Welcome! I tutor STEP and MAT online wherever you are.
Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. I provide private tuition to students preparing to take the Sixth Term Examination Papers (STEP) and the Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT).
On first review most students will find the STEP and MAT papers difficult and even intimidating. The questions are designed to test qualities like insight, originality, and the ability to use standard techniques in unusual ways and situations not required for achievement at A-Level. But with practice and expert help students can develop the type of Mathematical thinking and approach that will enable them to tackle the papers with confidence.
Talented students may be used to regularly achieving above 90% in Maths exams. STEP and MAT are not like that. They are meant to be difficult. Just answering a small number of questions correctly in the time is a significant achievement. Accepting and understanding this is important to retaining optimism and focus. The rest is a combination of talent and hard work. Just as importantly embrace and enjoy the challenge!
