About Steven

I have taught at the high school, adult, community college, and university levels, along with training in the business environment. During my high school teaching, I worked in a self-directed environment, teaching one-on-one with my students. This taught me much about working with students in a tutoring capacity balancing my direction with their self-discovery. I now teach college/university students on-line and substitute teach with students grades K thru 12. I have taught courses in United States History, World Civilizations, World Geography, American Government, Economics, English, and Business courses under contract, and additional subjects while substituting.

I enjoy teaching in order to help students, from elementary grades to college/university, succeed in their formal education and apply what they learn to their career and private lives. Though teaching to a group in a classroom is great, it is in the one-on-one process (which I often do in the larger classroom environment) that I can influence their minds and lives the most. My personality is dynamic and I am skilled at challenging my students to learn new information or skills; to understand what they have learned and apply it; and then, to interpret the significance of what they understand and carry it further. This is a framework that has worked in all of the course areas I teach under contract, along with a wider variety of subjects and grades that I have taught while substituting.

I am an outstanding teacher, in areas of History, Geography, Government, and Political Science due to my balanced experience in my education, teaching experience, and field experience. I have earned a BA Degree in European History, MA in United States History, and a PhD in North American History. I am certified to teach History and Social Sciences courses and am currently pursuing an EdD in Curriculum and Instruction. My teaching experience at the high school, adult, and college/university levels has touched on these subjects, and I spent several years teaching in the classroom and one-on-one in the corporate environment. Additional, my knowledge of History and the Social Sciences has been enhanced by being involved in political campaigns, including running for office myself. My understanding of business has resulted from several years in a corporate career.

Having me as a tutor will lead to success in expanding your knowledge and your understanding of the subjects that I teach and developing reading, research, and writing skills. Contact me to learn more and to schedule some tutoring lessons.
