very very knowledgeable

Prof. Keith was incredible. He helped me get through what I didn’t understand and cleared up a lot of my gaps. Highly recommend using

Yash, 1 lesson with Keith

Extremely knowledgable

I had two lessons with Keith L. and I was impressed that he knew all the material without hesitation. My experience with every other tutor was that I had to wait while they "figured out" how to do the work themselves, but Keith knew instantly how to do the work, so there was no time wasted whatsoever. He's definitely worth the money because we covered at least twice the material than with other tutors. Because he knows the material so well, he is able to explain everything in a way that was clear to me. Thank you so much for your help.

COVID 19 HERO works here!

My son was overwhelmed with the online learning going on due to the COVID-19 shutdown of schools. I thought he was doing well but he confided that he was struggling. Within ten minutes of working with Keith I saw his demeanor change, he sat up straight and had a little smile. I could see that Keith was able to get him comfortable and confident - they worked for three straight hours and I could not be happier. Keith took the time to explain the tiniest of details and check for understanding.

John, 1 lesson with Keith

extremely knowledgeable and makes difficult topics as clear as possible!

I struggled wirh statics (even the basic concepts) and after a single hour spent with Keith the topics were much easier to understand. Keith was able to relate difficult topics to very simple concepts and provided various helpful methods that most professors/tutors would not be able to. After only a single meeting, he was able to explain things in much simpler ways. I would highly recommend him for anyone struggling in any topics and look forward to continue sessions with him! I only wish my current professor was as knowledgeable and helpful as he was!

Corbin, 3 lessons with Keith

thermodynamics

Very details lesson on thermodynamics problems. The diagram helps alot to picture the process. I would definitely recommend Keith for any Thermodynamics problem.

Sam, 2 lessons with Keith

Patient tutor

So far Keith has been great, the one-on-one attention has been very helpful for my daughter. We tried online tutoring but it was hard to communicate when my daughter simply didn't get it. Keith can recognize her body language and know when she doesn't get it and try to find another way to explain the problem.

Tracy, 4 lessons with Keith

Responsive, helpful, made time to meet

Responded super fast and immediately made time to meet for three long sessions a week before the SAT. Was very helpful and taught math shortcuts that schools do not teach in classes- so I felt more prepared and believe I won't have to rush through problems anymore. Thank you so much for the help!

Bailey, 3 lessons with Keith

Patient and very good at explaining difficult concepts. Highly recommended

Dr. L. was able to meet with me for two hours on short notice. We went over the thermodynamics of mechanical explosions, equations of state and the derivatives of some thermodynamic properties.

Jonah, 1 lesson with Keith

Knowledgeable and Patient

What I really like about Keith is he takes it back to the basics. He wants to ensure my son is able to complete his Algebra 2 problems with or without a calculator. Additionally, his engineering background allows him to tutor my son regarding his Principles of Engineering class. He’s a win win across the board.
