What to do....bad A-Level Physics teacher? watch

    • Thread Starter

    People complain that their teachers just use powerpoints every lesson, well they are lucky that their teacher puts that effort in. My teacher reads the textbook out and then explains stuff as we go along. But when we're stuck he tells us to just think really hard about it at home because we need to be "independent" . When I wanted help he was complaining how he spoon feeds me. We only have him for an hour so that's good but can you really learn a-level physics like this?

    Tell him if he wants a bad record for class grades, carry on with what you're doing.
    No, you can't learn like that; he's supposed to be a board you can bounce questions off.
    Tell him to go slower as well, and/or if there's a class rep meeting system say it there, or tell another teacher.

    Do the nicer things first, but if it is ridiculous (use your own judgement for that), pester/complain further, or take it to somewhere where you'll get notice.

    Try and find a Physics tutor if you can?

    When you pay a lot of money for your school why to take a private tutor if the teacher is not able to provide all information? You go to school to learn from your teacher, otherwise you would choose homeschooling...

    So ask him to cooperate or complaint against his teaching.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
