About Kevin

Why should you choose only me as your advanced math tutor?

That's easy. Fluency in advanced math requires its tutors to be highly effective. My service is the embodiment of learning and definitive knowledge that is relevant to your needs. I provide an unparalleled and professional learning environment. Most importantly, I use the most efficient approach toward tutoring advanced math. It doesn't matter if your brain previously exploded trying to interpret an inferential hypothesis test, improper integral, power series, hyperbolic paraboloid, or a Laplace transform! My reviews and ratings demonstrate the tremendous results, progress and satisfaction of my students after receiving my services.

My years of education and experience have allowed me to excel in tutoring advanced math. Advanced math covers material beyond what all high school students must take before graduating. This includes advanced function modeling, precalculus, calculus 1/2/3, college statistics, college trigonometry and differential equations. At North Carolina State I earned my bachelor's degree in meteorology, the study of weather. Meteorology requires having complex mathematical skills to model and understand the dynamics of constant atmospheric changes. For instance, I obtained an A+ in Calculus 2 and Calculus 3 during my undergraduate curriculum.

I also provide tutoring for non-advanced high school math, standardized test math sections and certain graduate school level math subjects. My rates for those are listed below on my profile.

So let's get going and schedule your in-person or online tutoring sessions. If you choose me then you will learn what you truly need to achieve! I thank you for your time.

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 Math

The ACT test provides college admissions officers with a non-biased assessment of a high school student's academic readiness for college. The ACT's math section covers high school geometry, algebra 1 and algebra 2. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects. The ACT is more knowledge based than the trickier SAT. Thus, the ACT provides a fairer depiction of a student's true math skills and if they can handle advanced math.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 expands on pre-algebra concepts discussed in previous grade levels. Common core math discusses algebra 1 concepts mainly in its Math 2 high school course. Math 2 focuses its algebra on the proper interpretation of quadratic equations and quadratic functions. Math 1 is more closely linked to traditional pre-algebra.

Algebra 2

Common core math spreads out algebra 2 among Math 1, 2 and 3 high school courses. Math 1 introduces students to the idea of a function and its basic characteristics. Math 2 mainly discusses quadratic equations and quadratic functions. Math 3 provides a solid understanding of the most common types of functions used extensively in advanced/college-level math courses.

ASVAB

The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) test is for students seeking to enter the military service or to identify job-related interests for suitable employment. The math covered on this exam spans from elementary number sense to non-advanced high school math. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects.

Calculus

In high school I obtained a top score on the Advanced Placement Calculus AB exam. This allowed me to bypass taking Calculus I as a freshman at North Carolina State University. At the completion of my undergraduate curriculum, I received an "A+" in Calculus II (more integration based) and Calculus III (multivariable calculus).

Common Core

The Common Core, according to www.corestandards.org, is a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade within K-12. The standards were created, supposedly, with the intention of having all high school students graduate with the prerequisite skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live. The Common Core has been adopted by most of the United States. The North Carolina State Board of Education and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction adopted Common Core starting in the 2012-2013 academic year. I tutor all math subjects covered underneath the Common Core Standards.

Differential Equations

The motion of various real world phenomena can be described and modeled through the use of ordinary differential equations. The course mainly provides rigorous study of first and second order ordinary differential equations. This includes the use of calculus, Laplace transforms and linear algebra as important methods to solve them. As a sophomore at North Carolina State University I received an "A" in an ordinary differential equations course. This course was part of my undergraduate curriculum toward obtaining my bachelor's degree in meteorology.

GED

The GED (General Educational Development) test provides an opportunity for equivalency to a high school diploma. It also allows for entry into the workplace and to pursue higher education. The math covered on the GED encompasses material from elementary number sense to non-advanced high school math. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects.

Geometry

High school geometry expands on spatial recognition concepts discussed in previous grade levels. Common core math spreads out high school geometry among Math 1, 2 and 3 courses. Math 1 links algebraic formulas for midpoint, distance and slope of a line with the coordinate plane. Math 2 discusses transformations of figures, congruence/similarity theorems and basic trigonometry. Math 3 mostly focuses on a robust understanding of circles and their interaction with lines, line segments and established angles.

GRE

The GRE General test provides a non-biased assessment of an undergraduate's readiness for graduate-level courses and academic research. The GRE General's math section covers high school geometry, algebra 1 and algebra 2. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects.

ISEE

The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) is a test for students seeking admission to private middle schools or high schools. The actual specific ISEE test taken (Primary, Lower, Middle , or Upper) depends upon the student's grade level. Thus, the math covered on this exam encompasses material from elementary number sense to non-advanced high school math. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects. The SSAT, akin to the ISEE, is a similar admissions test for private middle and high schools that I also prepare students to master its math sections.

Prealgebra

Pre-algebra expands on number sense concepts discussed in previous grade levels. Common core math discusses pre-algebra concepts mainly in its Math 1 high school course. Math 1 introduces students to the idea of a function and its main characteristics. Math 2 is more closely linked to traditional algebra 1.

Precalculus

Pre-calculus involves the understanding of advanced trigonometry, advanced functions, analytic geometry, and data analysis. I excelled at pre-calculus in high school and I know that this course provides substantial preparation for future calculus courses taken in high school or in college.

Probability

At North Carolina State University, I excelled in a "Probability and Statistics for the Physical Sciences" course. This data-intensive and inferential course was required for me to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in meteorology. Therefore, I mainly tutor undergraduate-level probability concepts.

PSAT

The PSAT/NSMQT test provides a non-biased assessment of a high school student's academic readiness for college. The PSAT/NSMQT's math covers high school geometry, algebra 1 and algebra 2. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects. Taking the PSAT/NSMQT allows for automatic screening into the National Merit® Scholarship Program (an annual academic competition for recognition and college undergraduate scholarships).

SAT Math

The SAT test provides college admissions officers with a non-biased assessment of a high school student's academic readiness for college. The SAT's math covers high school geometry and algebra 2. I am already well qualified to tutor those math subjects.

Statistics

At North Carolina State University, I excelled in a "Probability and Statistics for the Physical Sciences" course. This data-intensive and inferential course was required for me to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in meteorology. Therefore, my statistics background is mainly on the undergraduate level but I also tutor graduate-level statistics.

Trigonometry

The study of pre-calculus includes the understanding and manipulating of various trigonometric equations, identities and formulas. This trigonometry is more advanced than what is encountered in middle school and high school geometry. I excelled at this advanced trigonometry in high school and I know that it is absolutely essential for future calculus courses.

Excellent Tutor!

I cannot say enough about Kevin. My recent statistics course has been the most challenging class I have experienced in my academic career thus far. I struggled with the material, but Kevin walked me through it every step of the way. He was not only dedicated and well prepared, but he took a great deal of time between our sessions to construct study guides specific to my needs. He was always availa
