I was able to put in my best effort for Physics with the help of Mr Yeo. He indeed is a very passionate and wonderful Physics teacher.    Closing Quotes

 

Wan Pei, Pioneer Junior College

 

Opening Quotes  I have never understood physics and its basic concepts during the first few months of JC1 until I went to Mr Yeo’s physics tuition. Mr Yeo is a very dedicated physics teacher who is willing to teach his students and made sure we understood the true essence of physics. The way he explains is fascinating and fun, he will crack jokes and tell stories once in a while and the time spent on reviewing the chapter’s overview was short but enough to capture the concepts which I found it very useful. He gives us valuable tips on Cambridge mark scheme and what they are looking for by his years of experience. After attending almost 1 and a half years of his class, I felt I have gained a lot and finally understood the basic concepts of physics. Mr Yeo is a very approachable teacher, and I have benefited from him. He is one of the best and most passionate teachers I have come across.
Thank You, Mr Yeo!

It has certainly sparked my interest in physics in the real world.

Mr Yeo prepares his notes and revises them to make sure they are up to date on the syllabus and apt for examinations. Summary notes are provided to allow fast recap before exams and ensure all key points are addressed.

Besides imparting knowledge, Mr Yeo has also played the role as a pillar of support to all his students. He would inject confidence in you; encourage you to break your limit slowly but surely guiding us to our goal. He gives valuable assessment base on your class and school performance and ways to improve after that.

A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instil a love of learning. Mr Yeo is more than a good teacher.    Closing Quotes

 

Rachael Chua, Meridian Junior College

 

Opening Quotes  I joined Mr Yeo’s JC Physics tuition class about six months before the A-level examinations; his lessons revolve mainly around practice questions, which are very helpful. Also, he encourages us to share our misconceptions and weaknesses with the class before clarifying them; this allowed me to learn what mistakes people tend to make and learn from them as well.

Mr Yeo made H2 Physics very interesting as he always linked concepts to real-world applications which are not seen in school notes. More importantly, like all good teachers, Mr Yeo has a great passion for physics, which influenced me to like it as well. The lesson pace is also very suited for all students as he would help the weaker students and push the stronger ones to improve further. His commitment to teaching also shows when he stays back after each lesson to listen to our questions.

He helped me in this subject by imparting both his knowledge and passion for physics to me. Thank you, Mr Yeo!    Closing Quotes

He is a teacher who can relate well to his students, therefore allowing me to feel at ease to ask questions, no matter how simple they were. His lessons are well planned and engaging and he can help students who learn at a slower pace too.

Before attending Mr Yeo’s lessons, I studied physics by memorising formulas and by doing many practices. However, he taught me the importance of understanding the concepts and learning to apply them to different questions. His teaching has helped me improve tremendously from struggling to pass in school to an ‘A’ at A Levels.

I am fortunate to have had Mr Yeo as my tutor and he is very encouraging and inspires us to do something we truly enjoy in future. Thank you, Mr Yeo!    Closing Quotes

 

Lee Ying Ting, Hwa Chong Institution

 

Opening Quotes  Mr Daniel Yeo is one of the best teachers I have known. He is a very dedicated and experienced teacher, who often stays behind after class to explain the tough physics concepts to me. Before joining Mr Yeo’s class, I was confused with the complex concepts and ideas behind those topics taught in H2 Physics. Mr Yeo can break down these complicated concepts and explain them in a simplified manner which makes learning Physics much easier and less arduous.

Mr Daniel Yeo is a dedicated teacher who does not hesitate to stay behind after every lesson to explain the Physics concepts behind every equation and Physics law. As a slow learner, I appreciate his help and dedication. He takes great care to answer our every doubt in detail and does not mind explaining specific concepts over and over again until we understood everything.

I found his summarised notes extremely helpful, with all the essential concepts, equations and definitions neatly presented in bite-sized pieces which is much easier to digest. They come in handy before major tests and examinations where time is of the essence, making my learning journey much more enjoyable.

My Physics journey is akin to a marathon, and Mr Daniel Yeo served as a great coach, helping me up when I fall, cheering me on when I needed them most, and assisting me to overcome any hurdles that I faced. I am thankful to have him as my Physics tutor, who is an exceptional teacher and an excellent mentor.    Closing Quotes

 

Jonathon Phua, Hwa Chong Institution

 

Opening Quotes  Physics has always been an elusive subject for me. Contrary to popular opinion where “you just got to understand how it works and everything will just flow from there”, my two year H2 physics journey has honestly proven otherwise. Up till my promotional exams in J1, I still did not know precisely what was going on in class. Every single time I tried to apply the concepts taught after an intensive self-study session or sitting through a lecture with my ears pricked up, I would ALWAYS end up at this point where the answer to the question defies my train of thought. Disappointment ensues, and the interest in physics dwindles with my self-confidence. They say reward correlates with the amount of effort put in, but to me, it has never been that way.

Physics has completed defeated me. I loathed every single bit of it. I even considered retaining so that I could change my subject combination. Because to me, hard work never pays off on this subject. If you were to tell me that I would eventually come to score an A in the A-Levels, in no way would I have believed you. I have never gotten anywhere above a ‘D’, let alone a distinction. Desperate, I consulted this “super physics tutor” who swears by his “condensed yet concise notes”, “step-by-step teaching methods” and more importantly a “93% distinction”. Surprisingly, it did not work for me AT ALL. To each his own, I suppose. His methods aren’t as useful for people like me who require explaining-all-over-again whenever there is a lapse in my application, nor do his one-page summaries which were supposed to prompt a jolt in memory and bring the student back to the concepts taught in the tuition class. I hit rock-bottom when after six months of tuition I still could not sit through a test without doubting every single answer I wrote after preparing so hard. Of course, I failed them all. I left the centre after promos.

Miraculously, I managed to promote. In J2, a while after school re-opened, a close friend of mine introduced me to Mr Yeo, citing him for his tremendous patience and exuberance. I joined, NEVER to expect the change this teacher was about to bring to my life. You see, at that time, my self-confidence was in shambles; so is my attitude towards learning physics. I still remember the fateful Wednesday evening when I first met him. He walked into the classroom, greeted me and asked about my results. I told him that I honestly did not think it will get any better and I will just resign to fate. He laughed, said to me that everything will be fine and that he is always there whenever I need help.

He is so much more than someone whose duty is to explain theories to a bunch of eager-eyed students and making sure they internalise them. What sets him apart from the rest is that he genuinely cares about the well-being of every student. He was always there when I needed help. He believed in me when I all I could do was to doubt myself. He took the time to care, and not only that; he made sure that I KNEW he cared. Not only was he good at teaching and explaining physics (not to mention his all-rounded comprehensive notes), he was good at the personality he reflected – inspiring, motivated, passionate. That, honestly, made all the difference.

I hate to sound all cheesy and corny, but I would not be where I am now if not for Mr Daniel Yeo. They say whenever God shuts a door, somewhere he opens another window. For me, god closed ALL the doors and left a window open which I am so tremendously lucky to have chanced upon during the darkest hours of my JC life. Thank you, Mr Yeo, not only for the ‘A’, but more importantly for what you have inspired me as a person. You will always remain my role model.    Closing Quotes

Not only was he good at teaching and explaining physics (not to mention his all-rounded comprehensive notes), he was good at the personality he reflected – inspiring, motivated, passionate. That, honestly, made all the difference.

I hate to sound all cheesy and corny, but I would not be where I am now if not for Mr Daniel Yeo. They say whenever God shuts a door, somewhere he opens another window. For me, god closed ALL the doors and left a window open which I am so tremendously lucky to have chanced upon during the darkest hours of my JC life. Thank you, Mr Yeo, not only for the ‘A’, but more importantly for what you have inspired me as a person. You will always remain my role model.    Closing Quotes
