About Steve

I am a test preparation tutor for the SAT, PSAT, ACT (math/science), AP, ASVAB and many more tests. I am also a tutor for various junior high and high school mathematics and science subjects. I have a strong background and understanding of the subjects I teach as I have a graduate degree in engineering.

I believe that encouraging students to fully utilize their abilities will give them self-confidence while taking the university admissions tests, as well as their regular school tests. To me, this is as important as teaching the concepts of subjects being studied. My tutoring approach reflects this philosophy. I have taught for five years algebra, plane geometry, solid geometry, calculus, physics, and many other science subjects to junior and high school students before.

My tutoring approach begins with identifying the strengths/weaknesses of students and their learning capabilities. Based on this information, I build a study plan that is geared specifically towards each student, and one that will yield a target score within the specified time-frame.

My tutoring style is easygoing, yet focused. The sessions are thorough and intensive. I believe in an optimistic and upbeat teaching approach as a chief element in studying.

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.


I am a licensed civil engineer. I have more than 25 years of experience designing various civil engineering projects using Autodesk AutoCAD, Land desktop and Civil 3D (more advanced versions of AutoCAD).

Through my previous employers I have attended many seminars on the 3 subjects listed above. I also have certificates of completions of such seminars and my state licensing certificate available for uploading upon request.
