Physics Tuition

At Path Finder Tuition, we focus on helping students to achieve a good
understanding of Physics through activities, practices and videos to teach and
show the concept applied in the practical world. The Physics syllabus consists
of several topics and we aim to break it down to consumable pieces for our students
to grasp and apply in the examinations. We specialise in JC H2 physics and O level physics tuition classes

Learning Physics at the ‘O’ / ‘N’ level exposes students to the occurrences in the physical world around them. The syllabus aims to equip students with the knowledge to explain and account for events that occur in the real world in a qualitative and quantitative manner.

Sign Up For JC H2 Physics Tuition

As an extension to the ‘O’ Level syllabus,  our ‘A’ Level JC H2 Physics classes aims to deepen the understanding of the physical world around us through the introduction of advanced content knowledge and greater appreciation of the subject. Students will learn to analyse relationship between quantities with the use of equation or formulae.

O Level Physics Tuition

Learning Physics at the Secondary level equips students with the knowledge to explain and account for events that occur in the real world in a qualitative and quantitative manner, through the use of theories, formulas and calculations.

A total of 5 branches of Physics is taught in the ‘O’ level syllabus. Of which, 4 are covered under the Combined Science ‘N’ level syllabus.

General Physics

Topics covered includes physical measurements, describing and explaining changes in motion in terms of force and energy. This forms the foundation of the remaining topics in Physics.

Thermal Physics

The concept of heat and how it can flow between objects with different temperatures is explained in this part of Physics. Expanding further in the Pure Physics syllabus, students would also learn how to quantify the energy transferred when temperature changes or state changes.

Waves

Understanding how periodic motion can be caused by oscillating sources. Students will learn to describe and explain daily phenomena such as water waves and the production of sound through vibrating sources. For the ‘O’ level syllabus, the ray model of light and its application would also be introduced.

Electricity and its Application

The understanding of the accumulation of charge, the basic quantities used to describe an electrical circuit and how to measure them would be introduced. Students will learn to quantify the energy needed for an appliance to work and learn the possible arrangement in the circuit with or without safety features.

Magnetism and
Electromagnetism (‘O’ level only)

The relationship between Magnetism and Electricity would be discussed in this branch of Physics. The generation of electricity through induction would only be discussed in the Pure Physics syllabus. At ‘O’ level, the use of formulas to make quantitative calculations involving Magnetism is not expected. However, students should be able to describe the factors that could affect the strength of the magnetic field created by electricity and its effect.

How do we come in?

Each Physics lesson will be taught with the following key areas of focus 

Key Highlights of the Lesson

Knowledge Acquisition

Information related to topic of interest is delivered in the class with a mixture of practice questions in between to grasp basic understanding of each topic.

Knowledge Application

Concepts taught would be discuss during the class in the form of pictures/videos to spark greater interest in the topic involved.

Knowledge
Mastery

We conduct bi-monthly revision of past topics with a summary of key concepts and revision practices.

JC H2 Physics Tuition

Our “A” level physics tuition classes focuses on deeper content knowledge, a higher level of critical thinking and the ability to analyse relationships between quantities with the use of equations or formulae. With the addition of Modern physics, students can gain advanced knowledge and the ability to relate physics to the physical world around them and in everyday life even the laws of Physics or life of science could not explain.

Measurement

This is the foundation of Physics. Students will learn to appreciate the use of uncertainties in physical measurements and be able to make approximation in real life.

Newtonian Mechanics

This includes an explanation of motion in topics such as Kinematics, Dynamics and Energy. The basic concepts are further extended to understand objects in Circular Motion and the effect of Gravitational Field on masses.

Thermal Physics

Thermal physics include the introduction of absolute temperature scale and the kinetic theory of ideal gases, which is branched out into engineering application using the 1st law of Thermodynamics. At the end of this part, students should be able to appreciate how thermal energy is utilised in real-life application such as engine and refrigeration.

Oscillation and Waves

This section touches on the study of Simple Harmonic Motion as an example of Mechanical Oscillation. Advanced knowledge on the energy of waves and the effect due to the interaction of several waves through the principle of superposition is also introduced.

Electricity and Magnetism

A quantitative approach to analysing electrical circuits, forces due to magnetic field and the production of electrical energy through electromagnetic induction is introduced in this part. This is an extension to what was taught previously in Secondary school, where more formulae are introduced.

Modern Physics

The study of Quantum and Nuclear Physics would form the final section of Physics at the ‘A’ Level. Students would be learning an alternative theory to explain the behaviour of light through the use of the Photoelectric effect experiment. Nuclear Physics, on the other hand, provides a glimpse of how nuclear fusion and fission processes release energy which can be applied and vital to the energy production of an electrical power plant.

How Do We Come In?

The aim of this course in Path Finder is to build the analytical skill required to tackle real-life applications questions expected of students at the ‘A’ Level.

Key Highlights of our Physics Classes

Simplification Of Content

As the contents are abstract, the lessons are structured to simplify the concepts and teachings with relevant examples for ease of understanding.

Qualitative Answering Technique

The know-how to tackling explanation questions would be explained with a comprehensive structure, breaking them down with clear pointers to follow.

Detailed Summary Notes

Content is being summarised to give the key ideas in each chapter. Notes will also include worked example with a step-by-step guide to enhance understanding of each lesson.
