Information about Steve

SDM Tutoring - Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, Astronomy and General Science Tutoring

Whether you are looking for long term lessons to build confidence and reinforce understanding, or if you need some revision and exam practice on the lead up to exams then our expertise and friendly approach will help you on the way to success.

PGCE from the University of Warwick and a Master in Physics (MPhys) from Leicester University.
PGCE from the University of Sussex and Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Chemistry from University College London.

We always offer a free introductory meeting with potential students and parent(s) - to discuss any needs and answer any queries before booking lessons.

Discount available for paired sessions of £5 per student
One free lesson out of every ten (10th half price) - any combination of subjects

GCSE Astronomy is not offered in many schools but anyone interested can take lessons with us and ask your school if they are willing to enter you for the exam as a private entry, can sit exam at school giving you an extra and rare GCSE qualification.

Availability: Generally weekday evenings, weekend mornings - during school holidays this becomes more flexible to any day of the week but preferably mornings/evenings.
We do not usually take block bookings and work on a week-by-week basis, although once a student is regularly taking lessons it can generally be at the same time each week. Flexibility is appreciated on occasions due to other commitments such as parents evenings/late meetings/family holidays etc.

We are based in Dursley which is well within travelling distance of Cam, Wotton, Stroud, Thornbury, Tetbury, Uley, Charfield, Kingswood, Coaley, Frocester, Frampton, Berkeley and other surrounding villages. There are some possibilities of tutoring in Yate, Winterbourne and nearby areas. We usually prefer to teach lessons at our address but can travel to the student`s home depending on location - this can be discussed on individual basis.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: Steve has been teaching for 14 years in secondary schools/academies - currently he is teaching in his fourth establishment and has previously been Head of Physics for several years. Leema has taught at one secondary school for over 10 years. We have taught all age groups (Y7-13) and all ability groups, from high achieving students to those with special needs. Our roles involve teaching of general science at KS3 (all topics), similarly at GCSE although much more experienced with Physics and Chemistry topics as these are our expertise. Steve has taught A-level Physics every year so far with some experience of teaching IB Physics, and the high level maths required in this subject means he is confident in teaching maths up to GCSE with potential for some topics at A level. Leema has plenty of experience teaching A-level Chemistry. Our private tutoring experiences are substantial over the past few years, having successfully tutored students at GCSE and A level - the feedback we have had is always positive and until now have gained students from word of mouth recommendations.

Steve is an excellent tutor, he calmly and efficiently works through complex problems and concepts to explain them clearly; in a way that really helps build understanding and which enables you to work things out when he isn`t around.

Leema is a brilliant tutor- she is really approachable and helpful, she explains concepts really clearly and has a great sense of fun. This makes sessions with her really relaxed as well as hugely informative and helpful. Wonderful for boosting confidence as well as knowledge!
