About us

MyScience Prep is owned and operated by identical twin brothers Mark and Jack Kernion, professional science educators with over sixty years of combined teaching experience. After starting careers as ceramic engineers in 1981, both have spent the past three and a half decades teaching in large suburban school districts prior to retiring from the public school system. Mark is the co-author of Chemistry the Easy Way (published by Barron’s Educational Series) whose new 6th edition was released in July 2019. Mark's most recent publication is an AP Chemistry Lab Manual for Homeschoolers. Jack recently completed a doctoral program in STEM education at the University of Pittsburgh specializing in scientific argumentation. In 2013, he was named an Educator of Distinction by the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.

What students are saying about the classes we offer:

Mr. K is a truly remarkable teacher who is very generous with his time and knowledge and provides you with all the materials you need to succeed. He is also approachable and never lost his patience with me although there were plenty of occasions to do so. When I had questions about anything, he would often respond within minutes, allowing me to quickly get past whatever I was stuck on. I have come to a deep appreciation of the big ideas of chemistry under his guidance. In summary, this is a fantastic course that I would highly recommend to any hardworking student who wants to tackle something uniquely interesting and challenging.

Taking Physics C with Dr. Kernion changed the way I think about the world. I learned about intriguing phenomena like the precession of a bicycle wheel and electromagnetic induction. At the same time, the course strengthened my mathematical skills, making Calculus BC a breeze. And I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Any time I had a question, I emailed Dr. Kernion. He would quickly send me a detailed response that almost always cleared up my confusion. Dr. Kernion isn't one of those teachers that discourages debate, either. He is perfectly willing to exchange 4 or 5 emails with a student who is (like I so often was) convinced that he or she is right. All of this is to say that Dr. Kernion works hard to get to know all of his students individually.

On a different note, I felt well-prepared for the AP Exam. Dr. Kernion's extensive, month-long review made the exam feel routine, almost ho-hum. This course definitely enhanced my interest in physics. I'm taking Physics 3 concurrently at my local university next fall, and I know that I'm ready after taking Dr. Kernion's courses. I'm now planning on majoring in physics.
