About Stephen


Bio

I have helped explain a variety of subjects in many ways, as understood by each student specifically. I am able to achieve this by utilizing my background training in Education as a guide. Specific focus involves the use of such methods as Vygotsky's Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD), Scaffolding techniques and Gardner's Multiple Intelligences examples. I enjoy sharing and understand that quality teaching is hard to find in today's educational environment.

My major in college was Political Science. Many of the classes I enjoyed included Political Parties, International Governments, Terrorism and Nuclear Proliferation and Inner City Politics. After I graduated, I ran as a write-in candidate for a local city council seat. I currently tutor middle and high-school students in political science as it pertains to their studies. This interaction ranges from helping with speeches and debates to discussing the different political and governmental differences among countries to the discussion of history.

Stephen really helped me with Excel and Word

Because I use both Excel and Word in my work, I know a lot about both programs, but needed to learn how to use the special features, and how to get rid of the intrusive settings and so forth in order to format things the way I want them. We hit it off very well, and I may call on him for a refresher in the future. Thanks for taking the time to understand my needs.

Anne, 1 lesson with Stephen
Tutor responded:

Anne, thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to future lessons.

Great for every subject!

Steve has been a great fit for my brother, who is a sophomore doing Connections Academy. He has helped with many subjects including geometry, biology, and English and has helped him develop study and research skills. Geometry has been our biggest struggle, and Steve is able to explain it in a way that my brother understands which is invaluable! So glad we found Steve, and we will continue to have him come 2-3 times per week.

Amber, 29 lessons with Stephen
Tutor responded:

Thanks, Amber! It is a pleasure working with your brother. He is a hard worker, and he takes pride in a job well-done. I appreciate this, and I know that he continues to strive to accomplish his academic goals. Thanks again for the kind words.

Pleasant Surprise

Stephen has been working with my high school freshman for about a month. He is professional and motivated to help improve my student. He's taken time to evaluate what my student needs and has formulated a game plan to advance his knowledge. Looking forward to working with Stephen even more to see what he can accomplish.

Brian, 20 lessons with Stephen
Tutor responded:

Thanks Brian! It has been a pleasure working with your family. I appreciate the dedication and hard work on the part of the student. It really makes a difference! I look forward to working with you in the future, as well. Take care, and thanks again for the kind words.
