About Steve

Biography
STOP PRESS: Feedback from results day: "A grade A in physics. I got in to my first choice so I'm happy!" "Hi Steve. Thought I'd let you know I got a B in my Physics which I'm so happy about (considering my projection was a C/D) and got into the course I wanted. Thank you so much for the support, it really helped me out." [From student's mum] "She got an A in physics - we're all in shock! Thanks so much for all your help tutoring, we're convinced it made all the difference." "Thank you very much for all of your time and support...I got a C in physics :). It was a pleasure to work with you and can't thank you enough!" [Student re-took physics A level having first received a U. The C grade secured a higher level apprenticeship with Rolls Royce]. "Hellooo, B in physics, I'm really happy. Thankyou so much!" [Student initially contacted me after receiving a grade E in physics A level mock exam]. "Thankyou for all the help and support you have given me in Physics. I appreciate it so much! I wouldn't be where I am today without you!" I am a physics teacher with a wealth of experience in teaching both A level and GCSE to the very best students as well as those who struggle for the past 18 years. Outside of teaching I love to cycle and clocked up nearly 6000 miles last year. I'm crazy enough to go wild camping even when it's snowing and I'm just getting into photography which goes well with adventures in the mountains. I have a daughter and two sons of my own so I understand the family dynamics that go with preparing for exams, though at 25, 23 and 21, mine have now moved on from school (phew!). I also enjoy playing guitar which often seems to go hand-in-hand with physics: I'm told that Einstein was a pretty good on the violin!

Tutoring Experience
I have been teaching Physics at both GCSE and A level for the past nineteen years and have consistently inspired and engaged students to gain impressive success and take physics on to higher levels - indeed I can count seven of my past students who are now physics teachers themselves! Having taught all exam boards (as well as International A level and IGCSE) I have excellent experience in securing the best possible outcomes for students of all abilities thorough effectively teaching the subject material together with developing good examination technique.

Lesson Planning
Online tutorials are always tailored to the needs of the individual to ensure that the best progress is consistently made. I have also built up a great bank of resources which enables me to provide excellent support both in the tutorial itself as well as through consolidation work as follow up to the tutorials. These combine to make a powerful learning experience through which I have seen impressive success.

Exam Board Experience
Having been teaching for nearly 20 years, as well as almost five years of tutoring, I have taught all exam boards including international qualifications. In addition to teaching and tutoring physics I have been the examinations officer at a large academy, an assistant principal and the school SENCO. I have a comprehensive knowledge of the whole exams process as well as experience in supporting all students to reach their best.

Student Success Stories
"I got an A in physics. I got in to my first choice so I'm happy!" Thanks for all the support! You managed to get me from an E/D to a B and got into Warwick! I highly recommend working with Steve....
