Hi! My name is Stephanie and I tutor all things English because, well, I am English obsessed! I earned my Bachelor's degree in English from UC Riverside in 2013 and my Master's degree in English from Cal Poly Pomona in 2015. When I don't have my nose stuck in a book (which honestly isn't that often) I enjoy camping, playing with my dog, and spending time with my family and friends.
I am passionate about teaching. Seeing my students learn and grow over the course of the quarter/semester is what I live for. I love seeing my students make new connections and analyze texts in complex and insightful ways.
What do they say about me?
"Stephanie really helped me prepare for the analytical writing portion of the GRE, and I'll miss our sessions."
"Stephanie is a really great tutor and is very good at her job. I have learned many things during the sessions that we have together."
What is your teaching style?
I encourage my students to stop and ask questions at every moment of my lessons: the only stupid questions are the ones that you are too afraid to ask! I believe that establishing an environment in which students are comfortable enough to ask questions is integral to the learning process, and has to be established early. I want them to see me as someone who cares about their progress and growth through the learning process.
