About Steve


Bio

My degree is in forensic psychology with a focus on abnormal psychology and social deviance. Anyone can relate to a student that may be deemed "normal". However, most conflicts between educator and student stems from a miscommunication or not understanding the students needs/difficulties. My diverse background gives me a unique advantage to understand, adapt to and work with virtually any "personality quirks" that may challenge other educators. as the expression goes, "there is more then one ...

My degree is in forensic psychology with a focus on abnormal psychology and social deviance. Anyone can relate to a student that may be deemed "normal". However, most conflicts between educator and student stems from a miscommunication or not understanding the students needs/difficulties. My diverse background gives me a unique advantage to understand, adapt to and work with virtually any "personality quirks" that may challenge other educators. as the expression goes, "there is more then one way to skin a cat".

In addition to the broader understanding of human nature I achieved through academics, my true strength lies in my passion for helping people in need. If a student has a true desire to learn, I will implement every method at my disposal to ensure they learn what it is that they need to learn and be able to apply that knowledge to real life applications.

When I was in high school, I was an average student at best (largely due to lack of effort). However, I always had an uncanny aptitude for biology. Despite never even opening my textbook unless the teacher called on me to read in class, I was able to effortlessly answer the teachers questions and the lowest grade I ever received was an 80. This included the biology Regent which I scored an 82 on, again never opening my textbook.
In the subject of psychology, I have a similar innate understanding of the subject. Since public school, I was fascinated by human behavior and began conducting my own personal "social experiments" to see how my peers and adults would respond to stimuli. For example, "how would different teachers react when corrected in front of the entire class".
