I could not even begin to say enough good things about Kevin's tutoring skills - he is absolutely fantastic! He tutored my son for 2 semesters of organic chemistry and put together a tutorial for the MCAT. Never having used a tutor before, my son was hesitant to start, but immediately felt a connection with and found confidence in Kevin. Kevin was totally reliable, accessible, organized and patient. He is obviously so brilliant that he is able to take even the most complicated concepts and calmly break them down with reasonable explanations. Any time my son was feeling stress with his work, a session with Kevin would quickly alleviate his anxiety and give him the confidence to move forward. Beyond his intellectual skills, Kevin is a very kind, polite and approachable person. He relates extremely well with this age group. From a practical standpoint, Kevin was very flexible and accommodating - always willing to travel at times and to places which were convenient for my son's schedule. I cannot imagine a more wonderful science tutor than Kevin.
By far the best tutor I've ever had in general. I am a biology student at university and let's just say organic chemistry is not one of my stronger classes (I'm a 3.8 GPA student). Well, in orgo 1 I barely pulled out a B- and while in the beginning of orgo 2 I was having a huge problem with sn1, sn2, E1, and E2. Then I found Kevin on Wyzant and he has turned me around ten fold. I went from being unsure to answer a question in class to being the one the prof always looks at for an answer. And I went from a 66 on the first exam (class average was a 40) to the highest grade in the class on Exam 2 (I got an 85 but the class avg was a 60), and now my average in the class is an 84. Also I am looking to go into the dental field and take my DAT's to get into dental school and he has been so helpful with getting prepared. I would 100% recommend Kevin to anyone who is struggling in orgo or wants to get into medical or dental school!
Kevin is a great tutor, he knows what he is talking about therefore can explain the material to you easily. Really nice and patient!
At first I was pretty excited about going and meeting a tutor, since it was my first time. As soon as we started to work on chemistry questions, I felt very comfortable and was relaxed at the environment that we were working in. This is by far one of the best chemistry tutors you can get.
Kevin was a great help, even just having contact via email or phone. He totally understood what I needed help with and his feedback was really good. I couldn't believe having a tutor so far away would be this easy. I contacted him last minute and he made time for us since we were on a deadline. He was super patient (sending stuff through internet can sometimes be complicated) and understanding.
He is totally worth the $100 an hour. Don't think I'll find a tutor this good anywhere else.
Kevin has worked this summer to provide structure to my daughter's MCAT studies. He quickly assessed her weaknesses and addressed them at each lesson. Kevin met with her twice a week and was always able to be reached by text to set up mutually appropriate times to meet that worked within my daughter's schedule. Kevin was able to relate to my daughter in a way that gave her confidence and this was our main goal for hiring him. I have encouraged my daughter to contact him even if she is up at school if she has tutoring needs, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality tutoring that produces results. My daughter takes the test in September and feels as if she is ready. Thanks Kevin!
I contacted Kevin about a month before my DAT. I knew the timeline was tight, but Kevin was able to quickly identify my weaknesses, sort out a plan of action, and make a difference. I honestly feel that working with Kevin raised my score by 2 full points. Additionally, the areas that we had identified as weaknesses were the areas I scored the highest on the test. Thanks, Kevin!
Our experience with Kevin has been great. My son is doing much better on his tests and quizzes. I wish we had started this earlier. I recommend Kevin A. to anyone who needs help with pre-calculus.
I would highly recommend Kevin. He has been teaching my 17 year old son AP Chemistry. My son thinks highly of him too. Since we live quite far from Kevin, the classes have been over skype. I was skeptical initially as my son can be a dreamer. But he has been able to hold his attention and we have been seeing the difference in the grades. Thank you Kevin!
Kevin has provided much needed individual attention to my son's learning needs. His approach is serious yet not stuffy, which allows my son to learn in a comfortable environment. Thanks for working so diligently with my son!
Two weeks ago my daughter got a C on a test. Today she took another test and got a 94. You can't argue with the numbers! Big bonus: my daughter likes Kevin's patient, easy-to-understand approach.
Kevin is an extremely knowledgeable and helpful tutor. He has the ability to make even the most difficult concepts easier to understand! I highly recommend him!
Kevin has a very calm, low-key demeanor that helps lower the stress surrounding homework. He is very patient and promotes student confidence through his respectful, non-patronizing attitude and appropriately targeted praise when the student is doing something well or making independent progress. He provides plenty of practice problems with answers. He is prompt and courteous, and provides timely summaries of each lesson if desired. We have no complaints whatsoever.
I am very pleased with the manner in which Kevin has helped my son in his high school Chemistry and Food Science courses this past school year. He always takes the time to explain concepts thoroughly and present the subject matter in a way that he could readily understand it. He also uses outside sources (textbooks and problems) , when necessary, to supplement what is being covered in class. Kevin is understanding and flexible when it comes to the scheduling of the tutoring sessions. Kevin will continue to tutor my son this coming school year in Algebra II/Trigonometry and in his Food Science course. Kevin is very knowledgeable and a great science and math tutor.
Kevin was very organized and patient not to mention exceptionally qualified. He made sure Evan had the basics before he starts his O-Chem class and was extremely helpful in helping Evan to understand difficult concepts. Kevin went over many problems with Evan and made sure Evan was clear on where he did it right and where he needed work. We will certainly request to have Kevin continue to tutor Evan as he goes into the college semester.
Kevin tutored me in Organic Chemistry II for the entire summer, and he's probably one of the best tutors out there. He is extremely knowledgeable about this subject, surpassing the college level, and he is great at simplifying difficult concepts and explaining them. Moreover, he is incredibly patient and is willing to make sure you understand every concept before moving on, no matter how long it takes. He always came prepared with so much material and took the time to go through everything. Kevin's also very encouraging, and you can tell that he wants you to really grasp the material and to do well. I highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks so much for your help!
Kevin Anderson was a great tutor. He makes everything simple and understandable and is really good at assessing what you need help with and how best to help you. He comes prepared with materials and books to make the sessions valuable because the extra resources help you get to more topics. Great tutor!
My daughter was attending a very large university with over 200 students in the chemistry classes. Although she is a good student, she is a small classroom kind of learner and was having difficulty with chemistry taught in this fashion. I was skeptical that a private tutor that was not affiliated with her university would be able to help her. However, after a few sessions with Kevin, the material began to make sense to her. Ultimately, she ended up getting a B+ in Chemistry 2! We were very happy with Kevin's means of teaching. He explains everything clearly so the student is able to really understand the material and not just memorize it. In fact,we were so pleased with Kevin, we had him tutor my son the following semester in Chemistry 1. He ended up getting a B. With the cost of classes in universities these days, it is well worth the tutoring fee not to have to retake a class. Thanks so much Kevin for all your help!
Erase all your preconceptions of cocky, unsympathetic tutors that do not relate to students well. Most definitely not the case with Kevin. I often say (when speaking about my college professors anyway) that when people earn PhDs, more likely than not, all the ability to relate to people in layman's terms disappears. Once again, not the case with Kevin. Kevin is the type of tutor who will probe for where your weaknesses lie and then break the subject down so that you can easily follow. Moreover, he sure does wonders for rebuilding a student's confidence so that the issue of not believing one can do it does not hamper the student's progress. Having given me a thorough run through of both Organic Chemistry I and Physics I, I can honestly say he is a valuable tutor for both subjects. Highly,HIGHLY recommend him.
Very helpful, very patient, easy going. Works well around your schedule. Was able to explain difficult concepts clearly so it was easier for me to understand them. Put me on the path to understanding organic chemistry and being able to carry out reactions easier, as well as memorizing key concepts. Would definitely recommend!
I would like to take a moment to thank my Organic Chemistry tutor, Kevin, for all of his help and support. He was able to answer any question I presented and was capable of explaining complicated theories to improve my understanding of the material. Kevin is extremely organized and always remained in contact via e-mail. He was respectful of my time, never late, and always focused. I am happy to write that I currently have an A average in Organic Chemistry.
Kevin is an excellent tutor and I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with Chemistry or just wants to improve their grade. He carefully goes through each problem so you can understand it more clearly. My Chemistry Exam grades for this semester have significantly increased. Kevin also has very flexible times and is always willing to work around your schedule to find a suitable time for his students.
Kevin is a great tutor said my daughter. My daughter was happy and felt that she had a good understanding of the subject,after kevin took her through the problem areas. She expressed to me that it would be great to have Kevin as a chemistry teacher. She thanked me many times for finding Kevin. My daughter was happy that the holes in her chemistry notes had been filled and she was able to explain what she learned to her classmates who needed help.
I strongly recommend Kevin to other kids who may need help.
Kevin was an awesome tutor. First of all he was extremely flexible in scheduling. I was initially having a very hard time in Organic chemistry 2 and after visiting with Kevin regularly, I ended up doing very well in the class. He is very knowledgeable and will explain the material in as many ways as he can for you to understand. I liked working with him so much that I also went to him for my college level physics class and did very well in that class.
I would highly recommend him!
Kevin tutored me in basic Chemistry last summer and I could NOT have gotten through the course without his help! He's very patient is always willing to listen to problems and concerns regarding school work. He took as much time as needed to ensure that I properly understood concepts and was enthusiastic but not intimidating about presenting the course material in a manner that is feasible to the student. He takes into account the student's point of view and adapts his teaching methods to how the student learns. He's also a pleasure to work with. Kevin rocks!
I had several lessons with Kevin and he is a wonderful teacher. He is very knowlegeable in the subject as well as a flexible with time and place. Thanks Kevin.
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.
