Secondary Physics Tutors & Secondary Physics Tuition

We are surrounded by physics all the time and whether we realise it or not, we use physics every day. Secondary physics lessons introduce children to a broader view of matter and energy and it has been said that studying physics helps develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills. Secondary physics tutors will cover topics such as: astronomy, electricity and magnetism, heat, energy, light and matter, electronics, sound waves and mechanics to help your child.

Learning secondary physics can often be difficult to understand. Helping your child grasp certain concepts can be difficult even for an adult. A private secondary physics tutor can make a world of difference to your child's science journey. First Tutors is the top site for matching parents to suitable secondary physics tutors and we are sure we can help you find the most suitable secondary physics tutor for your child.

PGCE: Post-16 PGCE (2005)
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 IGCSE have been mostly Edexcel. In physics, the boards have so far been mainly OCR B and OCR A, AQA A, Edexcel and IB at...
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 through past papers/exercises with students. I am very exam-focused (when appropriate) but sometimes also supply extra important insights on the subject from, for example, an industry/commercial perspective. I can also provide extra feedback and homework via email free...


Doctorate: Synthetic Organic Chemistry (1994)
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 well...
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, generally going from D/C to B, the minimum grade that many universities require. Those requiring an A, needed especially for...

supported them throughout their school careers. Since 2013, I have worked independently providing 1:1 home tuition for KS3 and KS4 students, some of this work continues to be with children with medical needs. From 2010 to 2013 I was employed by the Bexley Medical Needs Service home-tutorimg children upto GCSE level in addition to private tutoring both primary and secondary school children. Throughout my medical career I was involved in teaching colleagues, often on a...


Masters: First Class Hons in Astrophysics (2008)
experience with young over achievers who find that class work in school is not challenging enough. I have a wide range of experience in teaching and tutoring from my time in academia and I have taught everyone from children as young as 6 to their grandfathers. I can successfully explain complex subjects such as astrophysics in terms that even the very young can understand. I first began tutoring 8 years ago during my undergraduate degree,...


Masters: MBA (Project Management) (2012)
My rates are very competitive and I provide all materials according to student BOARD as AQA, OCR, Edexcel. PHYSICS: I have great experience in tutoring difficult areas of Physics for majority of AS and A2 students which included UNIT 1 as PARTICLE PHYSICS, QUANTUM PHENOMENA & ELECTRICITY. While for A2 Physics students it includes CIRCULAR MOTION, SHM, GRAVITATIONAL, ELECTRIC & MAGNETIC FIELDS, CAPACITORS, RADIOACTIVITY and NUCLEAR PHYSICS as wel as the rest of areas/topics of...

Fun Secondary Physics Experiment - Static Electricity

A fun way to discover about positively and negatively charged particles using basic household items. Is it true that opposites attract?

Things you will need:

  • Two blown-up balloons with string attached
  • An aluminium can
  • Some woollen fabric
  • Your hair

What to do:

  • First rub the two balloons one-by-one against the woollen fabric.
  • Then try moving the balloons together. Are they attracted to each other?
  • Rub one of the balloons against your hair then slowly pull it away (do this in front of a mirror so you can see what happens).
  • Put the aluminium can on it's side on a table. Rub the balloon on your hair again then hold the balloon close to the can and watch as it rolls towards it. Slowly move the balloon away from the can and it will follow.

What you will see:

  • By rubbing the balloons against the woollen fabric you have created static electricity. This involves negatively charged particles (which are called electrons) jumping to positively charged objects.
  • When you rub the balloons against the fabric or your hair they become negatively charged, they have taken some of the electrons from the fabric or hair and left them positively charged.
  • It thus appears to be true when we say opposites attract. Your positively charges hair is attracted to the negatively charged balloon and will rise up to meet it.
  • This is also the case with the aluminium can which is drawn to the negatively charged balloon as the area near it becomes positively charged.
