About Ken


Bio

I strive to take the anxiety out of modern-day schooling for my students. I enjoy what I do, and I look forward to the big challenges.

The majority of my work is one-on-one test prep (ACT/SAT, GRE, PSAT, SSAT, PLAN, Aspire, AP, school-specific entrance tests) as well as subject help, primarily in math, grammar and writing, as well as all subjects up to eighth grade and many in high school (math, English, science and others).

I have a Masters in Education, specializing in Instructional...

I strive to take the anxiety out of modern-day schooling for my students. I enjoy what I do, and I look forward to the big challenges.

The majority of my work is one-on-one test prep (ACT/SAT, GRE, PSAT, SSAT, PLAN, Aspire, AP, school-specific entrance tests) as well as subject help, primarily in math, grammar and writing, as well as all subjects up to eighth grade and many in high school (math, English, science and others).

I have a Masters in Education, specializing in Instructional Design, from the University of Illinois, as well as a BS and BA (and a minor degree in Classics). For ten years I was a certified classroom teacher in Illinois and Florida, mostly at the middle and high school levels, in public and private schools, at some points teaching pre-K through university.

Although my instruction is rigorous and intense, the time usually flies by and my kids usually have a pretty good time.

I've been coaching and tutoring full-time, primarily test preparation and subject coaching, as well as helping students write college application essays. I have much experience with learning disabled, gifted, and LD-gifted students, working particularly on Executive Function and general study skills.

My state teaching certifications include high school Math, English, History, Computer, ESL, elementary science, and a couple others.

Thank you,
Ken

What makes me an outstanding Math tutor? Individualized focus on the students with a laid back personable style which facilitates our intense work together. And I love math! Experience teaching over two thousand students (literally).

What makes me an outstanding ACT Science tutor? Individualized focus on the students with a laid back personable style which facilitates our intense work together. This test really is something that can be learned. It's a 'game' with rules; you get better at the game the more (intensely) you practice.

What makes me an outstanding English tutor? I love reading and writing! Also: my individualized focus on the students with a laid back personable style which facilitates our intense work together.

Experience: Teaching thousands of students in my lifetime, pre-Kindergarten through university, and older adults.

Excellent Tutor!!!

Ken is an exceptional teacher. As an older student returning to college, I’ve come to the realization that I have forgotten many basic math concepts. Ken is able to review these concepts with me and show me how they relate to real life situations as well as within my course work. Ken’s teaching approach is very relaxed and time well spent. He helps to instill valuable stress coping techniques, such as self awareness, the power of positive thinking and the importance of breathing. Seriously, I’ve never had such a great experience with a tutor before. I highly recommend Ken!

Very knowledgeable teacher

He helped me with a study method that got me ready and prepared for the SATs. Overall great teacher. Ken proceeded to help me in every subject especially math, he showed me different ways to attack these hard SAT questions.

Patient and makes good use of time

Ken is helping my daughter understand the areas in mathematics that she needs to focus on in order to improve her understanding on the SAT. Patient and my daughter learned several new things from the first session.
