Bio

I have over a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring mathematics and SAT and ACT 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 have over a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring mathematics and SAT and ACT 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 work hard to help my students realize their greatest potential, so I expect each of my students engages in the learning process with their best effort. For potential regular-schedule clients, I request a no-charge interview/consultation with both student and parent (as applicable) to ensure the best possible tutoring arrangement.

I teach and tutor from my professional office in Riverside, CA, which provides a distraction-free, secure, convenient, and very efficient learning environment. My office is complete with dry erase boards, testing rooms, vending machines, waiting areas, and cabinets filled with a wide selection of worksheets/handouts, practice tests, and more.

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

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have over a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring algebra and all levels of integrated math. I am expertly skilled at helping students learn algebraic concepts and techniques, and I am very familiar with the new common core curriculum and integrated approaches to math. I also have extensive experience as a SAT and ACT math instructor, so I offer additional expertise in delivering effective methods and strategies for solving the algebra-based problems found on these exams as well.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have over a decade of professional experience teaching and tutoring algebra 2 and integrated math levels 1, 2, and 3. I am highly skilled at explaining algebraic concepts and techniques, and since I also have extensive experience as a SAT and ACT math instructor, I offer a special expertise in delivering effective methods and strategies for solving the algebra-based problems found on these exams as well.
Calculus,

Calculus

My experience with this subject has focused mainly on helping students with AP calculus AB and BC, but I have also worked with many college students taking business calculus and calculus I at RCC, Cal Baptist, CSUSB, La Sierra, and a few other colleges. I've got lots of extra worksheets, a huge amount of released exams and exam questions, practice tests, and a collection of calculus textbooks 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. Precalculus covers a wide breadth of topics, but as an experienced math and test-prep tutor, I know which concepts are most important for a student's future academic success. My library contains several popular precalculus textbooks, and I have accumulated a great selection of worksheets, handouts, and formula sheets to help students effectively navigate this class.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

With over a decade of professional experience as a full-time math tutor and SAT math instructor, I offer a rare level of expertise in coaching the SAT's math concepts and strategies. I've helped hundreds of SAT students, many just like you (or your child), achieve dramatic score increases. I've even helped students who initially claimed they were "terrible at math" to boost their math scores to the 94th percentile or better. After first determining your child's strengths and weaknesses, we quickly get to the business at hand: mastering the test's content while simultaneously refining test-taking skills. I deliver clearly explained, targeted mini-lessons based on the types of problems you or your child have been struggling to grasp. For serious students, the program will include lots of homework exercises. You will learn the most effective and efficient ways of approaching each type of problem, and I'll help you to avoid common pitfalls and careless errors. To monitor progress, build endurance, and for additional practice, I periodically administer full-length, timed practice exams. I also love helping students prepare for the SAT math subject tests, both levels 1 and 2. Let's take your SAT score to the next level! For the best results, I recommend students begin their preparation early. Regularly scheduled lessons over weeks, or sometimes even several months, will ensure adequate time to master the concepts and strategies that maximize performance.

Excellent SAT Prep!

My son is soaring in his mathematical quest to improve his SAT score. He his actually looking forward to taking his upcoming SAT exam after tutoring with Kevin. He was able to assess my sons weakness and improve his outlook on testing for an increased score. Very much appreciated and very highly recommended...

Jonathan, 7 lessons with Kevin

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, 111 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 , 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!

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.
