Teaching others is truly my number one calling. I've been doing so for nearly 20 years and have worked with students of all levels, from elementary to advanced college. I started as a peer chemistry tutor while working on my Bachelor's degree at CSU in Ft. Collins and went on to lead the IB and AP chemistry programs at Rampart High School in Colorado Springs after earning a Master's degree in science education from Colorado College. After nine years teaching at Rampart, I became the Head o...

Kevin helped me understand a lot of things that my teacher glossed over to help give me a much more solid foundation for chemistry! I would definitely recommend him if it's your first chemistry class or even if you just need to some review before a big test!

Even though my son was skeptical that an online tutor would be able to help him the way an in-person tutor has in the past (he thinks he knows everything) I convinced him to try it out. I can honestly say after every session I've asked how it went and it was positive... "he's really good", "he knows what he's doing" , or "that really helped a lot". We also live in NY so finding an IB tutor is a challenge. I thought it would be tricky to schedule lessons, but Kevin has always made himself available. He is truly dedicated to helping his students and knows how to do it.

My daughter took a single lesson with Kevin to improve her understanding of some chemistry concepts; he was immediately able to focus in on her problem areas and suggest some new ways of looking at the concepts and tips to improve her performance. We will definitely work with him again.

My daughter had a great session with Kevin? several Aha! moments and I loved seeing her easily grasp the concepts once explained by him ?looking forward to seeing her progress with regular sessions!

Kevin could not have been more helpful preparing my daughter for a AP chemistry exam. She was so much more confident and had a much better grasp of the information after her session with him. Outstanding tutor. Would hire again without reservation.

Kevin is thorough and attentive to the student. As they review homework questions, Kevin listens carefully and helps guide the thought process without giving the student the answer. Our son is getting a great deal out of his tutoring sessions with Kevin.

Would give more stars if I could. I spent days going over some chemistry concepts that were giving me a lot of trouble and I couldn?t score more than a 60% on my practice exams. After talking with Kevin for an hour I rolled through them with consecutive 100% scores. I'll be scheduling more lessons with him without question.

Kevin was allowed to help me build on an idea for a Chemistry IA lab that I needed for school, specifically the IB program. He was helpful in narrowing down my focus, first looking at what topics interested me and then seeing what possible questions could work. He was extremely helpful with the way he worded and explained each scientific fact we discussed and when he found certain documents online that we reviewed together while taking notes and making diagrams to remember and understand it easier. All in all Kevin is one of the best tutors I've encountered by far, clearly shown by how much experience he has, how he portrays his information, and how knowledgable he is in his major.

My son was struggling in AP chemistry. I reached out to kevin for help & he did a fabulous job. My son is so happy with the way he teaches & the 3 steps approach he taught him. He said he's really smart and is an amazing teacher who really knows how to teach. We'll use him for the rest of the year. Thank you Kevin!
- Mary F. from Lutz, FL
He did a great job teaching me and my brother chemistry and it will make a great impact on our upcoming school year. He has and will continue to prepare us for chemistry, helping us to get the best grades possible.

Kevin taught my daughter over a month as she was having a hard time with Honors Chem. Because of Kevin, she really understood the concepts where she was confused at her class and I could see the real difference in her confidence level. She could raise her grade by one level - THIS HAPPENED ONLY DUE TO KEVIN and she owes it completely to him. Kevin took time out of his family vacation so that he can answer her questions before her final examination, we truly owe Kevin a lot for this...I highly recommend Kevin for Chem classes, he is the best teacher!!

I gained a better understanding of the steps to successfully complete my chemistry work He?s understanding & offers great options to learning. I?ve so far had a couple of sessions. He?s easy to learn from which is really nice.
- Heather B. from Fallbrook, CA
Kevin really understands chemistry! I listened to the first few minutes of his lecture and having taken gen chemistry and organic chemistry myself years ago, it was very clear to me that Kevin is an exceptional teacher with a great way of explaining difficult concepts. My son?s response after the lesson was that Kevin is really good and helped him understanding a month?s worth of materials in one day and he ended up getting a 90 on his test. Both my twins ended up with As on the test and both said they wished he was their teacher in school. We will definitely continue with him.

Kevin went above and beyond to fill the knowledge gap my son had three weeks before the AP Chemistry test. My son had a lot more confidence after a few lessons with Kevin. I highly recommend Kevin for anyone who needs better understanding of Chemistry.
- Sandy L. from Palo Alto, CA
Thank you for your help with Philip. He was struggling with some of the Chem concepts recently and felt a lot better after the lesson.
- Fiona T. from Los Altos, CA
Kevin helped me understand the concepts behind buffers and titrations. Kevin even had the Ka and Kb constants for acids and bases in the problems we worked memorized!
- Trent R. from Monument, CO
He was great with my son. Very patient! My son learned more from Kevin in one session then he has in 6 months of class. We will definitely use him again in the near future.
- Danielle G. from Loma Linda, CA
My son has gotten clarity on the subject discussed with just two lessons so far. We look forward to our weekly sessions with Kevin.
- Daneeque W. from Lubbock, TX
Kevin helped my son with buffers, acids and bases, and equilibrium. He knew the topics extremely well and even helped my son understand the difficult problems on the AP test that related to his chapter. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone who needs help with Chemistry.
- Jeannie H. from Irvine, CA
enthusiastic, didactic, make chemistry easy , i recommended him 100%. my son is a senior in high school taking AP chemistry and I know we will maintain Kevin for the next 4 year if college
