I love teaching students one-on-one, and I enjoy seeing their confidence and self-esteem rise as they improve academically. I am an experienced teacher, with fifteen years in the classroom as a middle school Language Arts teacher. I have a Master's degree in Secondary English education, and I have an ESOL endorsement. Since I left the classroom, I have been tutoring with students in all grade levels and all ability levels. I especially enjoy working with students in grades 3 - 10. I have a great deal of experience and proficiency in teaching English, math, writing, ACT and SAT Prep, as well as science and social studies. I also have an understanding of Spanish at a conversational level. I can teach your child specific strategies that will make him or her academically successful and more confident.

I am a very patient, organized, and methodical teacher. I will work hard to help your child improve his or her academic ability as well as enhancing your child's confidence and self-esteem. I offer a free consultation meeting to discuss your child's individual needs. I will make every effort to meet your scheduling needs, but I ask for 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a session. Because I tutor full time, I can work with your child in the afternoons, evenings, or weekends. I am also available to work with children who are home-schooled.

Your child's success is very important to me, and I look forward to hearing from you.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have passed the certification exam for elementary education (K - 6). I have also tutored elementary students, primarily in math and English, for over nine years.

Study Skills

I have taught middle school English for fifteen years, and teaching my students effective study skills was an important part of my class. In addition, I have tutored students for over ten years, and I have incorporated study skills into many of my lessons.

Great Tutor — My son has been working with Steve for a couple months. He has really improved his writing. My son struggled with putting his ideas on paper and Steve showed him strategies to use to help with that. He usually gets Cs on his report card and was very pleased when he came home this quarter with a B. His teacher even wrote me a note to tell me how much of an improvement Noah has made with his writing ...
