About Stephen

I have just completed seven years teaching at a university in southern China where I taught English Creative Writing, Comprehension, Theatre Drama, Phonetics, Public Speaking, and Analytical English Essay Writing. I am very proficient in teaching English, having gained a TESOL teaching certificate and a Baccalaureate Degree in Human Services with a specialty in child development. My degree gives me insight into working the minds of students at all learning levels.

I love teaching, and I am considered by many students to have helped them gain both confidence and motivation while learning a difficult language. I consider myself a professional, who takes his work seriously. But at the same time understands the many obstacles students face in the learning process. My tutoring approach is relaxed to help build student confidence and the joy of learning. I am always on time for class, and for the benefit of tutor and student adhere to a 24-hour cancellation policy.

Thank you for considering me as your teacher.

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.

Photography

For 10 years, I worked in the newspaper and magazine business. I have been published in both foreign and national magazines and newspapers.
For me, one of my greatest moments was seeing a photo I took of comedian Bill Cosby appear in Newsweek Magazine.
Today, I am working on an exhibition of my images , Titled . "Back Roads of China."
I have used both film and digital cameras.
