Year 10

Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!

All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £10 ex VAT

Physics: AQA Trilogy - Energy revision


Topic 15 begins with a recap on forms of energy and using this knowledge to draw energy transfer diagrams. We then take a closer look at kinetic, elastic potential and gravitational energy, using the vital maths skills required for the trilogy physics exam. We further our maths skills by applying equations to calculate work done and power whilst focusing on using the correct SI units throughout. The topic ends with a look at the theory behind specific heat capacity, which is one of the required practical's.

Energy Transfer

To state and describe the different forms of energy store, to draw simple energy-transfer diagrams showing changes in energy and to describe energy transfers involving gravitational, kinetic and energy by heating.

Kinetic and Elastic Potential Energy

To state what the kinetic energy of an object depends on, to calculate kinetic energy and to explain what elastic potential energy is.

Gravitational Potential Energy

To describe what the gravitational potential energy of an object depends on, to explain what happens to the GPE of an object when it moves up or down and to calculate the change in GPE of an object when it moves up or down.

Work

To define what we mean by work, to calculate work done using an equation and to apply your knowledge of work.

Power

To define power and state the unit it is measured in, to calculate the power of an appliance and to apply the power equation.

Specific Heat Capacity

To explain the difference between heat and temperature, to recall the factors that affect the energy needed to change the temperature of a substance and to apply the concepts of specific heat capacity.

Physics: WJEC Double Award - Electric circuits revision


This topic explores the relationship between current and potential difference and develops the idea of resistance. It investigates how potential differences and currents are related in series and parallel circuits and how the total resistance in series and parallel circuits can be calculated. It introduces the concept of power in an electrical circuit as the energy transferred per unit time and introduces the equations which enable the power transferred by an appliance to be calculated.

Electric circuits

To identify symbols and explain the function of components in a circuit, to describe current and to calculate the size of an electric current from the charge flow and time taken.

Series and parallel circuits

To recap the differences between series and parallel circuits, to explain what happens to current in series and parallel circuits and to apply your knowledge of current in series and parallel circuits.

Potential difference

To describe what is meant by potential difference, to describe how to measure potential difference and to explain what happens to potential difference in series and parallel circuits.

Resistance

To describe what is meant by resistance, to explain resistance in terms of electrons and to describe the difference between conductors and insulators in terms of resistance.

Ohms Law

To summarise the investigation carried out by Georg Ohm, to calculate resistance using Ohm’s law and to rearrange Ohm’s law.

Electrical power

To define power and state the unit it is measured in, to calculate the power of an appliance and to calculate the efficiency of an appliance in terms of power.

Safe & Secure

Safeguarded

Tute is used in hundreds of schools and is approved by local authorities. We conform to the highest safeguarding standards, and have the necessary tools to help support young people with SEND.

Recorded

Every Tute session is recorded. This means that we monitor every lesson and ensure the very best quality of teaching. Parents can review the lesson too, as can the student for revision.

Professional

Our teachers are qualified, and are DBS checked. As trained professionals they have a natural authority, and can manage effective and engaging classes.
