About Steve

I've been tutoring students ever since high school in mathematics and English. When I decided to go into the military to help pay for college, I surprised the recruiters by scoring a 97 out of 99 on the ASVAB. My processing at MEPS took a bit of time with all of the job opportunities available. In the service, I tutored other soldiers in classes that they would take through online and through-mail courses. My hope is that everyone not only does well in the subjects that I teach/tutor, but also that they become better and more confident test takers.
Beginning next year I will be pursuing my doctorate degree here in southern Florida at FIU. Along with tutoring, I hope to obtain a position as a teaching assistant during my schooling. This will lead into my career goals of being a professor. If learning how to become a better test taker interests you, give me a call.

I have worked with local recruiters for the US ARMY both active and reserve to help bring up ASVAB scores. My latest student went from a 45 to an 81. With hard work and dedication, a good score is achievable.

I'm free to meet wherever you need to and I also offer current students the ability to text me with problems when not in session. Public places are my favorite as long as students aren't distracted too much. If you need a book we can discuss that at the first meeting.

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.

Algebra 1

Having attained my MBA and pursuing a life of knowledge, it has been my privilege to share my love of math. I was lucky enough to have some really great teachers and supporters throughout my career. I wish to pass that along to anyone who wishes to learn. I approach my tutoring, through what I call "from basic" perspective. I start each problem like a new student and help them overcome obstacles and distractions.

ASVAB

Having been successful at scoring a 97, Im excited to help others do well on taking the ASVAB.

Geometry

Both the ASVAB and ACT tests examine your knowledge of geometry. I scored 97 overall on the ASVAB and 27 in the math section of the ACT. I have extended coursework in both algebra and geometry.

Prealgebra

I've taken many math subjects in school and I am now completing my Masters Degree. Math has been one of my favorite subjects especially algebra. I have done exceedingly well in algebra and I wish to give this gift back to students by making algebra both challenging and fun. I have scored high in High School, undergrad, and graduate math classes. I have tutored adults in the military and online for years. I have seen many of my students do well both in classes and on the ASVAB and ACT tests math sections.

Vocabulary

Having attained my MBA and pursuing a life of knowledge, it has been my priviledge to share my love of reading. I was lucky enough to have some really great teachers and supporters throughout my career. I wish to pass that along to anyone who wishes to learn. I approach my tutoring, through what I call "from basic" perspective. I truly believe that a love of learning and reading is how to begin learning vocabulary.
