After two meetings with Kevin, my son got an A on his chemistry test. Prior to his tutoring, he was getting C's and D's. Money well spent.
Kevin was an exceptional tutor for our son in both honors chemistry and honors algebra 2. We wish we had found him sooner. He is personable, he has terrific command of the material, and he made time outside of our usual schedule for our son if he had a test or trouble with a concept. He explained the material well, and he used the time in every session, wisely making great suggestions about how the teaching session could be maximized. We highly recommend him!
Our son really enjoyed working with Kevin on strengthening his basic algebra skills. Kevin was very patient and used an approach that connected very well with my son. My son's confidence and math skills were definitely strengthened due to the effort that Kevin made in working with him.
Kevin worked with my daughter to help her through a difficult college chemistry class. He was able to explain the subject matter in a way that her professor could not. He was very patient, focused, and knowledgeable. He was easy to contact, and responded in a timely manner. He was flexible with scheduling, and always tried to accommodate my daughter in regard to tutoring hours. I would highly recommended Kevin!
Kevin J. is approachable, flexible to work with time-wise, and really knows his subject. We have been able to communicate very well by email, phone, and Skype. Kevin was extremely helpful in helping our son in IB Chemistry. Kevin has been patient, persistent, understandable, and friendly. We will be continuing with Kevin to have SAT tutoring. We would recommend Kevin J. as a tutor for you, especially if you have challenges with Chemistry.
Kevin has been an excellent motivator! He uses common everyday examples to explain science, making it a lot more interesting and easier to remember vocabulary words and laws of science. One key thing Kevin implemented was the creation of flash cards and how to study with them. Something so simpl, has really been a tremendous help in learning the material for test/quizes. A failing grade went up to C. We would definitely recommend Kevin!
Kevin works with our 8th grade daughter for both math and science. In short order, she has gained so much confidence in math that she now helps her peers in class and even went to the board to solve a problem in front of the class recently. Something that she never did before without fear and anxiety. With science we see Kevin providing her with easy to implement study strategies that have proved successful. And she said that the way he explains the concepts helps her apply them to real world experiences - supporting her learning. He shows her how to connect the dots between the science concepts and what is happening all around us in today's world. His tutoring style is supportive, encouraging, and effective.
Kevin is a wonderful tutor. He has really helped my son put his chemistry and geometry facts in order. My son has found Kevin to be a good teacher and he is able to explain things in a way that Jimmy is able to grasp. Thank you Kevin. He has worked with our schedule and is prompt with any messages.
Kevin has been teaching my son college level inorganic chemistry for the past two months. He has outstanding teaching skills and a very friendly personality. He has been able to build confidence in my son that he was lacking before with significant improvement of his grades. I would recommend Kevin highly without any reservations!
Kevin has made high school chemistry much more manageable for our son. Kevin is able to communicate concepts with relevant examples and makes them more tangible. The time he spends with our son is completely productive- there's no wasted time. Our son's confidence with the coursework has increased and his grades have steadily improved. Kevin has been a great resource, and dependable as well!
Kevin did a great job working with our son to understand where he is currently in chemistry and what he would like to focus on. Kevin was extremely flexible in designing a unique program to meet our son's chemistry desires in a very interesting and exciting way. Our son is incredibly excited to be working with Kevin and he is eagerly looking forward to their future sessions together.
Kevin has been a God sent for my 10th grade son! He has been the only one who has successfully been able to connect with him. The wall has finally come down & we have seen dramatic results. He really knows how to connect with his students! We have seen such great results that we are getting a jump start on next school year & will continue to have Kevin tutor our son over the summer!
Kevin was very helpful during the time he helped our daughter with her chemistry lessons. He spent time listening to what she had difficulty with and explained well to clear her doubts in the subject I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable patient tutor!
Kevin helped me understand concepts. I gave very short notice for help and he was there and helped me work it out. Great tutor!
Kevin is thoughtful in his approach to tutoring. Each week he determines where my son needs help and tutors appropriately, whether it's just extra practice or completely reteaching him a lesson; Kevin never takes it for granted that my son has the same issue week in and week out. He is also patient and has an easy-going nature that is perfect for my teenager to relate to. My son's level of understanding has improved and he doesn't feel lost in class like he did before Kevin started tutoring him. I can rely on Kevin to not only be there each week but to stay for as long as needed to accomplish the week's lesson.
Kevin has been helping our daughter finally grasp basic principles of Chemistry missing for most of the year. We are only sorry that we haven't had his experise earlier in the school year. Kevin is patient and persistent in making sure that she grasps a concept before moving on. He uses anecdotal examples and humor to keep her interested and to help her retain the information. He is an excellent addition to our daughter's learning and have seen after only a few sessions - a remarkable increase in her grade. She got her first B of the year after only two sessions with Kevin. He is also responsive to all emails and phone calls and is extremely flexible and accomodating with his schedule. We would highly recommend Kevin for any subject he tutors!
Kevin is a very knowledgeable tutor that knows a lot about chemistry. He is easy to relate to and can provide real world examples to the subject. Kevin was always available and was able to work around my schedule. Great tutor!
Kevin has helped both my children with Pre-algebra, Honors Geometry and Honors chemistry. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable and very patient when working with the kids. He is happy to go over things again and again if one of the kids is not quite understanding the concept. Kevin is able to break down extremely complicated chemistry concepts so that they are understandable and then ties it all together so it makes sense to them. Kevin is always on time if not early, has never canceled, and is flexible if a test is coming up and one of the kids needs more time. I give Kevin an excellent review every time he comes to help my children. I am very grateful that we found Kevin.
Kevin is prompt, prepared and professional. My son feels comfortable discussing his concerns with math and feels that Kevin has been a tremendous help after just two lessons. Great job, Kevin!
