With a masters in Curriculum and Instruction and a love for kids, it would only be natural for me to turn my passion into my career. I was a DC Public Charter School 2nd grade teacher. I am now teaching kindergarten with Craven County Schools and calling New Bern, NC home since we're stationed here til Summer 2021. I have 11 years of tutoring experience and 6 years of teaching experience in a classroom setting.

I can happily tutor in all subjects for elementary students and can tutor in English and Writing for middle school. I would be interested in Science and Math as well, depending on the unit being discussed; however, as a Journalism major, writing is my forte.

While teaching in DC, half my students had an Individual Education Plan (IEP) set in place because of their special needs. Some had a 504 Plan as well. I worked with them in a small group setting in order to strengthen their foundation skills in all subjects. My teaching has yielded great results. I have a lot of experience working with children who come from different backgrounds/ possess different learning styles.

Whether your child has difficulty staying organized, lacks study skills or simply needs to be challenged, I have a positive remedy for all academic concerns and take pride in the results that are achieved.

I am looking forward to working with your child by teaching them that they can do anything they put their mind to.

Throughout elementary school I attended Hebrew School which enabled me to read and write Hebrew. This beauty of this language piqued my curiosity which led me to take 2 years of Hebrew in college to fulfill my foreign language requirement. I was very successful with my coursework and can tutor Hebrew 1 and Hebrew 2 level students, as well as provide bar and bat mitzvah tutoring.

Discrete math is also referred to as Finite Math and encompasses a wide range of non-recurring math concepts(excluding calculus). Through taking and excelling at Finite Math, I have first hand experience of the concepts that are studied and what the professors' expectations are. As a tutor who specializes in Math, I can help students with this tricky subject which is a mixed bag of concepts.

Great help with our 2nd Grader in need of reading and writing development

Steph has been helping our daughter for 5 months and we have seen solid progress during this time. Steph's lessons are well tailored to our 2nd Grader's needs and encouraging for her development.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Stephanie is a very warm and patient tutor for our six year old twins. She's able to shift gears to match a child's needs, she easily connected with our kids, and they are engaged for the entire session. "She is an angel," according to our daughter.
