Have logged in over 450 hours of paid tutoring lessons in physics.
All of my general physics students and high school physics students have told me I should teach their class.
Teachers Assistant General Physics Labs "Twice" (Included recitation and review sessions)
Physics GPA 3.801 (A or A- in all classes. One B because I skipped a prerequisite class to take the hardest class at my school in order to graduate quicker)
AP Calculus Test AB - 5
Math GPA 3.84 (A or A- in all classes)
2012 American Chemical Society Division in Inorganic Chemistry Award
I want to teach because I love it, I have been told I am good at it, and I am going to get a PHD in physics to do it.
My strength in teaching is I can explain things at the most simplest level and during the lessons, the student will be as active as possible in order to maximize retention.
HobbiesI bike everywhere but have a car. I like to rock climb but haven't in a while. I played football in college but don't watch it. I don't eat sweets or drink cokes but love to eat healthy and enjoy cold purified water. I am 24 years old.

Thanks bro, I got the grade i needed to get into pharmacy school. You're the best tutor I have ever had.
Thanks so much! I'm not going to lie, I cried when I saw my grade. My parents no longer hate me for spending all of their money! It was worth every penny and every hour. You're going to be a great teacher!!!
Just wanted you to know I made an A in Physics! Thanks for all your help :) I appreciate everything you did to help me. I will recommend to friends if they ever take the class and need help.
Stephen is fantastic! He not only really knows his stuff but is also very energetic and passionate towards his studies. I was very impressed by his availability and meeting flexibility. I would definitely refer him to any other friends or classmates who were struggling with -- or just needed a brush up on the fundamentals in -- either Physics, Chemistry, Math, or all three. Being a double major, Stephen is ably equipped to see the connections among those three disciplines: To problem-solve with a unique, inter-disciplinary approach rare among tutors. Here, I've learned that a strong conceptual foundation is important, not simply just implementing a bulk memorization of every Physics formula in the book.
Excellent tutor! Steven has been tutoring me for the last year in Physics I and II. As I had been having trouble in my General Physics class @ BSC, Steven successfully led me to a great grade in the class. He helped me with my conceptual misunderstandings and mathematical mistakes. With his physics experience, he was able to guide me through old tests and questions I had. I have never before had such a tutor. He has not only taught me how to study for this specific subject, but he is a great academic mentor, given his personal academic success. I feel extremely blessed to have him during my General Physics class. You'll be crazy if you DON'T give this guy a call for help!!!
He is a great person to work with because he really cares whether or not you understand the subject material. He also has a passion for his field, and so this makes him want to do the best he can in understanding problems we bring to him so that in turn he can help us understand. He's very punctual and reliable, and has been a great asset to me so far in my college physics pursuits.
He is awesome at explaining physics. I have a much better grasp at knowing how to tackle problems. Easy to find a time to meet too. Very available.
GREAT, AWESOME,KNOWS HOW TO TUTOR AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO THE POINT.WILL DEFINITELY BE CALLING HIM AGAIN
