Successful Math Tutor -- Recently retired high school math teacher
I retired from a local private high school in 2012. I have taught all math subjects including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB. I have taught math for 44 years. I have tutored students privately over the last 30 years. When I tutor, I usually meet for one hour. If I find the student is not responding, or has difficulty staying on task, I stop and talk to them about what interests them most. This usually gets them focused and we can continue....

Very knowledgeable.
Kevin was absolutely fantastic. He explained things to my daughter. She was comfortable with him and asked questions when she needed clarification. I won't hesitate to use him again and highly recommend him. Updated 7/2013 Kevin continues to be a fantastic tutor. He is able to explain concepts to my daughter so that she can fully grasp & understand them. He is aware of where common areas of confusion may arise and helps her with those, and is patient and thorough w/his explanations and in responding to her questions. I attribute my daughter's good grades in math last year to Kevin's tutoring, and am anticipating good grades again this upcoming year. Thank you Kevin! We continue to be so extremely happy with Kevin as a tutor. My daughter's math grades have gone up considerably since he's been tutoring her. Even more importantly, her self confidence in math has increased. After working with Kevin, she believes she can solve the problems and has the tools and strategies to figure it out. My only regret is that he isn't a teacher at her school! Thank you Kevin!

Kevin C. - tutor for my son in Geometry
My son was not doing very well in Geometry until we hired Kevin to tutor him. My son was always saying he had and could manage on his own but the grades proved differently. But with Kevin's patient and kind support his grades has significantly improved. I am so very thankful for Kevin support and help with my son. He is a wonderful tutor!!!

Excellent tutor who has that special knack to connect with anyone
He is a wonderful tutor. Our 16 year old daughter went from confused to "now I get it", with Kevin. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone that wants to help their kids improve in any math subject or level.
