I am a qualified tutor in the following math areas: Prealgebra, Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry.
Here are my credentials:
I have earned an B.S. in Management Information Systems from Rowan University. I also have my graduate endorsement certificate from Rowan University in Teacher of Students with Disabilities. In addition, I work as a part time math tutor for an agency that focuses on students with special needs. Some of these special needs include behavior disabilities and specific learning disabilities. I consider myself to be highly trained in helping students with different types of disabilities.
I am skilled in teaching NJCCCS including:
1. Number and numerical operations;
2. Geometry and measurement;
3. Patterns and algebra;
4. Mathematical processes;
I can provide experience as well as professional one-on-one attention. I have the ability to present math concepts in a simple, step-by-step approach geared towards math-averse students. I am patient with students and have tutored students ranging from elementary school age through high school. I am flexible and will work around the student's schedule. If students have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), I am adept at accommodating students who struggle with understanding math concepts.
In addition to my business management (computer) and math background, I played basketball and baseball in high school. I now officiate both of these sports at various levels. I also officiate Slow Pitch softball. I am very familiar with the rules of these sports and I can help your child develop learning, passion and understanding for playing these sports.
My middle school son had the pleasure of working with Kevin throughout this past school year (2014-2015). Kevin was great with my son. He is very patient and extremely knowledgeable. What kept us working with Kevin throughout the school year was that he was very accommodating and he would not end the tutoring session until my son proved to him that he completely understood the lesson. We will definitely be working with Kevin again next school year!Michelle, 13 lessons with Kevin

Knowledgeable and helpful
My daughter needed help preparing for an Algebra 2 exam. Kevin was very helpful. She got a much needed "A" on the exam. We will definitely use Kevin again.C, 4 lessons with Kevin
I highly recommend Kevin M. as a Math tutor. I am very pleased with how he helped my daughter readily resolve difficulties that she was having with freshman Algebra. Kevin addressed the problem areas that she was experiencing and gave fundamental instructions in a way that helped her understand Algebraic concepts. I had the opportunity to observe Kevin teach my daughter, and it was obvious that he engaged her attention throughout the sessions. Most importantly, Kevin looked forward to teaching. He requested information ahead of the time, in the form of quizzes and chapters that my daughter needed help with, and prepared strategies before the sessions in order to make tutoring time most productive. My husband (a certified English teacher) and I (a licensed counselor) both agree that Kevin has the ability to engage and teach students of all ages in the fundamentals and concepts of Mathematics.Diane, 4 lessons with Kevin
