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!). I do travel if my schedule permits.

Organic chem review session

We went over a lot of practice problems and exam for my upcoming exam, focusing on sn1, sn2, e1, and e2 reactions. Kevin really helped me solidify my knowledge on the material and worked through problems with me, making sure I understood every step!

McKenzie, 3 lessons with Kevin

Worth every penny!!

He was able to break things down so that my daughter fully understood and grasped the concept. He went above and beyond and stayed up late night to help my daughter before her big test! My daughter was more than prepared for her chemistry test and very confident. I can not thank him enough!

Ashlee, 2 lessons with Kevin

Organic Chem 2

Kevin led the session with a concise and organized lesson structure! Kevin is relatable and empathetic. I highly recommend Kevin as a tutor for anyone!

Kimberlie, 1 lesson with Kevin

Very Professional and Effective

Kevin tutored my son in Honors Physics. He asked for material in advance so he could make the most use of the lesson. My son found him clear and effective and had no problem with the online format. Kevin seems very professional and reliable.

Lisa, 8 lessons with Kevin

Excellent HS Physics tutor

Kevin was super nice and immediately connected w my son. He was very knowledgeable and helped explain difficult concepts in a way my son could understand. Definitely recommend.
