Director of US College Admissions
After receiving his BA from Dartmouth, where he majored in English with a minor in philosophy, Steven came to the UK to teach in independent schools. He has taught English, Drama and Critical Thinking at many of the UK’s leading independent schools, including The King’s School Chester, Cranleigh and, for the longest period of his career, Millfield. At Millfield, Steven was a Housemaster, Head of the Sixth Form, and in charge of Admissions to US Colleges. Under his supervision, Millfield increased its US College applicants to around 25 students a year, with his students gaining places at leading US universities, most notably Dartmouth, Harvard and Yale. In addition, he helped five students win prestigious Morehead-Cain Scholarships to the University of North Carolina. Steven also interviews applicants for undergraduate admission to Dartmouth each year.
Steven instituted a highly successful SAT preparation programme at Millfield, integrating this into the existing school curriculum, and delivering teaching on the verbal sections of the test.
