Hi - My name is Kevin and I live in Hawthorne, New Jersey and I love math. I think make is one of the most important subjects that is taught in school for a few reasons. 1) If you know how to do math, you can truly do anything. 2) Almost (well pretty much any) job you will ever do in life involves math in some way or another. 3) If you get the right math teacher, math can truly be the most enjoyable class of the day because there's so many real life applications that will really stimulate...

Now, that's where I come in. I've been teaching math for 7 years now and I love it. I spent the first 4 years of my teaching career teaching high school math in New York City. I worked with at-risk high schoolers in the Bronx, who, when they first came to me hated math. So, my challenge was reengage their love of math, while also helping them prepare for the NYS Regents Exam. I did this through a variety of projects and test prep methods that helped them conquer their fears and do well on the standardized tests. I also have an extensive knowledge of the phenomenon called Math Anxiety and have numerous methods to help my students and kids I tutor overcome that real anxiety they feel when taking math tests or just doing math problems. Then for the past 3 years, I have been teaching 5th, 6th and 7th grade math in a private, Catholic school, along with tutoring students in 7th and 8th grade math. I believe that, no matter what level math you are currently studying and no matter what grade you are currently earning, you have the ability to succeed with a little confidence and quality teaching. I look forward to helping you take that next step and propel you to do the best you can in the world of Mathematics.
