About Steve

I have had a long (30 years) and satisfying career in software development, but I was a math major in college. I helped my two daughters through their math classes, and they were always saying I should be a teacher. While I have enjoyed computer programming, math has always been my first love, and in particular, algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. When I was a graduate student, I was assigned to teach a few classes, and also worked as a Teaching Assistant when I was an undergrad. If you need help in math, I'm sure we can get you through the rough spots. Math can be fun, and as my children found out, it can even be used to solve interesting problems!

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.

ASVAB

The ASVAB is an entrance exam for the military, just as the ACT and SAT are for college. It contains questions to evaluate your understanding of the basic skills necessary to succeed in military training. The battery of questions also helps to point to areas of service where you show the most aptitude, and where you may be most likely to succeed.

I received outstanding scores on the ACT, SAT, GRE, and GMAT, so I know how to succeed on standardized multiple-choice tests. If you are having troubles with the ASVAB, it may be due to a need to improve your knowledge in certain areas, or you may just need to learn the basic strategies of taking such tests. In either case, give me a holler, and I'm sure we can get you the qualifying score you desire.

PSAT

The PSAT is just an introduction to the kind of questions which appear on the SAT. It can be useful as a diagnostic aid in determining areas of strength and weaknness, so you can score well on the SAT. I did very well on the SAT, both in high school, and recently when I retook it for current teaching evaluation. If you have anxiety about an upcoming SAT, the PSAT may be a good test to take, and I'm sure I can help you increase your proficiency and gain confidence in your preparations.

SAT Math

I have always enjoyed taking standardized tests. Probably because I have always done well on them. It helps to have a little test-taking strategy, for those times when the answer is not clear. If you can eliminate one or two wrong choices, then your odds of getting the problem right, go way up. I took the SAT and the two math Achievement tests, and they all turned out pretty well. (775 on the SAT, 800 on both Math I and Math II.)

Very successful!!! — My son David is 16 and having major issues with math (Geometry). Steve came in and started working with David. My son's self esteem was in bad shape, and we were having issues trying to help. David passed his first summer school semester of Geometry with just 1 and half weeks of tutoring. I am very impressed and we will keep working with Steve. ...
