I have been tutoring all ages (4th grade through adult) for almost eight years now. I have familiarity with the IB Math and Chemistry programs having successfully tutored students at Skyline HS. I specialize in giving struggling students the skills to be successful in the classroom.

By far, my favorite subjects are math and science, but I love to show the tricks for test taking for ASVAB, TEAS, MCAT, Compass / Accuplacer / WAMAP placement tests, new SAT and ACT exam. I specialize in identifying the roadblocks to your success and getting you to your goal. I can also help students understand their style of learning and assist with study skills.

My philosophy in tutoring is to build confidence and academic proficiency so I can release the student.

I do tutor students who contract with me directly as well so please understand that the hours of availability on Wyzant give general tutoring work hours. Please contact me for current session dates and times that are open for new students!

I look forward to working with you and seeing you succeed.

Best regards,
Stephanie

Business

I worked for Microsoft, Safeco and PACCAR from 1994-2008. My primary role during that time was as a project manager, program manager, and project consultant for the PMO. As a part of my job, I had to create documents that outlined a project, its resource needs, risks, and managed the schedule plus the resources and issues. I understand ROI (return on investment) and have helped train many project managers, directors and senior directors in project management as well as putting technical terms (from IT) into basic business language to communicate to the customers the benefits and costs of completing a project or program. I also helped create and run a piano tuning business for my husband including doing the marketing and accounting books. I was the President of the Seattle Philharmonic board of trustees from 1993-1995 rebuilding the business side of the orchestra including writing and receiving grant monies for new programs that benefited the needy in our community.

As a project manager for over 12 years, MS Project was my tracking tool of choice. I could write macros, print out different reports depending on my audience and of course, use it to capture all information that I needed regarding time and budget on my project.

I have been a soccer coach with Covington Community sports since 2008. When I was young, I played select soccer for 6 years before I had a knee injury which took me out of the game.

I encourage while giving the players new opportunities to try skills in teamwork and individual soccer skills as well.

Great Teacher!

Thank you, Stephanie! Olivia enjoys your time together and continually tells me that tutoring is beneficial. She understands her math so much better after going over the concepts with you.

Amy, 21 lessons with Stephanie

A great tutor!

Stephanie is a caring and very positive tutor. My older son started seeing her for his IB Extended Essay last summer. The due for the essay was in January, but he played football and swam, so he needed to start early. Stephanie quickly saw he needed to learn how to write and made a plan for him. She was very flexible with his busy football schedule and found time for him. After the essay, he continued to see her for his collage essays, SAT, and school homework. She is very knowledgeable for all area! I wished I found her earlier when he was struggling with Calculus. So, now, my younger son (freshman), who has been struggling with math, started meeting with her. I did not think he would continue to see her because of his “I do not want to study” attitude. However, he has never complained meeting with her every week. In fact, he now wants to do better and wants to go to college. I am very thankful to Stephanie being patient with him. She tutors math, science, and writing for him. On the way home after each lesson, he talks about how good grades he wants to attain. He does not give up easily as he used to. I can tell she gives him positive thoughts. His grades went up this semester, 5 As and 1 B! I am happy to see him talking about his grades proudly. Thank you! You are the best tutor for my both boys.

Pure awesomeness

Stephanie tutors both of my children. I'm convinced my son would not have passed chemistry without her guidance. She also helped provide guidance for running start and home Learning plans for my other child. She utilizes positive reinforcement in everything she does and also tries different learning styles depending upon the students needs. She is incredible!

Excellent Tutor

She worked with my daughter on brainstorming and planning on a complicated research paper. Highly recommend her if your searching for a great tutor. She is patient and experienced.

Gary, 1 lesson with Stephanie

knowledgeable, caring, personable tutor

Stephanie is very personable and really gets to know her students learning style so she can cater the lesson so they understand it. My daughter had several tutors that did not work out for one reason or another and we felt frustrated and hopeless about her passing her Chemistry class. Then we met Stephanie and things have turned around for the better, she has really given my daughter more confidence and hope. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone that needs a thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable tutor.
