About Steve

Over the years I have known many K-12 and college students that have encountered challenges with math. These challenges have been due to either intimidation, lack of self-confidence, not resonating with teaching methods encountered in school / college or simply due to some form of a learning block specifically with mathematics. I have been helping people with math ever since I was in high school. I know how it feels to be overwhelmed with schoolwork (my big challenges in high school and college fell in the language arts arena). The greatest fulfillment I receive from tutoring is two-fold: 1. Helping people overcome whatever obstacles they are facing with mathematics; and 2. Helping people build the confidence and comprehension necessary to excel in mathematics. Nothing is more rewarding and fulfilling to me than to help people overcome challenges in order to become successful in mathematics. And I want to help you overcome whatever challenges you're having in math!

I earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field of Civil Engineering. During my undergraduate and graduate studies, I took numerous courses in mathematics, including calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and probability & statistics. I have always excelled in mathematics and have a very strong track record in helping people overcome challenges in order to excel in mathematics. I have three children and they all have greatly benefited from my help. I am very patient and competent, and have many techniques and approaches I can apply in order to ensure every one I tutor gains an understanding of whatever aspects of mathematics they are studying. I'd really appreciate the opportunity to tutor you, and welcome correspondence in order to help you ensure we will be a great fit. I am very responsive to emails and am eager to begin a dialogue with you.

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 2

I earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field of Civil/Structural Engineering. I completed and excelled in many math courses, including Algebra 2. I also was a teaching and research assistant, as well as a tutor, focusing on various types of mathematics.
