About Stephanie

Hi!

I have been tutoring for over 5 years, and I love seeing students light up when they understand something new! I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with a Master's degree in Creative Writing. I also worked at Saint Mary's as a teaching assistant for both Composition 3 and Creative Writing classes for undergraduate students (freshman, sophomores and juniors). I not only taught lessons in class, but met with students individually to work on their assignments in addition to grading. I have also worked at Acalanes High School in Lafayette, CA for 3 years as a history essay tutor for students grades 9th through 12th. There I helped students learn the fundamentals of how to write a satisfactory essay, and help them prepare for the rigorous demands of a college-level essay assignment.

I also have over three years experience as the Head Reading Tutor, teaching children phonics in pre-school level, as well as elementary aged students (kindergarten-4th grade) and middle school aged children (grades 5th-8th) reading and writing at two Kumon Learning Centers. In addition to my time with both Kumon and Acalanes, I have been a private tutor for high school and elementary students helping with all subjects from elementary Spanish, science, social studies, and English to study skills.

Before ever having moved to California, I worked as an instructor with Genesius Theatre and Cherry Herring Entertainment Company, teaching students in acting and other theatre arts. Students involved in the program were between the ages of 7 and 14. This was an incredible experience for both my students and me. Not only did we get to have fun and be creative, but they got to learn something new during the summer months and perform a show that they put together (wrote and performed) for a real, live audience.

Thomas Edison said, "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." This is how I feel about learning. I would love to make your experience go smoothly and have as much fun as possible! Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding lessons and let's get started today. I'm here to help!

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.

Cooking

I am a server part-time and make a living preparing, cooking and assembling food at a high profile restaurant in the Bay Area. I enjoy cooking so much and have to follow recipes on a daily basis. I am very detail oriented and know many if not all measurement conversions and utilize this knowledge to help others cook.

Film

I have a Bachelors Degree in Film Studies and Production from Hofstra University. I spent over 6 years working in film production. I also wrote and edited film reviews for Academy of Art University. I have a tremendous grasp of the classic studies of film, film history, as well as working in production and on the editorial side of the film business.

Reading

I have experience teaching writing, reading and phonics for elementary school students.
