About Stephen


Bio

My experience with teaching covers a wide range, with classroom experience from kindergarten to undergraduates in college, and tutoring from middle school to graduate school. My students have consistently reported a positive experience after being taught by me, and I have stayed in touch with several after they have moved on. They sometimes report their successes in future courses or the workforce, or simply tell me that they appreciate what I did for them. This reward is probably the best...

My experience with teaching covers a wide range, with classroom experience from kindergarten to undergraduates in college, and tutoring from middle school to graduate school. My students have consistently reported a positive experience after being taught by me, and I have stayed in touch with several after they have moved on. They sometimes report their successes in future courses or the workforce, or simply tell me that they appreciate what I did for them. This reward is probably the best part of the experience as an educator.

With my experience in both teaching and tutoring, I am hoping to use this forum to reach out to those who otherwise might not know about my availability for tutoring. I plan to assist as many students as I can in their future successes, and hope that I am able to reach many who could use my specialties. I find that math is in high demand, but the biggest need in a technology-based world is a competent teacher for computer science subjects. Such tutors are not as common, so I hope to help with that scarcity.

I have five years of experience teaching math in a classroom, from middle school level up to seniors in high school. I have also tutored students in college level math courses, including calculus, differential equations, and mathematical logic. I have a track record of success, and the students that I have tutored have shown marked improvements in their comprehension and test scores.

I have a Master's degree in computer science and have four years of experience teaching computers at the middle and high school level. I have also taught a college course in computer skills, and while in graduate school I was the TA for several courses, including introductory programming and artificial intelligence. I did research specializing in artificial intelligence while in graduate school, as well. Several of the people that I have tutored have gone on to successful careers in computer science, including a couple who now work for Google.

I can tutor a wide variety of subjects in math and computer science. If you're looking for a friendly, patient person to guide you through difficult subjects, then feel free to contact me. I have flexible hours and can work around most schedules. I hope to hear from you soon.

Computer Science

I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science, and can provide a transcript to WyzAnt if requested to confirm this. My specialty is artificial intelligence, but I tutored in every area of computer science while in college, including programming, theory of computation, and algorithms. I can help computer science students in any area where they are having difficulties.

Very understanding

He was understanding and explained the concepts really well. He took the concepts I did not grasp and guided me through them. Great job!

Chris , 1 lesson with Stephen

Excellent, knows his stuff!

Stephen has been a huge help for me in my second semester of my college career. I am a computer science major and have been struggling in my Java class. He has taught me so much and he really wants you to learn. He is very patient with you and does his absolute best to help you understand what you are doing. He is very friendly and has a very welcoming personality. He always arrives on time and is very respectful. I would highly recommend Stephen to anyone who is struggling in computer science.

Ryan, 3 lessons with Stephen

Very knowledgeable and prepared

Worked on Microsoft Excel, showed many examples, explained key functions and gave examples, and worked on excel exercises. Felt that I gained a lot of knowledge in the session. Will definitely return for more sessions.

Great Tutor - Very patient ...

Stephen tutors my son in math and has raised his confidence level in just two lessons. Works very well with him at a 4th grade level. His recent test levels showed improvement.

Paula, 18 lessons with Stephen

Great first impression

Stephen showed up on time and was professionally dressed and ready for his first session with our daughter. He was flexible and worked with her at her level during the hour.
