I was so impressed with Kevin and couldn't be happier that he reached out on thumb tack. I was in search of a tutor to help me pass the Elementary Education Math Content Test (very similar to the ACT math). Not only was Kevin able to teach in student friendly terms, he was SO knowledgeable of the types of questions and concepts I would need to know. Kevin was always very punctual and approachable when ever I did not understand something. We were able to meet before tutoring began to create a plan that we would follow together. By the last session, we covered every topic in the amount of time I hoped for. If you're in need of any math tutoring, I would HIGHLY recommend Kevin. Hands down the absolute best tutor I have ever been in contact with!!Jun 6, 2017Verified
Kevin is the most outstanding tutor I have ever met or even ever spoken with. He is a retired physician who had great teachers during his career and now works with students to try and have a positive influence on their lives. My son did both high school Math and Science tutoring with him AND also did ACT test preparation with him. My son's ACT scores went from 24 before working with Kevin to 33 after working with him for just 3 months! I cannot speak more highly of him. If you want your son or daughter to really excel - you better at least meet with this guy! Darren G. Northbrook, ILJan 11, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is flexible and dependent on the individual needs of the students in achieving their stated goals.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I meet with all parents and students for an initial meeting to get acquainted and to answer all questions in person. There is no charge for this initial meeting. If the customer decides to proceed with the tutoring, we then set up a weekly schedule to accommodate the student's needs. We work around all student school commitments, including all extra-curricular obligations.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a retired anesthesiologist who majored in Math and biology at Northwestern University before going on to graduate from Medical school at Indiana. I trained in anesthesiology in Ohio and then completed my fellowship training at UCLA School of Medicine. I now work exclusively with students to assist their educational progress. I specialize in test preparation for the ACT and SAT. My students achieve a 7-10 point increase in their ACT scores after working with me, and a 240-260 point increase in their SAT scores.
