Nevin Katz

Hello, and welcome to Nevin Katz Tutoring. My name is Nevin, and I have enjoyed tutoring students in a range of subjects for the past 14 years. While I specialize in tutoring high school students, I have also worked with students at the Middle School, College, and Graduate School levels. I also have successfully prepared science and math teachers for their MTEL exams.

Areas of ExpertiseBiology, Chemistry, & Physics • Earth & Environmental Science • Math and Computer Science

Most students come to me seeking assistance with Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Math, and AP Computer Science. As I have deep experience with Earth and Environmental science, I also tutor students in these areas when needed. Additionally, I help students prepare for Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, and Calculus AP exams.

Additionally, I am available for writing coaching as well as tutoring in Humanities, such as History and English. With each subject, I focus on helping students develop effective study habits that improve performance.

See below for a more extensive list of subjects I work with students on.

Test Prep

A significant part of my work has involved preparing students for standardized tests, such as the ACT, SAT I & II exams, PSAT, SSAT, and ISEE. I also prepare teachers for the Science and Math MTEL exams. My general approach is outlined on my Test Prep page.

In-Person and Remote Options

I live in Lexington, Massachusetts and am available to tutor both remotely via Zoom and in-person if you are close by. While most of my students have lived in Lexington and other towns in Massachusetts, remote tutoring allows me to work with students in other states as well, such as Virginia and Rhode Island.

I can tutor in-person if you live in Lexington or if you can meet for sessions at the Cary Memorial Library. If you are interested in booking one or more sessions, feel free to email me at
