Instructor Bio

Bob Kuhn taught for 34 years in several locations.  Until his retirement in 2011, Bob worked in Winston-Salem, NC, but he also spent eight years abroad in the Department of Defense Dependent Schools system in Mannheim, Germany.  He is a graduate of Pfeiffer University (BA) and Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School of English (MA).  Although he has taught all levels and grades of high school English over the course of his career, he was an Advanced Placement English teacher almost exclusively for the last 25 years, so he has seen the changes in testing and course philosophy over time.  He began scoring AP exams in 1992 (first in Literature, then in Language) and has been a table leader since 2005.  A consultant for the English Language program for College Board’s southern region since 1998, Bob continues to do one-day workshops and summer institutes.  Mr. Kuhn has spent his entire career as an AP consultant striving to make Advanced Placement English as broadly applicable to all students as possible. Bob is married and lives with his wife Cathy in High Point, NC.
