Tee Xian Yang

PhD in Physics (2015)

BSc in Physics (1st Class Hons, 2009)

I am a physics tutor based in Singapore. I graduated with BSc and PhD degrees in Physics, both fully funded by scholarships. See my certificates.

I teach IB and JC physics, and have been offering 1-on-1 tuition over the years. Students may find physics a difficult subject despite the hard work and long hours they have put in. Sometimes they simply do not know where to start in the exam. My advice for students – It is essential to learn the subject from various perspectives of conceptual, mathematical, real-world scenario, personal experience, etc.

Let me assure you that physics can be learned and there are methods to do it well. Learn physics with me and I will guide you to grasp the subject quick. Reach me today to arrange for a free trial lesson!

A Graduate of Nanyang Technological University

Education

2015 – PhD in Physics

Nanyang Technological University

This is a 4-year programme where I was required to take advanced graduate-level physics modules and conduct my own research project. See my PhD Thesis. My PhD study was funded by NTU Research Scholarship.

2009 – BSc in Physics (1st Class Honours)

Nanyang Technological University

This is a 4-year programme covering the theoretical and applied physics modules. My degree study was funded by Nanyang Scholarship.

Teaching Experience

Since 2005 I have been actively teaching university classroom tutorial (10-30 pax tutorial) for various physics modules, as well as 1-on-1 coaching where junior students came to me with their tutorial questions on every Wednesday.

After my graduation in 2015, I started offering 1-on-1 physics tuition for International Baccalaureate (IB) and junior colleague (JC) physics students.

Research Experience

In 2011, I was visiting the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) for a few weeks. I met the professors and students there and exchanged ideas of physics.

In 2010, I was visiting the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) for a collaboration project using their High Energy X-ray Facilities.

2009-2014: Back in my home university (NTU), I spent days and night to develop and refine my ideas and research apparatus for physics experiments.
