All of Stephen’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Stephen’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Chemistry

I am a certified Chemistry Teacher.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with 3rd to 6th graders at the elementary level on science, math and reading skills. I have helped my students read at one grade level above the grade they are in and also similar to and often greater gains in their math level proficiency.

ESL/ESOL

I'm certified to teach ESL through the Literacy Volunteers in the Greater Wilmington area.

I have worked mostly with students from South America who were learning English as Second Language and they achieved the first level proficiency in English as a second language. Unfortunately, they moved out of the area and we could not finish the next level.

I understand what is is like to learn a foreign language. I am fluent in German and have studied various European languages and have a strong interest in learning about other cultures, but also to share with people American culture and increase their understanding of this culture and the American English we use.


German

I am a Certifed German Teacher in the State of PA.

Phonics

Being an ESL tutor, I was taught how to teach phonics. Also being a teacher of German and having studied various foreign languages has given me a good grounding in the basics of phonics.

Praxis

As you can see I've tutored in many subjects and although I did not need to do so took the Praxis test in Chemistry, for which I received a Recognition of Excellence award for testing in the top 15%. I also scored above the requirement needed for certification for Math in Pennsylvania and Delaware and am working to have Math added to my certification.

Social Studies

I am certified for both European and World History, and fluent in German with a strong interest in world cultures.
I have taken several social science courses in college, which all provide a good basis for being able to tutor social studies.

Study Skills

Being a tutor one needs to help students develop good study habits and organizational skills in order to be successful.
This grounding can be used in general study skills work.
Additionally, I have a PA Certification in Teaching, which included a course on Content Reading. A course that I've found to be extraordinary useful in my tutoring and has helped me teach students how to decode a textbook.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
