National Institute of Education (NIE) Singapore, specialising in Curriculum and Teaching in order to augment his teaching and pedagogy as an A level H2 Physics tutor

In his teaching, Mr Cai strongly believes that A Level Physics cannot be learned simply through the rote memorisation of formulas, but that students need to see the concepts in real “action” and day to day examples in order to gain a deeper and more meaningful understanding.

Drawing from his own experiences and knowledge of students’ different learning styles, he incorporates various features of the University Scholars Programme and Gifted Education Programme in his tuition classes to help his students understand Physics through a rigorous multi-modal programme that is at the same time enjoyable and horizon-expanding.

He also imparts to his students mnemonic techniques and question tackling skills that have helped many of his past students to achieve excellent grades and tremendous improvements, a testament to his value-add as an A level H2 physics tutor.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” Without doubt, Mr. Cai. is the one who inspired me.
