Studying mathematics at a university level opened my eyes to the beauty behind the subject. It made me see the world differently. The laptop I am using to type these words was built by the magic of mathematics along with the desk that supports the laptop. Everything that surrounds us can be described using the precise language of mathematics. Yet, math is widely regarded as the worst subject ever created. I wish to change that.

Kevin has been the only tutor to help my son succeed in PreCalculus. My son has tried many tutors with no success. My son states that Kevin is able to break down the information in a way that helps him understand it and and a better communicator than his high school teacher. Kevin is awesome!

algebra 1 |
Years of experience tutoring Algebra. I am able to anticipate and locate the source of confusion for specific topics after numerous hours of communicating with a variety of students. |
algebra 2 |
When I first started off tutoring, I received many requests for Algebra assistance. Through multiple students, I became familiar with the curriculum and know what lessons most students have trouble understanding. Algebra covers a lot of foundation skills, so I recognize the importance of the subject. |
calculus |
Back when I was tutoring students at Virginia Tech, there was one semester where all my students were in Calculus I. This allowed me to hone this course. I am still working on my Calc II skills, so if you need help with anything after integration, you may want to consider another tutor! |
grammar | |
geometry |
We are constantly surrounded by mathematics and its applications. I love teaching Geometry since this observation can be made directly through the buildings around us and even the table we are working on. Some say you need to have a visual mind to succeed in Geometry, but I offer multiple explanations so that anyone can understand the concepts. |
prealgebra |
Students will be using Algebra throughout their high school and college years, so I recognize the importance of having a solid foundation in this subject. This motivates me to thoroughly cover all the topics in Algebra that I know for a fact will show up again in my students' lives. I am able to see the bigger picture so that my students will be successful not only in their current course, but in their future math classes as well. |
precalculus |
Precalculus deals with the encompassment of trigonometry, the unit circle, and high-order algebraic equations. For many students, the connection between these concepts may seem nonexistent, but this is where my role as a tutor comes into play. I have the ability to see the bigger picture within the course while also making my teachings relevant for the future of my students. |
trigonometry |
I took college courses that focused on teaching trigonometry. I know the reoccurring areas that students struggle with and how to handle them. Trigonometry is born from the unit circle, and I'll be able to demonstrate that clearly. |
writing |
My earliest memory of teaching takes place in my own home where I taught my younger sister how to read and write. Even though I studied mathematics in college, writing has remained a constant in my life. Whether it be formal essays, journals entries, poetry, or a to-do list, there will always be room to write. |
elementary math |
The hardest part about tutoring elementary level mathematics is certainly not the content itself, but the explanation. This is where I excel. I have taught kids how to read time on a clock as well as finding proportions between two triangles. I believe this comes from my ability to translate the language of math into casual dialogue. |
