Stephanie has been an incredible tutor for my teenage son. She's very kind, understanding, down-to-earth, patient, and knowledgeable. She makes him feel comfortable and confident with his knowledge after each appointment.

We went to Stephanie for tutoring help for the upcoming SAT/ACTs. She easily teaches from each topic (math, English, and writing); it's obvious that she's comfortable in all these areas. She went through his PSAT, that he took last fall, and was able to help him understand the problems that he missed and teach him the concepts behind each one. She brought additional math practice pages for him to do in the areas that he didn't feel as strong in. We have also been happy that she is willing to help him with his current classes. She helped him understand a trigonometry math concept for a quiz that he was taking the next day. He did very well on it.

As a parent, I have communicated with Stephanie via email and she has been clear in her communication and prompt to reply back. She is also always on time and makes use of every minute. These are amazing blessings for a busy family.

We highly recommend Stephanie as tutor to anyone! She's really amazing!

Stephanie was extremely helpful and easy for my daughter to understand. She was knowledgeable in many subjects which was also very helpful.

Stephanie has really helped my daughter with organization skills and prioritization. She also seems more motivated than ever before. Thanks Stephanie!

Stephanie recently helped our daughter not only with her current assignment but also predicted what was coming next and gave her tips to use during the week.

My son (10th grader) sees Stephanie twice a week. She has been a big help to him with algebra 2. I also really appreciate how accessible she is via text. Always responds promptly and is willing to be flexible to unforeseen issues.

Stephanie always provides my daughter with the clear explanations and structure to help her become more confident about the material being covered. She is patient and knowledgeable.

Stephanie made it easy to work with her and was very knowledgeable with what my daughter needed - an explanation of higher level math concepts (pre-calc). We will continue to use Stephanie as a great tutor!

My daughter had gotten to the point that she was paralyzed by anxiety about the math, and Stephanie really helped her through that. My daughter walked away feeling better about herself, with her assurance that yes, this is difficult material. My daughter feels more confident about the math, and about herself. I am really grateful for that!

I am figuring out where my weak points are right now and strengthening them. I am going to be ready for next year.

My daughter had her first lesson and was feeling much better about practice problems right after it. Stephanie is very kind and knowledgeable and we are looking forward to the next lessons.

Stephanie is an excellent tutor. My son is so thankful to have her help. She explains things in a way that makes more sense to him. She has been a tremendous help!

Stephanie is very nice, patient, and punctual. We just started our lessons I suspect it would take a couple more session for Stephanie to get a good feel for my child's AP English teacher's expectation so that she could guide my child more effectively. Although there are standard guidelines for essay writing, at some level it becomes somewhat subjective and each teacher would have a specific style that he/she would expect their student to follow. We look forward to working with Stephanie and have committed to several lessons.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I did quite well in all my middle and high school math classes, including algebra I. I was often the go-to girl for helping my friends understand math concepts they were struggling with. I was able to figure out how to explain the concepts or problems in a way that made sense to them. Later, I used those same skills in a math tutoring program I helped set up at my high school through our school's chapter of the National Honor Society. I eventually majored in mathematics at Rice University, where I was an academic fellow, tutoring students in college-level mathematics, among other subjects.

When tutoring math, my goal is not just to help the student with whatever specific assignment he or she is working on at the time, but to make sure the student learns how to solve other problems like the ones he or she is working on. I can help students understand the concepts behind specific problems and how those concepts fit into the big picture. And perhaps most importantly of all, I love mathematics, and I have always enjoyed helping others learn to love it, too!

I took IB History of the Americas and IB 20th Century World Topics in high school (the IB program's equivalent of AP US History) and received a 6 out of 7 ("Very good") on my IB exam. I've always enjoyed learning about history and how each historical event fits into the bigger picture. I would be happy to tutor in American or US history, but would request access to the textbook or advance knowledge of specific topics to be covered in order to be most effective.

I have always enjoyed astronomy and took a college-level astronomy course in which I received an A+. I would be happy to tutor for intro-level astronomy courses, but will request access to the textbook and/or advance knowledge of what topics you are currently studying in order to be most effective.

I took IB Biology in high school (the IB program is similar to AP classes), and I especially enjoyed learning about Mendelian genetics. I would be happy to tutor for intro-level biology classes, but would request access to the textbook or advance knowledge of specific topics to be covered in order to be most effective.

I love working with kids, and I'm available to tutor elementary school students in any subject area. I have experience working with both elementary and middle school students and have tutored them in subjects as diverse as math (including geometry and algebra), English grammar and spelling, biology, and history.

As a successful student myself (valedictorian in high school, triple-major in college), I will not only work with students on specific assignments but on important basic study skills that will serve students well years in the future.

Most importantly, however, I loved going to school and I will work to pass on that love of learning to your child by making learning fun! If you'd simply like me to help your child with homework, I'll find creative ways to help him or her figure out the answers to any particularly tricky questions. If you're interested in tutoring in a particular subject (or several subjects), or if your child needs some extra practice with a particular concept (subtraction, spelling, etc.), I can use colorful flash cards for practice, play math and language games, or illustrate scientific concepts using everyday objects, depending on your child's needs.

I have always loved to write, and I enjoy using that passion to help others work with language as well. I graduated from Rice University with a B.A. in English, so I've written my fair share of essays of varying lengths. I have experience writing essays not only for English classes (analyzing literature, presenting an argument, or structuring a story, for example), but for history, philosophy, math, physics, linguistics, French, and astronomy classes as well, just to name a few.

At Rice, as an academic mentor, I often worked with fellow students on writing and revising essays. Several students came back after they had received a grade on their essays to thank me and tell me they'd gotten A's. I can help you design an effective thesis statement, structure your paper in a logical way, or simply look over your work to catch grammar errors or reword awkward sentences. Sometimes all an essay needs is a second pair of eyes.

I also enjoy working with younger students and would be happy to help with shorter papers, understanding the basics of writing a good sentence, or completing writing worksheets for class.

And if you have a less conventional writing assignment, I can probably help with that, too! I have experience working with students to write and edit poetry, and have even written several essays in French.
