My passion is to work with students of all ages (Middle School through Graduate Programs) in Science and Math. My goal is to teach/mentor/inspire and help students gain confidence in the below subjects.

I currently tutor Chemistry and Chemistry AP, Organic Chemistry, MCAT, DAT, Physics, Physics AP, Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Calculus courses to Middle/High School and College/Graduate students.

I have a specific passion for Mentoring and helping Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental students get into Medical/Dental School.

My posted hours are my preferred times, however I am somewhat flexible and willing to work around your schedule. I am available to do Web-Cam Internet tutoring, so email me to find out more information. I do NOT travel into NYC for tutoring unless my schedule permits.

I look forward to helping you pass your Chemistry/Physics and Math courses!

My educational background is B.S. in Professional Chemistry (Chemistry Major, Math and Physics Minors) from Eastern Michigan University, an M.S. from Michigan State University and a Ph.D.in Organic Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to becoming a full time Mentor/Tutor, I worked 4 years in the Pharmaceutical Business in New Jersey.

My cancellation policy is 12 hours in advance and at this point in time due to high demand - I operate out of our Montclair - New Jersey office in person - tutor a significant amount via Wyzant (try it for free for 15 minutes and see how great it works!).

Excellent Organic chemistry tutor

Kevin is very knowledgeable on the subject but more importantly he can teach a complicated topic with great clarity. I highly recommend him. My daughter has benefitted from his tutoring skills

Micaela, 32 lessons with Kevin

Patient & Engaging

Kevin has been extremely helpful! He is very patient and takes things one step at a time. Tutoring has helped me gain more confidence when approaching new and difficult material in orgo II.

Jessica, 3 lessons with Kevin

Knowledgeable and helpful.

Looking forward to more sessions with Kevin. He was helpful in last minute prep for the DAT. Plan on working with him to even better my score the next time……………….

Susan, 1 lesson with Kevin

So helpful

He makes chemistry so simple and easy when it comes to figuring out calculations. And all he has to do is explain it once and I got it. He’s easy going and so smart. I couldn’t ask for a better person to walk me through this course. Thank you

Michael, 4 lessons with Kevin

Fantastic teacher. Very patient.

It’s nice to find people that really enjoy teaching and take the time to make sure you understand the concepts.

Miroslava, 1 lesson with Kevin

Knowledgeable and flexible tutor

My son had a chemistry tutoring session with Kevin. He found Kevin to be knowledgeable and easy going. Kevin was very responsive and flexible with his schedule, which was very helpful. We'll definitely be scheduling more sessions in the future.

Kailing, 7 lessons with Kevin

Knowledgeable and wonderful teacher!

Kevin was able to catch my daughter up in 6 weeks of college organic chemistry in one session! And has been able to keep her understanding each new concept! Very thankful for Kevin. Wish we knew him sooner!

Sarah , 7 lessons with Kevin

Awesome tutor, so smart

best tutor i’ve ever had. he lays information out clearly and gives tools to enhance learning consistently. Give him a shot!

Aidan, 7 lessons with Kevin

Chemistry

He is very spot on. And really has his ways and knows exactly what to teach. He is also very thorough with his time. If he is able to convey everything within half an hr, he is done. And then sometimes 1 hr. Which is good. Does not waste time. And makes my child comfortable.
