Hi there! My name is Stephenie. I have an extensive history of teaching a variety of subjects throughout my adult life starting in 1992 with violin lessons given in my home. I played classical violin throughout my childhood and early adulthood. I have also taught jewelry making at a local bead store and in my jewelry studio in my own home. Later, after getting my BA in Psychology and my education in early childhood education, I started teaching students from preschool age to adulthood in English as a foreign language, English reading, and English writing. I have also taught young children to read through the use of phonics, as well as teaching students with special abilities such as learning disabilities and ADHD. I also tutored adult learners in academic writing while I was getting my MPA, Masters in Public Administration, Non profit Management. I have had a varied career in social services and management, but throughout all of it, my love of teaching has been there. I could never stop myself from offering teaching and tutoring on the side. As I am older now, and wish to focus on what I really love, I am focusing again on teaching. I am teaching English as a second language, English reading and writing. I have a wide variety of interests and am a very creative person. I bring that creativity, my sense of humor, and my easy going personality into every lesson I teach. Learning should always be fun! My students have fun and learn so much at the same time. That is the key to good teaching. Not just what you learn, but how you learn, and how you feel while learning. My students learn so much from me, but they also have fun doing it and enjoy what they are learning, even if they have had a hard time with the subject in the past. Come sign up for a lesson with me. I would love to meet you and help make your learning fun and enjoyable.

Stephenie is a great writing instructor. She has been able to work with me and my learning style all at my speed. She is willing to take the time to reexplain a concept to me if I don’t understand the first time. She has provided consistent constructive feedback durning all our classes.
