Bio

I have taught English in a variety of school settings from urban to rural and have designed workshops for students regarding poetics and literature. Aside from English, I am a certified second degree black belt with fifteen years of experience in Hapkido. Through this lifestyle, I have been an instructor long before I knew I wanted to be an English educator.

I have taught English in a variety of school settings from urban to rural and have designed workshops for students regarding poetics and literature. Aside from English, I am a certified second degree black belt with fifteen years of experience in Hapkido. Through this lifestyle, I have been an instructor long before I knew I wanted to be an English educator. With the discipline of my practice in English education and martial arts, I have found that my philosophy with teaching is that all students are capable of achieving their goals whether that is in the classroom or outside of it. I have worked with students of many different backgrounds and I love that tutoring offers me the ability to meet more of these diverse students. All learners deserve to move forward in their education and I want to provide that for as many as I can. With these goals in mind, I was honored as a Golden Apple scholar and now have a significant amount of experience in diversity and educational philosophy. This organization focuses on giving future teachers time in classrooms during an internship for four weeks in the summer. Golden Apple scholars learn about educational philosophy and teaching methods in workshops designed by licensed educators of all subject areas.

My strengths within English are grammar, reading comprehension, literature, poetry (performance and written), creative writing, proofreading, and editing as the focus of my undergraduate studies. Above all, my passion for the English language has driven me to be the educator and scholar that I am today. I have taught a series of lessons involving writing exercises and reading comprehension that invites learners to want to achieve more.

I love teaching people the beauty of the English language and look forward to providing that experience with any and all students. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or reach out. I look forward to our sessions!

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

While speech is a necessity to be a licensed teacher, it is not the only place I learned to publicly speak. I have a background in theatre, including improvisation, formal productions, and debate. With my degree in English education, public speaking is seen not only as part of the curriculum, but also a voice for those who have something to say.

Literature

I have done work with editing essays based around argumentation or literature analysis prior as it is a main portion of my major field of study. Close reading is a specialty of mine as symbolism and thematic ideas are always present in literature. I have created lessons surrounding literature analysis and deeper thinking.

Kenny is very passionate and professional tutor for my junior high son.

I tried several tutors for my son previously. This time, I am so glad to find him. Kenny is really great and professional tutor. I am so impressed he left feed-back for my son all the times after class. I do recommend Kenny for everyone.

Heedong, 8 lessons with Kenny

Excellent tutor. Very patient and engaging

My son has been doing writing lessons with Kenny and so far he is really enjoying it and making great progress. Kenny was able to get him engaged in writing in a fun way and work with him to grow his writing skills

Moshe, 9 lessons with Kenny

Knowledgeable, Patient ACT/English Math Tutor

Kenny has helped my daughter prepare for the ACT test in a short period of time. After the first session, Kenny had my daughter cracking open that practice book that I could not get her to even look at and doing practice at home! He reviewed important test-taking skills with her in both English and Math, writing down important formulas and teaching her testing tricks. We will still continue to use Kenny for more lessons, including support with college essays, as I feel that he uses their tutoring time well and truly wants to see his students grow! I highly recommend Kenny as a tutor!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kenny was a highly professional and thorough English tutor. I was able to get A's on my finals with his help. I will definitely be seeing Kenny any time I have a paper or English assignment that I need help with.
