My name is Steven, and since graduating from college I have enjoyed working in various student programs both in local schools and in my own church student department.
Because I was raised in a bilingual household, I am able to teach and explain the Spanish language in a natural, easy-to-understand manner.
In high school and college, I excelled in both math and science classes. During my college career, I completed several advanced mathematics classes up to Calculus 3.
As a successful high school and college athlete, I acquired coaching and physical education training skills which I have used from a fairly young age to help young people develop their abilities in their areas of athletics.
I truly enjoy helping young people to learn and achieve in their chosen fields of study or interest. I believe that my work with students in the past thirteen years has given me the ability to relate well and communicate effectively with children and teenagers. I look forward to meeting your student and realizing the possibilities of what we may accomplish together!
I will be offering private basketball lessons during the summer months. Please contact me early so that I can arrange gym times for our lessons.
