About Steven

I am a certified New York State Physics teacher, with a credential in Adolescent Education. I recently graduated from Union Graduate College, where I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am an Eagle Scout and graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), where I earned my Master of Science in Materials Engineering. I also earned my B.S. from RPI graduating Cum Laude. As an undergraduate I was a member of the Materials Science honors society, Alpha Sigma Mu and a brother of Alpha Phi Omega, a community service fraternity. As an engineer, my curriculum was heavy in math and sciences.

Being a recent student and current teacher, I believe that I offer a unique perspective compared to "professional" tutors. As a student, I am able to relate to other students and determine what makes a subject or concept difficult. I understand what methods of conveying a concept seem to be confusing and ineffective on the receiving end and frequent discussion with other students about class materials also enables me to find many different ways to explain the same concept. My experience as a TA has taught me to effectively and confidently communicate in a way that seems to inspire a fundamental understanding. Feedback from students and parents has been highly positive.

I am an excellent fit with advanced mathematics or science high school student, or college undergrad.

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.

Algebra 1

As an engineer and physics teacher I use algebra every day. In high school I earned a 97% on the regents, and am very proficient. Additionally, I have achieved great success in helping other through Algebra tutoring for many years.

Calculus

As a physics teacher and engineer I frequently needed to derive formulas using calculus. I am very proficient, having earned an A in my college class, and a 5 on the Calculus AP exam.

I have tutored many students in this subject and have helped them to fully comprehend the subject.

Differential Equations

Earning my M.S. in engineering required the frequent use of mathematics at this level. In my college differential equations course I earned an A and was very proficient in the subject matter. As a tutor I have been successful in all areas I have taught.

Physics

I am currently a NYS certified Physics teacher, and this is my full time profession. My background in engineering gives me additional qualifications because I know understand the subject at a deeper level than is required an most classes.

Regents

Growing up in New York, I was subjected to Regents examinations many times. As a result I am familiar and proficient with the style of these examinations.

As an engineer, I am still highly qualified in the areas of math and science.

Here is a list of the Regents material I am comfortable covering as well as the scores I received on the exams in High School.

Math:
Course 1 - 97
Course 2 - 97
Course 3 - 99

These courses cover Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry. They are now taught as Mathematics A and B.

Science:
Chemistry - 94
Physics - 96
