I have lived overseas and have friends from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America.

I'm fluent in German and my native English, and enjoy learning about other cultures and know some Dutch, Swedish, French and Chinese, however, my main area of instruction for tutoring has been in math and science.

I was recognized by the state's teacher competency service with a Recognition of Excellence in Content Knowledge for Chemistry.

I have my Bachelor's in Chemistry and a Master's in Busin...
Some things are confusing for both Steven and I. He is very passionate about his work and students, however. Thank you

Stephen helped my son organize his study of German II into manageable chunks, and has kept him moving along in his studies to accomplish his goals. Stephen's enthusiasm for German and his knowledge of the language has made this an enjoyable learning experience for my son.

Keeps up with where student is in class (college level) and works with her accordingly. Provides helpful information and websites for review and practice outside of tutoring. Supportive and able to explain information to make difficult concepts more easily understood.

Steve is very patient and knowledgeable in several subjects. He can help my son with geometry and then help him study for his German test. My son enjoys working with Steve and with just a few sessions my son has improved in several subjects. Steve is very easy to work with and is very prompt. Highly recommend!

My son had his first tutoring session with Stephen. We were all so pleased. He has a great way of making the student feel at ease and comfortable. Stephen was patient and extremely encouraging. We are sure that he will be of great help!!

Steve is an amazing tutor. My daughter had one marking period of calculus left before graduation and she was failing. She met with Steve 1-2 times a week and he helped her bring her grade up to an 83 for the marking period, she passed for the year and graduated. Steve worked with her, determined what her problems were and addressed them while working on improving her confidence in her abilities. Steve is also very pleasant, personable, professional, and he kept us informed of her progress after every session. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who needs tutoring.

Steve has been working with my son since mid-year and we've noticed a significant improvement not only in his grades but also in his confidence with Algebra II. Steve works very hard to ensure that the student understands the logic of the concept and how to study independently. He builds confidence with each lesson and is very supportive. It is great to have a tutor who really cares about long term success and is willing to assist in any way possible. As Spring sports kicked off we had to juggle dates around and Steve was very flexible helping us find a solution. We really appreciate the effort Steve has provided as a responsible tutor.

Stephen and I met at a mutually convenient location. He set the tone for a comfortable learning session. Together, we worked through some of the problems I had been having.

Stephen has really helped my 7th grade son feel more confident with beginning Algebra, and better yet, my son enjoys the tutoring sessions. Thanks!
- Robin K. from Kennett Square, PA
Steve's calm demeanor and respect for students as individuals assisted him in teaching my son Chemistry concepts. In each hour session he was able to teach and reinforce the key concepts that my son did not understand when taught by his school instructor. Even though we enlisted Steve's help late in the semester, I have seen the grades and confidence in learning continue to rise. My son actually seems to enjoy learning Chemistry in the tutoring sessions (and it was his least favorite subject). If we need help next year, we will be in touch with Steve right away.

Stephen has been an asset to my son in getting through this Chemistry Course. Stephen is an excellent communicator and keeps us informed. He made his cancellation policy clear when we missed a session, but he makes himself available for the occasional phone call. He is prompt and dependable.

Steve is a fabulous tutor that takes an interest in his students. He strives to find creative ways to help his students succeed and to renew their confidence in themselves. Within two weeks of beginning to work with Steve my daughter was regaining her confidence in German. She connected with him very quickly and looked forward to working with him each week. I would highly recommend Steve if you are looking for a tutor.
- Darlene M. from Lincoln University, PA
I contacted Steve when my daughter was failing Honors Geometry with only 3 weeks of school left. He met with her twice a week and helped her bring her grade up to a C which was practically a miracle. Lauren understood things Steve taught her that she had been confused about for weeks. Her grades on her subsequent quizzes and tests were all A's or B's and subsequently her 4th quarter grade improved. Lauren's confidence also soared and, while we still don't know her final exam grade, she seemed very confident before and after the exam so we're hoping for good things. Steve was considerate and encouraging and Lauren really responded to his tutoring. I would recommend Steve to anyone who needs help with math. I think you'll be very pleased with the results.
