About Stephen

Dear potential student,

I am a college graduate. I majored in math and anthropology. I have had a lot of experience tutoring math topics, ranging from pre-algebra to calculus. I have also tutored autistic individuals. Finally, I have a strong background in various social studies fields as well through my work in anthropology, including history and sociology/anthropology. I have been teaching and/or tutoring for years. I tend to tailor my tutoring style to each student, but I have done a few different basic approaches. These include homework help, review of basic concepts and lessons as needed. I am rather flexible.

Here is a more detailed overview of my experience:

For four years as an undergraduate, I ran calculus help sessions as a TA for the math department. I helped students work through any calculus problems, particularly calculus 1 and 2, and I taught any concepts that they were having difficulty with. In addition, I tutored dozens of high school students informally in various math subjects (ranging from algebra to calculus).

I also taught math for seven-months in Nakasongola, Uganda. There I taught trigonometry and Newtonian physics (which is part of Uganda's math curriculum) to the U.S. equivalent of twelfth grade students.

For six summers, I taught autistic students at a special needs summer school. There I taught math, programming, and social skills, primarily one-on-one. From this, I have experience helping students on the autistic spectrum.

Finally in the summer of 2013, I taught junior high math at a summer school program.

As shown, I have had significant experience in tutoring especially in the various fields of math, but I also have expertise in programming, autistic special needs, and social sciences. When I tutor, I generally let the student set the pace of the sessions, according to his or her needs. Often students simply need homework help, in which case we go through the homework together. Some of my students have needed more extensive teaching, and for them, I have built lessons according to their preferences. I hope you consider me for your tutoring needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anthropology

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Anthropology, from Wheaton College. I have conducted three major ethnographic projects. I am well-read in ethnographic research and anthropological theory.

Aspergers

I have had a lot of experience tutoring and teaching individuals diagnosed with aspergers or otherwise on the autistic spectrum. I have taught at a special needs summer school for six summers to students who were diagnosed with aspergers or autism. There, I taught math, programming (Java), and social skills. I was specially hired for my ability to understand and relate to individuals on the spectrum.

Autism

I have had a lot of experience tutoring and teaching individuals diagnosed with autism. I have taught at an autistic summer school for six summers. There, I taught math, programming (Java), and social skills. I was specially hired for my ability to understand and relate to individuals on the spectrum.

Bible Studies

I am a student of Wheaton College where I took a total of 18 credits in Biblical Studies. I have also led Bible Studies and other functions at my local church. I am confident in Bible Studies.

Discrete Math

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Math from Wheaton College. I have taken Discrete Math and several related classes, including Linear Algrebra, Modern Algebra, Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, and Chaos and Dynamical Systems. I am confident working with discrete math.

Linear Algebra

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Math, from Wheaton College. I have taken Linear Algrebra, and several more advanced, algreba-based classes, including Modern Algebra, Real Analysis, and Complex Analysis. I am confident working with linear systems.

Logic

I have a Bachelor of Science in Math from Wheaton College. I have taken Discrete Math, in which one studies Boolean logic, and several related classes, including Linear Algebra, Modern Algebra, Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, Chaos and Dynamical Systems, and Programming. In addition, I was on the Debate Team for 4 years, where I received formal training in argumentative logic. I am confident working with logic.

Public Speaking

I did college-level debate for three years, where I was formally trained in public speaking. I have also taught, which involves public speaking. I am particularly experienced in extemporaneous Parliamentary style debate. I have won numerous public speaking awards.
