Bio

My name is Kevin and I just transitioned back to civilian life after five years as a Russian linguist in the United States Army. I graduated with my B.A. in Political Science and in Sociology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. I played tennis there for four years and was a team captain for two years.

My name is Kevin and I just transitioned back to civilian life after five years as a Russian linguist in the United States Army. I graduated with my B.A. in Political Science and in Sociology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. I played tennis there for four years and was a team captain for two years.

I am laid back and enjoy the process of both learning and teaching. When I was a Sergeant in the Army I took great pride in mentoring new soldiers. I would often ask "What do you need from me?" I will ask that to any potential client. I want to know how to best help you and encourage any feedback on how I am doing.

I have a A.A. in Russian from the Defense Language Institute. It is the official school for Army Linguists. I am not a native speaker. I enjoy teaching beginners or those who may struggle with the language. Native speakers are fantastic, but I know the struggle of language learning and know the landmines of learning Russian for English speakers.

I graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and Sociology. I served as a campaign coordinator for a local mayoral race. Politics and History are true passions of mine. I get my news from a wide array of sources both foreign and domestic.

I was the Number 1 singles Tennis player for South Amboy High School for four years. I played Varsity Tennis for Fairleigh Dickinson University for 4-years and was captain for my junior and senior years.

I have coached tennis for all age groups. I enjoy the strategic aspect of the game. I enjoy teaching beginners, but my true passion is in helping those who may play in high school or USTA tournaments. I love helping players figure out how to get match tough and how to problem solve on the court. I see many players with textbook strokes, but are not able to use their mind on the court.

I love teaching and tutoring. I am extremely patient and am much more process oriented vs. result oriented because when the process is right the results will come.
