About Steven

Thank you for considering me as a tutor. I am in my senior year of studies as an English Education major.

I like to teach grammar, spelling, and vocabulary through writing and literature. I have my students keep a journal. I talk to the student to learn her or his interests, then assign writing prompts and help the student select books to read. I also have the student respond to literature through public speaking activities, journal entries in the voice of characters, and graphic organizers that help students understand plot, setting, characterization, and other literary elements. I also use a variety of current, age-appropriate nonfiction.

When the students responds to literature through writing, I can pick out recurring errors and create lessons to teach and reinforce those concepts. I want my students to be prepared for 21st century communication, and to face the challenges of fishing school and going on to college or the workplace. With that in mind, I keep my content relevant and am always extending my own education. I understand the need to adapt my lessons for individual students with divergent needs.

Since September of 2011, I have worked as a tutor at a private company. I have taught students there ranging from elementary to high school. I have also completed the first part of my student teaching at KSU. I taught groups of middle school students at a public school in Acworth. Please contact me if you have any more questions. I look forward to working with you and serving your needs.
