Information about Steven
Hello, my name is Steven, given the current situation I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. I am still available to tutor but given the current situation I tutor via video link. I was tutoring this way long before the current situation arose and over the years I have developed methods that make this approach very effective for my students.
I am a fully qualified and very experienced professional Science and Maths teacher and tutor.
I am also an examiner - I mark real GCSE exam papers for one of the largest exam boards.
I understand that leaning one-to-one can be daunting for most students but you will find me both friendly and patient.
I have a strong academic background (Master of Science with Distinction and Bachelor of Science with Honours) and from my many years as a teacher a deep understanding of Science and Maths, and how students can misunderstand them.
This strong subject knowledge together with my excellent tried and tested teaching skills have been very successful in allowing me to tutor young people and help them improve their grades at KS3, GCSE and A level.
This is a very important time for all year groups as clearly they have missed a lot of school during the last 18 months. However, I can help you! An hour a week lesson with me will make a lot of difference.
Daytime - available in the mornings and afternoons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (for A level students who have "free periods" or for home schooled young people).
Monday no vacancies.
Tuesday 5:10pm to 6:10pm and also 8pm to 9pm - available.
Wednesday 8pm to 9pm - available.
Thursday 8pm to 9pm - available.
Friday no vacancies.
Weekends: no vacancies
Availability: (Please see main section for availability).
Willing to travel: 3 miles
Experience: I am a fully qualified and enthusiastic teacher with 10+ years experience as a classroom teacher. I have taught in several different schools and across all secondary Key Stages, from KS3 through GCSE to A level. I have also been head of A level Physics. I am an experienced tutor who has helped students make significant progress and improve their grades.
My approach to tutoring:
Science and Maths are fun, and learning them should be engaging and interesting too. When tutoring, I seeks to uncover a student`s weaknesses and then help them to improve whilst enjoying the process of learning.
Why choose me?
Being a professional teacher means that I have a deep understanding of:
* The subject.
* Specifically what needs to be learnt for your exams and what does not (the specification).
* Different teaching and learning techniques to help young people learn.
Many tutors are not qualified teachers and cannot provide ALL of the above - there is a big difference between understanding the subject and being able to teach it effectively...
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, whether you choose me as your tutor or not I wish you good luck !

Highly recommend Steven like a tutor.
He is really a wonderful teacher. Being a teacher can`t be easy . It takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice. That`s why Steven not only a tutor, he is authority and guide, all rolled into one person.
Steven uses different techniques and methods to make tuition classes interesting and useful.
I am very grateful to Steven for his support and kindness.
Amazing tutor, always on time. Comes prepared for the lesson. Very professional
Knowledgeable and patient. Very pleased with the tutoring and have already seen improved confidence and school work.
Being a teacher Steve not only has great knowledge but an understanding how how to revise and exam technique. It was easy to contact Steve via tutor hunt and set up a meeting. Amanda
Steven is extremely thorough and well prepared. He is well informed on likely exam topics, and relates very well to our Son. Midway through GCSEs, our son feels more confident in approaching the exams and well prepared, therefore not nervous or anxious - applying the knowledge and principles he has learnt from Steven.
