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 am a College Lecturer and DPhil student in Atomic and Laser Physics at the University of Oxford, where I will shortly begin my final year. My research involves probing predictions of quantum mechanics using the coldest objects in the Universe.

I completed my undergraduate and Master's degrees at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge, graduating in 2016 with first class honours. I was a College Scholar in Cambridge and was awarded three Peter May prizes for excellence in academic and sporting achievement. Before Cambridge, I attended Ponteland School and achieved straight A* A-level grades. I have published 5 papers in high-impact physics journals and continue to teach mathematics and physics at undergraduate level.

I have tutored Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and Physics A-levels, both in person and over Skype, as well as providing coaching for Oxbridge admissions. I have also led in excess of 40 Oxford undergraduate interviews and have experienced the admissions system for both Oxford and Cambridge personally. ...
I'm originally from New York, and have been living in London for a bit over a year now. After graduating from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Creative Writing (Cum Laude), I received my Master's degree from the London Film School. I've been privately tutoring for years, as a peer tutor on Harvard's campus with the Bureau of Study Council, as well as with private agencies. I also have extensive experience as an Admissions Representative in the Harvard Admissions Office. I specialise in the American curriculum and US College Counselling, but know and work with the English curriculum as well. ...
I am a professional Musician and have been teaching professionally at the highest level for the last 10 years. I've been a freelance conductor pianist and singer for the last decade and in that time I have been privately tutoring for that entire time teaching music as well as maths and the sciences. I have also worked in the classroom and as outreach teacher for multiple different Music and education outreach companies. ...
I work for the London School of Economics and Harvard University, where I co-teach a 120-student graduate-level class on international economic development and produce applied research on economies in Africa, the Middle East and beyond.
