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.

Extremely great at teaching

My son is so happy with his tutoring session with Kevin. He explains things in ways which are very easy to understand. Kevin was very prompt and prepared. Kevin is an excellent teacher! Definitely will use his service again.

Phuong, 8 lessons with Kevin

Excellent, knowledgeable tutor

Kevin focused on what I was weak at and helped improve it. His teachings focus on my syllabus? He is an excellent tutor and very patient tutor. He is a great help to me.

Elizabeth, 9 lessons with Kevin

Very smart and very good at calculus

In my meetings with Kevin I have learned a lot. He is very, very smart and also very nice. He makes complex class such as applications in calculus easy to understand. He is the best tutor I have ever had.

John, 15 lessons with Kevin

Very knowledgeable and personable

My son enjoyed his first college physics tutoring session with Kevin Kevin is very knowledgeable and his explanations were detailed and easy to understand. My son felt very confident and able to apply what he learned from Kevin.

Maryann, 19 lessons with Kevin

Big Smiles from our two kids

I only saw the afterglow from our kids, grades 6th and 7th, after their science lesson with Kevin. They both had big grins and were enthusing about the subject. We want them to learn how to think analytically, and exposure to a scientist is the best way, especially with someone as enthusiastic as Kevin.

Will C, 4 lessons with Kevin

Excellent tutor

Very helpful. So grateful Kevin was available on short notice. He helped my son fully understand the subject they worked on. So happy I found him. Highly recommend.

Carrie, 1 lesson with Kevin

Fantastic tutor!

Just when I thought my son was going to pull all his hair out, we contacted Kevin who helped him with some test review with only a few days' notice. My son pulled off an A- on his honors chem exam. We had 2 sessions and both were so helpful. Kevin explained the concepts and didn't just run through the answers. My son was thrilled to finally feel prepared for 2 tests during this crazy year. The virtual learning has been so challenging, especially for chemistry without the in-person labs to drive the concepts home. (And I definitely don't remember my high school chem anymore!)

Kate, 2 lessons with Kevin

Wow! Remarkable, effective tutor

My daughter's first Chemistry lesson with Kevin was remarkable, and very beneficial. He presented the material in a simple, easy to understand method. Kevin covered a lot of information, yet made sure my daughter understood a concept before moving on to the next. The added bonuses are Kevin's patience, the fact that he encourages all questions, and his friendly demeere.

Marcia, 1 lesson with Kevin

KNOWLEDGEABLE AND PATIENT

KEVIN WAS CHOOSEN TO TUTOR CHEMISTRY, MY SON WAS STRUGGLING IN CHEMISTRY HOWEVER HIS 1ST SESSION WITH KEVIN HE DEVELOPED THE LOVE INSTANTLY BECAUSE KEVIN MADE IT SO EASY TO UNDERSTAND . MY POINT IS KEVIN IS 100%ABLE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF CHEMISTRY TO WHOM EVER IS STRUGGLING OR HAVE NO IDEA. MY SON WAS HAPPY (HARD TO PLEASE) MONEY WELL SPENT!
