Physics has a lot of mathematical concepts at play. Exceling in Maths, however, does not always mean that you will do well in Physics. If you are doing IB Physics HL or A-Level Physics, you will most likely need a tutor to help clarify concepts for you (unless you are naturally gifted), as some concepts in Physics simply sound so outlandish to mundane ears. Many students in Hong Kong fail Physics simply they do not understand the concepts well enough and make wrong calculations. Our Physics tutorials or course come in handy with our highly experienced team of Physics tutors.
Our Physics tutors graduate from leading UK/ US/ Canadian universities with majors in Physics/ Engineering/ Sciences or related disciplines. They typically have 3 or more years of teaching/ tutoring experience in IB/ IGCSE/ SAT/ SSAT Physics and are certainly well versed. All our Physics tutors lead small group or private tutorials, and students will be assigned a tutor who best cater to their learning needs.

Matthew has been tutoring Mathematics and Science courses at both IB and IGCSE level for nearly 4 years now. His qualifications include 6A*s and 3As in Maths, Sciences and languages and 42/45 in the IBDP, with 6s and 7s in HL Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics.
Throughout his time being a tutor, he has not only helped students improve their grades by 1–2-mark bands, but also help them develop a genuine interest in the subject he teaches. His style of teaching revolves around explaining the concepts first and going over an example to enforce understanding and subsequently, they practice a blank past paper question to reinforce the knowledge. He also endeavours to teach by using unconventional methods, such as relating the concept to real-life examples, which allows for better understanding of the topic taught.
He believes that every student has the potential to do well in the subjects, irrespective of their background, as long as they have the right guidance and the required work ethic and he hopes to instil it into them when he tutors them.
