About Steve

My name is Steve S. I was a full-time Spanish teacher for 32 years primarily at Manteca High School in Manteca, CA. I also taught English grammar at that high school. I taught Spanish on a part-time basis for 16 years at Delta College in Stockton, CA. I taught Medical Spanish for the University of the Pacific and for CSU Stanislaus in Stockton, CA, for 1 year. I have also tutored Spanish to high school students and adults for about 10 years and have been teaching Spanish for 2 years part-time for Connecting Waters Charter School in Modesto, in Manteca, and in Stockton since 2013.

Everybody wishes to be heard and to be respected. My method of relating to students is for students to be heard and to be respected. Their questions deserve to be answered fully. Whatever their particular focus for the days that we meet, it is with the understanding that I am there to help them understand the material. If they have quizzes, tests, and/or projects, I am there to help them with these kinds of assignments as well.

Above and beyond our tutoring sessions, I am available for any questions they may have. Also, if they have assignments they wish me to review and if our tutoring sessions are over, they can email their assignments to me through the WyzAnt email account. Under these circumstances, it is important for them to call or text me so that I know they wish me to review what they have written and by when. If they have immediate need to contact me, they can text or call me.

Their objectives are to understand Spanish better and to earn higher grades. I am here to help them achieve their objectives.

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.

Spanish

I have taught all levels of Spanish on the high school level primarily at Manteca High School for 32 years on a full-time basis before retiring in 2002. I have taught beginning and intermediate Spanish for Delta College for 16 years on a part-time basis before retiring from there in 1992. I have taught Medical Spanish for UOP and for CSU Stanislaus for several semesters on a part-time basis before retiring from those institutions in 2008.
