About Stephanie

After spending several months teaching English abroad, I realized that educating others is what I am most passionate about. I would love the opportunity to watch others succeed, especially in areas that they previously struggled. Few things bring me as much joy as seeing a student work hard and then experience the joy of truly comprehending a difficult concept. One reason that I am a wonderful tutor is that I am able to adapt well so if I see that a student is not understanding a concept the way it is being presented, I can present it in a completely different way.

After teaching English abroad, including spending a year teaching at a school in Ecuador, I have learned how to explain grammar, work on pronunciation, and develop fun vocabulary building activities. Last year I served as an AmeriCorps volunteer working at the DLC as a GED preparation tutor. I was responsible for developing curricula for students, tailoring materials to the needs of each and every student. In preparing for that test, I had to teach a myriad of subjects including reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. I am a quick learner, very personable, and receptive to feedback. If you have any questions or concerns, I more than welcome an e-mail. Thanks for reading and I look forward to helping the students!

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.

Political Science

My major in college was International & Area Studies, which meant that a large portion of my classes were devoted to politics, globalization, and democratic development around the world. An avid follower of the news with a specific fascination for contemporary politics, I am able to use my educational background to take current events and apply critical thought. I am extremely well-versed in current events and have a thorough understanding of political theory as well as politics in practice.

Public Speaking

I was chosen to take over the "superior speaking" course at the school I taught at in Ecuador. In doing so, I developed a curriculum for our most advanced students that included speech writing, debates, and a mock trial. It was also necessary for me to work with students on annunciation, confidence, grammar, as well as vocabulary.
