Information About Steve - Blandford Forum tutor - (17 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Steve:
I am an Oxford graduate who's been tutoring for ~20 years. During that I've also been involved in youth work in various churches. I have a real desire to see young people reach their full potential. Science has been a passion of mine since an early age and I hope I'm able to pass on some of that enthusiasm to my students.
In a job where experience is vital, I've been privileged to tutor students for almost two decades. It's enabled me to build up a good selection of resources, teaching materials and illustrations - as well as a very good working knowledge of the syllabus of all exam boards, including International Baccalaureate.
The focus of my tutoring is three fold. Firstly and most importantly, I love to explain. There is always a big focus on understanding and an explanation of the material specific to the syllabus the student is studying. Yet often the students find that, no matter how well they study the material - exam questions baffle them. So, I like to ensure that there is also time to look at exam technique and approaches to unlocking questions. Finally we address how to eliminate silly mistakes - which cost so many students valuable marks. I get on well with all my students and aim to make the sessions fun as well as educational. Enthusiasm and a sense of self confidence are also things students frequently discover through the sessions.

Vast knowledge and a very broad understanding of the subject. Can help you in every way possible!
I strongly recommend Mr Steve to every student.
He is excellent at explaining things and Jenny is really enjoying her tutor sessions as well as learning so much.
Update August 2011. A level results day. Jenny achieved her aim of raising her Chemistry grade from a predicted C to a good B.( in about 10 weeks of tutoring) She has been accepted at Exeter University and is absolutely delighted. Without Steve's help this would not have been possible.
Jenny had regular sessions online using Skype backed up by 2 hour face to face visits when possible, this worked extremely well and Jenny found the online tutoring easy to cope with.
It was money very well spent and I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone considering tuition - especially for A level Chemistry.
