The tutors are stars
Forget social media influencers and music chart-toppers. Follow stellar tutors to clinch A grades on your examination scripts.
Mr Dave Sim, the founder of The Physics Cafe and The Maths Cafe, taught physics for six years at a top junior colleague before going into private tuition in 2010.
He and his dedicated team of tutors conduct O- and A- level mathematics and physics tuition classes.
Last year, more than 80 per cent of students scored A grades at the physics and/or mathematics A level examinations. Nine out of ten students clinched distinctions in the physics and/or mathematics O level examinations.
Classes are currently conducted at Orange Tee Building near Toa Payoh MRT station and Bukit Timah Shopping Centre near Beauty World MRT station.
Two more branches will be opening soon — SingPost Centre mall near Paya Lebar MRT station and Goldhill Centre near Novena MRT station.
Develop academic mastery like never before
Students are typically pressed for time with busy schedules — Mr Sim and his team help students learn in a ruthlessly effective manner.
The team works well with comprehensive notes, excellent lesson delivery, timed practices during classes and recorded lessons for students to revisit at their own time.

The premises lives up to its name
Why is a tuition centre named a café? The branches have interiors mimicking a café where students perk themselves up with beverages from the free-for-all pantry.
Take a break and challenge your study buddies to a game of foosball.
Other than a well-stocked pantry cum in-house café, each branch has its own lecture theatre, study rooms, vending machine and digital library.
Thrills and frills
Need someone to attend to your administrative queries? Onsite student councillors, who are The Physics Cafe’s ex-students, will help you get what you need.
Get home easily with the shuttle bus services. All branches have shuttle buses ferrying students to the MRT stations of Botanic Gardens, Jurong East, Serangoon and Paya Lebar.
Fact : About a thousand students enrol in The Physics Cafe and The Maths Cafe yearly.
There will soon be two new branches at SingPost Centre mall near Paya Lebar MRT station and Goldhill Centre near Novena MRT station.
