NC State University (Political Science)
As a teacher and communicator, my goal is simple: To leave you better for having spent time with me. Nothing is more exciting than being able to communicate effectively. And nothing is more frustrating than understanding something but not being able to share it clearly or get your point across. Public Speaking does not have to be a scary experience. Learning does not have to be a drag! Speaking effectively with energy and correct grammar is one of the biggest confidence builders AND it's critical for success. I've lived and-or worked in a dozen states from Florida to Maine. I enjoy teaching people how to present themselves better as communicators. For more than 30 years I've been on the radio and in the media at some level. I've taught Public Speaking at Northampton Community College and was a guest teacher in Bucks county schools.I sell Real Estate full time, have been married 22 years and am a father of two boys 8 & 11. My BA Degree is in Political Science from NC State University in Raleigh NC. History, Pop Culture and Political Science are all my passions. These topics can be entertaining and rewarding. I've given hundreds of speeches and presentations and read everything I can get my hands on to stay sharp. You can't learn a lot without laughing a little. Make it memorable and people will remember it!
Thank you for taking the time to review my information.

I am very happy with Ken so far. I will continue with him. He has points I never thought of.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Basic American History is a description of the people and events that shaped our laws and government then and now. How have these people and events changed over time?
The way you say something means a lot. The structure of what you say must make sense or you don't make sense. There is always a best way to say something. Studying English (grammer, syntax) gives you options in expressing yourself.
How do governments work and what is their structure? This topic covers the role citizens play in government and the creation of government(s); the basic components of local, state & Federal Government; and the election process.
Grammar consists of the rules that govern the words we use and how we use them. We can't make up our own words and punctuation and expect to be taken seriously and understood.
Before there was spellcheck, we had to use our brains. Some people accept mistakes in your written work but most people don't. Don't lower the value of your ideas because of sloppy writing.
I currently host on talk radio and am a professional speaker. Public Speaking is more than just leaning on a podium. It involves basic speech and presentation organization, stage craft and the ability to write an outline and follow it. Choosing a topic and understanding your audience are also important. Two of the most important things are preparation and practice; although some people think they can wing it, very few can.
Reading is the foundation of learning most things. Remembering what you've read is most important.
A word is worth a thousand pictures. Choose your vocabulary wisely. It's amazing how many words there are yet we only use a fraction of them. With the correct words your communication is always effective and understood. Grow your vocabulary every day and you'll grow with it.
