About Stephen

Hello! I would like to become your tutor. Here is why I think I would be an excellent choice!
My high school education was at a college prep school in New Hampshire. I also attended the University of Southern Maine. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1995 with a B.A. in History. If you need help in any area of History (U.S., European, Russian, Ancient, etc.)then I am the right tutor for you! Beside History, I can also help you to better understand English(grammar,& literature), Geography, Earth Science, and Spanish 1. If you need to develop better reading, writing, or study skills, I can help you there too! Going for that GED? No problem! My experience includes working as a substitute teacher since 2009 in both Maine and Florida. This has given me practice in a wide variety of subjects. I have passed all background checks in both states. As a sub, I have worked with students of all grade levels and abilities. I now have experience with students from many different backgrounds including social, racial, ethnic, and religious. I welcome each new encounter as an expansion of my own education. Through these experiences, I have discovered that I am very effective in answering questions and helping students to better understand the problem solving required by their lessons. I am looking forward to working with you and your family to help develop your full potential.
Prior to my teaching career, I was employed by the same company in Maine for nearly 28 years. I worked there as a machinist, quality tech, and final inspector. My personal interests include playing guitar, harmonica, and writing songs. I also enjoy following the Red Sox and Patriots, and driving my 1992 Mustang convertible. When time allows, I exercise by riding my bicycle. My wife and I spend our time between Leesburg, FL and Naples, ME. Please feel free to contact me. Let's talk!

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.

American History

I graduated from the University of Southern Maine, Summa Cum Laude, with a B.A. in History.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am presently employed as a substitute teacher in the Lake County School Department. I have experience with students of all grade levels. I have a strong knowledge of vocabulary that was reinforced beginning at an early age by my parents. Always remember, when in doubt, a dictionary is your best friend.

ESL/ESOL

I have an excellent command of the English language. This is not only through good education, but also from my parents, who were well educated. If my siblings or I misspoke, we were always corrected! I am ready to work closely with you to help you master your English!

GED

To earn your GED, you will need to become knowledgeable in a number of areas. I will work closely with you, and together, we will succeed!

Reading

Reading is extremely important as it is the foundation for much of our education. I can help you to become a faster reader, to better understand what you read, and to find reading books to be an enjoyable experience. If you're ready to start, I am too!

Social Studies

I have a B.A. degree from the U. of So. Maine in History. I also work as a Substitute Teacher in the Lake County School Dept. My classes often include Social Studies, usually at a middle school level. I have helped many students during these classes and have found that I am very successful in helping them to understand the subject matter.
