Your Experienced Teacher

Steve Kerchner

Middlebury College, BA ChemistryLesley University, MS Education
Professional Resume Link

30+ years of experience in College/High School/Middle School specializing in Math (Alg-Calculus) & Science (Chem/Physics) including AP Level Classes.

When I’m not teaching, I love to spend time with my wife and daughter on adventures on rivers and in the mountains or flying planes!

What his students and parents say.....

Before starting tutoring, I was not sure that I would even pass Conceptual Physics. With Steve’s help, I not only am passing the course, but I am getting better grades than I thought were possible. Steve is extremely helpful and works at whatever pace is best for the student. I am totally satisfied with my experience with Steve and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a tutor.

After utilizing several ‘Franchise Tutoring’ outlets, we found these outlets did not provide adequate (1 on 1) opportunities, frequent changes in tutors (no continuity) as well as lack of depth in their science and math abilities. As such, we made the switch to Be Smart Tutoring and couldn’t be more pleased w/the academic progress our daughter has made in several short months. Moreover, we found him to be patient, kind and an outstanding motivator for our daughter…his technical skill to teach at all levels of understanding as well as the tailored techniques for each student is just outstanding! We are so pleased with the outcome, our daughter is now at ease now with her studies along with increased confidence! We appreciate you Steve, thank you for all your help and support!!

Steve was an amazing Precalculus teacher. He was able to help me become a confident math student. He met me before school and during my free periods during the school day. I have never had a teacher that was so dedicated and patient when helping his students.

In both IB math and IB chemistry, Steve developed my problem solving skills and made topics clear and understandable by sharing real world examples that I could use to frame my thinking. He is always there for me. My confidence has never been higher.

Chemistry may be a difficult subject for many students including myself. To understand this course, you have to have the right person like Steve who can explain the step by step process to the solution. Steve has been a tremendous help and I appreciate his patience and compassion.

Steve is an amazing chemistry tutor. His goal is to make you be the best, not just get an A. With him, you learn advanced knowledge and techniques which you will not learn in class.
