About Kevin

I am a graduate of Siena College with a degree in physics as well as a minor in mathematics. As a student I have a strong personal preference in taking the time to understand how something works and not just getting the answer that one needs to pass a class. I have experience in many areas of physics, including relativity, electricity and magnetism, classical and quantum mechanics as well as particle physics and electronics. I am more than willing to help anyone in need and can provide tutoring in many areas of mathematics related to physics as well.

I currently am obtaining Masters Degree in Acoustics and plan to start my own guitar effects pedal company. In addition to math and science I know how to play seven instruments and am willing to teach anyone how to play guitar. While I am primarily focused on beginners, I'm sure that I can often even those with some practice a bit of insight as well. I can assure you that learning from me will come without all of the frustration of starting a new instrument.

My main goal as tutor is to make sure you achieve as much as possible. I look forward to hearing from some of you in the future.

All The Best,
Kevin M.

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.

Guitar

The first instrument I learned was trumpet in fourth grade and since then I have learned how to play seven other instruments (in order: guitar, bass, trombone, drumset, ukulele, piano, and Irish tin whistle). I have played guitar for 6 years and have taught many people beginner lesson on guitar. I can teach guitar in terms of fingering and chords, or notes and chords. I have been in concert and jazz bands through out high school and have been in a music ministry, chorus, pep band and chamber choir in college. I have a wide array of musical knowledge and experience.

MATLAB

As a physics undergraduate I have extensive knowledge of using MATLAB on various programming projects. I was even given the opportunity to test the online edition through MathWorks. In my current graduate studies I use MATLAB almost every day to write programs to solve acoustic problems.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Throughout my career as a student I have worked on many projects, papers, and lab reports that have involved the use of the Microsoft Office package. With ten years of experience, I have a vast knowledge on this subject.

Microsoft Word

Throughout my career as a student I have worked on many projects, papers, and lab reports that have involved the use of the Microsoft Word. I have vast knowledge of keyboard short cuts and specific ways to format documents that I have been using for close to ten years.

Trumpet

The first instrument I learned was trumpet in fourth grade, and since then, I have learned how to play seven other instruments (in order: guitar, bass, trombone, drumset, ukulele, piano, and Irish tin whistle). I have played guitar for 6 years and have taught many people beginner lessons on guitar. I can teach trumpet in terms of fingering or notes or whichever you prefer. I have been in concert and jazz bands throughout high school and have been in a music ministry, chorus, pep band and chamber choir in college.
