About Kenneth

My greatest passion in life is helping people get from where they are to where they want to be. With a Master of Education degree from Harvard University, a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, as well as teaching experience abroad, I have positioned myself to be able to coach, to tutor, and/or to nurture others.

My areas of tutoring expertise college essay writing, academic and creative writing, statistics, math, and test prep (SAT/GRE). I scored a 640 (equivalent to a 162) and 780 (equivalent to a 163) Quantitative and 6.0 (out of 6.0) Writing.

I infuse my sense of humor into nearly all aspects of my life, including my tutoring. A blue belt and certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor, I have truly come to appreciate the benefits of learning from, rather than fearing, my mistakes. This philosophy extends to my tutoring methods as well. Mistakes mean you're learning!

Feel free to reach out with any questions you have or to schedule your lessons.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I passed the TExES Math 4-8 and Math 8-12 exams required of aspiring teachers. This included basic math, algebra, geometry, trig, pre-calc, and probability & statistics. My approach is to simplify the more challenging topics through practical, everyday applications (whenever possible).

College Counseling

With five college degrees earned, I have extensive experience with essay and personal statement writing. Additionally, I understand the holistic approach taken by the top schools. As a result, I can give guidance on how to put one's best foot forward, so to speak.

GRE

I scored a 780 on my GRE Quantitative test (before they changed scoring models).

IELTS

In addition to a master of education from Harvard University, I also possess a 120-hour certificate for teaching English as a foreign language. Moreover, I have extensive academic writing experience including publications.

Writing

I have earned a MFA in Creative Writing with Distinction. Moreover, I am a published author, screenwriter, and lyricist. I have served as an editor of a peer-reviewed journal and have extensive experience with academic writing as well as college essay and statements of purpose.
