Hi, I'm a former high school chemistry teacher and I've been tutoring for over four years. I'm available to tutor AP, Honors and regular high school chemistry students. I am very familiar with where students struggle (stoichiometry, grams and moles, buffer solutions, gas laws, etc.).

I also believe that as a tutor, I should adapt to the student's learning style, not the other way around. I can explain things in more than one way, and use analogies as well as my own custom created chemistry worksheets to break down the concept in a way that is more understandable to the student. I’m very results oriented with tutoring–to me, the way of explaining things that allows you to understand is the right way.

All students, no matter what level they are at now, can achieve academic success. Whatever your starting point is, we’ll get you to your goal in small, manageable steps. I’ll never make you feel bad about the level you’re at now.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have years of experience preparing students for all math subjects covered in the ACT. These math topics include: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. I have material ready to help students master these topics. In addition, I go over the higher level critical thinking and reasoning that is required on the ACT exam.

Algebra 1

I am experienced in tutoring numerous students in high school Algebra. I can lucidly communicate the critical topics that include: solving and graphing linear equations, variables and algebraic expressions, factoring quadratic equations, Pythagorean theorem, sequences and pattern recognition.

I have the patience to work with students who have trouble with algebra. I look forward to helping your student reach their maximum potential.

Chemistry

I can tutor AP chemistry, Honors Chemistry and regular Chemistry students. I'd be happy to help your son/daughter with their chemistry problems as I'm a former chemistry teacher.

Geometry

I have tutored several students in the past two years in Geometry. I understand how difficult the course can be for students, particularly two-column proofs. I know what is asked on the CA state CST geometry exam and can help your child make this class, if not enjoyable, at least not horrifically scary.

SAT Math

I scored over 700 on my SAT math section. I have tutored numerous students in preparation for the entire SAT exam. I would love to help your child maximize their score on the SAT exam. Don't second guess your child's future, maximize their score in this critical exam.

Beyond the main math subjects: algebra, geometry and algebra II, I can help students improve their critical thinking and reasons skills.

Chemistry tutor for the lost! — Kevin showed up on time, got the lay of the land quickly and helped my 10th grader with what was difficult for him. He explained things clearly, pausing to make sure his student had understood. We will definitely be using Kevin again. He has that high school teacher who has been doing this forever way about him. Excellent lesson. ...
