About Stephanie


Bio

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.

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.

I have a B.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry and have been tutoring/teaching chemistry for 14 years. I was an instructor of general chemistry at Penn State University for several years before moving to Philadelphia. Over the years, I have garnered many general chemistry textbooks, exam question databanks and homework problems.

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

10 Stars!!

I was hesitant about online tutoring but my tutoring experience with Stephanie was better than any in person help I’ve had thus far. She is so knowledgeable and incredibly patient with me, and does an excellent job of simplifying concepts and problems as she walks me through them. She also saves our whiteboard sessions so I can print them out and work back through problems on my own. I would give her 10 stars if I could!

Knowledgeable and patient

Stephanie was really patient and did a great job of helping me out, now I feel confident about my upcoming exam. I needed help with understanding atomic numbers for a biology test and she did just that.

Travis, 1 lesson with Stephanie

Knowledgeable patient tutor

Stephanie was enlisted to help with a summer AP chemistry assignment due on the first day of school. Stephanie was great. She guided my daughter through the assignment giving explanations when needed and extracting the knowledge she already had. She was patient, thorough, attentive, and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend Stephanie and enlist her help throughout the year.

Best tutor I have ever had!

I am a student who attends University of Houston. I always struggled with chemistry and found it almost impossible to do. Stephanie broke down chemistry in a way that made it very easy to understand. When I wouldn't understand something she would try to explain it in different ways and was very patient. She would work out each problem with me step by step , which was very helpful when I needed to review it again for the test. She would always make time out of her day to tutor me even if she was busy. She is very kind and truly cares. She makes sure that you understand something completely before she moves on to the next topic. Due to her help I ended up doing very well in the class. 10/10 I would recommend her!

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!

Do you struggle with chemistry and feel like you're falling behind in class? Are you stuck on homework questions or feel unprepared for the next exam? Do you need simpler explanations - someone to break down each concept for you in an understandable way without feeling judged? Counting down the days before your final exams and feeling desperate? If you're any of the above, you NEED to contact Stephanie and set up a tutoring routine with her right away. I took General Chemistry II this past semester and as someone who is averse to the sciences, I desperately needed a tutor who could walk through each concept with me, explain how to tackle certain kinds of problems, patiently wait as I try to solve some on my own and constructively critique where I went wrong, have legible whiteboard handwriting, and not scam me for my money. Stephanie provided all this and more. She is amazing in her tutoring skills - she's fun to work with, she's ALWAYS prepared, and she makes herself very accessible! My only complaint is that she doesn't specialize in organic chemistry so now I am back to the drawing board. Will miss Stephanie and would highly recommend her to everyone!

Very knowledgeable about Chemistry

My daughter said she is so good, very helpful about her lab project. We would like her to be the tutor for my daughter. Very responsible as well the lesson went to 11:30 pm.

just a very good tutor

It's not easy to combine being so capable and so patient, but Stephanie seems to do it with ease, she's a real godsend

Great Presentation

My daughter really loved Stephanie's presentation. She was very patient and attentive to my daughter's needs. We will definitely be recommending her and will be repeat customers. Very satisfied!

Vinnsja, 1 lesson with Stephanie

Knowledgeable and efficient

Stephanie is by far the best tutor I’ve worked with for chemistry. She understood what I needed help with and made sure that I understood what we were working on in its entirety. I felt that we were able to cover material in a quick and effective manner as well. I would definitely recommend! She has a very sweet disposition which made me feel comfortable.

Anne Marie , 5 lessons with Stephanie

Great tutor!

Stephanie breaks my whole lesson down into simpler explanations that really help me learn the material! She basically teaches the entire lesson and I guarantee you won’t be lost on the lesson after working with her. I have also been alot more confident in my tests.
