Bio

I have been teaching AP World History for 18 years, AP European History for 15 years and Regular, US Government for 3 years. My AP Exam pass rate for AP World History far exceeds the national pass rate of 50% for the past 16 years. My AP European History AP Exam pass rate is even higher than my AP World History scores which can most likely be explained because over 50% of the students already had me for AP World History their sophomore year.

As a result, well over half my students score 5's...

I have been teaching AP World History for 18 years, AP European History for 15 years and Regular, US Government for 3 years. My AP Exam pass rate for AP World History far exceeds the national pass rate of 50% for the past 16 years. My AP European History AP Exam pass rate is even higher than my AP World History scores which can most likely be explained because over 50% of the students already had me for AP World History their sophomore year.

As a result, well over half my students score 5's on the AP European History exam and at least 90 percent earn at least a 3. There have been several years where 100% of my AP European History students have passed that exam.

I have been told by my students that if I am not the hardest teacher in the school, I am definitely in the top 3, along with the AP Calculus, AP Statistics and AP Physics courses. Why does that matter? Because the skills, content and analysis preparation that happens in my classroom will assist the student, not only in my class and the AP exam that May, but students can also use what they have learned from me in their upper-level classes and into college.

My teaching and tutoring style incorporates: humor, visuals, movie clips, current events, Socratic Method, organizational techniques, and an overall love of the content that I am teaching. I have taught at an ACT/SAT prep school for a couple of years as well. I integrate what I taught students preparing for the ACT/SAT to what they need to prepare for in the AP History courses that I currently teach.

I believe that history repeats itself, just not in the same frequency nor intensity. When I review Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin' with my students the first day class, I set the tone of the importance of history in their teen-age lives...and beyond.

AP World History teacher for over 18 years.
AP European History teacher for over 15 years.
Government teacher for over 3 years.
I have also taught World Geography and Economics as well.

patient tutor

Ty is articulate, clear and easily understandable. Ty communicated on how to build the knowledge and areas of focus in the beginning. We look forward to long relationship with him

Engaging lessons

Goes deeper in depth than your AP Euro teacher would. Helps build connections by teaching and evaluating the processes as the course evolves. Will make you understand.

Better than could have imagined

Ty is really relatable. My son felt more confident and he enjoyed the session. My son looks forward to working with him on an ongoing basis. Ty seems to have a style that makes the student grasp the concept easily.

Outstanding Tutor

He taught my daughter how to write contextualization in a fun and engaging way. To make it relatable, he incorporated modern media which in turn made it easier to understand. She feels much more confident in AP World.

Teaches great strategies to students.

I just had my first tutoring lesson with Mr. K without any prior knowledge of test-taking strategies or how to go about attacking / answering a question. He very clearly showed me how to work smarter rather than harder in order to efficiently manage my time while still choosing the correct answers. He's very knowledgable on AP World and really emphasizes teaching the test rather than just dumping all of the content onto you. He offers great, nuanced explanations and does not waste any time when it comes to getting the review completed.

Very engaging and strategic lessons

As someone who struggles with Ap World History, I always focused on memorizing all of the content rather than the strategies. I appreciated how he taught me how to narrow down answers and work smarter with the problems. I also like how he doesn't just sit there and talk about loads of information, but instead engages you in the information being told. I highly recommend him!

Interesting and Knowledgeable Tutor

The tutor used key points to summarize how the questions look and how to answer them, and taught me how to effectively answer questions under the pressure of time.

Knowledgeable and interesting tutor

Ty. K's teaching was very interesting for me. I think his many years of experience really show through because I felt he was more of a teacher than a tutor. He taught me some very eye-opening strategies that could help me out when taking the AP exams and also help my grade in my AP Euro class when I'm taking tests. I like how he doesn't just lecture me the entire time, but asks me questions so that I can practice the things he teaches me.
