About Kevin

I am a very motivated Ph.D. graduate with 3+ years of post doc experience in a broad range of study. I just moved back from London after doing a post-doc at Imperial College London in the area of Bioengineering and Chemical Physics. I am now working at the Joint Genome Institute (DOE Lawrence Berkeley National Lab) and helping students as much as I can learn science, math, and engineering (teaching is a passion!)

I have taken and can assist with classes in nearly all the engineering disciplines (BME, MEM, ECE, etc.), Biology, Math, Psychology, Anthropology, Chemistry, Physics, and more. I have a MS degree in three Engineering majors including: Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. I have mentored students during my program and love being able to give advice and teach others. Since I have a diverse background, I think I can help almost anyone become excited about a topic and motivate them to get a good grade.

I love mentoring and teaching because I myself was very undecided about what major I was going to be when I entered college. Nevertheless, I tried my hardest in all my classes and that opened up the door to do whatever I wanted to do. I have a strong desire for everyone to follow their passion and succeed, especially when it comes to their education!

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.

MATLAB

I have learned most of my MATLAB in doing ~2 years of research in a computational neuro-engineering lab where I developed MATLAB algorithms and user interfaces. After that I have taken 3-4 computational mathematics classes that used MATLAB extensively. I have tutored two people in MATLAB within the past three years, and I have been able to help them significantly.

Very Informative — I asked Kevin for help for my daughter in her Chemistry and Biology classes. My daughter indicated that she liked his patience and how he was able to explain to her the concepts that she missed out on, as well as test taking techniques. I am very pleased with his service. Great tutor! ...
