About Steven

I believe patience and understanding each child's learning style are important to help a student achieve academically. I taught high school government and history in Council Bluffs, Iowa, then middle school social studies in Omaha Public Schools in Omaha, Nebraska. For three years, I substitute taught--mostly in special education classrooms-where I could provide more individualized learning for students. I believe I can provide excellent tutoring for students in all general subject matters. I have done tutoring for a private company in Omaha since 2004. I have also earned 10 hours of credit toward a master's degree and am planning to become endorsed in special education.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have tutored students with ADHD as a private tutor with Club Z tutoring. I have substitute taught extensively in Omaha Public schools in Omaha, Nebraska with students diagnosed with ADHD. As a regular education classroom social studies teacher, I worked daily with students diagnosed with ADHD and taking Ritalin.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold teaching licenses in Illinois and Nebraska. Both states allow a certified teacher to sub all grades K-12. While I was a sub in Omaha Public Schools I subbed frequently at Hartman Elementary-often as librarian and computer applications class. In these classes I worked with all students in grades K-6 and was requested by the school as a sub in this position often during 2009-2010 school year. I would occasionally sub in regular classrooms, too. I believe this experience qualifies me to tutor elementary students grades K-6. Thank you. Steve J.

Social Studies

I have a Nebraska and Illinois teaching certificate endorsed in Social Sciences. I have a political science degree and history minor and have taught social studies classes full time for 3 years in Iowa and Nebraska.

Study Skills

I taught a middle school study skills class as a long term substitute in Omaha Public Schools. Some of the curriculum covered was basic left/right brain function, phonetics, reading comprehension skills, spelling, and memory aids such as mnemonic devices. I also covered a daily study skills classroom for 1 period / day when I taught full time. This was an individually guided study skills room where I worked 1 on 1 with students assigned to the room that day.
