About Stephen

Having a Genius level IQ, I excelled in math and science. I also have a near photographic memory.I scored 99th percentile in science and 96th percentile in math on the Florida 12th grade placement test. I received straight A's in math and science in high school and college. I have a lot of tutoring experience mainly in math and science. In high school I tutored almost all of the top 25 students in my grade. In college I worked as a tutor to help pay my expenses. I have also helped my sister and niece achieve their BA degrees.

I have received an AS degree in Radio-logical Health which involved courses in math, biology, chemistry, and physics.

I read extensively so I have a wide range of knowledge in science. I have taken math courses up to calculus. When taking any course I always tried to understand the material not just memorize it. I am very good at problem solving. I still enjoy learning as much as I did in high school. I have always loved science. In most of the science classes that I took in college I was at the top of the class. Since I have a very wide knowledge of the field I can usually find a way to explain the material so that the student can understand it. I enjoy tutoring someone who wants to learn. Currently I have lost the ability to work at the job I have had for 30 years so I am living on a disability check. I am disabled with damaged knees which makes it painful for me to walk very far. I am looking forward to tutoring as a way to keep my mind active.

As I am new to this tutoring job I will start with low rates. I will also give two hours initial consultation free of charge to any interested party. As I am on disability, my hours are completely flexible. My background can be checked as I was working at nuclear power plants, so was investigated by the FBI constantly while I was working.

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.

ACT Math

I am very well versed in math.
I scored on the 96th percentile in math for Florida on the 12th grade placement test in high school. I have tutored my sister, brother, niece and one of my work supervisors in math over the past few years.

Algebra 1

I am very well versed in algebra. I have taken both algebra I and II, geometry, and precalculus in high school. Calculus I, II, III, differential equations, statistics and physics with calculus in college.
I tutored both my niece and my sister on the math requirements for their BS degrees.

Algebra 2

I am very good with algebra, I have taken math to calculus III, Statistics, & Differential Equations. This was mainly the subject that I helped my sister with.


I scored above 90th percentile on every subject tested on the ASVAB. I have an excellent knowledge of most math and science subjects and the technical aspects of English and grammar. I can help you with all of the individual tests of the ASVAB.


Chemistry was one of the classes I was very good at. I was normally the top student in the class.
I tutored chemistry all through high school and college. In college I took three semesters of chemistry, two inorganic and one organic.


I have owned a personal computer since 1976, I started on a TI-99/4 then a commodore 64. Since then, I have owned a computer utilizing every single type of CPU from the DOS machines with 640K of RAM and DOS 1 up thru the current Pentium I7 chip.

I am well versed in all the subjects needed to tutor you for the GED. I scored in the 90th percentile for 12th grade students when in high school. I have also tutored students in math and science for most of my life at work.

General Computer

While I am not familiar with the programs that you will be using, I am very capable when it comes to learning how to operate any program. I believe that I could look over the program and then help you to become fluent in the operation of that program. If I am unable to do this then you owe me nothing for my time.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel and other spreadsheet programs for 20 years. I can show you how to enter data into spreadsheets, create formulas or create entire forms. I can also show you various ways to modify your standard format spreadsheet to add different visual styles.

Networking (Computer)

I have built my own computers for the last 30 years. For the last 15 years, I have had multiple computers operating (3-5) in my house. I have networked these computers using windows ME, NT, XP, 2000, 2003, OS/2, Win 7, 8, & now 10. I have setup a small network using a file server with 5 clients using NT for a friends plumbing company. I maintained that network for 3 years until he sold the company.

Physical Science

I am well versed in both algebra and physical science. I recently tutored both my sister and my niece on the math and science portions of BS degree requirements. I have a logical mind which is very adept at solving problems, I can usually see way to the solution after reading the problem.


After receiving my AS degree and working for 10 years, I went back to school at University of Florida with the intent of getting a BS degree. One of the courses that I successfully passed was Physics with Calculus. I was also tutoring another student in my class at the same time. I was able to finish the class in the top 10% and receive an A, The student I was tutoring improved from a F to a C.


I am familiar with all aspects of math prior to calculus. I excelled in algebra, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus. I have also taken three years of calculus. Several years ago I helped one of my supervisors to understand and complete his pre-calculus class.


I learned this programming language to tutor my brother last year for his computer degree. He was able to pass the class after I tutored him. I started using python version 2.7 and helped him to write a program in version 3.4.


I have used intuit products for the last 15 years. I was the CFO for an LLC and used QuickBooks to track all income and expenses, and employee payroll. I also was the bookkeeper for another business I was investing in and used QuickBooks online version to track all income and expenses.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor — I enjoyed learning about algebra with Stephen. I am having difficulty passing the P.E.R.T. to advance through my college course and not be held back by prep and intermediate math classes , so I decided to hire a private tutor. Stephen was very knowledgeable and patient during our session. We worked through algebra problems together and I took notes. Thanks to Stephen I have a better understanding ...
