I enjoy helping students understand and gain the knowledge and skills they need and want to succeed in school, in work, in life. Students learn Standard American English pronunciation, reducing or eliminating their accent, and they feel the difference in their lives right away.
I have been studying philosophy with Steven for about 8 months, and it has been a great educational experience. He provides insightful guidance and support without simply spoon-feeding the ideas to you. I feel that I have not only gained an understanding of Greek and Existentialist philosophy, but have also become an improved critical reader of philosophical texts.
Steven is by far the best tutor I’ve ever come across. He is very knowledgeable and is willing to teach people of all skill levels. He makes it a point to understand each of his students so that he’s able to help them as much as possible. I have nothing but respect for him and his approach to teaching. While being a tutor, Steven has also been an amazing advisor for me to figure out how to proceed with my graduate school and future career. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a tutor. He’s wonderful to work with and a great life coach!
He’s one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. He doesn’t only help with topics that you do not understand, make sure you have understood them and provide good work materials but he also adds facts that are related to the topic which I personally think makes the classes more interesting. Finally, besides being a great teacher, he was also a great advisor since I didn’t know what specific major I wanted to study and he helped me find it according to the abilities he could see in me. Best teacher ever!
Steve is an experienced and great teacher. He has the ability to teach someone from basic to advance level with a friendly and effective approach. His English lessons are complemented with interesting topics, which make every class very engaging. Steve's knowledge of etymology brings a deeper understanding of the vocabulary and use according to context, something that is not easy to find. His classes make a difference.
Often, in order to determine the proper teaching strategy, I need to do some diagnostic testing of the student. This is informal and involves a series of exercises that allow me to evaluate the student’s skills and skill level. Once this is done, we can proceed to attain the student’s goals.
