About Kevin


Bio

You're looking for a tutor because you need personalized attention, not another by-the-book description of how people learn. I can provide unique learning systems, not the same old same old.

[As an example, here's one for free: when proofreading your own writing, always do so aloud; imagine someone has just handed you your essay and you are on your way to the stage to deliver it word for word to an audience -- as you read it for the first time.

You're looking for a tutor because you need personalized attention, not another by-the-book description of how people learn. I can provide unique learning systems, not the same old same old.

[As an example, here's one for free: when proofreading your own writing, always do so aloud; imagine someone has just handed you your essay and you are on your way to the stage to deliver it word for word to an audience -- as you read it for the first time. This is a proven system, the proof being the enthusiasm for this method exhibited by students I have tutored, for spotting mistakes, helping with clarity, getting your point across, and constructing sentences and paragraphs].

I graduated from Cal State Channel Islands in May (2013) with a degree in English, and studies in Human Communication. My tutoring methods focus on communicating, not reading to a student and expecting them to remember; they focus on understanding subject matter, not memorizing for tests and then dropping the information. My methods are a combination of my experience with tutoring and my two years as a driving instructor, among many other observations.

I have many other helpful education and study practices ready to go and ready to explain. Children and teens respond quite well to my methods. Allow me the opportunity to improve your student's outlook on their learning ability, as well as their ability to utilize what they already know. Together we can show your student how valuable and entertaining learning can be.
