About Steven

* My Experience and Credentials *
I hold degrees from Harvard University (A.B.) and Stanford University (M.A.). I was employed as an undergraduate instructor at Stanford University.

I have special education experience from early education through secondary school levels, and have tutored extensively in New York, the San Francisco Bay area. My experience here allows students to overcome the common frustration of past struggles and difficulties. Ensure that your child has these essential prerequisites for a successful learning relationship, and the best learning environment possible.


* A Superior Writing Method *
Let me help you find success in essay composition -- you can learn life-long skills that you will use in all term papers, essays and writing. For over 10 years I have studied and learned the craft of writing and essay composition, studying and teaching language and literature at Harvard, Stanford, the Sorbonne. Learn from the secrets of my hard-won experience.

Essayistic thought deals with necessarily qualitative thoughts and matters of creativity and intuition. Learn the methods to bring rigor and precision to your writing process and your work. I will guide you from the first steps of marshaling facts and notes, to thesis development and idea organization in outlines -- all to the final step of speedy composition of your essay or term paper. You will learn the writing skills to compose essays in a fast, efficient process. The first draft typically requires very little revision.


* Experience in All Major Subjects – Major field of Literature and Philosophy *
I have assisted students in diverse fields and topics. These include:
Humanities -- English Literature, History, Foreign Literatures, Art History, Religious Studies, etc.
Social Sciences -- Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Sociobiology, Political Science & Government, etc.

My personal research focus has been literature and philosophy in German, English and Classical Ancient Greek (in translation). My research ranged from classical pagan heroic epic (Sumerian, Homeric), to Greek Stoic philosophy in the Roman Empire; medieval European Romance; the Elizabethan era of English Renaissance drama, the 18th century German Bildungsroman and Philosophical Idealism of freedom, agency, and ethical aspects of aesthetics; to English Modernism and philosophy of Wittgenstein in the 20th century.


* An Uncommon Balance of Analytic thinking & Intuition *
My personal experience has given me an uncommon balance of skills in both logic and analytic thinking (left brain) and intuition and creative thinking (right brain). My academic credentials are in the humanities, and my scholarly expertise is language, literature, and history. My quantitative skills are equally expert from both undergraduate coursework (general chemistry, multi-variate calculus, etc), and work experience in corporate research and financial statement analysis.


* My Tutoring Skills *
I offer personalized one-on-one tutoring for elementary and high school students in major subjects (math, science, history, literature).

I offer tutoring for college students in most all humanities (literature, philosophy, history etc.). I also offer writing assistance for reading comprehension and essay composition in all subjects.

* Corporate Finance *
I also offer tutoring in corporate finance, including financial statement analysis and modeling, corporate strategy, case study methods, etc.

- Harvard (A.B.)
- Stanford (M.A. granted, Ph.D. candidate).
