Yes I am the the Real Organic Oracle, Chemistry Sage, Physics Phenom, MCAT/DAT Magician and I also do a lot of Math prep too! MIT PhD Grad with an insane desire to educate and inspire! My passion is to work with students of all ages (Middle School through Graduate Programs) in Science and Math. My goal is to teach/mentor/inspire and help students gain confidence in the below subjects. I currently tutor Chemistry and Chemistry AP, Organic Chemistry, MCAT, DAT, Physics, Physics AP, Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Calculus courses to Middle/High School and College/Graduate students. I have a specific passion for Mentoring and helping Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental students get into Medical/Dental School. I look forward to helping you pass your Chemistry/Physics and Math courses! My educational background is B.S. in Professional Chemistry (Chemistry Major, Math and Physics Minors) from Eastern Michigan University, an M.S. from Michigan State University and a Ph.D.in Organic Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to becoming a full time Mentor/Tutor, I worked 4 years in the Pharmaceutical Business in New Jersey.
Teaching since 2002
Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry
Teaches ages 5+
Has background check
Kevin is an excellent tutor! He provides both a great mix of listening, speaking, and practical learning. I have been working with Kevin for almost two years, he has an incredible gift for teaching. He’s patient, supportive, and really knows how to motivate his students. Difficult subjects like organic chemistry and physics, which proves to be a challenge to so many of the students was made understandable to me by the able guidance and teaching by Kevin.
My son worked with Kevin for two years now. With Kevin’s tutelage, he felt extremely at ease with math and science subjects. He got 800 on both SAT II Math 2C and Chemistry, and a 5 on AP chem. The result speaks for itself.
I sought out help from Kevin for my MCAT preparation. I had taken the test once before and had scored poorly, but Kevin was confident that we would be able to get my score up to my desired range. I had always struggled with Math and Physics and this is where Kevin helped me the most. Physics concepts became simpler and I had wished that I had known about Kevin when I was taking these courses in college. Kevin and I systematically tackled every chem and physics topic that was tested on the MCAT and broke down test questions which I previously would never have been able to get right. For bio, I worked with Yayoi who simplified biochemistry and highlighted important concepts to remember. She also helped me with testing strategies which I was able to apply to the CARS and psych sections as well. Long story short, with the help of Kevin and Yayoi, I was able to increase my MCAT score by an incredible 16 points and was able to get accepted to my top choice medical schools. Words can’t describe the impact Kevin and Yayoi made on my application. I only wish I had found Fractal sooner!
