My experience with Kevin's style of teaching is that first of all he thoroughly understands what he teaches. He is a man who conscientiously and quickly determines what is necessary to reach the student's goal. He is honest and forthright and he explains and expands if needed. He does not waste time when handed a problem and is well organized making sure that the subject he is teaching makes sense. His style made it easy for me to feel empowered and confident in completing the tasks that I needed. He also have a keen sense of humor to lighten the pressure that sometimes goes along with learning a new subject.
