In addition to Steve's role as a tutor for MyGuru, he's a professional archaeologist who has spent most of the past ten years living in Europe and doing fieldwork in Central Asia, where he studies the prehistory of the famous "Silk Road". How did he get into that? Thank the teachers! From elementary through high school, a number of fantastic instructors recognized and nd cultivated his fascination with archaeology, eventually leading him to obtain a master's degree, then a PhD, and finally to pursue his own research in which he has been able to teach and mentor students in those fields that have always interested him. So what does an archaeology career have to do with tutoring math, or writing, or standardized college/grad school preparatory tests? Absolutely everything! For him, the most important aspects of working with students are connection, engagement and, when possible, excitement. His own background, which involves personal aspirations, exploration, and ultimately professional achievement, has provided him with a set of circumstances taht he can use to relate to students in ways that transcend any individual subject. Whether he's explaining the role of statistics in the humanities, or the importance of capturing and conveying one's own identity in a college application statement or GRE essay, I try to convey these concepts as an informative, enlightening, and hopefully enjoyable journey.
