Quick tips to play Kennen

Use your range advantage against melee champions to bully them down and contest them for every CS. Try and stay at max range at all times so they cannot trade back with you.
If the enemy has lots of disengage or peel, be prepared to flank from the side in team fights to make full use of your Ultimate Slicing MaelstromR.
Kennen is one of the few champions that can be built AP or on hit. Take a look at what damage your team needs and build accordingly.
