About Kevin

From middle school to high school, I attended an all-honors school for the gifted, graduating valedictorian with a 4.32 GPA. Over the course of this time, I tutored in math, both inside and outside school. While applying to colleges, I scored a 32 on the ACT, and a 2100 (700, 700, 700) on the SAT.

I attended Skidmore College, a top-50 "New Ivy" school, where I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Government and Economics in 2011. I have since been employed as a Market Analyst, and have given private lessons on Economics and Political Science topics on several occasions. As Station Manager of SkidTV, our college TV station, I provided group and personal instruction in video filming and editing procedures, as well as the use of equipment.

As a tutor, I have always strived to provide multiple methods of instruction. I've given lectures to groups and single students, provided graphs and visual lessons, created study sheets and informational packets, and conducted question and answer sessions, as well as guiding self-instructed learning. While tutoring, I prefer to know topics of particular struggle beforehand so I can better prepare multiple methods of teaching.

I strive to be flexible, but do ask for 24 hours notice of cancellation. I am currently only accepting students for online lessons, but I am willing to work with any scheduling or timezone issues. I am also willing to negotiate discounted hourly rates for sessions exceeding one hour or scheduling of multiple sessions.

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.

Video Production

At Skidmore College, I was a member, then Programming Director, and eventually Station Manager of SkidTV, our school TV station, where I was responsible for purchasing, maintaining, and training in video equipment, as well as filming and editing video pieces. I was also employed at the school media lab for most of my college career, where I performed similar roles for the school population at large.
