Why study Physics ?
A Level Physics is essential for anyone wanting to study Physics/ Engineering at university, or thinking about an Engineering apprenticeship. Those heading down a different career path also choose it as a supporting subject. I have taught many future engineers, scientists, medics, economists, lawyers, a musician and even an artist in my time.
Whatever your path, Physics is a qualification that is well regarded by employers. They recognise that it establishes problem-solving skills, and that this is a useful skill in almost every working environment.
Why find a tutor?
There’s no doubting A Level Physics can be a tricky at times. Many students find it beneficial at some stage in their studies to seek tutoring support. One of the advantages of a 1:1 tutoring session is that it complements classroom study with a personalised focus. If a student wants to go over a particular topic then we can go straight there, covering it at their own pace. I will tailor my sessions with each student accordingly, and will try to make the subject interesting at the same time!

Physics Tuition Sessions
I teach the syllabus of all the main examining bodies (AQA, Edexcel and OCR). Students have access to a catalogue of revision notes which focus on key learning points for each subject area. I work alongside students to demonstrate how to tackle exam questions. This develops problem-solving skills and often provokes a more in-depth discussion and comprehension. I also use videos and practical demonstrations to show some of these principles in action. Students will be given homework so they can consolidate their learning, secure in the knowledge that they can come back with questions in the next session. All sessions are currently online.
