I retired from a local private high school in 2012. I have taught all math subjects including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB. I have taught math for 44 years. I have tutored students privately over the last 30 years. When I tutor, I usually meet for one hour. If I find the student is not responding, or has difficulty staying on task, I stop and talk to them about what interests them most. This usually gets them focused and we can continue....
Reviews
PreCalc - Rational Functions/ Asymptotes. Kevin was able to set up a great teaching relationship with in the first few minutes of the session. We look forward to the next session. The stress of PreCalc is leaving the house. Thank you!

My son was not doing very well in Geometry until we hired Kevin to tutor him. My son was always saying he had and could manage on his own but the grades proved differently. But with Kevin's patient and kind support his grades has significantly improved. I am so very thankful for Kevin support and help with my son. He is a wonderful tutor!!!

Very knowledgeable and wonderful. My daughter enjoyed working with him very much and helped her a great deal making algebra simpler.

Kevin has been helping Carrie with her Algebra 2. He's very kind and effective. We appreciate his ability to work around our scheduling as well. I would definitely recommend him to any student who needs help with math. He seems to truly enjoy what he's doing.

Kevin was on time and he was very patient with my son. He answered all questions that was asked and was very knowledgeable. He was professional with great communication skills. Thank you so much Kevin for helping my son. I appreciate all that you have done.
- Kayon D. from Silver Spring, MD
Kevin really takes his time and provides detailed notes for my son to review and reference later. Kevin's demeanor and patience really helped make my son feel comfortable working with him.
- Sini C. from Ashton, MD
He is a wonderful tutor. Our 16 year old daughter went from confused to "now I get it", with Kevin. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone that wants to help their kids improve in any math subject or level.
- Michael J. from Fulton, MD
My daughter spent only 40 minutes with him but she learned enough to know that he would be a great tutor for her.
- Sandi S. from Clarksville, MD
Kevin taught my son Pre-Calculus. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. My son said Kevin seems to enjoy teaching a lot and is a patient and very good tutor.
- Deanna B. from Gaithersburg, MD
Kevin was terrific with my daughter - in just six weeks they covered almost an entire pre-calculus class so that she could be on track for next year. He was patient, calm and really knew how to work with her and help keep her on task.
- Jodi G. from Bethesda, MD
Kevin is very patient and thorough in his teaching style as well as in explaining content. We have already seen a higher level understanding of complex math concepts and marked improvement in test scores.
- Andrea K. from Clarksville, MD
Kevin came into a situation with my high school freshman where we needed to have a thorough review and prep for my son's Geometry class. He was able to quickly grasp where and what materials needed to be worked on and gave my son the confidence to do well on his first high school exams.

Kevin has been tutoring two of my high school daughters for several weeks (geometry and pre-calculus w/analysis) and they've both found it very helpful. It's been particularly valuable before tests. Kevin is clear, concise, and very patient. Another bonus is how flexible he is. Recently, one of my girls discovered an upcoming test in two days that wasn't previously scheduled. Kevin was booked on the night we needed him, but called the day before to advise us that he'd had a cancellation and could make it after all. We were most appreciative. The girls are both having a great experience and have more confidence going into tests.

Both of our children are significantly benefiting from Kevin's first-class math tutorials. His 40 years of teaching experience and ability to apply math tangibly to real life problems make him extremely effective. He communicates clearly and asks questions to guide their math problem solving (which makes our kids have to think!). He is patient with our son, who has Asperger's, and has been able to help him overcome frustration with a few areas that he initially had trouble grasping. Our daughter, who is a 11 year old math wiz, has been super motivated by Kevin's ability to throw math challenges at her and help advance her interest in higher level problem solving. Kevin is a real scientific, trained mathematician whose intelligence is evident but so is his humility and kindness. The guy has a deft touch with math. He's definitely someone who we could use to tutor the kids throughout high school. We could not be happier. Best WyzAnt tutor we've had (and we've been quite happy with WyzAnt's talented tutors in a number of areas).

Kevin was absolutely fantastic. He explained things to my daughter. She was comfortable with him and asked questions when she needed clarification. I won't hesitate to use him again and highly recommend him. Updated 7/2013 Kevin continues to be a fantastic tutor. He is able to explain concepts to my daughter so that she can fully grasp & understand them. He is aware of where common areas of confusion may arise and helps her with those, and is patient and thorough w/his explanations and in responding to her questions. I attribute my daughter's good grades in math last year to Kevin's tutoring, and am anticipating good grades again this upcoming year. Thank you Kevin! We continue to be so extremely happy with Kevin as a tutor. My daughter's math grades have gone up considerably since he's been tutoring her. Even more importantly, her self confidence in math has increased. After working with Kevin, she believes she can solve the problems and has the tools and strategies to figure it out. My only regret is that he isn't a teacher at her school! Thank you Kevin!

Kevin is a very good tutor. My daughter is gaining confidence and knowledge working with him. One thing that impresses me is that he is willing to adjust his schedule based on her test schedules. I appreciate the flexibility. One session she had spent the school day taking the PSAT. He was very understanding, knowing she was fried, and they made the best of the session. He is a very good tutor and makes her feel confident.
- Joan M. from Silver Spring, MD
Kevin has helped my son several times with his algebra II class and and brought him back on solid ground. Great tutor, very experienced.
- Ingrid R. from Chevy Chase, MD
Kevin has worked with my boys on both algebra and geometry. He has been great at helping my them to get a better understanding of their work. I would highly recommend him as a tutor as he has many many years of teaching experience and is extremely dependable.
