Bio

I have been teaching Math and Science for over four years, first as a private tutor at Cornell University and now in Boston.

I graduated from Cornell University with a major in Biology and afterward worked at the California Institute of Technology full time doing biology research before returning here to Newton before Medical School.

I have been teaching Math and Science for over four years, first as a private tutor at Cornell University and now in Boston.

I graduated from Cornell University with a major in Biology and afterward worked at the California Institute of Technology full time doing biology research before returning here to Newton before Medical School. I specialize in Math and Science up to the college level, particularly in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and math up to college level calculus (this includes Algebra, Trigonometry, and Geometry).

Having taught from positions as an instructor and study group leader and tutor, I have gained a wealth of experience and understanding of what makes a good teacher, a good teacher. In advanced of my first lesson, I ask for what specific topics the student would like to work on, and what they have been having trouble on and their goals for the next semester/term, in addition to their syllabus and our schedule for the year. This way, I can be as useful as possible to you and most importantly, as prepared as possible.

Then during the first few lessons, I find out how my student learns best so I can cater to their study habits and kind of thinking. Every student studies and learns a little differently and for me that is what makes teaching and tutoring fun and exciting and also what makes each lesson better than the next as I get to know my students better.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Great lesson

Kevin tutored my two students. Matt said "Kevin had the great pleasure of helping my brain learn something about how to find an equation from sequences of series. So unfortunate that my brain could have learned a lot sooner but so sad, my Algebra 2 teacher never seems to organize her methods of teaching or how to properly use a time span of 55 minutes." Mel said "Kevin helped me get a a better understanding on the topics that I did not understand in my AP Biology class such as linked genes and the difference between incomplete dominance and co dominance. Hopefully, I am able to get a better grade on my tests with his help."

Friendly and Easy to Understand

My son liked his session. He said Kevin is not like a regular scientist. Easy to talk to and understand. We needed an emergency session before my son's test. Kevin contacted with us within 30 mins and scheduled the same day.

GREAT Tutor!

Kevin was awesome w/my daughter. He was patient and thoroughly explained things to her. She felt a sense of relief and confidence after her turoring session w/Kevin in Chemistry. We are definitely going to make sure to use him on a weekly basis. Thanks Kevin!

Kevin was terrific

My daughter was struggling with her math. After the lessons, she felt that she understood the material. I hardly ever get to see such a happy teen.

Scott, 1 lesson with Kevin

Prepared, knowledgeable, and patient

He is always prepared for the lessons ahead of time, and is very knowledgeable of the subject he teaches. He is also very patient, and always makes sure you understand the material well.
