Read our top tips on how to help your child prepare for their 13+ Common Entrance Exam so that they can secure a place at one of the UK’s leading schools.
Private Tutors for Physics
We introduce Physics tutors for the 11+, 13+, GCSE, AS and A Level, IB and University.
Every Physics tutor we introduce has a thorough understanding of the major exam boards, as well as an outstanding academic background and proven track record. To ensure we introduce the right Physics tutor for your child, we take the time to understand his or her learning style and personality and to identify specific areas that require extra support. This bespoke service will ensure your child connects quickly with their Physics tutor, which will in turn build their confidence and drive them to even higher academic attainment.

GCSE Physics Tuition
We introduce the highest quality, experienced and trusted physics tutors who are experts in GCSE and IGCSE physics tuition. Whether your child is thriving at school or needs a confidence boost and guidance with GCSE study skills, we will introduce you to a GCSE physics tutor to suit their specific needs and preferred pace and style of learning.
An introduction to a private physics tutor will help your child to enter the exam room with confidence and knowledge. Physics tuition should be fun, dynamic and varied, preparing students for the use of mathematics that they will need to be confident in for really getting to grips with GCSE physics. A typical physics tutor may begin with lessons on energy or electricity, if your child needs to recap the basics, or may instead progress straight to Space Physics if they need to focus only on the more challenging parts of the course.
A Level Physics Tuition
Building from a solid foundation in GCSE or IGCSE physics, expert A level physics tuition is valuable for those who find bridging the gap between GCSE and A Level particularly challenging. Focused A Level physics revision with a physics tutor will help your child to secure the highest possible grade in their final exams. Vital to a successful strategy will be adopting a rigorous and structured approach to revising the A Level physics material and making time for past paper practice, with regular expert feedback.
The study of A Level physics requires a solid grasp of the main theoretical concepts in classical physics, current applications of physics – such as medical physics – and advanced practical skills. We introduce A Level physics tutors who will help your child develop their scientific thinking alongside results the development of focused revision methods.
Pre U Physics Tuition
Introductions to expert Pre-U physics tutors who will give your child the confidence to thrive in their independent study. The physics tutors we introduce have an excellent knowledge of classical physics and the more intellectually challenging concepts of applied physics, including molecular kinetic theory, quantum physics, special relativity and astrophysics. Whether they are aiming for a Pass (P2), a Merit (M2) or Distinction (D2) it is important that you child works with a tutor who fully understands the Pre-U physics requirements.
The theoretical and practical grounding provided to students throughout their study of Pre-U physics prepares them well for the study of physics, Engineering or related disciplines at university. CIE Pre-U physics students are expected to work independently and so usually would not require a private physics tutor. In our experience however, the pressure placed on students who are taking one or several Pre-U courses in the Sixth Form, often alongside A Levels means expert private tutors are sometimes needed for a short period of intensive support to help your child to feel at their most confident ahead of exams, or to get back on track if they are feeling left behind.
(IB) INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE MATHS TUITION
Engaging an experienced IB physics tutor is easy to do with a team of excellent tutors to choose from. Whether you are looking for a tutor to come to your home or to connect with your child for online lessons, we will introduce you to an experienced IB physics tutor who can help to boost your child’s confidence and capabilities ahead of the exam.
Physics is an experimental science that combines academic study with the acquisition of practical and investigational skills. If your child has chosen to study IB physics as a prerequisite for a university course, such as physics, Engineering or Astronomy it is likely that they will have to score a 6 or 7 in their IB physics exams to gain their university place.
If your child is studying science as part of the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and would like to learn with an experienced physics tutor we will also be able to introduce you to a suitably experienced tutor to meet your specific needs.
Common Entrance Physics Tuition
We introduce the highest quality science tutors who will guide your son or daughter through their Independent Schools Examination Board (ISEB) Common Entrance curriculum. We will introduce you to a Common Entrance science tutor who is familiar with the entrance requirements for all of the leading schools, including Eton, Harrow, Westminster, St Paul’s, Dulwich and Winchester.
Preparing for the Common Entrance ISEB examinations as part of your child’s progression to senior school is a challenge. As well as a thorough grounding in each of Physics, Biology and Chemistry your son or daughter will require a thorough understanding of the Common Entrance science mark scheme. A good Common Entrance science tutor provide all of this; with lessons in examination technique and plenty of feedback on past papers – all delivered in a style and at a pace perfectly suited to your son or daughter.
