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!

Knowledgeable and experienced

Stefan helped my son stay engaged and comfortable with the chapter 2 (Atoms) concept. Caleb was well prepared and could get over the chapter exam with confidence.

Precalculus/physics

Stefan was very helpful with my daughter’s precalculus questions and great that he’s knowledgeable in different subjects. We will be booking with him in the future

Great tutor! Very informative and super patient!

Stefan was great at explaining the topics I was confused about in physics! Will definitely be going to him for help again :) Helped me understand specific formulas I was confused about and helped do practice problems from past assignments.

Amazing Chemistry Tutor

Stefan is a great chemistry tutor! I’m taking CHEM 1212K (Principles if Chem I - 2nd Semester) in college, and Stefan has really broken down the concepts that I don’t understand into more manageable chunks. He’s super knowledgeable about Chemistry in general, and I’d for sure recommend him to others.

Best physics tutor on the app!

Stefan is hands down the best tutor on this app, I had a horrible physics professor and literally would have failed the class without his help. It was all thanks to his excellent teaching skills and ability to provide systematic, easy-to-understand approaches to difficult problems that I ended up getting an A. I actually recommended him to my classmate who ended up using him for physics help as well and we both agreed that be was one of the best tutors we’ve ever had. I’ll definitely be using him again next semester. Thank you Stefan for making physics semi-enjoyable!!!

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.

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.

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
