My teaching method is to first understand the needs of the student and their background, then try to work through problems step-by-step until they are proficient at the problems by themselves. With individual practice, they should be able to tackle any similar problems from then on!
3 Year VEX Robotics Alumni, 2x Worlds division first seed and signature event winner. I'm deeply interested in physics and have a desire to improve my statistics knowledge as well. I graduated from Zionsville Community High School and will be attending Northwestern University this fall.

He is a principled, self-controlled, educated smart person. He just graduated from Zionsville High School with Summa Cum Laude Honors and will go to Northwestern University to pursue his mechanical engineering career. I think he will be a great Superprof tutor.
Kevin is one of my close friends and has helped me a lot over the years. Kevin is a very knowledgeable person who is good at explaining concepts in a way that is understandable and helpful. Personally, Kevin has helped teach me concepts in math, chemistry, and engineering, all while being super friendly and helpful. I really recommend Kevin to be a SuperProf member.
I know Kevin from several years of Robotics together. He has been both a impactful teammate and helpful whenever I have questions. He is very knowledgeable about physics and upper-high school level math.
