About Kenneth


Bio

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.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

As a high school student interested in math and science, I took Algebra I-IV, and trigonometry, and then took them again in college. I have also taken several courses in calculus as a graduate student while earning a Ph.D. in biophysical sciences. These courses and my teaching experience suggest that I have the knowledge as well as the teaching skills necessary to teach Algebra 1.

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.
