Testimonials

“The course was excellent, the notes and questions especially”

“I found going through the exam questions was the most helpful aspect of the course”

“The course helped me improve my exam techniques and allowed me to understand certain topics that I initially found difficult”

“Most useful aspect of the course was the fact that we tackled exam questions right after we were taught a concept”

“I liked the seminar aspect of the course as it allows for lots of questions to be asked”

Tutor: Gorkem Cavli

Gorkem studied Physics at Magdalen College, University of Oxford and graduated in 2011. He then gained his qualified teacher status (QTS) from King’s College London in 2012. Teaching has always been a passion for Gorkem since his teenage years, when he worked as a tennis coach. Upon deciding to pursue a career in teaching, Gorkem began tutoring in 2010 while he was an undergraduate student. Currently he works as a full-time tutor, specialising in Physics and Maths A-levels and admissions tests such as PAT, as well as helping students in their university application and interview preparation. In 2013, Gorkem established the Physics & Maths Tutor website, which has become a useful resource, providing study help for thousands of students. In his private life, Gorkem still enjoys being a dedicated tennis player and coach.

Tutor: Dr Jonathan Hall

Jonathan is a former particle physicist and private tutor working in London, mostly teaching A-level and GCSE physics and mathematics. He has four years’ experience tutoring as well as three years’ previous experience teaching physics to undergraduates.

Jonathan has an undergraduate masters degree in physics from the University of Oxford and a PhD in theoretical particle physics from the University of Southampton and has also worked as a researcher at Indiana University in the States where he was mainly concerned with dark matter and LHC phenomenology. Outside of physics his interests include walking, reading, and playing music.
