About Stephen

Quick Summary:
I am a full-time tutor based in Chicago with 10 years experience in boosting students' scores for the ACT, SAT, PSAT, and GRE. A high test-score is a vital part of a strong application to college or graduate school. No matter what kind of student you are, I will help you achieve the best results possible.

More detail:
I have been a private tutor since 2005. Born and raised in the Chicago area, I received a BA with Honors from DePaul University and an MA in Psychology from National-Louis University, majoring in Psychology. I have used my academic training in learning theory and interpersonal communication, combined with my extensive tutoring experience, to help countless student gain acceptance into top schools of their choice.

I worked for a national private tutoring company for two years before establishing my independent tutoring business in 2007. During that time, I had a 100% success rate in improving students' ACT/SAT scores by a contractually guaranteed amount, and demonstrated my proficiency in working with students who had poor results with previous tutors. Today, I work with students all over the Chicagoland area to improve their results for entrance exams and academic tests, as well as offering generalized academic preparation services.

I also have extensive experience working with students with special needs:
* Developing study plans for students with learning differences such as dyslexia and ADHD, including students with 504 Plans or IEP's
* ELL and ESL students
* Coaching for students who experience test-taking anxiety
* Working with neurodiverse students, such as those diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome

I would love the opportunity to help you or your child achieve the scores you want. Drop me a line!
