About Keith

I have a Bachelor's Degree in both English and Psychology and a Master's in English with over 40 hours of graduate course work in Clinical Psychology. I have worked in education for 8 years, have a passion for helping students, and knowledgeable in the psychological processes of learning. In addition to my specialized fields, I have also tutored U.S. history, world history, and the U.S. Constitution, both in individual and group formats. I have also assisted in individuals obtaining citizenship in the U.S.

I began my academic career later than most, so I have an appreciation for tight work schedules and understand the value of education in assisting individuals in the work force. Although I always loved learning new things, I enrolled in college to pursue my passion for Shakespeare. Soon I became fascinated with the psychological conceptualizations of human behavior and mental processes. I pursued both passions in my post-graduate coursework.

Although my current position entails the education of psychological principles, I have a proven track record in assisting students in writing and interpreting literature. Most importantly, I encourage students to think critically, to understand that nothing can be removed from their social contexts, and that all things come with an inherent bias; to fully understand the material one must keep these issues in mind and not simply accept the information because a text book tells you so.

I have experience assisting student of various levels. I also have the knowledge and experience of utilizing various instructional techniques to maximize retention and understanding of the material presented.

Political Science

I have taken a college course on this subject, received an A, and tutored this course in a college setting for four years. I have also tutored individuals on how our government works for the purposes of taking a citizenship test.
