About Stephen

I am a New Jersey certified Special Education teacher who has 18 years' experience as an academic tutor, with both children and adults. I have worked at all grade levels, from primary to college. I tutor nearly all academic subjects; my primary focus over the years has been math, since this is an area where many individuals seek the most help. I use a hands-on approach to illustrate problem solving components to the student until he or she demonstrates the ability to perform the task independently.

I like to create a relaxed learning dynamic that fosters a positive experience for students who struggle in the fast-paced classroom environment. Students who work with me very often achieve their goals and recommend me to others.

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.

Social Studies

I am proficient in middle school social studies, having passed the Praxis series middle school social studies examination in 2008 (New Jersey). I have experience teaching ancient civilizations at the middle school level. I have tutored individuals in various social studies courses, usually helping college students write research papers on topics such as the Reconstruction, ancient Greece, and ancient Rome.

Study Skills

I work with a wide variety of subject matter by way of being a special education teacher. I help students with test prep, and inferential reading. I help students look for key words while reading for information in textbooks. I show students how to research in order to prepare written assignments. I help students categorize information. I assist students with practical life skills.
