Bristol Tutors and Physics – why can the right tutor can make such a big difference?
Physics exams will test understanding, knowledge and a student’s ability to find solutions to approach overcome problems by finding the relevant solutions. A Physics tutor can help with any aspect of the course that is particularly difficult for any given students. One such area is to ensure that stent are able to demonstrate effective report-writing skills to follow up practical investigations.
In the process of learning about Physics, whether at school or with a private tutor, it will become apparent how numerical techniques are applied in the context of real life – such as in the key areas of electronics and modern-day technical devices. By studying the direct correlation between theory and practise, students can be prepared for practical assessments and how to interpret and summarise findings.
Physics courses come under the general umbrella of the filed of science’ and has a focus on problem-solving skills as well as practical investigation. However, Physics students can often find the sizeable Mathematical content especially difficult. A Physics tutors can be especially helpful in aiding understanding of the Maths and science elements and how they inter-relate.
Examples of specific areas of study that Physics tutors can help with;
Electricity and Electronics
This module seeks to enable students to understand the principles behind electricity, including electrical circuit theories. This then developed into fields of microelectronics, analogue and digital electrics and advance circuit theory. Students will be expected to analyse circuits and apply the principles they have been taught in order to successfully answer exam questions. These skills can be honed with the help of a Physics tutor.
This area could involve sub-topics on wider areas like transport, featuring safety mechanics and stopping distances of vehicles. As students delve further into the topics they are required to apply the theoretical principles to a range of motion-based. Interpretation of macroscopic and microscopic behaviours of matter must also be considered. Physics tutors can assist in going over sample questions and tasks to ensure the student has the relevant knowledge and skill bases to succeed in the final exam.
Space Physics and telecommunication
In the modern age, telecommunications play a vital role and Physics students will study radio, television, fibre-optics and communication satellites. This will also extend to the Universe – looking at space travel and the Physics and Maths principles that apply to this area. Physics tutors seek to ensure natural interests in such topical subjects is encouraged whilst ensuring students also focus on the skills to do well.
Why find a Physics tutor in Bristol?
Physics tutors have the relevant knowledge to help maximise results. Within the Physics syllabus, three areas must be covered properly;
- The ability to plan, organise and prioritise.
This will include problem-solving abilities and investigation techniques. Irrespective of a student’s natural ability in the subject, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the syllabus requirements which turn can result in poor confidence and results.
- Demonstration of a proper understanding of the syllabus is a core requirement.
Lack of understanding or gaps in knowledge put students at risk of missing target grades and can also result in more general confidence struggles in the subject area.
- Exam technique.
Being informed about how to answers questions concisely, comprehensively and in a way that meets exam criteria is of vital importance. Top results are awarded to those who tend to be well readied and practised at exam techniques – this arises out of knowledge, and practise, practise, practise!
Physics tutors can help you to navigate these three key areas and will focus on delivering Physics tuition to optimise exam results.
