About Keith


Bio

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,...

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.

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.
Microsoft Excel,

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.

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.

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.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient

We threw a bunch of high level geometry questions without context materials to Keith and he did very well. He also explained the steps in a very clear way. He is very sharp and well organized.

knowledgeable and patien

Keith have explained to us the material we appointed to him in an easy way which made the material understood. We're willing to seeing him again for also a different material.

Amazing tutor!

Keith is a great tutor! He's super helpful and an extremely nice guy. He's super knowledgeable and he was always on time and well prepared. I couldn't have passed my GED without him. Thank you Keith!

He Made It Easy to Understand

Those were my daughter's words and I couldn't be more pleased. I appreciate Keith's flexibility, demeanor, and professionalism. My daughter was very comfortable and is looking forward to their next session.

Nicole, 11 lessons with Keith

Excellent Tutor

My daughter's grade went from a C to an A as a result of Keith's help. He is very patient and spoke on the same level as my daughter, which allowed her to understand the material much easier. He was very flexible and accommodating to our schedule. I would highly recommend him and will definitely utilize his services again next year if my daughter needs help in math.

Couldn't Be Happier

Keith R. is approachable, flexible to work with time-wise, and really knows his subject. We have been able to communicate very well by email and phone. Our teenager who is pretty much a math whiz started to have trouble understanding some advanced trigonometry and pre-calculus problems and concepts. Keith has been patient, persistent, understandable, and friendly. Our teenager didn't have a math book assigned in class, which I think was part of the problem; when asked, Keith was able to recommend a text. My daughter is really getting the stuff now! Many thanks to Keith. We are going to continue with him through to the end of the school year and final exam. If our student needs help next school year for calculus and Keith covers that area, we will call on him again if he is available.

Consistent Tutor

Keith consistently delivers a quality tutoring session. He's also flexible when schedules have to be rearranged. Our student's engagement and energy level fluctuates tremendously due to his busy schedule, and Keith adjusts accordingly. Great tutor.

What A Blessing! What a Fantastic Tutor!

I have to admit that in the beginning I was very reluctant/apprehensive regarding using Wyzant. After having been tutored by 4 previous tutors in my area and not retaining anything, I decided to give Keith R. a try. OMG! I feel so badly that I didn't go with him from the very beginning. But as the old saying goes, "We saved the best for last." Keith has been thorough and I am learning and retaining ALL that he has taught me. I am almost 60 years old, with some disabilities due to being a "Wounded Warrior" in the US Army, pursing my college degree. Keith speaks and explains concepts and algorithms, in a language which I understand. He is an excellent motivator, and when I was giving up on myself, he hadn't. The meeting places have been awesome, the library, and even McDonalds. Keith is very dependable and flexible with time. I would love to give him references, he is very articulate, bright, and a very nice guy. I feel confident that I will pass my final exam with the tutoring I've gotten from Keith. Kudos to Wyzant. Keep Keith busy!!!

Patient and very knowledgeable with algebra concepts

Hello everyone. I would recommend Keith R. as a tutor for you, especially if you have challenges with algebra. He was very patient when helping me understand my algebra homework. I have not worked on algebra in over twenty years and it has been quite challenging for me to recall and comprehend these concepts again. I appreciate Keith's help with putting me on the right track.
