About Steve

My name is Steve S. I was a Spanish and English grammar teacher for 32 years primarily at Manteca High School in Manteca, CA. 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 one year. I have also tutored Spanish to elementary and high school students and adults for about 16 years and have been teaching Spanish for 5 years part-time for a charter school in Modesto, in Manteca, and in Stockton since 2012.

My method of relating to everyone is that everyone deserves to be heard and to be respected. Your questions deserve to be answered fully. Whatever your particular focus for the days that we meet, it is with the understanding that I am there to help you understand the material thoroughly. If you have quizzes, tests, and/or projects, I am there to help you with these kinds of assignments as well.

I am available for any questions you may have when we do not meet in person as well. If you have assignments you wish me to review and/or have questions about your upcoming quizzes, tests, and projects, you can email me through the Wyzant email account. Another option for your consideration is to call or text me, that you wish me to answer your questions or to review your written or typed work. If you have an immediate need to contact me, you can call or text me. If I am available, I will answer you immediately. If I am unable to reply when you contact me, I will reply as quickly as I can, usually within an hour.

Your objectives are to understand Spanish and English grammar better, to be able to use Spanish and English grammar appropriately, and to earn higher grades, if you are in school. I am here to help you achieve your objectives.

So, how may I help you?

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.
