For twenty years I was the Department chairman of Science at a High School in West Islip. In addition to supervising the department, I taught Regents Chemistry, honors chemistry and AP Chemistry, Regents and AP Biology, Anatomy/Physiology and Physics. I also taught college biology as an adjunct for St. Johns University.
I moved to Johns Hopkins University where I was an administrator and instructor in the Center for Talented Youth and taught college level Inorganic chemistry. While at Hopkins, I spent the summers of 2003, 2004 and 2005 as a consultant to the Ministry of Education of Singapore and worked on their college chemistry lab programs.
After a severe motor vehicle accident in 2005, I briefly retired but soon became bored. I spent 2008 as an instructor of chemistry at the American University in Cairo Egypt, but returned to the US when political unrest gripped the country. I was prepared to start teaching in a cultural exchange program in china but had a cardiac bypass operation in April of 2012 and was unable to go.
I currently tutor extensively in high school and college chemistry, high school and AP Physics, High school and AP Biology, Earth Science, Forensic Science, Astronomy, Anatomy/Physiology, AP Environmental Science and Marine Science. I have clearance to teach in New York State.
I am on the Admissions Board of my undergraduate Alma Mater, and interview local students applying for admission.
In addition to teaching, I have spent many summers as a US Park Ranger on Fire Island, Cape Cod and Grand Teton National Parks. Currently, I work part time as a Bay Constable in Port Jefferson and spend my winter weekends as an EMT for the National Ski Patrol.
I am married to an Assistant District Attorney and have two married children; a daughter who teaches High School math and a son who is a Paramedic.
I like to spice up my teaching with all my experiences traveling and my hobbies - my horses and exotic sports cars.

Dr. Stephan was a wonderful tutor to help prepare my daughter for her upcoming quiz and other topics that she needed help with!
I would definitely request another lesson if my daughter feels she needs extra help!
Dr. Stephen W. is a rare individual who brings passion and a broad knowledge base to his tutoring sessions. He is relatable and result-oriented. He doesn't watch the clock, but rather is focused on results. My son and I are fortunate to have found him!
