Knowledgeable, patient, compassionate, friendly, understanding and willing to teach on my level of understanding.

Steven was really knowledgeable about many aspects of my courses, and those he were not familiar with, he was honest enough to say so. I appreciate him and cant wait to get deeper into the courses. I feel as though he will be a great asset to my success.
