Nice to meet you. I am Ken L. I have been in education for 29 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 29 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 content.

I hold certifications in:
Composite Social Studies - 6 -12;
Advanced Placement - United States History
Advanced Placement - United States Government and Politics
Advanced Placement - European History

My US History students scored an average of 4.5 of the APUSH exam in 2021 (national average was 2.83). Out of my students who took the APUSH Exam in 2021 - 100% scored a 3 or higher (national average was 47.2%)
For the AP Government exam administered in 2021 students averaged a 4.3 (national average was 2.62). For 2021, 100% of students scored a 3 or higher on the AP Government exam (national average was 50.2%)

I "specialize" in preparing students for the 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 work with students throughout the year as supplemental instruction as well as test preparation. I have recently attained the Wyzant top 10% tutor category!

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.

AP Goverment & Politics

My son is taking AP Gov & Politics class in his Sophomore . He needed some help before taking AP exam. My son was enjoying study with Ken and he asked me to study more with Ken tutor. My son's schedule was so busy because of his sports team but Ken tried hard to make time for him even during a holiday. I was so grateful. I appreciate your help, Ken!

Knowledgeable and responsive tutor

Ken is helping my daughter with AP Government and Politics. Ken is knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, and he's always quick to respond. He was also quite thorough in setting up a space where my daughter could access the materials that were covered during the session. This is helpful so that she can go back and review the information. We're looking forward to additional sessions with Ken, and we're glad we found him.

Reassuring, Helpful and Kind

That's how my son summarized how he felt learning from Ken. My son had two interesting lessons with Ken before his AP US History exam. Ken not only provided good information and valuable insight on the material that would be tested, but having knowledge of how the actual grading of the questions itself, gave my son greater confident going into the exam.

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.
