My tutoring approach
I strive to make the sessions effective, interesting, and fun while tailoring to the student's needs. Tutoring online allows the student be interactive with the whiteboard and myself. An interactive whiteboard means I can quickly posts notes or formulas on-screen that are needed, and the student can also try problems that I have posted geared towards where the student needs help. The student and I can also upload past papers and go through them interactively on screen and video.
I encourage students to ask questions so that the content and pace of the tuition can be precisely tuned to the needs of the student. Attention can be targeted at the areas where the student needs help, at the areas identified by a specific exam or curriculum, or at any areas that a student feels they might wish to explore further. With younger students, parents/guardians are naturally kept fully up-to-date on progress.
I help with students and adults of all levels with any of their needs, however, I specialise in test prep, particularly the GCSEs, A levels, SATs, ACTs, GMATs, and GREs.
I genuinely love teaching students and seeing them improve. In my spare time I am writing a mathematics book on it's uses in everyday day life, how it's found in nature and how it may be used in medicine.
Tutoring experience: 15+ years
Over the past decade I have completed over 10,000 hours of teaching and tutoring, working with hundreds of students of all ages and levels with very successful results. If a student is willing to put in the work and focus it is common to have a student go from a failing grade to an A within a few months or less. I have taught home school students, private schools and public school students both in the UK and the USA.
In addition to providing both online and in-home tuition, I have both designed the lessons and taught English, Science, and Maths classrooms online around the England and Wales for ages 8 to 19.

Stephanie is reliable, knowledgeable and dedicated. With Stephanie's help my son's confidence and abilities are growing. Many thanks.
Stephanie has really been wonderful with our little girl (who can be a bit shy!)She's been growing in confidence in her maths and has learned some cool tricks from Stephanie. We're very glad to have Stephanie helping us help our daughter.
Ella took another mock GCSE maths paper at school today and using the methods shown to her by Stephanie, she feels confident that she has done much better! It is wonderful to see a boost to her confidence. Thank you.
Stephanie is a composed, warm, nurturing and enthusiastic educator. She has impeccable manners and so has been able to negotiate the intricate relationships with our students, their parents and other teachers. She initiates the changes she wants to see and takes decisive action to remedy curricular, instructional, or behavioural problems. She actively seeks advice and models for her teaching style when presented with unique situations that require care and special preparation.As a tutor and teacher for us from August 2004 to March 2011, Ms. Andrews earned my admiration and respect for consistently demonstrating extraordinarily high levels of competence, compassion, creativity and commitment. She loves working with children and is devoted to helping those who need it.
