About Steven

Hi,

My name is Steve. I am 53, college educated at Salem State (US) and Carleton University (Canada) and worked for 17 years as a "technical writer" in Sweden and the US - two as a consultant for consultancy firms. On the side, I aided scientists in researching and writing articles and books with an emphasis on historical science, and have published in science history on my own. So my resume contains a curious blend of art and science.

I can most likely teach you how to read and write effectively: I obtained a score or 5.0 out of 6 in my analytical reading/writing measure in my graduate record examination.

I am extremely well read and have a 500+ book library, including (as well as fiction from many genres)art history, drama, poetry, military and political history, and many science titles in various areas.

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.

English

I hold a Bachelor of Arts, Combined Honours in English and Russian Literature and Language from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada (1987). I've taught middle school as a teaching assistant in Europe and in high school here in Vermont. For 20 years I was an editor, writer, and linguist, for institutes and corporations, where I developed information techniques for computerized programs. I'm good with kids and will be substitute teaching for Kelly Services this spring on a regular basis.

Reading

Other than passing the WyzAnt reading test which requires a score of at least 80 by a score of 90, I scored 6.0 (out of a possible 6.1) in my Graduate Record Examination test of reading comprehension. (The GRE is a test given to potential graduate school candidates.) I have also written two published books (one by the World Scientific Publishers) in science, and am currently working on a work of historical fiction.

Theater

I studied theatre as part of my English classes in high school and performed regularly in high school productions, one of which won the Moss Hart Award in October, 1973 (honorable mention) for the play Becket: or the Honour of God (by Jean Anouil) as the lead actor (Becket)in the New England Theater Conference. We trumped three professional troupes!

Subsequently, I went on to college at Salem State (Massachusetts) and continued my studies in a more professional environment.

When living abroad in my career, I earned a side living doing television commercials for products as part of my business communications companies.

Thus I can coach you in dramatic technique for stage acting, as well as give you an idea how professional television/webcast acting is done!
