Steve Dixon


Welcome to Wolsey Hall! I look forward to helping you in your chosen Science.

I am passionate about science and education and believe with practice, guidance and effective communication that all students can achieve their academic goals.

I have taught Science for over seventeen years and have a wealth of experience in both teaching and tutoring across the three Sciences. I have taught Science at several schools in the UK and New Zealand, most recently at Christchurch Boys’ High School. In addition to classroom teaching, I also tutor Science and Maths online. Currently, I am focusing on providing online tuition as I enjoy being able to help on a one to one basis and like having the time to be able to give detailed feedback on assessments.

I was born and raised in the deep south of New Zealand where I spent my youth playing cricket in the summer and Rugby in the winter, along with the occasional spot of skiing. I studied at the University of Otago before moving up to the University of Canterbury to undertake a Masters. During this time, I was given the opportunity to play rugby overseas where I met my wife. We now have two boys, Jake and Lucas, aged nine and six.

Outside of the areas of Science and education, I enjoy anything that involves getting active in the outdoors. Family trips and taking my boys to the beach are among my favourite past times.

I look forward to working with you on your chosen course in the near future.
