    Any good Physics coaching centre other than Matrix?

    Is Ace in Ryde good?
    Any other place you know or heard of has a good reputation in Physics HSC? Any area.
    Thanks

    I can vouch for Chris at Sigma Science. Probably miles ahead of Matrix. With regards to being far away-I personally had to travel for 1hr a week to get to Chris each Saturday and it was definitely worth the travel.

    Other suggestions: Zhang's at Strathfield and private tutors

    Sorry to disappoint with the Prelim classes being run on Saturday this time around!

    I am totally worth the travel, but I understand the predicament!

    I have heard mixed reviews about Zhang's -- apparently he is quite difficult to understand, has quite large classes (25+?), but he really knows his stuff!

    I suppose it really depends on what you want?

    True but you also need to consider how much of that actually came down to the tutor, some of these state rankers you are referring to are my personal friends at uni and they are some of the brightest people I've ever met and I am sure they could have gone anywhere for tutoring and would have done equally as well if not better.

    Hence, I feel state ranks shouldn't really be a measure of how great a tutor/tuition centre is, rather I believe the overall results of all students(not just the best students they want you to see) and how the average student finds their experience to be far better measures of this.

    Synergy Education in Stra is pretty good. They really emphasise on a fundamentals approach, easy to understand and focus on heaps of exam technique. I go to a selective school and my ranks have definitely improved heaps. I went from ~40th in chem and phys to top 10 in the school after trials . Some of my friends there are also seeing lots of improvement as well.
