About Kenneth

I am an experienced K-12 Special Education teacher and also an Adult Education Tutor. I have taught all subject-matter to prepare students for regular classroom lessons and for test preparation. I use a variety of teaching methods to address my student's individual leaning styles and preferences.

I know what it is like to struggle to learn subjects that are not one's natural ability. It is not enough to try harder; more often, we must try "different." Everyone can learn if given the right strategies.

Many of my methods of teaching math involve practical examples and applications to real life problems. Concrete examples are better than abstract theory when one is beginning to learn a concept.

I have taught professional speaking techniques and certified hundreds of corporate executives through public workshops all across the USA and Canada. I focus on verbal and non-verbal communication skill building, and utilize video feedback to help you develop your individual and unique presentation style.

Contact me for a free, no obligation assessment and we can determine what next steps are appropriate for you.

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.
