About Kevin

I am a premedical student majoring in biochemistry at a state university. I focus on chemistry and mathematics in my tutoring. I have tutored chemistry and mathematics at both the high school and college levels for over two years with great success. I recently took the MCAT, scoring 11/11/9, and can offer advice and pointers on how to study and prepare.

As everyone learns in a different manner, I focus on teaching new ways to approach problems. These methods can be more broadly applied to most disciplines, but are integral to both the sciences and math. I also believe a firm grasp of the basics is necessary to succeed in science and math. These are subjects that build upward on themselves, and without a strong foundation, it can be difficult to move upward to the more challenging topics. I'll often use models and visual aids to help explain a topic when words can't do it justice. My goal is to remove the fear and confusion that people face when attempting difficult questions. I do this by equipping them with the knowledge and methods they need to attack the question.

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.

Chemistry

I am currently a biochemistry major. I have had over four years of experience tutoring chemistry at both the high school and college levels. Having a firm grasp of the basic concepts presented in general chemistry is key to succeeding when moving forward in this field.
