"Saved the Day"
Becky from Cave Creek, AZ
My son got the bad news he was half a credit short in Algebra to graduate from high school. He had one shot at retaking the final, and only 2 weeks to prepare. In desperation, I found Keith on the internet and took a leap of faith. Well long story short, he took the final yesterday and got an 84.78%. His first final was at a 43%. If Keith is available HIRE HIM. He was prompt, compassionate, and understood our goals. Also, my son felt that somebody finally got him and broke down the brick wall of math. This was just an amazing turnaround in a young man who felt defeated, but now feels like he has a command of Algebra. This review cannot do justice to how grateful we feel in finding our "Wizard Tutor". I wish we had done it sooner.
"Keith The Best"
Deb from Chandler, AZ
I have been working with Keith since last July to prepare for my MBA program and brush up on my math skills. I have continued to work with Keith through my MBA program in Accounting - Thank goodness. Keith is able to explain the concepts to me and is able to help me really understand what I am learning. I am now working with Keith on Economics for the program. He is so easy to work with and patient with and easy to work with. Keith is truly a God send and the best to work with.
"Excellent, I'm sold!"
Joe from Gilbert, AZ
I've had two sessions with Keith and I can already see the results of our hard work. Keith makes the most difficult topics understandable by using simple examples. For anyone who is on the fence about using a tutor I would 100% recommend they look no further than Keith. While others in my course are continuing to struggle I now have the confidence and knowledge I need to successfully pass my course. Thanks Keith!
"Great tutor, reliable, patient."
Elisin from Paradise Valley, AZ
Keith helped our 7th grader to study for her physics test. She was feeling stress about some of the topics and he explained her in a way that she could understand better and solve the problems. We definitely recommend him.
"We are sold!"
Gisele from Phoenix, AZ
In 3 short lessons, Keith has given our daughter such a boost in confidence. Her scores on ACT prep have dramatically increased and feels better prepared to take on this exam. Keith KNOWS these college entrance tests and the methods and templates to teach each section. My daughter feels that he explains the lessons well and is very patient and easy to work with. It is so nice to work with someone who has a plan of attack and gets results too.
Gina from Phoenix, AZ
Keith has been helping me prepare for the GMAT. Though I have only had a few sessions with him, I know that he will help me get the score that I need to get into grad school. Keith is very encouraging and positive. He has established a great study plan and provided me with study materials. Due to the study plan I am able to determine my areas of weakness and focus on them while still exercising subjects that I am strong in. He has also showed me short cuts and simpler ways to approach problems which are necessary in order to complete all questions on the timed exam.
Howard from Tempe, AZ
Keith has helped my daughter in Calculus to solidify concepts that her college professor could not do. She thought that he was very patient and it was nice that he wrote down the concepts for her so she could review when she left. Keith was very flexible with our timetable which was not easy to work with. He found the time to make it work and communicated very well. I would highly recommend Keith!
"Excellent tutor for college level calc."
Jennifer from Tempe, AZ
Keith is prompt with replying and easy to reach. He is an invaluable asset in helping my college freshman daughter with her calculus. We have never had an issue with availability or lateness. He is patient, kind and explains the material well. My daughter and I highly recommend him and will continue to use him.
"Great AP Calculus tutor!"
Brandie from Gilbert, AZ
My daughter was struggling with AP Calculus, a required course at her college prep high school. After 2 sessions with Keith, her quiz and test grades were 20-30% higher than before. Better yet, she now has confidence in her ability to comprehend new chapters, and she knows she has a resource who can address her specific questions. We've ended up scheduling a session a week, which has been well worth the investment of both time and money.
Sheri from Chandler, AZ
Keith did a fantastic job with my ninth grade twins. What they were failing to grasp in class with their instructor, Keith made crystal clear to them. I highly recommend him for short-term or long-term tutoring needs.
Gwen from Tempe, AZ
I hired Keith, because he had great reviews, and I guess I thought you get what you pay for. So even though his rate was way higher then most of the tutors, I hired him to tutor my son in Calculus (college Engineering level) this summer. Unfortunately, my son failed the class, and Keith made promises he did not keep. I don't completely blame Keith, but he definitely didn't help my son pass the class. When I asked if he would consider lowering his rate since he wasn't successful with helping the first time around he agreed to give my son some "free" lessons. So this fall they met once more, with Keith taking some problems back home to work on, and saying he would get back to my son before his test. He never delivered, and never responded to my sons emails or texts. Obviously, he decided it wasn't worth his time or effort. So for the second time he did not deliver.
Keith replied on 11/29/2012:
Hi Gwen, my apologies to you and your son. Let me know what I can do to remedy the situation. I have been tutoring and teaching for years and I have never received a negative review. I will refund your money.
Just for the record, here's my take on the issue. Ive met with your son and had a session with him, after that session if he or you were not happy with the service you could have easily ended our working relationship, in fact if you had requested a refund i would be more than happy to obliged, however, neither you nor your son did that so we had 3-4 more sessions, he then sat for an exam and did not do well. i understand and sounds like you do too that sometimes we can do all we can but thats not enough since it comes down to the student and the teacher who administered the exam. i have no control over how tough or off this exam will be. As part of my service i even offered free sessions moving forward. next semester rolls by and you asked for help on environmental sciences which i am not familiar with i was willing to do my best. Your son and i met to go over his exam prep, during that time i made it clear that this is not something i have done but i can show him how to research the questions since neither his notes or textbook were of any use. i informed him if i have time i would forward him what i found out.
Please understand that I've tried my best as environmental sciences is not a subject I normally tutor.
As of now, I am willing to refund all your fees. For other interested students please see and read all my reviews they are all exceptional.
"Excellent Tutor "
Margaret from Glendale, AZ
I was having issues with the concepts of Chemistry for about a month now and Keith literally explained and clarified all the issues I had within 30 minutes. I plan on meeting with him again, very helpful.
"Very qualified! Awesome!"
Dave from Mesa, AZ
I've been out of college for 7 years and decided to go back to get my MBA. The GMAT is a tricky one like that. I've forgotten a lot of basics, Keith didn't waste time trying to "re-teach" me the basics he knew I'd remember once he showed me the shortcuts and tricks inherent in the GMAT. It worked. I've improved my practice tests over 100 pts! Keith is an Extreeeeemly smart dude! Like I said, worth every cent. He pushed me to try my hardest and was patient with my mistakes. Easy to schedule appointments and works with you to meet at convenient locations. Tell him what you want to achieve and he can accommodate for any level of learning.
Keith replied on 8/13/2012:
Thanks, Dave for the awesome compliment. Much appreciated. Ok, give it all you got Tuesday! Best of luck to you. Sending you all the Eagle power I can muster, hehe. Also, make sure you guys come over for my Luau in Oct.
Derek from Tempe, AZ
Kieth is very receptive to his students' abilities. It's as if a tutor came equipped with a controller for different speeds and rewind/fast forward. Highly recommended.
Connie from Mesa, AZ
Keith knew the material and was able to explain difficult concepts in differential equations. He went beyond the tutoring session to send me files that explained the material better than my text.
"Gets down to business"
Heidi from Mesa, AZ
Keith gets right down to business, answering questions in a way that is understandable and direct. He is very good about staying on topic, very efficient with his time. He is difficult to book, very busy, but with good reason. Highly recommended! We will use him again next year.
"Now I get it"
Brendon from Chandler, AZ
Keith moved quickly when appropriate and was able to slow down and provide more detail when it was needed. I found it easy to follow along for the full two hours and found that I learned more in that time than I learned in the ten hours of studying alone the week before. My anxiety is gone and I feel completely confident that I will pass discrete math with an appropriate understanding despite my previous knowledge being only first year algebra. Thanks Keith!
"My son's favorite"
Leslie from Mesa, AZ
My son has been struggling all year to keep his head above water in AP Chemistry. He met with Keith for the first time last night after going through quite a few other tutors. We were scheduled to meet for just one trial hour, but it was going so well, and my son was so visibly encouraged, that he wanted to - and hoped I'd let him - go a second hour. He reported to me afterward that Keith is by far his favorite tutor he's ever had, and that nobody else has been able to explain things so well. We look forward to working with him some more, and feel confident that he will be able to help my son fill in the gaps so he can finish well.
"Supportive, patient and knowledgeable!!"
Jonathan from Tempe, AZ
Keith takes the time to write out comments on exactly what he taught the student and as a parent, he communicates with me and keeps me in the loop. I cannot thank him enough for his expertise and patience in teaching Calculus and Physics!!! Not easy subjects.
"Awesome tutor! "
Caitlin from Scottsdale, AZ
Keith is a great tutor! He helped me with my Physics homework, and gave me additional problems to practice on. Physics does not come to me easily, but with Keith's help, I feel like I am doing a lot better than I would on my own. I would definetly recommend him to other students!
"Excellent Chemistry Tutor"
Jennifer from Scottsdale, AZ
Keith was extremely proficient in the field of Chemistry. He was very accommodating to an immediate appointment and helped my son catch up in only one session. We look forward to further sessions to keep my son on track for the school year.
"Great teacher of physics."
Brandi from Chandler, AZ
My daughter struggled along in her 1st semester of physics with a C average, and only after a couple weeks with Keith at the start of a new semester my daughter has a taken leaps and bounds in her understanding of physics. Keith's teaching style is clear and gets right to the point of problem solving. Keith provides immediate and frequent feedback about the tutoring sessions and he is very flexible about scheduling. Best of all, my daughter can follow and understand better the flow of teachings and discussion in the classroom which has greatly improved her confidence within the classroom setting.
"Great Tutor -- moved our son from a "B" student to an "A++"!!"
Karyn from Paradise Valley, AZ
Our son was struggling in Grade 12 Calculus so we hired Keith. At the beginning of the course, our son was concerned that he would not even pass the course. He took his final exam last week and received a 98% mark in his final. He ended up with almost a perfect grade for the year
Thanks to Keith, my son surpassed his own expectations and is so proud of himself for this achievement.
Mary from Phoenix, AZ
Keith helped my daughter in just one session - she aced her math test! He is patient, prepared, and was very flexible with scheduling.
"Outstanding MCAT tutor"
Donna from Chandler, AZ
Keith is very knowledgeable, flexible and qualified. Not only does he provide in depth tutoring lessons in each MCAT subject area, but he has helped my son in multiple aspects of the med school process.
"Passionate about Physics"
Shannon from Mesa, AZ
Keith is passionate about physics, really knows his material, and helped my daughter (who is in her second year of IB HL Physics) to understand Atomic and Nuclear Physics in a common sense way.
Eiman from Tempe, AZ
I had him for statistics and he is very patient! I like his way of explaining thing.. take him as a tutor, he is great!
James from Tempe, AZ
Keith clearly has mastery of the fields he teaches and has an exceptional skill of quickly assessing your level of understanding and working with you to improve your knowledge level quickly. He is very conscious of making sure you understand the material by balancing lecture with actively working out problems - very learning focused.
For the MCAT, his mapping techniques have been beneficial in improving my verbal score. Additionally, his mastery of the physical sciences is impressive and very beneficial for test prep. Highly recommended.
Paul from Glendale, AZ
Keith is a great tutor and is very well versed in Physics...He has definitely helped me become more comfortable with Physics.
"Excellent Tutor 5 stars "
Rosa from Gilbert, AZ
Keith is an excellent tutor he knows the material he teaches (AP Calculus AB in this case), he's on time for the sessions, if needed past normal tutor hours he accommodates sessions to fit my son's busy schedule, makes material easy to understand.
"Keith made the difference"
Lauren from Tempe, AZ
Keith was very helpful. He was accommodating to my schedule. He took the time to explain things to me in a way I could understand. He helped me with homework problems so I could understand (they were not graded and never reviewed in class). I got a B in Calculus II and I think Keith's help is what made the difference. Now on to Calc III.
"Great for time sensitive material"
Jeremy from Phoenix, AZ
I contacted Keith with a java project that needed to be done literally the next day and he assured me it would be ready by the time I needed it to be finished. Sure enough it was. Everything worked out great and was easily understandable in the way the code was written.
I also appreciate Keith taking time out of his personal time to help me, not many people would go to such lengths to do that and I think that sets Keith apart from others.
Ashley from Gilbert, AZ
Keith was very helpful in my preparation for the MCAT. I hired him for Physics and Gen Chem. I would recommend Keith to anyone!
Deborah from Gilbert, AZ
Keith is an excellent tutor, he is reliable and always on time. I found him to be a great communicator with a talent for helping me understand the subject by using simple concepts. He has helped me accomplish my goals and meet the deadlines for my IT Securities class.
"Lucky To Have Found Him"
Tasha from Mesa, AZ
What a fantastic tutor! Keith prepared my son for his college placement exam, in two weeks. He had only taken one semester of chemistry when he was a sophomore in high school. We teased, but it was true, that they could have covered an entire year of chemistry, had they had just one more month. My son expressed that Keith made chemistry very easy to understand, and enjoyable. We will definitely use him again if needed while my son is in college.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends who are looking for a tutor for their student.
"Tutors with clarity and patients!"
Veronica from Avondale, AZ
Keith has been wonderful to work with. I had little success working with two tutors prior to finding Keith on WyzAnt. Keith demonstrated a vested interest in my ability to understand the statistical concepts I had to learn. He was easy to work with, personable and extremely patient. He has a natural ability to tutor with clarity and help his students feel confident. By the time I connected with Keith, I was in the 3rd week of a 6 week course and was on the borderline of earning a D for the class. I am proud to announce that I have just finished the class and passed with a solid B! I will continue to use Keith for my future tutoring needs and would highly recommend him to other students in need of tutoring!
"Easy to work with"
Chelsea from Phoenix, AZ
Keith is an amazing tutor! In the past I have struggled with math, but ever since Keith started tutoring me my grade has not only improved, but I actually understand the concepts being taught. I once thought I would never be able to comprehend math as a subject but Keith explains everything very throughly, and if I don't understand it the first time he will walk through the problem step by step until I'm confident about reaching the answer on my own. Highly recommend! :)
Debbie from Gilbert, AZ
Keith is a very patient tutor with my son who has ADHD. He is very smart, easy to get along with, prompt, and courteous. It only took my son 2 sessions to "catch on" to trigonometry. We will definitely use him again for future needs!
Edward from Maricopa, AZ
Keith is a very patient instructor. I enjoyed my first session with him and look forward to having success in math with him in the future.
"Very accommodating and intelligent "
Paul from Phoenix, AZ
Our session was intense, but it was mostly my doing. I feel I would have otherwise done poorly had it not been for Keith. We just needed more time but he was very considerate of my time and need, and for that I am grateful and would recommend him to anyone!
Janice from Chandler, AZ
Keith is very knowledgeable in many areas. I need assistance with getting a certain grade on my ACT and he is advising me on how to succeed. He is patient and understanding and takes the time to listen to my needs and wants. He is guiding me to reach my goal.
"Great tutor, highly recommend!"
Tamara from Tempe, AZ
I was able to work at my own pace with Keith; he is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to work on any of the GRE sections. He has access to valuable resources and offered great advice for going about preparing for the GRE.
"Listening tutor "
Gillian from Gilbert, AZ
Keith listened to what I needed and is coming up with a comprehensive schedule for me to succeed in not only passing my test but also in teaching physics. He had a lot of great recommendations for additional study resources. Keith reviewed the material I gave him ahead of time so that our first meeting was very productive!
