Stephen is an intelligent, dynamic and creative tutor.
He has a Masters in English Literature from Oxford University and a PGCE in Performing Arts.
He has worked as Head of English at NewVic (Newham), Head of Performing Arts at Spelthorne College and was Curriculum Team Leader in Performing Arts at Westminster, Kingsway College. Stephen has extensive experience teaching GCSE and ‘A’ level English Literature, Language and Theatre Studies, but has also tutored students through LAMDA examinations.
He achieved Grade One results in his most recent Ofsted teaching inspections. This year, all four of his GCSE English tutees achieved A* in Literature.
Stephen has successfully tutored students into Dulwich College, Haberdashers, Emmanuel and Whitgift for the agency previously, and currently has students preparing for Alleyn’s, JAG’s and Roedean at 11+. He only takes on one or two entrance examination students each year and his success rate so far is 100%.
Stephen’s interests include writing, cooking, literature and going to the theatre.
Words are not enough to express my gratitude to Stephen F for his outstanding performance when he prepared my son for his GCSE’s in English.
What really stood out was that apart from the good quality tutoring, Stephen believed in my son and this gave him the much needed confidence to improve his grade.
With Stephen’s involvement and unwavering support as a Tutor, we were able to persuade the school to allow M to do a higher grade tier rather than a lower grade tier in English Language that he was registered for. During what was a very stressful period for the whole family, Stephen wrote letters to the school persuading them that he was capable of achieving a higher grade with the additional tutelage he has provided.
M is presently undertaking his sixth form. This would not have been possible without Stephen’s intervention and assistance in persuading the school to register him for the higher tier examination in English.
Once again, I want to express my sincere gratitude to Stephen for the outstanding service he provided and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
