About Stephanie

Hi there, my name is Stephanie and I've been tutoring for 11 years; ever since I was a freshman in high school. I did my Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis, which is a branch of psychology. I enjoy working in behavior analysis but tutoring is my favorite! I love getting to teach on a one-on-one level and seeing the progress my students make in terms of their grades in school. Seeing their confidence build is one of my greatest pleasures.

Throughout my 11 years tutoring, I have consistently focused on Elementary Math, Middle School Math, Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. The majority of my students have been between the ages of 14 and 18, although I do enjoy teaching younger as well.

I believe that a large part of what has made my students successfully improve their grades in the past is practice, so at the end of each lesson I assign some extra practice for my students to complete before their next lesson.

I am generally available most days from 11am to 9pm. My base rate is $50 per hour but I offer lesson packages at a discount-contact me for more information!

I'm looking forward to meeting you and hopefully having a lesson together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Aspergers

As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, our focus is on students with special needs, mainly Autism Spectrum Disorders and Aspergers Syndrome. I have not only provided one-on-one therapy to students with Aspergers, but have also tutored students with this diagnosis in math and reading skills.

Autism

As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, our focus is on students with special needs, mainly Autism Spectrum Disorders and Asperger Syndrome. I have not only provided one-on-one therapy to students with Autism for 3 years, but have also tutored students on the spectrum in math and reading skills.

I tutor all my students, but particularly my students on the Autism spectrum, by reviewing or teaching the material for that topic, then doing practice problems using behavior analytic teaching methods. These include beginning the practice problems by providing the most guidance and reducing my guidance in subsequent problems, such that by the end of lesson, the student is completing the problems independently. If they need some extra guidance on a particular problem, I will provide it, and then fade out my help from that problem on.

Handwriting

In the past, I have tutored students on the Autism spectrum in improving their handwriting to increase legibility. I use pre-made worksheets to improve students' handwriting using behavior analytic shaping techniques.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker and have also studied Spanish in a more formal educational setting.

Study Skills

I have not only excelled in my own studies, including primary education, an International Baccalaureate curriculum, and Bachelors and Masters degree programs, but also tutored students with many different learning styles, which has shaped my knowledge of learning techniques and how these relate to successful study methods.
