Welcome to Queen Elizabeth Academy, where we provide high quality Physics tutoring for students who are attending high school. If you are seeking a Physics tutor, you have come to the right place!

Private and one on one Physics 11 and 12 Tutoring

Physics is a challenging subject for a lot of students. The key challenge is that physics is problem solving based. Students are accustomed to math, where they will have a formula and “plug-in” the numbers to derive the answer. For physics, you need to know which formula to use in the first place and how to change the formula according to the situation.

Memorizing steps and equations doesn’t work in physics. All questions in physics are application based, they are word problems. This means that your teacher can change the question slightly and your entire solution - the equation you use, the givens, the approach, will be all different. Understanding the concepts and apply them, instead of memorizing equations, is the key to doing well in physics.

How can our Physics tutor help you?

All QEA physics tutoring is one on one private. We teach the full lesson and review what you learned during the week. In this way, you won’t miss anything.

Chris L.
Physics Tutor, QEA
Chris is graduated major in physics at McMaster University. He is entering John Hopkins University to study his PhD in physics this fall.
  • Build foundation of physics based on understanding, not memorizing
  • Teach you the concepts in a way that you understand
  • Go through homework from your school
  • Go through our application / thinking problems with the difficulty on par with the school tests
  • Provide weekly worksheets and homework package on application thinking problems

The student will find physics 11 shocking, the first time he / she encounters it. This is because physics is application based, and knowing which equation to use, how to manipulate them is very different from math. You simply can’t use the math approach. QEA tutors will teach you the concept that you can understand and show you how to apply to the application problems. We will further teach you the problem solving techniques to tackle all those variety of problems.

Physics 12 Tutoring (SPH4U)

Physics 12 is one of the most challenging course in high school. You will encounter very complex problems such as projectile motion, collision (momentum), escape velocity (rocket launch) and electromagnetism. Each type of problem will have many variations, where they can change the unknown and your entire solution will be different. QEA tutors will teach you the key concepts, and show you how to apply to different problems. We will show you the key variety of problems, and give you extra practice. You will learn important problem solving techniques from our tutors to succeed in this course.

QEA Approach to Physics Tutoring

- How is our tutoring session run?

Private 1 on 1, Lesson based physics tutoring - that focuses on understanding, not memorizing

For each Physics tutoring session, you will get:
  • A full lesson on the concept, review what you learn during the week. e.g. What are Newtons’ 3 laws? How do you apply that to the application problems? What are the steps?
  • Step by Step explanation of major application / thinking problems. Physics students mostly stumbled upon application / thinking problems. Oftentimes they don‘t know how to start the problem. Tackling application problems requires a deep understanding of the concepts and good explanation. Your teacher will change the questions all the time and it’s all situation based.
  • Good notes from our lesson board. As we teach the materials we write everything down - explanations, solutions etc. These are valuable notes you can keep and use for reviewing for your tests.
  • Weekly Chemistry homework package focuses on application thinking problems. Practicing questions merely from your school homework or textbook is not good enough. You need practice to excel on a variety of application problems. We provide weekly homework focusing on this.

Common challenges for physics 11

When it comes to physics 11, it is a challenging subject for a lot of students. It is a combination of calculation and theory. Many students either don’t understand the concept enough to apply it, or they aren’t good in math to carry through the calculation. This is why they find physics difficult.

2 Tips to score higher marks on Physics (from QEA Physics Tutors)

Tip #1.
Visualize the problem and draw diagrams

One of the important techniques we tutor our physics students is to visualize the problem. Oftentimes students are too quick jumping into the equation. This is the wrong approach. Remember, physics is not math. You need to first understand the problem. By visualizing the question, you will know the variables and parameters involved, and what is happening. Only then you can apply / manipulate your equations, and plug-in your variables and numbers.

Tip #2.
Strive for understanding

Remember that physics is more than just answering homework questions. It can be easy to fall into the habit of memorizing equations and hoping that with that knowledge you can sail through the course by plugging in numbers. You need to start off by understanding the concept. Why are you applying the equation in this way? What is happening behind the steps? This will facilitate your understanding and you will be able to apply even if your teacher changes the question. This is the approach we use and it works.

marks in Physics 12?

Common challenges for physics 12

Physics 12 is an extension from physics 11. By now you need to master your problem solving skills. Physics 12 is more difficult because the concepts are more abstract, complex, and the application questions involves more moving parts. You will encounter projectile motion, objects colliding, objects spinning, rockets launching and so on. With each situation, your teachers can always change the variables and parameters and you need to work backwards / forward to derive the solution.

2 Tips to score higher marks on Physics 12
(from QEA Physics Tutors)

Tip #1.
Visualize the problem and draw diagrams

It’s the same important technique we teach in physics 11. This technique is even more handy for physics 12 problems, as they are more complex. You need to understand the problem by visualizing it, only then you will know what variables are involved, which equation you need to bring in, and how to combine them. Trying to plug in numbers to given equation will not get you the final answer. You have to work from the situation. And we teach this important problem solving technique in our physics 12 tutoring sessions.

Tip #2.
Don’t try to do too much in one step

A common mistake for a lot of students in that they are trying to do too much in one step. They might try to combine multiple equations into a large equation, which makes it very difficult and confusing the solve. Our approach is to break down the equation into pieces. Once you calculate each piece, you can combine them together and get a final answer. This approach will reduce the complexity and avoid having too much algebra in one equation. Therefore you can avoid making careless errors. We teach this approach in our tutoring session and it works!

FAQ for Physics Tutoring

How can physics tutoring help my child?

QE physics tutoring explains the concept in a way your child can understand, and build his or her foundation of understanding This is the basis to achieve higher grades in physics.

How is QE physics tutor different from others?

QE physics tutoring is a lesson based tutoring. This means we actively teach the lesson and go through the problems step by step.

How much is a physics tutor?

We charge a very competitive rate. It's not just the rate, but effectiveness. Our tutoring is private on one, you are being taught privately by a physics specialist. In addition, we provide weekly worksheets and homework package, mock tests and exams to help you succeed, not just answering your questions.

Should I get a tutor for physics?

Physics is cumulative, which means if you fall behind, your problem will persist and drag further behind if you wait. It's better to have a professional tutor from QEA to clarify your misunderstanding, tackle the key application problems. This will save you time, drive your performance, and help you to achieve higher grade. It will reduce so much stress from you.
