Introduction: Hi there! As an educational psychologist and former teacher, I've taught and tutored across four-and-a-half decades, working with students from every grade from first up to the professoriate. During that time, I've worked with individuals with a very wide range of learning and mental health challenges. That degree of experience, coupled with decades of training as a learning theorist, enable me to provide an approach tailored to the strengths and needs of each student. I focus on mathematics, reading, writing, and statistics and use a wide variety of online materials I subscribe to, including practice sheets that I create in real-time and can email to students. The pandemic has set many learners back one to two years. My mission in life has been, and continues to be, helping students of all ages and backgrounds gain the confidence they need to achieve at their highest levels!

My son (high school senior) was really having a hard time in AP Stats and was giving up. He was having panic attacks at school. I contacted Todd last week and has tutored my son 3x since then. You would not believe how much more positive my son is about getting through this class. He felt as if Todd understood exactly what he was going through. We are continuing with Todd for tutoring twice a week. My only regret is that I did not find KC Pro Tutor sooner!

I reached out to Mr. Morgan when my daughter was in fifth grade . She was really struggling with Math. Lacked the attention she needed in a classroom. Digital learning was very difficult . Her teacher didn’t take the time to explain. Share best practices or offer assistance to struggling students. She was impatient . Day ONE , he asked her questions , found an interest that he could connect with her and break the ice . During our time , he used apps, math tools, games and downloaded assignments similar to her work in school to help her mastery. He helped with homework when needed. With English , he helped her paragraph writing. He read assignments . Asked questions to help her build sentences. Got the wheels moving ! Then wrapped it up by creating the paragraph . Fast forward to her current school year, my daughter was placed in advanced math !! Mr . Morgan was a breath of fresh air during a difficult time . The tools and strategic thinking she learned while his student have stayed with her to this day. I 1000% recommend him ! You will not be disappointed.

It has been great working with the KC pro tutor. Todd is very professional and very knowledgeable. He is on time and very flexible. On occasion when my daughter needs extra help he is great with giving her extra time. Besides math, he has also been able to help my daughter with other subjects. He is well aware of the curriculum of blue valley schools which even makes it easier for kids. He is reasonably priced, something that is hard to find these days. I would highly recommend him.

My daughter was failing college algebra. We tried peer tutors with minimal success, so we decided to get a professional’s help. Omg, and it was so worth it. Todd provided clear, concise feedback. He took his time with our daughter helping her navigate through each problem. He even provided extra resources to enhance her learning. We are so thankful we found him. We will be using him again shortly. Recommend!

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My bachelor's degree is in elementary education with additional certifications in math, English, and social studies through 9th grade. I have two master's degrees, one in educational psychology from a school of education and one from a school of behavioral sciences. In addition, I'm ABD in a PhD program; that is, I fulfilled all the requirements for a PhD except a finished dissertation project. I've spent most of my life in school, so this has helped keep me current with knowledge in my field; moreover, I spend a great deal of time reading journals, books, and scholarly articles on the Internet relating to the fields of education and psychology. I am constantly studying!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    After my second year of college, I tutored remedial reading and mathematics for the Shawnee Mission School District. I worked with elementary students. My supervisors noted my extreme patience with the students as well as my desire to get to the bottom of their learning challenges. After that summer experience, I decided to become a teacher!

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Over the years, I've typically worked with students with low self-confidence and struggling with particular academic subjects such as math, reading, and writing. My goals are always to greatly improve their skills and their self-confidence.
