My name is Steve and I have been in Education as a teacher and school counselor for over 15 years. I began teaching in 1998 and have been in the Education field as a teacher, counselor or advisor ever since. I have experience teaching and counseling at the elementary, middle and high school levels and have taught an array of subjects including but not limited to Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Sciences and Science. I have learned over my years in Education that students learn in different ways and it is up to the teacher to discover which learning modality, or style, best fits the needs of the student. Does the student benefit from having information presented to them in a visual or auditory mode? Does the student benefit from receiving information in a tactile or kinesthetic mode? These are just a few of the important questions Educator's must ask themselves so the information being presented matches up with the students learning style. I have had students in the past tell me that they did not understand a particular concept that we have been working on in class. Instead of presenting the information in the same way the student did not understand over and over, it is my responsibility to find another avenue of delivery that makes sense to the student so comprehension is achieved.
I began tutoring students soon after I began teaching and realized how much I enjoy working one on one with students. It truly allows me to focus all of my efforts and attention to the particular student. The student has my complete attention as I am not trying to manage a classroom of students. I am extremely talented at building rapport with students I work with which builds trust between the teacher and student. This leads to the student feeling safe and comfortable which produces a conducive learning environment.

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.
