Revising for Physics GCSE just got a LOT easier…
Welcome to GCSEPhysicsNinja.com, a home-study GCSE physics revision course designed to maximise recall, build confidence and boost achievement in science GCSE examinations.
I’m Olly Wedgwood – Cambridge Engineering graduate and GCSE/A-Level physics tutor since 2001. For many years I have been helping students boost their Physics and Science grades beyond what they thought possible. I have now ‘packaged’ my tutoring system into a guided revision course so that others can also reach their full potential in physics GCSE.
To date, the GCSEPhysicsNinja.com revision courses cover the first two units of AQA Triple Science GCSE:
Courses for AQA Further Additional Science (P3) and Cambridge iGCSE are coming soon.
Boost Your Recall with a Guided Revision Programme
Each GCSE physics revision course delivers a flexible programme of guided study that is designed to boost recall and understanding.
It can support the student alongside their school studies throughout the year.
Alternatively the student can follow a timetabled revision course. A typical three month course requires about 15 minutes of study each day, with one day off per week. The same revision course taken over a shorter one month period typically requires a more intensive 45 minutes of study each day (one day off per week).
What You Get
When you sign up for a GCSE Physics Ninja revision course, you will receive access to:
- ‘Active Revision’ Flashcards (Printable downloads)
These printable flashcards work with the online video library (see below) and help the student to recall physics vocabulary, ideas and calculation methods. Each flashcard is a bitesize chunk of the GCSE course with a question on the front and an answer on the back. A simple 4-step revision process guides the student to complete each flashcard answer page and review previous questions. These flashcards reflect exactly what is required by the student’s particular examination board.
- Membership of the GCSEPhysicsNinja.com Video Tutorial Library.
I have ‘bottled’ my 12+ years of physics teaching experience into a library of bitesize 2-4 minute video tutorials, which work with the course Active Revision Flashcards. Each student has access to a virtual classroom full of hundreds of my video tutorials covering everything they need to know for their physics exam.
- The GCSE Physics Revision Progress Planners (Printable Download)
This at-a-glance planner enables each student to chart their progress through the revision course to help them to stay on target, complete each section correctly and finish the course in the chosen time.
- Ask a Question – Tutor Support
Stuck on a physics problem? Ask me a question directly by leaving a comment on the relevant flashcard page in the My Course area (please allow 24 hours for a reply). This question and answer discussion forum for each course topic provides a valuable learning resource in itself (all comments are moderated).
Enrol for… FREE!
In the UK, good private one-to-one GCSE physics tuition can typically cost £35 per hour and a student may visit their tutor once a week over a couple of terms to help them revise for their GCSE exams. That can easily add up to over £500 spent on private tuition (not including all the time and petrol travelling to and from the tutor).
In comparison, a GCSE Physics Ninja revision course provides many of the benefits of private physics tuition for… FREE!
GCSE Physics Ninja – Smarter Revision – Boost Your Grade
My aim is to improve GCSE students’ physics exam grades. Unfortunately, my one-to-one tuition timetable is often completely booked up and so I often have to turn students away… Now, with GCSEPhysicsNinja.com I am proud to offer a guided self-study revision course to give more students the opportunity to improve their physics GCSE grade.
Hi Olly, I thought you would like to know that since I started revising with GCSE Physics Ninja my school grades have improved so much (I was getting Ds and Es but now getting Cs and Bs) that my teacher is wondering what I have been doing! I told him about the site the other day so you might hear from him. anyway, thanks for an awesome revision system.
I like the way each card has a video tutorial so you can check it's the right answer. Had a test yesterday at school and got my best grade yet :)
