About Steve

I have an engineering background but I am also an attorney. I love to tutor because it gives me great satisfaction to help others learn. I love to work with individuals who are serious about their education. It would be my pleasure to help someone else succeed in their goals.

Many years ago I took my first course in Chemistry. I had the highest grade in every exam given that year. The next year I took Chemistry II, and again I had the highest grade in every exam that year also. I realized I had a natural aptitude for Chemistry, the knowledge I gained have never left me. Math was a little different however. I struggled with Algebra my first year but it gradually became better. By my first year of College the light bulb come on fully and Mathematics not only became easy but fun. I have a BS degree in Nuclear Engineering Technology and a Jurist Doctorate. I have taken college courses in Calculus, Differential equations and Probability and Statistics. I started tutoring in College and have done so for over 25 years. I have tutored many students from elementary to college level and have taught Physics on a high school level for one year. I have tutored Math subjects from elementary mathematics to Calculus. this includes Algebra I,II, Trig, Pre-calculus, and Geometry.

I am very personable so you will feel comfortable working with me. I am a professional and will work with anyone regardless of age, race, religion. ethnicity or gender. If you are having problems with mathematics or any other areas of my qualifications contact me (Chemistry and Law). I am very determined and will not give up on my students. I want you to understand the subject to the level where it becomes easy and fun. You will be able to teach others when you have been taught by me. I believe learning should be fun and will guarantee you that it won't be boring and you will enjoy it. I strive to make things simple, so don't be afraid or ashamed to say you don't understand or to ask questions. I will repeat it a hundred times if I have to. I will try different approaches until you get it.

whenever I am tutoring a student, I ask the student if they understand the work before continuing. This was done after every problem that was solved, they are encouraged to ask questions if they don't understand. I also do an assessment during the lesson to see why the student may not be understanding the work, it is usually because they do not understand the prior material that the present lesson is built on. In this case the student needed extra help on foundation materials. This is not an impediment to success, but requires patience to achieve the desired result.

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 tutored Algebra in college and have also done so for many years When I taught Physics in high school, I spent a significant amount of time helping the students in algebra. I have taken courses in Calculus I,II and III and also Differential Equations and Probability and Statistics. I understand Algebra well and know how to make it simple.

Chemistry

This is my favorite subject because there is so much around us that directly relates to chemistry. I was an A chemistry student is high school taking chemistry 1 and 2. in college I was a chemistry major before changing to Nuclear engineering, I have taken college chemistry 1 and 2 and Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, I have been tutoring chemistry for many years.

Computer Engineering

Understanding how the computer works is very important. I once had my own business repairing and building computers. I have built over 75 desktop computers. I am a certified A+ Technician. I offer a course in computer building and general software installation and troubleshooting.

Law

My experience in the legal field spans 15 years as a Paralegal Law clerk and Attorney. I am a graduate of the University of Missouri-KC law school. I am an expert on business law, to include business formations and filings. I am also an expert on Wills Trust and Estate Planning.

Prealgebra

I have tutored students in this subject area for over 30 years. In college I taught pre algebra in the learning center. As an engineering student I have taken Calculus I, II and III and Differential Equation and have passed them all. I know hoe to make this simple and I enjoy teaching it.

SAT Math

SAT math is very important for college entrance. I enjoy helping students achieve their goal of getting a higher math score on their SAT. I have taught this Math for over 25 years. I am competent to teach it because I understand this subject thoroughly and can impart it to others. I have taken all calculus courses and statistics and probability.

Saxophone

This is one of my favorite instruments. I have played the saxophone for 10 years. Although I have been a musician for over 40 years, the saxophone is my latest accomplishment and the one I most enjoy. I can help beginners and to sight read and play by air.

Trigonometry

I received an A in trigonometry when I took it in High school and liked it ever since, I have tutored Trig to students for over 25 years. Understanding trig is necessary to doing well in physics and most engineering courses. I spent many hours teaching trig to students just so they can do physics problems. A basic understanding of Trig is necessary.

Trumpet

I have played the trumpet for 40 years. I can help beginners in learning how to play this instrument. I was trained and played the instrument throughout high school and college. Not a music major, but very good at beginner's training.

My daughter said she was more confused about her assignment than before the session. She did not feel Mr. Steve was completely helpful throughout her tutoring. He was nice and professional but my daughter did not connect with him.
