I am an accomplished Mathematics Instructor at the secondary level with the extraordinary capacity to reach students of all ability levels. I am dedicated to ensuring each student has the opportunity to receive a quality Mathematical foundation. I have an extensive background of providing formal and informal leadership within my school environment. I am an effective communicator that is highly organized that have led professional learning meetings or team building activities in the past. I really shouldn't pat myself on the back, but I'm pretty darn good at what I do!

In regards to tutoring, I enjoy working with students on an individual basis because it is great to see students overcome a concept that may have been difficult for them to understand previously. I have been teaching Mathematics for a total of 17 years, 5 at the middle school level and 12 at the high school level. My true passion is teaching Statistics and Algebraic concepts, although I have taught many courses from middle school Math, Algebra 1, Euclidean Geometry, Elementary Statistics, Algebra 2, and SAT Prep over the years. I currently teach AP Statistics, PreCalculus, and SAT Prep at a high school in Clayton County.

I am truly an elite teacher because I am able to relate and break down mathematical concepts to almost any student that has the zeal to learn. It is my passion and philosophy to increase the mathematical ability of any student that is truly willing to put in the work. Mathematics, like many things in life, must be practiced properly to truly achieve competency. If you're willing to work, I'm certain that you can learn Mathematics.

I have been teaching AP Statistics for the past 5 years, which is equivalent to the Elementary Statistics College course. Prior to that, I have taught Elementary Statistics for 6 years. I truly love teaching Statistics at any level because it is a mathematical discipline that can be easily applied to real world situations.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebraic concepts come naturally to me because I truly understand the usefulness of Algebra 1. As a high school teacher with 16 years experience, I've assisted several of my former and current students with Algebraic concepts that are introduced in the Algebra 1 course. This course is an important indicator to future academic success in higher level Mathematics courses, so quality tutoring is a must!
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a gateway math because it is the foundation to higher order mathematical skills.
Prealgebra,

I have been teaching some form of Algebra my entire 16-year teaching career whether in middle school Math, such as PreAlgebra, or to the high school students that I currently serve. PreAlgebra is an important foundational piece to a student's future success in upper level high school Mathematics courses, as these academic skills will facilitate a students ability to learn more complex concepts in the future. Choosing a high quality tutor, such as myself, is of upmost importance!
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have been teaching PreCalculus concepts to 12th grade students or advanced 11th grade students for nine years now. I like PreCalculus because it encompasses many disciplines such as Algebra, Trigonometry, and even some Statistics. I like teaching PreCalculus because it is truly a college bound course that reaches back to utilize foundational knowledge from lower level mathematical courses in simple, intermediate, and sometimes complex ways.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

As a 12th grade Mathematics teacher with 16 years of experience, I have often tutored students about mathematical concepts that they had difficulty with on the SAT. I currently teach the SAT Prep course at my high school, which has provided me additional insight into methodologies that are necessary to excel on the New SAT format.

Extremely helpful

Dr Kenneth was able to help me better comprehend a last minute assignment & was extremely patient & explained everything very well.

Kelsey, 1 lesson with Dr. Kenneth

Very knowledgeable

He did a wonderful job. Very helpful in understanding the concepts I am covering in my AP statistics class. Definitely will continue working with Dr. Kenneth in the future.

Sam, 1 lesson with Dr. Kenneth

Excellent Tutor

My son's knowledge increases with every lesson. Dr. Kenneth P. is patient and very thorough. My son’s grades have improved significantly.

Steve, 21 lessons with Dr. Kenneth

Smart Guy

It's clear from the start that Dr. P. knows his stuff. That said, he explains it in a down to earth relatable manner. I've been struggling in my stats class with a professor that's less than helpful. Working with Dr. P. has helped fill in the missing gaps.

Jennifer , 2 lessons with Dr. Kenneth

Very knowledgeable and patient!

Dr. Kenneth made it so easy to understand trigonometry concepts....after just the first lesson, he has given me my self- confidence back. Thank you so much Dr. Kenneth!

Theresa, 2 lessons with Dr. Kenneth

Very knowledgeable and engaging!

First lesson was excellent, got to know my daughter then asked her to set her goals. He was extremely well versed in AP statistics and gave clear examples during our session. Looking forward to additional sessions!

Jason, 3 lessons with Dr. Kenneth

Patient tutor, very knowledgable and a great teacher.

I especially appreciate his willingness to take time to listen to my idea, frustrations and educational hopes. Who would have thought, he actually makes statistics sound fun! He clearly is knowledgable in his field, more importantly he enjoys it, which makes it at least tolerable for me, I am working on the fun part-I do believe he will get me there.

Laura, 6 lessons with Dr. Kenneth

Statistics

Dr Kenneth is very patient and knowledgeable at what he does. His bio is exactly what who he is and more. He has a lot of great example and method of teaching which brings a lot of value to the table. Enjoyed our two hours tutoring session, and learned a lot. Would highly recommend Dr Kenneth for your next tutor session.

Billy , 1 lesson with Dr. Kenneth

First Session

Kenneth was very helpful for what I presented him with. He was knowledgable of the subject and patient with me. I like that fact that we could me in person and it was near my home.
