“**Top-Notch**”

Hi! My name is Stephen and teaching is what I love to do. I have over six years' experience tutoring and teaching students of all ages, and I'm always ready for a new assignment. I have done most of my work in the United States through the Huntington Learning Center, where I helped my students prepare for the SAT and ACT tests. My method is to

Stephen is truly a top-notch tutor. He helped me prepare for a difficult Math test. I studied with a couple of tutors before and was not content until I found Stephen. He is very professional, patient and diligent. From the moment we began studying Math, Stephen had a plan of action worked out, gave me lots of homework, and at the start of each new lesson, he made sure I understood the previous material. Stephen went out of his way to ensure that I do good on the test, not only did he help me with Math but also provided valuable test taking skills and techniques. I appreciated the fact that Stephen would bring various practice tests similar to the one I was supposed to take. He put the effort to find these tests online on his own time. Also, Stephen timed me while I was working on these practice tests to see if I can finish within the time limit and then gave me important time management advise. Stephen was always on time and ready to work, which I greatly admired. Unlike other tutors that I have worked with, Stephen was really my mentor in the Math department. He gave me detailed instructions on what to do before the test day and on the test day. He was the only tutor I worked with that was able to really explain Math to me in plain and simple terms. Stephen went above and beyond the call of duty. I would recommend Stephen to anyone seeking help with Math, preparing for various tests or just brushing up on some Math skills. Thank you Stephen for all your help!

Stephen is an excellent Algebra 2 / Trig tutor. He ensures the student thoroughly understands the concepts, is encouraging, and patient. He is also very flexible with scheduling and is always very punctual.

Excellent tutor, very reliable and knowledgeable! My daughter was struggling with statistics and she was very happy after meeting with Stephen!!

I have little time to write about this session, but Stephen is helping me with the GRE. From the first lesson I could gather he is extremely gifted in analyzing the problems associated with the GRE. I look forward to the next session and the homework assigned. He is patient, calm, and clear with explaining things.

Stephen, is an absolute delight to work with.! I hired him to work with my son on his Geometry homework and saw immediate improvements with his quiz scores. Because he did such an incredible job with helping my son, I also hired him to help me with my Statistics class. He truly connects with his students, and I would recommend anyone looking for a tutor who really knows their stuff as it pertains to Mathematics, to call on Stephen. A+ Superb!

I highly recommend Stephen. He is a wonderful tutor. I had to take the SAT test and I had trouble with the math section. Stephen is very understanding and patient. He was able to approach math problems from a student's perspective. He is also great about accommodating my schedule whenever possible. Thank you for all your help!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have helped students prepare for standardized tests since 2009. Additionally I worked at the Huntington Learning Center doing standardized test prep for three years.

Also, I am an ESL teacher, so I am well-versed with the intricacies of grammar points that are frequently tested on this exam.

I studied Spanish for five years in high school and college. I am now a professor of English at Universidad Externado in Bogotá, Colombia, and have lived in Latin America for five years, where I became fluent in the language. Much of my experience and skills teaching English as a foreign language translate into teaching Spanish, and I can relate first-hand to native English speakers who are learning this language.
