NOW ACCEPTING STUDENTS AGAIN. Starting May 3rd 2022.

Want to finally master and enjoy Math? I'll guarantee I can get you there! I have 500+ hours of experience teaching over 25 Math and C.S. courses and have seen quick, game-changing results. I graduated with my B.S. in Pure Mathematics and C.S. with Honors from the University of Iowa. My name is Steven, and I live, sleep, and breathe tutoring.

My passion is teaching, even though I'm not an education major (though I have taken a 6000-level Ed Psych class). I have memorized the curriculum for almost all of the lower-level courses. I have a different teaching style than most, based on research and experience. My bookshelf is filled with hundreds of books, much of these on education. My goal is not just to help you to pass, but rather for you to begin to perceive and conceptualize mathematics in a way that will aid you throughout all of your education. However, if my style of teaching does not fit your preference, I am happy to alter it in any way.

At Iowa, my Mathematics and Computer Science GPA is above a 4.0. I taught myself Calculus I-III, Precalculus, Geometry, and Algebra I, all in my first two years of high school. I've taken four graduate-level mathematics courses, including MATH:6400: Algebraic Topology, among others. I also double majored in Computer Science and am very skilled with Java, Python, and C. I have previously worked in the University of Iowa Mathematics Tutorial Lab, have previously worked with middle and high school students, and this will be my fourth year tutoring.

If you are having trouble with preliminary material or if you feel you've fallen behind, I am more than happy to teach you mathematics from the bottom up. This is generally much more efficient for my students than jumping into advanced material.

I have an itch to tutor Calculus II and R, and I will offer a lower rate for these.

very knowledgeable and kind

I was lost on what to do on my assignment that required linear search. I didn't know where to go about linear search. Steven helped me understand it. Thank you for your help!

Excellent Tutor

Steven is the man. Puts the time in beforehand in order to be prepared for lessons. Very knowledgeable on math including the 400-level course that I am currently in. If there is something he doesn't know, he is a very quick learner and can basically teach himself over night. Great experience so far in the lessons that I have had with him.

Michael, 3 lessons with Steven

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor for both Mathematics and Computer Science

Steven has tutored me in both Discrete Structures and Computer Science. He is very knowledgeable and explains really well. He can explain the material in multiple ways, which makes it easier and faster to understand. He also has a warm personality :)
