About Steve


Bio

My teaching and coaching philosophy is that each student has unique strengths that he or she can use to improve their writing and speaking. As a tutor, I help my students of all ages discover their strengths so they can reach their goals in a way that seems natural for each individual student. As a result, my students gain confidence from improving their skills and learn they can succeed on their own. In two words, I *teach and coach* my students to success.

My teaching and coaching philosophy is that each student has unique strengths that he or she can use to improve their writing and speaking. As a tutor, I help my students of all ages discover their strengths so they can reach their goals in a way that seems natural for each individual student. As a result, my students gain confidence from improving their skills and learn they can succeed on their own. In two words, I *teach and coach* my students to success.

My professional background includes award-winning editing, print and online journalism, public relations and marketing communications. I have coached writers of all ages, aptitudes and interests including memoir and book writing, poetry, business communications, public speaking, non-fiction, creative fiction, news reporting, white papers, press releases, essays, report writing, WordPress and blogging.

In addition to writing, editing and coaching, I have training and professional experience in computing, thus I tutor others in basic-to-intermediate computer and internet skills.

My degree is from Cleveland State University, where I majored in Communications with emphasis in the Journalism and Public Relations/Promotional tracks. I have led workshops and been an invited speaker at several Ohio colleges and conferences in the areas of writing, communications and computers.

I make every effort to be flexible with tutoring time. Although I have a 36-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up sessions without a penalty.

Knowledgeable Tutor

Steve is well educated and well and knowledgeable in writing, and unlike some writing teachers, he is certified in writing. He'll charge you for the time you're with them and the time he works for you at his home putting together homework and listen plan, which will be for an hour. If you tell him how much you can afford, he'll never go over it. That's the time he will either have you meet him at Pinero's or a library depending on your location. All in all a decent tutor that is flexible and accommodating for your writing needs.

Helpful Tutor

He tried hard to meet what I need, but he did not understand what I want especially the research questions, which were the most important part of any research. But, I really appreciated him, Thank you.

Tutor responded:

Khlood, I regret that we could not communicate better what your teacher's requirements were than we were able. I'll accept most of the responsibility for this. I believe that if we had at least a few hours before your paper was due, we would have had a 5-star outcome. Nonetheless, thank you for rating me 4-stars. I wish you good fortune as you progress ahead!
