Bio

Greetings! I am a skilled tutor with demonstrable successes as a teacher and school administrator. I have current teaching and administrative credentials. I graduated twice from UC Berkeley, first with a BA in English and then with an MA in Educational Leadership with the Principal Leadership Institute. This graduate program was a governor’s initiative for which I received an academic scholarship. I also earned my teaching credential with Tulane University in New Orleans, valid there and in...

Greetings! I am a skilled tutor with demonstrable successes as a teacher and school administrator. I have current teaching and administrative credentials. I graduated twice from UC Berkeley, first with a BA in English and then with an MA in Educational Leadership with the Principal Leadership Institute. This graduate program was a governor’s initiative for which I received an academic scholarship. I also earned my teaching credential with Tulane University in New Orleans, valid there and in California.

I enjoy tutoring and teaching English immensely; I want to keep doing so lifelong. I retired early as I am writing, so tutoring with Wyzant keeps me doing what I enjoy. I successfully taught English, study skills, reading, writing, and Academic Decathlon with students grades 8-12 for 9 years in New Orleans with Brother Martin High School and in San Francisco with Balboa High School. I offered tutoring in both schools before and after school as well as at lunch. I did so because I saw that when students knew teachers were consistently there for them, students valued learning all the more and were much more successful with learning.

As a teacher leader, I directed our after-school tutoring program with English and math for 4 years with Balboa. I successfully served colleagues and students as Balboa’s English/ESL department chair for 3 years. I successfully served students, parents, colleagues, and school communities as a vice principal and principal with Bay Area middle and high schools for 13 years.

As may have become obvious by now, I thoroughly enjoy our craft! I know a successful teacher ensures that students learn the material, not simply that the teacher has taught it. For this reason I teach and tutor reading and writing through a modified inquiry method of writing. This means that our students discover an authentic interest in the subject matter. From there we develop our opinions or (hypo)theses, arguments that we support with appropriate details in a specific structure. Our main and subordinate clauses in the complex sentences we author serve as our plans, our touchstones, our thesis statement. Once we know how and what we are writing, we author drafts. Although we know that nothing needs to be immediately perfect, we gain confidence that we can grow and continue to perfect our work. We learn that writing teaches us how to read and how to think critically. We learn to analyze how well our drafts improve. We look at both content and mechanics. We edit and then proofread.

I tailor tutoring to each student’s individual needs. I have thorough skills with this strategy, also known as differentiating. I have taught all ranges of students: high-, middle-, and promising achievers, as well as gifted students and students with IEPs and 504s, who are often one and the same. One size simply cannot fit all. This means that I am happy to offer a free initial consultation meeting.

A few housekeeping details: I ask as a courtesy to let me know of any cancellations at least 24 hours in advance. I understand life happens. We all can get sick, and sometimes family events with no notice come up. I am flexible. I also ask we ensure our student works with me directly to learn more and schedule lessons. This is a great skill to learn, as it empowers students by building confidence through advocating for oneself.

I look forward to working with you.

Best Regards,

Stephen

Bible Studies

I have taught the Bible as Literature at the high school level for eight years. I have taught the books of Genesis, Exodus, Song of Songs, Gospel of St. Matthew, and the Revelation of St. John.
