with Kevin A. - Ph.D. - MIT
I have been working with students in Science and Math for over 15 years. I am passionate about working with students of all ages (middle school through graduate school level programs) – teaching, aiding, mentoring and inspiring students to gain knowledge and confidence in Science and Math. I have a particular passion for mentoring and helping Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental students prepare for the entrance exams necessary to get into medical and dental schools.
I currently tutor Chemistry and Chemistry AP, Organic Chemistry, MCAT, DAT, SAT Math, GRE Math, Physics, Physics AP, Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Calculus courses to Middle/High School and College/Graduate students.
I look forward to helping you pass your Chemistry/Physics and Math courses and excel on the MCAT and DAT!
My educational background is a 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.
My cancellation policy is 12 hours in advance and at this point in time due to high demand – I operate out of our Montclair – New Jersey Fractal Academy office in person. I always try to be flexible and work around your schedule. I also tutor a significant amount via Skype with interactive white board (try it for free for 15 minutes and see who great it works!). I do travel if my schedule permits.

Reviews for Kevin A. - Ph.D. - MIT
“I worked with Kevin a few years ago. I was an Exercise Science major at the time and taking chemistry II as a pre-req to get into Physical Therapy school. I was struggling to understand chemistry and wanted to get a good grade in the class. Kevin made chemistry make sense for me. My tests and assignments got much easier after working with Kevin. I’m currently working on my last year in PT school. Thanks Kevin!”
“I worked with both Kevin and Yayoi at Fractal Academy over the summer of 2014. They were both extremely helpful in my prep for the Dental Admissions Test. Yayoi worked with me on Biology and really knew her stuff. She would thoroughly explain topics in Biology that I was confused on, while making notes for me to take home so I could study them. Kevin helped me with the math, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and perceptual ability portion of the DAT. One thing that I really liked about Kevin’s teaching style is that he would always ask me what I wanted to work on. This allowed me to really focus on my weak subjects. Also, before I stepped into Fractal Academy, I had no idea how to even approach the perceptual ability portion of the test. On my real DAT, I conquered the perceptual ability! I would highly recommend Fractal Academy for anyone preparing for the DAT! They are the reason I did so well on the DAT, which helped me to become accepted to my dream school, The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.”
“I worked with kevin for 2 years, and I can confidently say that without him I would not have passed Chemistry or Physics. He is an excellent tutor that really knows how to simply the more complex material. He abled me to be able to think critically about the work on my own and in no time I was getting the hang of things! The tutoring sessions aren’t subjected to in person visits–he can even Skype in while I’m at college, which is extremely helpful! Kevin is a great tutor and has a real passion for math and science.”
“Kevin is basically a superhero when it comes to the sciences and basically any science heavy test like the MCAT. It is really difficult finding a science tutor nonetheless a great science tutor. However Kevin always delivers answers and I’m pretty sure after a couple of years being his student he only made one mistake. So if you are looking for a high quality science teacher he is the one! The way Kevin teaches is very different than your average science college professor in fact it is even better because after having him explain a concept to you, you actually realize what you are doing. I ( as well as my younger sister) had Kevin for practically every science or math class imaginable that he said he knew about (and that is quite a lot) and I don’t think I would have still had the confidence to keep pursuing medicine if it wasn’t for his teaching methods, short cuts, mental math help, homework help, and emergency sessions! He is available at almost any hour and can even do Skype sessions if he can’t get to you for a session or for any reason prior to meeting. I have no complaints when it comes to Dr. Anderson because even now as I prepare for my MCAT I know two things 1. I still remember what he taught me (that is a big deal) 2. If I need him for MCAT help (which I probably will in the near future) I know he will do whatever it takes to help me. Overall, if you want someone who is passionate about what he does and takes his job seriously to get you where you want to go in the sciences all you have to do is do your part and you’ll see results. His tutoring is worth every penny, I promise that.”
“Kevin is no ordinary tutor, but a mentor in every sense of the word. While, Kevin has taught me how to tackle specific problems, he also provides insight as to how to mimic his thought processes and, through this pedagogy, has certainly taught be how to be a more effective problem solver. His passion for what he does is contagious and his openness to change and new opportunities will surely allow him to succeed in everything that he does!” Top qualities: Personable , Expert , High Integrity
