Hello! I am currently a college student starting my Junior year in Computer Science. Throughout my journey of being a student, I have always disliked the standardization of curriculum, as understanding material is a personal experience that varies from student to student. As a result, to provide others with better learning experiences, it became a hobby of mine to instruct struggling students on subjects that I have proficiency of. I adjust my tutoring style in accordance to the need of the tutee, and analyze their strengths and weaknesses in order to provide a well-rounded learning experience. Hopefully, my clients will find renewed interest in difficult topics/subjects as I attempt to adapt the curriculum into something that is directly catered not to students, but THE student.

In my experience of taking math classes all the way up to Calculus 2, I have picked up tips and tricks to aid with the understanding of the material. Personally speaking, I feel that there is no better way to learn than from another person who has "been through and done that". Due to my comparatively extensive experience in math, I may be able to limit the frustration of (for example) learning asymptotes in Algebra 2, and give a rundown of the significance of it in higher level math; therefore, helping the student grasp a fuller picture of the topic rather than the seeming uselessness of finding dotted lines.

Despite being a STEM major, writing is something I am extremely passionate about. In my extensive experience working in the writing center, I have instructed students from the conception of ideas to the submission of the paper, and am the go-to person if my peers need anything proofread. The way I approach this is creating an interactive activity where the student can express their thoughts and ideas, and where I can provide valuable insight that may ignite further critical thinking. It is always such a delight to witness my students gain independence, and obtain the confidence to thrive and excel at learning.

Nice and dedicated tutor

Kevin helped my son to improve in English grammar and essay writing. They got along well and he was able to explain in a useful way. Kevin also came prepared for the subjects discussed upfront and even brought a white board to be able to explain in a visual way.

Christina, 1 lesson with Kevin

Funny and knowledge tutor

Mr. Kevin is quite reliable and he is quick to notice when he makes mistakes. This review will be split between how he tutors and how his personality is. Personality: I found him quite funny and he is easy to talk to. He doesn't judge someone based on if they do or do not know the answer. He also makes mistakes and feels bad when he misguides someone. Since, I had him for ACT English, we did a lot of practice tests. It did a couple of tests, to find out what worked out for me. He was quite flexible in his teaching methods. Not hesitating to disagree with me or agree with me. How he tutors: I can't speak for how he tutors for other subjects but when I had him for ACT English, I learned quite a bit. He gives lots of examples and he gives advice on how to tackle a problem. He has offered to teach me some new ways to break down sentences and how to decide what is important in a passage. I quite enjoyed him, and here's to hoping my ACT school goes up.

Knowledgeable and skilled Tutor

My daughter has been working with Kevin for a little bit now and she has definitely gained skill and confidence in Pre-Algebra. She has worked with quite a few tutors and always struggled with anxiety and easing into the work. It took a few sessions and she enjoys her sessions with him and has learned a great deal.

Great teacher!

Kevin is a great teacher in helping my son comprehend and organize his English writing assignments. He sets a very positive example that my son can follow. My son’s grades have been improving- thanks to Kevin’s tutoring sessions. At the same time, my son enjoys his sessions.

We love Kevin!

My 8th grader is behind in math and genuinely hates it due to her having ADD and dyscalculia. We have tried so many different math programs with no luck. But now that she is being tutored by Kevin she seems so much more relaxed and open to learning and doing her work! Kevin is extremely patient, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. It makes for a wonderful learning environment.

Knowledgeable, Patient and Friendly Tutor

Kevin was a godsend and an amazing tutor! He has been teaching my two children online on a weekly basis on Math and English for many months now and I’m very impressed of his teaching style and his good working altitude. He is very knowledgeable, patient, caring, and excellent with young children. Both of my children really connected with Kevin and think he’s very helpful. They’re much more confident about their academic work now. I would definitely recommend Kevin for any of your tutoring needs. Thank you, Kevin!
