    Kevin is a phenomenal tutor who came highly recommended. He breaks down the material in a clear and concise way to improve my understanding of concepts (and to improve my scores, as well). I only wish I had found him sooner. Thanks, Kevin!

  • Kieran Carlin

    Kevin is a great tutor to work with. He tutored me for my upper level SSAT exam for months. We met for 2 hours each session and he was able to keep the sessions fun and engaging. He is also very patient.

  • Kaileigh O’Hare

    Kevin is a great tutor helping me in anatomy and physiology. I highly recommend him.

  • Charles Wood

    I worked with Kevin on Genetics Material pertaining to upcoming cumulative exams, quizzes and Homework assignments. He was adaptable when it came to teaching material that I was struggling with, and was able to reaffirm concepts that I already knew, in order To make the most of the time we had. I would recommended Kevin for any Scientific classes as he is prepared prior to the sessions to assist his students!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Meet and greet, establish rapport, develop a sense of my student's strengths and weaknesses based on diagnostic tests or other sources that reflect their current academic performance, establish (and physically write down) my student's academic or personal goals, and focus my time building their their strengths in areas that they may need some extra guidance.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a tutor with whom you feel comfortable engaging in meaningful discussion and asking questions.

Confirm your tutor is fluent in your course(s) and field(s) of study by requesting to know more about their academic and professional background.

Definitely check reviews from the tutor's previous students/clients: these are most certainly the best indicators of the tutor's success (or lack thereof) and their students' experiences.
