Tutors Response :
Thank you, Leon. It was always a pleasure working with you and I wish you all the best with your Higher Education plans. I am confident you will succeed!
Steve has been helping my daughter to prepare for her approaching Chemistry A Level. He has been able to provide a wealth of questions focused on the areas that my daughter wishes to cover and when they work through questions together my daughter finds his explanations clear and his approach reassuring. She is enjoying his lessons.
Steve is very kind and supportive. He explains the content clearly whilst remaining specific to course. I have learnt much through tutoring with him :)
Steve is an excellent tutor who provides very good practice resources for when I want more exam focused revision. He is patient and organised and takes the time to fully explain a question and the theory behind it before moving on. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
Very great teaching my daughter really understands his teaching
Steve is helpful, knowledgeable and organised and he always gives the full hour even when when the site goes down mid lesson. Would highly recommend.
Steve tutored my son for his chemistry A level from January in his final year. He was originally predicted an A grade but had slipped behind during the Autumn Term. Steve is well organised with a wealth of experience; he quickly developed a connection and was instrumental in getting my son back on track for the strong A grade he achieved.
I would like to recomend Steve.
Online A level Chemistry sessions with Steve are going well. He is patient, explains things clearly and makes the subject interesting. Steve is organised and provides information sheets and questions for homework. Highly recommended.
Steve is an excellent Chemistry teacher and very knowledgable. My son likes his lessons and he told me that after his first lesson he already feels he has already improved. We are very happy with Steve highly recommend.
Steve taught our daughter in preparation for Chemistry GCSE. His very caring, reassuring, calm and methodical approach was everything she needed to build confidence and competence in this subject. Steve is an extremely helpful, reliable and outstanding tutor. His attention to detail in the exceptional notes he provides show his dedication and certainly motivated and enabled our daughter to progress to top level grade. It has been a pleasure to work with him and we couldn`t recommend him more.
Steve is a great tutor who makes the subject clear for my daughters. Unfortunately, it all came to an early end due to Covid19
My Granddaughter was very impressed with the professional approach that Steve takes. They did and she understood the same work that she did in the last 6 lessons at The Royal High School. She is inspired.
