About Steven

I enjoy watching a child go from confusion to understanding. I enjoy when I child asks questions because it shows he or she is engaged. When the light goes off in the child's head and you see they understand the lesson, that's when their desire to want to learn more grows. It's important that with any lesson, the child knows how it applies to everyday life.

I believe every child can learn but it's important that we all understand their learning style. Some are auditory, visual, and/or hands on learners. It's important to know this before the process of teaching begins. I believe I can motivate most any child to want to learn, a motivated child has no limits.

I taught middle school and high school math at a residential school where the students were self contained. My son currently is learning pre-algebra and I tutor him.

I am more then halfway finished with my master's in social studies. I've successfully passed my state exams on the first try in the social studies content. I taught on a provisional license for 3 years and prior was a teacher assist for 16 years. I've very astute in this area and some call me a political junkie.

If you want someone who can make learning fun, take challenging hard topics and make them relatable, I'm at your service. I enjoy opening up a child's mind to the full potential and if one technique doesn't work, I'll try another until one does.
