All courses are redesigned for the new 2019 STEP syllabus.

–Easter (2019) holiday combined 5-day STEP I/II , 7th – 13th April, and 4-day Stats and STEP III , 15th – 18th April, course to cover all of the pure mathematics for STEP II and III, plus Probability and Statistics.

The class schedule for Easter is:

  • The STEP I / II part : Sunday 7th – Saturday 13th April –

  1. Sunday 7th April:  : Number theory, counting, sequences and series ,
  2. Tuesday 9th April : more sequences and series and Algebra and functions,
  3. Wednesday 10th April:  Trigonometry,
  4. Friday 12th April: Trigonometric integration and Calculus,  [afternoon not on STEP I syllabus],   and
  5. Saturday 13th April : Vectors and Matrices, [afternoon not on STEP I syllabus]  .

The cost of the full 5-day course is £450, and it is also possible to book single day classes, for £110. There is a booking deposit of £150 for the whole course, or £40 per day class.

All classes will cover Question technique and general techniques for STEP, and notes are provided for each class.

  • The STEP III and Stats part :

  1. Monday 15th April: Probability and Statistics, (mainly STEP I and II),
  2. Tuesday 16th April: Complex numbers and polar coordinates,
  3. Wednesday 17th April: Parametric curves and hyperbolic functions,
  4. Thursday 18th April: Maclaurian series and differential equations.

The cost this 4-day course is £395 , or £110 per class, with booking deposit £150 or £40 per class.

All classes will cover Question technique and general techniques for STEP, and notes are provided for each class.

The Easter course will be held in central London, with all classes running from 1130am until 430pm.

  • April 28th 2019 up until the June 2019 STEP exams, week end classes

    held in small groups to cover the harder techniques and theory required for STEP (especially the very abstract ideas), as well as any remaining STEP issues.  The idea of these classes is to make sure that every thing is covered for STEP :

 

1. Sunday 28th April:Mechanics, 

  • includes STEP I and II mechanics questions and techniques, all topics.

Although pure is the most important topic for STEP, mechanics questions are a useful addition and can be easier.

2. Saturday 4th May : ‘Fn’-type questions [‘Fibonacci’], ‘Reduction’-formulae, and proof.

  • techniques for ‘Fn’ questions, including proof by induction and how to write it out.

 

3. Monday 6th May : Problem Solving Class i;

  • You will be given a big summary of STEP techniques, and little details that get missed, as well as the hard questions and hard bits that keep tripping every one up on certain questions, and ideas that repeat on STEP.
    So, please also remember to bring any hard problems you are stuck on for this class.

4. Sunday 12th May : Harder abstract STEP III topics – Vectors and Functions ;

-harder STEP III vectors, including vector ideas in other topics, and more on questions testing general functions ideas. – includes functions in integral questions, one-to-one and many-to-one functions.

5. Saturday 1st June : STEP I Mock class ;

-For this class, you need to save all or most of last years STEP I , 2018, and sit this timed in advance, (you can replace a few questions if you have looked at them already). We will go through this paper, discussing exam technique and question issues, as well looking at a STEP I that I have compiled, (so no one has seen before).

6. Saturday 8th June : STEP II Mock class – Problem solving class II  [follow-on from Problem solving class i].

-You will be given a big summary of STEP techniques, and little details that get missed,as well as the hard questions and hard bits that keep tripping every one up on certain questions.
So, please remember to bring any hard problems you are stuck on for this class.   [popular class]

7. Saturday 15th June : Optional ‘open’ class;

– to cover any issues students still have. Feel free to make requests for this class.

The classes will run from 11.30am until 430pm and will be held in central London in small groups, with the option to join online.

The cost of the classes is £110 per day, with a £40 deposit to book them (so, balance £70 to pay).

Alice was a great help in keeping my maths up to scratch during my gap year and making sure I was well prepared for my STEP exams. The courses she runs are fantastic and very helpful in broadening my ideas of how to approach different types of questions. One to one, Alice is very easy to chat with, she uses her great experience and knowledge to identify which topics you find difficult and then make it one of your strongest. Without Alice I don’t think I would of enjoyed studying maths this year as much as I have. Thanks Alice for all your help this year! “ – Massimo Frangiamore (obtained a place at Warwick University) [online private tuition and Easter STEP Course]

Each class will cover essential in-depth theory, new techniques for STEP, and question technique.,
