As a Mensa member, CPA (Certified Public Accountant), MBA and inventive Patent Holder with the US Patent Office, I know that learning is a great investment. My passion for teaching comes from a life long passion for learning. Both students and parents say that I help students succeed and realize their own potential with improved confidence, grades and test scores.

I specialize in tutoring subjects and tests for math, science, history, government, geography, accounting, finance and related business topics. One of my goals for each tutoring session is to keep the student engaged and challenged yet not overwhelmed. I use a number of teaching methods, including practice questions and topical computer related tools.

I often ask for feedback and appreciate candid communication.

I try to be flexible with my time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup sessions.

To help ensure that we have a quiet and comfortable study space, I work with the student to help select mutually convenient locations.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success.

Awesome Tutor!!

Kevin is wonderful. I just had my second session with him today. He is very patient and very easy to understand. I had a session with another tutor before and I was more lost than before I started with him. I haven’t taken my exam yet (S7) but I have a good feeling with Kevin’s help I will be able to pass. I normally don’t write reviews but I know how important it is for students to read these reviews before hiring someone, especially if you are pressed with time. Highly recommended.

Outstanding Tutor

GREAT TUTOR! If you're SERIOUS about passing your Series 7 Exam you MUST contact Kevin and let him guide you through the necessary material to pass the Series 7! Kevin is a master of analogy and reducing complex strategies/concepts to their core meaning, thus enabling his students to process and evaluate - NOT memorize! I passed my S7 with room to spare thanks entirely to Kevin's methodical, logical approach to teaching. I will continue to ask for his assistance as I move forward, and I absolutely recommend Kevin as an outstanding tutor!

Series 7 final review

I had a final review with Kevin a couple days before I took my series 7 exam! He was great with giving me some helpful tools to use during the exam! I passed. Thank you Kevin!

Paul, 3 lessons with Kevin

Very professional

I’m just starting to work with him but it’s looking good so far. He found weak points in my understanding that I wasn’t even aware of and made feel more comfortable with the online tutoring process. We are going through the Kaplan Series 7 book in order and I understand it much better now that I know which information to focus on. (Giving someone a 665-page book and telling them “everything matters” isn’t very helpful.) We went over the 1933 and 1934 acts in our initial lesson and will be meeting again soon. He was understanding when I had an emergency the night of our lesson and had to cancel which helped take quite a bit of stress off my mind. In short; I would recommend him.

Knowledgeable, patient, great at explaining

I loved working with Kevin for my Series 7 exam. I actually had previously taken the Series 7 twice and failed. I just passed it today after working with Kevin for the past month or so. He helped me a lot with understanding the "why" to some topics and the history behind them. He is very knowledgeable in this field and a wonderful teacher. I will definitely go to him for help on my next test, which is the Series 66. Highly recommended!

Knowledgeable, patient

He is awesome. I have learned a lot with him. I strongly recommend Kevin. He knows the series 7 material and makes it easy to understand. He clarified and explained all my doubts and I finally understood fundamental concepts that I need to pass the series 7 test.

Highly Recommend for Series 7!

Kevin S. tutored me on the Series 7. Kevin was great! He had a lot of tips and tricks that boosted my confidence and helped tremendously in understanding the Series 7 material. He was very knowledgeable and when reviewing was very thorough and patient. I would highly recommend!

Great teacher and explains in simple form

I just passed my series 7 with the help of Kevin! I think we met about 10-15 times or so after I had failed the exams before. I was previously using Kaplan, but Kevin preferred the STC series. I’d say he was right because I thought their videos were better than Kaplan, and the exams were close in line to what I got in terms of score. In addition, they have an App which helps too. Kevin and I met several times to go over my weak areas, and also improve everything else. His options method helped a lot and pushed me over to the 80-90% on that section during the exams. He also did a tremendous job of explaining the muni section which is a big part of the exam. During the break of the exam, Kevin also made himself available for me to largely keep my nerves down. Overall, it has been a great experience working with Kevin and I’d highly suggest him. Will work with him on the series 63 most likely as well. Thank you Kevin! Update-I just passed my series 63 working with Kevin! I had one shot to pass, so I needed and wanted to work with Kevin again given prior success. Similar to the 7, he recommended STC, but I had already previously purchased the Kaplan book and program. I finished that, and at the same time, we’d watch videos, complete questions together and he’d highlight key areas for me to remember on STC’s program. I think his strategy of writing down the except, true, false, etc. really helped me to know exactly what the question was asking especially when they ask the double negatives. Overall a great teacher and I’d highly recommend him!
