My passion is to work with students of all ages (Middle School through Graduate Programs) in Science and Math. My goal is to teach/mentor/inspire and help students gain confidence in the below subjects.

I currently tutor Chemistry and Chemistry AP, Organic Chemistry, MCAT, DAT, Physics, Physics AP, Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Calculus courses to Middle/High School and College/Graduate students.

I have a specific passion for Mentoring and helping Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental students get into Medical/Dental School.

My posted hours are my preferred times, however I am somewhat flexible and willing to work around your schedule. I am available to do Web-Cam Internet tutoring, so email me to find out more information. I do in person tutoring in areas as far south as Edison, New Jersey and as far North as Northern Bergen County, schedule and travel permitting. I do not travel into NYC for tutoring unless my schedule permits.

I look forward to helping you pass your Chemistry/Physics and Math courses!

My educational background is B.S. in Professional Chemistry (Chemistry Major, Math and Physics Minors) from Eastern Michigan University, an M.S. from Michigan State University and a Ph.D.in Organic Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to becoming a full time Mentor/Tutor, I worked 4 years in the Pharmaceutical Business in New Jersey.

My cancellation policy is 12 hours in advance and at this point in time due to high demand - I do charge for travel that takes longer than 15 minutes from the Montclair - New Jersey area.

Science:

Algebra 1

The concepts in Algebra 1 are essential to future success in High School and the Sciences. I help students gain confidence in math concepts and problem solving and enjoy seeing students succeed with this material.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 tutoring focuses on problem solving from the basic problems up to the more challenging multi-step problems. I help students gain confidence in the material, which will help them succeed in future math courses.

Calculus

I have a passion for working with students in High School and College on High level Calculus material, including Calculus AP AB material.

Chemistry

I tutor College Level General Chemistry and High School Chemistry and Chemistry AP courses. My passion is to help students understand the value of thinking about Chemistry and Scientific Principals, while including applications to everyday life. I help students gain confidence in problem solving.

Dentistry

I have been tutoring DAT (Dental Admissions Test) preparation in the Sciences (Organic Chemistry, General Chemistry, Quantitative Analysis) for the last 3 years with success in helping students achieve high grades and ultimately get into Dental School. I have a Ph.D.in Organic Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

MCAT

I have tutored students in preparing for MCAT's for the last year and half and would like to request that you add this to my subject list.

I focus specifically on the Physics, Math and/or Chemistry portion of the exam. These are the most critical to most Pre-Med students. I gear my tutoring towards specific questions and techniques in answering the multiple choice questions.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from MIT and work as an Organic Chemistry in the Pharmaceutical Industry. I have been tutoring Organic Chemistry for the last 2 years and have extensive experience working with students achieve excellent grades. My specific passion is working with Pre-Med/Dental and Science Majors with this challenging material.

Physics

I tutor College Level Physics, as well as High School Physics and Physics AP courses. My passion is to work with students on this material and help them gain confidence in the conceptual as well as mathematical principals of Physics.

Prealgebra

My passion is to help students gain confidence in basic math principals. I do this by showing students how to approach the problem and can generally explain multiple approaches. Practice makes perfect in Math and this is the strategy I take with students.

Precalculus

Pre-Calculus is one of the most challenging courses in HS. I work one-on-one with students helping them gain confidence in the material. I find that practicing multiple problems and approaches is key to becoming efficient and successful in Pre-Calc.

Track & Field

I ran middle distance/long distance in both track and field and cross country in high school and college. Post college, I have trained and ran 2 marathons with a personal best time of 3:03.

I can help you devise training programs to reach your goals in road racing, track and field and cross country.

Unbelievably fantastic tutor! 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 pa ...
