About Kevin

I was extremely scared of math at one point in my life. I was especially scared of statistics. While in college, I decided I wanted to challenge myself and changed my major to Physics. I remember speaking with the dean and he asked about mathematical skills. I told him I wasn't the best but I was willing to work hard for it. He believed in me and immediately enrolled me in the summer semester. I registered for calculus 1 and chemistry 1. I studied for more than 10 hours a day every day to catch up to the class. My hard work led me to being exempt from the final. I continued with the hard work and graduated with honors. I was also awarded great internship opportunities at prestigious national labs and universities. I could not tell this story without honoring the math tutoring lab. They helped me so much and for that reason I developed a passion for tutoring.

I started tutoring the following semester and continued throughout my time in college. I developed a tutoring program in our department where we tutored for all general physics and mathematics courses. Oftentimes we would tutor chemistry. I was so proud to have that lab because it created income for us and also gave us the ability to become more proficient.

I have taught on all academic levels from elementary to collegiate and love them all. As I was taught, math is a language. All we need is someone to help us learn it.

I am an outstanding math tutor because I was the one who needed the most help in the classroom. I know what it's like to not get it. I know what it's like to be frustrated because it comes so naturally to others. I worked hard and want to help people see that it is not as difficult as it may seem. Sometimes you just have to trust that the math works. The details will come later. Do as many problems as you can and know that eventually you will start to connect the dots.

If you want to learn the language of math in a creative environment then I'm the person to contact. We will do as many problems as necessary while enjoying the experience.
