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.

Additional details:

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.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

My interest in elementary math education developed after having met too many algebra and geometry students struggling with foundation-level concepts and skills. Most teachers lack mathematical expertise outside of their particular grade level and are therefore limited in their capacity to help your child connect one topic to another in a coherent way. I, on the other hand, have a decade of experience working with a wide variety of math students and I know which concepts and skills are most important for your child's academic success. I work with elementary math students starting at the 5th grade level.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring algebra and integrated math and I am highly skilled at helping students relate to algebraic concepts and methods. I have taught complete algebra courses to home-schooled and summer school students, so if you are interested in having your child take (or retake) algebra 1 for credit, please contact me so we can discuss your options.
Algebra 2,

I have nearly a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring algebra 2 and integrated math. I have taught complete algebra 2 courses to home-schooled students, so if you are interested in having your child take or retake algebra 2 for high school credit, please contact me so we can discuss your options. I have passed all the relevant California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) in this area.
Calculus,

Calculus

My experience with this subject has mainly focused on helping students with AP calculus, but I have also worked with many college students taking business calculus and calculus I at RCC, Cal Baptist, La Sierra, and a few other colleges. I've got lots of extra worksheets, released exam questions, practice tests, and a calculus textbook collection to help you power through this subject.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Over the years I have helped dozens of students with AP chemistry, honors and regular chemistry, and general chemistry at RCC and Cal Baptist (especially pre-nursing and pre-physician assistant students). I have had terrific success preparing students for both the AP exam and the SAT chemistry subject tests. I've got a file cabinet filled with handouts, problem sets, practice tests, and released exam questions to help you prepare.
Geometry,

Geometry

I have nearly a decade of professional experience tutoring geometry and I am highly skilled at helping students relate to geometric concepts and problems. I have taught and coached complete UC-approved geometry courses to home school students and student-athletes. If you are interested in having your child take geometry for credit (or retake it for a better grade), please contact me so we can discuss your options.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

If your child has been struggling with Common Core prealgebra, please contact me because I am great at helping students "connect" to math, allowing them to begin constructing the solid mathematical foundation they'll need for their future academic success. This class encompasses a diversity of concepts, but I have a long track record of helping students relate to math in ways that can transform frustrated students into happy students.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have a decade of professional experience working with high school and college precalculus and trigonometry students. My library contains several popular precalculus textbooks, and I have collected a great number of worksheets, handouts, and formula sheets to help students effectively navigate this class.
SAT Math

SAT Math

I have nearly a decade of professional experience teaching SAT math test prep. I am expert at teaching the exam's math content along with practical and effective test-taking strategies. For students dedicated to a more structured program of study, I create an individualized, goal-oriented plan, complete with periodic practice exams to monitor progress. My methods deliver dramatic score increases. Dozens of my students have boosted their math scores well into the 700s and, of course, I've had the pleasure of helping create perfect 800 scorers. Regularly scheduled lessons over weeks or months is recommended because it allows the student adequate time to master the concepts and strategies that maximize performance. Please contact me right away if: (1) your child cares about his or her SAT score, but needs motivation to study; or (2) your child struggles with anxiety or lacks confidence during exams; or (3) your child is deficient in any SAT math content area; or (4) your child is trying to achieve a specific score goal; or (5) you would like your child to maximize his or her SAT math Level 1 or Level 2 subject test score.

With the proper combination of dedicated practice along with guidance from an experienced coach, students can dramatically improve their ACT scores. I know what works to boost ACT scores thanks to 9+ years of professional test prep experience. Not only am I expert at teaching the exam's math content, but I am also very skilled at delivering effective score-boosting strategies and techniques. And yes, I have helped students achieve a perfect ACT math score of 36. For serious students I typically administer a diagnostic test and create a personalized, goal-oriented plan of study, complete with regularly scheduled full-length practice exams. Longer-term preparation and practice is recommended because it allows the student adequate time to master the strategies and concepts that optimize performance.

Amazing!

Kevin is the Best! His tutoring skills are amazing. My daughter has already shown much improvement in math sense being tutored by Kevin. She recently took a big math test and received her best score ever. Much of it to do with the help of Kevin. I am so thankful we found Kevin. He is the perfect tutor for our daughter. 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

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 , 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

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!

Mindy, 4 lessons with Kevin

Excellent Tutor!

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

Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry

Kevin was very knowledgeable about the subject and made the lessons easy to understand. He made sure I understood everything before he moved on. He's very patient and professional. He's a great tutor and I highly recommend him!!! THANK YOU KEVIN!

Cynthia , 8 lessons with Kevin

The best

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 homework

Laura, 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.
