About Kevin

I have been teaching chess for 14 years to well over 300 students in the community and have given the students the opportunity to compete National, State & local chess tournaments. Many of my chess students have achieved success by receiving many trophies and medals for their achievements as well as improve their critical thinking, focus, and problem solving skills.

I have tutored many students in math and reading and have applied my knowledge of study skills to enable my students to succeed in math, reading and many other areas.

I enjoy seeing my students succeed as I know this will be a valuable tool for them in their future.

Although I do have a 36 hour cancellation policy in place I am willing to provide make up sessions.

Additionally tutoring sessions can be done at a location of your choosing.

Approved subjects

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.

Chess

I have been teaching chess to children ages 5-17 for 14 years. In the 2013 California State Championship our chess team placed in the top 5 in the K-1, K-3, K-6 & K-8 sections. As a part of my chess tutoring, emphasis is placed on improving critical thinking, problem solving & focus skills as well as developing strategical & tactical skills.

I help students get familiar with how to use a dictionary to clear up misunderstood words. I help students fully understand the word by looking up the meaning of the word in the dictionary and using the word in sentences till the word is fully understood. My students have successfully increased their vocabulary by use of this method of clearing misunderstood words.
