About Kevin


Bio

Tutoring English is the perfect job for me. The first time I tutored anyone, I was in the 4th grade and my student was a few buildings away in the 2nd. We were learning to read and write, together. Since then, I have tutored people in writing at high school, in college, and later as the program coordinator for the Mental Health Corporation of Denver. At that time, from November 1994 to October 1998, I taught others how to tutor as well as worked with students myself. Recruited tutors,...

Tutoring English is the perfect job for me. The first time I tutored anyone, I was in the 4th grade and my student was a few buildings away in the 2nd. We were learning to read and write, together. Since then, I have tutored people in writing at high school, in college, and later as the program coordinator for the Mental Health Corporation of Denver. At that time, from November 1994 to October 1998, I taught others how to tutor as well as worked with students myself. Recruited tutors, developed groups, designed learning materials. Still later on in life, at different times from August 2002 to June 2009, I worked as a writing tutor at Metroplitan State College of Denver. Taught with my own grammar system, instructed in the proper use of citation, and always encouraged freedom of speech; all in twenty minute appointments. So, since that first tutoring assignment, I have helped over a thousand students to express themselves more clearly, directly, and freely, and will probably help a thousand more. Currently, I am an English teacher at Westwood College, near I-25 and Highway 36 in Denver. In the last eight years there, I have taught remedial English, Beginning College Writing, Advanced College Writing, Persuasive Research, Science Fiction, Contemporary Literature, Comparative Literature, and Creative writing. I sat on curriculum committees, developed learning activities, led workshops, and taught other teachers how to teach. In 2011, I was the October Faculty of the Term and Tutor Coordinator. My learning strategy is ever unconventional, and my goal is for students to write something original and memorable. I help people do as much as they can, as well as they can, for as long as they can. My critics suggest what I do is too showy, looks too easy, and is messy. My fans say I can show you how to read and write a dozen different ways, depending on your learning style, and your motivation. For some folks, I'm not the right teacher. For most others, I'm the guy you hire to help you say what you always wanted to say, and now it's time you did. Says, KF
