About Kapo

I have a PhD in hydrogeology, a Master in Environmental sciences and a Bachelor of Science in Geology. I specialize in groundwater modeling which requires maths and programming. I currently work for a consulting company as a groundwater modeler.
All my life I have been passionate about learning and teaching science. I taught biology, geology and botany at the high school level and geology at the university. I'm trying tutoring for the first time, but I have tutored relatives for many years and have enjoyed it.

I love maths and I apply math daily in my current job. So I can give practical examples about how to apply math in real life and make it simple.

Geology is my profession and my passion. I enjoy sharing my knowledge about it.

I feel like physics is everywhere I look, it is the language of the universe.

I'm a native French speaker. I studied in French from elementary school to my master's degree.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

In my day job as a groundwater modeler I use a lot of math (calculus). So I have maintain a very good proficiency in math in general and calculus in particular. Over the years I have taught friends and relative and have enjoyed it very much.

French

I'm a native French speaker. I have studied most of my life in French (elementary to my master). I have been living in the US for 16 years now so I have a good command of both English and French.

R

I started using R in the early 2000s (16 years ago) and have gathered tremendous experience in it. I also have nine data science certificates from John Hopkins University focused on using R for data analysis.

Great tutor

My son is doing Calculus, he is very patient and insightful. Reviews lesson plan before our meetings. Prepared, encourages questions from student. Would definitely recommend him.
