About Stephon

I am a passionate lifelong learner who loves working with students. I graduated from Binghamton University with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science, and was the commencement speaker at graduation. I'm committed to excellence for myself, and even more committed to helping students meet and surpass their own visions of excellence.

I specialize in teaching Writing, Reading, Social Studies, and Public Speaking. Whether you're really trying to do better in an English class, prepping for the Regents or the SAT, or you're worried about a presentation coming up, I can help you improve dramatically. My goal is to equip students with the skills to not only perform well on a test, but to thrive in any setting.

During the course of my career, I've had the opportunity to experience writing for school newspapers, research papers, solicitation letters, poetry publications and much more. Each of those avenues of writing require a unique approach, and I can help students develop the skills needed to be successful in both writing and analyzing different kinds of text.

As a Political Science major, I spent a great deal of time investigating and debating many of the topics that come up in Social Studies. While I specialize in International Affairs, the research and writing skills can be used for any social studies class!

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you take the first step towards success!

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.

ACT English

On both my SAT and ACT, I scored in the 90th percentile for Critical Reading/English, and I was in the 90th percentile overall.

College Counseling

I worked for Binghamton University's Office of Admissions from 2013-2015, and have a working knowledge of the college admissions process. Much of my tutoring experience (6 years) has come from assisting students with college essays, resumes, and personal statements. My approach with working with students applying to academic institutions is to focus on what excites my clients - what ignites their passion - and use those things to market them as future students.

English

As a Political Science major at Binghamton University, I frequently had to analyze texts and use that information to make arguments. I tutored students during undergrad, and I currently teach Writing and Social Studies.

Government & Politics

I graduated from Binghamton University with a degree in Political Science. I have 3 years of experience tutoring for various political science courses, and have taught 5th grade history as a teacher of record.

I have 5 years of experience tutoring writing and editing essays and presentations, and have taught 5th grade Humanities as a teacher of record. I have proofread/edited academic (MLA, APA, and Chicago style citations) papers, articles, college essays, written speeches, and entries to Newspapers/magazines. I currently run a site dedicated to leadership for young professionals, and craft pieces for the site bi-weekly.

Public Speaking

I have competed in public speaking and spoken word competitions over the last 4 years. In addition, I served as a public speaking consultant from 2012-2014, helping students and professionals hone their stage presence and perfect their presentations. I was also the commencement speaker at Binghamton University's Commencement for the class of 2015.
