All of Kirk’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Kirk’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

This class develops skills that are used in subjects as diverse as trigonometry, calculus and statistics. Most students breeze through the early material but then hit the wall when it comes to factoring. Unfortunately, factoring is the crucial skill that students must learn in algebra.

The good news is that I have developed a proprietary system for factoring that will make factoring one of your favorite things to do. Instead of fearing factoring, you will come to love it as I do!

Algebra 2

Subject matter covered in this class includes matrices, radicals, logarithms, domain, absolute value and systems of equations. In addition, graphing becomes more extensive and complicated.

My methods for teaching these subjects are unique and based on my experience tutoring thousands of students over a six-year time period. If you are looking for an easier way to learn algebra, then contact me. You will be happy that you did.

Calculus

Calculus is known as a "major changer." What this means is that many students end up changing their major when they hit calculus. Do not be one of the 50% who fails calculus I.

I can get you through this class with a minimum of pain. Let me translate all of the abstract symbols, formulas and definitions into plain English. I also have many handouts that help you get through some of the tougher spots.

Please don't wait until you have failed a test or two to get help. Contact me early and reduce your stress and increase your scores.

Precalculus

I take a sophisticated approach to teaching the material in this class. I show students the connection between precalculus and calculus. I like to bring students up to speed on many calculus concepts while they are in precalculus.

For instance, I teach students about limits and the difference quotient which are both covered in the first few weeks of calculus. In addition, I will introduce them to the first derivative so that they are not overwhelmed in calculus I.

Statistics

No subject strikes terror into the heart of a student like statistics does. I once had a stockbroker tell me that he had to take statistics three times before he passed.

It does not have to be so hard! God gave me the special ability to translate statistics into plain English. Using proven memory techniques, I connect new abstract concepts with things that you already know. I also know the author of the best-selling statistics book in the United States. The reason that I know him is that we correspond on a regular basis about statistics.

Please don't wait until you have failed several tests to contact me. Spend the money now and buy some peace of mind and high test scores.

Trigonometry

If you did well in geometry, then you will do well in trigonometry. However, if you did not, then trig will literally have you going in circles. Speaking of circles, one of the first things I do is to teach my students how to draw the unit circle. Being able to easily draw the unit cicle is a big stress reducer!

I also have unique ways of remembering the dozens of formulas that trig uses. Lastly, I have a special graphing technique that will make graphing trig functions super easy.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
