Information about Steve

I have taught history and sociology for seventeen years and am also an A Level examiner. I studied History at Durham University, and also have a Masters degree in Modern History. I have taught a large number of GCSE and A Level classes, and have a proven track record of my students achieving excellent results. My specialism is Modern History at GCSE, and my Master`s degree mostly focused on Twentieth Century history, especially Russian History 1855-1956. I have also taught the Tudor period, Nazi Germany and the Holocaust as specialisms, and I am also very familiar with the Twentieth Century, and the 1930s especially. I also teach A Level Sociology, specialising in Education, Crime and Deviance and Theory and Methods. As well as examining A Level history for the last ten years I am also an examiner for the AQA exam board for A Level Sociology, for both the Education exam and also the A2 Crime and Deviance paper. My experience as a GCSE and A Level teacher as well as knowing what the exam boards are looking for means that I understand how to get you the best grades.

Willing to travel: 30 miles

Experience: I have been a secondary school teacher for seventeen years, and was Head of Humanities, before being promotedto Assistant Headteacher. I have taught A Level Sociology, and we achieved results in the top 10% of the country for three out of four years. My department`s A Level History results were in the top 15-20% of the country.

Steve has helped my niece greatly with her History GCSE work in just a few short weeks, covering 2 of the main topics she wanted to focus on. I would recommend Steve to anyone who was looking to build confidence and improve learning in this subject.

Steve tutored my Son over a number of months before he resat his History A level this year. Steve was an excellent tutor, really knowledgeable on his subject & an excellent coach regarding revision technique. Always punctual and never in a hurry to leave my son found his teaching style comfortable and enjoyable. The end result was a significant improvement in my sons A level grade enabling him to be accepted at the university he was aiming for. Steve is excellent and highly recommend.

***Fantastic*** My daughter has currently had two lessons from Steve so far and I cant believe the difference in her attitude and motivation. On first meeting Steve both myself and my daughter felt very comfortable with him and he got straight to work finding out where she was struggling and going wrong with her studies. Any one needing help with History and Sociology, Steve is your guy. Would highly recommend him.

My daughter has only had 1 tutor session to date but it was like a breath of fresh air for her and Steve has been easy to communicate with and make tutoring arrangements. Beth`s has another 6 sessions planned and if they are as good as the first session then we shall be extremely pleased.
