About Steve

Hi. My name is Steve, and I would like to help you understand, and come to enjoy, the subject that I love – physics.

I have a pretty good background in the subject, having obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Cambridge, England and then a Master’s and PhD from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am comfortable with even quite advanced subject matter, but I really love to teach students of all ages and experience levels, particularly beginners.

In my "day job" I work as an educator at the Museum of Science in Boston, where we aim to offer a fun learning experience to every visitor. It’s quite a challenge, but helping someone to attain a deeper insight into a physical phenomenon with some simple equipment and a little patience is the most rewarding thing I know, and this is what I aim for as a tutor too.

Physics is not a subject that comes easily to everybody. Perhaps that is because it requires skills that we are not born with and that we may not have had a chance to acquire in school. Please be assured though - they are skills that we can all develop, given the right combination of hard work, perseverance and a skilled teacher. So whatever your situation – maybe you’re struggling in class and you need to improve your grades, or you have a big exam coming up that you feel unprepared for - please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.

Together we’ll get through it, and we’ll have some fun in the process.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Physics

I have a Master's degree and PhD in Physics from Heriot -Watt University and a bachelor's in Physics from the University of Cambridge in the UK. I have tutored as a graduate student and postdoctoral research associate and now I am an educator at the Museum of Science in Boston, MA.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor who cares!

Steve is a great tutor! He is very methodical when teaching algebraic equations and super patient. He really tries to accommodate your schedule to tutor you. He is very thorough and even follows back up to see how you did on tests and quizzes. I would highly recommend Steve to tutor you!
