About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

Stephenie is the perfect combination of knowledge, practical skill, patience, and encouragement. She has a student centered style that makes you feel comfortable asking questions and expressing struggles. She is right there next to you in your educational journey. I always have the sense that she has my back, that she genuinely cares about my progress. And she has a gentle sense of humor as well. I wish there were more teachers like her.

I've known Stephenie for a number of years and in different professional roles. The thing that impressed me the most was her ability to be organized and give clear directions. She is articulate and caring. I've experienced firsthand her attention to the details of each person who she was either serving or supervising. I think she will be a great teacher for any subject.
