Stephen is an extraordinary tutor who, through his vast experience and love of Arts and English, is recapturing my childs love of learning. He is supportive, encouraging and instinctively knows how to pitch the work so it provides the right level of challenge. We feel like we have a hidden treasure in Stephen as his approach and educational philosophy closely match our own. We look forward to continuing to watch our child grow in skill and confidence under his guidance.

Goodness me, thank you for that. I’m absolutely loving working with you and Edward.
