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.

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
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, 5 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
Increased Test Score
My son was struggling with geometry and getting low test/quiz scores. My son met with Mr. B once and his next test score improved significantly. We will definitely continue to use Mr. B -- Thank you!!Nancy, 1 lesson with Steven
Just What We Were Looking For!
My son said Steven was a great tutor and quickly understood what he needed. "We got straight to business, Mom", my son said. "I learned a lot fast." We look forward to working with Steven going forward.Gabe, 4 lessons with Steven
Steven has helped my son improve his math grade in one session ! My son has learned so much from the tutoring since Steven has such a wide range of knowledge. Steven also allows his students to text or call him if needed in between tutoring sessions if needed. Highly recommend Steven .👍Alissa, 25 lessons with Steven
Tutored my son in Pre-Calculus prior to a final. Accommodating and flexible when scheduling. Very helpful! Would recommend to others.Barbara, 24 lessons with Steven
