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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Steve is teaching my 7 yr old daughter Math and English… she was comfortable with him in the first class itself…his way of teaching is really fun and engaging…she always looks forward to his class. Way of teaching - story reading and always ask her what she learns from the story …he makes drawings with her also in Math she is learning different combinations of additions /subtraction/times . I would highly recommend him to everyone who is looking out for tutors for their kids . Thanks!

Passionate tutor

Remarkable

Steve is great tutor. I have seen such a huge difference in my sons eager to learn and accomplishments. I regret not finding Steve years ago. I’ve had tutors in the past for my son and they have been good. But not comparable to Steve. Steve has created such a great relationship with my son he’s more then just a tutor to him. He’s his new friend/mentor. Not to mention that my son is a very active kid and involved in a lot of sports. And Steve has been able to make arrangements so we wouldn’t miss a lesson. He is dedicated to my son as my son is dedicated to him. He’s just wonderful. Thanks for all that you do Steve.

Excellent math tutor

My 11 year old son was struggling with math for some time. We tried Mathnesium and some one on one tutoring but there were no tangible results until we "met" Steve. We started working with Steve in February 2022 and by the end of April 2022 my son's math grade changed from D to A! Incredible results! I highly recommend Steve; his methods are very effective and show results.

Persistent and absolutely amazing!

My daughter's grade was a D in 8th grade English and now its a B! His tutoring has definitely been worth the money and he is also flexible with scheduling and that is a big help for our busy household. Steve has great patience, is specific in his writing suggestions, and he knows how to keep middle schoolers engaged which is so important nowadays!

Patient and fun.

He works great with my 5th grade son. Teachers at school say the extra help has made a big difference. He doesn't look forward to tutoring but thanks to Steve he doesn't hate it either.
