About Steve

Dear Students,

I love one-on-one tutoring because I can give people the boost they need or that second chance that's so valuable. I love working with people from both the U.S. and overseas, but especially those for whom English is a second language. I've taught as a college professor the past five years and have tutored the past 10 years. I specialize in English writing, comprehension, and literature appreciation. Before tutoring, I worked as a news reporter and editor at several New York City-area newspapers.

Although I've focused on the English language, I've helped people like you of all ages, from 5 to 55, with history and math. I come prepared to each session and try to anticipate your questions. I appreciate communication and, so, value honesty in your responses.

My teaching method is student-centered. I will adapt to your needs and determine, collaboratively, a way of learning that works best for you.

Understanding your point of view or goal is crucial. For example, if you've just had a full day of activities and are tired, I can appreciate that.

I look forward to meeting you at your convenience.

Sincerely,
Steve

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have tutored Hispanic students in the Inwood area of Manhattan for two years. I have developed my own "tip sheets" for Spanish-speaking students. Although I do not speak Spanish, I have many references who have made great progress using my "tips" and my style of teaching. I also have tutored many kids K-12 in the Bronx who have had poor reading skills. I would be happy to meet potential students at their convenience and may even offer a free trial lesson, if they choose. Thank you!

Study Skills

I consider myself an excellent test-taker, note-taker, and organizer. To be honest, I've had to be that way, because my memory is not the world's best. However, because of my study skills, I've graduated law school with a J.D. and graduate school with an M.A. (in mass communication). I currently am helping my 11-year-old son organize his homework and stations both here at home and at school.
