About Kevin

I have had a passion for education and assisting in the education of others since 2011 now when I began my journey in college as a non-traditional student. I became very active on campus becoming the Georgia Regional Vice President for Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, being a mentor to local high school seniors preparing them for college and tutoring them to raise their math and reading scores for the SAT/ACT/ and high school graduation testing, while working as a teacher's assistant for mathematics, and taking 15 credit hours.

Being that I have tutored and taught students varying from ages 10 to 65 there is an insurmountable feeling in helping someone conquer something they may struggle or need more interaction with. Education is more than simply ingesting and digesting the presented material, education can empower an individual beyond imagination.

Taught 9th (English I), Pre-AP 9th, 10th (English II), and 6th grade language arts. A common theme across all grades was a struggle connecting to reading, poor grammar usage due to a low vocabulary/ reading lexile, inevitable leading to minimal writing skill.

Within the first two months of being a secondary English teacher I received the Teacher of the Month award in September of 2015. Though abruptly transferred by the school district to 6th grade in November I was able to foster a 12% increase in student test scores from 8% to 20% in the short semester that I had with them.

If you want someone who will not only empower you through academic support, but foster your growth beyond a skill set please reach out to me. I have a very flexible schedule. Do not let language be a barrier, I taught predominantly Hispanic children, so if English isn't your native tongue do not worry. Hablo un poco Espanol.
