If you are looking for someone to help you where others have failed, or if you just want the best, then I'm definitely your tutor. Key focus must be on the student overcoming any mental barriers he/she may have to understanding the subjects. I teach concepts first and test taking second. If you know the concepts, the test results follow, but test taking strategies are also emphasized.

I specialize in college level courses but am willing to tutor the highly motivated college-bound high school or middle school student if they are serious.

I've spent years in both academia and in the business world and can draw from actual examples that may arise on the job or in the laboratory. My rates are slightly higher than average, but you will find your results will be also.

UTAH (PhD)

Wonderful physics and calculus tutor. When I first hired Kevin to tutor my son in physics and calculus, he was struggling to get Cs in the class. We had Kevin work with him twice a week for the 2nd half of the school year and were thrilled to see his Cs turn into As. There is no doubt in my mind that Kevin's quality tutoring made all the difference in the world and helped save my son's GPA. He has been patient, flexible and always ...
