Mr Sim has made physics a lot clearer for me and I actually find it to be quite enjoyable thanks to him! He always challenges us by giving us higher order questions and this has helped to expose me to a variety of questions. The notes provided are also very concise and useful for exam revision. I would definitely recommend The Physics Cafe to my friends because I feel that I have personally benefitted and they can too.

I joined The Physics Cafe in November in J1. At that time, I didn't really understand the concepts and just did questions by using a formula which I thought would be appropriate. Even for topics like kinematics, which we have done since Sec 3, I didn't understand what I was supposed to do and when to apply the correct formula. I joined the class for the November revision lesson for all J1 topics and I was really thankful that I did because I learnt so much from the few weeks of lesson and gained more confidence in doing physics questions. In J2, during my first physics lecture, that was probably the first time that I understood what was going on. I also always failed the short quizzes that were given in school but in J2, I started to pass them. Besides the teaching aspect, The Physics Cafe also has many new facilities such as shuttle bus services to certain bus interchanges, watching a lesson video if that particular lesson was missed and many more. I'm glad that I joined The Physics Cafe when I did and I'm sure that other people would have benefited from this just as much as I have.

I have definitely improved in terms of confidence and logical based skills for all the Physics papers I've sit ever since. Even when I'm not in my best state of mind or have not studied fully, I will still be able to attain a reasonable result because the concepts are delivered so clearly that it can be easily understood and remembered. The questions given helped to build on the concepts and it really took lesser time to solve those questions during the actual exams because of all the shortest techniques being taught. I love how our welfare is so well taken care of and the learning experience is maximised so as to ensure tuition can be fun and interesting too unlike the usual thought that tuition is boring and time-consuming. Every minute matters to the tuition centre and the students have definitely benefitted from that because we take the minimum time to learn all the concepts and we are trained to digest and unpack information really quickly, I love it. I feel that I can rely on the tuition centre entirely for Physics and can thus put aside so much more time on my other weaker subjects and I am really glad at this advantage I have over my schoolmates. I am now ever more prepared to get that highly sought after A for A levels physics.

I felt that the physics cafe notes was very concise and was able to provide the framework and essential knowledge to be able to solve questions effectively. This made revision for physics particularly easy and fast as I was able to go through most of the concepts very quickly. I particularly found the focus on multiple choice questions useful as I believe that by being trained to be able to solve multiple choice questions in a short period of time, my fundamentals in the subject became a lot stronger. This enabled me to be able to translate such problem solving skills to answering even structured questions. I feel that the summary booklet provided could have included more essential definitions that we are required to remember. This tuition is largely successful in anticipating the inquiries that may arise. I found myself rarely needing to seek clarification after each lesson as the tutor has already addressed many potential concerns that I may have had. I really like the new centre at Toa Payoh as it is furnished very well and the location is convenient. My favourite part would be the self service vending machine. I joined The Physics Cafe early in J1. I feel quite prepared for the physics A-levels. I think the 2016 JC2 cohort of the Physics Math cafe will do well this year and I would definitely recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe.

The notes given by physics cafe is very concise and i find it very helpful to read as a reminder before the paper because unlike school lecture notes which you cannot finish reading even half the syllabus in a day, physics cafe notes are straightforward and short but have all the marking points. I only joined physics cafe in j2 march which i felt was a pity because if i had joined earlier, i would have a stronger physics foundation and also i would not have spent so much time trying to digest my lecture notes and barely understanding the chapter at the end of the day. Even though i was with physics cafe for less than a year, i feel that my physics foundation is better now and i can do questions faster so i can finish the paper in the stipulated time. I'd definitely tell my juniors to join physics cafe and i hope i can do Mr Sim proud at A levels!

Physics Cafe Testimonial

I signed up for physics cafe from the very beginning of jc because my basics and foundations in physics were very shaky and I'm really glad that I did. Not only did Mr Sim's lessons and techniques help firm up my concepts and foundations, the time limits that he set for us on every question helped me to work on problems and solve them within a very short time frame. By introducing the hardest possible prelim and a level questions that can be tested on every topic and going a step further by categorizing within each topic the types of questions that can be asked, students at physics cafe are definitely at an advantage as they are equipped with the ability and experience to tackle any form of question that comes our way. Mr Sim makes the most effective use of the 2 hours every week to impart the most essential problem solving techniques and knowledge that we need to get our As. Furthermore, the complimentary food and drinks help us to be even more refreshed and less tired during our lessons so that we can absorb information efficiently. All in all, physics cafe is a good investment because the experience and the efficient problem solving experience that I have gained can also be applied to other subjects as I'm made to think differently and quickly. I'm really glad I made this decision and I wish Mr Sim the very best in his future endeavors and a big thank you for all his hardwork.

I really like how the notes are short and concise, its also very convenient to carry around and refer to. It helped me alot when I'm doing physics and didnt have to spend too much time referring to school lecture notes that are lengthy and misleading. Going through popular questions expands my perspective on physics questions, Mr Sim made everything seem easier. The new TPY branch is also really huge and comfortable, I like the vending machine the best! If i were to turn back time, I would join physics cafe earlier and I would definitely recommend you guys to my juniors and friends. Thank you so much for everything! I really appreciate the admin, from making me a cup of hot milo to printing notes on time, thank you for making the whole experience more comfortable, it felt like home. I hope i can do you all proud and reach my goal for physics As. See you all soon!

Physics cafe provides notes that are very concise and to the point, as lecture notes usually have too many words, and we students have to spend time distilling the lecture notes. It does help to save time when the tuition centre provides clear notes. The lessons are also to the point and no time is wasted at all. This tuition has also helped to improve my intuition for the subject especially in problem solving. Many erroneous assumptions, misconceptions and thinking methods picked up during secondary school physics were dispelled, allowing me to solve difficult questions with relative ease. Joining physics cafe in March was indeed useful and has helped me to consistently improve my grades as well. I do feel prepared for examinations, thanks to this tuition, and would recommend my friends to join. While the price is indisputably steep, noticeable improvements in physics problem solving skills,as well as in grades make this a worthy investment for those who need extra help to master JC physics.

The Physics Cafe is very effective in helping me to solve basic and complex questions. Unlike the messy lessons in school, PC teaches me how to think methodically and approach the question step-by-step. I also learnt to avoid common pitfalls and understand the concept instead of memorizing it. Also, I feel that PC really thinks for the welfare of the students by planning different things to help us (e.g. video podcast, library, vending machine). I am always very touched by their thoughtfulness and it makes me very happy :) I would definitely recommend my friends to join the Physics Cafe as the lessons here are very effective in helping me to study key concepts and challenging questions. The mind maps and concise summaries that we have made in lessons are also very useful when doing last-minute revision or recapping topics.

Physics used to be my least favourite subject in JC1. To me, the questions are unpredictable as there is not much can be done other than memorising formulas. After struggling through the promos, I decided to join Physics Cafe, hoping to make a difference in my results, and it really works! In Mr Sim's class, Physics turn out to be something not as tedious as how I used to think. The concepts are actually easy to remember and understand, thanks to the mind maps and Secrets Enclosed. A little manipulations make them almost applicable to every type of question! I observe myself achieving consistent improvement in every examinations in JC2 after joining the class, and this really boosts my confidence in dealing with the A-Levels.

I was quite bad at Physics in Year 4 and it took me a lot of courage to choose Physics in JC. However, I realise that Physics has become my least concern among all my subjects ever since I joined since start of last year and I have been consistently scoring As for all my Physics paper. The lessons are very exam-oriented and focus on problem-solving and understanding of concepts at the same time, while school lectures are only able to fulfil the former. The questions are carefully chosen so that we will not miss any concepts during our revision. The problem-solving skills are also highly relevant in other subjects too. There are also a lot of unique student welfare such as free follow drinks from vending machines, snacks and even shuttle bus to bring you home after a hard day at work. Thank you Mr Sim for giving me confidence and enjoy Physics!

The Physics Cafe has helped me to understand physics a lot better and has exposed me to many types of good and difficult questions which I probably would not have been able to if i did not join TPC. Mr Sim is able to explain abstract physics concepts in a simple way that is easy to understand which helps a lot as I'm often confused with school notes. I feel that the 2 hours of lessons every week are very productive and efficient as we get to reinforce concepts and practice them at the same time. The new facilities are also conducive for studying and the free drinks are a bonus! I joined TPC a few weeks before promos and I wished I had join earlier as I was really weak in my concepts. I will definitely recommend my friends and juniors to join TPC!
Cheryl Ann Tan, NJC

Physics Cafe Testimonial

After I joined The Physics Cafe at the end of J1, I felt that my grasp on physics concepts and answering techniques have definitely improved. I now have greater and better understanding as compared to before and definitely would not have improved without the help of the lessons. As for the new centre, I think it's a pretty good and conducive environment as I can always study there before or after class. The admins and teachers are also really friendly and helpful. I'm also very grateful for the drinks vending machines as it's always a good refresher after a tiring day/class. For the mid years, I felt that I was more confident in answering questions as compared to before. For the first time, I came out of the exam hall feeling like I did better! And yes I actually improved 2 grades this mid years! :-) Though I could have done better on my part due to carelessness, I truly think that the June revision helped me a lot by refreshing my memory on all the past concepts and different question types. Also I want to thank the Physics Cafe for all the services provided like the shuttle bus, food and drinks! Not to mention the cafe library for self-study! It made traveling a lot easier and gave me a conducive place to study! :-) The free snacks and drinks were also really convenient and a good way to refresh after a day of working hard. Thank you Mr Sim and physics cafe for everything thus far! :-) I may not have done up to expections (yours and mine), but I could feel and see the improvement, and I'm confident to work ever harder to achieve better results!

The physics booklet contains condensed concepts and equation that allows me to have a big picture of what is going on within each topic and how topics are interconnected. Furthermore, the concepts are clearer for certain hard topics than the notes given in school. It allows me to learn more efficiently and focus on topics that i am weaker in so that i can improve at a faster rate. The lessons also clear doubts on questions that i have in mind in certain topics and this allows me to have a better understanding of physics, a subject which i did not do well from the start of the year in JC1. I would definitely introduce my friends to Physics Cafe!
Charles Quek Koh Wee, PJC

Attending physics cafe definitely helped me to learn the concepts much faster and I've stopped using my school notes as physics cafe notes are much more concise and to the point. One thing that can be improved would be to include more qualitative question in the daily dose so as to get more exposure to more questions. The tutors are very successful as in class we rarely have to ask questions as all the potential doubts that we have are all explained by Mr Sim before we even need to put up our hands to ask. All the extra services provided are very good as not many tuition Centres care about the wellbeing of their students hence it is a great initiative on the Centres part to care for its students. I started joining in the first half of the year in J1 and I think I am ready to a certain extent. I would have joined earlier when I was in secondary school as my foundation for physics is very weak as I did not attend any tuition during secondary school. I would most definitely be recommening my friends to join The Physics Cafe.

Secrets Enclosed was really helpful for my learning of this subject. Before joining TPC, I was honestly struggling with Physics and was always failing or at most getting an E grade. The JC2 Physics intensive June crash course has helped me so much and made me enjoy studying the subject. Although I still got an E during CT2, I think I made an improvement for this prelims, by getting a C grade. Personally, I feel that the Secrets Enclosed is super concised and useful, but I think each individual has different learning styles so it might be better to make your own notes by refering to both your school notes and the secrets enclosed. :) Lessons in TPC are also very intense. Mr Sim picks out the harder questions from his database of questions and forces us to think within an allocated time to improve our way of thinking. However, accuracy and precision of answering these questions are not secondary. Although we should think fast, but he will give some leeway if we needed abit more time to provide a more accurate answer. As mentioned earlier, I only joined TPC during the physics crash course as I was really desperate to improve my Physics Grade. I would definitely join TPC earlier if I knew about this tuition earlier. TPC has really helped me and I believe if everyone puts in hard work, results will really show so I'm definitely going to recommend it to my friends! In fact, I recommended two friends of mine to join! :)

The physics cafe is already very well-known especially amongst my peers in school. In JC1 before I had joined the physics cafe, I never had any tutoring and was somewhat struggling to understand the concepts taught. I managed to scrap through my promotional exams but I knew passing was not enough. In the beginning of JC2, I decided to enrol in the physics cafe with one of my classmates. What awaited me was something completely unique and different. In the physics cafe, they do not just teach; they teach with understanding. They teach you how to manage your time well, and teach you critical thinking skills. It's a holistic experience where you feel at ease too. My tutors Mr sim and Mr tan have been patient with me and they're quite funny hehehe :) While sometimes I'm slow at understanding, the tutors make sure to leave no one behind. Ever since, I feel more confident tackling my exam papers. The Centre is really cosy and conducive for self-study. In the end, joining the physics cafe wont only improve your grades, it will develop your interest and understanding in the subject, which is the most important thing if you want to remain positive in JC! I never regret my decision to join and I had an extremely fulfilling experience there!

The problems we solve in class are of a wide range and exposes us to all the types of questions that Cambridge can ask so if we do see similar qns in our papers we would have a certain level of understanding and might know how to approach the qns. The incorporation of H1 qns helps and exposes to more types of qns as our school and ourselves rarely take the effort to go through H1 since we take H2. I would recommend students to join. It really helped me conceptualise all the concepts rather than just relying on memorizing the content we need to know and really understand the concepts. It really made a big difference to my grades. Before joining I only scored Us for physics and at most a S. But after joining the physics cafe for only a year, I managed to get Bs. It really made a big difference to my grades and improved my level of understanding of the topics taught in school.

Mr Sim's physics lessons are very engaging and productive. He helps us by focusing on the important key concepts in every topic and always challenging us with difficult and interesting questions. Before joining physics cafe, I merely pass my physics. However after joining in J2 my results improved tremendously and I managed to top the class consecutively for MCT and JCT. Physics cafe have pushed me to excel and gain confidence in physics. I strongly believe that with Mr Sim's constant guidance and our diligence, it would be a smooth sailing path towards an A grade.

The physics cafe has played a pivotal role in improving my physics. When I first joined in J2, my physics was really bad and I was one of the worst students at physics in my class. Fast forward to half a year later, and I am one of the best scorers in class. What I felt helped me tremendously was the style in which the lessons were conducted. As there is a lot of emphasis on exam answering techniques, I was able to grasp the techniques and the thinking framework quickly. Furthermore, Mr Sim has made a conscientious effort to ensure that the students have a good and comfortable learning environment through the provision of free snacks and drinks.

I will definitely recommend the PMC to my friends as it's a one of kind tuition centre that puts a personal touch into what they teach. You'll be able to learn what you'll dread learning in the most personal and anecdotal approach possible, which is going to be change the way you see your syllabus for the better! The classes are effective in the sense that the syllabus content has been perfectly captured into just the 2 hours of listening and thinking. The pedagogy behind such ways of teaching is just simply timeless.

Firstly, in such a short period of time(3 months), i was able to improve my physics grade from below 35% to an all time high 65%, honestly my self revision for physics was not very extensive, it was all the hours spent in Mr Sim's classes that had me prepared for the exams. The 2 differentiating factors of this class is that the content coverage is super efficient, and the great emphasis on skills to answer tough questions, these 2 factors trained my unconscious mind. It was like intuitive to me when i was doing my MYE despite not having enough practices on my own. I am glad ive found this tuition centre early in the year.

I only joined since the June Holiday workshop due to the struggle I had with Physics in school. Joining the workshop has really helped me improve my grade (S) to an (E)/(D) 49.6%. Honestly, I didn't like physics before joining the workshop. However, I am glad that I am part of this crash course because it has really helped me gain confidence in physics and sparked my love for this subject. Mr. Sim is very successful in bringing in difficult concepts into real world experiences which hence makes the seemingly difficult concepts very much easier. The crash course has also been effective as Mr. Sim is able to tell us how the concepts can be tested and we are hence able to save time from re-reading our school notes for revision. The Physics Secrets Enclosed booklet is a really effective summarised booklet and that it has really helped me solve questions with the simplest and shortest way possible. I really enjoy the open cafe library concept to self - study and definitely love the free treats provided. :)

The Physics Cafe has given me, by far, the best tuition experience I've ever had. Mr Sim is able to understand and empathise with students' struggles and help us accordingly. He is patient and is always willing to answer any of our doubts. His teaching capabilities are simply put.. superior. He has the knack for explaining concepts in a way that anyone can understand by making it relatable. He draws links from chapter to chapter whilst going into the crux of every topic, allowing us to see the Physics syllabus from both macroscopic and microscopic views. In secondary school, Physics was always my most hated subject. I disliked how there seemed to be so many hidden elements to a single concept, and that none of my teachers could offer me reasonable explanations as to how things really worked. So yes, I memorised my way through 'O' Levels. Not fun. Boring. But I remembered being mindblown after my first lesson with the Physics Cafe. Gone were the "Don't ask so much, just answer like this" days. Mr Sim ensures that every possible lingering question any student has is answered. From then on, I started gaining confidence and interest in the subject. May I also say that the Physics Cafe has the best staff ever. And honestly, their planning skills are superb. You can always trust them when you need help. They take care of your welfare so well you'll start to wonder what else they can come up with. From shuttle buses home, free food, free coloured pens, to even a gigantic vending machine.. I have no idea. Hands down the best. Just enrol. Right now.

The physics cafe is truly amazing! Before I joined the physics cafe, my knowledge towards most physics concepts were very shallow. However, ever since I've joined the physics cafe, I've started to really come to understand the these concepts. Mr Sim carries out lessons in a very engaging way and makes understanding challenging concepts a lot easier especially for students like me who are not strong in the subject to begin with. The Physics Cafe also has a very conducive environment which makes learning a lot more enjoyable and they provide services such as shuttle buses and complimentary snacks which makes the learning experience that much better.

The Maths Cafe has definitely helped me a lot in gearing me up to tackle challenging questions that aren't typical/standard. This allowed me to gain more confidence in tackling any type of questions at hand and to hopefully attain >80 for the paper. The Secrets Enclosed Notes are also very useful as a form of summary for the whole syllabus and it really helped me in maintaining my A for Maths ever since I joined TPC and thereafter scoring even better than before I joined. Prelims had been tough and getting not only an A, but also somewhat my best Math results in J2 was a blessing and a booster for A levels. By scoring better in my H2 Maths, it also helped me in my H3 Maths (MOE) which I am currently undertaking.

The tutors I have met in The Physics Cafe are all extremely approachable and dedicated to teaching, never hesitating to extend a helping hand to anyone in need of help, even beyond lessons. The level of readiness can be reflected in each and every lesson, as such motivating and encouraging me to seek further clarifications when in the slightest doubt. The notes and questions presented for us are concise and succinct, effectively tackling the general problems or misconceptions students may have, and has been a very targetted appraoch to our learning, setting our foundation right. The various services the centre has extended to students, such as a condusive studying environment, is to me, a demonstration of trying to provide the best for students, taking into account the welfare of all students, of which I am thankful for. It is the tutors, who are going out of their way to care for us, which is unique to the tutors in The Physics Cafe. The tutors are definitely and undoubtedly well-equipped to push their students to the peak of their performance during A levels, and there is no doubt the students can achieve the grades they are seeking for, with the guidance and care of all the tutors in the centre. As such, I would definitely encourage my friends to seek The Physics Cafe as an option, when they need extra support in Math and Physics. Thank you Physics and Math Cafe for the past year!

I used to do very poorly in Math in J1, and the teachers at the Physics Cafe have helped me so much in helping me improve my fundamentals across all the topics. The very succinct and yet concise way of teaching has helped me summarize and understand what I previously used to think was a lot to remember, and the very wide range of questions that are given during class has really helped in helping me identify certain types of questions in the exam when they come out. I am really thankful I joined the Physics Cafe and I certainly wished I had joined in J1 but nevertheless the J2 journey has certainly been enjoyable for me. In addition, I really want to thank both Mr Ang and Mr Tan for making the lessons interesting and their patience in answering our relentless questions, we really appreciate it! Also, the math secret enclosed booklet is super useful! Its such an effective way of condensing all the information required to look at right before an exam. :D

Physics used to be a very foreign subject to me but The Physics Cafe has offered me some clarity to the subject. Mr Sim has a unique way of engaging his students and making the daunting subject seem so much easier. Not only do we learn concepts, we learn how to apply these concepts into difficult questions - and the application, I believe, is the most essential exam technique to be acquired. As such, I find myself growing to appreciate the subject each day. Furthermore, with the newly expanded centre at Toa Payoh where snacks, drinks and various amenities are available, it has been a pleasure to attend tuition every week. I am confident that the JC2 cohort this year will be able to score very well, thanks to the help of The Physics Cafe! :-)

I started going for tuition not because I do not understand the topic, but I need help in tackling the questions. Information can be found from textbooks and lecture notes, but solving questions in an entirely different thing. The physics cafe helped me to understand the topic even better and apply the knowledge to answer exam questions. Mr Sim has helped me to become more confident in the subject and my physics have improved significantly after joining Physics Maths Cafe. I can't fall asleep during tuition because every moment is a filled moment, every minute and second is maximised for teaching and learning, no time for slacking or an eye shut or to daydream unlike in school. I will definitely recommend to my friends.

The Physics Cafe has helped me tremendously, after joining for 3 months, my grades improved from E to an A. I believe his technique and comprehensiveness has contributed significantly to my progress. I discovered things that I didn't know before and cemented my physics concepts. There were many opportunities for time trials which simulated examinations conditions (with Mr. Sim as the invigilator) that trained me to complete questions quickly and accurately. The two hours spent in tuition were very well spent and worthwhile. At The Physics Cafe, there are no delays only extensions, no judgment only motivation and no teachers only mentors. Under his strict and caring guidance, I feel that the 2014 JC2 cohort of The Physics Cafe will do well.

My experience in the Physics Café has been really pleasant as I learnt to understand Physics concepts much better and efficiently. The notes designed by the Physics Café are very suitable as they are concise and contain the most important concepts in every chapter. It is also very skill focused, which benefitted me tremendously in terms of answering questions. Before I attended The Physics Café, I was struggling to extract out main concepts in every chapter and to understand the concepts taught as the notes provided by my school has too much unimportant and distracting information. Even after spending a lot of time understanding my school notes and concepts, I was still troubled by the application of concepts in exams. After joining The Physics Cafe, I find that I can do my paper much better. More importantly, I am very glad that I have started to build up confidence in Physics. Mr Dave's lessons are very interesting and exam-focused. The students in The Physics Café are very capable and their capabilities really motivate me to work harder. I want to be as good as some of them. Generally, from my observation, this cohort can do really well in the A level’s. I will also work as hard as I can to make sure that I eventually reach my target in spite of the ups and downs in my performance during school exams throughout these two years.

The Physics Cafe provides a short concise lecture which focuses on answering technique as well as exam skills. This makes the Physics Cafe truly stand out, ensuring that every student is well equipped with the necessary skills and tools needed for the examinations. Another amazing tool which The Physics Cafe provides is the amazing "Secrets Enclosed" as well as the detailed, yet concise notes that come along with every chapter. This breaks every topic down to its first principals as well as the set number of skills that the questions about the topic can cover and test. This enables one to study efficiently and effectively for any examination as just flipping through the notes will ensure that one is able to absorb the important details for every topic! Most importantly, The Physics Cafe has a talented teacher Mr. Sim, who has an ability to get the main point of each topic across in an effective manner that one is able to remember the details for a long time after the lesson. Furthermore, Mr. Sim's lessons are engaging and interactive, ensuring that one is fully alert throughout the whole lesson, thus ensuring that no time is wasted. I would definitely recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe!

Hi Mr Sim! Now that physics (and my A-levels) have ended, I thought I should send you this text :) Thank you very much for being my teacher & for doing more than just teaching knowledge to us. I've learned more than physics from you; you've taught me what tenacity really is and exemplified the persona of someone who takes a lot of pride in what he does, spurring me on to strive to do the same :) So thank you very much for that & for making physics enjoyable & almost painless to learn. I cannot promise you I can get an A for physics but I can assure you I've done my best and am grateful for your guidance nonetheless. All the best with your future/current batches of students & enjoy your well deserved end of year break!!

What I really like about The Physics Cafe is how Mr Sim is so dedicated and passionate about teaching and how he is always so patient with our questions. I never enjoyed studying Physics, but Mr Sim managed to help me develop a liking for this subject and made physics a seemingly simpler subject to deal with. Unlike tuition at other centres, I thoroughly enjoyed classes and look forward to lessons every week. One thing that was particularly useful was the secrets enclosed booklet where Mr Sim condensed an entire chapter's concepts into a single page which has made reference to notes so much more convenient. I really admire how he was able to compact two years' worth of work into 7 lessons during the June holidays. It was really tough having such a tight schedule but Mr Sim made sure that he never left out anything that was on his agenda. He has showed us that the questions were always centered around those few concepts and by repeating them, he has managed to drill those concepts into us. Mr Sim makes me feel very well-prepared for my exams as he has prepared all the necessary resources that we need for us. Thank you, Mr Sim, for being such a wonderful teacher and for always caring for our welfare before everything else. I will miss lessons here :)

I got an A for physics and I feel really relieved and happy. I feel good about my results as i cannot ask for more. The Physics cafe definitely made a huge difference in this long journey. Mr Dave Sim is very meticulous and he takes the extra effort to be interested in every student's progress. He breaks down challenging concepts and explains them in further details. He consolidates tips into small booklets and teaches his students to be exam smart. He also gives us ample questions for us to practice and to increase our exposure to all the different kinds of questions with different level of difficulty. Yes I feel that I am able to understand concepts better than the other students in my school as I have a headstart to the topics that were going to be taught. I highly recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe!

I feel that attending lessons at The Physics Cafe has been extremely fulfilling and useful for me. The concepts taught are extremely clear as well and it really does help to boost my confidence on the subject. The explanations are also extremely detailed, as compared to the lengthy explanations given by the school. I do not understand 3/4 of the lectures in school because the lecturers are just horrible but here in The Physics Cafe, I can actually understand everything that is being taught within the short 2h. I am really grateful for The Physics Cafe as it was really an extremely pleasant 2 years experience with them.

I used to struggle with Physics in J1, as it was such a complicated subject to me. I did not understand any of the school's lectures and they seemed really boring to me. However, when Mr. Sim started to teach me the subject, I found myself understanding the concepts involved instead of pure memorising, and Mr. Sim always managed to simplify even the most complicated ideas in the H2 physics syllabus. Mr. Sim made learning Physics easy and even interesting, and I started to do better during my exams without much difficulty. Mr. Sim was also concerned about my grades and gave me much needed encouragement during the days leading up the 'A' Levels. My experience learning in The Physics Cafe has hence been very fruitful and enjoyable, and I would definitely recommend it to those who do not already know about this learning centre! :) Once again, thank you so much for your guidance and encouragement :) regardless of my result in March, I feel that you have really made Physics more understandable and fun for me :) Your physics lessons were indeed very helpful and enjoyable, I cannot even begin to describe how thankful and happy I am! Haha :)

Hello Mr Sim! I just want to thank you for making physics so easy and reviving my love for the subject. When I first entered junior college two years ago I wasn't sure whether or not to take physics or biology and this was especially frustrating because both were subjects that I loved. I decided to go with physics despite being slightly stronger in the latter because the courses I wanted to take were linked to it. It was a decision I largely regretted in my first year because no matter how hard I tried, I never could do well in the subject. I didn't understand what went wrong, I listened to lectures, handed in all my tutorials, rushed through assessment books and tys papers(even in the first year) and I was still failing. It just didn't add up. I managed to stay afloat though, and hence didnt engage the services of Mr Sim until year two where I joined in the June workshop because I was really in an emergency situation. Honestly, I was a little reluctant to go for Mr Sim's class at first even after a friend told me about all the magic that he managed to perform for physics. I have attended tuition classes in secondary school before and I have had my fair share of bad tutors who never really helped me at all. Most seemed like an extension of school (or sometimes worse) and I didnt believe that the physics cafe was any different. That all changed however when I attended the first lesson of the workshop. Within 15 minutes of the lesson I learnt something new about the first topic which I thought I was a master in. Throughout the workshop my physics standard has certainly improved much and topics which I was weak at suddenly became easy and I found many misconceptions in the topics I thought I was strong in. By the end of it, I felt ready to take on the exams and that was when I decided to attend his normal lessons as well. Mr Sim has an amazing way of linking all the topics together and when the A Levels finally came physics wasnt a bundle of topics it was one big subject that I had finally gained confidence for. I would highly recommend Mr Sim to anyone who is taking physics at the JC level because he is a really good teacher and I'm not the kind to praise others easily so I really mean it.

I feel that the exam techniques (grade A) questions are challenging and help me tackle difficult problems. I also strongly feel that the notes given by the lecturer, the short summary as well as the points brought up in class have helped me clear many doubts and understand a lot the concept better than in school. At the same time helping to "drill"/absorb important concepts. And I believe that coming for this tuition has really helped me in understanding difficult concepts better than I have understood when they were taught in school or during my independent study sessions. It is really a pity that I didn't join earlier. With this being said, I would definitely recommend this physics tuition to all my juniors. And I believe everyone who has joined this tuition earlier would ace the A Level exams, and those who joined later would do decently at least.

The Physics Cafe has been wonderful in helping me with my physics, I never knew I had the potential to actually do well in this subject I was so scared of before I came here. Not only is Mr Sim so well versed in the subject that he makes it seem as easy as pie, lessons are also engaging and the notes and incredibly helpful. There is an intrinsic difference between a student from this class and ones I see in school, here we're taught to study smart, not just study, which I have realized makes a huge difference. Every physics tuition class is so meaningful in the revision leading up to A levels and I am pretty confident that with all the help I've gotten from here, I can get my distinction.

After attending the physics cafe, physics really got a lot easier with mindmaps and many short cuts taught through practices after practices. Previously struggled understanding my own school's lecture notes however Mr Sim has a way of helping students understand complex concepts through concise explanations. His lessons are also entertaining at times; livening and lightening the mood through some jokes! :) The June holiday lessons were the most beneficial as it is through those lessons that I was able to catch up with my J1 work and clear my doubts at the same time. Thanks Mr Sim for making physics a lot easier and more enjoyable!

I was amazed that a person without physics common sense like me was able to pass physics under the holy guidance of Mr sim; I have never passed a physics test in JC except for the mid years and prelim where I miraculously improved after attending his divine weekly lessons which equipped me with critical exam skills necessary to solve physics questions. He had also offered an invaluable perspective from the lens of a paper setter.It is unquestionable that my physics revision has become more efficient and effective with Mr sim, who is able to point out the key points and techniques to tackle different types of questions. I would definitely recommend my friends to join physics cafe if time can rewind.

I definitely would not regret my choice attending The Physics Cafe. Despite starting tuition later than most of my peers, I would say that I have learnt alot thus far. Lessons are at a comfortable pace enabling me to be able to understand the lesson and each chapters taught well. Distance may be hassle as I live in the east, but it is definitely worth the trip and I can truthfully say that I have learnt something new in every lesson since attending classes here. I would definitely recommend this tuition to my friends.

The Physics Cafe has its very own efficient way of teaching physics. We were trained to think and solve the questions quickly, but with accuracy. The concept maps that we have filled in for every topic in the Secrets Enclosed is very useful to when we revise for exams. We spent a sufficient amount time to revise the topics, and come up with a concept map without compromising on the details of the topics. In this area, The Physics Cafe has helped me to use my time more wisely and this has certainly helped me to improve. In The Physics Cafe, we not only solve typical A level questions, we also solve challenging questions that will motivate us to think more in depth, enabling us to give better quality answers. Thank you physics cafe for helping me all this while and now I can solve questions with more confidence!

A lot of the questions used during lessons are great in helping me to understand the concepts better. It helps to save a lot of time reading my lecture notes and understanding it. Doing tutorial questions in class has also become an optional choice since the weekly tuition class has already made me do a lot of practice. To be honest, I actually really enjoy the lessons with Dave. Out of all the tuitions I have been going since young, I can honestly say that this is the only tuition that i have thoroughly enjoyed all the lessons. I think the best thing about this tuition would be that every student is constantly being engaged by Dave's questions. It forces us to think on our feet which is good because we are actually learning and applying the concepts. Of course I think my cohort will do well this year and i will definitely recommend my younger siblings to join TPC in the future.

Personally, Physics Cafe has been a great help in my understanding of Physics. Mr Sim have always used simple but specific examples to bring across key concepts to us, and these concepts are etched into me such that it makes revision a breeze. I cannot imagine myself getting the consistent good results in school without his guidance. Physics Cafe has allowed me to be ahead of my class at all times, a lesson a week is sufficient if one is attentive throughout it. I would definitely recommend my juniors or others in need of help in physics to join Physics Cafe. Thank you for the effort you have put in for us Mr Sim.

Time is never considered wasted each physics cafe lesson as I'm always able to learn/reinforce my knowledge each lesson. The physics cafe is different from other tuition centres/school lessons because they focus on A level questions and tackling grade A questions that most of the cohort won't be able to do; instead of just blindly drilling practice questions which is of less use. Students in the physics cafe understand the concepts very well and are able to get the answers very quickly. I think the 2015 cohort will do well this year. I would definitely recommend the physics cafe to my friends!!

Physics lessons in the Cafe has helped me tremendously in my physics throughout the past 2 years and I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey with TPC especially since physics seemed quite absurd to me in J1 before joining the tuition. Surprisingly, I've looked forward to every tuition as Mr Sim makes lessons very productive yet fun. Despite living quite far away from the TPC centre I go to, I've never felt like the travel time was time wasted because I probably learn more in the 2 hours then if I had to learn physics all by myself. Mr Sim is one of the best tuition teachers I've gotten and despite the large class size, he manages and provides attention and concern to all (and sends very encouraging emails from time to time). Very thankful to have found TPC! Thank you Mr Sim!

The Physics Cafe is really helpful in splitting each topic into parts and what are the different types of questions that will come out which makes us confident going into the exams. Having a guide to answer questions also has us stay calm when we see tougher questions. I also saved a lot of time in The Physics Cafe as difficult concepts that will take me hours to understand by myself can be explain within minutes with simple ideas here. In The Physics Cafe, just being there gives you a strange motivation to do well among people of other JCs especially the better ones. You are also trained to think quickly to answer the question until equations start popping out in your head within seconds. My peers here in The Physics Cafe are way more serious in lessons and are confident in themselves with is nice to see as compared to in CJC where people are really laid back. The JC2 cohort will definitely do as well or even better than the previous year. I will recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe as everything is made simple even the most difficult concepts which really help.

Physics cafe has allowed us a better understanding of the syllabus within the shortest time possible. It has shortened the time I require to spend revising each topic. It has indeed been a challenging journey, from learning how to answer basic questions to grade A questions. Even though it has been challenging, Mr Sim has always taught the lesson with a cheerful attitude, making jokes along the way and making us laugh. I hope that these last few weeks of lessons will truly be fruitful and that I will be able to obtain the grade I hope for.

I was consistently failing Physics in J1 despite putting the most amount of effort into it for my promos. It was still my worst done subject. I just didn't know my concepts well enough and didn't know how to approach questions. Until my senior introduced me to The Physics Cafe, and it was quite a life saver. My grades jumped to a C in lecture tests and I had a lot more confidence in physics now even being able to help my friends in school. I think what makes TPC different from school is that Physics Maths Cafe new concepts and topics are built upon layers of what was taught previously. Being able to link them helps us remember and understand them clearer as oppose to school's method or teaching topics on its own. Also the technique that TPC uses to help you answer questions are all very systematic which is a universal skill that can be applied throughout all types of questions making it much easier for you to answers questions from other topics. All of these factors made me very thankful and grateful for joining TPC.

I am very thankful the extra practice questions that are challenging and comprehensive in the form of booklets that can be easily referred to. I also like the Physics and Maths Secrets Enclosed booklet which contains all the essential key points and concepts as well as definitions and formulae which we need to know before taking any major exams! Doing all the questions in class as well as those in the Physics Maths Cafe "take away" package gives me more confidence in tackling my exams! Mr Sim also gives very clear and precise explanations of difficult concepts using analogies that are easily relatable to us; making something so difficult seem relatively manageable!!! Thank you Mr Sim!!
Fiona, RI

I am definitely very much more confident in Physics! I have always second-guessed myself, especially for the more complicated topics or the ones I felt I was never very good at. But after one year under Mr Sim, especially the June Workshop, it definitely helped me to answer more questions with much more certainty as I do truly understand a lot more:) I think the main difference lies in the fact that Mr Sim always ensures that we get enough practice, and does not waste too much time teaching things over and over again, nor does he teach anything that is redundant. I have spent a lot more time practicing questions, improving both my technique as well as my speed. I think the large number of students he has is testament to the fact that his methods and teaching methods definitely DO work:) I would definitely recommend my friends to Physics Cafe!!!

Despite joining The Physics Cafe for only around 2 months, I see great improvement in not only how I approach questions but also my learning methodology. Compared to the thick school lecture notes which covers much background knowledge and less application relevant to tackling examination questions, The Physics Cafe has structured its lessons and organized the notes in a very concise and easily applicable way. This has helped me to move from spending lots of futile time revising materials with a diluted focus to being able to learn to sharpen my key concepts and practice applying them during examination preparation. I'm really glad that now, I can start to learn to go into the examination hall with an organized and clear mind with concepts in "Secrets Enclosed" rather than approaching questions in a random manner. Joining The Physics Cafe has given me learning experiences so enjoyable and fruitful that I would recommend it to any friend who desire to develop passion and confidence for the subject.

At first, I didn't really want a physics tuition because since primary school, the only subject I need tuition in was English but ever since I got into JC, I never really got a grade that is close to distinction and I lost motivation in many aspects especially physics because I never really understood what was taught in lectures or tutorials. However, it all changed when I joined The Physics Cafe as Mr Sim was able to explain everything so clearly and systematically that everything seems so simple! I always look forward to his lessons as I know I will learn something useful ranging from understanding the contents to how to effectively use what you know to tackle those grade A questions. Not only can I catch up to my classmates in school, I also gained lots of confidence in answering difficult questions. I would definitely recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe as it is really effective in pulling up my grades.

It's definitely more time saving to learn from lessons in The Physics Cafe as self study has not been helpful for me. The lessons here helped me understand much better than I would on my own. I think the difference between me before lessons here and right now is that when I look at a question, I know methods to solve it and have the concepts in my mind. In the past, I am always unsure and guessed equations to use. The lessons here are much more focused and easy to understand than school lectures and tutorials. I think the cohort this year will do well. I know that I didn't really fare well for my prelims, but I really saw improvements in my overall understanding. I am no longer afraid of physics as a subject and I know that i have a chance to achieve my A in A levels(which I must!). I will recommend it to my friends because I could not imagine a better tuition for physics The Physics Cafe.

Hi Mr Sim, I am really thankful for this opportunity to study physics with you. Your lessons have been very engaging and exciting and has helped me to develop a passion for physics. The exam answering techniques that you taught in the classes and workshops have really made a difference for me. It has helped me to answer physics questions with much more ease and confidence. In terms of areas of improvement I feel that the experience on a whole was a very wholesome one and that there are limited areas of improvement academically. The Physics Cafe lessons have taught me to analyze questions better as well as apply the correct concepts to solve questions. It has also given me ample practice to build up my confidence as well as discover my areas of weaknesses. The tips and common misconceptions that you go through in class are really useful in giving me the edge over my peers in school. I would definitely recommend friends to join the physics cafe as it is really the most effective tuition centers around and it will definitely guarantee good grades if you put your heart and soul into listening and completing the assignments. Thank you for all the help and assistance along this arduous journey Mr Sim!

The Physics Cafe has been successful in developing problem solving techniques and exam skills. The mind map given is helpful in summarizing all the main points of the chapter, allowing me to solve and preempt different types of problems in the exam. Travelling to the physics cafe weekly is not a waste of time as the lessons allow me to understand the topics better in a shorter time compared to being at home. Lessons in the physics cafe are more productive and clearer as compared to what the teachers teach in school. Mr Sim teaches us techniques to solve problems quickly, which may not be taught by my school tutor. Yes I think the 2014 JC 2 cohort of the physics cafe will do well this year.

Yes I would definitely recommend my friends to join Physics Café because I've improved tremendously ever since I joined. Mr Sim is really engaging and helps break down each chapter into individual concepts that we have to know/memorize. I never knew studying physics could be so effortless and easy. By simply attending the weekly lesson at Physics Café, I can now focus and invest more time on studying other subjects that I'm weaker in. On top of that, Mr Sim has also helped cultivate my interest in Physics and I am even thinking of doing Physics-related university courses.

The Physics Cafe has been a tremendous psychological boost to my confidence in Physics. Before I came here, I was hesitant about practicing Physics because it was one of my weakest subjects. However, the unique method of learning here, from the colorful and simplified mind maps, has radically transformed my attitude and aptitude for Physics. I am confident that this batch of students will benefit tremendously from the lessons and do well for the final exams. Thank you Mr Sim for your exuberant teaching which never fails to light up my Physics journey. To put it simply, Physics has been a joy.

The past two years with Mr Sim certainly was an enjoyable time! Physics in JC certainly became a breeze when my teachers went through concepts that I had already learnt at The Physics Cafe! The Physics Cafe does a great job in introducing the Secrets Enclosed booklet, which definitely helps students save time, in terms of looking for formulas. The Physics Cafe supplies loads of useful and necessary materials to help students, but only if they choose to do the work that is given. For me, I live very close to The Physics Cafe, so I am glad that I don't have to spend too long travelling. Neither do I have to take so much time to revise physics as a whole. Physics cafe certainly gets to the points that you need to score instead of overloading you with basic examples that do not really test your understanding of concepts but application of formulas, which is not what exams really test. Peers in The Physics Cafe are more relaxed I would say, since we all know the secrets and tricks behind some of the questions, while others may have to struggle a bit harder than us to do well in Physics. I definitely think that the JC2 cohort of 2014 will do well (gut feeling). If my friends do need help with physics, I definitely recommend that they join the Physics Cafe!

The Physics Cafe has really broken down each topic to its core and helped us understand each topic from the basics. The June workshop helped me out tremendously by not only covering a wide range of all the topics but also going through the popular questions. I have gain a lot of confidence, enough to hope for an A in the A levels unlike before. The lesson environment is also wonderfully set up and it can be seen that there was a lot of effort put in into decoration and other details. The environment is made really conducive for studying.

Zamen Lin, HCI

Physics Cafe Testimonial

The physics cafe has helped me so much in grasping concepts in physics. In school lectures, teachers tend to cover a lot of content in a short period of time, perpetually leaving me confused and less motivated because physics would seem like such a difficult subject. At tuition, concepts are very succinctly organized to aid answering of questions to enable us to understand what the questions are asking for. Initially I was very involved in my CCA and never had much time to study because I was always so drained from school. When my work lagged behind, I was unmotivated especially since the content was so difficult to grasp. With Mr Sim's help, I was better able to appreciate physics and started catching up with my work a lot faster than I thought. In addition to helping me academically, Mr Sim is a very encouraging teacher. Despite having so many classes a week, he still makes sure to open up more time to talk to us to ensure that his students are coping well with stress and school related problems. It is very reassuring when teachers make an effort to do so and definitely helps me to regain some motivation and drive for the A levels.

The Physics Cafe has really helped me a lot as a student to grasp concepts better and to tackle exams better. It has been the catalyst to the improvement i have made for my Physics subject. The Physics Cafe, with Mr Sim especially, has made Physics so fun and interesting for me that i've never ever lost interest in it ever again no matter how hard it was, or how boring it might have been. Physics Cafe lessons are very different from school's tutorial and lecture system as it goes right into the main crux of JC life, which is to solve A level questions. School's prefer to help us develop and understand the topics and do no emphasis as much on the examination techniques as The Physics Cafe does. The Physics Cafe provides us with the essential tools to supplement our knowledge and thus make it simpler for us to answer questions as we now know what Cambridge wants. I would definitely recommend my friend to join The Physics Cafe as the essential tools you gain to tackle exams and the supplements to your knowledge are just the basic things you will obtain. The bond and friendship you will form with not only your mates from the Physics Cafe but also with our dear Mr Sim will be very much worthwhile for all of us.

Mr Sim is a superb physics teacher that is completely different from your typical JC lecturer/ teachers.Even though I was a consistent student in school, I was rather confused by the physic theories taught by my school lecturers and hence repeatedly scored badly in school tests/exams. Rather baffled and frustrated by this, I was urged to find the best solution to improve my physic grade with the A Levels looming and this was when I was recommended to go for physics tuition at the Physics Cafe.Astoundingly, Mr Sim was able to explain theories and concepts so clearly, it is as if I was introduced to physics for the first time all over again. The small class size also makes it convenient to ask any questions to clear my doubts, and hence making it much more effective than school lectures/tutorial classes. Mr Sim's teaching methods are also interesting, concise and easily understandable.The notes he specially made for his students are another plus point, where school notes wane in comparison and can be cast aside.By taking the very last minute resort to improve my physics grade in the last 2 months before A levels by not only going to weekly tuition but also the holiday crash course, one may say that I was very lucky to have obtained an A in my A levels physics; but the other reason would be because Mr Sim is such a good teacher! :)

Before I entered this tuition, I thought I had known everything about Physics. However, the first test I got back was a dismal 5 out of 25. It brought me to this cruel reality that in junior college, physics is not that simple as just "applying the formula" anymore. In fact, it is so much more than that. Thanks to some online research, I was able to find The Physics Cafe and I never regretted for a moment joining it. My Physics immediately shot up to a borderline pass at the next major examination and I was surprised by how much I had actually not known. Mr Sim is not only a great teacher, but he has made learning both fun and easy to remember. Through him, I have learnt so much more than what my school lecture notes can possibly hope to have. It was always tiring for him during Saturday morning as he only has a 1 hour break before the next lesson. However, he still stayed back to help many of the JC2s who have urgent questions that require him for help. Without him, I shudder to think what would have happened to my physics. With him, I am confident and approach papers with the belief that I have the ability to conquer almost any question. Thank you Mr Sim!(:

I would certainly recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe. It is a unique gift of an individual (Mr Dave Sim) to be able to present Physics in such a simplistic manner. Despite joining Mr Dave Sim's class late into my J2 year, the weekly lessons made a tremendous impact on my grades and gave me confidence for my upcoming exams. What I absolutely love about his lessons is that he makes an effort to ask every student questions and this definitely helped me pinpoint my weak areas

Physics Cafe Testimonial

The thing that struck me about Mr Dave Sim was how dedicated he was to teaching and helping his students improve. We had a class from 4:30pm to 7:00pm, following which he had another group of students at 7:30pm – meaning that he had barely half an hour for his dinner. However, he often extended our lessons and answered our incessant questions, resulting in him having less than fifteen minutes to eat. (Sorry Sir ><) The four of us started lessons with him with only a few months left to the exam, in other words, a crazy crash course. I was terrible at Physics, really really terrible, but Mr Dave Sim managed to help me understand various concepts through his precise, yet simple explanations. One thing that was particularly useful was the mind map he'd create for each topic, condensing the entire chapter into a single page of concise and extremely useful notes. Make no mistake about it, those mind maps were our lifelines on the day before our exams. It was pretty tough having such a tight time constraint, but Mr Dave Sim was extremely patient, going through multiple questions and repeating examples to make sure we got all our fundamentals right. Somehow, we covered all that was necessary, and did well in our exams. Lessons weren't only informative – they were highly enjoyable as well. The four of us actually looked forward to Thursdays! Mr Dave Sim made use of interesting teaching methods to help us visualise abstract Physics ideas. Videos, animations, models – you name it. He particularly had a knack for little magic tricks (too bad we figured them out though) which held Physics notions behind them. Learning Physics became fun and exciting. You'd want to have Mr Dave Sim as your Physics tutor, because really, he is an awesome teacher. Not only because of how capable he is, but because he truly has a heart for his students. I wouldn't have conquered survived Physics without his help. Thank you so much Sir! :D

Mr Sim's lessons are really great, he is an awesome physics teacher in that he really helps you understand the physics concepts behind each topic and also helps tie the different parts of a topic together! His methods to tackle questions are also very effective. He makes it really very easy to understand Physics and I've learnt more under him in 1 year than I could in 3-4 years at school!He has completely overthrown my years-long belief that Physics is a subject not meant to be understood!

I must thank Mr Dave Sim and his precisely and accurately prepared "Physics secrets enclosed". It is handy, succinct and informative. Before every exam, I would go through it thoroughly, that gave me the mental readiness and confidence. The concepts gone through during regular lessons are very clear, Mr Sim does highlight the topics with greater emphasis and the relationship between some. The Physics Cafe focuses on the very essential of understanding Physics more than just being able to answer the usual questions. It is the thought process. With understanding, naturally, our results have jumped. And with sound recommending this tuition to my juniors. I have benefited from the programme and I'm sure it'll be likewise for my juniors. The physics cafe is there to support you, if you fully utilise the materials given, like completing all your "daily dose" for every chapter, there's no reason why you won't enjoy Physics and do well in it! Thank you Mr Dave Sim and the Physics Cafe.

Mr Sim is really the coolest teacher one can ever have. He makes physics so fun and easy to learn! He is just like a friend to all of us and it was never difficult for me to approach him with questions. I looked forward to his lessons every week because they were always enjoyable. Getting an A for physics was definitely a no-no for me but that was before joining his tuition. With his comprehensive notes, creative teaching and fun-loving character, how tough can it be! I love physics so much now because of him! MR SIM YOU'RE THE BEST ^___^

Mr Sim has been my physics tutor for about a year now and indeed it must be said he is one of the most likable teachers around. The first thing that strikes you about Mr Sim is that he is indeed a teacher at heart. Mr Sim enjoys a passion, magic. We all know that magicians never like to reveal their tricks, no matter how trivial they may be. However, Mr Sim has on several occasions taught us a few of his tricks, of course not before performing them first. (Let me stress that this was of course done during our free time!) To many this may seem as an irrelevant point, to me it is a testament of Mr Sim's character. Teaching is in his blood, by it physics, magic, or other things. What makes him so special is not only his heart to teach, it is also his personality. Despite being our teacher he has still retained his youthful nature and is able to bond with the class on a whole new level. In my opinion, a teacher cannot effectively communicate his or her knowledge without first bonding with the class. I've never enjoyed a lesson so thoroughly and learnt so much at the same time. Indeed my journey with Mr Sim has been short, it has been an unforgettable journey. Though as a student close to competing my A level i'll "disappear like the pen in ear" (this is reference to a trick taught to us by Mr Sim), i'll never forget what Mr Sim has taught me over this period of time, and what he represents. (a rare breed). Bravo Mr Sim. A million thanks of gratitude (:

I would say that the centre has been very successful in implementing techniques so that students are able to score in their exams as compared to their peers. What can be improved would be having more questions of grade A standard so that students can get experienced to the full blow of A levels.Firstly and I would think most importantly many physics tutors in my school treat physics as a dead subject. They feel that it is something just like secondary school where stuffing information to us would suffice. However, in the Physics cafe, physics is alive(: we can see how something actually works and clears the many doubts that we might possess in secondary school where information is stuffed into us. Secondly I would feel that the physics cafe has very concise notes that makes the students interested in dng more of physics. Be it due to the small size of the booklets or the fact that we are dng so many mcqs, something is clearly working there.I would definitely want to recommend my friends to join the physics cafe.

Lessons at the Physics Cafe are unlike any normal mundane lessons in classroom and you'll always look forward to attend his lessons. Thursday has always been a day I look forward to since the day I joined the physics cafe. Mr sim is very charismatic and encouraging tutor. He made physics lessons very interesting and every laws and principles just fall in the right place. The experience in physics cafe is a very fruitful and enjoyable one and will definitely miss them.. Thank you mr sim!! You'll be missed! :))

Since JC1 ,my girl in one of the top JCs had changed 5 Physics tutors. Mr Dave Sim is the sixth.Before she joins Mr Dave Sim's class she was demoralised and had no confidence in learning Physics cos no matter how much time she had spent in Physics she did not do well in her exams.After joining Mr Dave Sim's class in end of April, She is gaining interest n confidence in learning Physics.She started to feel Physics is as intresting to learn as Chemistry which is one of her stronger subjects. Mr Sim's STYLE AND WAY OF TEACHING makes Physics a subject which is SO MUCH EASIER AND FASTER TO UNDERSTAND and hence can derive the answers by the FASTEST AND EASIEST WAY.Each time after his lesson,my girl is able to handlle better her school tutorials and also those self-practice questions. My girl always says " IF I HAVE MR SIM AS MY PHYSICS TUTOR FROM JC1, I WILL HAVE NO PROBLEM IN GETTING A.HE IS DAMN GOOD" In conclusion, I will STRONGLY recommend him to anyone who needs Physics tuition.

The Physics Cafe really helped me a lot on improving my physics. From not being clear with the concepts to know exactly what the question is trying to test. I am really fortunate to be able to attend classes in the Physics Cafe to know more about physics and the fun of it ! The main difference between lessons in The Physics Cafe as compared to school and other tuition center is its thoroughly summarized notes with clearly defined concepts. Most importantly, Mr Sim has the ability to analyze and explain the question and concepts in a much more simpler way that makes answering question much easier. He is also able to give interesting examples to help us imagine the scenario to understand better! I will definitely recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe! It's really beneficial ! I would also like to thank Mr Sim for being such an awesome physics tutor and for all the things and efforts you have done for us. Thank you so much !

HELLO MR SIM!!!

Being a DSA student, I’m heavily committed with my CCA. As a result, a huge portion of my time has to be allocated to training sessions. I found it difficult to juggle between studies and CCA. I started attending the Physics Café in the hope of being able to pull my grades up. The Physics Café provides a systematic way of studying and answering questions. It helped us develop a clearer and deeper appreciation for the subject. Because of this unique way of learning physics, I felt that the studying process was a lot faster! Thank you MDS!

I was really bad at physics (Averaging around S or E?) all the way till my J2 mid years where I improved significantly after attending the june holiday crash course where Mr Sim showed me how to solve physics problems in ways which I never considered before. He managed to make physics really fun and easy for me and I eventually managed to get good results at A levels which was a feat I never thought I could achieve. I was that bad at physics! His notes were really useful, comprehensive but short enough so that it does not become a turnoff and it was really handy to refer to before the start of the physics paper. Thank you Mr Sim for being my physics tutor!!

Mr Sim’s physics notes are excellent as he is able to present the main concepts in a topic in a clear, concise and compartmentalised way that does not breed confusion like the way some of the lecture notes do. This is especially important in the subject of Physics at the ‘A’ levels as a logical, systematic train of thought is fundamental to understanding multi-faceted physics concepts. His Logical Problem Solving system of thought is extremely effective in solving complex physics questions by providing a step-by-step guideline that is applicable to almost any physics question. Mr Sim’s unique and hilarious style of teaching is very effectual in getting the points and concepts across to his students. His ability of using familiar examples from everyday life to explain obscure physics concepts (like semiconductors and quantum physics) are especially effectively and memorable.

For me, Mr Dave Sim has been like a friend, albeit a very smart one, who was always there when I needed help. He doesn't give you the impression that typical teachers give (think: uncaring and unconcerned). I think this trait of his makes attending his lessons an immense joy. That aside, I would say that he is really very strong in his physics concepts, which diffused over to me via his super effective teaching style. The method that he teaches does not involve anything complex, and hence, there is no need to memorise much (except for definitions of physics terms, a requirement that no one can escape from). As a result, my physics results shot up from class average to one of the top. I would say, my concepts are so good now that this subject has become a breeze to me. In addition, Mr Sim, gives out great notes (something he's proud of too)! You only need to browse through these notes before the exams to sufficiently refresh your concepts. 5 stars! I think the tuition fees were totally worth the value that I got out of this experience. Thanks Mr Sim!

I studied IB Physics [HL] with Mr. Sim in the months leading up to my final exams. Before I started with Mr. Sim, Physics lessons at school didn't make much sense; concepts were disconnected and poorly organized, and were pitched a level that went way over our heads. My teacher told me, frankly, that he didn't expect me to do well. After just five months with Mr. Sim, though, I got the best possible score for my final exam of 7 points. Mr. Sim is a dedicated teacher, who was determined to give me as much time as I needed to do well. He has full confidence in his students' ability as well as his own, which inspires even the most unenthusiastic students. This confidence is not uncalled for; my friends and I showed a rapid and marked improvement in our test results even after just a few sessions! His notes are concise and well-explained; his unique and problem-solving-based approach ensures that the student understands the reasoning behind the Physics, and he tailors his style for each student. And not only is he capable, he's nice as well; he has a great sense of humour and boundless patience. He fielded even my most inane questions with perseverance. His ability to explain concepts from multiple angles allowed him to clarify questions that continued to trouble me, as opposed to a lot of the teachers out there who just keep repeating themselves until the student gives up and pretends to understand! He's also well versed in the tips and tricks of question setting, and is able to advise his students on common mistakes and even some of the more unusual ones, which was miraculously useful for our very tricky final paper. Thanks, Mr. Sim, for putting the sense in science.

Mr Sim is a very dedicated teacher who has the rare ability to teach physics in a concise, clear approach. Physics has never been easy for me to grasp. But after joining Mr Sim for close to 2 years, i have been taught again and again the key concepts of each topic. Once you have grasped these major concepts in a topic (1-2 concepts at most), things become much easier and the topic becomes less and less daunting. Keeping in mind that the entire physics syllabus only comprises of 20 topics (spread across 2 years), physics with Mr Sim is actually not a difficult subject after all. That being said, Mr Sim's lessons are the perfect complements to lessons in school. In fact, any of his students will say that they've got the edge over their peers in school because of the materials Mr Sim provides and also of the techniques taught in understanding and answering questions. Overall, I highly encourage my juniors to learn physics from mrsim, not only because he is a driven teacher who is 100% dedicated to help his students achieve the A, but also because learning physics as an A level student under his guidance has been a worry-free and engaging experience.

I think the notes The Physics Cafe has made for problem solving are extremely useful. It much better the flipping through my large stack of notes. 10 min of flipping through helps me refresh all my formulas and solving methods and I am ready for a test within 10 minutes. The lesson here is more organized, systematic as compared to that in school. It's faster paced, has good examples and experiments/ diagrams used by Mr Sim to aid our learning, something the school does not use. Lastly, the mind map helps to get hold of the chapter in a gist so absorbing information is less tedious than reading all the lecture material. Lastly the lecturers include too much information that they say is out of syllabus in our notes, making it even more wordy and difficult to understand. Definitely, for anyone who needs help in physics this is the place to go! Mr Sim is a wonderful teacher to learn from and the methods he uses to make us understand physics concepts is unique. I am studying hard, Mr Sim to make my grades a reality, I won't disappoint you!

The Physics Cafe has been very useful for me! Before joining The Physics Cafe, the thought of doing Physics intimidated me but Mr Sim made solving the toughest of problems rather manageable. He also drilled us on essential concepts and helped us identify possible ways that Cambridge can trick us and all these have definitely improved my problem solving techniques by leaps and bounds. I would definitely recommend my juniors to join.

The physics cafe has not only helped me in understanding the physics concepts better, but also gain more interest in the subject. With the summarized mind maps and grade A questions, it makes me more confident in tackling higher ordered questions. After attending the physics cafe, i find it much easier to follow tutorials and lectures in school as I already have a strong foundation from the tuition. I would definitely recommend my friends to join.

The notes The Physics Cafe had prepared for each student comes in a form of booklet which had concise summary for each topic and ways to approach questions that could be set with the topics. That booklet is definitely useful and integral in my revision for my Physics examinations. In addition, Mr Sim is passionate about what he is teaching and enable the more complex Physics topics to be understood easily by the students. He just somehow is able to align our thoughts towards the different topics, and this is something which my school teachers rarely do so. I would definitely recommend my friends to join The Physics Cafe! For friends who are relatively weak or strong in Physics alike, I would still recommend them to attend The Physics Cafe classes because the classes certainly would help to align our thoughts in a certain way towards Physics.

Mr Dave Sim is an amazing physics teacher who is able to explain Physics theories and concepts in ways that we were able to easily understand. His physics notes were useful, especially the summary booklet we received during the June workshop. They were clear, concise and most importantly, have the most essential concepts and answering techniques for each topic summarized in A5 booklets which came in really handy. Mr Sim also has his way of encouraging his students to do better and was always sending us emails and texts to motivate us. I've always been bad at Physics especially since the start of my J2 year. After joining the physics tuition class in May, I saw myself improving gradually over the months and surprisingly also found myself developing an interest in the subject ( I really used to hate Physics!). All in all I'm really thankful to have had Mr Sim as my Physics tutor and if I were to choose again, The Physics cafe would still be my choice. (:

HELLO MR SIM!!! here's a tribute to you! You're seriously, seriously the most awesomest coolest physics teacher I ever had. After you took over I never skipped a single day where there was physics cos every lesson was really really important and helped me a lot. I think you were meant to be a teacher all along: you have the seemingly effortless gift of making students understand concepts even though you sound like you're just teaching normally most of the time. So I guess it's good you stopped being an engineer in the field of p and n type objects and depleted layers. And you have no temper at all haha, and I'm really grateful for the amount of patience you have when teaching my class. And of course, there's those insanely amusing and funny times you shared with my class. I swear I've never laughed so much or been so happy in a freaking lesson before (of course GP is the exception but that's cos I'm biased towards GP) I think i'll miss physics lessons a lot. haha. Happy teachers' day! (albeit a rather belated one) It's because of teachers like you that I finally see how important teachers are. I do think your learning I'm pretty sure this batch will help spread this reputation too.

Mr Dave Sim is quite simply, the best Physics teacher that I have ever had in the past 18 years of my life! The key feature distinguishing Mr Sim from the rest of the physics teachers that I have been exposed to is the unique personal connection that he develops with his students. His heart and soul for teaching translates into improved results and passion from his students, and his unique ability to understand a student's needs complements his incredible explanation and teaching skills. He is not your ordinary run of the mill teacher, he is an inspiring person who can actually teach Physics. He has made Physics an interesting and enjoyable subject and I have never felt such excitement going for Physics lessons which are both enjoyable and productive, something which is indeed difficult to find in teachers. No regrets! :)

I got to know about The Physics Cafe and enrolled in it when I was in J1. From the start, Mr Dave Sim really helped to clear the conceptual errors I had in Physics and thus made the learning and solving problems a lot easier. His teaching style also made lessons more interesting and engaging. Mr.Sim is very approachable when we have any questions or queries and almost always stays back after the lesson to help us with our problems. I would definitely recommend new junior college students to come to The Physics Cafe!

I used to fail physics and hate physics. During everyday exams regardless if it is a major or minor one, physics is the last subject I want to study. After attending physics cafe, I no longer dread revising for physics. Putting my school notes aside, i only have to rely on mr sim's notes and practice papers.

The best aspect about Mr Dave Sim, is that he is a caring and concerned tutor. Always looking for ways to improve his teaching, he has inspired me to learn physics at a higher level in university. Always helping us out when we need, and joking with us often, learning under him was a pleasure. Besides physics, he taught us magic. I was touched by his love for magic, physics and teachin. thank you sir. i really looked up to you as a role model. wish you all the best in your dream job, but the future rj students are just unlucky if u decided to quit rj.

I think Mr Sim's notes are extremely concise and to the point. They highlight the most important parts of each chapter, and sieve out the redundant information. His notes also provides many examples which allows me to get familiar with using whatever knowledge i have learned straight away, so that i will remember it better. His lessons are always interesting, and he knows how to joke from time to time. His teaching method is very heavily oriented towards making you score well for physics, and though he does not usually talk much about the story of the theory, he produces results. Also, his lessons are well prepared and his use of animations and applets to help me learn are very appropriate. All in all, he is the one of the best, if not THE best physics teachers i have ever known.

Physics finally makes sense (:

The notes are comprehensive, and summarised, with all the basics you need to know, and questions that serve to strengthen knowledge of basic concepts. Also questions are organised in such a way that students that we are able to see a pattern to tackle the different kinds of questions, and the concepts that are commonly tested. The best part about the teaching is that complicated physics jargon isn't used to explain already complicated physics concepts. Mr Sim uses simple terms to explain the seemingly complicated concepts and even answers complicated questions simply so that we understand. In short, he creates the 'Ohhhhhh..' effect, where through his explanation, something we thought was very difficult suddenly becomes so much clearer, making us go 'Ohhhhh..'
