I am the father of 3 teens, and have been a soccer coach, youth group leader, and scouting leader. I am also an engineering and business professional with BS and MS degrees.

I tutor Algebra, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Algebra 2, Analysis, Trigonometry, Calculus, and Physics. Seasonally I work with students on SAT preparation, which I love and excel at. I have worked successfully with students of all abilities, from Honors to Summer School.

I work in Acton and Concord and surrounding towns, (Stow, Boxborough, Harvard, Sudbury, Maynard, Littleton) and along the Route 2 corridor, including Harvard, Lancaster, Ayer.

Please contact me for questions or to setup an initial brief meeting, so I can learn your student's needs and your objectives, and for you and your student to see if it's a good fit.

Statistics

Tutoring Statistics, typically to high school Seniors. I help them better understand their classroom lessons, by discussing the material, answering and asking questions, doing homework together, reviewing material, teaching missed classes, extending their thinking. Especially, I help them move from dry statistics to much more interesting application to their own interest, such as anthropology, business, sports, international relations, etc.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school math including Algebra 1, and have tutored dozens of Algebra students one-on-one. Algebra is such a fundamental skill for all further math courses, that it really needs to be mastered. And to do so, students need to have solid capabilities from earlier pre-algebra years, such as with arithmetic, fractions, decimals, negative numbers. I assess those abilities early in our sessions together, and incorporate practice as needed. Then students are more successful in learning the so-important skills in Algebra such as solving equations and inequalities, graphing functions, factoring, solving word problems. I make sure they master the Algebra topics, and often while relating them to each student's own interest such as sports, music, gaming, dance, or possible career path, and occasionally using on-line drills and games for fun and skill-building. My students improve their mastery, confidence, and grades.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school math including Algebra 2, and have tutored dozens of Algebra 2 students one-on-one. A frequent downfall of students in Algebra 2 is weakness on fundamentals from earlier grades, such as in equation solving, graphing, working with negative numbers, fractions, and exponents. I look at these skills early in our sessions together, and incorporate strengthening exercises as needed. Then we can more successfully access Algebra 2 topics without continually tripping when solving problems in such topics as Quadratic and Polynomial Functions and Inequalities, Trigonometry, Conic Sections, Rational Expressions and Equations, Exponential and Logarithmic relations. I have a good track record of raising students' skills and grades.
Calculus,

Calculus

I am an experienced high school math teacher, and engineer, and have been tutoring math and Calculus for 7 years. I have helped more than a dozen students in Calculus so far, of varying levels from introductory, AP Calculus, to College Freshman Calculus. "Excellent Tutor! Steve is an amazing find! I have been looking for a knowledgeable tutor to help my son with his honors calculus and honors physics. Steve was extremely knowledgeable! He was a great aid in helping my son work through the material he has been studying. "
Geometry,

Geometry

I have 5 years of experience teaching high school Geometry, and have tutored dozens of Geometry students one-on-one. Students are 1st introduced to the use of logic in high school geometry, and this is a new skill to develop, and essential to complete proofs. This is the biggest help I give Geometry students - I have them approach a problem both from the conclusion, working backward ("for this to be true, what do I need? How can I get that?") and forward ("Given this, what does it do for me? And what else can I get from it? How does it link to what I need?"). I have THEM talk out the problem using this logic, with a little coaching, until they have solved it, and then they can write proofs with ease. I also enhance learning and test performance by understanding just where students are often weak, and making sure they have solid skills in the many Geometry topics such as Parallel Lines & Angles, Transformations, Right Triangles and Trigonometry, Circles, Sectors, Tangents, etc.
Physics,

Physics

I have a deep understanding of physics from my education and work as an engineer, and have tutored more than 2 dozen students in Physics, so far. Students seem to have the most trouble in a few areas: -In mechanics, after studying motion in 1 and 2 dimensions, force, and friction, then analyzing complex motion problems such as objects on an incline, using pulleys, or with multiple forces. -Electrical circuits with multiple branches. -Understanding & working with myriad new units of measure (Newtons, Joules, Coulombs, Watts, Volts, Amps, etc). I help students with a more organized and thoughtful approach to problem solving, and to develop a deeper understanding and insight into the big ideas in Physics (and have raised grades as a result).
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have 5 years of experience as a High School Math teacher, depth in math topics in Calculus and beyond from my education and work as an engineer, and have tutored 2 dozen or more Precalculus students one-on-one. Precalculus is both preparation for a following calculus course, AND often a last course in discrete math, so it covers a wide range of topics, some of which are not specifically useful to calculus (such as probability and combinatorics). It relies on solid skills from previous courses in Algebra 1 and 2. I find that students are often challenged in precalculus by the depth of thought, longer procedures, new material not seen in earlier courses, and by their need to use skills from earlier courses such as in function analysis and graphing, equation solving, exponents and logarithms. I work with them to gain understanding of the new material, and to successfully apply a wide range of necessary skills, increasing their mastery, confidence, and grades.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have been successfully helping student prepare for, and improved their performance, on the SAT math sections for 7 years. I am fully prepared and practiced in the 'new' SAT from 2016 onward. Your student will be working one-on-one with me on SAT problems of exactly the type(s) they most need to practice. We will establish goals and a rough timeline before we start. We will work together out of several published SAT prep & practice books that I recommend. Your student can do extra prep in between sessions if they have the time and motivation, or work just during our sessions. While a big-name SAT prep company may have a class with nice 'packaging', they won't work effectively with your student's individual strengths and weaknesses like I will. Your student won't sit and sleep through a class lecture, they will be working one-on-one with me on SAT problems of exactly the type(s) they most need to practice. "Steve is a great tutor and we were lucky to find him. He is very patient and experienced. He found out my daughter's problem after the first class. He helped my daughter become more mindful when doing math work. He also helped her going through SAT prep sessions, which greatly helped her improve her SAT score from 700 to 760." - Ying, 12 lessons with Steve

Experienced and accomplished math tutor

This is the second child for which Steve has provided tutoring services. Steve is reviewing Precalculus topics with my son in order to prepare him for Calculus in the fall. Steve is very well prepared, explains the concepts in a way that makes sense to my son, checks for understanding, and follows up with review work to complete in between sessions. Following the session, Steve sent a summary of what they had worked on, as well as a detailed email with additional information for my son. Steve is a wonderful tutor!

Michelle, 6 lessons with Steve

Great Test prep

Steve, my daughter said she prepared well for this test. She said you clarified all the doubts she had or things she was confused about. Extra prep from your other books was a good idea as well!!

Great Stats 101 Review

My daughter will soon take her intro stats final. Steve has been reviewing the material with her. We’ve met with Steve twice and he’s been punctual, flexible with meeting times and pleasant and has helped my daughter calmly review in a subject she finds very challenging. She is feeling confident that she will be prepared for the final (college-level class).

Sue, 4 lessons with Steve

Very patient and flexible

Thank you for the chocolate and reviewing the Calculus. Steve is very helpful reinforcing what I am learning in class. Steve is very good at breaking down the concepts into easy to understand steps for my Calculus homework.

Cheryl, 18 lessons with Steve

Thank you, Steve!

My daughter was studying for a Geometry test and needed help grasping some new concepts. Steve provided the exact level of support she needed and answered all of her questions. He helped quell her anxiety about the test and she is feeling much more prepared.

Erin, 1 lesson with Steve

All around A+ recommendation

My son's Geometry grades improved dramatically in a short period of time. He enjoys working with Steve and his confidence has improved along with his grades. Always meets on time where they agreed (library) and finds an extra time slot when my son has a big exam coming up.

Peter, 15 lessons with Steve

Helpful and patient tutor

At our first lesson Steve helped our daughter prepare for a chapter test. The content was using exponents, and factoring expressions. There were a number of forms of expressions to factor, including polynomials, single and multivariate, variable exponents, sums and differences of square and cubes, and complex expressions that included perfect squares. A couple they had not seen before, but my daughter had the class notes on how to do them, so they figured them out together, which was great. Several she had not been taught either (like trinomials squared) but they figured those ones out too. Steve has a kind, quiet and patient teaching style, which suits our daughter very well. She very much looks forward to working with Steve on a weekly basis in order to keep her grade up. Highly recommended.

Excellent Tutor!

Steve is an amazing find! I have been looking for a knowledgeable tutor to help my son with his honors calculus and honors physics. Steve was extremely knowledgeable! He was a great aid in helping my son work through the material he has been studing. He also sent a me a very detailed report of their study session, which I found extreemly helpful. I'm looking forward to seeing how my son progress with his help.

Cleared up difficult concepts

Steve helped my daughter correct a mistake she was making repeatedly He was patient and straight forward about what they did and didn't cover during the hour. She knew exactly how to proceed from there.
