Info for the students:

Hi there. My name is Stefan. You can also call me Mr. Maurer if you prefer.

I am really excited to be able to teach you about Math. Math is something I find joy in and am very passionate about.

One of my fondest memories was when my dad used to take me to stores, and if I could guess correctly what the change would be after he paid, I could keep the change.

One day he had only bought an item around a couple dollars and he had paid with a 20 dollar bill. Two things happened that day: I got almost 18 dollars. And, my dad never played that game again (because he did not want something like that to happen again, where I would make off with a lot of money, lol).

I would love the opportunity to teach you the math skills I know, and to get you just as excited about math as I am.

My classes are fun, and full of energy as well as knowledge. I guarantee that you will learn a lot, and have a great time doing so. 🤣


Info for the parents:

I am an individual who finds math fun, and energizing. I find it fascinating at how many different formulas exist, and how there are often multiple ways of deducing the same problem and finding the solution.

I can help lead my students into finding the best formula that works for them/they are able to understand. I can guide them towards finding the solution on their own, rather than someone just telling them the answer.

What I feel sets me apart from other math teachers, is that I excel with communicating with other individuals who face mental health challenges such as ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome/Autism Spectrum. I have been certified in the state of Georgia for over 2 years now as a CPS-Y (Certified Peer Specialist-Youth).

I, myself have Aspergers Syndrome and ADHD. So, I can 100% relate to a lot of the challenges my students may face in regards to math skills and providing an effective learning environment. The reason I call these challenges, and not disabilities, is since people can overcome challenges.

While it may be difficult, I have the confidence required to bring out the best in my students, since I, myself, have had lived experiences where I have overcome challenges, and tore down obstacles, despite having Aspergers Syndrome and ADHD.

I would love the opportunity to teach my students math and have them also find joy in the math I am so passionate about. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I am actually a well-established instructor here on TakeLessons and was thrilled to find out Stefan Maurer is teaching Math online! Stefan is everything he describes. I should know - he is my nephew. I have personally witnessed countless scenarios of Stefan making mathematical calculations which far exceeded his grade level.

Stefan is patient, kind, full of encouragement and pays great attention to detail, which is crucial in math. He also excels with students who have ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome or are on the Autism spectrum.

It is with great confidence that I highly recommend Stefan Maurer!
