SAT, Personalized Tutoring Services

Hello! My name is Kevin. I have been a tutor for over ten years and have instructed in classroom settings, ranging subjects from English Language Arts to Mental Health and Wellness to SAT Mathematics.

Algebra 1

My style of teaching math involves bringing in real-world examples of mathematics, especially for students who are dominantly hands-on learners. I have done research in various areas of mathematics to procure new strategies in order to accommodate students who have a difficult time using generic strategies in school. For students who have a greater proclivity for mathematics, I break down principles in order for them to better recognize patterns and methods that help them develop their advanced math skills.


Algebra 2

I've tutored mathematics for over five years and also taught in classroom settings at tutoring centers. Certain complementary presentations are available online and also by request for my students.


Biology

I primarily focus on medical biology for introductory students. This includes anything from general physiology to topics in epidemiology. However, I also focus on environmental sciences, linking life sciences to meteorology. In my own experience, I have incorporated a sizable amount of education in the sciences, and as a result, I have a myriad of topics in biology that I can tutor. In addition to personal tutoring lessons, I also have a constructed set of introductory health lessons for students interested in delving into the medical field.

Reading

I am graduate of language and literature, and have done extensive work related to these areas of study. I have also tutored literature for over five years. I've taught SAT Reading Prep, and also taught reading skills (including two books) in classroom settings.


Spanish

Spanish was my fourth language, complete with a B.A. I teach Spanish in the context of linguistics, for students who not only want to learn the fundamentals but the grammatical contexts of the language, especially in the United States. I have worked with both native and non-native speakers and both have their specific characteristics of learning that I am accustomed to.


Trigonometry


Writing

As a graduate of a language and literature program, I have compiled several methods of instructing various topics in writing: idea generation, content and organization, and grammar. I have taught writing in the classroom setting (academic essay writing), and focus primarily on improving overall writing techniques which can be applied to other fields (e.g. scientific/research papers, formal composition, etc.).

As a language major, I've had extensive study in literature as well as writing and grammar. I'm also well versed in several forms of poetry.

I specialize in SAT tutoring, complete with all presentations and materials provided. For the SAT reading section, I teach students how not only to approach reading comprehension questions, but also how to interpret literary texts, which becomes a skill used in higher level academia.


SAT Writing

A language student, I have studied English grammar extensively, material which translates directly to the SAT. I have structured lessons oriented towards the new SAT Writing Section by teaching concepts in both grammar and in essay organization.


Elementary Math

I have tutored math for over 5 years in a variety of math topics, and also in classroom settings, topics including SHSAT Math and SAT Math. I also have additional presentations and other material online.
