Lafayette College, Easton, PA (Chemistry)
Iowa State University (PhD)
I stress the learning of problem-solving skills above and beyond just learning facts. If you are willing to try and are open to new approaches, I can help you develop skills that can last a lifetime.
I have a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry and have many years of industry experience using both analytical and organic chemistry. In high school I had some great math and science teachers who gave me knowledge that helped me during my college years and throughout a productive career. If you need help in those subjects and are willing to work hard, then I am here for you. I stress the learning of problem-solving skills above and beyond just learning facts. If you are willing to try and are open to new approaches, I can help you develop skills that can last a lifetime.

My daughter loves her lessons with Steve. She struggled with chemistry at school because their teacher did not explain material well, and it was the first time ever she complained about the school teacher and wanted to transfer out of class. Since school would not allow transfers from pre-AP classes we looked online for a tutor, and were lucky to find Steve. After only 2 lessons my daughter is now happy and told me with surprise "now I actually get it!". Makes me very happy and also she said that the every time Steve explains something to her she understands - "gets it" - from the very first time. Hopefully she will like chemistry now! She also recommended Steve to her friend and her friend should be getting in touch soon.
Steve significantly increased my daughter's confidence and grades in analytical chemistry (college level). It is not a subject many people are willing to take on.
My son had his first lesson with Steve Tony and I can already tell my son has a better understanding of his assignment. We will definately be seeing Steve again.
Steve is a wonderful tutor and I highly recommend him. He is extremely knowledegable and has a very calming disposition. We will definatly use him again to help our daughter w Chemistry!!
Steve is an awesome tutor. He arrived early and was very personable. He worked with my son for 1 hour on various algebraic topics and explained the information in easy to understand language. When the session was over he gave me an overview of the session and a recommendation for how to move forward. I will definitely hire him again.
It's been too long since I've been acquainted with Geometry, but my son was very excited after Steve left throwing around a bunch of lingo that I vaguely remember. Very pleased.
Going over Algebra with me after years of being out school and is helping me to understand what I have forgot in those years.
Steve began today working with my daughter on chemistry. My daughter felt encouraged and had confidence she would understand chemistry and pass her final exam! We plan to continue working with Steve for the remaining course work!! He's wonderful and explains the subject where my daughter can understand!
Steve has really helped my daughter bring up her pre-cal grade. He told me we will get her up to an "A".
I have to say when he told that i was a little reluctant, but in just a short time my daughters grade has increased dramatically.
My son was able to bring up his grade in chemistry because of Steve. He is patient and able to explain the subject in a manner that my son understood the lesson. Always on time.
Steve arrived on time and had a detailed plan of what to explain to me, as well as hand outs to give. His organization made the learning process move very smoothly. Steve has given me a stronger grasp onto why there is a process to follow when working with equations.
Steve is a GREAT tutor. Explained complex problems really well. We went over Logarithmic Equations, Exponential Functions, Inverses of Logarithms. I have received a better understanding. I also have homework from my tutor. He wants me to get the all the concepts. Great Tutor!
He appears to really enjoy teaching/sharing the "secrets" to solving math to my son. He made the learning fun and that held my son's attention. I think his teaching style is very laid back but that allowed my son to take a more proactive attitude and be "involved" in the learning. Very good experience. I am very glad Steve agreed to tutor our son. Steve is helping build my son's strength and confidence in math.
Steve has done a great job helping our daughter with math. After only a few sessions, we already seeing improvements in her grades.
Steve is coming three days this week to prepare our daughter for her final. Thanks for putting in the extra time.
Thank you for helping Kelsey prepare for her final exam.
Good tutor. Really knows his material! It had been over ten years since I have taken a math class. With Steve's help, I made an "A" in college Algebra.
Steve is very patient. He takes the time to listen to tasks at hand and breaks it down so well that I see my daughter's confidence building up!
I returned to college to complete my Bachelor’s degree after being out of school for 30 years. Steve was able to help me make an A in my College Algebra classes. He is a miracle worker. Really patient.
Thanks to Steve's help I finished my last semester with an A in Intro to Algebra. I'm taking Algebra this summer and I already started working with Steve. Going for an A again and more knowledge! So excited!
My son loves Mr. Steve! He is patient and explains the WHY? that he has to know! Wonderful person. Don't know what we would do without him!!!
Steve is a great tutor. He really knew the material. We had several tutors before him that didn't know the material. He is definitely an excellent chemistry tutor.
Steve C. helped me this last Summer with a class at LSU that I had struggled with in the past. Analytical Chemistry is not an everyday subject that is easy to learn or tutor. He was very thorough with his explanations and reviewed numerous equations with me. Due to working part time, I was limited to the time that he could sit with me.
I would HIGHLY recommend Steve C. as a tutor for your son or daughter. If he is that great with tutoring such a difficult subject (and by the way, I passed with a B), then please feel confident that he will be able to instruct your student with the same care, patience and respect he gave me.
Steve is very patient and know how to communicate his knowledge to the kids. My son is learning a lot with him every lesson he is at.
Steve took time to understand the gaps in my son's knowledge, and carefully explained concepts that my son had only partially learned. He then went on, through careful explanation and problem solving, to reinforce the current lessons that my son is being taught, and to expand the boundaries of his learning by introducing him to related concepts. Quite satisfied with this lesson, and my son looks forward to working with Steve again.
Steve tutored my son last night for just 45 minutes and my son made a 95 on his science quiz! I will use him again for additional tutoring!
My son is very pleased with Steve's help. Steve is very well prepared and has a wonderful teaching style. We look forward to continued improvement with his help! Awesome tutor!
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.
