Information about Steven

In January 2019 I left mainstream education to become a full-time private tutor of Chemistry and offer tuition via my website.

Education has been my passion for many years. I have been fortunate to work in a wide variety of environments and different education systems, each with its own unique philosophy. This wide breadth of experience has allowed me to develop my own skills and approaches designed to get the very best out of individuals. I am, naturally, a very approachable person, and will never criticise someone for not knowing something. This is a vital characteristic for one-to-one tuition in that it allows me to very quickly develop a safe environment with openness and trust at the centre. This is combined with a high level of subject knowledge and experience as an examiner which allows me to identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses and provide targeted support in a positive way.
I am very proud of my achievements in mainstream education, and the decision to leave to pursue private tuition was not taken lightly. One of my aspirations is to help as many young people as I can and this objective is pursued via my blog. From this year, I will also be holding a series of webinars for A Level Chemistry students preparing for their final exams, allowing students to access high quality private tuition in their own homes for a very reasonable price.
I have also been a Sixth Form Head of Year for five years and have helped many students with successful UCAS applications for subjects such as Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Engineering, Physics and (yes, you’ve guessed it) Chemistry. If you have any questions about the application process then I’m more than happy to help.
My full-time occupation allows me to share my passion for all things Chemistry with secondary school students. For more information on my recent work, visit [contact detail removed]

Availability: I am a full-time tutor and am available seven days a week subject to existing bookings.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have thirteen years of experience teaching Chemistry to students of all abilities from the ages of 11-18 and have taught a wide variety of GCSE, IGCSE and A Level Chemistry specifications in both the public and private sector. My former schools were rated outstanding in all areas by OFSTED and the Independent Schools Inspectorate. As a full-time teacher of Chemistry, my subject knowledge, curriculum knowledge and expertise in the most effective teaching techniques are up to date. I also have five years of experience as an A Level Chemistry examiner for AQA.

What a wonderfully professional yet holistic approach to learning. Consistently building up confidence, test questions carefully wrapped in the fabric of the lesson with the answers for the student to find for themselves - the best way to learn, discover, and fall in love with chemistry. Delighted and can`t recommend enough!

Many thanks for your positive feedback Xenia. It has been a pleasure to be of service.

Steve has been very patient and easy-going throughout the whole process, explaining topics and making them very easy to understand. He is flexible both with lesson times and what the topic of the session will be. His methods of teaching are useful and effective and he shows how to apply the knowledge to exam-style questions by going through them together. I would highly recommend him as a tutor.

Tutors Response :

Many thanks for your positive review Offrie. It is always a pleasure to help talented and hardworking students such as yourself.
