Mrs Patricia G

I have 23 years’ experience teaching physics to a range of different pupils at QEHS Hexham and RGS Newcastle. At GCSE level, I have taught Edexcel iGCSE and AQA courses and at A level, AQA and OCR. I have also helped many students successfully prepare for Oxbridge entrance exams. I tailor my teaching to suit the individual student. By listening to the student, I establish how they think about concepts and identify areas that they need to develop. I have a strong knowledge of the commonly held misconceptions in physics and have various strategies to overcome these. Over the years I have developed my own understanding of physics and can now break down concepts to enable my students to understand and apply them. I use past exam papers to ensure students can deconstruct exam questions and are familiar with the style of response required. I tutor online, via Teams or Zoom.

After leaving a career in the Water industry I trained at Durham University as a Science teacher. I am happy to teach Science to KS3 and KS4. I have nearly 20 years teaching experience across all abilities and have learnt that each student has individual learning strengths. It is my role to find the most effective teaching strategies that benefit the individual. Above all, I want students to feel relaxed and unaffraid to try new approaches. I consider a mistake as an opportunity to develop and learn. Ultimately I want to build confidence and understanding by providing a context in which new information can be added to a strong foundation.
