About Steven

I have always been a tutor or a teacher in one form or another. I tutored at a Christian school in Orinda, California. I tutored college students at Cal-State, Hayward (now University of California, East-Bay). I was a high school teacher at Valley High School. I taught adult ed algebra at Vo-Tech and calculus at Nellis AFB. I was a visiting professor at UNLV. I tutored one student through high school and into her MBA at UNLV. I help one student prepare for his SAT test. I was a scientific programmer at EG&G and Bechtel, converting raw scientific data into useful information. I did temporary duty at LLNL in Livermore, California and I wrote programs at Barth Electronics in Boulder City that helped engineers see how electrical components failed due to electrostatic discharge.

The thing I like about tutoring more than classroom teaching is that it lets me concentrate all of my attention on one person. The immediate feedback makes the teaching process so much more efficient.

I am very patient and I know my mathematical subjects inside and out. I want my students to understand why they are doing things a particular way but I am not rigid about that. If they want to do things their way and I know that their way will work too, then I encourage them to do so.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree in mathematics. I was a mathematics teacher at Valley High School and a part-time mathematics teacher at UNLV. I am a long-time online contributor to Yahoo Answers (as Pauley Morph) and to Mathematics Stack Exchange.
I have contributed programs to MathWorks, a MatLab website. I was a certified LabVIEW programmer.

I have loved mathematics since I was about 16 years old. It is my profession as well as my hobby. I derive great pleasure in helping students learn mathematics.

Algebra 2

I worked for a company that contracted out to the DOE to work at the test site. My job was data reduction and analysis. I took raw data from experiments and transformed it into useful information. I used calculus, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry every day for 35 years. I then moved to Boulder City where I worked at Barth Electronics. They make machines that characterize how electronic devices fail due to electrostatic shock. I wrote the programs that drove those machines. I am now semi-retired. I am a substitute teacher with the Clark County School District and I am a tutor.

Calculus

I started out as a high school math teacher but then I became a scientific programmer. My job was to convert raw data from experiments into useful information for scientists. I actually used calculus, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry just about every day.
