My name is Steven and I live in Urmston, Greater Manchester. I took early retirement in January 2018 from my position of teacher of Economics and Head of Business Studies at Urmston Grammar School.
I have over 15 years teaching experience in Trafford secondary schools with the last 13 years spent at Urmston Grammar. I have taught Economics and Business Studies successfully at both GCSE and A'level achieving outstanding results. I also work for Edexcel as an expert examiner in economics, which enables me to guide students in exam technique. More recently, I have taught maths at KS3 and tutored students up to GCSE standard.
My approach to tutoring in very student centred and focuses on identifying areas of weakness, plugging any knowledge gaps and developing good exam technique. This involves ensuring that the student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the subject specification. Then encouraging the application of that knowledge to examination questions, developing the ability to analyse the information and evaluate the outcomes in order to gain the maximum marks available.
