I love math, and love to teach it
I have been teaching and tutoring math since I was in college, and have been doing it professionally for the last 15 years. I tutor mostly high school and college students, but I have tutored 3rd grade thru univesity too. I enjoy math and I have many different ways to approach difficult subjects. I am NOT big on memorizing formulas, although there are a few that DO need to be memorized. I try to approach math from a logical perspective so that the formulas and functions make sense. I am...
I have been teaching and tutoring math since I was in college, and have been doing it professionally for the last 15 years. I tutor mostly high school and college students, but I have tutored 3rd grade thru univesity too. I enjoy math and I have many different ways to approach difficult subjects. I am NOT big on memorizing formulas, although there are a few that DO need to be memorized. I try to approach math from a logical perspective so that the formulas and functions make sense. I am especially fond of Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus (which is basically a review of all math learned to that point, plus a little Calculus thrown in), although I am most experienced with Pre-Algebra and Algebra. And of course there is Geometry, Finite Math, Calculus (I only tutor Calculus 1, aka Calculus AB, at this time), SAT / ACT / CBEST / GED / CSET / CSET / CLEP / TExES math preps (gosh, I like them all). Regardless of the math, my students (and their parents) tell me that I make math fun and easy to understand (even if some still profess to hate it). Give me a call, and let's set up a session, and see if we are a good fit.
Steven has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 10 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Our daughter needed to get a passing grade on a math test to graduate HS. It was the only thing she was missing. She took the test and got a 44 and had to take it again with only 5 days to prepare because graduation was 6 days away. Steven came to our house Friday and over the weekend that preceeded the test. He was so patient with her and really helped her to understand the material. She passed with a 92. We are so grateful to Steven! No Summer School! We are surely going to be scheduling an appt for College Math soon. Awesome Tutor!Madison, 16 lessons with Steven
My 17 year-old son has struggled with the Covid 100% online model, while taking his Algebra 2 course. Not only was Steven available immediately the next day, but he quickly built rapport and restored confidence in a single 90 minute sesson. He quickly identified that the main struggle was understanding the terms and exactly how to interpret what the questions were asking. He helped my son reason through the questions and then helped with solving the problems, so there was a clear understanding the how and why. He also moved at a very comfortable pace, making sure all of the concepts were making sense before moving on to the next problems. My son thought he was really cool and wants to keep meeting with him to boost his own prep for quizzes and exams. I personally thought he was fantastic, and I gave my son the green light to continue to reach out to him as much as he feels he needs the help. Well worth it!Jerry, 1 lesson with Steven
Excellent tutor. Very nice person.
My son and Steven reviewed Algebra 2/Trig for an upcoming test, tomorrow. My son benefited a great deal. They went over past tests and quizzes... corrections. He is very knowledgeable in math.Vicky, 1 lesson with Steven
Patient and very knowledgeable
Steven helped my son prepare for a calculus test. He is very patient and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond. By coming out to our house, with very short notice, and tutoring late into the evening.Jeremy , 1 lesson with Steven
Steven spent a lot of time catching up my daughter on concepts she missed in class. And even went the extra mile sending information after their session. Highly recommend!Karen, 1 lesson with Steven
Steven is excellent at what he does! He really enjoys and is enthusiastic about tutoring precalculus. He explains it in a concise and understandable manner. My son is much more confident and comfortable with the material since working with Steven. We highly recommend him.Claudia, 1 lesson with Steven
Very knowledgeable in math
Great teacher and very knowledgeable with math, Factoring and Expanding Polynomial Expressions. My son has had different math tutors, and he’s quite satisfied with Steven’s math knowledge and teaching skills.Deborah, 1 lesson with Steven
Algebra 2 ++
The whole family is enthusiastic with Steven as a tutor!! He is knowledgeable, so calm, so patient and able to establish instant rapport with our 17-year-old boy. We are so grateful and plan to use his services many times. We heartily recommend him!Susan, 7 lessons with Steven
Steven was able to help our son grasp concepts of Algebra 1 in one hour that he hasn’t been able to understand after months of tutoring. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to dissect the equations in a way that helped our son see it differently. Our son was encouraged about math for the first time all year. He even told me as Stephen left “his really good!!!” I would highly recommend him.Christina, 15 lessons with Steven
Great Pre-Calculus Tutor
Steven made himself available when we really needed his help and he has a fun sense of humor that immediately put my son at ease. We appreciated how thorough Steven was; in fact, we referred him to our friends and they are grateful. Steven is a great tutor!Stephanie, 3 lessons with Steven
