About Kelvin

I am a chess player and love the game so much I decided that I would love to share my skills for anyone willing to learn. I have been playing chess since I was five years old. I have been in a total of seven national chess tournaments not including the New York State tournament. I was a part of the chess club in college where I developed a passion for teaching my fellow peers. I have taught my little sister and cousin the game of chess and I hope to influence the younger generation in the same way. Chess is more than a game, you learn plenty of life lessons.

I had a core focus in English and I scored very well on the reading section of the SAT (710/800).

I also teach volleyball! I played volleyball since I was 14 years old and it is a great sport to learn. It made me realize that you don't have to be tall to be a great player. I have played on the Providence College men's club travel team and have an intramural championship in the sport (it's a very big deal at my school). Volleyball is a game of technique and if I am able to show the proper skills, there is no doubt in my mind that my students will excel! I have taught intramural volleyball at Providence College as well.

If you are looking for a fun, exciting hands on learning tutor please contact me! I want students to feel comfortable asking me anything.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

I am a qualified candidate because I have been playing chess since the age of five. I have been to 7 national chess championships, excluding New York State regional tournaments. I am nationally ranked and will be teaching in some parts of Westchester coming this fall. I have shadowed my chess teacher many times who he believes I am qualified to teach.

English

I had a core focus in English and I scored very well on the reading section of the SAT (710/800). My major (Health Policy & Management) required me to write and edit a lot of papers. I received numerous feedback from professors on my writing and it has significantly improved from when I was a freshman in college.

Volleyball

I have been playing volleyball for about 8 years now. I played on my varsity high school team for 2 years. I then played at my college on a Men's club travel team. I have taught intramural volleyball at Providence College as well.
