Established 2012


I aim to provide private tuition in a friendly atmosphere. I will work with your child to help them understand the concepts being studied, supporting and encouraging them with homework and past paper questions.

With one-to-one tutoring, I can help students build their skills and develop a positive attitude to studying mathematics and physics.


"Mr Smith is an extremely good teacher. If I don’t understand a certain subject or question, instead of putting me down he encourages me and explains it to me so that I understand it better. The homework that he sets me helps me later on with revision and tests. I like that he bases the lessons on the subjects that I am currently doing in class which helps me a lot."

"Stephen is a fantastic, conscientious maths and science tutor. He works hard to establish a rapport with the student, and meticulously ensures understanding at every step. Stephen identified at a very early stage that part of the student’s weakness in these areas was a lack of confidence. Which ultimately delivered GCSE passes in subjects in which he had consistently underperformed. Would particularly recommend Stephen for shy/socially challenged pupils, with whom he is brilliant."

"Stephen is an excellent tutor and supported our son through GCSE maths and physics. Stephen is a calm, thorough and very methodical tutor who worked with our son to find out the areas he was more challenged in and set work around these particular areas. Our son completed his GCSEs attaining a 9 in physics and an 8 in maths. Thank you Stephen for your great support and we would have no problem at all in recommending Stephen as a tutor."

Ethos and Values

At Root2Tutor my priority is to develop students love of learning inspired by quality teaching; and by building and developing upon all of their individual talents. I work tirelessly to ensure that my students enjoy a stimulating and diverse education; learning is irresistible, students are happy, feel safe and are valued. Learning experiences are rich and enjoyable.

Everything I do is to ensure that my students achieve their very best and I am deeply aware that students only get one chance at their education. It is therefore my job to ensure that they all reach for the highest levels of personal achievement and development. I want every student to be successful; to reach for success from the very first lesson so when they leave, they have a love of learning for the rest of their lives.
