I love teaching.

I am a certified New York State Physics teacher, with a credential in Adolescent Education. I graduated from Union Graduate College, where I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am an Eagle Scout and graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), where I earned my Master of Science in Materials Engineering. I also earned my B.S. from RPI graduating Cum Laude. As an undergraduate I was a member of the Materials Science honors society, Alpha Sigma Mu and a brother of Alpha Phi Omega, a community service fraternity. As an engineer, my curriculum was heavy in math and sciences.

I am a tenured teacher and have been teaching Physics for 4 years at the high school level. I develop great and comfortable relationships with students, and teach through making students develop answers to their own questions. Any "teacher" can spout knowledge. That isn't helpful. I focus on trying to get the students to think through problems and use their prior knowledge to work one step at a time to finding a solution.

I am an excellent fit with advanced mathematics or science high school student, or college undergrad.

Regents,

Regents

Growing up in New York, I was subjected to Regents examinations many times. As a result I am familiar and proficient with the style of these examinations. As an engineer, I am still highly qualified in the areas of math and science. Here is a list of the Regents material I am comfortable covering as well as the scores I received on the exams in High School. Math: Course 1 - 97 Course 2 - 97 Course 3 - 99 These courses cover Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry. They are now taught as Mathematics A and B. Science: Chemistry - 94 Physics - 96

Great tutor, Extremely Satisfied

Steven was a great calculus tutor. He was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and patient with my concerns. I was having particular difficulty with a certain section of Calculus BC and Steven was able to essentially teach me the material. I will definitely use Steven again!
