About Me:

I’m passionate and driven about teaching my students Physics in a simple, concise yet interesting way! I’m always ready to give my all for my kids! Which is why I make it a point to build an individual relationship with every student, no matter how big my classes are. I’m sure to always make myself available for my students, even if it’s in the middle of the night (even at 4am 😇) , to help with any panic Physics calls! 

My students describe me as:

My students describe me as that SOLIDO cher, who’s not only passionate about Physics, but passionate about helping you to excel in your grades! Which is why so many of my students jump from a U to an A!

What our students say

"I was legit struggling with my physics and thanks to duncan and his class I was able to improveso much especially in the second half of jc from an S in promos to a C in prelims to an A in Alvls. He legit helped improve not only my understanding in certain concepts but my love for thesubject itself. I finally enjoyed studying physics when i started understanding it more, thanks toduncan. Zenith pls increase his pay duncan solido tutor."

- Nara, SAJC, Class of 2023

"Duncan has helped me tremendously in my physics journey throughout my JC life, allowing meto see large improvements in my physics performances due to his relentless guidance and 24/7support. Many other people around me have also agreed that Duncan is one of the best physicstutors out there, with fun and engaging classes that help students develop and nurture apassion for the subject."

- Noah, SAJC, Class of 2023

"Duncan is a funny and intelligent teacher which makes class engaging and easy to understand helping me secure high marks for my physics exams consistently"

- Ka Wei, VJC, Class of 2023

"duncan helped to break down challenging concepts into parts that are more bite-sized andeasily understandable, which allowed me to grasp concepts faster and better than myclassmates. he also made physics lessons more fun and had me looking forward to learningphysics. thanks to zenith, i was able to go from a U in j1 to an A in A Levels! :)))"

- Bo Hyun, SAJC, Class of 2023

"attending duncan’s lesson helped me gain exposure to questions my school didn’t which wasreally helpful! lessons were also really easy to understand and enjoyable! did not onceregret joininggg! thanku for the A"

- Rui En, SAJC, Class of 2023

"I was referred to Duncan's H2 physics tuition in J2 by a classmate. I was always skeptical aboutthe amount of help tuition could provide me until I came across Duncan's phenomenal teachingstyle. His passion for the subject really shines through in his teaching and frankly captivates metowards learning more deeply abt physics. Duncan is very clear and concise when goingthrough concepts for the first time and its just so easy to understand under his teaching. He alsorevisits concepts to solidify our understanding and is consistently patient with all of us. He neverfails to engage the class and will make sure each of us are thinking by asking us questions. He makes learning a process that is meaningful and not just for the sake of it. Furthermore inlessons, when we answer wrongly he would just explain to us and it honestly helps us avoid ourmistakes even better. I must really thank him for making me enjoy physics and that pushed meto work harder, allowing me to achieve A grade in A LEVELS."

- Jie Kang, JPJC, Class of 2023

"Duncan is an extremely capable teacher who has a vibrant personality. His passion for physicsis infectious, and has encouraged me to work harder in physics His classes are full oflaughter and active participation, as Duncan makes the effort to include every student indiscussions in a fun way. Undoubtedly, Duncan’s lessons helped me get an A for physics whichwould have never happened otherwise. If I could, I would refer every person who is struggling inphysics to Duncan. YEAA!!"

- Neryss Ho, HCI, Class of 2023

"before attending duncan’s physics class, my main issue was not knowing when and whyformulas are applied. because of this, i would always get a passing grade for physicsconsistently till the mid-year exams. after i was taught by duncan, i could grasp physicsconcepts much more easily mainly because he taught me how to appreciate the topics and theirpossible relevance to other topics as well. this made physics as a subject much more interestingto me and thus motivated me to understand the concepts rather than blindly memorise formulasor the structure of exam questions. surely enough, i got a 68% for my EOY physics paper, asignificant improvement from my last test, after duncan’s guidance. without duncan’s help, idefinitely would not have been able to gain traction and thus build momentum to tackle futuretopics confidently. it goes without saying that being able to achieve a distinction for A levelphysics is a result of the foundations that was laid by duncan and his engaging lessons thatmade me enjoy physics much more!"

- Emmaus, TJC, Class of 2023

"duncan is a vv engaging physics teacher that is able to explain concepts that seem verycomplex initially simply and always asks us questions during lessons which helps me rememberthe concepts better he’s also very willing to answer your questions 24/7 and overall a vvvsolid physics tutor. 10/10 recommend"

- Jadyn Cheng, SAJC, Class of 2023

"before coming to duncan’s zenith physics class i was super lost in physics and couldn’taccurately understand all the difficult concepts taught in school. however duncan’s verylighthearted and informative way of teaching made it very easy to grasp the concepts taught andthe constant extra tips he gave us helped me to improve my speed at solving physics questions which was one of my weak points. even outside of tuition hours he also helps us in his free timewhen we have queries about physics questions in our school papers and it was really helpfultoo. he helped me improve my physics from a U to an A from j1 to j2!! thanks duncan"

- Eunice Tan, EJC, Class of 2023

"Physics, a subject that consistently challenged me from secondary school through JC1. Seeking to overcome this hurdle, i attended a zenith physics trial class led by Duncan. In just one session, Duncan introduced numerous answering techniques that illuminated previously challenging concepts such as Dynamic’s collision questions. Encouraged by this breakthrough, I  joined Duncan's class, realizing that his teaching style rendered physics less intimidating than I had always perceived. Duncan's infusion of jokes and humor not only made classes enjoyable but also facilitated learning. Moreover, his accessibility for consultations via WhatsApp and Zoom, even late at night, ensured timely clarification, with his explanations consistently comprehensive and thorough. My most notable progress occurred within a mere three months of joining Duncan's class, transitioning from an E in my JC2 term assessment to an A in the mid-year assessment. This upward trajectory culminated in an A grade in the A-levels—an achievement I attribute solely to Duncan's unwavering support and guidance. Beyond academia, Duncan served as a mentor, sharing invaluable insights from his own JC and university experiences, offering motivation and support during challenging times. In essence, Duncan's exceptional teaching not only enabled me to excel in physics but also instilled a newfound enjoyment and appreciation for the subject."
