I've been tutoring since 1998 when I started helping my high school friends with their math homework. After that, I tutored for a national tutoring company for about five years until about 2005. Around that time, I struck out on my own, and provided in home math tutoring to middle school, high school, and college students for several years until 2008.

Today, even though my career has taken me away from tutoring full-time, I continue to tutor math because it is one of my favorite subjects, and because helping people is one of the most rewarding ways to spend my time. It is a really meaningful experience for me when I can help someone get to that point where the ideas finally click into place, and s/he is able to see how concepts that at first seemed disconnected, in reality actually fit together perfectly as a whole.

Algebra 1

I taught Algebra 1 with a national tutoring chain for five years. I have taught Algebra 1 as a private tutor since 2001. I completed math classes at the university level through advanced calculus. This includes two semesters of elementary calculus, vector and multi-variable calculus, courses in linear algebra, differential equations, analysis, complex variables, number theory, and non-euclidean geometry.

Business

I have helped or led several start-up businesses, government programs, and non-profit organizations. In those roles, I served as a president, a chief operating officer, acting division chief, and consultant. I also have two advanced degrees in business. One is an M.S. in management with a concentration in finance, and the other is an M.B.A.

Calculus

I taught math with a national tutoring chain for five years. I have taught calculus as a private tutor since 2001. As an undergraduate, I took three semesters of elementary calculus, which included two semesters of single variable calculus and one semester of multivariable calculus. I also took two upper division courses in analysis and advanced calculus, which covered the more rigorous underpinnings of single variable calculus.

This includes two semesters of elementary calculus, vector and multi-variable calculus, courses in linear algebra, differential equations, analysis, complex variables, number theory, and non-euclidean geometry.

Guitar

I have played guitar for over 20 years, focusing primarily on rock and heavy metal genres. I also studied classical guitar for about four years. I also have formal and informal training in basic music theory. My teaching experience includes having taught several beginning students to play their favorite rock songs, read tablature, and basic sight reading from the staff. I have also worked with several beginning bass guitarists, as well. In terms of curriculum, I have used Troy Stetina instructional series for rock and heavy metal guitar, Aaron Shearer for classical guitar, and Fretboard Logic for lead guitar. I have also developed curriculum materials that include these resources and others to ensure the student receives well rounded lessons in all areas of instrumental music development.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Microsoft Excel since the late 1990s for professional, academic, and personal applications. In particular, I worked for a state public health program from 2006 to 2011 that required me to use Excel on a near daily basis. I have used it for financial modeling to calculate time value of money, net present values, internal rates of return, and others. I've also used it to track golf scores, bowling scores for a bowling league, developed an automated time sheet to track time and leave accrual for employees, used it to project pro forma financial statements for use in business plans and grant applications, and used it a variety of other applications.

Prealgebra

I taught Prealgebra with a national tutoring chain for five years. I have taught Prealgebra as a private tutor since 2001. I completed math classes at the university level through advanced calculus. This includes two semesters of elementary calculus, vector and multi-variable calculus, courses in linear algebra, differential equations, analysis, complex variables, number theory, and non-euclidean geometry.

Precalculus

I taught Precalculus with a national tutoring chain for five years. I have taught Precalculus as a private tutor since 2001. I completed math classes at the university level through advanced calculus. This includes two semesters of elementary calculus, vector and multi-variable calculus, courses in linear algebra, differential equations, analysis, complex variables, number theory, and non-euclidean geometry.

Study Skills

I taught the study skills program to many students during my five year tenure that I worked for a national tutoring company. I also always embed ongoing study skill tips and techniques as part of my the homework support that I provide to the students I privately tutor. When I work with students directly on study skills, we work together on their personal organization, time management, study strategies, goal setting, and test preparation.

Trigonometry

I taught Trigonometry with a national tutoring chain for five years. I have taught Trigonometry as a private tutor since 2001. I completed math classes at the university level through advanced calculus. This includes two semesters of elementary calculus, vector and multi-variable calculus, courses in linear algebra, differential equations, analysis, complex variables, number theory, and non-euclidean geometry.

Writing

Writing is a big part of the curriculum in both business and law schools, and I wrote extensively in each. In addition, I did heavy writing as an undergraduate that included an honors senior thesis in legal history and jurisprudential decision making, as well as a short piece I wrote that won the school's annual "best paper in ethics" award. Finally, I worked in state government for about 6 years in which I either drafted myself or edited a very wide variety of documents: white papers, legislative reports, grant applications, annual program reports, management by objectives work plans, contracts, purchase orders, and others.

Great tutor. Keith was extremely helpful in helping our daughter who was struggling in PreCalc. He only came a couple of times to help her get the concepts on an upcoming test. His help was very significant and our daughter got a 93 on that test! I would highly recommend Keith as a tutor. ...
