety of unique instruments and equipment to showcase and prove theories to students. This not only enhances the students who are visual learners but it broadens every student’s perspective of Physics and understanding of the topic. Through this and hard work, I managed to improve to a B3/A2.

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.
— Wesley Ong, Queensway Secondary School
The tutors are able to explain challenging Physics concepts in a simple and engaging manner by using analogies, experiments and drawings. They also challenge us to apply the concepts we have learnt to explain everyday observations, which presents Physics in a new light and makes the learning process far more enjoyable. Additionally, Mr Kong is friendly and dedicated — he ensures that every student can keep up with the lesson pace, whether it is through 1-1 consultations, his WhatsApp helpline or just walking around the class to check in on students.
— Koay Tze Erhn, Raffles Girls’ School
Concept First’s lessons are very enriching and interesting, and Mr Kong takes the extra mile to explain concepts which used to sound foreign to me. I became much more confident in Physics after joining his lessons. Even though I am in the IP Stream, his lessons are still very relevant to my syllabus, and in fact, at a faster pace than my lessons in school. This allows me to stay ahead in the syllabus and this headstart is essential for me to fully digest the concepts and score well for exams. Thank you so much Mr Kong for your patience and consistent guidance in my 2 years learning Physics from you!
— Nicole Lim, Raffles Girls’ School
Concept First’s lessons are not only engaging but very effective as well. The centre’s notes are very comprehensive and I was able to do all my revision without using school notes. They are especially helpful when you cannot keep up with the pace of school lessons. Mr Kong was approachable and answered all my questions patiently regardless of how simple they may be. They are also very dedicated to the students’ well-being, using different ways to motivate us such as rewards for doing well in tests. The centre’s effectiveness definitely showed when my results shot up from C5 to A1 for my final examinations. Thank you Concept First!
— Raisha Aulia, Raffles Girls’ School
I started off as someone who was not confident and did not like Physics as a whole. I wouldn’t look forward to Physics classes. But after joining Concept First, I was able to appreciate Physics not only as a subject for school but also as something that allows me to understand how the many things that we interact with in our daily lives work. The teachers here do more than just conveying the needed knowledge to students, but also have 1 to 1 consultations in class, Zoom, WhatsApp, to ensure that we understand everything.
— Dylan Tan, Raffles Institution
Mr Kong is a very friendly and approachable teacher, and he makes effort to know more about his students in order to tailor his teaching to their needs. He relates concepts to real life examples to make them easier to grasp. Also, with many props and prizes, he makes lessons more engaging and motivates us to do well.
— Allegra Tan, River Valley High School
The class is always engaging and Mr Kong is extremely approachable. That makes it easier to ask questions if we have any so that we don’t go home feeling confused. The lesson materials given are very helpful as it contains the summarised content and important points. They are only 2 pages long per chapter, making it easier to read and revise compared to school notes that come in thick stacks with many words. Learning Physics here is definitely more enjoyable than learning in school.
— Bryna Lee, River Valley High School
Mr Calvin Kong is a caring and fun teacher who is also easy to approach. After attending Concept First’s 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 🙂
— Chloe Koh, River Valley High School
Concept First’s lessons have been interesting and really easy to follow! Before joining Concept First, I felt that Physics was a really difficult subject to understand and apply in exams. However, after joining Concept First, I was able to develop a strong interest in learning Physics and was able to grasp the various concepts more easily. I was also able to clear my doubts in class, which made me feel more confident in tackling Physics questions. I really enjoyed the classes here, thank you Concept First!!
— Crystal Lai, River Valley High School
Mr Kong is patient in answering questions and uses unique analogies to ensure concepts are well understood. He teaches very efficiently and is ahead of schedule so he can leave more time for revision. I am relieved that Mr Kong could salvage my grades.
— Shania Tan, River Valley High School
Mr Kong is a very approachable teacher who does not hesitate to offer his guidance when we do not understand certain Physics problems. When explaining the answers, he breaks it down to the key points and is able to show the connection between them. He always makes lesson very engaging and makes learning Physics much more fun than it is in school. The Summary sheet provided is very succinct and useful in helping me understand better the abstract Physics concepts.
