This Guy Really Knows His Stuff

I’m so thankful I found Physics Tuition because I just know I would have never made it through school otherwise. In this country, dropping out of school is a situation to be avoided at all costs. I imagine that’s the case in most places, but here in Singapore the working environment is so hyper competitive that you simply won’t find a job anywhere without the required credentials. Want to work in the medical field? You better have that degree. In finance? You need the degree. Even working in an office pretty much calls for a degree in something relevant to the working conditions.

My problem is that I’m pretty good at science so I wanted to go into the medical field. I only have one real Achilles’ heel and that is Physics. I’ve just never been able to wrap my mind around the concepts. I can even handle most of the math involved, but it’s the conceptual ideas that my mind simply can’t grasp. I can’t understand how the math applies to the theory, in other words. I’ve tried everything short of summoning the spirit of Albert Einstein in order to understand this stuff and it just didn’t work.

The problem is that I needed to pass a couple of these classes to move on in my degree. My father helped find a tutor who could stuff my head with the knowledge required to pass the courses. The one we employed turned out to be one of the most amazing teachers I’ve ever met. Not only does he know what you’ll need to pass the courses, he’s able to make you understand the topic fully. I actually understand the underlying concepts now and feel totally confident that I can pass those exams while still understanding the material. Who knew Physics is actually a fascinating topic?
