About Kenneth

I have a BS and MS in Physics from Georgia Tech and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University. I worked for 30+ years as an applied mathematician for Westinghouse in Pittsburgh. During that time I also taught as an adjunct professor at CMU and at Duquesne University in the Mathematics Departments. I have tutored many high school and college students over the years and enjoy doing so, especially seeing "the light come on".

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.

Wonderful!

My twin daughters were struggling in high school Physics, and we needed to find someone to work with them. They also needed someone to kind of "teach" them Physics since their high school instructor was not the best at explaining concepts. Dr. Ken came through for my kids, and was able to explain things in a way that they could understand. He was calm and patient, and both girls enjoyed working
