Bio

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.

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.

Experienced and patient

Steve V. was a great tutor for my girls. It was crunch time last min prep for a test and he was very flexible patient and understanding to their needs. They both said they were happy they tutored with Steve before taking the test. I would recommend him to everyone I know, thanks Steve V.

Very patient

My nephew said Steve is very patient. Thank you, Steve, for your time and thank you for give it a try.

Jeth, 1 lesson with Steve

Great tutor

Steve helped my 12 year old son with math and science homework. He was very professional, arrived early, and was good at helping him and explaining how to do the work. We are going to continue having him come out weekly for homework and tutoring help.

Crissy, 3 lessons with Steve

Fantastic Tutor!

Within an hour of needing a tutor specific to my son's math needs, Steve quickly returned the request. Yay! He had every need we requested out of a tutor. We had difficulties connecting with the 'online tutor' session for the first time. Steve was extremely patient with our learning curve while we fumbled through it. My son finally connected. He loved it. Steve's expertise in the subject & being a teacher came through the lesson. It was special to hear my son was happy to finally 'get it'! Looking forward to more lessons from Steve. Thank you so much!

Great tutor

Is doing a great job with my son with his algebra. My son is feeling more comfortable with his material and his grades are starting to reflect this. Thank you Steve!

Mark, 46 lessons with Steve

Knowledgeable and relevant

Steve quickly assessed areas I needed improvements in and helps strengthen those areas with his vast expertise. I believe his support will increase my test scores this weekend.

Professional, Patient, Prepared and Knowledgeable

My daughter had her first session with Steve and, honestly, I had to drag her there. Afterwards I asked how the session went and I was pleasantly surprised to hear she was very impressed with his intelligence, how comfortable he made her feel and how clearly he was able to explain concepts to her. She is motivated for her additional tutoring sessions and that's to Steve's credit We are planning to use him twice a week to help prep for ACT/SAT and hoping to see some improvement in her scores.

Instilling Confidence

NaJee leaves his reading lessons smiling and excited for the benefits his future lessons will bring. He was so proud of himself last night that he called our family to tell his grandparents about the reading he'd accomplished! As his mother, his happiness and confidence in himself means the world to me. Seeing how proud he was week filled me with with so much joy and hope for his success in school. Thanks Steve! We look forward to working with you throughout this school year.

Mattie, 48 lessons with Steve

Very Patient

My daughter wouldn't speak when he first arrived but Steve did great with bringing her out of her shell. He worked with math and reading comprehension. I will definitely be using him again.
