Nice to meet you. I am Ken L. I have been in education for 26 years serving roles as teacher, coach, and administrator. I have a B. A. in Government and Politics; M.A in Political Science; and a M. ED. Education.

I have been tutoring for the past 10 years and really enjoy the ability to work with students in an academic setting that is more "focused" than the regular classroom. I apply principles of coaching and mastery teaching to all my lessons - we do not move on until you have mastered...

Nice to meet you. I am Ken L. I have been in education for 26 years serving roles as teacher, coach, and administrator. I have a B. A. in Government and Politics; M.A in Political Science; and a M. ED. Education.

I have been tutoring for the past 10 years and really enjoy the ability to work with students in an academic setting that is more "focused" than the regular classroom. I apply principles of coaching and mastery teaching to all my lessons - we do not move on until you have mastered the concept.

I hold certifications in:
Composite Social Studies (Tx) - 6 -1 2;
Advanced Placement - United States History
Advanced Placement - United States Government and Politics

My US History students scored an average of 4.20 of the APUSH exam in 2020 (national average was 2.83). Out of my students who took the APUSH Exam in 2020 - 86% scored a 3 or higher (national average was 57%)
For the AP Government exam administered in 2020 students averaged a 4.25 (national average was 2.84). For 2020, 94% of students scored a 3 or higher on the AP Government exam (national average was 57.5%)

I "specialize" in preparing students for the STAAR EOC Exam in US History (Texas); New York State Regents Exam; AP US Government and Politics as well as the AP U.S. History Exams. I am up to date on the most recent changes in both the AP U. S. History exam and the AP Government exam. I also tutor students who do not fall under the AP or the STAAR testing umbrella. I work with students throughout the year as supplemental instruction as well as test preparation.

I am not limited to the traditional school schedule. I tutor 12 months a year, even during some holidays. I work 7 days a week and mainly in the evenings to accommodate the student's schedule.

I look forward to hearing from you on how I can help you achieve success.

Very knowledgeable in subject matter

Ken is working with my son on AP Government. This has been a very challenging class and Ken has a way of presenting the subject in clear and simple terms. He is very patient, personable and has already made a good connection. My son's first test since working with Ken is the highest grade he has received this year. I look forward to Ken working with my son on a long term basis.

Kim, 9 lessons with Ken

Knowledgeable, patient and dedicated tutor

As a freshman learning AP Government, I had lots of struggles not only in the testing category such as FRQ’s and MCQ’s, but also understanding the concept. Unlike other tutors I had before, Mr. L was patient and dedicated to finding ways to help me understand the subject and properly answer the test questions. I honestly am glad and fortunate to have Mr. L as my tutor.
