Phone Physics Help

Phone Physics help for GCSE and IGCSE Physics

If you would like to have physics help in your pocket then I am launching a new service called Phone Physics.

The cost is £15.00 per month. This will allow you to message via WhatsApp me questions about your GCSE or IGCSE Physics. All exam boards are covered.

Ways it could be used

  1. Take a photo of a particular question and I can help you with it either by recording a message or writing a message back.
  2. Arrange a time to call so I can guide you through the question.
