Physical science and maths are the fundamental backbone of so much of our understanding of our world. Physics is no exception, with many people choosing the science branch all the way through school years, to VCE, and into university, raising the demand for tutor jobs in the field. There are plenty of practical applications of these skills across Melbourne and Australia, which can be enhanced with concurrent maths and chemistry skills, and lead to a lab, research, or engineering-based job. Physics is also a broad study that can help observe many different parts of the world that we live in, involving the matter and interactions of all substances, so it makes sense that you'd be in high demand. There are plenty of tutors at Superprof who are qualified and available to help students in whatever year of study they currently find themselves.
You might need tutoring to meet a particular need that you're having in relation to your studies, with a view to getting a job in the field later. A tutor when studying physics at school or university is highly practical and will often make you highly in demand for jobs later in life. In addition to this, you can work out new methods for understanding how the world really works, and bear maths problem solving skills that would be applicable to any university study later on.
Engineering is also a booming field, and to study this at university, there is the prerequisite of having studied physics, chemistry, and maths methods in high school years, so getting tutoring on the subject early on will help you know if you want to pursue a job in the field. This shows that there's also the longterm benefit if the career interests you early on because jobs can be very consistent. Another similarly related benefit is the wide range of jobs you will have access to through physics - beyond engineering, there are government, business, and technology roles all available for physicists that your tutor can help you access even if you're only in VCE.
The reasons for tutoring obviously depend on the person, but seeing as it's a highly academic subject, it's understandable that it's more likely you'd be looking for physics tutoring if you're in your final years of school or university, for them to help you understand tricky concepts you might come across. However, there may be adults and young professionals, perhaps from adjacent fields like maths and chemistry, who have to work on a particular project which requires a different skill set than their own.
These students could seek physics tutors to be shown the ropes to be able to deliver more efficiently on their project. Some specific reasons for wanting a physics tutor include: deciding you are going to be an engineer and need to get your skill set up now before you enter university; being a year 10 student who is considering doing physics and maths methods at VCE but needs help getting their skills up to scratch; university students enrolled in a science degree that takes a generalist approach to study, but who don't have a strong chemistry background; or alternatively, as mentioned, a professional conducting research within their own field that may intersect with physics in some way, thus they need a qualified professional to explain concepts to them in order to interpret their own research data effectively.
Like all science, physics has many different facets that different Superprof tutors specialise in. Here, we give you a bit of a rundown of some of the different kinds of physics that are available and what their outcomes for studies and job prospects might be, and what tutor to look for to help depending on whether you're in VCE or university.
The first kind is Classical Mechanics. The most common and rudimentary kind of physics study, it concerns the physical forces acting upon bodies, and also has sub-sections considering physics upon solids, liquids and gases. This would link directly to civil or chemical engineering as a university degree and future job and would be a broadly applicable skill set, especially with the growing construction market in Melbourne and Australia.
The second kind of physics is Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics, which regards atoms and compounds, and their effect on pressure, temperature, and volume on a macro scale; that is to say, on large physical systems. It is less likely that you'd be able to study this directly in year 11 or 12 at school, but it would no doubt be a component of VCE maths methods or physics. As it is likely you'd study this at university for the first time, you'd be new and need a tutor for this. This would probably involve lab-based or experimental work, with government and private sector contracts calling for your expertise to apply to their projects.
The final kind of physics we'll discuss here is Quantum Mechanics. This concerns the interaction of energies between atoms and sub-atomic particles, which is observable and can lead to greater understanding of the relationship between certain compounds' interactions and their effect on an object. This again requires a fundamental understanding of the study of physics to begin with, so it's more likely you'll engage with this in a university context or in your jobs directly. Nonetheless, you might be in a class of very keen high school students, so you would want to push yourself to learn about this in your own time. Job prospects would be research-based most likely, so it would be university or government work.
