About Steve


Bio

I am a currently a high school math teacher in the Chicago Public School system. I did my certification coursework at Northwestern University. Prior to that, I worked as an actuary for over 30 years. I believe my combination of industry work experience and now in the classroom gives me a unique view of the needs and expectations of students and their potential employers.

I am a currently a high school math teacher in the Chicago Public School system. I did my certification coursework at Northwestern University. Prior to that, I worked as an actuary for over 30 years. I believe my combination of industry work experience and now in the classroom gives me a unique view of the needs and expectations of students and their potential employers.

My teaching method is to create a student who is a critical thinker, a problem solver. I try to use real world examples whenever possible, and what I wanted in a prospective employee when I was responsible for hiring actuaries at my company.

I use positive reinforcement and engage my students in the learning process by using the inquiry method of learning as much as possible.

Excellent teacher.

Steve was available at short notice and very flexible. He helped my 10th grade daughter with Geometry for a test the next day. Straight after the lesson she said she'd like Steve to come back. Thankful to have found a great tutor.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Steve was very accommodating when we had to change our scheduled time. He seems to have a lot of experience teaching geometry. After this first session, our daughter said she feels a clearer understanding of geometry. Our daughter felt very comfortable with him and we look forward to more sessions.
