PMT Education is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to support students throughout their academic journey, whether they need help with exam preparation, essay writing or getting an offer from their dream university.
PMT Education started in 2014, when Görkem was working as a maths and physics tutor while at university. He created Physics & Maths Tutor in order to share revision materials and past papers with his students. Alongside tutoring, Görkem also taught courses preparing students for the Oxford Physics Aptitude Test (PAT). After realising how useful students found his PAT courses, he started working with other tutors to develop courses for a range of subjects. Thus, PMT Courses was born.
Seven years on, Physics & Maths Tutor now offers resources for all major GCSE and A-level subjects as well as for university admissions tests. We also run online and London-based classroom courses for university admissions, GCSE, AS, and A-level.
PMT Education is the brainchild of Görkem Çavlı. Görkem graduated from Magdalen College, University of Oxford in 2011 with a degree in physics. His passion for education developed while working as a tutor alongside his studies. Wanting to pursue a career in teaching, he completed a PGCE at King’s College London, qualifying in 2012. As director, Görkem oversees operations of PMT Education and is responsible for developing and implementing the organisation’s growth strategy. He is also the organisation’s technical mastermind, developing and maintaining PMT’s websites. His role ensures PMT Education is continually evolving and able to reach an ever growing number of students.
