About Steven

I choose to tutor because I have a passion for helping students to work toward their full potential. I have extensive experience in mathematics and math related fields. I have tutored a variety of ages and ability levels. I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Northwestern University, which led me to pursue my Master's Degree in Engineering Science. I have worked for many years in fields that require mathematics, so when students inevitably ask "when are we ever going to use this in real life?" I am prepared with a variety of real world applications. I take great pleasure in helping students to reach their full potential.

I specialize in tutoring Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry and Trig and am willing to help students prepare for the ACT and SAT math subject tests.

In my 8 years of experience with tutoring I have found that challenging students, but providing adequate support is the best way to facilitate learning. I believe that each student's needs are different and am willing to alter the lesson plans to meet the needs of my students. I will admit that I expect a lot from my students, because I would like to maximize their potential, but I also am very patient and willing to take the time to make sure my students understand. I also believe in tailoring my lessons to my students because I believe a student-centered philosophy is the best approach to learning.

I prefer to tutor online, because I believe it offers more flexibility and my base rate is $45/hour for online sessions, but I may discounted rates.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in the field of mathematics.
