You could use something like the 1930s adding-machine in Barnet Museum shown above - but only for simple arithmetical operations! A modern calculator is more convenient and flexible :-)

Tips for getting the most out of your tuition

Get hold of a specification (syllabus) online or from a teacher. Example keywords for an online searches are GCE Edexcel physics specification. And It is helpful to have more than just your textbook, e.g. a revision-style book such as CGP or Letts.

Before each tutoring session, read ahead to see what difficulties you'd like to discuss.

At the start of the session, make sure you have everything you need.

During the session, don't be afraid to ask if you don't understand any points being explained.

Immediately after the session, go over what's been covered and do any tutorial assignments given to you while they are still fresh in your mind.

Once you have covered enough ground in your syllabus, you will find past papers are invaluable.
