About Kevin

When I first started my college journey, I hadn't a clue about what I wanted to do. Over the years, I've narrowed it down to two things: I love working with people, and I love helping them learn. I've spent years working for other tutoring/test prep companies and have decided to venture out on my own. I've run the gamut of tutoring experiences, everything from helping students understand algebraic concepts to preparing for the AP Calc test. I currently work as a Physical Therapist Assistant, and am completing a degree in Biochemistry (so I'm very confident in my biology, A&P, and Chemistry skills as well).

Simply put, I love math and science! And I sincerely hope that I can help you gain a better understanding of those subjects. I live in the Northern NJ Area, and I currently have availability in the evenings.

I've always been very strong in math. I've helped students in everything: from algebra all the way through to calculus. Some of my proudest accomplishments was helping a student prepare for the AP Calc test (she was able to get a 5), as well as helping some of my previous students to score an 800 on the SAT math.

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 English

I have over 5+ years of experience teaching students the rules and tricks needed to do well on the ACT English. I scored a composite score of 34 on my own ACT.

ACT Math

I have over 5+ years of experience teaching students the rules and tricks needed to do well on the ACT Math test. I scored a composite score of 34 on my own ACT.

ACT Science

Over 5+ years teaching students the rules and tricks needed to do well on the ACT Science test. I scored a composite score of 34 on the ACT when I took the test 10 years ago.

Chemistry

Since high school, chemistry has been one of my "go to" subjects. I've gotten a 5 on the AP chemistry test, and I've continued to improve my knowledge on all aspects of chemistry. I've gotten straight A's in undergrad chem courses, and completed my degree in Biochem with a 3.6 GPA.

Organic Chemistry

I'm majoring in Biochemistry. One of the core requirements of my major is to take two semesters of Organic Chemistry. Organic Chemistry was a struggle, but I worked very hard at it, and I believe I have a fairly good understanding of it.

Precalculus

I've scored an 800 on the SAT math section, and have helped several students score a 5 on the Calculus AP Exam.

SAT Math

I scored an 800 on my SAT math section. I generally help students improve their math score by at least 100-200 points (depending on their amount of motivation).

SAT Reading

I have over 5+ years of experience teaching students the rules and tricks needed to do well on the SAT.
I have an overall score of 2250 on SAT.
