Physics Tutoring

How We Help

While physics may be part of the science curriculum in earlier years it is in grades 11 and 12 that students study physics as a separate subject.  Our tutors help students understand the concepts they are working on at school including helping with quiz, tests and exam preparation.  Our focus is always on increased confidence and better report card results.  International Baccalaureate students welcome.

Why Study Physics

The word physics comes from the Greek word meaning “knowledge of nature

Students who study physics might be looking for careers in the health science including medicine, pharmacy and technicians.  The fields of geo-sciences, engineering, architecture, computer-related programs, environmental studies and science educators also require a background in physics.

Physics challenges our imaginations with concepts like relativity and string theory, and it leads to great discoveries, like computers and lasers, that lead to technologies which change our lives – from healing joints, to curing cancer, to developing sustainable energy solutions.

Physics attempt to describe the universe and how it works.  It describes our physical world.  It describes energy and matter at the most fundamental level.  Physicists look for patterns in the behavior of all matter.

Because physics is concerned with atoms and molecules it is the foundation of chemistry, biology, geology and astronomy.  Physics is the basis to all the other natural sciences.

The goal of physics is to understand the universe and how it works through the use of a few fundamental relationships which we call the Laws of Physics.

Physic is divided into a number of topics including

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Electromagnetism
  • Optics
  • Relativity
  • Quantum Physics
  • Atomic Physics
