...My formal qualification is that I have a degree in teaching, with a specialty in English. But my informal qualification is that I have always loved words and been told that I'm quite good at using them. I love to read and am a firm believer that the reading of good writing contributes greatly to becoming a good writer.

After earning a BS in Elementary Education at the University of Maryland, I taught middle school math (pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry) for three years in Montgomery County. Having since moved on to another career field, I no longer get to interact with students and share my love of learning. Tutoring allows me to help students think critically and make connections between different topics.

...I tailor the lesson to the student, and I frequently change activities and tasks to make sure that the student is following the lesson and stays on task. I have taught high school English classes that have specifically focused on PSAT review. I have also taught 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade.

...I welcome elementary students, as well, as my university courses have given me a strong background in teaching reading. As well as teaching ESOL (just completed my first year this June), I have had experience in teaching Shakespeare to children and teens, curriculum development,journalism, and creative writing. I would love to work with you to discover the joy and excitement of learning!

...Steve is especially strong in Geometry covering topics from straight lines, to triangles to circles to proofs, etc. He takes the approach that developing strong skills when taking Geometry will translate into improved PSAT, SAT and ACT Math scores later. Steve's tutoring skills and abilities have been sharpened by over six years of experience working with numerous students.
