Kungfu Physics is Singapore’s unique Physics Tuition Centre providing IP Physics tuition, O Level Physics Tuition and JC Level Physics Tuition. The centre designs its unique curriculum and programmes by integrating methods proven by researches on high performing children and ‘secrets’ used by Top O-Level/IP/JCs. We equip our students with strong conceptual foundation, knowledge, skillsets required to attain stellar results as well as inspire them to see the world with new perspectives and understanding.

In Kungfu Physics, all lessons are conducted by Mr Gabriel Tan, the founder who has taught in Raffles JC (Raffles Institution) in both the JC and IP Secondary level as well as Catholic High Secondary School for O-Level and IP Physics track. Coupled with his short stints in neighbourhood schools and JC, Mr Tan is skilful and able to help students from all walks of life achieve very good results in their respective examinations.

Although a group tuition, students get individual attention from Mr Tan (See testimonials) when he checks on their work, marks selected questions and answers queries during and after classes. Often do you see our students graduating with motivation and excitement about Physics and how science could improve and better peoples’ lives. Not only that, students who build new friendships across different schools benefitted from sharing their materials and learning.

The two centres are conveniently located next to Bishan MRT and Beauty World MRT stations, both with sheltered walkway linking from MRT stations to the centres. Contact us now as the pace of curriculum is fast. The longer you ponder, the more you missed your chance to get a distinction! See Class Schedule.   Or FAQs to find out more.

I have never passed a single physics test in J1 and the highest I got was an S as I could not understand the concepts taught in school but everything changed after I started to attend Mr Tan’s lessons.

Mr Tan’s lessons are interesting and he makes the concepts easy to understand. I started to attend his lessons during the November/December holiday before the start of J2 and he managed to help me understand all the concepts taught in J1 within the 2 months. He is always willing to stay back and answer your questions and he is always very patient with his students.

Ever since he started teaching me, my grades have improved by a lot. He is also very caring and is always concerned about our well being. It is very comforting to see a teacher who really cares about us even though we only see him once a week. Not only has Mr Tan helped me in achieving better grades, he has also fueled my passion for learning. Thank you Mr Tan!

Before attending Mr Tan’s lessons at Kung Fu Physics, I used to do very badly for Physics. I remembered that at the end of Year 3, I scored only 17/80 for my SA2 Paper 2 and my overall grade for physics was merely 45%. It was my worst subject at that point of time. However, after attending Mr Tan’s lessons, I found myself being able to grasp the concepts more easily as his explanations were very clear. I remembered that he would always check up on my work and be shocked at how ignorant I was, but yet, he would still patiently guide me through any confusion that I had about the concept. Despite being frustrated at Physics at first, I started to develop an interest towards Physics and found it more interesting as I attended more lessons. Eventually, at the end of Year 4, Physics turned from my worst subject to my best subject, as I obtained a surprising score of 71% for both my overall grade and my SA2 Paper. Not only that, Physics had also turned into my favourite subject as I no longer found it bothersome to do the papers. Overall, Mr Tan’s lessons have made a big difference in my academic performance in Physics as he teaches differently from the other ordinary teachers. He teaches according to one’s ability, which I believe is why I am able to excel in Physics after going through many of his lessons. Thank you Mr Tan for the tremendous help you’ve given me.I look forward to attending your JC Class next year! Sijun, VSIP, VJC

Our Philosophy

At Kung Fu Physics, we go beyond learning physics for exams. We aim to show students how physics is applicable for life. We help students see the how physics can be applied to many fields of work, be it in sports, engineering, economics, medical equipment and even in leadership, management and cooking. Students are motivated and excited to see how the concepts apply to life and their future careers.
