About Kenneth

I am a retired attorney with a BA and MA in political science. I have taught business law in a college legal assistant program and American government at a college. In addition, I have written educational materials in American history, the Constitution and business law.

I also read widely in history and politics, so I have a perspective to add to any tutoring assignment. Being retired from a regular job, I am looking to help my community by providing assistance to those in need of educational support.

I was employed as a legal editor and then a corporate attorney for 40 years. I have taught in a paralegal program as well as lecturing at numerous programs both within my company and to professional groups. I wish to tutor in law for undergraduate or graduate programs in subjects such as Constitutional law or business law. I do not tutor students in law school.

I received the highest score on the AP American History regents have written texts on American history for middle and high school students and read history independently. And I have a BA and MA in political science, which along with my law degree, give me a solid foundation in political matters, the Constitution, etc.

My academic and writing credentials, as well has many years of legal and teaching experience, combine to provide a unique blend knowledge and insight which will translate well to a tutoring position.

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.

Political Science

I have a BA and MA in political science. In addition, my law degree provides insights into matters that involve the Constitution.

Social Studies

Social studies encompasses a variety of subjects, such as government, history, geography, and cultures. I have written an American History textbook that includes lessons in learning skills such as the use of maps. I have a BA and MA in political science with extensive courses in history and have continued to read extensively in all related subject areas. My career also includes book reviews for The New York Times and other publications. The subjects include social issues such as urban development, civil liberties, and society in general. I have also served as a researcher for Dr. Jack Abramowitz who was a noted author of textbooks in the social studies field.

Thorough Understanding of Information

I was very impressed by the breadth of knowledge of Kenneth as far as legal terminology and his ability to explain how to write better legal essays.
