About Kendrick

I would like to introduce myself a little bit. My name is Kendrick Wilk, and I am an English /ESL educator living in San Diego, California.

I was born and raised on the east coast of the U.S., and I attended school at UMass Lowell. My degree is in English Writing and Fine Arts. The liberal arts are a natural leaning for me, and so passion runs continuous in my life. I have been working full-time as an ESL teacher in a private school classroom setting for four years. I have also five years combined experience as a behavioral interventionist and public school educator.

I am a proud husband and father, and In my personal time I pursue music and design as concurrent outlets. I see my own studies in guitar, piano, voice, and percussion as maintaining a connection to the learning process. In my approach to one-on-one tutoring, I seek to unlock the joy of learning and development. I have had great success helping over 200 learners achieve their goals. I look forward to helping any future clients learn to use English effectively and with confidence!

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.

Drawing

I have a minor in fine art/ illustration from UMass Lowell. I have been practicing design for over ten years, with emphasis on form and space. I appreciate helping learners develop the ability to approach any subject with confidence. I was taught to "search" for relationships as a method of defining still-life, figure models, landscape or whatever the case of study. This skill of vision combined with material and tools selection and use yields satisfying results showing a true sense of integration.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for 20 years.
I am self taught, but have had exceptional experience from opportunities undertaken. I have played in a rock band with a hall of fame inductee, funk outfits with noted players and have produced solo compositions for over a decade. The guitar is both a lead and rhythm instrument and its potential should be demonstrated to give a novice player this scope. Then, a strong connection through modeling and encouragement, followed by written theory is my preferred method. I will develop a guitar/theory notebook with all students.
