EducationI am a Design Engineer for Power Production Management, helping people save money with solar power. I got my Master's Degree in Materials Science and Engineering with a 3.20 GPA at the University of Florida. I also graduated with my Bachelor's in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of North Texas with a 3.64 GPA.
ExperienceI've been tutoring my peers since my freshman year of high school. I enjoy seeing people succeed in their classes! I believe some students just need a push or another outlook on how to solve a problem. In addition to my high ratings, I have had several students tell me they couldn't have passed without me. I would love to help you succeed in your next class!
I was also a TA for a few engineering classes at UF. Being a TA, I have learned teaching techniques that work and how most professors tend to grade their students. Group rates can be discussed.
HobbiesI like playing sports, video games, hanging out with friends, and cheering on my Florida Gators! Occasionally I like to help people reach the top shelves in the grocery store! I always look for different ways to help others, which is why I always look for opportunities to "Pay it Forward" in the local community.
I can meet students anywhere in the Gainesville area. I don't charge an additional fee for locations that are less than 20 minutes away from where I live; however, those up to an hour away will have a hourly charge.

Stefan is a very experienced calculus tutor. I decided to use a private tutor after Study Edge and Smokin' Notes weren't working for me. He sits down with me and goes at my own pace. Everywhere else I always feel rushed. I'm not rushed nor do I ever feel stupid if I get a question wrong. He always made sure I understood the material, and was able to recall it in review sessions. I usually have problems retaining things taught in my classes, but Stefan's help has improved my memory (at least for the material he's teaching me on!). Great tutor all around! Thanks for all the help!
I contacted Stefan a few months ago, I needed his help to pass my GRE exam. I was desperate because I knew very little about math and I didn't have much time to cover all the topics required. Stefan helped me with patience and dedication until few days before the GRE. I strongly recommend him as a tutor for his teaching skills and his enormous knowledge of the subject. Finally I had a super positive GRE score especially for the quantitative part. If you are looking for a miracle, Stefan is definitively your man!!!!!
This past semester, I took Pre-Calculus at Santa Fe College. This was the first math course that I had taken in two years, and I was never great at math to begin with. I essentially failed two of the first four tests in the class, but with Stefan's help I was able to finish extremely strong. I ended up getting two B+'s on the final two tests, and an A on the final to finish the class with a B. If anybody out there is in my position, get in contact with Stefan & do what he tells you to do. If you follow those two protocols, you are pretty much guaranteed success in the class that he tutors you in, he is that damn good.
Stefan Rocks and I wish he was going to be hear in the Fall 2014 when I'll need him again!
This guy is amazing! He make me feel confident with math in a few sessions... got an A on the test! Thanks Stefan
Stefan is such a great tutor! Had major problems with Stats and contacted him at the last minute before my Final Exam. I would have failed the class if he didn't help! Thanks!!!
Great, easygoing and patience. My son learned a lot in a short time and improved his grade in Physics. Highly recommendable. Thanks Stefan!!
Stefan was great. My son gained a great deal from the time spent with Stefan. We will use him again.
Great Tutor! Teaches in an easy and understandable manner. Encourages and interacts well with student.
This young man is fantastic. My twin boys liked his approach of how to work out their math problems. Very polite and full of useful knowledge. We started out with Stefan tutoring the boys once per week and have already decided that we will have him come to our home at least twice a week if not more depending on his school schedule.
