About Steven


Bio

My love of acting, writing, and all manner of storytelling led to a career teaching English Literature to 12th-graders in several Texas high schools, including Fort Bend Austin and Kempner. Later I went to law school and have worked as an attorney and as an oil and gas landman in the years since. But my love for teaching persists. I teach Energy Law as an adjunct professor at the University of Houston, Downtown. But teaching the law is just not the same as dabbling in the storytelling...

My love of acting, writing, and all manner of storytelling led to a career teaching English Literature to 12th-graders in several Texas high schools, including Fort Bend Austin and Kempner. Later I went to law school and have worked as an attorney and as an oil and gas landman in the years since. But my love for teaching persists. I teach Energy Law as an adjunct professor at the University of Houston, Downtown. But teaching the law is just not the same as dabbling in the storytelling arts. I love to write, but when I am not writing, I love to teach kids to write--and to read well the great works written by others.

I am passionate and compassionate, but I am also realistic: some students share my interest in words, others do not. I enjoy the challenge of helping these kids improve. Last week I tutored an accounting major. She loves numbers; she tolerates words. But we had a great time and I was able to help her better understand the difficult questions posed by her college professor. We found a concrete approach to the abstract, "touchy-feely" perspective of her offbeat professor.

I excelled as an English major. Taught high school English for years. I have had a number of works published and am a polished writer. I love people. I love teaching.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I grew up attending a Baptist church. During college, I worked as a youth minister in two small churches, teaching Bible studies and Sunday School classes to teens. From HBU I received a degree in Christianity and English (a double major). As an adult I have been a Sunday school teacher for both teens and married adults. I have read through the entire Bible at least six times, and study it carefully each time. My beliefs are still best described as Baptist, although members of Bible churches, non-denominational churches, and many other protestant churches would agree with me on many things.
