Online Physics Tuition
My name is Nick Osborne.
I am a very highly experienced physics tutor with over twenty years of experience teaching in schools in the UK and one-to-one private tuition.
I provide online physics tuition in:
A level and AS level;
GCSE and iGCSE.
If you are investing in private tuition, you want to make sure you get the best tuition available tailored to your needs.
There are different tuition options available:
One-to-one online tutorials
I will ask students to email me some details (such as the exam board, and what topics the student wants to work on) before lessons so that I can prepare specific materials tailored to the student's needs. In this way, we can maximise the benefit of the learning time. I can also set and mark homework activities according to a student's needs.
Live webinars for A level and IB physics - The autumn term series will start in October 2019.
Live webinars are designed to cover the major topics of A level and IB physics - the topics which are generic to all exam boards. There will be any number of students attending the webinar, so this provides an economical option. Watch this space for more information about live webinars.
How online physics tuition works
Whether you choose one-to-one tutorials, or live webinars makes no difference in terms of what you need and how the lessons work.
Watch this brief video to get an idea of how online physics lessons work.
What you will need:
a broadband internet connection;
a computer or laptop with a webcam and/or microphone;
a reasonably quiet place.
Tutorials make use of an online classroom called Scribblar in which both student and teacher can write on a whiteboard. I will send the student a link to their own personal Scribblar classroom before the first lesson. It's easy to use. It allows for past paper questions to be viewed and worked on together.
Please note: a parent or responsible adult should be at home when the tutorial takes place.
Recommended (but not essential):
Some students may enjoy making use of a pen and tablet when working in the online Scribblar classroom (see below). A good quality, inexpensive tablet that works well with Scribblar is the Wacom Intuos Pen Graphics Tablet. That is what I use and it works a treat. A great tool for making revision notes too!
