About Kenneth

Hi, my name is Kenneth. I am currently an English Ph.D. candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but I will be back in my hometown of New Orleans for the summer. I study contemporary literature and film, and so I'm especially well-qualified to teach literature and to get students ready for the reading portions of the SAT and ACT.

I grew up in New Orleans and attended Jesuit High School, where I won the Frank T. Howard Memorial Award for English in my senior year. While I was still at Jesuit, I started tutoring students in Latin and, to a lesser degree, Spanish. I haven't tutored in a while - I've been busy with college at Tulane, then getting my master's degree at the University of Virginia, then working on my Ph.D. at UNC. This summer, however, I'll finally have time to get back into tutoring, and am happy to take on new students in any of the subjects I'm advertising.

I did very well in all five years of Latin at Jesuit High School, where you can get one of the best Latin educations available anywhere. I also minored in Latin at Tulane University. In my senior year at Jesuit, I helped a Latin I student raise his grade from a D to a B over the course of a semester.

I'm getting my Ph.D. in English at one of the best graduate programs in the country. I have been studying literature intensely for many years and am very well qualified to help people through high-school English work. I also teach the freshman writing class at UNC, so I know what writing skills universities are looking for in potential undergraduate students.

I'm a very friendly New Orleans native with one of the most advanced English educations you're likely to find on this site. I really love teaching and am excited to get back into tutoring. I'm happy to meet students anywhere, especially in Metairie or Lakeview.
