I am a 60 year-old Mechanical Engineering Professor at the U.S. Naval Academy. I have a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Maryland. I have 8 years of teaching experience at the University of Maryland and 31 years at the U.S. Naval Academy. As a Professor, I have hundreds of hours of experience working with students one on one as well as countless hours of tutoring my own very successful children when they were young.
Recently, I have had great success helping students significantly improve their Math SAT scores. I am willing to tutor any math class, K-12, any calculus class, math SAT prep, math ACT prep and some college classes such as Statics, Dynamics, and Thermodynamics.

This man is an exceptional tutor. Keith is prompt, courteous, and professional. He understands the subject thoroughly but also has a gift of teaching the material in a manner that the student can understand. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found him. I would suggest that anyone considering tutors, to not be dissuaded by his higher rate. You have to consider that this man can teach material in a manner that is grasped quickly and thoroughly when compared to a tutor with a cheaper rate. Another tutor may take twice as long to convey the same understanding to your student.
Keith is exactly what we thought he would be for my son. He is giving Gavin an organized manor to preform proper problem solving in Math.
My son was delighted with his first tutoring session. He really likes Keith. He instructs in a way that is easy to understand and he is approachable and friendly.
Our son's sixth grade teacher recommended we get a math tutor to help our son a little bit in some areas and we are very grateful to have found Dr. Keith!! He is very knowledgeable, calm and very easy to understand. Our son quickly picked up what he was being taught. We are looking forward to working with him again!! I would recommend him to anyone both young and old.
Thank you for working with my son this past week. He really seemed to enjoy the lesson and looks forward to this next Thursday.
We had gone over basic algebra problems and rules. He made sure that I understood something before we moved on.
Easily established a good working relationship with my son and after only one session his test scores when up by at least 10% or a whole grade level!
Dr. Keith is very professional and an expert in his subject matter. My son's school is paperless and all work and tests are on ipads. This was new for Dr. Keith and the way Dr Keith worked everything out on paper was new to my son. Funny!
After the session, my daughter was actually happy to continue to work on physics problems. This was after many nights of tears and struggles. She is excited about the next session.
Keith was on time, very professional, prepared for the first lesson, made a very good impression. My son liked the structure of the lesson, and we will definitely continue having lessons with Keith. Will write later about the results.
I feel confident that Keith's approach to the material was thorough and well targeted to my daughter's specific needs. He was also very easy to work with in terms of scheduling. I'm very glad we contacted him.
This was my daughters first time using a professional Tutor. Keith was on time and tutoring started almost immediately. He provided several ways to look at and solve chemistry problems. Keith also suggested how to develop a specific study guide for the section of chemistry they were reviewing.
My son enjoys working with Keith very much. Preparing for the SAT and ACT has been an enjoyable experience instead of a task. He looks forward to their lessons!
Keith was a great help to my daughter improving her test scores. She stated that he is very patient and "he doesn't make me feel stupid!" She always enjoyed her tutoring.
Keith is an excellent geometry tutor. He explained all the theorems/formulas in detail that was very easy to understand (when listening I even remembered geometry from many years ago - not a subject I really wanted to relearn). He was patient and made sure that my daughter did understand the concepts before leaving or changing to another subject. Highly recommend if you have a child that is struggling with geometry.
Keith started working on SAT math with my daughter after she had already taken the test once. He taught her different ways of doing the exercises and reached a new level of complexity. After only a few sessions, she took the test for the second time and her math score went up 110 points! She has been very happy with his lessons and continued to receive tutoring from him to prepare for the Math Subject Test and ACT.
My son will be taking the PSAT in the fall and we intend to have Keith help him prepare for it too.
Keith has tutored my son for seven sessions. He has really helped his confidence and brought him up to speed in his Algebra 1 class. He is now backfilling some gaps in my son's skills that contributed to the problem. We are very pleased with the results so far.
My son never thought he'd be able to understand Algebra II - he has learned so much in just the few sessions he's had with Keith.
Keith is a wonderful tutor. His is very patient and knowledgeable, making the subjects easy to comprehend. We would highly recommend him for any age.
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.
As an engineering professor, I have a wide background well suited for the subjects on the ASVAB test. As a professor at the U. S. Naval Academy, I am well suited as a mentor for anyone considering a military future.
As an engineering professor, I use calculus often and provide one to one tutoring to my engineering students.
I always enjoyed helping my three children with their math homework as they grew up. I was always very patient with them and I am proud to say that all three are now very successful adults.
I have been teaching Mechanical Engineering at the college level for 36 years. The subjects that I have taught most often are Thermodynamics, Statics and Dynamics. My students always praise me for showing them the easiest way to solve difficult problems.
Physics was always one of my favorite subjects. I enjoyed tutoring my children in physics when they were in high school.
I am an engineering professor with a very strong math background. I have read and studied several poker books and play professionally at low limits. I completely understand how to calculate pot odds when determining whether or not it is proper to make a bet when you are still waiting for a card on the turn or river to complete a flush or straight.
