I began playing violin when I was nine years old and viola when I was fourteen. I also play the fidola (five-string viola). Over the years I have played in several local community orchestras, as well as in contra dance and country dance bands.

Great job

My daughter enjoyed working with Steven very much. She had tried other tutors but did not feel they had a good grasp of the subject and also did not like their methods of explanation. She felt Steven did a great job explaining the concepts and had a great knowledge of College Algebra. Thank you Steven!

Excellent Tutor

Steven clarifies Calculus problems that I had much trouble with. The first quiz I took after my lesson was a grade of 90.

Michael, 5 lessons with Steven

Very astute tutor

Steven was very low key and astute in picking up areas that need addressing. He immediately started working on skills and was prompt and respectful of schedules! We look forward to our next session.
