I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry and have been tutoring/teaching chemistry for over 15 years. I was an instructor of general chemistry at Penn State University for several years before moving to Philadelphia. Since then, I have worked with students at UPenn, Temple, Drexel and Jefferson Universities in addition to students at local high schools. I have also used the online Wyzant whiteboard platform to work with students across the U.S. from universities such as Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Cal Poly, Cornell, and Northwestern. I have also worked with high school students taking regular, honors, IB, and AP chemistry. Over the years, I have garnered most general chemistry textbooks, as well as many exam questions and homework problems.

I love helping students learn and really understand the material. I make analogies and relate concepts to everyday life whenever possible. I have a sense of humor and always try to make learning fun. I love working one-on-one with students because I can see what concepts/topics are not understood and help build a strong foundation before moving on to harder topics.

Contact me if you're ready to learn and have fun at the same time!

Finally confident in Chemistry

Stephanie really help succeed this semester. Especially with having to do chemistry class remote because of covid-19. I have gain a new level of understanding for chemistry. I am much more confident then I was in the beginning of the semester. Thank you so much Stephanie.

Knowledgeable and Fun Tutor

Stephanie is a fun and patient tutor. I tend to get lost very easily and she always helped me find my way back to the work. I always looked forward to our sessions because they were fun and very productive. I was failing AP Chem until she came along and now I am passing. I am so glad I found her!

Provides clarity and is patient

Stephanie helped me by drawing pictures of my chemistry problems to help me understand the problems better. She was clear and explain in detail how to solve Chemistry problems.

The teacher that I always would have liked to have

Stephanie is not only helping with your homework, she will explain all your "why" questions until everything is crystal clear, if all teachers were like Stephanie, the world would be a much better place!

Great AP Chemistry Tutor

Stephanie was great and very communicative. Answered my daughter’s questions and helped her to feel confident before taking her APChemistry exam. She answered my request immediately and helped my daughter within 24 hours of me contacting her. Would recommend her and use her stein.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

My daughter is taking AP Chem, and having trouble understanding the concepts. I found Stephanie, and in short-time notice we agreed on a schedule for an online lesson. I sent her copies of the handouts and the themes of the chapter they should review. Next day in the morning, they spent two hours reviewing everything, and my daughter was very happy to have understood the material. The communication with Stephanie is very easy, her online classroom is clear, and she certainly knows the subject. It's the first time we do online tutoring, and it worked fantastically thanks to Stephanie. We will continue working with her for the long AP Chem year! Thanks!!!

Couldn't have asked for a better tutor.

I am an older adult learner who needed to study for a chemistry placement exam for my local community college. I hadn’t taken chemistry since high school which is too long ago to even mention so we had to start from the beginning. We worked every other day and then every day for six weeks and she was consistently clear with her instruction. She was able to explain things in a way that I understood them and patiently reviewed concepts, in some cases many times, until I “got it.” She purchased the book the school recommended as a study aid and was flexible with meeting times including Saturday and Sunday. I couldn’t have asked for a better tutor. I recommend Stephanie unconditionally and want to thank her for all of her help with this major endeavor.

Amazing Teacher

Stephanie is amazing at breaking very difficult problems into fundamental steps and concepts. She is also very patient and revisits older topics, reviewing, and rebuilding with repetition. Her notes are phenomenal! I hope to emulate her note-taking and comprehension strategies in my own study going forward. Strongly recommend!

Very knowledgeable and knows how to teach!!!

Stephanie helped my daughter in AP Chemistry. She had 16 sessions with Stephanie. Stephanie has a way of explaining which helped my daughter understand the nuances of lessons especially IMFs, molecular geometry and acids&bases among other topics. She also helped my daughter prepare for the National Chemistry Olympiad. Stephanie is very patient and goes through the contents and problems so well, that my daughter has a smile on her lips after the sessions end. She helped my daughter take off a lot of stress on this subject. Stephanie is a gem!
