Bio

Since I started teaching and training twenty years ago, I've loved helping people learn new things. Over the years, then, I've developed a style that is both easygoing and incredibly successful.

Since I started teaching and training twenty years ago, I've loved helping people learn new things. Over the years, then, I've developed a style that is both easygoing and incredibly successful.

A tutoring session with me will start with me working hard to understand where you are in relation to the assignment at hand. Soon, I'll be guiding you -- not answering the questions for you, but helping guide you to the answers yourself. I don't leave till you understand the questions at hand.

I have taught basic statistics and tutored graduate statistics, and I have used statistics both in my job and in my research. Thus, I have a solid understanding of the basic principles as well as the tools of the trade.

Physics was my first academic love; it's simply a mathematical approach to understanding the physical world around us. I love sharing that with others, from teaching undergrad courses to tutoring high school level. I've been a principle participant in a physics learning fair for kids, and it was a true joy.

Twenty years ago, I stepped into the world of teaching as a computer tutor. I was trained well, at a company that required us to maintain a very high satisfaction rate on daily student surveys. I am certified in JavaScript from Certified Internet Webmaster courseware, and have taught JavaScript at Charter College several times. My success under the pressure of that job gave me a lot of confidence in my ability to help others succeed no matter the software involved or the student's initial comfort level.

I earned an MBA in Telecommunications Management from Alaska Pacific University in April, 2006. Since earning my MBA, I have practiced business every day as a for-profit college dean. I live in a world driven by numbers, and margins, and customer satisfaction rates. Thus, I not only know the academic side of the realm, but I'm also intimately familiar with the dirty details of real life.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used and trained Outlook since the client was actually named Exchange. In the late 90's I was the contractor who trained the Alyeska Pipeline workers stationed at all locations along the Alaska Pipeline in the migration of their email from Pine to Exchange. I've trained, formally and informally, both college students and staff members to use many of the various features of Outlook such as BCC, calendar, tasks, and migrating information between emails, calendar, and tasks, for many years.

Microsoft Windows

The first training class I performed was on Microsoft Windows 3.1. I got better as the software did, and by 1998 I was an MCSE training technicians to support Windows NT, 95, and 98. I have also run basic computer skills courses for agencies such as the Small Business Association in Wasilla, AK.

Differential Equations

I loved my DiffEq course at West Point, but later in graduate-level physics courses I really came to understand the topic, as the graduate study of physics relies heavily on that area of math. I successfully completed one academic year (18 credits) of masters level work in physics, including 6 semester credits of mathematical methods for physicists.

Great Pre-College Algebra Tutor

Stephen was great at teaching in a way that is easy to understand and patient when explaining areas that needed more review! He was also great at connecting the concepts learned and building on those skills. Will def use again for tutoring!

Jessie , 9 lessons with Stephen

Knowledgeable and Awesome

Stephen was wonderful! He made several math concepts easy for me to understand, since I haven't taken a math class in years. I would highly recommend him.

Michelle, 1 lesson with Stephen

Very knowledgeable and patient

My son finds Stephen a very nice and helpful man. He had a much better understanding of the syllabus after seeing Stephen.

Susie, 4 lessons with Stephen

His knowledge base on the subject is impressive

Before Stephen come over for his session he email a subnetting sheet with different subnet addresses on it. When he arrived he started from where he left off the day before and went over my what I retain. He ensured that I have the base knowledge of how to understand subnetting addresses.

Patrick, 2 lessons with Stephen

Knowledgeable and thorough

Stephen seems very knowledgeable. He is real hands on in his teaching style and makes you think. He is a great teacher!

Mike, 2 lessons with Stephen

Very knowlegable and experienced tutor

Stephen, was able to promptly point out my strengths and weaknesses without "sugar coating" and that is what I like and respect. He has also an abundant knowledge and experience on GRE material that I am preparing for. In addition, I very much like his teaching approach and I appreciate his honesty. Lastly, I strongly believe that Stephen will help me to reach my goal.
