with Yayoi K. - B.S. - Rutgers
My background is a B.S.N. from the College of Nursing at Rutgers University in Nursing/ Psychology. I have been teaching/tutoring various subjects in the sciences and mathematics for over 5 years at high school and collegiate levels. I have taught sciences for undergraduate and graduate programs at Rutgers University, Drexel College of Medicine, and The Commonwealth Medical College. I am patient and cater to my students' needs for understanding the concepts rather than focusing on just solving the problem.
I have previously been an MCAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT instructor for The Princeton Review where I was awarded the "Top MCAT Instructor Award" and the "Top Grad Instructor Award" for the East coast region. My goal is to break down complicated concepts for my students to ensure they have a deep understanding of the material. I look forward to working with each and every student and I take pride in mentoring and guiding students through these difficult courses and tests to help the students reach their goals."

Reviews for Yayoi K. - B.S. - Rutgers
“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 and Yayoi at Fractal Academy the summer before taking the DAT. I was in a tight spot since I was taking still taking organic chemistry while starting my DAT prep. I am very self motivated but Yayoi and Kevin honestly helped me with any detail related to the DAT or the classes I was taking. They encouraged me and helped build my confidence with science and math significantly. I couldn’t even try to stump them with any of my questions. Tests in general make me a little anxious and knowing that I could throw any question at them anytime eased much of my anxiety. After I completed the DAT, (and completely exceeding my expectations) I thought my tutoring days were behind me…. But, I started biochemistry the next semester was so relieved to know that if I needed Kevin or Yayoi they would let me ask them any and all questions I had about the subject. Ps. I live in California and was skeptical about the time difference and Internet sessions at first but it was flawless. The Skype sessions with the use of an online whiteboard was even better than meeting in person for me (I did all my tutoring in my pajamas!) Pss. I got into my #1 choice school and I think that Kevin gave me the confidence I needed to even apply there.. I can’t thank Fractal enough!!!”
“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.”
“I have worked with Kevin for years and he has been an excellent teacher and role model. He is extremely helpful and accommodating, guaranteed to make every learning experience enjoyable and productive.I also worked with Yayoi who is one of the best and most knowledgeable biology teachers in the area! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for help in the sciences, especially in the higher level ones.”
“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!”
