Treasurer: Tony Chee
Mr Tony Chee is the founder and principal Physics tutor of Best Physics Tuition Centre, a leading A Level, O Level and IP education centre in Singapore.
He graduated with first class Honours in Physics and Mathematics from University of Birmingham, U.K., under the Singapore Government’s Public Service Commission Overseas scholarship. He subsequently attained his Masters in Business Administration from California State University, U.S., as well as his Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) from the National Institute of Education in Singapore.
As a former full-time Ministry of Education (MOE) Physics lecturer and curriculum designer, Tony has taught at various top government schools in Singapore, as well as authored numerous Physics guidebooks and Physics Ten-Year-Series. Subsequently, he became a lecturer at the National Institute of Education where he trained Physics teachers. He also took on a Senior Head role at the Ministry of Education, managing university funding and administration.
Tony was featured in The Straits Times, as one of the “Super Tutors in Demand” in Singapore. He is also an elected life-member of the Institute of Physics Singapore, whose elected fellows include Singapore’s President Dr Tony Tan and various Nobel Laureates like Professor Gerardus ‘t Hooft and Professor Yang Chen-Ning.
For his contributions to education, Tony was awarded two Outstanding Contribution Awards by the Ministry of Education, in 2007 and 2013. Beyond academics, Tony enjoys researching, generating technological patents and bringing them to commercialization. In the process, he hopes to inspire the younger generation in applying the knowledge they have gained in school, to improves the lives of people around the world.
Tony’s hopes for ATS:
I set up this Association because I believe it can help to complement the current system. The private tuition industry arises because of an intrinsically strong and natural demand for educational excellence. This association will serve as a common platform for private tutors to voice their opinions and work hand-in-hand with the relevant stakeholders to create a better educational landscape for Singapore.
