Information about Stephen

After a long career in journalism, I have worked in the education sector for the last 10 years, firstly as a Cover Supervisor/Learning Support Assistant in a secondary school and then as a Learning Mentor in a primary school before becoming a 1-1 tutor five years ago.

My tutoring subject is English, which I studied to degree level, for KS3 and KS4 - particularly the all-important English Language GCSE.

I had previously taken GCSE classes in school and in a group tuition environment.

I am a good communicator and get on particularly well with young people - I am also a qualified football coach and have trained a number of school and youth teams.

Although I have passed retirement age, I enjoy working still and feel that I can definitely be of benefit to students wishing to top up or revise their learning. In fact, I can truthfully say that out of the many pupils who came to me after failing their English Language mock exams, only one failed to pass with a C - or now 4 - grade when it came to the GCSE proper. One even got an A (now 7)!

I have an Enhanced Certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service, clearing me to work with young people.

I have found that the main problem with under-achieving pupils is a matter of confidence, time management and knowing how to handle the questions. I can give them that confidence and the tools to deal with the questions in the time allocated.

Steve has been tutoring my son for almost two months, I have noticed my son has become more confident with English and has made improvement. Steve assessed his needs and has tailored his lesson around my son’s weaknesses. He has shown a professional approach and has created a strong, happy and relaxed relationship which is a perfect environment for learning. I would highly recommend.

Steve is everything that we hoped for when we searched this site. He is always punctual and displays a very caring manner.
We sincerely believe that Steve can help our daughter to catch up on her English studies and achieve a better than expected result from her GCSE exam this year. We owe him a great big thank you.
