About Kevin


Bio

I am a 20-year educator, all in elementary and junior high schools, from Illinois. I recently moved to Conway to take over a family business, and now that the business is established, I am ready to work with kids again! Although I've never taught in South Carolina, I am interested in using my skills, talents, and expertise to help kids in elementary and junior high become better students by any means necessary!

I am a 20-year educator, all in elementary and junior high schools, from Illinois. I recently moved to Conway to take over a family business, and now that the business is established, I am ready to work with kids again! Although I've never taught in South Carolina, I am interested in using my skills, talents, and expertise to help kids in elementary and junior high become better students by any means necessary!

I am a fun-loving kind of guy that just loves working with kids and families. I enjoy having fun and making the time we spend together fun while getting work done! I can tutor pretty much any subject, and am interested in going beyond just school work...I can tutor sports! I am a 20+ year coach for baseball, basketball, and other sports.

I have 10 years' experience as an elementary teacher and taught Math subjects in each of those 10 years, as well as being a Principal of an elementary school allowed me to keep up with Math and the new skills in Math.

I have 10 years' experience as an elementary teacher and taught Reading and English subjects in each of those 10 years, as well as being a Principal of an elementary school allowed me to keep up with Reading and English as well as any new skills or areas of interest kids need to learn in order to pass standardized tests or local assessments.

I spent 10 years as an elementary teacher in Central Illinois. I spent 8 years as an elementary/junior high principal in Illinois as well.

I own a business so my scheduled is VERY flexible! I hope you consider at least meeting me so that I can show you my skills and qualifications are perfect for you! Whether you are 5 or 14 years old, I can work with anyone and work on any subject! I am a very flexible guy that can work around your schedule during the week or even weekends! Sports help? Sure! I am willing to do whatever!
