Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to visit my profile.
I studied mathematics and physics scoring over 90% at the Open University in England and taught these subjects at a High School in Switzerland for several years. I have been tutoring for over 12 years now, and have helped countless students to achieve results way beyond their expectations! I love teaching and always strive to infuse this passion into my students. Obviously, my goal is to make sure my student fully comprehends the subject he/she is studying, but I aim to do so in a friendly, fun, and encouraging way.
Okay, let’s face it… Maths and Physics aren’t the easiest subjects for most, and sadly, they’re often not the most interesting either… But I disagree! When my students experience those priceless moments where something has “clicked”, they actually start enjoying the subject more. Gradually, their confidence is boosted which is something that can have a tremendous impact on their results.
In fact, one of my students went on to study a Bachelor’s degree at EPFL in Switzerland – one of the most prestigious science Universities in Europe. This makes me proud as a tutor, and I sincerely hope to share this passion I have for many years to come.
Some of the main areas I am skilled in include the following:
- Mathematical analysis
- Statistics and probability
- Logic and strategy
- Mathematical modelling
- Quantum mechanics
Additional features that I offer to students include being able to contact me by phone or email for any support – 7 days a week! (Please don’t ring me at 2am though…!) Students have, at times, sent me their work by email, and I am happy to go through their work and write some upbuilding comments to further enhance their skills. Last but not least, I have a ridiculous amount of resources that I am willing to share (free of charge) if additional theory or exercises are required. So if you need help with General Math, Further Math, Math Methods, Specialist, Physics or anything similar, please get in touch, and start improving right away!
Costs and availability
I tutor at Preston library, mostly Mondays to Wednesdays. Please note the following non-negotiable rates:
- $55/ hour for standard one-to-one sessions (currently unavailable)

Also available for online tutoring.
Mr Biggs’ help with Spec Maths made a big difference and resulted in a great ATAR score.
Stephane was an excellent tutor.
My Year 11 son had three specialist maths sessions with Stephane to help him catch up after the Victorian school’s Covid-19 lock-down period. Stephane was a terrific help – explained content clearly and got my son back to feeling confident with this subject. Would definitely recommend Stephane and we’ll most likely be back for more help in Year 12..
My son was extremely happy with Stephane as his physics tutor for yr 12. He felt very comfortable with Stephane from the first day, and felt his explanations were clear and easy to follow. Compared to the previous tutor we had Stephane was a cut above. My experience with using Learnmate was excellent, payment was easy, never a cancellation and always on time. Thank you Stephane!
