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 1 year. I have also tutored Spanish to high school students and adults for about 10 years and have been teaching Spanish for 3 years part-time for Connecting Waters Charter School in Modesto, in Manteca, and in Stockton since 2013.
My method of relating to people is for people 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 an immediate need to contact me, they can call or text me. If I am available, I will answer them immediately. If I am unable to reply when they contact me, I will reply as quickly as I can, usually within an hour.
Their objectives are to understand Spanish better, to be able to use Spanish appropriately, and to earn higher grades. I am here to help them achieve their objectives. 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
Steve assessed our son's knowledge/retention from Spanish 1 and made recommendations for future sessions. We're confident and excited to have Steve's support as a tutor!
I learned more with Steve in 1 hour than I've learned all semester so far from my teacher. He's great.
My daughters are 8 and 9 and had their first Spanish lesson today. Steve worked well with them. His lesson was appropriate for their ages.
Mister Steve is very pleasant and an authority on the subject matter HS Spanish 2. I learned a lot because we covered a lot of material in the textbook. I'm looking forward to having more lessons with him.
Steve is an excellent tutor! We are so fortunate to have Steve to help my son with his Spanish. Steve is consistently very helpful, thoughtful and very professional in all the tutoring sessions. He has definitely earned our highest recommendation!
Our daughter was struggling with Spanish 2, but with Steve's help, she is seeing improvement in her grades and has a more positive attitude about the subject. Thank you, Steve!
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.
