GCSE Physics Tutors and GCSE Physics Tuition

Physics is known as the fundamental science and creates a foundation for other natural sciences. In fact, without physics we would not have chemistry or biology or anything else! Learning GCSE physics is generally designed to give students the tools and concepts needed to enable them to construct a scientific approach to solving problems. GCSE physics tutors will cover topics such as: the use and transfer of energy, waves, radiation, space and the applications of physics.

Understanding physics can be difficult at any level and GCSE physics lessons naturally become more challenging than secondary physics lessons. Understanding how to answer questions about the fundamental laws that govern natural phenomena and engaging in how to relate physics to their everyday lives can often be difficult for some students and a GCSE physics tutor can really help.

Masters: Applied Mathematics MSc (2012)
in simplest ways. I use everyday examples to explain difficult topics and have taught students from a wide range of background for many examination boards including AQA, EDEXCEL,OCR, MEI, IB, JEB, CIE, WJEC,etc. As well as this I have also tutored students who are home schooled. I do past papers with students from the last 10-15 years and I make sure that my students knows all the exam solving techniques thoroughly and have complete knowledge...


Doctorate: DPhil Engineering Science (University of Oxford) (2009)
AS, A2, A Level, etc 18 years of tutoring experience in Universities (University of Oxford, Carleton University, UCL), Tuition agencies and Private colleges (Oxford Tutorial College). I currently teach modules of the MRI physics courses at UCL in addition to research related to advanced mathematical modelling of the brain. Different students have different ways of understanding different subjects. At the first instance, I try to understand the specific level of the student and move on...


PGCE: Post-16 PGCE (2005)
a public girls' school nearby. I've also worked over several years with two revision colleges in Oxford. In the last two years I have also been a professional tutor and have worked with over a hundred students from age 9 to university level. In maths, I tutor many students for OCR MEI A level (Maths and Further Maths, C1-4, FP1-3, S1,2 D1), but also some for OCR, Edexcel and the International Baccalaureate (IB). GCSE and...
alternative methods so as to evaluate any 'facts' that they may have forgotten/never understood in the first place so that they can prove the validity of certain ideas for themselves and can start to identify similarities between subject concepts using fundamental principles. I understand the importance of encouraging students to develop estimation, pattern recognition and visualisation skills. This approach can also improve problem solving ability in general. I review Powerpoint presentations during sessions and go...

you desire. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, and I would be delighted to answer. I have 12 years of teaching experience. I have tutored GCSE and A/L students in physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics (including further mathematics, mechanics and statistics) since I moved to London 5 years ago. During my 3 years at the University of Vermont I tutored undergraduates in chemistry (1st, 2nd, & 3rd years), biology (1st,...


Doctorate: Synthetic Organic Chemistry (1994)
with the methods which I was designing and working on. The research I completed enabled numerous papers to be published and cited in many others, as work they had referred to. The research I completed has been used within these fields to aid others in their research, treatment and drug identification. I currently run my own business and am a Consultant advising a wide range of Clients on health and safety / occupational health as...


Bachelors: B.Sc Physics with Mathematics (Hons) Sussex University (1967)
well as a considered evaluation of the new GCSE and A level specifications means I am up to date with teaching techniques and the latest developments in my subjects. Most importantly I like to make these subjects fun for the student – not always possible – but I do have lots of physics gadgets for when the formulae get a bit too complicated. Over the past 10 years I have met and tutored many young...
and combined science, and a past Head of Science, specialising in Chemistry and have a proven record of success for both higher level and foundation GCSE. Most tutees have achieved either AA/ A*A* in higher papers, with none getting lower than a BB, and those taking Foundation have all achieved a CC, which is normally the maximum grade for this level My A level students have increased their grades as a result of my tuition,...


Bachelors: Bachelor of Engineering in Information Technology (First class honours) (2008)
grow in their confidence and ability. I teach Maths, Biology, Physics and Chemistry for KS3, GCSE and A-level students. I am well organised and manage time effectively. I have been tutoring Maths and Science for 5 years covering all stages from Key stage 3 to A level. I tutor usually from my home. I have also had excellent success with the new QTS numeracy exams for teachers. I carry out individual assessment from time to...
to help them achieve their target grades. Some of my students have been convinced they are no good at particular subject and ended up top of the class! I have been teaching a range of science, engineering and key skills courses at schools, colleges and universities for more than 10 years from lecturing big classes to one-to-one mentoring. I always endeavour to adopt a good pedagogic approach to teach the subject with clear oral and...
