About Steven

I am an internationally published scientist in the fields of neurobiology (Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis), muscle gene expression (Institute Pasteur, Paris, France) and type I and II diabetes (Copenhagen, Denmark).

I am also a 3D Animator and interactive tutorial designer, with my work appearing on CNN Headline News, BBC, National Geographic Live, PBS and several other educational venues.

Animation is a wonderful way to convey hard-to-understand biological concepts. Thus, I will be sharing with my students animations when needed

I look forward to helping you in the very near future!

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.

Adobe Flash

I have developed education games (physics) using Flash AS2/AS3. Likewise, I had to pass advanced exams for AS3 on other educational / IT staffing resources.

Algebra 1

Algebra I can be a challenge for most students. Using a combination of interactive math applications and practice exams, learning Algebra can be fun!

Algebra 2

Algebra II : I use interactive applications and other media - to help teach various Algebra subjects.

Autodesk Maya

I have been doing Maya for over 12 years. I am certified in Autodesk 3DS Design, 3DS Max, Revits, Autodesk ME, Navision and most 3D related projects. To date, my animation work using these tools has appeared on CNN Headline News, National Geographic Live, PBS and several other venues. I would teach modeling, rigging, lighting and advanced animation techniques (e.g. Real Physics) and the use of Motion Capture Date with Autodesk MoCap. In addition to the basic skill sets, I have worked for over 12 years with Emmy Award Winning PBS director in Los Angeles. Thus, students will learn how I take real screen plays and storyboards into final television broadcast.

Biology

I am an internationally published scientist (Wash. U. Med, St.Louis; Institute Pasteur, Paris; August Krogh Institute, Copenhagen) - in both academic and biotech fields of neurobiology, muscle gene expression, high altitude physiology and diabetes.

Calculus

Calculus can be a bear. I use interactive applications and other tools to help teach some of the more complex concepts.

Chemistry

I have studied inorganic, organic, quantitative analysis. Will use 3D animation to help you get the concepts in which you need help!

Elementary (K-6th)

I develop e-Learning applications to help students learn math concepts. Indeed, I developed the Light & Color Physics Tutorial - to make very complex math subject fun.

Elementary Math

I enjoy teaching basic math. Indeed, I created the interactive Light & Color Tutorial - currently being offered by Rainbow Symphony and Edmund Scientific.

I like using interactive math applications to teach math concepts.

Geometry

Geometry is fun - especially using interactive 3D applications!

Microbiology

I am a molecular biologist who has had to apply both undergraduate and graduate course work to real-life laboratory practices.

Many of the techniques used can be found in the material and method sections of my peer-reviewed publications (eg. Journal of Biochemistry, PNAS, Diabetes, etc).

Pharmacology

I have completed both undergraduate and graduate course work in pharmacology. I have also kept current and have passed continuing medical education courses in psychopharmacology. I have published worked applying what is taught using this course work in peer-reviewed journals.

Physiology

I am molecular biologist that has published work in the fields of neurobiology, muscle gene expression, high altitude physiology and diabetes.

Since leaving the laboratory, I have been heavily involved with bringing these complex subjects to life, via 3D animation and interactive applications.

Combined, I am able to use animation and other tools to help explain complex scientific subject matter to students.

I have recently returned to the USA after doing an environmental animation in Malaysian Borneo.

SAT Math

I can help you prepare for the SAT Math and English.

Trigonometry

I use interactive math applications and multimedia to make learning math fun!
