Dr. Aaron Tan
JC Physics Tutor, Learners’ Lodge
Dr Aaron Tan received the B.Eng. and PhD from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. He was also a research scholar during his undergraduate studies and received the EDB joint industry postgraduate scholarship to further his interest in applied research. He published numerous conference and journal research papers and also guided students on their final year projects.
He sat in the Non-Academic Achievements interview panel in NTU EEE and was a student-advisor for an outreach programme involved with planning and conducting engineering-related workshops for JC students in Singapore. From 2008 to 2018, he was a contract teacher with the Singapore Sports School as an academic tutor for Math and Physics and since 2011, he has been teaching H2 Physics and helped many students from different JC to improve their understanding as well as grades. With years of industry applications and experience under his belt, he provides examples in class to help students to appreciate concepts.
He guides students in exploring Physics by identifying facts and evidence from observations or questions and then relating them with concepts before building the mathematical models to solve the problems. He encourages them to always ask “Why” and “How” as he believes that an inquisitive mind goes a long way not just in Physics but also in future academic or career pursuits.
H2 Physics was a subject I was worried about upon entering JC, as it had been a weaker topic in Secondary School. I decided to join Learners’ Lodge’s tuition class, and it was a lifechanging decision. The tutor explained concepts very well, ensuring that I have a clear understanding of the fundamental and advanced concepts of each topic, while also making lessons funny. He has inspired me to find the beauty in physics, not only pushing me to score my As in internal exams, but also motivating me to take up H3 Physics.
You are a great teacher: organised, responsive, patient and able to clearly explain complex topics and nuances. Thank you so much for being a teacher that cares for each individual student. I have been so blessed by your encouragement and willingness to help me fully grasp the material. You have made my learning experience easier and I have never felt so supported by a teacher, especially because I’m quite shy but you have taken a step towards ensuring that I’m following along throughout the lecture and revision process.
The Physics tutor in Learners’ Lodge explained concepts very well and in a way that is very digestible and easy to understand. He is very caring because he makes sure every single student fully grasp and understand before he moves on. He will always be patient when students ask him questions and is very willing to answer any questions regarding physic. He is willing to sacrifice the short breaks between/before lesson to answer questions and I appreciate that a lot. He also checks up on us after each exam and genuinely cares about us. Thanks to him, I can really feel that my understanding for physics have improved significantly and from j1 to j2 my grades have jumped from an S to a B.
