I'm an experienced teacher who loves helping students achieve their educational goals. I have a B.A. (History; Math), two M.A.'s (European History; History of Science, Medicine, & Technology), and a wide range of teaching: taught many different college history courses; high school math; junior high math and science; ESL in Taiwan; chess. Also have good standardized test scores (e.g., GRE 790V, 780M, 720A; "competitive" score on the NSA's Professional Qualifications Test) and several years teaching SAT, GRE, and GMAT for a national test prep company. I think learning should be fun as well as productive. A sense of humor is an asset in any endeavor, including education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ASVAB

I have had success preparing students for the ASVAB, and I especially enjoy helping them tackle the word problems on the Arithmetic Reasoning section. Time management is important, and test-taking strategies are key.

Chess

I have a candidate master (expert) rating, and for three years taught chess in a summer program at Towson University.

COOP/HSPT

When I taught at a Catholic middle school, I helped eighth-graders prepare for these tests. The students were happy with their actual test results, and every student was accepted by a Catholic high school.

ESL/ESOL

During a year at the American Institute in Taiwan I developed and taught ESL/ESOL courses to Chinese professionals in business, government, and academia.

ISEE

I have experience teaching with a tutoring service all levels of the ISEE. Students have credited their success to a better understanding of test strategies and the topics tested.

Praxis

My math major and experience teaching math (high school, middle school, college; test-prep) are two factors that makes me qualified to tutor Praxis I Math. Even more importantly, I did well on the more comprehensive MTEL test for high school math. The MTEL tests all the topics Praxis I Math does, as well a few other topics (e.g., Calculus). I did well on all the subareas, including the open response, where I received the highest score, “Thorough.” (The open response section involves answering two multipart problems. The section score evaluates quality of explanation in addition to correctness.) Because of my results on the MTEL, I obtained certification to teach Math, 8-12 in public schools in Massachusetts.

PSAT

I have experience helping students prepare for the PSAT. According to one student, this preparation was also helpful in laying the foundation for later success on the SAT.

SSAT

When I took the SSAT myself, I did well and this was one factor in receiving a scholarship to a first-rate secondary school. I also have a few years of experience tutoring the SSAT for a national test prep company.

Great Tutor! — Keith tutored me for 3 months before taking the GMAT, helping me to score a 730 and finish in the 96th percentile of all test takers. During this time, Keith demonstrated impressive knowledge of both Math and Verbal concepts and helped me to greatly improve upon my weak areas. Keith not only helped me to learn core competencies for this exam, but also provided helpful test-taking strategy advice ...
