About Stephanie

Do you need help with high school science or math? I've been a certified teacher for 10 years, currently teach algebra-based physics, and have experience teaching just about every science class offered at the secondary level: physical science, biology, chemistry, and physics, as well as ACT Science prep. I've tutored students in math as well as science - pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry. My favorite part of teaching is helping students deepen their conceptual understanding of complex topics through concrete examples, and I have a reputation for being able to help every student learn. I consider "struggling learners" my specialty. If you are struggling, or love a student who is struggling, I would be so happy to help! Do you need help with high school science or math?

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Science

In the course of my high school teaching career, I have taught ACT prep courses several times. I've also worked with students one on one to raise their ACT scores. When I took the ACT myself as a student, I scored a perfect 36 on the English and Science sections (31 composite).

ADD/ADHD

As a teacher with 5 years of experience co-teaching alongside special education teachers, I have been able to develop my skills in working with students who struggle with ADD/ADHD when it affects their learning. I am able to take long, complicated topics and split them apart into smaller, more manageable chunks of information that are easier for ADD/ADHD students to master. I also have experience helping students organize paperwork and information in a way that makes it easier for them to retrieve what they need when they need it.

Study Skills

I consider working with and helping struggling learners to be my strong suit as a teacher. I have experience working with students to organize their paperwork, content, and time to maximize their learning. I've been successful in breaking large tasks and concepts down into smaller, more manageable tasks and concepts so that students have an easier time completing them and don't get too overwhelmed.

Very pleased! My daughter had great communication with Stephanie!

My daughter was so excited at the end of the session when she got in the car with me. She said, "I think I understand why I was having a hard time with math, and Stephanie took the time to talk to me about the concept and because she was patient with me and let me figure it out on my own with just a few clues it gave me more confidence to solve the problem." She actually would like to work with St
