I'm a graduate of Bates College (B.A.), the University of Illinois (M.S.), and M.I.T. (M.S.), with degrees in economics and management.

I've been a tutor since 2001, when I started preparing students to take the SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT exams. To me, standardized exams are like puzzles: they can be fun and challenging. With a little instruction and practice, you can achieve significant improvement in scores -- and maybe even enjoy them.

I also tutor other subjects that I enjoy, and tr...

Ken did a great job working with my son on geometry in preparation for the SAT. He?s very patient and extremely knowledgeable. My son really enjoyed working with him. Thanks Ken!!

Ken has been helping me with the GRE test. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding math concepts and is able to word things for you to understand clearly. He takes his time to make sure you understand the solution and what you are doing. I have always struggled with math and have been dreading taking the GRE, so I knew I needed a well informed tutor and Ken is perfect for that. I have made great improvement in how I approach and understand the problems because of his guidance. Besides working on the given problems, Ken also suggested other worksheets and helpful resources for me to study on my own. I can't not express enough how much he has helped me and how much more confident I am to take the test. Ken is a wonderful tutor.... I only wish I had someone like him teaching me math back in high school and college.

Ken has been a great tutor so far! He?s helping me with the GRE and so far has shown me test taking strategies that help me focus on not only what the question is asking, but also how to approach them in the most efficient way. I would recommend!

Ken is a very inspiring tutor, my 10th grader really really engaged with Ken and found the lesson really helpful. I could not recommend Ken more highly. Thank you Ken!
- Li W. from Chapel Hill, NC
Ken was an excellent tutor! He took the time to ask me about my academic background and familiarity with certain topics so he could suggest the most efficient ways for me to study. He always took the time to explain solutions and his thought processes and always made sure I understood the topic before moving on.
- Phong D. from Carrboro, NC
My son worked with Ken on SAT prep and enjoyed the session very much. Ken made the most of this first session by having my son do prep work which helped us really identify the particular benefits and improvements my son is likely to make on retest. Really excited about having him work with Ken.

Ken responded quickly to our urgent call for a tutor to help my daughter prepare for an AP Statistics test. Ken was available the same day to meet for a 2-hour session, and my daughter found him very helpful and able to explain many of the concepts that had been unclear to her.
- Holly C. from Chapel Hill, NC
Ken did a great job of preparing my son for the ACT and SAT. He communicated extremely well with both of us after each tutoring session, letting us know what they accomplished in the tutoring session and what my son needed to work on. I strongly recommend him!

Ken worked with me for the 6 week period leading up to my GRE. My test is tomorrow, and I definitely feel more prepared than I would have without Ken's help. He was accommodating to my schedule and flexible in his explanations. I've had tutors won't explain things in a different way if I don't understand it the first time, but Ken did. I have difficulty with math, so that's where we spent most of our time in our sessions. If you're looking to take the GRE and you struggle with math, Ken's your guy.

10/18/17 my son needed help with AP Statistics. Test was this week! Ken was flexible and was able to respond to this last minute request. Very helpful we will most certainly schedule him again!

Ken helped my somewhat reluctant children become more enthusiastic about studying for their SAT. He provided pre-work and was very organized. He has a good methodology for specifically helping my children prepare for their upcoming test.
- Andrew W. from Cary, NC
Ken keeps the student active and in charge of their own learning. His style encourages the student to study hard on their own without adding stressful expectations.
- Mary A. from Cary, NC
Ken is a wonderful tutor who does an excellent job at finding the best method of teaching for each student. Every tutoring session I felt myself getting more confident in my math test taking skills. I definitely recommend Ken if you are in need of a math tutor!
- Bennett C. from Durham, NC
Being a student who had quite high scores already on the SAT and wanted to bring them up just that bit higher, I've had tutors before that weren't able to help me improve and simply had me sit there and do practice tests without offering much help or greater insight into the test. Ken was not one of these tutors. He was very good at figuring out what I needed to improve upon and remember during the test, and it never felt like I was wasting my time with him. I just took the SAT again this week and multiple times during the test, I found myself facing problems I was sure I wouldn't have been able to do had it not been for his tutoring. Well worth the time and the money, for certain. Overall excellent!!
- Martha C. from Durham, NC
Ken was extremely helpful in helping me to prepare for the GMAT. He did an excellent job helping me to simplify concepts. He also gave me very useful strategies to help solve certain types of problems. I definitely recommend working with Ken.

Ken has great knowledge of the subject of Managerial Economics. His patience and skill at teaching has helped me understand the subject matter in a much more comprehensive way.
