About Steven

I began my experience in the educational world as a camp counselor at Asphalt Green in New York City. Asphalt's Summer Day Camp allowed me to serve as a counselor for children ages 4 and 5. For three consecutive summers, I gained a thorough understanding of how to manage the expectations of my campers and their parents, ensuring that they enjoyed a safe and memorable camp experience. Through my work at Asphalt, I developed the patience and understanding necessary for success in any academic role. My experience led me to pursue a tutoring opportunity at HPAC, a Bronx nonprofit which served underprivileged high school students of New York.

In this role, I tutored and mentored high school students as they prepared for the SAT examination, specifically in the Critical Reading and Writing sections. I take a multifaceted approach when tutoring--spending as less time lecturing as possible and emphasizing the practical aspects of learning. I also like to emphasize alternative ways of solving problems. I also believe my combination of undergraduate, graduate and professional experience has made me a unique candidate for the tutoring space. I come from a heavily oriented research background, and I relish the opportunity to learn alongside my students.
