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.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
