About Stefan


Bio

If you're having trouble in your math or science class, I would love to help you get back on your feet. School can be way more fun when you feel you're understanding what's going on in class and you can choose to participate. Homework will no longer feel like torture because you can do it quickly and easily. Or maybe you are already doing well, and you want to improve your grade from a B+ to an A? Good for you! I can help you do that too.

If you're having trouble in your math or science class, I would love to help you get back on your feet. School can be way more fun when you feel you're understanding what's going on in class and you can choose to participate. Homework will no longer feel like torture because you can do it quickly and easily. Or maybe you are already doing well, and you want to improve your grade from a B+ to an A? Good for you! I can help you do that too.

Throughout my many years of school I always helped and tutored other students as I went along - my little brother, my friends, classmates, etc. - and I really enjoyed it. Now that I'm doing it officially I find it comes very naturally to me - probably because of all that experience I gained over the years of doing it more casually. I love the one-on-one interaction that tutoring provides because it's fun to uncover each student's unique hang-ups and then work with him or her to clear them up. I'm great at finding the problem areas quickly so we can spend our time effectively instead of running around in circles trying to figure out what's missing.

Helping the student stay motivated by keeping it fun and interesting is another focus of mine - often being "stumped" is just a sign of a negative mindset: "I don't get it" or "it's just too hard" are attitudes I love to chase away! I find there's usually just a little piece missing in the student's picture of the subject matter, and not that the student can't understand at all what is going on. I am very good at actively encouraging and motivating the student to push through being "stuck".

In terms of my own education, I've been through a lot of school! I earned my first Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2002, and a second when I graduated Cum Laude in Biology from Millersville University in 2009. I am also a native German speaker, so I can help you with that too if you need it.

I look forward to working with you!

Nice Tutor

Stefan taught me physics. I liked that he was patient and helpful. Stefan has helped me accomplish work and force. He can help me pass my physics class for this semester.

D, 14 lessons with Stefan

Helpful and patient!

Stefan was helpful and patient with me. He helped me to understand how to make sense of physics problems. He also taught me what the formulas actually meant. They were just letters and numbers before.

Amanda, 2 lessons with Stefan

Great teacher!

Whenever working on physics homework, my daughter usually appears nervous and anxious, but not after class this time. She said Mr Stefan was very patient walking her through the problems, and explained the steps thoroughly. In addition, Mr Stefan reached out us before the class, suggested us to prepare the problems in advance so can use the tutoring more efficiently.

Great teacher, very patient

Stefan helped my son review for his physics test. He explained things in a way my sons teacher has not - easier to understand. Stefan gave him confidence and made the review fun

Julie, 5 lessons with Stefan

Thorough

Stefan is helping my son with AP physics and precalculus. He makes sure that he is involved in and understanding the material at every point. He has found it very helpful.

Susan, 13 lessons with Stefan

Very nice and understanding tutor

When tutoring with Stefan it feels more like you are learning with another student over having a professor talking at you. Stefan is a very knowledgeable tutor and he is patient with you to make sure you understand the information.

Kevin, 4 lessons with Stefan

Excellent tutor

Stefan is helping my daughter with Physics. She says he is brilliant, knows all the formulas, his explanations are very clear and has great teaching skills. We strongly recommend him.

Fanny, 12 lessons with Stefan

Great Tutor!

Stefan helped me prepare for a college level Physics mid-term exam. I will definitely use Stefan again in the future for other Physics exams.

Elsie, 3 lessons with Stefan

Understanding, great at helping me understand

Stefan helped me understand some things that I didn't understand in class. He also helped me with understanding parallel lines better.
