Successful Math Tutor — Recently retired high school math teacher
I recently retired from a local private high school. 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…
Mindy R. from Atlanta, GA 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.
Ingrid R. from Chevy Chase, 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.
Joan M. from Silver Spring, MD 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.
Cindi B. from Boyds, MD 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!
Linda A. from Chevy Chase, MD 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).
John D. from Brookeville, MD 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.
