I'm deeply invested in teaching and learning. I have a degree in philosophy and I am preparing for graduate studies in the field, but I have had a very eclectic education.

I'm deeply invested in teaching and learning. I have a degree in philosophy and I am preparing for graduate studies in the field, but I have had a very eclectic education. I was an advanced math student in high school, a neuroscience major for the first half of my college career, and have also dabbled in things like history, creative writing, and urban forestry along the way. My education has always been interdisciplinary and self-directed, which I always encourage in my friends and my students. I have been tutoring friends and clients for years, and now I’m doing it for a living.

I was a voracious learner from a young age, so I am always ready to help a student maintain an accelerated learning pace, whether it's to be competitive for school or just out of a burning curiosity. I also work with students with learning disabilities and I love that too. Often, a little extra help is all it takes to go from “behind” to “ahead”. I understand that there can be a lot of pressure and anxiety, but I know how to help students lay good knowledge foundations so that anxiety can recede and confidence can build. In fact, I went into philosophy because I have a keen sense of which questions I need to ask to push my knowledge on a subject. It is a critical skill for any learner, and I always try my best to help students ask the best questions of themselves and their teachers.

While in college, I was employed as a liaison between students and professors, so I am familiar with a lot of the problems that students can have with class structure and material. I think tutoring can be critical for clearing up those problems and bridging that gap. I help tutor and edit for all sorts of things, including high school English, college philosophy, freelance journalism, graduate dissertations, and corporate newsletters.

My schedule is flexible, and I am happy to work across multiple subjects if a student has a lot of questions or assignments! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Kenton is fantastic!

Kenton and I covered the history of science with a focus on philosophy of science. He is quite knowledgeable and patient. I am looking forward to more lessons with Kenton!

Great teacher

Kenton helped me about philosophy. We analyzed Augustine’s Confessions and Alexander Pope’s Essay on Man. We compared the works and discussed it’s deeper meaning. Kenton was really helpful!

Engaging and patient!

Kenton was great with my teenage son who doesn’t like asking for help. He engaged in a wonderful conversation that helped my son understand what he was reading and be able to comprehend the assignments.

patient and informative tutor

I was helped with understanding new concepts that we covered in my philosophy class and also helped with organizing my paper for the class! It was a great session :)

A Tutor who really cares

Kenton helped me review an assignment I had analyzing moral arguments. This was my first session with him, and my first session through Wyznat. I had not a clue what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. He responded so quickly, and he was flexible with my schedule. When we met, he was incredibly patient. You know when you get that teacher who seems to really care? Yeah, that was him. He seemed to genuinely care about whether or not I understood, and if I didn’t, he found news ways to explain. I did great on my assignment too. I will definitely be utilizing his help in the future. Worth every penny!

Wonderful Tutor!

Kenton helped with editing my essay for a post bac program. The message I wanted to get across became much more concise and clear with his insight. I struggle with writing, but he remained calm, caring, and supportive. When I got stuck, he asked probing brainstorming questions. He is flexible and will work with your schedule. Very knowledgeable. 5/5 stars - I highly recommend Kenton!

OUTSTANDING TUTOR!

Kenton has been instrumental in my success this semester with the most difficult course I've ever taken! He's by far my FAVORITE tutor on Wyzant as he consistently goes above and beyond with helping me better understand ethics. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! 10 out of 10!
