About Kevin

I taught in Baltimore County Public schools for 18 years. I taught middle school science and math for four years. Then I taught Biology and Chemistry at the high school level for 14 years. I left the public school system because I felt they were focusing more on state tests and scores than true understanding of the material. I felt very discouraged when the administration continued to add students to standard and low level classes of 30 plus students and refused to give me a support teacher or aide. In this environment, it is not possible to provide individual assistance or attention to students who need it.

When a teacher can sit with an individual student and have the student explain what they are having difficulty with, it is much easier to help the child achieve true understanding. A good teacher can explain concepts from multiple directions and help students pick the one that works best for them. I feel that I am a very good teacher because I always tried to provide my students with several paths to solve problems in chemistry. As long as a child could explain the steps they used to solve a problem, I always gave them full credit. I also made them show all of their work or steps so I could help them redirect their thinking when they went off track.

I feel that by working one on one with students it is possible to help them achieve true understanding of the concepts. I always try to provide students with multiple ways to approach a concept or problem, so that they can choice the one that best fits their way of processing information.

Please feel free to contact me to schedule a meeting. I work another job from 5:00 AM to 2:00PM (Monday through Friday), but am available evenings and all day on weekends for tutoring sessions.
