Why choose Spires Online Astronomy tutoring?

Why study Astronomy?

Astronomy is the oldest of all sciences. The word comes from the Greek words astron, meaning 'star', and metron, meaning 'measure'. So astronomy literally means 'the study of the stars'. More specifically, it deals with their energies, composition, positions, motions, and interactions as a science. It involves the study of individual stars within our Milky Way galaxy as well as galaxies outside the Milky Way. The universe is the ultimate laboratory. We can observe it at work by looking into space, and we can learn about physics that cannot be replicated on Earth, such as how black holes form or what stars do when they age.

The future of astronomy and research related to all the planets in our solar system is extremely promising. Our understanding of space is growing and improving. As we explore life in space, better communication with other celestial bodies becomes possible. Physics has always taught us that there are infinite possibilities for what exists beyond our horizon. Studying Astronomy means that you can help expand that horizon more than you could ever know.

An astronomer understands how stars, planets, and other objects interact with each other. Not only that, but they are able to predict unusual events in the sky before they actually occur. For example, someone who studies eclipses would report any changes in behaviour or anomalies during an eclipse. This type of information is critical for NASA, to monitor solar flares and space weather. For this reason, NASA recruits astronomers for its research teams.

What university degrees is Astronomy useful for?

If you have already taken a course in astronomy and want to learn more about this wonderful subject, then an undergraduate degree in astronomy or astrophysics might be right for you. This rigorous curriculum includes an in-depth study of physics as well as advanced math courses. Students also learn how to use telescopes and other state-of-the-art equipment.

In addition to astronomy and astrophysics, students who want to learn more about astronomy can also choose courses such as astrobiology, igneous petrology, cosmology, optical physics, and electromagnetism.

What careers can studying astronomy lead to?

For those interested in astronomy and space, there are a variety of career opportunities waiting for you. You can be involved in research to find new planets or explore the depths of our universe. You can also work in observatories giving tours to visitors, maintaining equipment like telescopes, leading workshops on scientific discoveries made by astronomers from long ago, and teaching others about current events in space in planetariums and museums. There are even jobs for astronomy graduates at government agencies such as NASA and other equivalents around the world.

How expert tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Why Choose Spires’ Tutoring?

We only hire 4% of the teachers that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA, and around the world. All have a Ph.D., MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

We have a lot of repeat students and you can check out the high star ratings our clients leave. 

Because tutors set their rates via an auction system, our prices are more competitive than many other companies. Our online classroom is stable and fun to learn through. It has an interactive whiteboard and students can access recordings of classes at any time. They use webcam video chat when being taught.

Spires deals with all of the matching, scheduling, payments, and administration, we take all of the hassles out of organising support and allow students to focus purely on learning.

How does Spires’ online tutoring work?

You can find a professional tutor in four easy steps:

1. Use the Find A Tutor feature to create a post outlining your needs and requirements. You can choose from subject, level, price, and expertise.

2. Find your perfect tutor from our wide variety of skilled professors and educators. After you filter your search results using the Find A Tutor feature you can choose to ‘view profile’ of the best choices for your needs. 

You can then see reviews and star rating, including total hours taught for Spires and the price per hr.

3. Have your face-to-face class. This can be done whenever and wherever you are, it’s all online- neither you nor the tutor travels!

4. Replay the classes afterward for any missed information at your own pace and convenience. 

Private help is that easy!

Does it matter if the tutor is near me?

No, it doesn’t! It’s all done online whenever and wherever you are. All you have to do is pick your ideal mentor and speak to them to arrange the best time for you to have video lessons.It doesn’t matter at all if they are miles and miles (or kilometre and kilometre) away from you!

Who will my tutor be?

This is all up to you. You have a huge choice. You can look through our member tutor profiles, check student reviews and bids, their qualifications and backgrounds, hourly rates, hours taught, other subject they teach - and even check out if they have many repeat students. 

Then, communicate with your favourites to see if they are right for your needs and learning style. You can have a free video call by webcam, usually over zoom. Then you pick the person you’d like to help with your studies and schedule your first webcam lesson!

How many tutors are available to give private lessons?

We currently have over 11 Astronomy Tutors with academic and professional experience specialising in a wide range of topics from GCSEs to postgraduate support, and everything in between.

What qualifications do tutors need?

All of our tutors must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree and have tutoring experience. Most have higher degrees on top of that, in specialised areas such as Master’s degrees or PhDs. All of our tutors are DBS checked or have had equivalent background checks.

How much does a private Astronomy tutor cost per hour?

Tuition is priced according to level:

1. School level: For Primary school, Secondary and Higher Education prices start at €25/hr

2. University level: For Undergraduate and Postgraduate tuition, prices start at €35/hr

3. Professional level: For Chartered Qualifications and Admissions Test tutoring, prices start at €45/hr.

The average price per hour ranges based on the tutors’ experience, expertise and student’s level.

How much is a Astronomy tutor per hour in London?

The average tutor price per hr is £40/$53/€45 per hour depending on a teachers’ experience and students’ level of study. This is higher than other areas in the UK due to the increased living costs that come with London life.

What happens when I send a message?

Once you’ve used the Find A Tutor feature to find your perfect Astronomy tutor, you can contact them with any questions you might even meet in advance. A tutor should respond to you within 24 hrs with an answer and the hours they are available. If your selected teacher isn’t able to fit you into their schedule we will recommend others that fit your specifications. After a tutor replies, you can then schedule a free webcam meet and if you are satisfied you can go ahead and schedule your first lesson!
