About Kevin

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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Computer Science

I've been programming computers since the early 1980s. I'm familiar with OOP and modular design. I've programmed in C, C++, Basic, MatLab, SPlus, Python, and Fortran

Econometrics

I have hands-on experience doing Econometric modeling in the business world, namely in the energy sector. I have over 14 years experience with modeling demand functions.

Linear Algebra

I have a Minor in Math and have done a lot of programming involving Linear Algebra throughout both my business and scientific work.

MATLAB

I've been programming in MatLab since 1997. In fact, these days, besides some scripting languages and the occasional Excel, I only program in MatLab. Very familiar with the mapping and statistics toolboxes among others.
