Steve is enthusiastic and dedicated. He brings subjects to life and makes the sessions enjoyable. He makes an effort to know your child well and tailors his sessions to suit your child and their capabilities which inspires confidence. This is exactly what is needed in the stressful run up to GSCEs!

Steve tutored my daughter in AQA GCSE Chemistry and Physics specification. We were very pleased with the content of his lessons and tailoring to suit areas of the subjects she needed to give attention to, whilst also ensuring the required curriculum was covered. Steve was very reliable, always professional and we had trust in the lessons he was teaching.

Steve has a very professional approach to tutoring and clearly spends time preparing explanations and worked examples ahead of the lesson. My daughter is preparing for her GCSE maths exam and I am sure that Steve’s structured teaching method will help her understanding of the syllabus. He is always punctual and very polite.

Steve taught our daughter for A level OCR biology. She was struggling with the course and particularly needed refreshing over the school lesson topics. Steve was a cheerful and reliable tutor and brought the added value of a different teaching style from her school lessons that reinforced what she had done at school but ensured it wasn’t just boring repetition. She was predicted to achieve a C/D grade by the school in her last report but has just got her A’ level result of a B!

Steve has been a great tutor. We’ve covered a lot of topics for both AS and A2 AQA biology. Steve is very professional and his style of teaching is very clear and organised which makes it much easier to understand the content. With Steve’s help I’ve managed to improve my confidence in a lot of the topics I initially found had to understand.

Sarah (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

We found Steve to be very thorough in his approach to teaching.

He has covered various topics in GSCE AQA chemistry physics and biology. He discovered that there were many gaps in our son’s understanding of several topics and therefore ensured that they went back to basics before they moved on to the next subject. We only wish we had started the process sooner!

Steve was very professional in his approach and always reliable.

We are delighted with Steve. He is a most efficient, reliable, thorough and organised tutor who makes sure that each lesson is prepared in advance. He tailors each session specifically to my daughter`s needs. We have only had a few lessons so far but my daughter`s confidence and ability in the subject has already improved.

Steve is a very affable, organised tutor. He has always been punctual, willing to change tutoring times if the need arises and gets on with my son very well. He has planned the maths tutoring so that Ethan progresses with higher graded tasks once basics have been mastered. This appears to be working and hopefully will culminate with a decent pass grade come the summer.

Mr Steve, is a wonderful tutor. He explains himself very well, using notes, powerpoints and extra knowledge. He ensures that you completely understand the topic he is teaching by using past paper questions, so that you can demonstrate your understanding.
Overall, I am very pleased with his teaching and hope to succeed in Biology due to his teaching.
