About Kevin


Bio

I love math and solving problems using math and computer programs. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, earning excellent grades while being challenged in all kinds of theoretical and practical math subjects.

I enjoy trying to present math concepts in a unique manner to try to connect with the student. Textbooks usually only present a problem in one manner and that one size fits all approach simply doesn't work for everyone.

I love math and solving problems using math and computer programs. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, earning excellent grades while being challenged in all kinds of theoretical and practical math subjects.

I enjoy trying to present math concepts in a unique manner to try to connect with the student. Textbooks usually only present a problem in one manner and that one size fits all approach simply doesn't work for everyone.

I am "Semi-Retired" and tutoring to use my practical math and computer background to help people of all ages. In addition to private tutoring, I tutor part time in a walk in math lab at a community college. This has given me a chance to work with a diverse group of students on a wide variety of math related subjects. This is challenging but also very rewarding and helps keep me sharp and broadens my skills.

I have used Microsoft Access actively over the past 15 years (starting with Access 97) to solve a variety of business problems. This has included using it to build a multi-user maintenance tracking application that was used for 10 years and a daily schedule forecasting system. I am well versed in the creation of forms, tables, data relationships, queries, custom reports, macros, VBA code. Much of the work in have done also involved automated data import and export.

I have strong math skills that were developed by a Mechanical Engineering curriculum in college. I tutored my three children through high school and college math as well as helping my wife prepare for the graduate school exam. I recently started tutoring in Algebra and other math subjects. I like to emphasize two things in my tutoring; 1. An understanding of why the concept works 2. Using methods of double checking answers whenever possible.

Great Tutor

Kevin helped me through my Excel and Access assignment. Kevin went above and beyond to look for my text book online to help us get more of an understanding of my assignment. I am very pleased and will definitely use him in the future.

Easy to follow, patient

Kevin taught me the little things I should have been using all along- Range names, conditional formatting, Absolute and relative cells, Formatting such as border clean-up and format painter and formatting a table, data validation, etc.- all things I know I'll use. Can't wait for the next lesson!

Excellent Teacher

Kevin is a patient and excellent listener and teacher. I started out with a general impression of what I wanted to learn in Microsoft Excel--Kevin helped me to identify and articulate my goals and what factors I should focus on to improve my Excel skills--invaluable guidance. In essence, Kevin is not only teaching me Microsoft Excel skills, he is more importantly teaching me how to learn on my own!
