GCSE and iGCSE Physics Tuition in London
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
Tutor House provides expert GCSE Physics Tutors and can match your child with a friendly, knowledgeable tutor that fits you and your child’s needs. We only work with tutors with years of experience and who are passionate about what they do. Ones who will come up with a bespoke learning programme and help with GCSE/ iGCSE exam practice, focusing on areas where a student is struggling, and general study. They will help students become engaged with their subject, make learning fun, and help them achieve their desired grades.
Physics examines the nature of matter and energy. Students will study forces, magnetism, sound, heat and light, mechanics, waves, electricity, the structure of atoms and the matter and forces in the physical universe.
Breakdown of the core Physics GCSE content:
Physics GCSE core modules: can be broken down as follows:
- The transfer of energy by heating processes and the factors that affect the rate at which that energy is transferred
- Energy and efficiency
- The usefulness of electrical appliances
- Methods we use to generate electricity
- The use of waves for communication and to provide evidence that the universe is expanding
- Forces and their effects
- The kinetic energy of objects speeding up or slowing down
- Currents in electrical circuits
- Using mains electricity safely and the power of electrical appliances
- What happens when radioactive substances decay, and the uses and dangers of their emissions
- Nuclear fission and nuclear fusion
- Medical applications of physics
- Using physics to make things work
- Keeping things moving
Benefits of studying a Physics GCSE/ iGCSE
GCSE Physics encourages and teaches students to think about what makes things work – how is electricity harnessed and conducted? What makes objects move? How are physical structures formed?
Research, problem solving and analytical skills are all required for the course, and the hands on experimentation will encourage students to be curious and ask questions about the way things work in the world and wider universe.
Why is it worth studying Physics GCSE/ iGCSE?
Physics GCSE/iGCSE will give students a firm understanding of how physics affects society and the world we live in, and will also give them insight into the bigger picture of how our planet fits into the universe.
It will provide students with the ability to understand and apply hypotheses, gather evidence and successfully explain the why and how of things using scientific reasoning.
Physics requires students to be able to employ mathematical knowledge and use technology, both of which are useful, transferable skills that can be applied in other subjects.
Physics GCSE/iGCSE will give students a good background should they wish to go on to study Physics more intensely at A-Level or degree level.
A Physics degree is widely respected and opens up many doors in the world of employment. Here are just some of the careers a graduate could consider:
- Geophysicist/field seismologist
- Teacher of lecturer in Physics
- Research scientist for the physical sciences
- Seismic interpreter
- Operational researcher
- Radiation protection practitioner
