About Kevin

I was born and raised in Northern Virginia just outside of Washington, D.C. After high school, I moved to North Carolina and attained my Associate's degree from Cape Fear Community College. I worked in the restaurant business for 8 years in various capacities, but soon grew tired of the long hours and unfulfilling lifestyle. I then made the decision to move to Colorado. While in Colorado, I went back to attain my Bachelor's degree in History from the University of Colorado at Boulder. While attending CU Boulder, I started coaching high school baseball and found a love for helping children. Being a baseball coach motivated me to earn a teaching license through the Colorado Dept. of Education's Alternative Licensing program. I earned my first teaching job 8 years ago and have been teaching and coaching in Longmont, CO ever since 2008.
I have a variety of interests including but not limited to history, music, sports, language. I currently coach tennis, basketball and track and field while taking a break from baseball. I love music and can play a little guitar and love to play the drums. I consider myself to be conversational in both Spanish and Greek (still learning) and love cultures all around the world. Traveling is something else that I enjoy. Although I do not get to go everywhere I like, I am lucky to have traveled to many places in my life.
I really love my job and working with students to help them achieve their potential. I also believe that we live in an exciting time in the world of education. Technology and innovation are advancing at a rapid pace in academia and I embrace and advocate for many 21st Century learning ideas.

I can help your student with reading comprehension and writing. Having studied history extensively, reading and writing are crucial skills. I can give you student tips and tricks to help them understand their reading and better express their understanding and knowledge gained.

I have a degree in history, plus I have been teaching American history (primarily the founding of the nation) for the past 7 years at the 8th grade level. This is one of my specialties and one of the topics I most enjoy covering.

Hey kids!

If you are looking for some help with your writing or with anything social studies or history related, please feel free to contact me. I can help you with research, organizing your writing, understanding eras in history with more clarity, focusing opinions and viewpoints to help create and prove theses. More so, I believe I can help develop a passion for learning and help you become a life-long learner in the process. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I would love to hear from you! Good luck in the new school year!
