I have developed a reputation as a very charismatic and engaging teacher of both Math and Science, with an ability to bring even the most challenging concepts down to earth and into the student's comfort zone.

Hi! My name is Taylor and the many students I have worked with throughout my teaching career have known me simply as Mr. K. I have developed a reputation as a very charismatic and engaging teacher of both Math and Science, with an ability to bring even the most challenging concepts down to earth and into the student's comfort zone. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Materials Engineering from the University of California, Davis and I hold two current California teaching credentials, in Mathematics and Agricultural Science, with authorizations in Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Science. I'm a full-time high school Math and Science teacher by day, a father of five awesome kids, and I love to tutor students of all ages and backgrounds whenever I can.
Teaching has always been a passion for me, and I turned to teaching as a full-time career in 2014 after working some years in the aviation industry. I currently work for a small charter academy in Northern California, which allows me to develop close working relationships with my students. I bring this approach to my tutoring work as well, involving ongoing goal-setting, assessment and feedback to ensure that I am adapting to the student and maximizing the returns from our sessions.
In addition to my Engineering degree, I have completed a graduate program in Mathematics Education, earning a California single-subject teaching credential for secondary mathematics, which authorizes me to teach all middle-school and high school mathematics topics up through Calculus. I have six years experience teaching high school mathematics full-time, and I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and AP Statistics during this time.
I always look forward to working with new students of all ages. Whatever your goals are, I am here to help you overcome your current challenges in math and science, big or small!

Knowledgeable and dedicated teacher
Taylor’s teaching methods are great. Very clear and concise. Doesn’t waste your time explaining meaningless background information and always tutors with the intent to help you understand the material. This has helped my daughter learn skills with a truly warm, personal and caring teacher like Taylor. Very quick to respond, and is amazing. He has my highest recommendation.Sonali, 7 lessons with Taylor
I would like to give Taylor 5 Stars!
I’m not technically savvy therefore it took me a few attempts to connect with Taylor but I finally managed attend the session. I am extremely happy with the results and I feel more confident to complete my math assignment. Thank you, Sincerely, Karen LingardKaren, 2 lessons with Taylor
Bravo! We booked for a session the next day
Taylor was extremely patient. We had a few technical glitches that had nothing to do with him and each time we logged back in he was still there waiting patiently. My son is not easy to impress but he learned so much from this tutor. Don’t hesitate if you need Statistics help. He is the man! Thank you!Sherrine, 3 lessons with Taylor
Taylor is a very knowledgeable Algebra II teacher!
Taylor has been very helpful throughout our three Algebra II tutoring sessions. He has helped me understand concepts to a greater extent. I am able to complete all assignments with more understanding and have more confidence in class.Ethan, 6 lessons with Taylor
You were amazing!
My son said that Taylor taught him. Taylor knows how to break down the concepts so they actually make sense. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has AP stat, and we will continue using him until the AP exam is over.Oren, 26 lessons with Taylor
Taylor is always extremely helpfull and clearly explains the lesson to my daughter. As a result, my daughter earned 100% on her exam and is on point to complete AP Stats in her senior year of HS.Diane, 14 lessons with Taylor
Smart, patient, thorough, and caring.
Taylor went in depth helping me with problems that I didn't understand. He made sure to write all of the steps for me. He showed me how to do the problems on the calculator. Taylor is very helpful and he made sure that I didn't have any questions about what he was teaching me.Katie , 1 lesson with Taylor
He works very well with my children. He is patient and thorough and takes time to explain. He is always accommodating with his schedule and able to reschedule when needed.Roberta, 56 lessons with Taylor
Very helpful. My college kid has Statistics and felt that Taylor was patient and “knows his stuff”. We will use his help again soon. We’ll see what the test score is! Fingers crossed! Thank you.Liz, 1 lesson with Taylor
Great Tutor with Very Easy to Understand Teaching
He put everything that was confusing me in the classroom and simplified it. Helped a lot with what I didn’t understand.Joe, 1 lesson with Taylor
