About Steve


Bio

I have been a teacher an a tutor and, at all grade levels, for over 35 years. I started teaching English and went for my Master's degree to become a Reading Specialist. I worked with Reading and Literacy at the Elementary level in the Cleveland Schools. During that time, I was awarded with the Ohio Reads Award. I went on to teaching high school English, with the focus on Literature, Writing and Comprehension for the Ohio Graduation Test. Many of my students came from different countries,...

I have been a teacher an a tutor and, at all grade levels, for over 35 years. I started teaching English and went for my Master's degree to become a Reading Specialist. I worked with Reading and Literacy at the Elementary level in the Cleveland Schools. During that time, I was awarded with the Ohio Reads Award. I went on to teaching high school English, with the focus on Literature, Writing and Comprehension for the Ohio Graduation Test. Many of my students came from different countries, and although I am not an ESL teacher, I helped those students to be able to manage and perform well in my English classes.

As a tutor, my greatest professional reward has been seeing my students' confidence increase in their language abilities. I am currently tutoring students with special needs and find joy in helping the students grow. I have seen an increase in skill level in Reading, Writing and Literature.

I am an outstanding English tutor because in addition to improving students' skills, I provide positive support for their efforts and increase their confidence. It is wonderful to see students' start their love of reading and understanding. I have been an ACT prep tutor for all areas of English over the years at the high school level.

Reading and writing go hand in hand. Developing students' skills in these areas will improve their English proficiency, I have stayed in touch with many of my students. I have one student in Law School, others who have become teachers themselves and students who have invited me to their milestones.
