About Kevin

I have been working as a substitute teacher for almost fifteen years. I enjoy working with youths of all ages.

While I specialize in math and science, I am also a fairly accomplished writer. I have taught 1st grade math through 12th grade calculus, however I did not advance much beyond Calculus 2. I am fairly comfortable with single variable differentiation and integration, but my knowledge of multi-variable differential equations is limited.

I feel comfortable teaching subject matters such as physics and earth science, but I also can teach grammar and writing.

Typically when I teach and tutor, I strive to instill independence in the students that I am working with. There is an old saying, "If you give a student the answers he needs, he'll learn and thrive for a day. If you guide a student through the process of FINDING the answers for himself, he'll learn and thrive for a lifetime."

I would be happy to arrange an appointment with your son or daughter to help him or her become a more successful student.

Please note that it may take me up to 12 hours to respond to an initial inquiry depending on when you first send your email. I work nearly every day in the schools here in Washtenaw County so I often cannot respond to emails until the school day is over. A typical school day ends around 4:30 pm but sometimes sooner.

Also, given that I do not own a vehicle, I need about one day advance notice to schedule our first session. That gives me a chance to consider best meeting times and locations.

Any sessions following our first session are usually much easier to arrange.

Thank you for your consideration.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I have frequently taught algebra in the schools when I substitute teach, so I am familiar with many of the misconceptions that students have when it comes to this subject.
