I am an engineer with an MS in Electrical Engineering who is passionate about mathematics AND (more importantly) its applications to real-world problems. From my engineering undergraduate and graduate coursework, I am familiar with and comfortable explaining Algebra, Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations as well as Physics. I am patient and professional with students, and will go the extra mile to make sure students have a physical “feel” for the math they’re learning as well as a general approach to solving problems.
As an Electrical Engineering graduate student at Lehigh University I had the opportunity to gain experience working with students of different skill levels. I lead two lectures a week teaching a math-intensive introductory circuits course. In addition to leading lectures, I spent considerable time leading electronics labs, helping students apply their textbook knowledge to real circuits. In my free time, I was also a volunteer for Lehigh’s STAR tutoring service as a math and science tutor for Bethlehem, PA area middle school and high school students.
After finishing my MS at Lehigh in 2011, I earned an engineering position at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, where I currently work. I enjoyed the opportunities I had to interact with students to help them understand difficult material, and miss the “Aha!” moments we were able to share when I helped solidify a concept they previously struggled with.

Kevin helped my daughter prepare for the difficult AP Calc exam, and explained the concepts giving her a well-rounded understanding. He came prepared with materials for her to use after the session and was genuinely concerned for her achievement.
Kevin was super helpful in increasing my understanding of how to set up and move through Fourier series and Fourier transforms. He revealed some really useful tips and advice for getting through these problems but was sure not to waste time by dwelling on tedious solutions.
Kevin is a knowledgeable tutor, who is able to explain math in a very detailed and understanding way. He is also a very nice guy and quite flexible.
I would strongly recommend Kevin.
Kevin tutored my 15 year old son in Physics. He was very well prepared, very knowledgeable and able to breakdown concepts in a way that my son was able to grasp. I will definitely book additional tutoring sessions with Kevin.
Kevin is very patient with me and has picked up on my learning style. He explains things very well and works things step by step. Very helpful!
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.
I have been tutoring algebra 1 students since 2011. My mastery of higher-level mathematical courses is derived from my fundamentals in algebra 1. I am comfortable explaining algebraic concepts and relating them to real-world examples to help the student visualize problems and solve them.
I work with Algebraic concepts on a day to day basis during work developing mathematical algorithms for naval systems. I have real-world experience with this type of math and I have tutored students in algebra 2 since 2011.
I have taken and earned A's in Calculus 1, 2, and 3 at Lehigh University. As an engineer, I am forced to rely on these basics to accomplish my job on a day-to-day basis. Calculus is my favorite subject to tutor and I have been working with AP and college students since 2011. I have experience helping students prepare for the AP calculus (AB and BC) exams as well.
I have taken undergraduate and graduate courses (in Math and and Engineering) which deal with differential equations. In advanced engineering courses flexible knowledge of differential equations is critical and as such my experience with solving tough problems is up-to-date in this subject.
I have tutored this subject through WyzAnt and at my former academic institution.
I have a mechanical engineering background and extensive tutoring experience which includes experience tutoring students in geometry. I am comfortable tutoring this material, especially when it pertains to physical or algebraic problems.
I have degrees in both Mechanical and Electrical Engineering which have provided me with a firm foundation in solving practical physics problems. I have tutored students at a university level in this subject at Lehigh University and as a Wyzant tutor since 2011. I have also tutored physics with and without calculus.
I have been tutoring students in precalculus since 2011. I understand that precalculus can be a challenging experience as many new topics are explored, often without context or proper examples. From my academic and work experience I have come to learn real-world applications for each concept which makes them easier for the student to digest and learn.
