Science tuition in the Cambridge & Essex area.
Me, Caitriona Mcknight
Face to face tuition is provided in a COVID safe environment.

Cambridge Physics Tuition (CPT) provides expert home and online tuition services for GCSE and A-level Physics, and GCSE Chemistry, as well as KS3 Science and Mathematics.

The majority of students that visit me just need to gain back their confidence in Science. In order to do this I provide a personalised learning programme individual for each student, allowing students to gain confidence in the subject.

I work with students in and around the Cambridge area and in North Essex around Saffron Walden.

  • What are your qualifications / what subjects do you teach?

    I have a degree in Physics and Maths from Trinity College , Dublin, as well as a PGCE from Cambridge University. have nearly 30 years experience teaching in the state and private sector.  I cover Science and Maths at KS3Chemistry and Maths up to GCSE and Physics up to A level. 

  • What can we expect for our child in a face-to-face lesson?

    I have dedicated building that I teach from10 minute walk from the centre of Saffron Walden, Essex.  Students comment that they enjoy the environment of surrounded by comfy chairs, in an atmosphere that is very different from the classroom.

  • What can we expect for our child in an online lesson?
  • What can we expect for our child?

    Students come to me either because they are struggling with Science/Maths, lacking confidence as a result or they want to extent their knowledge beyond the classroom. It doesn’t matter which, every student wants to do the best they possibly can in exams. You can expect to see your child improve their confidence enthusiasm, knowledge and understanding of the subject. 

  • What do you expect from my child?

    Students will get the most out of tuition if they : 

    • Practice what they have learned within 24 hours of the lesson. 
    • Have a general idea of what they would like to cover. They should not be overly concerned about the details, as is my job as a tutor to establish their weak areas. 

    Also, Students to bring their own pens and other equipment as required (such as a geometry set for Maths)Student will be required, in most cases to use an iPad or alternative equipment. If they do not have an iPad, one will be provided for the session. (Surface Cleaner will be used between sessions to clean equipment)

    With respect to COVID safety  

    Students will be directed to the sink on arrival to wash their hands. We will keep  a 2m from each other The student must wash their hands before and after handling equipment, if shared.

  • What if we need to cancel a session?

    I require all parents/guardians to sign a contract, stating that they agree to pay in full, if they cancel within 24 hours.
