ITT Technical Institute, Rancho Cordova, CA (Multimedia)
I've been tutoring professionally now for over six years, originally in a tutoring center helping three students at once, but for years now as a private tutor. I've fallen in love with the atmosphere and practicality of tutoring one-on-one in my client's home, and have experienced many great tutoring relationships along the way.
I'm a hard worker, and love to push my limits (for instance, on a tricky, high-difficulty AP Physics word problem), but I never get bored of helping students see the mathematics from a fresh angle, and am especially pleased when someone asks a tough question or tries to think around the standard methods. If you want to question everything, take the time you need to struggle through a topic without feeling rushed or belittled, or just want a deep introduction to even the simplest concepts, we might be an especially great fit.
I've always had a very personal love of math and the sciences, but my degree from ITT Tech is in Multimedia, and creative expression is also a big part of who I am. I've tutored almost every subject offered in most high schools over the course of my life, but I feel that I am best qualified to teach, encourage, and motivate in the areas I love most. I program games for fun and write music in my free time, love philosophy and theology (and love God!), and pretty much enjoy working with any subject that I can see from a logical angle.
I find the flexibility of tutoring advantageous to my preferred lifestyle (I'm not someone who loves to rush through things if I can help it), but I take my commitments very seriously, and always give appropriate notice if I need to change my schedule. On the flip side, not having a packed calender means that I can often accommodate changes in scheduling that my clients request (this usually becomes less so around the busiest times of the academic year).
Please don't hesitate to contact me and put me to the test, and please always be honest with me about how you feel and what you most want from tutoring - honesty is at my core.

Stephen was able to meet us and tutor my son within 24 hours. He connected with my son and they made great progress in today's tutoring session. We have a short window to catch my son up in his pre-calculus class and I am confident Stephen will see it through and get Mason where he needs to be!
Mr. Stephen arrived at our house and immediately went to work with our son on getting him through a long math assessment packet. He worked alongside our son through each problem and helped him along by suggesting various methods he could use to get the correct answer by choosing more efficient methods than the ones my son was used to. We initially were going to use him for just a few occasions when needed, but we've decided that he would be an asset to have on a weekly, or semi-weekly, basis to keep our son at the top of his game in his math classes. Mr. Stephen is high energy, exceptionally articulate, and makes learning math fun.
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.
