Coming from the Integrated Programme in secondary school and not having to take the O Levels led me to assume I could understand Physics by simply listening in class and reading notes. I did okay in my examinations, just to get by.
But upon entering JC, I realised the gameplay was far different. Using the methods from secondary school caused me a Fail in my first JC physics test. At that instant, I realised how weak my foundation was. I was so scared because of how much more effort I needed to put in to strengthened my secondary school content, yet at the same time, new and more difficult topics were coming my way. These were on top of my already busy JC curriculum and workload.
My mum was looking for tuition centres to save my grades when she came across Kungfu Physics on the internet and asked me to attend a trial class. On the day of the trial, Mr Tan went through Work, Energy, Power, a topic taught in secondary school and revisited in JC. Within that lesson, I patched up all my learning gaps for the topic and gained confidence and knowledge to tackle any other WEP problems.
Of course, continuing the journey with Mr Tan, my grades improved. With Mr Tan’s clear and precise teaching, picking out exactly the mistakes we would make, and patiently going through the tough concepts that our school teachers often brush through due to the lack of time, I’m starting to feel more confident in talking physics problems and more interested in solving my tutorials/extra physics question. I believe that this confidence & interest is what brought me an ‘A’ in my promotional exams. Thank you Mr Tan
