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!

knowledgeable and patient tutor
Kevin went over factoring with my son to help prepare for Algebra 2. He was very patient after my son didn't understand the first time around. Kevin also does a good job of thinking about what he will do before the lesson to make the most impact.

Very helpful after 1 time
Kevin was great with my son. After one meeting he feels like he understands the material so much better. Kevin was quick to respond and it was easy to setup a Zoom meeting with him. I know my son can request time with him on an as needed basis. Thank you.

Great first tutoring experience!
Kevin did an excellent job tutoring my son in pre-calculus this afternoon. It was like there was a weight lifted off of him when the session was over because Kevin simplified the math in such a way that he really understood what they went over and gave him the boost of confidence that he really needed to start off his school year.

PreCalc - Rational Functions/ Asymptotes. Kevin was able to set up a great teaching relationship with in the first few minutes of the session. We look forward to the next session. The stress of PreCalc is leaving the house. Thank you!
