About this tutor

Math tutoring style is interactive. Questions by Mr. Marciel throughout each session guide student learning, using plain language to make concepts easier to grasp. Mini white boards, dry erase markers and erasers are used for teaching and demonstration, as well as student use. Tablet computer supplements the sessions as needed, with a library of electronic math textbooks and workbooks, scientific calculator, graphing utility, and other dedicated resources.

Improvements in test scores and course grades are great, but what is more important is to see improved learning and problem-solving skills.

    My granddaughter was in Honors Geometry last year as a Sophomore at West Tech and was having a very difficult time. Ken was very patient and competent in helping her to succeed in this course. I would recommend him to anyone who needs math assistance.

    Ken has an amazing ability to help students to understand math concepts and help them succeed in their studies. He was instrumental in assisting my son through his high school math and I have referred other students to him for assistance. He is the best!!!!
