Physics is known as the “King of sciences”. It can explain phenomena as diverse as motion of planets and nature of black holes to why certain sounds are pleasant to the ear and why your attempts at violin playing make enemies out of your neighbours.
IB Physics is an introductory high school course which covers the basics of physics in a fun and enlightening manner. Focus is placed on teaching students how to apply physical concepts to everyday life. Like other IB Subjects, IB Physics tries to bring about the global dimension of physics by introducing topics like climate change that require global efforts to be successfully controlled. Physics, like all other science subjects, can illustrate how Theory of Knowledge is applied and used in real life. IB Physics goes to great lengths to make these links clear.
IB Physics can be undertaken at both SL (Standard level) and HL (Higher level). According to IB physics guide, students with no previous exposure to a subject should be able to handle a SL subject but will find it difficult to adjust if they take HL.
At student’s Inn, we prepare students for examination regardless of their previous exposure. Through a regime of intensive coaching and practice through propriety material, we are able to not only bring about improvements in grades but also develop interest in the subject. IB Tuition in Singapore is not a very competitive business. Due to the practical nature of IB Physics, the teacher not only needs a thorough understanding of the subject but also of the IB Syllabus. The syllabus structure ensures that normal physics graduates who have not gone through appropriate training for tutoring IB syllabus will not be able to teach the subject.
Student’s Inn approach to teach IB physics is simple. Our tutors go over the basic concepts and illustrate them through examples to enhance understanding of the subject. During tuition, important and more frequently tested ideas are highlighted and the types of questions generally asked are practiced. Focus is placed on appropriate physics terminology and ways of tackling different types of questions. After the session, a good mix of questions from IB question banks and our own material is given to the students to crystallize the concepts and to prepare them for their IB exams. The concepts are then revised in later classes and if anything is found wanting in student’s understanding, the entire process is repeated. The lesson is conducted in a fun and engaging manner to increase aptitude and interest in the subject.
We hold both regular and ad hoc sessions. Students have the choice of joining group classes to make learning a group experience or opting for an individual lesson to get more focused attention. We also help our students with Group 4 project and physics investigations.
So, in a nutshell, Student’s Inn aims to:
- Develop an understanding of essential physics concepts
- Enhance the ability to approach problems in a disciplined and appropriate manner
- Ingrain time management skills to ensure appropriate revision before the exams
- Develop lifelong interest in Physics which makes learning fun and easy
Students are provided with:
- Concise but comprehensive notes for the core as well as the options
- Ample practice questions to enhance learning
- Access to comprehensive support system and resources.
