Experienced Social Studies teacher--AP & Regents
I'm an experienced, retired New York City public high school teacher. I've taught AP United States and European History, and have been a table reader for both exams--I've actually graded the essays for the College Board. This experience gives me a broader insight into the tests and how to prepare for them than many other teachers. I have also taught regular Regents level courses in United States History and Government and Global History and Geography. My test results have been excellent! ...

Right now, because the Covid crisis will require some online or distance learning, having a tutor to help students with online assignments and keeping them on task can be very helpful as parents either return to work or have to focus on working from home. Besides the academic advantages, there is also the reduction in stress at home that one might want to consider.
I have also taught numerous electives, such as Participation in Government, Financial Literacy, and several law courses (I'm a member of the New York State Bar, but I no longer practice law). I emphasize study skills, literacy, essay writing, and content mastery as keys to academic success. I believe that there are several keys to academic success: a student's desire to succeed, a firm foundation in study skills, literacy, and support from parents and teachers. Content knowledge mastery will result from all of these.
**Please also note that due to travel and time restrictions, I cannot accept appointments in Nassau County, Queens, Brooklyn, nor in New Jersey nor Rockland County. Also, I do not tutor Economics nor AP World History.**

Great tutor for AP US History
Kenneth goes the extra mile in teaching and has been very helpful with preparing my daughter for the DBQ AP US History questions. He is patient, kind, and attentive. I highly recommend him for history lessons. Great teacher!Irina, 11 lessons with Kenneth
First lesson has gone extremely well. Happy to post updates as things progress.
Quite complicated issues to solve in terms of study organization and application for what was an A grade student now taking AP EuroHist. I have confidence that Ken's intervention will make a huge impact on how happily the student progresses.Huw, 24 lessons with Kenneth
Knowledgeable and patient
Ken is a really good teacher. He is very patient and responsible. He is knowledgeable and always prepared. My son is making progresses and getting confidence on US history with Ken's help.Maggie, 22 lessons with Kenneth
Very nice and knowledgeable
Kenneth is not only a very nice guy and knowledgeable in social studies, he knows how to break it down into manageable bites that get through. It's one thing to know something and another to convey in a manner that's understood before Attention drops, and Kenneth accomplishes that with flying colors!!!! I'm very happy with the work being done and feel lucky to have Kenneth as our sons tutor.Chris, 12 lessons with Kenneth
Great tutoring by Mr. Kenneth H
Thanks for tutoring my son on AP US Government and politics. He is extremely happy to learn a lot from you. Really really appreciate your help and guidance.Ganesan, 1 lesson with Kenneth
Ken is most definitely knowledgeable in Global History. During the last session, he was able to deliver the information in a clear and concise way. My daughter was not grasping the context she was reading in the review books. Having someone knowledgeable go over it in a more clear and concise way with little tips and tidbits of ways to remember key things was very helpful. I can definitely see my daughter obtaining a better sense of knowledge on Global History as Ken makes his way through the different topics.Helena, 9 lessons with Kenneth
Mr. Kenneth was a very knowledgeable teacher, and helped me to feel confident on the AP US History Test! He was always there when I had a question, and was always there when I needed his help. Would definitely recommend for APUSH.Jack, 51 lessons with Kenneth
Ken has been wonderful working with my son. He is very patient and always goes the extra mile to be sure my son knows the material. My son's FRQS grades dramatically increased after only a couple of sessions with Ken. We are very happy to have found him.Kerrianne, 6 lessons with Kenneth
