About Stephen


Bio

I've taught all areas of high school-level English and SAT prep for 16 years, in both the United States and South Korea. I have a love for the subject and for working with young people to improve their skills, their enjoyment, and ultimately their success in school and in business. I have found a blend of respect for the student, respect for the subject, and an informal and friendly approach to be most effective.

I've taught all areas of high school-level English and SAT prep for 16 years, in both the United States and South Korea. I have a love for the subject and for working with young people to improve their skills, their enjoyment, and ultimately their success in school and in business. I have found a blend of respect for the student, respect for the subject, and an informal and friendly approach to be most effective.

What I enjoy most in teaching and tutoring is the "light bulb" moment, when the student suddenly completely understands a point that was once difficult. After the light bulb moment, the student has the topic down cold. You can almost see a brightening come on in his or her eyes, and that's the most rewarding part of the experience for us both.

I have the following academic qualifications and accolades: B.A. English, Cornell University; M.A., English Education, Binghamton University; 99th percentile Verbal SAT score (761) and English subject test (754); Teacher of the Year award, St. Paul Preparatory School (South Korea), 2010-2011. Experience with teaching literature, reading and writing skills, grammar, SAT preparation and test-taking strategies.

I offer in-person and online tutoring sessions to fit your schedule. Please contact me online for more information and/or to set up a free introductory meeting.
