Organization logo

As an undergraduate at Duquesne University, Steve was on the Dean's List, Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll, and Atlantic 10 conference men's tennis All-Academic team. He was also awarded Atlantic 10 men's tennis Student Athlete of the Year. He graduated with a degree in physics and is now a graduate student at Vanderbilt University pursuing his Doctorate in Medical Physics degree. Steve became a teaching assistant as a junior at Duquesne and has been teaching ever since. He has taught undergraduate physics labs for 4 years at Duquesne and Vanderbilt. Steve sets up and runs the labs and grades lab reports and quizzes, with up to 18 students per class, including non-science majors, science majors, and pre-meds. He has also tutored student athletes in physics for the Vanderbilt Athletic Department. About his teaching style, Steve says, "I try to create an environment where the student is comfortable asking questions. I like to guide the student to the answer by asking questions. Thinking through the problem is more important than just having the answer." As a current graduate student, Steve feels he can relate well to what students are going through and can help with college-related questions. "I love when students who think they will do poorly in a class or subject greatly exceed their expectations," he says. Steve played tennis, basketball, and lacrosse in high school and Division 1 tennis as an undergraduate. He taught tennis throughout that time. He is a big sports fan, especially hockey and the Pittsburgh sports teams (Penguins, Steelers, and Pirates). He enjoys music, both going to live shows and playing the guitar and bass. This summer he is running his first half-marathon and "tough mudder."

Noodle says

Prepnow is the online tutoring branch of Studypoint. They provide online training for their tutors, evaluate teaching style, and require two years of teaching experience. Because they screen and train their tutors, you can expect that most tutors are of reasonably high quality. Prepnow specializes in SAT, ACT, and math tutoring.

PrepNow Tutoring says

PrepNow's founders had a simple idea: to create a better alternative to impersonal learning centers.

With that goal in mind, Richard Enos and partner Gregory Zumas founded StudyPoint, Inc, a provider of in-home private tutoring, in Boston in 1999. They focused on the needs of families who wanted a higher level of customer service and convenience, and on students who would benefit from individualized, one-to-one instruction.

Early on, the company invested heavily in curriculum development and training standards, so that its tutors could deliver consistent and reliable academic and test prep results to families. As the company grew it added additional services and programs, ranging from individualized needs assessments to online homework tools.

As the organization replicated its tutoring model in new cities and towns, StudyPoint became a national organization serving clients on both coasts and in every major city in between.

Building on this success with students, and recognizing the growing potential to deliver high quality tutoring via a virtual classroom, StudyPoint launched PrepNow Tutoring. This division focused on high quality live online tutoring, and it broadened the company's reach to every city and town in America.

In 2010, we were named to the INC 5,000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America for the fourth consecutive year. But the true measure of our success is our satisfied customers. Since inception, StudyPoint and PrepNow have helped over fifteen thousand students nationwide increase their confidence while achieving higher grades and test scores.
