Recent Physics Tutor Class Reviews From Our Students

Student Professional Tutor Date Subject Rating Comment
Joana 02 Dec 2021 Physics
Very detailed and very helpful
Junfred 28 Nov 2021 Physics
Junfred is tutoring my daughter in IGCSE Physics and we are very happy with the results! Can recommend him!
Erlend 16 Nov 2021 Physics
It was very good and we covered a lot of theory
James 08 Nov 2021 Physics
James has helped me very much with IGCSE math and physics. When I started I was far from ready to do the test and with only 2 months to go, I had very little hope. But James helped me prepare for the test and I ended up doing great on it. I strongly recommend James as a teacher. 10/10
Junfred 03 Nov 2021 Physics
Very nice and clear explaining, he is a patient person and very kind, he is the first teacher ( in my experience) that has no problem repeating what he says until his students have a good understanding! I am more confident now that I have classes with ( he is very encouraging and gives good advice) Thank you Mr. Jun!

Student’s (and parent’s) most Frequently Asked Questions


Why study Physics?

Physics may seem like a purely academic subject, but it has significant real-world applications. Being used everywhere from aerospace science to software development. The Cavendish Hall at Cambridge University is a testament to the heights that one can climb through the world of physics, producing not one but more than a dozen Nobel prize winners. 

Getting a degree in physics, especially at the undergraduate level is one of the most challenging yet rewarding programs you can get enrolled in. Physicists are more in demand than ever as new technology is paving the way for new job descriptions in various industries. 

Studying physics can help you in multiple technical industries, notably if you’re looking to go into engineering. Physics can often give you the prerequisites you need to get into a good engineering college. Some industries are simply hiring physics majors to work exclusively on their research and development programs. 

What university degrees is Physics useful for?

The Russell Group of universities considers physics A-level a facilitating subject, meaning that it can be useful in getting into a wide range of university courses. 

Physics is also one of the gang of four (alongwith maths, chemistry and biology) that you usually need to choose two subjects from in order to pursue a range of science degrees, such as medicine and engineering. Physics is an especially important subject for physical sciences, which are concerned with the study of non-living objects.

Physics branches out into multiple specialisations and after completing a BSc in Physics you can choose the field you’re most interested in to pursue at Master’s level. For example, if you’re interested in space, you may choose an MSc in Physics and Astronomy. Here you’ll be exploring the deepest crevasses of the universe while studying Astrophysics. If you’re more interested in studying the microscopic universe, you might go for a Master’s in Particle Physics, and go on to complete an MPhil and PhD. 

There are also lesser-known but well-paying other specialisations such as Biofluid Mechanics. If you see yourself having the potential to make the next big breakthrough, you may consider taking a Master’s in Experimental Physics. Or you may opt for Physics and Technology of Advanced Materials. 

Alternatively, if you’re passionate about not just learning Physics, but also teaching it, you may opt for a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Secondary Physics. 

What careers can online Physics tutoring lead to?

Studying physics gears you up for some of the most respectable jobs out there. With technology advancing at such speed there are entire new opportunities for Physicsts opening up all the time.

Here are some career options for those who study physics:

How does Physics help with Aerospace engineering?

Physics forms a major component of Aerospace engineering. A degree in Physics already gives you a great foundation in the prerequisite math you might need to go into engineering. Going into aerospace engineering after already knowing the basic concepts of aerospace engineering such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer and flow properties gives you a significant advantage. 

Aerospace engineering is an up-and-coming field that’s advancing at quite a pace. There are no end of career opportunities especially with the advent of drone and unmanned vehicle technology.

Excelling in aerospace engineering requires excellent quantitative and analytical skills. Along with an understanding of subjects such as mathematics, physics, computer science, and electrical engineering. So having a strong background in physics can not only help you cement key concepts easily but also land you amazing career opportunities. 

How expert online Physics tutoring can help you

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