Hello, my name is Kevin. I'm a recent graduate of King's College in Wilkes Barre, PA, with a degree in Professional Writing. I have experience tutoring in both high school and college essay writing, and I currently write and edit for a small newspaper. I love writing, especially creatively (I'm working on a novel at the moment). Helping others to be better writers, and better students in general, is my goal.
While tutoring, I first help to clarify the student's needs. This includes figuring out what they are working on-- papers, assignments, projects, studying for tests, etc.-- and then determining how best to help them complete that task well. In order to do this, we will need to identify the student's particular strengths and weaknesses, build upon those strengths and shore up the weaknesses. From there, we can come up with a plan of action, and walk through each step together.
No two students are alike; each person has their own unique way of learning, of seeing the world. This is why one-on-one tutoring is such a great opportunity-- personal, individualized support allows each student to learn in their own way, instead of trying to fit into the more rigid system used in most classrooms. By bringing a commitment to the individual, I am able to help each student reach their full potential.
