About Kevin

I am a retired agriculture teacher and software trainer with a MS Ed in Instructional Design/Technology. I was last employed at Purdue University Extension where I taught food and nutrition to school children. I have tutored all ages for over thirty years and have helped students prepare for GED, PRAXIS, and employment tests. I am also a Microsoft Office Specialist.

I am available to tutor during the daytime and immediately after school. I can meet at your home or a local library.

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.

ASVAB

I have experience preparing students for the ASVAB. I have taught all categories of the ASVAB. I have practice tests we can use to help determine and remediate your weak subjects.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BS in Education and a MS Ed in Instructional Design. I have worked with elementary school children for over 30 years. The combination of my formal education and my experience enables me to identify a students needs and adjust my teaching method to meet their needs. I enjoy being with young people and they enjoy being with me. I have also helped elementary school children prepare for the ISTEP in Indiana.

Elementary Math

I have taught basic math as a part of my high school agriculture classes. I also have taught math to GED test prep students. I have taught middle school level math to online students in a virtual environment.

GED

I have helped many students prepare for GED testing when I was Learning Lab Instructor at WorkOne in Gary and Crown Point. I use the Steck-Vaughn materials. I also have practice tests to help determine what your needs are.

Homeschool

I have homeschooled my son and two of my grandsons. I am currently providing homeschool to two special needs students. I am very calm and patient with students. I have a MSEd in Instructional Design which has prepared me to use many different teaching methods to differentiate instruction.
I have tutored online and I am an advocate of the homeschool choice.

Microsoft Project

I have taught Microsoft Project many times as a corporate trainer. My current level is Project 2000. I can tutor a student with the basics. My teaching style is to demonstrate a skill then step you through the process as you do it. Finally you are provided with practice exercises as I observe.

Microsoft Windows

I have been teaching MS Windows since the first release many years ago and have kept up to date with it through Windows 7. I can help you with file management feature of Windows Explorer and how to find things on your computer. I can also help with using Internet Explorer.

Microsoft Word

I have taught Word to individuals and college classrooms since the first DOS release. I am a MS Office 2000 Specialist.

Psychology

I have enough college credits in Psychology to earn a minor. Most of my course work and independent studies have been in the area of educational psychology and some in the area of experimental psychology. I have also worked as a crisis interventionist for youth. I will be happy to discuss your tutoring needs to determine if I can help you.

Reading

I have taught reading to students preparing for the GED. I have taught reading to adult students preparing for employment testing. I have taught reading to students in grades 6-12 for ISTEP testing.

Study Skills

I have an MS Ed for Instructional Design with over 30 years' experience teaching various subjects to students of all ages. This has provided me with the theory and experience of teaching and learning. I can help a student identify their learning styles and develop a routine for self directed learning.
