"Hi! I'm Steve. I want to make your learning experience fun and rewarding! I've taught a wide variety of subjects for over twelve years both in and outside of brick-and-mortar schools. I have taught in, and built curricula for, whole class environments, small groups and private lessons/tutoring sessions. Subjects I have taught include high school and middle school math, study skills, biology, and music. I also have several years experience in working with those who learn differently, have learning challenges, or those who need special help in accessing information. I am in school now, so I know what it means to always be learning and growing!

I have experience teaching pre-algebra, Algebra 1 and and Algebra 2 in small group settings, and have taught High school Geometry/Trig. I acquired a Math 1 single subject teaching credential in Oakland in 2014. I know some have a fear of math, and I want to help that fear disappear! I really like looking at problems in new ways, and driving students to find their own solutions and techniques.

I taught private lessons for a number of years, both to children and adults, before founding and teaching a 7-12th grade music program over four years at an Oakland Public charter school. I also spent several years performing in bands that played a variety of styles like rock, jazz, and r&b. I specialize in beginners!

I am what some teachers call a "generalist." I like it all- math, social studies, music, sciences, etc. I even teach outdoor education, If you want to learn to surf! I am currently in school taking prerequisites for a nursing degree so I am experiencing both being a teacher and a student at the same time. I would love to help you meet your educational goals!" less...
