review(s) for Stephen.
My daughter had Stephen as an online tutor for History A level. He seemed very knowledgeable of the subject areas and what was expected by examiners to achieve a good mark. She achieved the A grade she so very much wanted and has gone on to study History at University.
I needed to get an A grade in history in order to get into university and was struggling to score highly in essays. Stephen`s help was invaluable as he explained the flaws in my marked answers that were keeping me from scoring an A grade. He always marked essays accurately, within the day of me sending them, with constructive feedback.
I managed to get my required grade and get into university. Thank you for all your help.
Whilst we did not use Stephen, our interaction with him was very positive He was very clear as to what service he offered and very positive. For someone who suffers with anxiety and needs confidence but is looking for help in having papers marked and how to improve on exam technique rather than tutoring I would recommend Stephen.
My son is very pleased with Stephen`s tuitions and advice. Stephen can explain exactly where you are loosing your points in essays and why and how to remediate. The current email exchange setting works very well for us
Supporting my daughters specific needs for GCSE History.
Very happy so far with Stephen`s method of tutoring. My daughter is growing in confidence with her History A level essay writing and revision. Stephen is very quick to respond to any questions she has.
Stephen was professional and very quick to communicate and feedback.
Although I was sceptical about online tutoring at the beginning, within the first day of being in contact with Stephen I realised how much better this system is. With Stephen`s help I went from merely hoping to pass my A level history exam, to actually feeling like I could do really well. Stephen encouraged me to send over as many practise essays as I wanted that, he marked within the same day. This was one of the most useful aspects of online tutoring as Stephen is an examiner and was therefore able to mark my exams the way they should be marked this summer. Stephen was also extremely helpful in sending me resources to help me understand aspects of my course that I hadn`t fully understood in class and during my own revision time. This helped me consolidate my knowledge, as well as helping me write with more confidence as I began to understand my course as a whole once I filled in the more minor gaps in my knowledge. Stephen`s help this exam period has been indispensable and my success in August (exam results) will be down to his help. I was so lost and overwhelmed by revision and the exams before Stephen`s help but thanks to him I was able to walk into each exam feeling capable and calm.
A wonderful tutor who dedicates his time and passion for history.
Very useful to improve my confidence and improve my essay writing
