About Stephen

Over the nine years my teaching career spans, I have propelled hundreds of students to success, preparing them for high achievement on various Advanced Placement exams, helping them to earn admission to the college or university of their dreams, and encouraging their intellectual growth with rigorous academic challenges. Even more than I push my students to be their best, I hold myself to the strictest standard of excellence, and I work constantly to improve my teaching ability, adding new pedagogical techniques to my arsenal and polishing up my content expertise so that I can reach every student and support their learning.

I provide tutoring sessions online and in person, and I am available most evenings and weekends. My base rate for all tutoring sessions is $45/hour, but discounts are available for scheduling recurring sessions. Contact me to ask about this.

I look forward to working with you to reach your full academic potential.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Logic

I teach logic as a component of my philosophy courses, which I have been teaching for several years. I studied logic as a core ingredient of the formal methods concentration in my master's degree. Logic is second nature to me at this point.

Political Science

One of my undergraduate majors was political science, and I teach it in effect through the government courses at my school. Those courses include comparative politics, U.S. government, and a seminar on electoral systems.

Public Speaking

I have coached speech and debate for seven years. My team is highly competitive and successful, winning several championships in the state of Ohio and sending many competitors to national contests.

Python

I teach Python programming at my school, and I have for four years. My students finish a semester course with a strong proficiency in coding, armed with many projects they can display in a digital portfolio of their achievements.

Social Studies

I teach psychology, American history, government, philosophy, and interdisciplinary humanities courses at a college preparatory academy. I hold an undergraduate degree with majors in psychology, political science, and philosophy, and a master's degree concentrated on psychology and philosophy. From either my experience or my education I would be considered qualified, and I have both.

Study Skills

Nine full years teaching in some capacity. Nine years of individualized tutoring work. Rigorous study of educational psychology. Leading the professional development of my colleagues in understanding how learning science can help instructional design. Creating and delivering my school's study skills program for new students.
