Our online courses include notes and worksheets that can be printed out.
There are videos explaining the concepts, and the solutions to all the questions on the worksheets.

Student A joins a live tuition class in January. We go over Newton’s Third Law of Motion. He understands. Then he has his first test two months later in March. He needs to hear the explanation again, preferably a day or two before the test. So it will be fresh in his mind how to phrase the explanation and he can be reminded of the kinds of questions where he needs to apply the concept. The topic comes up again on his midyear in May, again on his end of year exam in September, and yet again, a year later, when he takes the O-Level or a standardized exam. There is no expiration date for the online courses on the platform we are using. You pay only once for the course (there is no monthly subscription) and you have it whenever you need it.
Student B has a history test on Friday morning at 9:00AM. It is Thursday after school and she really wants to study history. But she has physics tuition today and it is a topic that she does not really understand yet, and it will take up a lot of her brain power. But her physics test is next Monday, not tomorrow. She will have plenty of time over the weekend to study her physics, but right now she would rather not even think about it, because her history grade is on the line tomorrow. School seems so stressful.
If she is using online courses, she can study history at the time when she needs and study physics at the time when she needs.
How many times has a parent had to juggle their child’s schedule? A tennis match was rescheduled to conflict with math tuition. The school scheduled remedial chemistry lessons at the last minute, which now conflicts with english tuition. And the student has travel time to all the various lessons. We used to joke that for some children, the mom was their PA (personal assistant), with a part time job of handling their schedule and transportation.
Our online courses can be viewed on mobile devices, so if a student has a 30 minute bus ride, and they really need to revise on the topic of Kinematics, they can do so.
If you are going to invest your time and money into improving your education, it makes sense to be learning from someone who is very effective, can communicate well, and can really help you both improve your grades and really understand the topic properly. You can check out our testimonials page which contains a lot of comments from parents and students over the years I have done live tutoring. After doing the live classes and running a tutoring center, I have a good feel for what students really need help with. I have packed all of this experience into my materials and video presentations.
The printable notes and worksheets and the videos that are provided with each topic represent in most cases what would take me at least 2 lessons to cover if I were doing live tutoring. If you follow the links from this webpage, you will get discounted prices, and it ends up being only 10% of what we used to charge when we ran our tutoring center.
One thing that used to bother me was that some of our potential customers just couldn’t afford the lessons, but I knew the student would really benefit from them. Now we can offer the material at a much lower cost, making it more affordable for a larger number of people.
So whether you want to replace live tuition with the online courses, or just want to give a couple of topics a try to see if this style of learning fits you, I think you will find these resources to be of excellent quality and worthwhile. I wish you the best of success in your studies!
Master of Science Physics
Ph.D. Electrical Engineering
The results of his O-Level students for the year 2010-2015 were excellent with over 90% of students getting A’s and B’s.
Daniel also has 5 years of teaching experience in the USA. He taught at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida and at the University of Central Florida, in Orlando. He has published research in Lasers, Solar Energy and Semiconductors.
Daniel also had a 14 year career in the semiconductor industry, so he has a very practical way of delivering his lessons.
Daniel and Robert have published several books together. Physics for the Utterly Confused and Calculus for the Utterly Confused were both published by McGraw-Hill and are available in bookstores such as Borders and Barnes and Noble.
A more advanced publication with McGraw-Hill is How to Solve Physics Problems. This book goes into greater depth and is written for University level students majoring in physics or engineering.
Daniel has also written his own materials for the online classes. His experience in writing for major publishers has helped him to produce professional quality material.
We use a variety of Proven Methods which Produce Excellent RESULTS
We want students to understand the important concepts of science, not to memorize them. Part of education is taking the students through the process of making sense out of things. Then they learn to use this approach in all of their learning. They rely on the ability they have developed to understand things, rather than relying on memory. In order to establish good understanding, a student first needs good clear explanations from a teacher who knows the material well and is good at explaining things.
There are categories of problems in science, meaning problems that require a similar approach to solving. We build the student’s problem solving skills, so that they can recognize the type of problem and use a methodical approach to get the answer.
The reality is that students are measured by how well they do on their school tests and on standardized tests such as O-Level, A-Level and IB exams. In every course we do practice test questions taken from schools and/or the standardized exams. Students are coached on how to most effectively answer their exam questions.
Students need to see the connection between what they are learning and the real world. This helps solidify their understanding and it can help them become interested and self-motivated to learn.
Among our students are top students in their class for the entire school year and achievers of A1 grades on the O-Level and A-Level. We also have many students who go from failing to getting A’s or B’s in their classes.
These skills are emphasised in our classes. We have many students who comment that they can now more fully understand their test questions and formulate written answers. They also have an improved ability to communicate both verbally and in writing.
Students who learn from by our method are able to retain what they have learned as they move from one level to the next. We avoid techniques that rely on short term memory and concentrate on building the skills that will benefit the student at the next level, and also enrich them in their careers as they go on in life. This is what education is supposed to be all about!
