Words just cannot describe our appreciation for Kevin’s remarkable teaching and the tremendous support and care he has shown towards my son’s learnings. In just a short timeframe with Kevin, my son has taken a huge leap forward in his understanding and confidence in Mechanics. Initially, we took Kevin on for help on my son’s Mechanics but he has recently been instrumental in helping my son with his Pure as well. Kevin is truly a gem. My son had other tutors in the past but none was able to effectively improve him. We are very blessed to have found Kevin at the crucial time to the finals. We couldn’t be more please! You have my deepest thanks, Kevin!
