About Steven

My passion is teaching & training and I am extremely excited when an opportunity to do these things prevents itself. While working full time I completed my bachelor's degree in Organization Administration so I understand a compact life with the need to accomplish certain goals. Technical certifications of mine are Support Center Analyst and ITIL Foundations V1. I have created and taught a variety of classes ranging from Basic Computer tips to Advance Public Speaking for Presentations.

I specialize in tutoring business professionals for office presentations and public speaking for adults young and older. I having been teaching bible study at my local church for over seven years and am the youth leader. While working with the youth I often assist in math homework tutoring them to better card markings. I believe that understanding a concept is often more important then just getting work complete. For two years I worked for Project Seed, where they use mathematics and research-based teaching methods to boost learning and academic excellence among urban youth.

I hold myself to a high standard so I request feedback as often as possible and billing only occurs from satisfied students. I hate to admit that I give homework, but I also understand time constraints. Cancellations must be done 48 hours in advance and I allow make up sessions.

I prefer to tutor in libraries; I have private rooms for individuals or groups in Bloomfield. I am happy to travel to another location that is more convenient for the student when needed. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies or presenting needs!

I achieved high grades in math subjects from high school to college then tested out of most of my course in those areas. Experienced in other related courses as well like Calculus, Statistics and Trigonometry.

I am a licensed Minister and an ordained Elder and have been leading bible study classes for several years now. I have taught classes and have a huge passion for proper public speaking to be taught because we all have the ability to perform great. I have hosted business classes for groups in presentation skills with PowerPoint as well.

I have 11 years experience in Information Technology Service Desk support as the lead go-to tech. I can tutor complicated concepts of computers to all types of skill levels from beginner to executive as well as other technical devices.

My areas my sound like they are all over, but I promise my best skills and teaching skills will defiantly benefit you. Just give me a try and you will not regret it! I personally guarantee a few laughs at each session with a smile to match.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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

For two years I worked for Project Seed, a Detroit based organization with the goal to teach and improve math concepts then teach advanced Algebra to younger Elementary students. This only started me on the love for math and all areas which allowed me to be in advanced classes in high school then Pre Test out of most college courses for my Undergraduate degree.

I am younger and have a unique way of making sure my students understand the material and we just don't get work down.

Bible Studies

I have been a youth leader at my church, House of Prayer and Praise, on the west side of Detroit for about eight years. Last year I was ordained as an Elder due to the duties i've been handling. I teach bible lessons each Wednesday and twice a month on Sundays for the youth of church ages 10-22 years old. I also teach the main adults about once a month on Sundays and some months it is more than that. I do not have a certification in biblical studies, but this is the ministry I left my corporate job for, to be full time in church ministry.

Chess

I have played the game of Chess for over 20 years after being taught by my mother. I was only in the 6th grade then but my love for the game quickly lead me to the chess team of my middle school. I placed third-fourth throughout my middle school game play on our team and achieved my highest mark of Silver in the state of Michigan tournament. We travelled for nationals and I did well but not well enough to place for a medal. I love teaching other subjects and would be an excellent chess tutor for anyone who is newer to the game and want to advance their skills.

General Computer

11 1/2 years as senior Service Desk IT Analyst. I have Helpdesk and customer support skills that have assist me to explain all concepts to other individuals to assist them in their day-to-day computer needs. I have host multiple classes on tips and tricks for computers and particular Microsoft Office programs. I am very down to earth and pretty young so my way of teaching will always put a smile on your face and new concepts in your mind.

Public Speaking

I have been working in the corporate America for over 11 years now as IT support which means I have been speaking to people for years. I know this normally means you only interact on the phone, but my personality and ability to communicate concepts to people launched me win awards and promotions. I have taught classes on speaking with groups on the corporate level with customer service as the focus. I tour with teaching the communication circle and understanding the dynamics of that process. Then occasion speaking to maximize your audience's understanding and connection points. Last, we learn about tangibles like using software, props and other items to enhance your speaking.

Very knowledgeable - makes learning easy and fun.

I feel fortunate that I I found Steven at WyzAnt. I'm starting an on- line graduate school program in May and I have a lot to do to get up to speed on the computer in general and specific programs in particular. Steven teaches in an organized and logical manner. After only three lessons I've learned the basics of file management, sending attachments, how to cut, copy and paste and formatting a
