About Kevin

I graduated with my degree in Physics from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where I then stayed for an additional year to get my teaching credential. I am currently a high school Physics teacher and absolutely love my job. What I enjoy most about my job is having the opportunity to help students realize their maximum potential in all aspects of life--academic or not.

My goal for all students is improvement. I focus on the implementation and fostering of a growth mindset. By approaching all lessons with a growth mindset, students will continuously improve, regardless of their current level of ability. I have found that this approach is very successful in my classroom and with all students that I tutor one-on-one.

My availability is limited to evenings on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and weekends from 11am to 6 pm.

I specialize in tutoring Physics, as it is the subject that I teach every day. Along with my degree in Physics, my experience in teaching physics is most valuable, as I have formal training in techniques for teaching science.

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you reach and surpass your goals!

Great tutor!

We went over 5 problems that were fairly hard and definitely above my head. By the end, I felt confident that I knew how to solve them and ones like them or at least tackle them and get together partial credit. I am definitely more prepared for my final now! Kevin also gave me some test-taking advice/strategies that are super helpful.
