My name is Stephanie M., and I am a 28-year-old female who loves reading, writing, and math. I was the valedictorian of my high school class and graduated from Rice University in May of 2011 with bachelor's degrees in mathematics, English, and French Studies. I currently reside in the beautiful state of Washington.

I've been tutoring students for years, starting in high school as part of the National Honor Society and as the president of our school's literary club, Writers' Circle. As a member of NHS, I scheduled tutoring sessions before and after school in math and French to help fellow high school students who were struggling in those subjects. In Writers' Circle, I worked with high school students who wanted to learn more about creative writing. I also often tutored informally: I was the go-to "tutor" for many of my friends and classmates who had math or French questions or who needed someone to look over an essay or college application.

I continued to work with students in college as part of the Academic Fellows, an honorary service organization dedicated to improving academic life at the university. I tutored college students one-on-one in both French and math and worked with students to plan and revise essays in various subjects. I also wrote and helped distribute instructional materials on writing English essays and structuring mathematical proofs.

After graduating from Rice and moving to Washington, I continued tutoring through the King County Library System's Study Zone program, where I currently work with students of all ages in subjects ranging from writing and spelling to algebra and geometry to biology and history.

The most important thing I can do as a tutor is to help students learn general skills and study skills, not just how to complete the specific assignments we work on together. While working with a middle school student on ancient Egyptian history, for example, I make sure to emphasize how to use chapter summaries to pinpoint what to study for an upcoming exam, the importance of learning bolded key terms, and the usefulness of section comprehension questions for focusing in on the key ideas from each section. My student will learn not only the history of ancient Egypt but also how best to use her textbook to study for her upcoming exam and future exams as well. My job is not just to get you through your current assignment (though I can certainly do that, too!) but to make sure you have the tools you need to get yourself through the next one.

I also find that practice problems are incredibly helpful. For example, if a student is struggling with a math problem we're working on, I identify basic aspects of the problem and design a series of practice problems to help the student learn the basic skills needed to solve not just that problem but any problem like it. Having the answer to one specific problem is not terribly useful, but having the skills to answer a whole class of problems is.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of tutoring is helping a student reach that "I get it!" moment where what we've been working on clicks on a deeper level. That's when I know I've made a lasting impact on a student's academic life, no matter how small. This is underscored by the numerous times students have come back to share good news with me: "That paper you helped me revise? I got an A on it!" "The geometry exam we looked over together? I just aced my next one!" "The spelling and grammar you worked on with my son? He's been doing really well on his homework assignments! Can you help him with history, too?" Every student has the potential to improve, to find pleasure in learning, and to do well, and I am always honored to be a part of that process.

Elementary (K-6th)

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.

English

I have always loved reading and writing, 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 annotated my fair share of novels and written my fair share of essays. At Rice, as an academic mentor, I often worked with fellow students on writing and revising essays. 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. Good writing often begins with good, attentive reading. I'm happy to work with students on developing good reading strategies, including practicing effective annotation, recognizing rhetorical devices, and identifying major themes. These strategies come together in choosing an essay topic and effectively arguing your point, so they're essential to master. I also enjoy working with younger students and would be happy to help with shorter papers, understanding the basics of writing a good sentence, and developing solid reading comprehension skills.

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.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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 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.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

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!

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

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.

Knowledgeable

Stephanie helped my daughter with algebra. She explained it the way that was easier for my daughter to understand and created multiple problems for my daughter to solve. We are happy with the service Stephanie provided.

Stephanie is wonderful!

My 10 years old is doing well at school, most of her grades are 3.5s and 4s. She wants to learn more so we asked Stephanie to tutor her Math, Science, and English. Yes, Stephanie is great at all objects. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. My daughter found her lessons fun, easy to understand, and inspiring. We are looking forward to keep working with Stephanie!

Stephanie is great!

My daughter's test scores in Algebra 2 improved from D's and C's to A and B's shortly after starting tutoring sessions with Stephanie . She gained more confidence in math and homework is no longer a struggle . I am very pleased to have found such a great teacher for my daughter with good and effective teaching skills and the ability to connect with her students the way Stephanie does. My daughter likes her tutor and enjoys the lessons with her. Thank you Stephanie !

Great Organized Tutor for Algebra II

Stephanie is very knowledgeable, patient and really knows the subject. She explains in a way that is very helpful to understanding one concept that then leads to the next concept. Great tutor!!!!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Algebra 2 in depth with guided homework too. Stephanie is great with my daughter, who enjoys her teaching style also. I would highly recommend her for tutoring!

Jane, 57 lessons with Stephanie

Highly recommended

My 16 year old daughter has been working with Stephanie for over a year, and Stephanie has been absolutely fabulous! She obviously loves what she does. She really showed how much she cared for my daughter every session. Stephanie made my daughter feel successful-not only in math, but in all aspects of school. My daughter came away from every session feeling more confident about what she was learning. Stephanie was honest in what help she could provide, and was consistently responsive when we needed to reschedule. I would highly recommend working with Stephanie!
