About Steven

Hello Parents, I am Here to Help Your student Succeed!

I have enjoyed sharing my passion for learning and developing a sound mind AND body with students of all ages for many years.

As an undergraduate geography student, I worked as a cartographer with map and atlas publisher Hammond Inc. I also worked as a student intern with the City of Valparaiso (Indiana) municipal planning dept. My role as an lifelong student and educator has led me to become a Paraprofessional through Source4Teachers and tutor where I now help students JUST LIKE YOURS enjoy the learning process and reach their scholastic and fitness potential!

In addition to continuing in my activities as a fitness and nutrition coach, my eventual goal is to become a certified teacher.

GEOGRAPHY/SOCIAL STUDIES
Within the scope of the learning process, I first place an emphasis on establishing organized and structured study skills within the framework of developing a focused progress plan for each session. My goal is to keep the student challenged with weekly continuing education materials and homework assignments while introducing new concepts at a pace that is in keeping with the student's abilities. All of my tutoring students receive periodic reviews and progress reports.

WEIGHT LOSS and PRESIDENTS CHALLENGE YOUTH FITNESS PROGRAM
As a certified fitness professional, my youth fitness, weight loss and sports specific coaching students also participate in periodic re-assessments and goal setting activities. I especially welcome inquiries as to how I can help your student shed pounds and improve their body self image while also improving their strength and stamina to prepare for the Presidents Challenge Youth Fitness Program offered at many schools.

Please note that I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy. However, I do try to be as flexible as possible, including the scheduling of makeup sessions.

In addition, I encourage that students setup a quiet and comfortable space at home free of distractions for their academic studies with me. However, I am also fine with meeting at a local library if that is more convenient for a student. I am available to conduct youth fitness sessions at a students home (indoors/outdoors, including aqua fitness in a pool) or meet at a local park or high school track.

I look forward to helping YOUR STUDENT achieve their scholastic, weight loss and youth physical fitness goals!

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.

Bodybuilding

As a strength & conditioning coach and certified personal trainer, I have had an active interest in natural body building for the past 20 years. I have coached several men/women to compete in various state and national body building competitions. I placed 4th in the masters division of the 2010 NGA NJ State Body Building championships and I am currently preparing for my next competition for late 2015.

Fitness

I have been working as a certified fitness professional since 1993 and have coached hundreds of individuals age six through 92 years to achieve their fitness, sports specific and wellness goals. I currently offer fitness training through the YMCA and as an independent coach.

Geography

I hold a BA degree in Geography from Valparaiso University. Also upon graduation, I worked for five years as a geographer/cartographer for Hammond Inc., a NJ based map and atlas publisher. Afterwards, I worked for a mid-size NJ law firm in their environmental law dept. and completed many mapping and geographical statistics client projects.

Social Studies

I hold a B.A. in Geography/Urban Planning/Cartography. I worked as a Lab Tech/Student Aide as an undergraduate student for Geomorphology and Climatology programs.

I regularly watch related programming on the American Heros, National Geographic and PBS television channels.

I am currently working toward my NJ certification as a substitute teacher through Source4Teachers. Completion date, May 1, 2015.

Track & Field

I have coached Cross Country/Track & Field on the Middle School and High School levels. As an Asst. Coach, my Boys/Girls JV Track & Field teams won the county title in three consecutive years.
I have also officiated both of these sports at the high school level through the NJSIAA. I competed at the Varsity level in both sports at the high school and NCAA levels. I also coached a male/female group of runners to a 1st Place Finish at the 2002 NJ Marathon. And, I am also a 1998 finisher of the Boston Marathon.

World History

I am currently approved for tutoring in World and American History, Geography and Social Studies. The study of European history from the Roman Empire to the present is a personal favorite.
