Information about Stephen
I currently teach secondary physics, chemistry and biology at GCSE. I also teach physics and maths at A-level. I have 8 years teaching experience. I have also been an examiner for AQA and OCR. I have experience teaching for the AQA, OCR and Edexcel exam boards and very much up to date with the new curriculum for this year.
I have a degree in physics with astrophysics. I also have a masters in Physics with Astrophysics and currently doing a Astrophysics PhD.
I provide students with a wide range of past paper questions, model answers and completed sets of revision notes. I also help students to gain top marks in their exam questions and give bespoke advise regarding exam answer expectations.
With the use of these methods students who may be lacking in confidence build knowledge and exam technique to improve their grades considerably.
Within the first session, I like to get to know my students and their particular needs. We highlight strengths and weakness and how I can best support their learning. We then put together a plan or sequence of lessons that are tailored to that student and I am very flexible with subject content.
Within the classroom or online, I am a very caring teacher who is patient and friendly.
Availability: Afternoons, Evenings and weekends.
Willing to travel to students home or online.
I am very flexible with availability, so please just ask.
Willing to travel: 30 miles
Experience: I have been teaching physics, Chemistry and biology for 8 years, plus one year in training.
I also lecture physics and astronomy at colleges universities for over 10 years.
I have taught AS and A-level physics for that amount of time. I have extensive experience and knowledge with OCR, AQA and Edexcel. I can teach detailed lessons, build confidence with subject knowledge and go through exam papers with the student. My mathematics knowledge is very good and can also teach maths or help with maths within physics or as a stand alone course.

Feedback For Stephen (8)
Stephen is an excellent tutor and communicator who really helped my son with his undergraduate level studies. He is very patient, accommodating and understands different learning styles. Not only was he able to help with knowledge based issues, but also with exam technique so that my son was not only better prepared but more confident too.
Stephen has been teaching my Son A level Physics for a few months. He is now more confident and prepared for his exams. Stephen has gone out of his way to work around our timetable and has offered lessons at short notice when required. He is very knowledgable and professional. I highly recommend using Stephen.
Stephen has been teaching me a 4th year University Physics module. His teaching style and clear, concise way of explaining information has filled me with confidence in the lead up to the final exam. I would recommend Stephen to anyone studying Maths or Physics at any level. Absolutely no complaints at all!
I have had weekly sessions with Stephen for around 2 months now. He is always really helpful, friendly and explains things clearly. He has excellent Physics knowledge and useful resources, which is really helping me with my A-level Physics progress.
As a parent, it is hard to find the right tutor for your child and my daughter has always enjoyed but struggled with Science. I have been looking for a tutor that could improve her grades and confidence in Science. Stephen`s profile was impressive, I looked at his experience on his profile and saw that he had teaching experience with A levels and at university. This has really shown in how he plans and delivers his lessons. We already have an overview of the subjects that we are going to cover over the next couple of weeks. I`m also really impressed with how he delivers the lessons. My daughter is really engaged with the lessons and Stephen always ensures that my daughter has an opportunity to ask questions or relay what she has understood. Stephen also emails the PowerPoints used and this has helped my daughter with her revision as she is able to refer to the PowerPoint. However, the most amazing thing to see is how much Stephen has inspired my daughter not only to consider science for her A levels but also for her undergraduate degree. I really can`t thank him enough for this and the effort he goes to in each lesson! Thank you Stephen!
Our son has had a few A Level Physics lessons with Stephen and says that he feels more confident with the subject matter. We have recently booked more lessons and hope to see continued progress.
Stephen has been helping me prepare for my A Level Physics examinations. He is knowledgeable about the subjects and explains things calmly and patiently. He has kindly shared his own resources with me to help me. I would highly recommend him as a tutor to anyone needing an A level physics tutor.
Our son is in his first year of his A level physics and was struggling with it. Stephen has been tutoring him for just over a month and has already helped him increase his knowledge, understanding and confidence within physics, he always tailors the lessons to our sons needs and we highly recommend him
