I thoroughly enjoy tutoring because I am able to see the progress my students are making each time we meet and celebrate their successes.

Hi! I have been working with students in the area of math for over 20 years in both classrooms and one-on-one instruction. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring because I am able to see the progress my students are making each time we meet and celebrate their successes. My background includes teaching high school and middle school math in the Florida and Missouri Public School Systems for over 14 years. I am certified in grades 6-12 and have experience teaching the following courses in middle and high schools: Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry.

Another passion of mine is volunteering my time in various after school programs. I have volunteered in the Lee County Take Stock in Children Program by mentoring high school students that are applying for a free scholarship program. I have also participated as a tutor for middle/high school students in New Horizon’s After School Program in Bonita Springs, and have been involved in the Big Brother Program for years.

My experience prior to teaching is in the Information Systems area where I worked for a major corporation for over 25 years. This experience in the business world allows me to use real world applications for the math that I teach and enables me to make math more interesting to students.

I pride myself in my ability to keep students engaged in math, and in getting students to really feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. My past students will vouch for me on this! I have very flexible hours on weekends and after school. I look forward to hearing from you and working with your student to enjoy math again.

Knowledgeable tutor

He helped my child with his math homework and the next day when he took his test he got an A. I am very thankful for his help. I would also highly recommend him as your next tutor.

Janet, 1 lesson with Kent

good fit

My daughter immediately felt comfortable and in particular found Mr. Kents way of teaching very helpful to her. We hope this continues to be a good match for her and she looks forward to her next lesson

Lexi, 5 lessons with Kent

Knowledgeable and great personality

Our 14 year old daughter felt immediately comfortable with Kent. Her time was limited and Kent and she were able to get through a lot of algebra two content in record time. She looks forward to working with him next week.

Kathryn, 7 lessons with Kent

Kent is an awesome tutor. he was able to reach and teach my child at her level.

Ken has helped my child with algebra. He has made what seemed to her as an insurmountable task, into something that she can conquer. After a few sessions her understanding and confidence improved dramatically.

Eleazar, 6 lessons with Kent

Upbeat and Patient

We are so grateful to have stumbled upon Kent. My daughter was on medical leave from school this spring so her school is making her take a fast paced, fully year course (in 1.5 months) or they’ll make her repeat her year. Math is not enjoyable to her. Kent was friendly, patient and gentle in his corrections. We originally booked him for 1 session but will continue to use him for as long as we can. We feel super lucky to have found him on such short notice.

Marla, 7 lessons with Kent

Two thumbs up!

Took a complicated concept, and turned it in to a simple concept for my 10th grader. My son highly recommends Ken. Can't ask for more then that..... The rest of this comment is to meet the 160 character count for a review.... really Wyants... your as bad as some essay questions...

Tim, 4 lessons with Kent

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Algebra-2 concepts become more clearer after his classes. Kent helped in improving the grades for 9th grade. He would go prepare topic in advance and his teaching methods are very easy to understand

Manoj, 33 lessons with Kent

Excellent

Excellent knowledge and willing to explain things in a new perspective. When a question is asked he fully explains the answer and how to solve the problem. Excellent experience.

Angela, 13 lessons with Kent

Great Tutor

The teaching immediately translates to an improvement in grades and test scores. Engaging and patient tutor who does not just tell you what to do but ensures you know how to do it for yourself.
