About Stephen


Bio

I hold a Master's degree in Creative Writing from the University of Washington and a Bachelor's degree in English and Philosophy from Concordia University in Montreal. As a student, I won various academic awards––I am happy to provide a full resume with the details. I scored in the 98th percentile on the verbal section of the GRE and 99th percentile on the verbal section of the GMAT. I also hold a Cambridge CELTA, a certificate in ESL teaching, and have taught in North America and South...

I hold a Master's degree in Creative Writing from the University of Washington and a Bachelor's degree in English and Philosophy from Concordia University in Montreal. As a student, I won various academic awards––I am happy to provide a full resume with the details. I scored in the 98th percentile on the verbal section of the GRE and 99th percentile on the verbal section of the GMAT. I also hold a Cambridge CELTA, a certificate in ESL teaching, and have taught in North America and South Korea, in classrooms and one-on-one.

Over the past decade, I have been helping students of all ages develop their reading and writing skills, organization and accountability, and overall academic curiosity and confidence. During that time, I've learned as much as my students have. My mom was a resource teacher who helped students with disabilities thrive in the classroom, and later worked as educational consultant for international schools: between my own experience and research and my regular "consultations" with her, I have developed a pedagogical approach that emphasizes relationship building, student-led discovery, and a growth mindset.

I run my own tutoring business, Write Seattle LLC, and I'm looking to incorporate Wyzant into my offerings. Thanks for helping me get started on this platform!

SAT Reading

Not only have I tutored dozens of students for the verbal side of the SAT, but I use the test as a diagnostic for students' reading comprehension skills. I know it inside out, and I've been very successful in helping students increase their scores. I grew up in Canada so never actually took the SAT... But I scored in the 98th percentile on the verbal side of the GRE and 99th percentile on the verbal side of the GMAT, both of which are significantly harder than the SAT. I also have a Master's degree in Creative Writing and a BA in English and Philosophy.
