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
“Thanks to Kevin, I was able to pass a college level Chemistry Course. I am an older student with moderate ADD and extremely intimated by math. Not only did I pass, I was able to get a B+ in the class. Kevin was extremely patient, knowledgable and never made me feel stupid. He was really good at explaining Chemistry in the most basic way possible without it being boring or overwhelming. Thank you Kevin! I graduated Magna Cum Laude, Thanks to you…”
“I believe that the foremost idea to consider when determining a proper tutoring center is to remember that teaching is an art. It is an engagement and personal relationship between a student and his teacher. Dr. Anderson has become a mentor to me. Not only does he engage and teach at a sophisticated level, but he has also taught me the applications of ideas on everyday life. He has taught me how to think at an elevated level. That is something that I would have never received in my school. Thus, you must make a choice when deciding Fractal Academy over any other tutoring center: Do you want your son/daughter to learn and think at the foremost level or do you want them to just get by with robotic systematic approaches? If it it the former, Fractal is the place for you. If it is the latter, you are doing a disservice to your child.”
“I worked closely with Kevin and Yayoi for seven weeks to prepare for the DAT during the summer of 2014. Both Kevin and Yayoi are not only brilliant in the sciences, but understand the fundamentals of educating and communicating with their students in a matter that makes learning easy and enjoyable. Kevin explained shortcuts to conquer problems in general and organic chemistry that are needed for high performance on the DAT. Yayoi answered all my biology questions without hesitation and her colorful, textbook like, drawings turn difficult biology concepts only explained in literature into easy to understand visuals. I traveled over an hour and a half to attend sessions at Fractal Academy and I am so grateful to have discovered them. If you have questions please ask Kevin for my contact information.”
“Definitely the place to go if you want to improve and actual understand what you are learning. I originally came for help with organic chem 2, i went from a C to finishing the class with an A. After, i came back for help with studying for the DAT, and they made sure i was ready for the test. Without a doubt this is the place to come to!”
“I worked with Kevin a few years ago as I was going through my pre-req course load with the intention of going to chiropractic school. Going through the basic sciences at the time, especially organic chemisty was a very hard and stressful process. I’m not sure I would have gotten through with the grades that I needed without Kevin. Now 2.5 into practice, I can honestly say that if not for Kevin, I may not be where I am today.”
