Information about Steve
I have been a teacher in local secondary schools for over 25 years. In the last few years I have also helped various students with private tuition. I can do some distance working until we are able to meet face to face.
I am able to tutor all Science subjects, Year 9 up to GCSE/iGCSE.
For over 20 years I have worked as an examiner for several exam boards, giving me a good insight into the way students need to structure answers to gain the best marks. I also help seed questions for AQA, and act as a team leader for markers. The current boards I work for are AQA, OCR, Edexcel and IBac.
With my increasing Exam work I have decided to leave teaching and focus on the work with the exam boards and one to one tuition. This means I can dedicate more time to producing good quality individually structured lessons.
My tutoring is based around three principles: understanding, recall and past paper work. The focus on the lessons will depend on the needs of the student and building their confidence.

Feedback For Steve (24)
Steve is an absolute legend, those are my daughters words not mine, he took her from a grade 3 and a U in Year 10 combined science to a 6 and a 5 at GCSE.
Steve helped our son enormously in achieving great grades in his GCSE`s. Before Steve began tutoring him it was suggested by the school that he should take Foundation level. Steve`s help assisted him in achieving a 9, 8 and 7 in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Thanks
Fantastic tutor who makes understanding easy. Highly recommended.
Steve has always come well prepared, full of enthusiasm and tailored his tutoring to suit my daughter`s needs at all times. He has been professional and easy to engage with and has provided tutoring for to prepare for Combined science retake exam for 10 weeks. I would highly recommend him to anyone. My daughter has gone from a 5/6 to a 9/9 in her GCSE combined science retake following 10 weeks tuition from Steve. He helped her to stay focused and on learning the right information. He was always on time, well prepared, positive and approachable. I would highly recommend his tuition to anyone.
Steve has been coaching my daughter (GCSE Science) now for a few weeks and she is really pleased with the progress she`s making. Steve is organized, very clear and focused in his explanations and packs a lot in during the hour slot. As a consequence of these additional lessons my daughter is feeling more engaged and prepared for her forthcoming exams - strongly recommend.
So far lessons have been going well. My son doesn`t always connect with the Tutoring, but in this instance he has said he is benefitting from Steve`s lessons.
Steve tutors in a methodical, logical way that really suits our daughter. He is clear on instruction and very patient. We would highly recommend him.
From the start Steve was focused and planned in his approach. Good classes and test papers which have really helped our son. Great tutor.
My son looks forward to his lessons even at weekends! The way Steve delivers information is accessible for both beginners and high achievers. Learning seems effortless. Information stays in. All the anxiety and tension of GSCE exams are gone. Simply gone. Can`t recommend highly enough.
Very nice teacher
Steve is a brilliant Tutor, he thought my Son triple science and he has achieved really good grades 7-8 in GCSE`s. I am so impressed that I am going to engage his services to teach my younger daughter for her GCSE`s.
Steve was excellent. My daughter`s grades and confidence improved quite quickly after starting lessons with him. He also coached her on the best way to answer exam questions which in turn helped her with other subjects as well.
Friendly, professional, dependable - Steve has built a good rapport with our son and has been able to improve upon his performance in the run up to the GCSEs. He is knowledgeable, patient and effective. Would strongly recommend
Steve helped to focus in on understanding the concepts of the different elements of GCSE combined science. He was consistent and reliable, and increased confidence hugely, providing structure and focus - and ending in amazing results! Many thanks.
Steve`s experience has helped me with past paper questions and the appropriate answers to them. This gave me more confidence to do these questions in class and exams. He is patient and very helpful when talking me through struggling topics, and I would highly recommend him.
My daughter has been having tutor sessions with Steve for a few months now leading up to her GCSE`S. He`s been helping her with chemistry & physics as she found these particularly difficult. She`s now well into her exams and has really benefited from his help, he focused particularly on the areas she found difficult & she is much more confident now. I wouldn`t hesitate in recommending Steve he`s been a great help.
My daughter is very pleased to get Steves tuition.
Steve has been most helpful in helping my daughter with Chemistry for her upcoming GSCE exam. He explains topics in a way that she understands and is happy to give an update on progress post lesson. Always punctual. I would definitely recommend.
Steve is patient and has a quiet and calm manner. He is obviously very knowledgeable and is helping my daughter with GCSE triple science; school classes can be very rushed and it`s invaluable to have this one to one teaching.
Steve is a brilliant Tutor and really helped my son achieve his best.
Steve has been very reliable. My daughter has only had a few lessons so it`s early days but I`m very happy so far. He has been very professional.
Steve has given my daughter a lot of confidence about tackling the GCSE papers in Chemistry and Physics to ,aximize her marks. He`s been really good at finding out what she hasn`t understood in class and tailoring the lessons to what she needs
Fantastic tutor. So helpful and provides really good resources. I can see a huge difference in my ability in just a few months. Highly recommended. If you need a science tutor this is definately the person id choose.
Steve is a very thorough and very adaptable tutor. He is willing to teach my son any topic in Science and Chemistry, that is needed. My son thinks Steve`s teaching of exam technique has improved his chances of a better grade. There are a few weeks to go yet before exams but we are extremely pleased that Steve is helping my son with his studies and would recommend students that need help getting a better result in Physics or Chemistry to arrange for Steve to help tutor.
