About Stephen

I'm a master of the English language (with fiction and poetry widely published and a recipient of poetry and fiction awards), and a passionate and compassionate instructor with extensive experience teaching students from K - 6 and also college level.

I start where the student is, and find creative ways to engage the student based on his or her own interests. I make all attempts to make the student feel safe to take risks in order to learn and grow.

As a certified yoga instructor, I also encourage a calm state of mind in which the student is better able to focus.

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.
