‘Mr Ram is an exceptional physics teacher who excels in simplifying complex concepts. His explanations are clear, making even the most challenging formulas easy to understand and recreate or re-derive. His notes are brilliant, providing a concise summary of key concepts and definitions. He uses diagrams which enhances comprehension, making difficult topics much simpler. He focuses on teaching what is essential, ensuring that I was well-prepared and know only what I needed to know. His teaching style is very clear and descriptive. His teaching allowed me to go from a U to an A by not rote memorisation but also understanding and appreciation of the subject. Overall, Mr Ram is a fantastic teacher who greatly aided in my love for and success in H2 Physics.’

-Aasim, YIJC

‘Mr Ram is a passionate teacher who can come up with ways to make the lesson more interesting for the students. During lessons, he explains in the simplest way possible such that everyone is able to understand each concept taught clearly. If not, he is always happy to take time off to answer his students’ questions. The questions that he compiled from past year A levels and JC papers for each topic really helped me strengthen my concepts and they serve as a useful tool for revision. As I came into the tuition with a weak foundation, I realised that with the help of his notes and explanations my conceptual understanding of several topics is way better now. Mr Ram is truly a dedicated teacher and I have enjoyed all my lessons with him.’

Sze Yu, HCI

'Mr Ram was the best help I could ask for. Despite having a weak foundation due to taking combined sciences, he helped me to bridge the gap and grasp the concepts efficiently. On top of class, he went out of his way to spend extra time and often clarify my doubts. I am extremely appreciative for all the help that he has given me.’ 

Neill Soloman, Temasek JC

‘Mr Ram is an exceptional teacher who always explains and conveys concepts clearly. He would also reply to our WhatsApp questions with detailed workings and answers to ensure we understand. His lessons were also planned so that we could retain the information easily. His lessons were always interesting and unique, and I enjoyed learning from him.’

Poon Heem Tuck, CJC

As a student who always struggled with understanding physics concepts, Mr Ram was a very incredibly skilled and knowledgeable teacher who has helped me to excel in JC H2 Physics, despite having taken combined science in secondary school. His methods and shortcut techniques were of immense help in examinations.

‘I wanna thank Mr Ram for his unwavering support for his weaker students and continuously pushing us to do more practices. I also wanna thank him for always staying back after class to answer my questions even if some of them could be confusing. Mr Ram does a really great job in pointing out details that could be easily missed in our schools and clarifying them. I wanna say that his material resources and his books are really amazing. He gave us the opportunity to attempt older physics questions that are beyond TYS.’
