Friendly and patient Math and Science tutor - Chemistry and Biology are my specialties, based in Brookline Village and serving the greater Boston area.

Methodology

I'm Kevin Daly - I teach math and science specializing in chemistry and biology to high school and college students. I find that when students understand the underlying concepts and with a little practice, that these subjects are not so hard. I pride my self on being friendly and patient, tailoring my lessons to a student's needs.

I earned a BS and MS in Chemistry at Boston University, specializing in organic synthesis. I worked for 15 years in industry in a variety of projects, but mostly medicinal chemistry.

Background

I have been teaching students ever since I was a teaching fellow in graduate school at Boston University. I have taught hundreds of students of all skill levels. I love helping my students learn the material and improve their knowledge of the subjects.
