Physics Tutors

We have tutors with experience teaching all ages at all levels and abilities. However we pride ourselves, and differentiate ourselves, in being able to connect you with a network of bright, passionate, and enthusiastic physics tutors across the world. Our physics tutors have all studied physics or mathematics at university; most studied in Cambridge, Oxford or one of the Ivy League colleges. Many are currently working on their PhDs or are physics teachers in some of Britain's top schools.

Physics Tutoring

The study of how the physical world works can be a rewarding academic pursuit full of creativity. Whether explaining rotational momentum using the movement of an ice skater or coming up with visual representations to help students grasp vectors, our tutors are experts at breaking down concepts for students. We pride ourselves on being able to both help struggling students but also to push the most enthusiastic and brightest young minds. Along with maths, physics is the subject we are most experienced at teaching.

Physics Exam Preparation

More often than not, however, we find ourselves helping prepare students for exams. We have helped students prepare for UK exams: 11+ and 13+ Science, GCSE Physics, A Level and Pre-U Physics; and for US courses: AP Physics B, AP Physics C (Mechanics and Electricty and magnetism).

For exam preparation programmes we recommend intense and focused revision sessions where we immediately drill down to identify the exam question types and topics the student is having most trouble with. We start by reviewing student homework, practice tests and mock exams (we can help set these if needed) and identifying question types where the student is struggling most. We then work through these question types and topics one by one, solving multiple variations of the same question with the student, until they are comfortable and confident to answer them on their own, in exam conditions. We prioritise confidence building, exam technique and teaching the ability to break down questions and answer exam questions efficiently and effectively. In the final few sessions before a big test we discuss exam day tactics and what questions a student should leave until last and which ones they should tackle first.

I have been studying with degree level students for years and find tailoring concepts and processes to an individual’s interests exciting. I’m patient and disciplined and enjoy the reward of helping students move past plateaus in their learning, and with a diverse background in many subject areas I can adapt lessons and study to a wide range of individual needs. ...

I am a future trainee solicitor at Linklaters LLP and am about to commence studying for my LPC professional qualification. I have a First Class degree from Oxford in Classics (Literae Humaniores), 3 A*s (English Literature, Latin, Ancient Greek) and 1 A (History) at A level, and 12 A*s at GCSE. This year I have been tutoring students for Latin and Ancient Greek A levels, and also offer tutoring in English Literature and History A levels, and most subjects at GCSE (available on request). ...

I recently completed my Natural Sciences degree at Christ's College Cambridge, where for my first two years I read maths, physics, and chemistry. In my final year I received the second highest First in the university in history and philosophy of science. Before Cambridge I went to Oundle School, a private boarding school in Northamptonshire.

After a stint working at the Cabinet Office I am now a studying for my Graduate Diploma in Law. My timetable is flexible and essentially self-managed, giving me lots of time to tutor outside of my legal studies.

I started tutoring my friends and peers while at school and have now been tutoring for around 7 years. In that time I have mostly taught maths, english, physics, chemistry and history at GCSE and A level, but have recently begun more intensive tutoring for the UK's 11+ and 13+ exams.

I studied mathematics at Trinity College Cambridge; I graduated with a MA (1st) and a MMATH (Distinction); and was a Senior Scholar. Before Cambridge I went to school in Aiglon College, a premium boarding school in Switzerland. I grew up in England and Switzerland, but also lived in Asia and Africa as a child.

I started tutoring and helping other students learn in school and have been tutoring for around 15 years. I have mostly tutored maths and physics from 13+ and Common Entrance all the way up to University degree level. With Wentworth Tutors, I have also helped several students prepare for interviews with Strategy Consultancy firms: for internships, in the graduate milkround and for experienced hire positions. However, when I worked as a strategy consultancy, I also ran general business and technical skills training for groups and in 1-on-1 teaching. As a consultant I regularly helped train colleagues in Excel, programming, and SQL; and even wrote some of the courses.

Prior to co-founding Wentworth Tutors, I worked at OC&C Strategy Consultants, a top tier strategy consultancy, based in London. I am Wentworth Tutors’ business manager – setting the business strategy as well as managing the day to day operation and administration of the business.
