Physics A-level Summer Revision Classes – Online

These online courses are designed to give students who are going into Year 13 the boost they need to go into their final A-level year with confidence. Tutors will guide students through all the content they should have covered in Year 12, refreshing knowledge and filling in any gaps from teaching they may have missed due to school closures. Classes are separated by exam board and are spread over three days to give students time to go over content in depth. Once topics have been covered, tutors will go through past paper questions to consolidate knowledge and practice exam technique. Skills learnt on the course can be used by students once back at school to help boost grades.

Learners are supported beyond the course through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially designed and created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.

Darren Kirk

Darren completed a BSc in Theoretical Physics at the University of York before completing a MSc in Theoretical Physics at the University of Glasgow – where he was awarded the postgraduate excellence scholarship. Darren explored number of different career paths including engineering before becoming a teacher, and has experience working across different school contexts and exam boards. In addition to teaching, Darren also tutors A-Level Mathematics and Physics and is completing a MA focussing on Leadership in Learning.

Peter Iveson

Peter is an experienced A-Level Physics and Computer Science teacher at a Further Education college. He is a graduate of St John’s College, Oxford University, with two Masters degrees (including Computer Science), a first-class BSc in Physics, and a PGCE in Secondary School Science. He also has over 20 years’ experience in programming and IT project management.

Peter has taught a wide range of students of all abilities, many of whom have gone on to study at leading institutions. As well as many hours in the classroom, he also has extensive experience of remote teaching during Covid-lockdowns, and during his work as a private tutor. In his lessons he believes students should “do” as much as possible – working through problems is the best way to learn. Peter is also a firm believer in there being no “stupid” questions – some of the greatest insights in science have come from these.
