About Steven

I have been tutoring in a middle and a high school the past two years. I've been helping my students with multiple subjects, but I'm most comfortable with literature, writing, and algebra. In college, I minored in Creative Writing and placed 4th in the Wordfest writing competition two years in a row. I'm currently working on a novel, and a series of short stories.

In an educational psychology course, the professor said, "students will float to the mark you set." This is an idea that I keep in mind when working with my students; I keep high expectations and challenge them to improve. However, I also believe that overwhelming a student is unnecessary and counterproductive. I've seen too many students shut down from being given too much to handle.

If you need to cancel for whatever reason, I ask that you try to give at least two hours notice. My current availability is after 3pm on Mondays, after 3pm on Saturdays, and all day Sundays.

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.

Algebra 1

I've spent a year tutoring a student in Algebra 1. I have the additional advantage of sitting in on his Algebra class, given that I'm principally there to scribe for him. This helped significantly in keeping me fresh on the subject.

Prealgebra

I spent a year tutoring students in a self-contained class Pre-Algebra in a middle school. I help my students to be able to do the work both with and without a calculator. I've also spent a year doing Algebra 1 in a high school, which requires previous lessons learned in order to be successful.

Vocabulary

I tested into the 99th percentile in Language skills on the ASVAP test. I've taken multiple English, Literature, and Writing classes in college. I've also tutored students on these subjects during the last two years.
