About Kevin

Science and math have always been areas of passion for me. I pursued those passions in college, graduating with honors with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and a minor in Math. I continued on to earn a Master's degree in organic chemistry and then went on to a 14 year career as a research chemist in the pharmaceutical industry. During those 14 years, I worked with area schools to conduct interactive science demos for area children. Those experiences helped to motivate me to focus full time on inspiring the next generation by making learning fun and exciting.

In addition to tutoring, I lead a science enrichment program here in southeast Michigan. The mission is to awaken the curiosity and imagination of children through unique interactive scientific activities. It is my goal that students not simply learn about science, but that they EXPERIENCE it! I bring that same philosophy to my tutoring! I am committed to the idea that learning is not just about memorizing facts and information, it is about awakening the desire to understand.

I do my best to be flexible with time. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I do offer make-up classes.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to be successful in your studies!
