# JC Physics Tuition | H1 Physics | H2 Physics

JC Physics Tuition at APM Tuition is designed to help students manage and adjust to the intensity of a whole new level of Physics. By incorporating a higher level of mathematical rigour, our H1 and H2 Physics lessons are unique and powerful with curriculums that cover relevant topics and equip the students with the ability to map knowledge of different topics to excel in examination conditions.

With a small class size, a maximum of 8, we ensure that every student receives our dedicated attention. We champion consistency and active learning in students, equipping them with the skills and wits to carve out their edge in the subject and eventually Ace the Level Examination.

JC Physics Tuition at APM is customized to cater to different students’ needs. Students will receive tutorials aligned with their school syllabus to ensure a complete reinforcement of concepts and ample practice. Our notes, tutorials and practice papers are constantly updated with current questions to ensure students are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge. Each set of notes and tutorials helps students develop fundamental techniques to solve routine questions, apply complex concepts and hone critical reasoning skills for tackling nonroutine problems that include real-world contexts.

Practice tests and mock practice papers that mirror actual examination conditions help give students the practice and confidence needed to ace their examinations. Revision packages are provided to help students consolidate their knowledge, review the typical questions for each topic and gain awareness to avoid and correct common mistakes through error analysis practices.

Hi Lewis, this is Edwin Goh, Elliot’s father. Elliot completed his Physics paper yesterday and felt he did fine. Grades aside, I would like to thank you for guiding Elliot the past 1.5 years. He has certainly gained tremendous confidence in Physics, and even found the subject interesting! We will call upon you again if assistance is needed. Meanwhile, I wish you all the best. Cheers!
