I have a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring mathematics and SAT/ACT test preparation. Over the years I have developed very effective strategies and techniques for working with students, and I have become very skilled at individualizing my instruction according to each student's unique needs, goals, and abilities. My students experience dramatic improvements in academic performance, confidence, and SAT and ACT test scores. I am quite confident I am one of the best math and test prep tutors you can find anywhere.
Each of my students receives my best effort and commitment to their success, both in and out of the classroom. I am a highly experienced professional educator, and since I work very hard to help my students realize their greatest potential, I expect each student engage in the learning process with their best effort. For potential regular-schedule clients, I typically request a no-charge in-person or online interview/consultation with both parent and student to ensure the best possible tutoring arrangement. I expect my students and their parents take tutoring and test prep seriously, and I expect my clients treat appointments with me just like appointments with any other skilled professional, such as a doctor or lawyer.
NOTE: For in-person lessons I teach and tutor from my professional office which provides a secure, convenient, and efficient learning environment for my students and their parents. My office is complete with dry erase boards, testing rooms, vending machines, coffee, waiting areas, WiFi, security monitoring, textbook library, worksheets/handouts, practice tests, and more. For all my regular-schedule students I am available by text message between tutoring sessions.
Please contact me if you have any questions or if you are ready to transform your educational experience.
I can help with IB mathematics (International Baccalaureate), including both SL and HL levels, and I am fantastic at helping students with integrated math, including integrated math 1, integrated math 2, and integrated math 3.
I am a veteran of the United States Army.
I have passed the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) in math and chemistry. I hold a valid Certificate of Clearance along with a valid substitute teaching permit, each issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

Knowledgeable, patient and encouraging
Kevin is fantastic, he is patient, encouraging, knowledgeable and fun. He is always very invested in the success of his students. My sons have both gone to Kevin for a few years now and we couldn't be more satisfied. Kevin was able to cater to our sons different abilities in math, perfectly ensuring the tutoring sessions were fun and enjoyable while also making sure they made good progress at the right pace and within their comfort levels. Kevin was instrumental in assisting my sons in scoring higher on their SAT's which no doubt played a role in them being accepted to Whittier College and UCLA. I can't recommend Kevin highly enough.Pat, 9 lessons with Kevin

Kevin is a champion for her success!Julie, 77 lessons with Kevin
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!Robert, 2 lessons with Kevin
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 , 44 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
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!Mindy, 4 lessons with Kevin
Meeting with Kevin to assist my daughter Jonelle with her Algebra 1 course is an example of what it takes to make a difference. Jonelle was failing her algebra course because she did not understand the fundamentals of the subject. However having the weekly tutoring with Kevin made a tremendous impact. Jonelle's attitude and confidence in the subject went from a D to C and eventually a B grade. Today she is not frustrated but has demonstrated a good grasp and command of the subject. This is all because Kevin took the time to work with her. I am extremely grateful to him. Thanks again. I would recommend him highly to any parents of kids thats having a real difficult time in math.Yvonne, 61 lessons with Kevin

My daughter had a panic with a math test coming up and asked for me to setup a tutoring session. Kevin was able to get us in. Went over her math questions. Kevin was able to show her easier ways of solving problems. Went straight home and was able to do her math homeworkLaura, 8 lessons with Kevin
Excellent in teaching his knowledge of math
Kevin has been my daughter's math tutor/instructor for the past 7 months. We were referred to him through another client. He has instructed my daughter through Algebra and Geometry. We no longer plan to take math classes through her high school and have opted to take online classes with Kevin as her primary instructor. He allows the material to go at her own pace while still challenging her to keep up and typical semester pace. Not only do Kevin's capabilities apply to math, he is able to assist students with the ACT/SAT test prep. We have referred Kevin to multiple friends and they are very satisfied with Kevin's abilities to assist their child. He's worth every penny of investment in our daughter's future.Angelina, 145 lessons with Kevin
