About Kevin

I'm a graduate student at Caltech working toward my PhD in physics (went to MIT as an undergraduate). Since high school, I've had a passion for teaching, and have volunteered as a teaching assistant for more than ten courses during my time in high school and college. My teaching style places an emphasis on developing an intellectual curiosity for the subject matter at hand, as I typically find that learning something becomes infinitely easier when one is actually interested/curious about it. Thus, if you receive lessons from me, not only will the instruction emphasize the mechanics of the material you want to learn, but also why it is interesting material and the reason you should care about it (beyond needing it to succeed in your course).

I'm happy to tutor a wide range of subjects. Physics is my forte, but that also means I'm mathematically adept enough (I hope) to tackle most high school level mathematics. I also really enjoy literature/philosophy, and would be happy to tutor in these subject areas as well (I have extensive TAing experience with both).

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.

ACT Science

I'm working on my PhD in physics, so I'm quite familiar with the nuances of the scientific method, which is largely what the ACT Science section focuses on.

Algebra 1

I've taken linear algebra, differential equations, and multi-variable calculus at MIT, so I'm quite well versed in high school level mathematics (since you frequently use the basics when you engage in more complicated calculations).

Algebra 2

I've taken linear algebra, differential equations, and multi-variable calculus at MIT, so I'm quite well versed in high school level mathematics (since you frequently use the basics when you engage in more complicated calculations). I am also working on my PhD.

Biology

I took 7.013, the introductory biology course at MIT, which is quite rigorous and broad.

Calculus

I've taken linear algebra, differential equations, and multi-variable calculus at MIT, so I'm quite well versed in mathematics.

Geometry

I've taken linear algebra, differential equations, and multi-variable calculus at MIT, so I'm quite well versed in high school level mathematics (since you frequently use the basics when you engage in more complicated calculations). I earned a bachelors degree in physics from MIT, and am currently working on my PhD.

impressively amazing

He is an amazing tutor ! He is very kind, very polite, and he came on time. I met so many tutors before, but he is the most talented. He is just so smart! He taught me all the tools and strategies that I need for trigonometry . On top of that, he shown me the "beauty" of math; he made Math be more interesting to me ! He is the best ! Thank you Kevin !
