A Very Experienced Science GCSE and Physics A Level Tutor
If your offspring is performing below where they need to be in science GCSE or Physics A Level I am sure I can help. Over and over parents/careers tell me 'they understand the concepts, but they can't do the questions'.
A common problem, and one I can help with...
As a science classroom teacher with over 15 of experience I am very familiar with the GCSE/A-level courses and assessments. As someone with teenage children I am also fully aware of the stress placed on our young people today. Before teaching I worked in medical-physics research for 3 years, and I have also had a business as a web developer. My years in the classroom, as well as my real-life experience enable me to ground physics in the real world, and even if I say so myself I can usually engage with even the most swtiched off pupils. I have taught every kind of pupil including future PHds in Physics and future residents at 'Her Majesty's Pleasure'.
In my experience some pupils have developed a mindset that says 'I can't do physics'. In reality of course they can and I often see their confidence grow. Recently one parent of an A-Level physics student that I tutor said their child had commented that 'you explain things the way I wish my teacher did'. Now I certainly do not want to run down any teacher - I know how much they juggle. But that comment does highlight the difference that focused 1-2-1 can make.
