About Steven

I have over 40 years of classroom experience, from subbing grades K-9 for several years,
11 years full-time 6th Grade Multiple Subject teaching, over 8 years Tutoring privately and with Sylvan Learning Center, and teaching GED to adults.

My favorite subjects to tutor are in two subjects, English (Language Arts) and Math.
In English, I am very proficient in teaching Grammar, Composition, and Literature (especially Poetry).
In Math, I love teaching PreAlgebra, Algebra, Geometry, Basic Math, and Problem Solving/Test Taking.
Check out my Curriculum for Middle Grade and Adult Math Students which is called "Math Soup For Scared
People."

My teaching style is friendly, encouraging, and creative. I promise to start tutoring where the students ARE scholastically, and not
demand that they learn at my rate or in my way. I enjoy answering questions and showing my students HOW to
arrive at good, solid answers to problems of any type.

Thank you for considering me. I look forward to working with you soon!

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 have been a student of the Bible for most of my life, and have read it from cover to cover many times. I am familiar with many books such as Young's and Strong's Analytical Concordances, as well as commentaries such as The Matthew Henry Commentary, and I can easily explain to a student how to use these resources to understand Bible passages. I am still actively reading and researching the Bible, so it will be completely natural for me to model and communicate this process to my student(s).

CBEST

I passed CBEST with flying colors in all subjects, years ago when I was preparing for Multiple-subject 6th Grade position in So. Cal. Since then, I have taught GED to adults for several years here in Nevada. I have even written a curriculum especially for those struggling with Math and Test Prep.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a veteran of more than 40 years spent in public school classrooms, including 11 years teaching multiple subject 6th grade in California. I have tutored and substitute taught for several years in the K-6 grades, and am very comfortable communicating and assisting them in critical thinking and problem solving strategies. Because I struggled with math in elementary grades, I am especially empathetic and encouraging when dealing with students who are frightened of math or have experienced failure in some aspects of that subject.

Public Speaking

I have been speaking before the public for over 40 years now, in settings ranging from intimate groups, to classrooms, and before live audiences of thousands. When I first started, I was extremely shy and nervous, so I can share with students specific techniques I used to become a successful public speaker.

I have over 20 years of experience speaking on Radio and TV, as a Guest, and also as a Show Host.

I passed my Public Speaking classes with high marks at Santa Monica College. I obtained an AA degree from Santa Monica College, and a BA degree from Cal. State Univ. Los Angeles. Both degrees were in English, both were with Honors, and both required ability to communicate with Professor and other students.
