As a long-time teacher of Physics I have seen and helped students over a number of characteristic problems. These include problems relating to understanding basic physics concepts, reading and comprehending the "stem" of a problem, maths problems and basic experimental data analysis techniques to more advanced methodologies such as developing high-order problem-solving strategies and learning how to construct responses to written problems involving explanations and application of physics principles. Mastering all of the above is the key to mastering Physics. In the process, my experience is that students will see their abilities and confidence grow, and will start to see how the skills they are learning via Physics translate into improving their performance in other subject areas as well. This is how Physics can help you learn for life.
The resources that are available to my students are multiple worksheets on all topics (if a student can do the worksheets they are in good shape), notes on topics that require particular insight, multiple tests to assess understanding of each topic studied, worksheets on all aspects of experimental design and analysis methods, and academic videos.
For students wanting lessons online, this is done using any one of a number of free platforms (Zoom, Webex, etc, but Zoom is by far the best) which allows face-to-face video and the use of a shared whiteboard we can both type/write on. The service I offer will include work you submit to me to me during the week to check over and correct (regardless of whether it is given to you by your school or me). This is another benefit of tuition online: we don't have to wait for a weekly meeting to sort out a problem.
There is more to success in Physics than just plugging numbers into an equation. The school-based assessment tasks (data test, experimental design and analysis task, and research essay), as well as the external exam, will demand this. Contact me if you need help to improve your results and excel in this subject.
