I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.

I tutored many students during my PhD, from school leavers wanting lab experience to tutoring fellow PhD candidates in sterile tissue culture techniques. The longest tutoring project I have undertaken was supervising a third year medical student for his intercalated BSc in Physiology. He won the prize for top project in his year (mainly due to his hard work and dedication) and was a joy to teach and really fuelled my interest in nurturing younger minds. More recently I tutored a young man who wanted to take his GCSE a year early; his spoken French was excellent but the writing was letting him down. I identified his weaknesses and we worked on those to raise his grade to an 8 overall.

I've worked in higher education for a quarter of a century, with about a decade of that being at Cambridge, and most recently, at Brunel. I've taught in the UK, US and Mongolia, so have experience with a wide range of students. Within this context, I've taught academic writing, and I've helped dozens of students, both undergraduate and post-graduate, design, research, and write dissertations and other substantial pieces of research. As someone who has lectured at the University level, I've not only helped numerous students but I've also graded an even greater number of dissertations.
What this means is that not only can I help you with the writing, dissertations, coursework, I can help you understand why markers and instructors look for certain things. In other words, I can help you understand what we as graders want to see and why. And, as importantly, what we don't want to see and why. This makes for a much stronger dissertation, as you can use you own style and abilities to address what markers will feel are key issues, even if they aren't always spelled out.

Dr Steve's last completed Academic Writing job with Emily: 1-2 hrs/week - Hi I am currently doing an access to HE (psychology and sociology) course. However I am really struggling to write my assignments in academic report format and because of this I have been stuck on the same unit for about 3 months. I really need help as I would like to go to university in January and this is stopping me from achieving this goal of mine. I have tried discussing this with my assessor but she keeps saying that the attachment she send has everything I need and she cannot provide me with any more assistance.
Dr Steve's last review in Academic Writing from Emily: I have attempted to write an academic report and it had not been accepted by my assessor so I would like to go through that piece or work with you to see where I went wrong Dr Steve helped me so much with my work. He went through my essay piece by piece and made sure I understood everything. He was also very patient with me and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend him and will be definitely be using him again.
I began tutoring students to fund my PhD in English Literature, and I taught a range of syllabuses (OCR, AQA, CCEA, EDEXCEL) and levels (KS2, KS3, GCSE, A-Level and degree). In 2011, I became a Learning Mentor at a top grammar school in Birmingham - King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls - where I helped GCSE students with revision and study techniques, and supported those who had problems revising.
Fuelled by my love of tutoring, I trained to become a teacher, graduating from the King Edwards Consortium (which was rated `Outstanding` by Ofsted) in 2012. I completed my training at King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls, before taking up a teaching position at Oakham School in 2013. At Oakham, I have taught A-Level English Literature, IB, GCSE and KS3 classes.
I am passionate about all aspects of teaching English, but particularly enjoy helping students to develop the craft of writing in order to express their ideas and views more carefully and clearly. As an experienced GCSE examiner, I also know how to help students express their ideas in a way which will gain them valuable marks. Furthermore, I am fully trained to teach the IB, having attended numerous certified workshops.
Overall, I am an enthusiastic, caring, and motivational teacher: I inspire my students to achieve their potential, and I work hard to develop their self-confidence, which is key to success.

I have a PhD in Engineering and a First Class MEng (Honours) in Ship Science from the University of Southampton.

If a student is struggling I am experienced in breaking down complex concepts into a number of simple steps in order to build the students knowledge and help them to progress. Above all I aim to make the subjects interesting and enjoyable to the students.
