About Kenneth

My first job was teaching 9th grade physical science. While earning a Ph.D. in biophysics, I taught math to 3rd-7th graders at a private music academy.

During my 38 year career as a biochemical pharmacologist, I have taught nursing, graduate, medical, and postgraduate students from many backgrounds. I try to find how a student best learns, and the shape my presentation to fit the student's profile.

One of the best things about teaching is seeing the light go on when a student "gets it". We all come from different backgrounds, both cultural and genetic. There is no fool proof way to teach, as all students are different. Teachers have to smart enough and interested enough to experiment with different styles of presentation to find what best suits each student. This is not easy to do in a classroom setting, but is more easily accomplished in a one-on-one setting.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Pharmacology

I spent 2.5 yrs as a postdoctoral fellow in a medical school dept of Pharmacology & Toxicology, attended lectures and seminars in this area of investigation. I have published over 160 scientific papers, almost all of which were focused on pharmacological mechanisms of actions of drugs.
I currently teach pharmacology to graduate students in two courses: a) Principles of Drug Action, and b) Autonomic, Cardiovascular and CNS Pharmacology. I am the course director in both of these courses.
