About Kevin

Students often need support and guidance on the road to college and graduate school. With 20 years experience as a leader in the field, I am ready and available to help you chart the course forward with confidence. I started as an SAT and ACT teacher in 1994, soon adding scores and skills for GRE, GMAT and LSAT as I took over a management role for a national test prep firm. Helping students gain admission to the college and law, business, or grad school of their choice is my passion and area of expertise, and I look forward to working with you.

With a balance of math and verbal skills that signals success on high-stakes tests, I also bring to my tutoring students a well-rounded background of languages, music, and liberal arts from graduate work and teaching in theology, choral conducting, and history. You may need help navigating the choppy waters that separate you from the school, career, and future path of your dreams. Contact me to help you make the path clear, your journey effective, and your experience 100% satisfactory as you pursue your dreams with confidence.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Reading

I am an ACT generalist, who is qualified by WyzAnt in all subject areas.

Algebra 2

Having helped students prepare for the SAT and other standardized tests since 1994, and with my fourth child entering Algebra studies right now, I believe we can work together to help you start making progress early and often, to keep you on track.

Elementary (K-6th)

I home-schooled my children for 3 years with stellar test scores. As a test prep teacher and graduate instructor for 25 years, and church school teacher and choir director for 10 years, I provide holistic and age-appropriate training for students at any level. In addition to the critical thinking, math and reading skills required for these fields, my undergrad and graduate training in music, language, and history allows me to provide a very well-rounded experience for all students.

General Music

In my high school and undergraduate studies, I was a choral musician, including work as a choir director from the age of 15. After college, I studied music history and theory in graduate school. With a master of music in choral conducting from Mannes College of Music, I can help any theory, instrumental or voice students at the beginning and intermediate levels.

GRE

GRE score of 2380 out of 2400, test-prep and admissions counselor, teacher, tutor, and trainer since 1994.

LSAT

With a 2380 official GRE, and dozens of score-qualified 95th percentile results on GMAT and LSAT tests for a major national test prep firm, I can assist you with any portion of the GRE, GMAT, or LSAT in time for your high-stakes admissions testing experience.

Precalculus

I have taught and tutored in precalculus, active reading, and other critical skills areas since 1994.

Knowledgable and friendly tutor

We discussed questions from the hard section for the verbal GRE. The emphasis was on text completion. I learned that my vocabulary still needs a lot of work and that the TC questions are not just about knowing vocabulary, but also being able to interpret the TC question in its entirety. We also discussed RC questions, where replacing difficult words with simple terms made it a lot easier to digest
