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. Online or face-to-face, my greatest passion in life is helping people get from where they are to where they want to be.

My areas of tutoring expertise include college essay writing, academic and creative writing, algebra 1+2, geometry, SAT, ACT, GRE prep and high school and undergraduate statistics.

I infuse my sense of humor and positivity 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!

Fantastic start!

I had a great phone meeting with Kenneth and we are excited to have him work with our son on college essays. Kenneth brings terrific wealth knowledge to this daunting task.

KIM, 6 lessons with Kenneth

great tutor

Kenneth helped me with my graduate essay. He was amazingly helpful and knowledgeable in this area. He also helped to focus my train of thought and weed through the multitude of text in which I provided him.

Jamie, 1 lesson with Kenneth

Most effective and helpful tutor

I am so happy that I found Ken on Wyzant!! He is humorous, knowledgeable and patient. The most impressive thing is that during one hour tutoring session he opens up my thinking and made everything so clear to follow and understand. I just wish that we found him earlier!!

Connie, 5 lessons with Kenneth

Very knowledgeable!!!

Very knowledgeable teacher! My daughter wasn’t quite confident about an upcoming SAT Math test. Kevin is really helping my daughter to increase her score a lot! Definitely recommend him for any age, any levels!

Inna, 17 lessons with Kenneth

Very responsible

Very responsible for editing college essays! Made some constructive suggestions for future essays as well by analyzing strengths and weaknesses. I will have him again to edit future essays.

Haowei, 6 lessons with Kenneth

Great and knowledgeable tutor

Our daughter is completely overwhelmed by the PSAT/SAT and he is making this process so much easier for her to understand. He is able to break the information down so that she can focus on pieces rather than looking at the SAT study manual and find it overwhelming! Thank you!

Marcia, 3 lessons with Kenneth

Excellent!

Kenneth was efficient with his time, zeroed in on what my son needed and guided him to an excellent paper. I wish we would have found him sooner in his HS career.
