Information about Steve
I specialise in GCSE English Language and Literature, working privately and in schools to provide tuition one-to-one or in small groups.
I focus particularly on Years 10 and 11, helping students with content, skills and exam technique.
I also tutor for English Literature at A Level.
Availability: Weekdays, evenings after 4pm.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I hold a teaching qualification (PGCE) and a DBS clearance.
I have recently worked with pre-GCSE students via teaching agencies in their homes and also with small groups in their school.
I focus on confidence and skills-building and coach students in how to approach their exams to best effect.
Feedback For Steve (5)
Steve was lovely. Unfortunately my son started with him 3 weeks before the coronavirus lockdown and his GCSEs were cancelled so I cannot say anything about results. But I can say Steve was easy to contact, responsive, proactive and when things started changing, helpful and able to offer alternatives such as on-line teaching. He provided useful structure in the lessons and homework to help my son develop confidence and skills. I would be happy to recommend him.
Excellent targeted teaching.Very reliable.
I needed a tutor asap for my son as he had a poor mark in his mocks. Steve was the only one to reply within a day. He explained what criteria was needed to increase exam results, a better perspective on understanding the work and my son paid attention throughout the tutor lesson. Would highly recommend this tutor and will be returning for more help in the near future too.
Steve has only recently taken on the role of tutoring my son and his friend to help them prepare for the GCSE English exams in May and June.
The boys are thoroughly enjoying his lessons. They are now much more aware of and confident with the exam marking system and what they need to focus on to gain higher marks in both their English literature and language papers.
Thank you Steve. There is more work to be done but they are confident you will help them achieve the
grade they are striving for.

Thanks for the feedback! I`ve enjoyed working with the boys too - they are very well-focused.
Steve is totally professional and puts the pupil first. My son has gained in confidence in English language and literature and we have seen improved results in tests. Highly recommend.
