About Kenneth

I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you as you continue to improve your skills in the areas of math and science. These are very important subjects to master, and I am confident in my abilities to assist you in this activity. I teach for understanding, wanting my students to enjoy the lessons and come away with both renewed confidence as well as the necessary skills to be successful in their future schooling.

I am a retired administrator and teacher from the northeast, looking for opportunities to share my expertise with young adults in all areas of math and the physical and earth sciences. I have taught both math and science in the middle and high school grades, specializing in algebra 1 and 2, physics, and Earth science. I am a very patient person who loves to teach and interact with the youth of today and would welcome the chance to help you improve your understanding of these challenging subjects.

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.

Algebra 2

I have taught high school math from algebra to trig and calculus. I especially enjoy working in the algebra 1 and 2 content areas.

Clarinet

I have been playing clarinet for over 50 years, starting in 7th grade. I played in my high school band, several groups in college and have played in my own dance bands, community bands and concert bands for the last 35 years. I have had several students; starting in 3rd grade up to adults and was band director at the high school I taught at for five years. I am best suited for beginning and intermediate students as well as those looking to improve their ability to play jazz.

Saxophone

I have been playing tenor saxophone for over 45 years, starting in high school. I played in my high school band, several groups in college and have played in my own dance bands, community bands and concert bands for the last 35 years. I have had several students; starting in 3rd grade up to adults and was band director at the high school I taught at for five years. I am best suited for beginning and intermediate students as well as those looking to improve their ability to play jazz. I also play soprano saxophone.

Kenneth went over graphing and plotting with my son. This is the area he was having most difficulty. After the session, my son did more practice problems with ease. He has his confidence back.
