About Steven

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.

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.

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.
