The Profs tutors undertake to provide the best help and advice. You’ll be working with an expert who has experience at an advanced level for many years. The tutoring will be tailored to your exact and unique needs and scheduled to suit any timeframe or deadline you may have. 

Your tutor will arrange an initial consultation to establish your goals and time limit for the tutoring. After that point, you can use their recommendations and can book as many online sessions as you need to achieve your desired objectives.

We pride ourselves on our fantastic track record of helping students and their high satisfaction levels.

It depends on what you are trying to achieve, but it’s very difficult for anyone to make good progress with any topic in less than 5 hours, total, and we don’t arrange tuition placements for any less than that. We usually recommend a 2-hour session, and many students stick with that length. 

Weekly or twice-weekly sessions are usual, but this is always open to discussion with the tutor, and depending on the time limit, we can always arrange sessions more or less frequently. 

Part of the service our physics tutors provide is an initial consultation. The tutor will be able to discuss your aims with you and, based on their experience with the topics, will be able to give you an estimate of the time needed. They can also help you structure your study between sessions to ensure that you are making good progress.

We are extremely proud of our online reviews, available on TrustPilot and Facebook. We also store the feedback on all our physics tutors work to make sure that we are confident when we put them forward. Unfortunately, we cannot give out details of our students.

Online physics tutoring depends on the level, the experience of your selected tutor, and the exact field of study you wish tutored in. Our system works on a pay-as-you-go model with a matching fee per tutor search and with a one-time registration fee.

Undergraduate tutoring starts from £70 per hour and postgraduate tutoring from £80 per hour. Specialist tutoring in very niche fields begins at £120 per hour. School physics tutors are £50 per hour. Our prices start at £150 per hour for those seeking university application support.

There is a one-off registration fee of £50 for new clients when you sign up to find a Physics tutor. There is also a matching fee intended to cover The Profs’ administrative costs. It is only payable each time you are put in touch with a tutor with whom you are happy to work. It is refundable if you are not satisfied with your tutor and we cannot find a suitable replacement.

More information is available in our Terms and Conditions.

The Priority Placement fee for finding tutors at urgent notice is £100.

If your deadline is urgent, we charge £100 to push your needs to the top of the pile and focus on finding you the right tutor, ideally within 24 hours.

Unfortunately, we don’t offer trial sessions. Still, you will have a chance to speak to your tutor before your first session, usually for around half an hour, to discuss your requirements in more detail and help them prepare properly for your time together. We also have a student satisfaction policy for the first session, which you can read more about in our Terms and Conditions.

Matching you with the right tutor can’t be rushed, but we won’t be wasting any time either. It usually takes around 2-3 working days, so do get in touch as soon as possible to give yourself the best chance of success. If you need to find someone sooner than that, you will need to request a Priority Placement, for which there is an extra charge (see our pricing page). We will then undertake to find someone on the same day if possible. If we can’t, we will only charge the usual placement fee.

The majority of tuition arranged through The Profs takes place online, meaning that students from all over the world can access the best tutors in the UK (and elsewhere). The timing of sessions is always different and depends on your availability and the tutor’s schedule. Let us know any preferences or restrictions on your time, and we will do our best to accommodate.

All payments taken by The Profs are on the tutors’ behalf and made via debit or credit card or Direct Debit.

A good physics tutor has a strong understanding of physics concepts and can break them down into simple terms that students can understand. They are patient and focus on the individual needs of the students. 

How much are London physics tutors?

Physics tutors London pricing depends on the level, the experience of your tutor. Tuition is a pay-as-you-go service with a one-time registration fee. Of course, life in London is more expensive, and so tutors based there may have higher rates. 

The cost of undergraduate physics tutoring starts at £70 per hour, and the cost of physics postgraduate tutoring is £80 per hour. A specialist physics tutor in a niche field costs £120 per hour. School physics is £50 per hour. Our online physics tuition prices start at £150 per hour for those seeking university application support.

There is a one-off fee of £50 for new clients for the first match with a private physics tutor and is to cover The Profs’ administrative costs. The Profs has many greater London physics tutoring options, including West London physics tuition and plenty of physics tutors south of the river as well. 

For what university degrees is physics useful?

A-level physics is considered a facilitating subject among Russell Group universities, meaning that it can help students get into a variety of degree courses. Physics also belongs to the gang of four (along with biology, chemistry, and maths), which you need two subjects from to pursue any science, engineering or medical degree. In the physical sciences, any degree which involves the study of non-living objects, physics plays a particularly important role.

For what careers is physics useful?

Technological advancements mean that many new career opportunities are becoming available to physicists every day. Here are some options for those who study physics:

  • Meteorologist
  • Particle physicist 
  • Astronomer
  • Geophysicist
  • Nanotechnologist
  • Research Physicist
  • Secondary school teacher
  • University lecturer
  • Quantum computing programmer
  • A physics tutor for The Profs!

The GCSE physics syllabus consists of eight subject areas, spread out over two test papers: Energy. Electricity.

In the first paper, students face questions on subjects 1-4: energy, electricity, particle model of matter and atomic structure. a

The second paper covers subjects 4-8: forces, waves, magnetism, electromagnetism, and space physics.

From quasars to quavers, It allows you to delve into the laws that explain why everything in the universe exists. It explores where energy comes from how it behaves and transforms. It also examines the forces of nature, like gravity, and how they work.

All exam boards offer level A Physics. Here’s a list of what the AQA A-level physics course covers: Particles and Quantum Phenomena, Waves and Optics, Forces, Newton’s Laws of Motion, Momentum, Work, Energy and Materials, Electricity and DC Circuits, Circular Motion, Simple Harmonic Motion, Thermal Physics and Gases, Gravitational Fields, Electric Fields, Capacitors, Magnetic Fields and Electromagnetic Induction, Radioactivity and Nuclear Energy. AQA also includes an option topic: one from Astrophysics, Medical Physics, Engineering Physics, Turning Points in Physics and Electronics.

A-level is a mixture of practical application and conceptual thinking. To understand the workings of an electric motor, you need to think abstractly about fields but also be able to apply those ideas. A lot of practice and proficiency is required to get accurate results from experiments. Level A involve a lot of calculations, and you need to be comfortable with algebra. Descriptive tasks also require strong communication skills.

In addition to the theory classes, you will receive hands-on laboratory training to reinforce your learning.

IB physics is a challenging course, especially at Higher Level (HL). We help many trainees excel in the subject, but we also regularly train students who need our support when they struggle with IB physics.

Learners of both ranks must learn the eight Core topics and one of the Options. These topics range from classical mechanics and electromagnetism to modern particle physics. SL IB physics learners are only accountable for the Core and the Option.

At the degree class, key areas of study in physics include space and time, astronomy and geology, relativity, quantum physics, electricity and magnetism, geophysics, and fluid dynamics, to name but a few. First-year courses focus on the fundamentals of physics, with a lot of maths.

Further study of physics gives you a range of subject-specific skills in condensed matter, astronomy, computational and experimental physics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics.

A-Level teachers will give you incredibly strong analytical and research skills. You will be able to solve problems systematically and logically. You will be able to investigate theories, devise tests and explore new ideas. Such strong problem-solving skills are desirable for top degrees and the workplace.

Additionally, physics is very useful for all scientific and mathematical degree courses. Some university degrees require additional science subjects, such as Biomedical Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry and so forth. Physics is a great course to take to prove your scientific credentials for all of these degrees and many more.

Additional example degree courses which generally require include Biochemistry, Computing, Electronics, Economics, Engineering, Environmental Science, Forensic Science, Geology, Medical Science, Meteorology, Optometry, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Sports Science, Veterinary Science, amongst more specialist degrees.

Suppose you plan to study Medicine, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Biomedical Engineering. Then, it makes sense to choose IB Biology HL. But, if you plan to study Physics, Engineering of any type, including Biomedical Engineering or Mathematics. Then, it makes sense to choose IB physics HL.

A physics degree is a worthwhile enterprise as it helps learners gain reasoning and quantitative skills, develop a strong mathematical and physics foundation, and enhance their problem-solving abilities. A physics degree is highly versatile and can help secure jobs in various industries and professional fields.

Physics graduates have a reputation for solid mathematical skills, strong problem-solving ability, and good work ethic. It is a great scientific/academic degree because it not only works well on its own, but it is also the foundation of a lot of other disciplines, such as engineering. It requires the knowledge of advanced maths and technology, so you can shift into another career if you find it more exciting.

Starting salaries for physics graduates are higher than those for many other technical fields, including mechanical engineering. 

  • Computer Research Scientist - Average Salary: £96,000/ $126,830/ €115,000 (US Bureau of Labor Statistics)
  • Patent Agent - Average Salary: £88,000/ $116,794/ €106,000 (Indeed)
  • Nuclear Engineer - Average Salary: £88,000/ $116,140/ €106,000 (US Bureau of Labor Statistics)
  • Astronomer - Average Salary: £88,000/ $116,028/ €106,000 (

Physics is harder. There is an old saying that if you take a physics degree, you’ll end up studying almost as much maths as those on maths degrees.

The 5 Hardest Degrees in the UK

  1. Physics
  2. Electrical Engineering
  3. Neuroscience
  4. Law
  5. Dentistry

If you are mainly interested in theoretical physics, then maths may be the better choice, as theoretical physics requires an extremely high-level understanding of abstract mathematics.
