About Steve

I have retired from the State of California teaching English as a Second Language on all levels from Kindergarten to adults. I am available throughout eastern North Carolina to tutor in English, world history, or college test preparation, having taught all of the above either individually, or on a classroom basis, or both. Thanks for keeping me in your mind.

My experience in teaching to students with special needs was nearly accidental by contrast. In the midst of my academic teaching of at-risk students for Fresno County California, I made the discovery that some students, mostly developmentally delayed students, tended to become attracted to my peripatetic delivery, and thus subsequently could make measurable progress under my tutoring.

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.

Bible Studies

I am an ordained minister and have studied the Greek New Testament formally for two years--informally all of my life. I have led Bible studies and vacation Bible schools for adults and children in several states and one foreign country. I can provide written recommendation upon request

Phonics

I have studied graduate level linguistics on an out of state fellowship at the University of Texas Arlington. Once I published a paper on pre-Spanish language and culture in the Philippines. A kindergarten class I taught one time changed from 100 % non communicative to 100% communicative in only one semester

Public Speaking

My experience in public speaking stretches back to my high school years when I competed nationally in public speaking contests. Although I did not come in first on the national level, I competed successfully at state and regional levels.

Reading

I am an experienced k-12 teacher, currently serving as substitute teacher within the county school district. My intensive study of the English language began when I was a high school senior, and I further my education one or two times a week in the county library. Within the last 30 days I taught English on a multiple day assignment
