I have over a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring mathematics and SAT test prep. Over the years I have developed very effective techniques and strategies for working with students, and I have become very skilled at individualizing my instruction according to each student's unique needs, goals, and abilities. I explain math concepts and problems in simple, step-by-step ways that help students understand and remember. My students experience dramatic improvements in their problem-solving skills, academic performance, confidence, and SAT test scores.

As an experienced professional educator, I work very hard to help my students realize their greatest improvement. For potential regular-schedule clients, I typically request a no-charge interview/consultation with the student (and parent, as applicable) to ensure the best possible tutoring arrangement.

Note: for in-person lessons, I teach and tutor only from my professional office which provides a secure, convenient, and efficient learning environment for my students and their families. My office is complete with dry erase boards, testing rooms, vending machines, waiting areas, WiFi, security monitoring, textbook library, worksheets/handouts, practice tests, and more.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

An excellent tutor!

Kevin is a fantastic tutor. My son had numerous lessons with Kevin for the SAT Math Level II and his score increased over 150 points! He also helped him review for the regular math section of the SATs. Kevin is patient and knowledgeable and offered him a ton of practice problems. He truly cared about my son’s progress!

Excellent SAT Math Tutor

My son is fairly intelligent but needed a bit of a refresher with SAT math. Kevin is an excellent tutor. He was very accommodating and followed-up promptly. Kevin is through and was able to help him with many different math problems. I believe my son's math score will be up 100 points with just two sessions. He was super confident SAT exam day thanks to Kevin!

Happy Camper

My daughter actually smiles before and after tutoring. This brings me joy. Math has never been easy or fun for her so the smile speaks volumes.

Maria , 63 lessons with Kevin

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kevin has really helped my daughter, filling in knowledge gaps from her previous math classes. He's patient, very knowledgeable about math, the SAT, and college admissions. My daughter started working with Kevin after a disappointing PSAT score in sophomore year. I was so impressed at our first meeting, when he asked about her SAT goals, and college plans, and then tailored the sessions to meet her goals. He keeps up with the latest changes on the SAT and has been very proactive in preparing my daughter for the rigor of her upcoming IB math. Highly recommend him!

Tasha, 14 lessons with Kevin

Excellent Tutor!

Kevin is an amazing tutor and is very patient! Highly recommended! He makes thing so easy to understand. I've worked with him numerous times and I always feel like I understand clearly how to solve problems on my own once I get home to practice. I'm taking an accelerated course, and I wouldn't be surviving without him!
