What are Some Challenges Which O-level Physics Learners Face?

1. Visualizing Concepts: Visualizing something means that you can picture information or material in your mind. Typically, this is taking words and turning them into a mental image. This is a difficult task for many learners.

2. Understanding and Explaining Clearly: Physics is a challenging subject. Many students struggle to grasp specific concepts. If physics concepts and formulas are not understood correctly, then students will not be able to clearly explain their solutions to problems.

3. Poor memorisation: Memorizing formulas, units, and conversions can be a challenge for many students. Oftentimes, students have been taught concepts but never been required to memorize them.

4. Struggle to Memorize: Not only have some students not been required to memorize physics material but they are not taught strategies and techniques to easily memorize and recall material.

5. Confusion over What to Use in Calculations: One of the biggest struggles with physics calculations is deciding what data and values to use within a calculation. Getting the inputs wrong can make or break your calculations.

6. Forgetting to Convert: When making calculations in physics, students may struggle with remembering to convert base/SI units. This mistake will of course then throw off your entire calculation.

7. Poor Math Foundations: If students come into physics forgetting or not being strong in foundational math, they will struggle through O Level Physics. Some of the foundational math that is needed for physics includes trigonometry and graphs. If you need a maths tutor, we can help too!

8. Poor Practical Assessment Skills: Though students are required through all levels of school to take assessments, they frequently do not know best practices for test taking.

9. Poor Exam Time Management: Another exam skill that is not taught is time management. Students struggle with determining how long they need to spend on each question in the allotted time they are given. This can cause students to rush some questions or to not finish an exam.

What are the Qualities I Need to Look for in a O-level Physics Tutor?

When you begin looking at potential O Level Physics tutors, there are a few characteristics that you need to pay attention to in order to ensure that you have the most capable and compatible tutor for your needs.


You first need to look and make sure that the tutor has knowledge and experience in physics. Start by looking to see if they are a qualified teacher in physics and how long they have been teaching the subject. This will let you know that the tutor has familiarity in helping students understand physics concepts and preparing for the O Levels.

You can also look for the tutor’s personal academic grades. Those tutors who have high scores on O Levels and A Levels Physics will have the capable to teach the material.

Make sure that you know which syllabus your tutor is more versed or knowledgeable in. There is a difference between the Pure Physics syllabus and the Combined Physics syllabus. So, this needs to be part of your consideration when finding a tutor.

Ability to Provide Notes

A physics tutor should be able to provide additional physics notes as well as practice papers that they have completed in previous years. These materials can be beneficial in helping prepare for O Levels. These can help by giving students exposure to different types of questions. This exposure will give students practice answering all types of questions while they have guidance to work through these questions.

Familiarity with the Syllabus

The O level physics tutor that you choose needs to be familiar and confident with the current MOE Syllabus. There have been changes to the syllabus over the years, your tutor needs to be aware of these changes and be working based on the current version. This is why it is important to know if your tutor has or is teaching Physics or has taken the Physics O Level in recent years. If they are teaching it or have taken the exam in recent years, they should be familiar and have a mastery of the syllabus.

Commitment to Learning

Your physics tutor needs to me committed to your personal learning process. There have been occasions of tutoring constantly changing scheduled classes or cancelling their tuition term halfway through. Before you begin working with a tutor, check reviews for the tutor you are looking at. Also, make sure that all time slots, duration of tuition, and expectations are clear for the tutor and the student before you begin.

Ability to Help Find Weak Areas

Considering the ability of the tutor to find your weak areas and target them is important because you do not want to waste time. There is a limited amount of time when preparing for O Levels and you want to make sure that your studying and work focuses on the areas that you need help in the most. One way to check to see if the tutor is capable of targeting weak spots is to look at the improvements of their former students.


Even from looking at all the other information provided about a tutor, it can be hard to tell if they will be the best and safest fit for you. By reading testimonials from former students, you can get a sense of the tutors strengths, capabilities, and knowledge. You will also be advised about which tutors are the best for O Level Physics tuition based on these reviews. Reviews will assure you that the tutor is safe since they will be working one on one with your student and will be in your home.

Why is it Important to Get a O-level Physics Tutor?

Having an O Level Physics tutor is beneficial and can help you master physics before moving on to the next level and preparing you for a variety of job opportunities in the future.

Physics syllabuses across educational levels build upon one another and are connected. By scoring well in O Level Physics, you will have a better and smoother transition in to A Level Physics. And thinking beyond just the next level, physics is a prerequisite for many diplomas and degrees. This means that you have to take physics before you earn a degree in areas like medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences and more. Scoring well on O Levels Physics will help better prepare you and increase your chances of getting into these programs.

Physics will also help to build your critical thinking skills as well as your mathematical, logical and analytical skills. All of these skills are importantly to be successful in other courses. Many of these skills are required in a variety of fields and careers and physics can help build a good base for learning these skills.

Physics concepts can be very difficult to grasp on your own. Physics oftentimes deals with concepts that are “invisible,” such as Forces and Energy. Because of this, having an experienced O Level Tutor can help you navigate through these difficulties and provide strategies so you can understand and visualize these concepts.

Understanding physics will also give you an understanding of how things work and move. This includes things like forces, electricity, and waves. With this foundational understanding, you will be able to understand technological advancements as well as the operations of computers, cameras, and drones.

Final Thoughts

Finding a tutor through Tutor City will provide you all the information that you need when looking for an O Level Physics tutor. A good secondary Physics tutor can help deepen your understanding of physics and provide the one on one instruction that you need to meet the required marks for your O Levels

I was looking for a Maths tutor in May this year for my daughter who was in Sec 2. She has been failing her Maths since Sec 1 and is really in need of help. My preference is someone who stays in the same neighbourhood for ease of travel and of course, good in Maths. Davis is quick to respond and recommended Ms Celine. Thank you Davis for connecting us. Ms Celine has done a great job with her teaching methods. My daughter scored an A2 for the final year exam which is a vast improvement. Ms Celine, you are a gem! Here’s a review from the tutee for her tutor: She went through all the chapters in the textbooks and taught me whatever concepts I did not understand. She also focused more on my weaker topics until she felt that I mastered them. When she finished all the chapters and I had mastered them, we only did practice papers until exams came. She also provided extra tuition near the exam days. Overall, she has really helped me improved and she is not strict and working with her was fun :)
