Bio

As a Chemistry and Physics Instructor at local community colleges over the past several years, I have discovered that many students struggle with science classes like chemistry and physics because they lack the necessary math skills. If they improve their math skills, the study of science becomes a more enjoyable experience. If you need to improve your math skills for a math class or a science class, I can help you.

As a Chemistry and Physics Instructor at local community colleges over the past several years, I have discovered that many students struggle with science classes like chemistry and physics because they lack the necessary math skills. If they improve their math skills, the study of science becomes a more enjoyable experience. If you need to improve your math skills for a math class or a science class, I can help you.

I have also found that students who can see the connections between scientific concepts and the real life, are more interested in the science topics and perform better overall in science class. I draw on my experience in industry to make the concepts covered in science class more relevant to the everyday world (the real world). If you are struggling with your chemistry or physics course because there seems to be no connection to the real world, I can help you.

I hold a Masters degree in Chemical Physics from the University of Pittsburgh and Bachelors degree in Chemistry with a concentration in Mathematics from Saint Vincent College. As a Hydrologist for the US Geological Survey for six years, I studied the impact of various land use on the quality of groundwater. As a Manager of Environmental Compliance for a Private Company for about seven years, my main focus was operational oversight of the PA DEP permitted Industrial Waste Processing Facility to ensure environmental/safety compliance. I also developed treatment plans for industrial wastewater. In my role, I also served as the liaison with the public and regulatory agencies.

Logic,

Logic

A study of Logic includes both the modes of reasoning and the use of valid reasoning. Logic is used in most intellectual activities, including philosophy, science, mathematics and computer programming. Logic examines general forms of arguments. Within mathematics, it is the study of valid inferences. Aristotle established logic as a formal discipline, giving it a fundamental place in philosophy. In addition to learning about the history of logic in the study of ancient philosophy, I also studied the practical application of logic and reasoning with several other college courses including Advanced Logic. I have also practiced the application of logic in my extensive studies in science and mathematics.

Very helpful!

Kevin is a great tutor who is able to explain things in easier terms for me to understand. His tutoring is extremely helpful and gives me confidence in my work that I did not have before!

Brianna, 9 lessons with Kevin

Knowledgeable and thorough tutor. Well versed in the ASVAB.

Emphasized subject area weaknesses. Did nice work explaining concepts and assisting with problem solving. Reinforced key concepts and points needing supplementary training to ensure content is understood.

Ed, 1 lesson with Kevin

Patient, explains why and how things happen

Kevin helped me with things I thought I could never understand, I felt like I understood nothing but after the session I feel confident for my chemistry exam.

Molly, 8 lessons with Kevin

Very professional and engaging

Very professional, knowledgeable, practical and patient. He seemed to care about what he was doing and having the student grasp the information. She was comfortable with him. We look forward to working with him again.

Leslie, 36 lessons with Kevin

Great Tutor

Kevin is an excellent tutor, very informative. He is also very punctual, and he responds very quickly every time I need a session.

Trisha, 13 lessons with Kevin

Highly Recommended

My son was apprehensive and uninterested at first but Kevin captured his attention. Grades improved to 'A'. On time for meetings and schedule is very flexible.

Asit, 5 lessons with Kevin

Patient and took his time

Kevin took 90 minutes with my son on that initial visit, and covered and reviewed a lot of material. My son was familiar with many of the concepts but the review helped. He continues to need help with figuring out how to approach problems and how to know which formulas or strategies to apply with a given problem. This may be the focus of future sessions.

Ana, 12 lessons with Kevin

Great Tutor

Kevin is a very patient and thorough tutor. He takes the time to ensure my son is fully comprehending the material and presents the material in a clear, concise manner.

Robin, 46 lessons with Kevin

I wish we had more math teachers like Kevin B.!!!

Kevin B. is very patient and excellent at explaining the steps it takes to get to the right answer. I am very pleased that we have met him and that he will continue to help our daughter as she prepares for her final!
