About Kevin


Bio

I am a 2015 graduate of Ursinus College, from where I received my Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics with minors in Statistics, Computer Science, and Secondary Education. Upon completing my semester of Student Teaching in the Spring-Ford Area School District during the fall of 2015, I am now a state certified teacher for grades 7-12 Math.

I am a 2015 graduate of Ursinus College, from where I received my Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics with minors in Statistics, Computer Science, and Secondary Education. Upon completing my semester of Student Teaching in the Spring-Ford Area School District during the fall of 2015, I am now a state certified teacher for grades 7-12 Math. I have taught at Stetson Middle School in the West Chester Area School District, Great Valley High School, and at Conestoga High School for about a semester each. I am now a full-time teacher at Frankford Friends School in Philadelphia. I have been a Wyzant tutor since December of 2015.

While I love being in the classroom and having 20 or so students at a time, I have found that the opportunity to work with students one on one is a very rewarding experience. Tutoring is a great opportunity for the tutor and student because the student's needs can be better addressed since the student is the sole focus of tutoring sessions. I feel that my experience studying the field of education and teaching allow me to understand where other teachers are coming from, in addition to knowledge and practice of my own education strategies, which allows me to provide the best possible help for a student.

Many students who are struggling with math are actually struggling with their math confidence or math motivation. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons math has become this scary monster for a lot of students, rather than the fun tool that it truly is. Because of this, I not only work to help students with particular mathematical concepts but also to build their confidence in math. I believe that every student is capable of succeeding, and it is important that they believe that too.

Thanks for looking over my profile! If you have any additional questions about me or would like to schedule a lesson, please reach out!

Flat out Excellent

Derek scored in the low 80's on his first two quizzes in Math (Algebra 1). We found Kevin and since he started working with Derek he has had a 93, 97 and a 97 on his tests. All points taken off were silly mistakes and nothing to do with knowledge. He is a little extra money but others we have tried who cost less did not do very well. You get what you pay for.

Terrific tutor!

Kevin has been an enormous help for my son in Algebra 2. We especially appreciate the fact that he went the extra mile to see him at the last minute the night before the final exam. He is a wonderful tutor and we will use him again next school year!

Great

Kevin is really great! He makes everything seem so easy and is so patient! He is always on time and very good at what he does. He has been really helpful for my son who is struggling all year with geometry.
