STEP Preparation Classes

These one-day courses are designed to help students prepare for their STEP exams. These exams are designed to test applicants’ problem solving skills. As such, there are no set formulas students can use to answer questions. Instead, our tutor will get students thinking mathematically and outside the box. They will teach the class how to approach and answer STEP questions and provide techniques students can use if they get stuck. This course will give students the skills they need to practice confidently at home.
Please note: students attending the course are expected to have a thorough subject knowledge of the areas described in the course structure. Each session will focus on approaching and solving a variety of STEP problems in each area, as opposed to revising subject knowledge.

Structure of the Day

The course runs from 9.00am to 5.30pm.

Registration is at 8.45am.

There will be a one-hour lunch break and a break in the morning and afternoon sessions.

Lunch is not provided but there are places to eat in and around the campus.

Ryan

Tutor: Ryan Reavette

After graduating from the University of York in 2015 with a First Class MMath degree in Mathematics and Physics, Ryan worked for Applied Intelligence; the technology consulting arm of BAE Systems. He returned to academia in 2017 to begin his PhD, working towards a non-invasive means of diagnosing heart failure through analysing arterial haemodynamics. 
 
Ryan has several years’ experience in the one-to-one tuition of student of all ages in a range of exams, leading group courses, and teaching classes of undergraduates at Imperial College. He is incredibly passionate about education, and believes the key to success is to develop not only a comprehensive subject knowledge, but also the confidence the tackle complex problems independently.
