About Kevin

Hi, my name is Kevin. I was a Lecturer and a Teaching Assistant at the Ohio State University for physics and love teaching in a way that gets students to explore the field. I frequently held office hours where students (many not even in my class) voluntarily attended and learned a lot. I teach like a guide where I use a mixture of the Socratic Method and teaching by example in an informal setting. I emphasize deliberate practice where PERFECT practice makes perfect. I can show you the way, but the act of discovering still lies with you.

For my qualifications, I got a B.S. in Physics and Pure Math, and an M.S. in Physics. I transferred to the PhD program in Cognitive Psychology at OSU, but dropped out as I am now more interested in a career in machine learning. I'm currently in the process of making a career change from traditional science (physics, math, cognitive psychology) to data science or software engineering. I choose to tutor, because I find it fulfilling and need a way to make a living. I've picked up most of my statistical knowledge from several graduate level courses. I am mostly self taught in Python and R.

Feel free to contact me and see if I can be of any help!

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.
