About Ken

I am a 7th grade science teacher in PGCPS and am working on my Master's of Education Degree with a program called Teach-Now. I am a University of Maryland graduate (Go Terps!) with a degree in Environmental Science and Policy.

I have various teaching and tutoring experiences over the years. I was a TA in college for a year, and volunteered after school 1-2 times a week for two tutoring programs for children in nearby schools. I was also a mentor with LearnServe International for two years when I was working in consulting, and currently mentor with the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy in D.C.

My reason for getting (back) into tutoring is to help others learn and become better students! I enjoy working one-on-one with students and seeing them grow and develop. I adjust my tutoring to try to meet students where they are at with their work and skills. Each student has different needs, personalities, and learning styles so I try to figure out how to work with those unique factors. I also like to get to know students on a personal level and connect with them in any way I can. I am willing to go the extra mile to help others succeed and reach their goals!

On a bit more personal level, I am very easy-going and try to enjoy life and make the most of it. I love to volunteer and am a huge sports fan, which is something that I follow and participate in during my spare time.
