I am currently working as an R&D Propulsion engineer at Space Systems Loral supporting the design and manufacture of a next-generation propulsion system.

I've graduated from USC with an M.S. in Astronautical Engineering and living my dream of being a rocket scientist. I previously graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering. I want to be known as a great engineer that helped mankind in some small but meaningful way. My greatest passion is to build a spacecraft to take humanity to the stars.

I love to tutor math and science to people in hopes of aspiring them to join me in engineering! I would like to create more awareness and passion for all STEM fields. I like to explain the how and why behind a subject so that they can understand the problem from a very fundamental point of view.

My expertise in tutoring have been in the ability to help students that have problems with focus and motivation to learn the subject. I have taught many students with disciplinary problems as well and have helped them patiently go through step by step with their questions.

Feedback and progress reports are essential to having a great learning experience and I am committed to offering my students accurate assessments. With a positive attitude and a wiliness to learn, no subject is too difficult to understand. I hope to be helping you soon!

Very patient and explains well — My son had the first tutoring session last week and Steven was very patient and explained very well so my son could understand geometry. He took the retake the next day and the score was really good. As a teenager, he does not say much, but I am sure that he was excited to understand the concept! Thank you very much Steven. ...
