About Stephanie


Bio

Hi,

I’m a very patient and inspiring tutor. I’ve assisted people from grade school through graduate school reach their academic goals – whether these were to improve standardized test performance, to master new material or to build solid math and English foundation knowledge.

I’m committed to my students and fight for them to succeed. I have a dedicated following at the tutoring center where I work, and now I’m branching out on my own. I have excellent resources – even for the New...

Hi,

I’m a very patient and inspiring tutor. I’ve assisted people from grade school through graduate school reach their academic goals – whether these were to improve standardized test performance, to master new material or to build solid math and English foundation knowledge.

I’m committed to my students and fight for them to succeed. I have a dedicated following at the tutoring center where I work, and now I’m branching out on my own. I have excellent resources – even for the New SAT, provide individualized programs, and continuously track learning.

I know the earlier students can merge fundamental knowledge with critical thinking and advanced problem solving, the easier their academic path will be.

I enjoy working with people of all abilities. In addition to working with the typical student population, I have success teaching LD, GT, GT/LD and ESOL students.

I have a PhD from the University of Chicago in Statistics and Economics, an MBA from Cornell University, and a BS in Engineering from Cornell University. I’ve earned teaching awards from my MBA students and received Montgomery County Public School's “Parent of the Year” award for my contributions to the learning disabled student population.

I’ve taught at the University of Chicago, Cornell University and DePaul University. I’m one class away from being a certified Maryland High School Math teacher.

One of reasons I’m effective as a teacher is that I have overcome significant learning challenges. I have significant learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia and ADHD). I needed to figure out new ways of looking at the material presented in school because the explanations in class didn’t make sense to me. Besides having learning difficulties myself, I’m the parent of a twice exception child (GT and LD).

If you are the parent of a child with special needs, you’ll be thrilled with your child’s accomplishments.

If you are a student and you want extra help with a subject, contact me. Your entire outlook will change by the time we're done.

I know that my proven, patient, and practical approach will transform the way you learn, eliminate the challenges you're facing and help you achieve your goals.

I look forward to working with you to achieve a whole new level of success!

Patient and Understanding Instructor

Stephanie P. was amazing! She asked a lot of questions to recall my memory. When I was stuck on a specific concept she broke it down into smaller parts for me until I saw the big picture. Stephanie was super patient with me and guided me through several content problems I have been struggling with on the Praxis 2 Math exam. She even pulled some additional problems for me to look at with her that I didn’t already bring to our lesson. After one session with Stephanie my nerves about this test have already started to calm down and I have more confidence in myself. I will definitely work with her again before my exam!

Rindi, 1 lesson with Stephanie

Very helpful

Stephanie was very knowledgeable and able to help me get through a bunch of questions, including ones two other tutors weren't able to answer. She explained the areas I was having trouble with in a clear way that made sense to me.

Sarah, 1 lesson with Stephanie

Knowledgeable, flexible, patient & able to adapt to my learning style.

Stephanie helped me understand statistic concepts and methodologies needed to work problems and prepare for exams. She is good at explaining things in a way that works with my learning style, so that I understand the material and methods to be able to apply them.

Patient and Efficient Teacher

Before I began working with Stephanie, my ACT scores were lower than I would’ve have liked with a overall score of 24. I severely struggled with the math and science sections of the test and I couldn’t understand what methods of studying to implement during that time. However, Stephanie took the time to walk me through problems so I can finish them quickly and she helped me discover my learning type so I could hone the skills necessary to attaining a better score. After our weekly sessions, I felt more confident in my work during the next ACT, which averaged out to a 28. Not only did I enjoy working with her on the ACT but I also anticipate working with her in the future.

Amazing, relevant and encouraging

Amazing, relevant and encouraging! Stephanie taught my niece how to prepare for the high school placement test. My niece learned techniques and how to solve problems in new and different ways. I would recommend her Highly.

Knowledge and Patient - Awesome combination

Stephanie recently started tutoring my son, a 10th grade, precalculus. She is very friendly and managed to put my son at ease and could see his strengths and has started to work on his knowledge gaps. We hope to continue with her through the school year.

Business Stats tutor

Stephanie is an excellent Business Stats tutor. I liked it that she was prepared with the problem sets I needed help with. We went through them at a pace that allowed me to understand the material. Stephanie is very knowledgeable on the subject and I'd be happy to recommended her.

Knowledgeable and clear

My daughter understands her complex Algebra 2 concepts better now! Stephanie is personable and responsive, and she connected with my daughter. We'll definitely be using her services again.

Amazing and kind tutor

Stephanie has been helping my high school kids with math for the past year. Two have various math disabilities and she has been able to work through the cobwebs. She is very knowledgeable regarding the MCPS curriculum. She is also available for more advanced math, SAT and ACT as well. Do not pass her up!
