My name is Steven, and since graduating from college I have enjoyed working in various student programs both in local schools and in my own church student department.

Because I was raised in a bilingual household, I am able to teach and explain the Spanish language in a natural, easy-to-understand manner.

In high school and college, I excelled in both math and science classes. During my college career, I completed several advanced mathematics classes up to Calculus 3.

As a successful high school and college athlete, I acquired coaching and physical education training skills which I have used from a fairly young age to help young people develop their abilities in their areas of athletics.

I truly enjoy helping young people to learn and achieve in their chosen fields of study or interest. I believe that my work with students in the past thirteen years has given me the ability to relate well and communicate effectively with children and teenagers. I look forward to meeting your student and realizing the possibilities of what we may accomplish together!

I will be offering private basketball lessons during the summer months. Please contact me early so that I can arrange gym times for our lessons.

Basketball

I've played basketball for 20 years. Since third grade in my elementary years I was fortunate to play on special club teams and all-star games. In high school I had some really good coaches who taught me the fundamentals of the motion offense. In particular, Coach Howard (who was the assistant coach of Arizona State when Byron Scott played for them) taught me a great deal. As a senior, I made the all conference team in the central valley league in California. In college, I played for a private college and I was second in the nation in the assist category. Through the years, I have been able to coach young kids from ages 10 and up. I have also officiated many games up to the high school level. I believe I can teach players to improve their skills and understand the concepts of basketball to be able to play an important role on any team of which they are members.

Great first meeting

Great first session! Steven was very informative and answered all of my questions. He is very patient and seems to have a knack for zeroing in on the areas where my daughter needs work! I am looking forward to working with you to build her confidence and skills in math!

Very patient

Steven has really helped my son in algebra. He has a way of teaching the concepts that make it easy to understand.

Stefi, 22 lessons with Steven

Exceeding Expectations!

Steven has exceeded my expectations for a personal math tutor for my teenage son. Steven is professional, personable and very patient; above all, he is proficient in math, and in teaching math. In just two lessons he was able to discern my son's weaknesses and his learning style. From there Steven has been able to adapt his teaching to accommodate these factors. Steven easily captures and engages my son's attention and makes him feel confident about his work, which gives my son a great sense of accomplishment. Thank You Steven!! Update 5/18/14: Thanks to Steven we have a confident teenage son who looks forward to math class and math tutoring. His grade has skyrocketed and he now enjoys downloading math apps and winning. His SAT score also improved! He also feels completely ready to take on his ACT this summer. THANK YOU!!

First meeting, excellent first impression!

Steven tutored my 6th grade son for the first time yesterday evening. My son hasn't responded well to family members trying to work with him and in fact would usually get quite frustrated and upset. He seemed so relaxed and confident after meeting with Steven for just an hour. He said he was so nice and my son said, "I didn't feel totally dumb when I didn't know how to do something". He said Steven just nicely and calmly showed him how to do it! Refreshing to see my son not being a basket case after working on math problems! I'll post more when I see his overall improvement after some more sessions. Update: I now have my 15 year old daughter seeing Steven as well. After her first meeting with him a few months back, she aced her test. She loves his tutoring style! Both of my kids have benefited greatly from their tutoring sessions and are doing great!

Steven Makes a Great First Impression

We've only had one session so far, but we are getting on a regular schedule. I am not sure exactly how but in one hour my son's confidence level in his math skills skyrocketed. Steven was able to take a few concepts that he was struggling with and make them so easy to understand the my son was laughing at how easy it was. I am not a big review guy - but Steven is already worth every penny - I am buying a package today! Update: It's been a few months now and my son's confidence in his math skills continues to grow. I just received a text from school after his last math test, "We just finished the test and Steven is a psychic. She just showed me my score and I got 100% and I got a recommendation from the school to take AP classes next year because of my PSAT scores". I am not saying Steven did it all but he deserves a ton of credit. Thank you Steven. Update (2/7/2014): My son continues to flourish in math and I believe that it has everything to do with his work with Steven. He has not only learned to apply the tools and concepts he has learned from Steven, but he is now asked by his teachers on a regular basis to teach and explain the concepts to his classmates. I am not sure how we go so lucky our first time out - Steven has been a game changer for us. Thank you.

My child feels confident in his math skills now!

Steven is patient and really paid attention to how my child learned best. Will is much more confident in his own abilities.

Shannen, 15 lessons with Steven

Excellent teacher!

Steven is the best!!! We are so grateful for his time with both students. He is a tremendous help with their math lessons.

Todd, 41 lessons with Steven

Great tutor!!

My son has only worked with Steven twice and you can immediately see his confidence level grow. Steven stated after the first session that my son had all the math concepts, and showed him the small mistakes that were being made. My son's grade in math has improved with each homework, quiz and test since. Thank you Steven for your encouragement. It really means a lot to us.

I call Steven M. "The Math Whisperer"

My son was anxious throughout the afternoon because he knew there were things he simply didn't get. By the end of his hour with Steven, a cloud had lifted from my son's head and he felt like he "got it"! Steven is encouraging and speaks in the language in which the student learns best.
