About Steven

Teaching is in my blood; my parents and brother were/are teachers. While I am not a PhD like my father and brother, I have had considerable success tutoring and mentoring students, ESL learners, colleagues and sales rep associates for more than 30 years. I have also been active in literacy programs since the early 1990s. As a professional writer, I have developed numerous strategies for clear communication and for making complex, esoteric subjects accessible. And as a voracious reader, I have the ability to convey the excitement of discovery that comes with unlocking the secrets of a book or an article, an accomplishment that no other form of communication can yet match. (Although I'm also thoroughly familiar with social media.) Since I appreciate the rewards of reading and writing, I can use those rewards as incentives to help motivate students to get involved with study.

I also have a background in the pharmaceutical industry and in biology, having developed numerous sales training modules and courses for individuals who interact with surgeons, cardiologists, etc. My 11 years with Wyeth Pharmaceuticals (now Pfizer) provided me with key insights into pharmacology and health. Finally, my experiences as an artist (my college major was split between Art and Journalism) help me understand the creative process fairly well. To sum up, I have always been fascinated with teaching and learning.
