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!

Active and engaging tutor

Encouraging and responsive to questions. Patient, prepared, and punctual. Builds on students’ strengths and works to improve their weaknesses. Both my children have benefited from his expertise.

Algebra 1

Last week was our first time meeting Stefan. He was punctual, honest and nice. He was helping my son working on some Algebra 1 worksheets. We will schedule another lesson with Stefan this week to work on an upcoming mid term exam.

Excellent Tutor

Stefan was quick to reply and confirm an appointment. Showed up on time and did an excellent job tutoring my son on his HS Algebra 2. I would not hesitate to contact him again and highly recommend.

Patient and Productive

Stephan has been working with my daughter to prepare for SAT. He has been very encouraging and building her confidence in math. Math is not her strong subject, but Stephan has been working methodically to help her improve and not feel overwhelmed by problems. he is very kind, helpful and patient.

Patient tutor - Stefan helps dissolve apprehension w/ the subject & new tutor

He was able to help my Aspie embrace his need for his class and Stefan put him at ease right away - for me, that's a great plus. He had state-of-the-art teaching implements and gave example after example, establishing a very pleasant learning experience for my son

Merci, 1 lesson with Stefan

Stefan has made a difference after just one lesson!

Stefan assisted with phase changes and temperatures and intermolecular forces. Stefan is a very bright and expressive tutor, and he helps in very difficult subjects, making even Honors Chemistry fun to learn. My son is more confident and is understanding concepts enough to explain them to classmates - Thanks to Stefan!

Knowledgeable and calm

First session went well and we are off to a great start in increasing understanding of AP Chem! Looking forward to the next session. Stefan is calm in his approach and patient when teaching new concepts.

3 years with Stefan as a College Student

As a college student working with Stefan for three years, and seeking to go to the next level of academic performance, I can without reservation that Stefan has been a large part of my development. Stefan proved to be a reliable asset to my academic journey, first, through his flexibility. He was willing to work around my busy schedule as a student and when I had an internship. He proved to be a coach through any motivational slumps, encouraging me through hard academic materials in college level calculus, chemistry, biology, physics, and major related materials when at times I felt the need to give up or was frustrated with hard classes. Life can be demanding with tough academics, and, with hard courses, he proved to be a coach, and a tutor. Frankly, Stefan has high social I.Q, as well as a deep knowledge of materials that we worked though. I would recommend him for any college student, as well as any student willing, and with the desire, to either move from a passing grade or to achieve grades that are acceptable for elite graduate schooling. As a recent graduate, Stefan has helped me to the achieve the grades necessary for the next level of schooling, and I know he can help you, too.

Very Helpful, Really Knew Business Calculus For College

Stefan worked with my nephew all summer on business calculus for college and was very helpful. He was able to cover almost the entire semester in lessons.
