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 are in bold.

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.
