Brilliant, Patient, Kind, and Cultivated Why & What I was doing These Complexed Problems for to use them in regular life.

Steven taught me the logic around Logirithems, Exponential equations, and how they even apply to Covid's exponential spreading. I was enriched in one hour of speaking with Steven about why I was in this pre-test review and how these many math problems applied to each other, vs my teacher was not teaching, just sending us to Videos on line. Steven helped me finish a qualitative, quantitive math class with more understanding in our first half hour than I had all semester. Steven gave me the wisdom confirmation of each concept behind the problems, this helps embed them into my executive functions, which I have had to retrain after an accident. WOW! This is what I have to say about what an amazing "INSPIRATION" Steven is!!! When I was done speaking with Steven I felt Proud to Graduate this year, know my math and why I needed to learn this in the last moments of the class. I feel more than worthy to graduate and blessed to have Steven's encouragement as well as teachings to hear over again in my mind as I look at another problem with greater depth and solve it because now I know why and how to do it on my own. Thank you Steven W.!! I wish Steven was teaching worldwide!! We need you in Montana and If I may say the WORLD needs Steven!! We need more math LOVERRRRSSSS this is fun when you know why!!:)) Thank you, again and have a safe & blessed Happy Thanksgiving! Christin

Engaging

Steve kept the attention of both my students. He isn't boring so that goes along way with some of this material. His teaching was to the point, engaging, and informational. The kids like him and look forward to his tutoring.

Christine, 1 lesson with Steven

Excellent tutor!

Steven made himself available to “save the day” just when our son was really struggling and falling behind in his summer statistics and probability class. He is knowledgeable and reassuring. A real professional and great communicator.

Leslie, 2 lessons with Steven

Accomplished Tutor

Steven was able to help my 12-year-old daughter understand her math problems. He was patient and effective when helping her do her math. After the lesson she told me he was very helpful. I recommend him.

Scott, 5 lessons with Steven

In Depth Knowledge of Statistics

My son is working on a project that is outside the bounds of his introduction to statistics class. He got stuck with some of the more advanced statistical analysis and was unable to move forward. We reached out to Steven and asked if he could assist. Steven has gone above and beyond getting my son on track and helping him move forward with not only his project but with deeper and more resonating understanding of statistics.

GMAT

He is organized and prepared , best tutor ever I’m glad that I worked with him to be ready for my test we are covering the verbal part and the quantitative And he is knowledgeable in both,He is the best ever .

Hanouf, 14 lessons with Steven

Knowledgeable about the subject and applications

Steven did a great job helping me understand the math concepts, and he also taught me new programs to help me complete my homework in a much more efficient way. I suspect my future homework assignments will take me half the time to complete. Thanks, Steven!

Encouraging Tutor

Steven is affirming and encouraging throughout the lesson. My son is having a good time finding out how much he enjoys math again, after a couple of years of teachers not investing the time.
