About Steve

I love teaching students one-on-one, and I enjoy seeing their confidence and self-esteem rise as they improve academically. I am an experienced teacher, with fifteen years in the classroom as a middle school Language Arts teacher. I have a Master's degree in Secondary English education, and I have an ESOL endorsement. Since I left the classroom, I have been tutoring with students in all grade levels and all ability levels. I especially enjoy working with students in grades 3 - 10. I have a great deal of experience and proficiency in teaching English, math, writing, ACT and SAT Prep, as well as science and social studies. I also have an understanding of Spanish at a conversational level. I can teach your child specific strategies that will make him or her academically successful and more confident.

I am a very patient, organized, and methodical teacher. I will work hard to help your child improve his or her academic ability as well as enhancing your child's confidence and self-esteem. I offer a free consultation meeting to discuss your child's individual needs. I will make every effort to meet your scheduling needs, but I ask for 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a session. Because I tutor full time, I can work with your child in the afternoons, evenings, or weekends. I am also available to work with children who are home-schooled.

Your child's success is very important to me, and I look forward to hearing from 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have passed the certification exam for elementary education (K - 6). I have also tutored elementary students, primarily in math and English, for over nine years.

Study Skills

I have taught middle school English for fifteen years, and teaching my students effective study skills was an important part of my class. In addition, I have tutored students for over ten years, and I have incorporated study skills into many of my lessons.
