Hello. My name is Kevin. A few years ago, I stopped teaching calculus to start my own business. I still have a passion for teaching and enjoy helping students. Experience has taught me that nothing is too hard for committed students and that anybody can learn math.

Hello. My name is Kevin. A few years ago, I stopped teaching calculus to start my own business. I still have a passion for teaching and enjoy helping students. Experience has taught me that nothing is too hard for committed students and that anybody can learn math.

I have over fifteen years experience tutoring and teaching math from middle school to college level. This includes three years as a college professor. I have experience with all topics up to differential equations and linear algebra. And I can work with all types of students.

Every student has a different reason for studying mathematics. I want to learn what motivates you and where you might struggle in math. Then I can adjust how I explain a topic in such a way that you understand. If you work with me, you will be teaching me as I teach you.

Knowledgeable Tutor

Kevin is a very patient, knowledgeable tutor. He is easily approachable and very flexible in scheduling classes. Will definitely recommend him!

Niranjana, 15 lessons with Kevin

Patient and knowledgeable

Kevin is very patient and easy for my 16-year-old to talk to and work with. He is well-prepared and encouraging. More than once while he was working with my daughter it was almost as if I could see the “light bulb” turn on above her head.

April, 9 lessons with Kevin

Very patient.

Helped with multiple things I struggled with, helped me solved them but made me try all of them on my own with my self knowledge. Friendly, and patient even when I forgot the basics of something we had just did. Will be returning in the future!

Myka, 1 lesson with Kevin

Awesome Guy

Kevin was very patient with me and help me to understand how to break down math problems In an easier form. It was evident that he had the knowledge to help me. I will definitely be recommending him to others. Thanks Kevin!

Ebony, 2 lessons with Kevin

Knowledgeable, personable and cool!

My son hates school, hates studying, he pretty much hates learning. Getting him to study is usually a lost cost. I'm very lucky to have found Kevin because his teaching style is down to earth enough to make tutoring feel less formal. This makes learning fun! I don't have to remind my son that it is time for their tutoring session, Tahj signs onto Wyzant on time. He brings his home work and actually gets something done. He thinks Kevin is cool!

Willina, 4 lessons with Kevin

Amazing tutor

Kevin did a amazing job! He was very helpful and patient. He took his time explaining the areas that I needed help in. I plan to use him through this whole course.
