About Taylor


Bio

Hi! My name is Taylor and the many students I have worked with throughout my teaching career have known me simply as Mr. K. I have developed a reputation as a very charismatic and engaging teacher of both math and science, with an ability to bring even the most challenging concepts down to earth and into the student’s comfort zone.

Hi! My name is Taylor and the many students I have worked with throughout my teaching career have known me simply as Mr. K. I have developed a reputation as a very charismatic and engaging teacher of both math and science, with an ability to bring even the most challenging concepts down to earth and into the student’s comfort zone. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Materials Engineering from UC Davis, and I hold two current California teaching credentials, in Mathematics and Agriculture, with my graduate coursework in education completed at Brandman University. I have also passed the CSET exams in general science and physics, authorizing me to teach in California in those subject areas as well.

Teaching has always been a passion for me and I have been tutoring for over 10 years, going back to my days as an undergraduate college student. I also have work experience in the aviation industry, but turned my career to teaching full time in 2014. I currently work for a charter academy in Northern California where I have the privilege of working with a small but tight-knit student body, which allows me to develop close working relationships with my students and really understand what each individual needs in order to be successful. I bring this approach to my tutoring work as well, involving ongoing goal-setting, assessment and feedback to ensure that I am adapting to the student and maximizing the returns from our sessions.

In addition to my Engineering degree, I have completed a graduate program in Mathematics Education, earning a California single-subject teaching credential for secondary mathematics, which authorizes me to teach all middle-school and high school mathematics topics up through Calculus. I have four years experience teaching high school mathematics full-time, and I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and AP Statistics during this time. I also have experience tutoring Calculus and advanced math subjects such as differential equations at the community college level. I am an expert in working with technology tools such as MS Excel, Desmos, and graphing calculators to bring students closer to the content and help them develop valuable skills.

My engineering background and lifelong personal interest in science, combined with 4 years of science teaching experience, make me a highly qualified science tutor. I have also passed California’s rigorous CSET exams for teachers in general science and Physics, resulting in a statewide authorization to teach these subjects in middle school and high school classrooms. I am currently in my fourth year of teaching a University of California A-G approved high school Physics course, and I am in my first year of teaching a high school Ag Chemistry course.

I always look forward to working with new students of all ages. Whatever your goals are, I am here to help you overcome your current challenges in math and science, big or small. Feel free to reach out to me at any time!

Bravo! We booked for a session the next day

Taylor was extremely patient. We had a few technical glitches that had nothing to do with him and each time we logged back in he was still there waiting patiently. My son is not easy to impress but he learned so much from this tutor. Don’t hesitate if you need Statistics help. He is the man! Thank you!

Sherrine, 3 lessons with Taylor

Taylor is a very knowledgeable Algebra II teacher!

Taylor has been very helpful throughout our three Algebra II tutoring sessions. He has helped me understand concepts to a greater extent. I am able to complete all assignments with more understanding and have more confidence in class.

Ethan, 6 lessons with Taylor

You were amazing!

My son said that Taylor taught him. Taylor knows how to break down the concepts so they actually make sense. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has AP stat, and we will continue using him until the AP exam is over.

Nancy , 26 lessons with Taylor

AP Stats

Taylor is always extremely helpfull and clearly explains the lesson to my daughter. As a result, my daughter earned 100% on her exam and is on point to complete AP Stats in her senior year of HS.

Diane, 14 lessons with Taylor

Smart, patient, thorough, and caring.

Taylor went in depth helping me with problems that I didn't understand. He made sure to write all of the steps for me. He showed me how to do the problems on the calculator. Taylor is very helpful and he made sure that I didn't have any questions about what he was teaching me.

Katie , 1 lesson with Taylor

Patient

He works very well with my children. He is patient and thorough and takes time to explain. He is always accommodating with his schedule and able to reschedule when needed.

Roberta, 14 lessons with Taylor

Thorough tutor

Very helpful. My college kid has Statistics and felt that Taylor was patient and “knows his stuff”. We will use his help again soon. We’ll see what the test score is! Fingers crossed! Thank you.

Liz, 1 lesson with Taylor

Great Tutor with Very Easy to Understand Teaching

He put everything that was confusing me in the classroom and simplified it. Helped a lot with what I didn’t understand.

Joe, 1 lesson with Taylor

Super Helpful

Taylor is a beast at math and science. Knew every question I asked immediately and was incredibly helpful and thorough. Already scheduled another session with him for my Science CSET coming up.

Carson, 3 lessons with Taylor

Very knowledgeable and helpful

Mr. K helped my son the night before his physics final with an awesome marathon study session to get him ready for the big test. Thank you for your perserverance and patience!
