About Kevin

I have worked as a professional and certified Medical Illustrator for over 30 years, and returned to school a few years ago to earn my teaching certificate in secondary Biological Science. I completed my student teaching here in RI. While enjoying the classroom experience, I particularly enjoyed the 1-on-1 time spent helping students after school with any questions they had or with concepts they had trouble understanding.

My illustration work included illustrating many textbooks in Biology and Anatomy & Physiology, along with developing patient education materials, creating images for medical journals, etc. Classroom teaching and tutoring seemed a natural extension of the educational nature of my professional artwork. For these reasons, I value visual literacy and understand the impact visuals can have in conveying information during the learning process.

While never having taught full-time, I have had a few long-term substitute teaching jobs, including stints at a high school and a middle school. I've also had almost 2 years of daily substitute experience, so I'm quite familiar with both academic and behavioral expectations of today's high school and middle school students.

While being a relatively even-tempered, humorous individual, I do value the preparation, effort and focus required by both student and tutor in the learning process, and expect both individuals to be "on task" during any tutoring session.
