What is Physics?

Physics is the study of the world around us. In simple terms Physics explains how things happen. Why do things fall, speed up, slow down? Why do bulbs or LEDs light up? How do speakers make sounds? How does lightning happen? How does ultrasound see inside us? How does a mobile phone work? How do lenses help us see better? How do signals travel to us from space? How do the planets orbit the sun? How are stars formed? How do Nuclear Power Stations work? How do huge ships stay afloat? These and many other questions are answered by learning about the main branches of Physics including force and energy, materials and particles, radiation, electricity, magnetism and electromagnetism, waves, thermal physics, space physics. Physics, like all the sciences, has a large amount of practical work and much of the learning is through doing rather than just sitting and listening.

GCSE and IGCSE Physics Tuition

At GCSE level, Physics is either studied as separate subject or makes up a third of Combined Science. As a separate subject, Physics can be studied as Single Science and receive a full GCSE grade. In Combined Science, the extension topics in Physics, Chemistry and Biology are not taken and the exams in all three subjects lead to two GCSE grades, so it is sometimes referred to as Dual Award Science. If a student intends to study Physics at A level then it is best, though not essential, that they take Physics as a Single Science. The main awarding bodies are AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC, Eduqas (part of WJEC) CCEA in Northern Ireland and SQA in Scotland. Assessment is through written exam papers, typically 2 x two hour papers or 3 x 90 minute papers. There is no separate practical assessment or coursework, but questions will be set based on the core practical activities the students will have carried out for themselves.

A-Level Physics Tuition

For entry into A-Level many schools would want to see a grade 7 or higher at GCSE, otherwise a student may struggle to do well at A-Level. At A-Level the concepts and ideas studied for GCSE are built upon and taken further, along with some applications of Physics which may include Astrophysics, Medical Physics, Engineering Physics and Electronics. A-Level Physics also involves a large amount of practical work.

Assessment is typically three written papers, each around two hours long. A-Level Physics can give access to a wide range of university courses and consequently related careers, such as Physics, Engineering, Astrophysics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Medicine, Biology, Chemistry, Sports Science and Pharmacy amongst others.

Tuition with a qualified Physics teacher at your home in Walsall costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified Physics teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and Physics tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Physics tutor coming to your home in Walsall to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Physics tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Physics tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Physics tutor is required to travel to your home, in Walsall. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Physics tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Physics tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Physics tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Physics tuition in Walsall depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
