After missing almost a week of school, I felt very behind in AP Econ. Worried I would never catch up with all my work, I went on WyzAnt and immediately found Kevin. I decided to give it a try, and after just 1 session, I felt much more relieved. Kevin helps work through your problems and questions. Instead of just telling you the answer, you work together so that you understand the process of getting there. Kevin is easy to get in touch with, and a great listener. I recommend him as a tutor.

"Dr. Physics and Mr. Math"
If you are looking for someone to help you where others have failed, or if you just want the best, then I'm definitely your tutor. Key focus must be on the student overcoming any mental barriers he/she may have to understanding the subjects. I teach concepts first and test taking second. If you know the concepts, the test results follow, but test taking strategies are also emphasized.

it was an initial appointment and we reviewed some basics. It was a discussion regarding basic accounting/statistics and we looked at what an appropriate game plan should be.

"Working for Success"
I absolutely love working with students. I believe each student is unique. Every child learns in a different way, and I try my hardest to have them succeed in their own learning way. I plan to work with each student as an individual. Each and every student is unique in their learning styles. It is about adapting work to meet their style, to explain things in ways that will make sense. Children are our future and we need to prepare them :)
I'm currently a certified special education (K-12),... ... More

"Expert Tutoring in Advanced Math"
I have helped dozens of students complete their General Education Development tests including Math, Science and the other subjects. My approach is tailored to each individual so that more time is spent on areas of weakness and less on areas of strength, although we do consolidate these by continuous practice.
Most students I've worked with have limited time so my solution is to cut straight to the chase, give them the exact data they need and build the skills necessary to pass the test. Extraneous material is avoided at all costs.
I have a B.S. and Ed.M. from Boston University and have completed more than 40 hours of post graduate work at Fairfield University, Oslo (Norway) University, Uppsala (Sweden) University and City College, N.Y. My teaching and substituting experience have covered grades K-12 including the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
