About Kevin

I am a recent graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a B.S. in electrical engineering and a minor in bioengineering. I have just recently moved to Columbus, and I am looking to share my services with area high school and college students. My background is strongest in mathematics and physics, but I also offer help in high school-level and introductory college-level Spanish.

My tutoring approach for mathematics and physics focuses first on working to understand from where each formula, equation, method, etc. originated. From there I work to help visualize the topic at work in the real world. Additionally, I frequently use computer software to generate visual representations of functions, to help further the understanding of what each function actually looks like and how it behaves. In my experience, understanding the origin of something facilitates easier recollection of the formulae and equations, while understanding real-world applications facilitates a lasting comprehension of the mathematical concepts involved.

I currently work part-time for Tutor.com as an online Math tutor, but I enjoy tutoring face-to-face and love opportunities to teach in subject areas outside of pure mathematics, like physics, chemistry, and Spanish.

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.

Calculus

During my undergraduate career, I took four semesters of pure Calculus and many more classes that were primarily based in Calculus. I have been tutoring the subject for a few years, and it remains one of my favorites to teach.

Differential Equations

I completed the course MATH 286, Introduction to Differential Equations Plus, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This course emphasized first- and second-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs), with some coverage of partial differential equations (PDEs), Fourier series, and eigenvectors and eigenvalues.

Electrical Engineering

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in spring 2013 with a B.S. in electrical engineering with a 3.48 GPA. I minored in biomedical engineering with a focus on diagnostic imaging and digital signal processing.

Geometry

I have tutored geometry for about a year and a half now. Geometry is one of the subjects in the standard mathematics core that tends to give students the most trouble, as it takes a different approach than many other math courses. I aim to help my students learn how to approach geometry with the proper problem-solving and dissecting tools.

Physics

I had the fortune of taking my physics courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, which boasts a team of very impressive Physics education researchers that have spent countless hours honing their courses to provide one of the best core physics sequences around. As an engineer, a working knowledge of physics is mandatory, but more importantly, I love helping others come to see the patterns and mathematics at work in the world around us.
