About Stevi

Hello!
My experience as a teacher has been nothing short of adventure. With 3 years of experience as a certified teacher, I have learned not only to adapt my teaching style to the needs of each of my students, but also, how to build relationships and help students grow in confidence. I taught 7th and 8th grade English in urban Nashville, TN. I loved my teaching experience in Music City. Although teaching formally is relatively new to me, I began tutoring many years ago, while in junior college. I especially enjoy working with students one on one and in small groups.
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to leave my classroom and move to remote Alaska! Though it is incredibly beautiful here, I miss my students and the joy of watching them grow. I am now doing as much learning as I am teaching!


Spanish cultures, food and language are passions of mine. During my undergraduate years, I minored in Spanish and have had several opportunities to travel abroad to Spanish speaking countries. I am best equipped to help beginner and intermediate Spanish students

My teaching certification is in English and Middle grade (4-8) subjects including history and science. I am an avid reader of literature, but I also know how to pick apart difficult technical texts or heavy works such as poetry. I have proven tools for essay writing, including argumentative, expository, persuasive and descriptive. I know grammar rules and have writing tips aplenty. Though i have most experience in working with middle and high school students, I am perfectly able to work with students of all ages.

I look forward to forging new relationships with you. I hope you will contact me with your learning needs as I have an incredibly flexible schedule and am happy to help you achieve your learning goals. You can expect a reply from me within 12 hours. Please feel free to reach out with you have any further questions.

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.

English

I am certified to teach English 7-12. I have taught English professionally for 3 years and have tutored in the subject for more than 5 years. I have extensive training in analyzing texts and responding to text dependent questions.

Writing

I am certified to teach English 7-12. My trade requires that I can scaffold students into in depth understanding of complex texts and conveying knowledge through writing. My students can write proficiently in response to simple text dependent questions, short stories and all types of essays. I have tutored writing students for 5 plus years.

Stevi is one of the brightest and sweetest tutors I've ever worked with. She is so smart and will work at your own pace. Stevi is the type of tutor to put her heart and soul into each session. She tutored me for dofficult college English course and worked with me for hours on end because she genuinely wanted to help me succeed. I don't know how I'll ever repay her for that. Thank you for everyth
