92% For Prelims, A1 For O-Levels

"My son has been struggling with Physics since Sec 3.

At a point, he told me he would like to give up Physics as he can't cope with it. I understood his difficulties and persuaded him to stay on and I will get him a tutor.

I googled the websites and approached a few top Physics tutors. However, they were not able to meet my criteria.

Finally, I chanced upon Gideon Goh's website and found that his write-ups and articles on Physics tuition got my attention.

Within 3 months of tuition, Wai Kin fell in love with Physics and showed tremendous improvement. In less than nine months, he went from C5 to A1 in his recent O-level Physics Paper.

I would like to thank Mr. Goh for his dedication and diligent coaching that my son is able to understand the concepts of Physics well.

Kudos, Mr. Goh. I sincerely wish you great success in your quest to nurture more students under your dedicated coaching.

Once again, Mr. Goh, thank you so much for coaching Wai Kin so well in his physics. He really loves to attend your tuition and rest assure that if anyone requires Physics tuition, I will not hesitate to recommend your Physics tuition service.

Wishing great success in your teaching."

"I Just Could Not Believe It !"

"My daughter initially thought that she would be able to manage her Physics subject without any tuition. She tried hard but at the end of Sec.3, her C5 result had caused me to be worried and I told her that she should get help from a Physics tuition teacher. She was hesitant because she had bad experiences with class at tuition centre where the teacher usually cannot address her needs due to the large group of students. So I suggested private tuition. She agreed.

Now I am faced with a problem. I heard many stories of challenging and bad experiences looking for private tutor via a third party. But no one that I knew had any recommendation for a Physics tutor. Left with no choice I searched the internet, googled and started calling tutor by tutor, although I did not like the idea of doing it this way because to me it is like a gamble or trying my luck, which I do not believe.

The searches were challenging due to limited number of Physics tutors available as compared to Maths or Chemistry tutors.

Then I bumped into Mr. Gideon Goh's site. The first thing that I noticed was his long testimony of his teaching career and his photograph. These 2 things allowed me to know more about his personality as a teacher. Of course anyone could write anything. So I called him and talked and asked many things and felt that I should let my daughter have one trial lesson before really committing a decision.

After the trial lesson, I asked my daughter her feedback and surprisingly, she said she liked the way Mr. Goh taught as it allowed her to understand many things that her school teacher did not explained. She told me that she would like to continue the tuition with Mr. Goh but as she was a shy person she told me she would prefer the lesson within a group and not one to one. Thankfully, a few more Sec.4 students joined in the group but Mr. Goh kept the group small so that it was very conducive for lesson. She started her tuition in Dec’11 and by April’12, Sec.4 first term, I saw her grade improved although it was not dramatically.

Still I am grateful as I know she was weak in her Physics and I would be quite satisfied if she just passed the subject. Meanwhile, Mr. Goh continued motivating her to study harder and evoke her understanding of the concepts. He would always open his door for my daughter or any of his students who need to come earlier when they need extra clarifications.

Each time the lesson over, my daughter always gave me a very positive feedback about her tuition, be it the lesson or how she interact with the other students. Mr. Goh was such a dedicated teacher and would not hesitate to coach the group extra lessons when the O level exam is approaching. He was really motivated by his love for teaching and wanted his students to be successful.

I knew my daughter’s Physics grade has improved even before her O-level result was released. But when she told me she got A2 for her Physics, I just could not believe it! I kept reminding her that she could not achieve it without Mr. Goh’s coaching. She said she knew it and I am glad that she has personally expressed her gratitude to him.

I certainly was glad that I made the right decision in engaging Mr. Gideon Goh as my daughter’s tutor. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs a Physics tutor's help.

Thank You , Mr. Goh.

Sincerely yours,
Lily Soon

"Before I came to Mr. Gideon Goh for desperate help in Physics, I was ready to disregard Physics and just cross my fingers, hoping that I'd miraculously pass it for every test and examination.

However, since going to Mr. Goh for tuition, my grades have definitely improved by leaps and bounds.

More importantly, Mr. Goh teaches in a way that cultivates passion in me for Physics. He ensures that I understand the basic concepts before moving on, and is always willing to sacrifice time before/after lesson to provide extra help for me.

It is without doubt that I owe my A2 for Physics to Mr. Goh :)

Thanks Mr. Goh !"

3 Good Friends, 3 O-level Physics Distinctions

Yasmin, Sabrina and Nurul enjoying celebratory lunch with Mr. Gideon Goh at Manhatten Fish Market (Whitesands)

"Mr. Goh has helped me make TREMENDOUS improvements in physics! I remember the first time when I came in for his lessons in Sec 4, I had neither confidence nor interest in physics because I failed all my physics exams in Sec 3, getting D7s.

I was also determined to change from pure physics to combined science in Sec 4. However, after being in Mr. Goh's class for about 2 months, I managed to get an A1 for my first pure physics diagnostics test ! (scroll further down to see Nurul's mum's testimonial)

Since then, I have never failed any physics exams and finally got my A2 for pure physics at the O Levels. Mr. Goh has really helped me gain a lot of confidence with his motivating words every lesson and with that, I managed to gain interest in doing physics too. Currently, I am considering to continue with H2 Physics in JC.

 THANK YOU MR. GOH !"

“Learning and grasping the concepts of Physics has never been easy in school, even though the interest in the subject is there. I have come to learn that the teachers especially, play a huge role in instilling interest and passion for the subject in the students. Using the right teaching technique is equally important as well.

 

That’s exactly what Mr. Gideon Goh has succeeded in. After joining Mr. Goh’s Physics class, understanding and applying the concepts are definitely easier. His simple yet accurate explanations helped me to fully grasp all the Physics concepts and eventually improve my grades from a fail to an A2.

 

Not to mention, his quirky, bubbly and hilarious personality is definitely a plus point. I am sincerely grateful to Mr. Goh for helping me to make a huge improvement in my Physics grade.”

From Poor In Physics to A2 and B3

Jia Ling and Wei Si enjoying celebratory lunch with Mr. Gideon Goh at Manhatten Fish Market (Whitesands)

"I dare not even think of getting an A for Physics as it was the bane of all my subjects in O-Levels.

However, Physics became easier to handle and more relatable after attending Mr. Goh's lessons.

Surprisingly, even an F9 Physics student like me can actually score an A2 for O-Levels.

He is a recommendable tutor, who has helped and made Physics enjoyable for me.

Thank you Mr. Goh, really appreciate all your effort, it has paid off !"

A Mother's Thankful Testimonial

"Gideon has helped my son, Nat, improve in Physics amazingly over the past 2 years under his tutorship.

Nat's come a long way from initially failing Physics in Sec 2 to achieving an A2 grade for his 'O' Level.

Gideon's guidance and effective teaching method has helped Nat to grasp the subject much better. When a lot is riding on 'O' level results, you have to be sure that the final outcome will be successful and thus I can't thank Gideon enough for assisting us in getting where Nat is today."

Comb. Sc. Boy Went From F9 To A2 in 1 Month

"AWE-INSPIRING! This is how I would have described Mr. Gideon Goh. Unlike many other Physics teachers, he is able to explain every logic behind each formula with his infinite innovative, real-life demonstrations.

For example, a floating toy car or a dollar coin to explain what exactly is inertia! On top of that, he is able to decipher "Refractive Index" for confused students like us, as most Physics teachers will refer to it as a mere "NUMBER", which is of course not true!

In terms of computer language, Mr. Goh is like a COMPRESSOR; he's able to convert major topics like "Magnetism" or "Light" into 4 simple page notes and the result is evident.

The evidence of his ability ?

Within a month, my grades went from ...

School Prelim 2 : F9 for Physics

2012 GCE 'O' Level : A2 for Comb. Sc. (see photo above)

Thank you Mr. Goh."

Using Demos To Help Her Go From C6 To A2

"Before Mr. Gideon Goh was my Physics tuition teacher, I struggled to keep up with topics in school and had difficulty understanding the subject.

Under the guidance of Mr. Goh, I was able to clear my doubts as he went through the topics with clear explanation, and from time to time, the use of experiments to help me understand a theory better.

I was able to attain an A2 grade for my ‘O’ level examinations which I thought would be physically impossible considering that I scored a C6 for my prelim examination.

Thank you Mr. Goh for teaching me and helping me get my distinction in Physics. I wish you all the best and may you continue to help other students excel in Physics."

IP Student Gets A1

"Ever since I started Pure Physics in Secondary Three, I had trouble grasping the key concepts of the subject and many a time resorted to guessing answers during the examinations.

I usually averaged around a B3-B4 grade. However, after joining Mr. Gideon Goh’s classes in April when I was in Secondary Four, my knowledge of and interest in the subject has steadily increased.

Not only is Mr. Goh a good teacher, he also presents the key concepts in a unique way, which makes learning all the more fun.

Thanks to all his effort and help, I was so happy to achieve an A1 for my end of year examinations, while clearly understanding the content I needed to know.

Trust in Mr. Goh and all roads lead to an A1 !"

From B4 To A1 in 3 Lessons

(The Nicholas Kow Story)

"I got to know Mr. Gideon Goh from my good friend Jia Ru (see Jia Ru's testimonial below).

Before I got to know Mr. Goh, I got a B4 for my school's Prelim 2 exams.

I only had 3 tuition sessions with Mr. Goh and my O-level Pure Physics result was an A1.

Thank you Mr. Goh for helping me attain the A1 for my Physics."

Nicholas Kow

"Just after ONE lesson of Physics tuition with Mr. Gideon Goh, I can already hear from my son the vital benefits of the tuition. He complained why hasn't he known Mr. Goh earlier.

In addition, I felt that my son had seen the light in Physics, not only as an exam-based subject, but how things worked in real life and how important Physics is in our daily living. Moreover, my son reassured me that his understanding for Physics is now so much stronger and clearer, after the few lessons with Mr. Goh.

Thank you Mr. Goh for helping my son in attaining the A1 for O-level Physics, and for arousing his interest in this subject."

Breaking The A-Grade Barrier

"Among the many subjects that I took for my O-levels, Physics was the one subject that seemed to have an invisible barrier preventing me from getting an A-grade. That was until I engaged the services of Mr. Gideon Goh as my personal Physics tutor.

My mum found Mr. Goh through the Internet at his website www.SingaporePhysicsTutor.com in early July 2010. In the short span of the few months that Mr. Goh tutored me, I found that I understood the concepts behind the various Physics laws and principles more clearly. Mr. Goh is very detailed and diligent in explaining the Physics concepts to me, ensuring that I understood them well so that when it comes to applying them to the O-level questions, I will be able to solve them correctly and confidently.

I would like to thank Mr. Goh for helping me "break" the invisible barrier that has prevented me from getting an A-grade for my Physics. I managed to get an A1 for my school's prelims and an A2 for the GCE 2010 O-level Physics paper.

I wish Mr. Goh great succes in his quest to help students in Singapore to do well for their O-level Physics."
