Nevin Katz Tutoring |&nbps; | 


Hi there! My name is Nevin Katz. I have worked as a professional tutor and coach since 2009. Having been with Lexington Tutoring, Inc. for over eleven years, I now tutor and coach via my private practice, Nevin Katz Tutoring, LLC. I tutor a range of academic subjects and also do homework coaching, test prep, and writing coaching.


I hold an Ed. M. in Teaching and Curriculum from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

I graduated from Swarthmore College with a B.A. in Biology, having completed additional work in Chemistry and Education.

I earned a Massachusetts Teaching Certification in Biology for Grades 5-12 in 2001.

I hold a Software Engineering Certificate from the Harvard University Extension School.

Tutoring Experience

I have worked with Lexington Tutoring for 11.8 years prior to entering private practice.

I have eight years' experience teaching science prior to becoming a tutor.

I am a homework coach, a science / math / humanities tutor, a writing coach, and an experienced test prep specialist.

I have tutored Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, Meteorology, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, Calculus, U.S. History, World History, Ancient History, and English.

Teaching and Curriculum Development

Prior to joining Lexington Tutoring, I had 8 years of teaching experience at the secondary level.

I am the author and illustrator of the Dr. Birdley Teaches Science.

Technology and Writing

When I am not working with students, I work as a web and app developer at Education Development Center.

I also write about technology, science, and chess on Medium and on my web development blog.

Education Development Center

When I am not working with our students, I work as a web and app developer at Education Development Center (EDC). In my role there, I manage and lead the coding effort on a number of projects involving web and app development.

I work on writing proposal requests, expectations, and course content and consults on the best eLearning solutions for particular projects and custom-building virtual simulations, apps, online courses, and websites, all intended for digital learning.

Online Learning

Over the course of my time at EDC, I developed extensive experience with supporting peoples' online learning. As an online course developer and facilitator, I have used Learning Management Systems (LMS’s) such as Moodle and Blackboard to build and teach online courses, and have built websites to function like LMS’s by giving them registration functionality, discussion forums, and learner progress tracking. As more courses develop online learning components, I have found this experience helpful in guiding my students.
