If you are looking for someone to help you where others have failed, or if you just want the best, then I'm definitely your tutor. Key focus must be on the student overcoming any mental barriers he/she may have to understanding the subjects. I teach concepts first and test taking second. If you know the concepts, the test results follow, but test taking strategies are also emphasized.
I specialize in college level courses but am willing to tutor the highly motivated college-bound high school or middle school student if they are serious.
I've spent years in both academia and in the business world and can draw from actual examples that may arise on the job or in the laboratory. My rates are slightly higher than average, but you will find your results will be also.

Higher level college courses subject to a preparation fee, longer distances may require travel cost reimbursement, some subsidy for low-income may also be available, and group discounts possible.
Kevin was knowledgeable, smart, patient and kind. Well dressed and proper was so appreciated! Thank you Kevin. You were awesome sauce!
Kevin has been a lifesaver for my daughter. He can teach complicated subjects to her level and has ability to tutor in a variety of subjects!
He is patient, knowledgable and resourceful . He found a way to explain the subject to my daughter so clearly that she is now looking forward to her class
Kevin was very effective in identifying the areas I was struggling in and providing explanation. For me this is important, as math/physics is a subject I struggle in, therefore I often do not even know what topics to ask for help with. He was extremely patient, supportive, and provided me with a rationale as to why we were employing the equations we used. Kevin was also honest in identifying areas in which I needed to improve and did so in a constructive way. I wish that he was my physics professor as opposed to my physics tutor! I look forward to learning more from him.
When I first hired Kevin to tutor my son in physics and calculus, he was struggling to get Cs in the class. We had Kevin work with him twice a week for the 2nd half of the school year and were thrilled to see his Cs turn into As. There is no doubt in my mind that Kevin's quality tutoring made all the difference in the world and helped save my son's GPA. He has been patient, flexible and always available when my son needed him. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor.
Kevin was very nice and patient with my 13 year old who's having a tough time in Geometry. Kevin did a good job assessing strengths and weaknesses in the very first lesson, and had many good strategies for checking work and taking tests, which are my son's big problems. He's actually looking forward to seeing Kevin again!
Kevin is very patient and thorough with my daughter. He even contacted her teacher on his own time to find out what they should work on. I would definitely recommend Kevin for a high school student.
Kevin G has proved to be a HUGE help over the past few days. My son, a senior was having MAJOR issues going into PreCalculus this year. Somehow he just wasn't getting the basics down and you need these elements in order to survive the year. Clearly his grades reflected major issues. The school was offering some support yet, he needed something in addition to the school system. I simply surfed the net for a local expert and came up with WyzAnt and a number of qualified professionals. I found one very local and seemed to cover not only PreCalculus yet, Algebra from last year and even physics - who the heck knows what my son would need next so, it was "one stop shopping" with a very gifted and talented professional. Highly recommend this service!
After missing almost a week of school, I felt very behind in AP Econ. Worried I would never catch up with all my work, I went on WyzAnt and immediately found Kevin. I decided to give it a try, and after just 1 session, I felt much more relieved. Kevin helps work through your problems and questions. Instead of just telling you the answer, you work together so that you understand the process of getting there. Kevin is easy to get in touch with, and a great listener. I recommend him as a tutor.
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.
