About Keith

I am a recent graduate from Rowan University with a Communication Studies BA degree. With my tutoring methods, I value strong communication with both the parents and my potential students. I am willing to listen and understand any issue and/or difficulty the students may have in regards to the subject I am teaching.

When teaching, I do best by giving examples and carefully and effectively showing the students the subject matter I am covering. I also review (a) the subject matter I have taught during the tutoring session, (b) the student's homework to point out both strengths and possible areas of improvement and (c) how the student has improved since beginning tutoring. Over the course of my tutoring lessons, I will also communicate with both the parents and the student to see how well the student is doing in school and how they have improved both from the parent's point of view and the students.

Approved subjects

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.

Composition (Music)

I have been composing music for seven years and I strictly follow the rules behind counterpoint, orchestration of different styles of music, and apply different chord progressions in order to complete a piece of music. I have already written a concerto, prologues, three nocturnes, and I am currently working on a symphony. I have taken a number of music theory and composition courses along with private tutoring in composition.


Being both a Communication Studies major and a Writing Arts major requires me to be prolific with the English Language. Along with taking 6 credits of linguistics classes, I can provide my students quality education in the English Language. I can help with phonetics, syntax, morphology and how words are constructed. I will also apply my knowledge on how to form complete sentences and how to write in the English Language.


With writing prolifically for over 10 years, I have developed a strong knowledge of grammar and punctuation. Along with going to school for degrees that require strong English skills, grammar has become a necessary factor in order to communicate effectively through numerous means. I can provide my students with a comfortable learning atmosphere for quality understanding of grammar and punctuation.


Every form of writing requires a different skill set in order to read and comprehend what is being read. With literature, and also taking numerous classes in creative writing and literature, I can provide my students with not just skills in reading, but also help develop strong interest in literature.

Microsoft Excel

While being a Communication Studies major at Rowan as well as taking 9 credits in geography classes, Microsoft excel has been a necessary tool for proper learning in these classes for the past three years. I can provide my knowledge and my experience to my future students who need a basic understanding of Microsoft Excel for future use.

Microsoft Word

With my writing classes at Rowan, majority of our writing had to be completed through Microsoft Word and we also had to complete numerous critiques of other's work through specific means on Microsoft Word. I can provide my students numerous short-hand skills and necessary knowledge to allow them to be prolific at Microsoft Word for future usages.

Music Theory

With playing the piano and composing music for seven years, I hold a strong understanding and quality knowledge about music theory. I have taken 15 credits of music classes and have read numerous books on counterpoint, orchestration, and music theory. I can provide my students with a strong understanding of music theory through practices and reviews.


I have been playing the piano for seven years and know many keys outside of the major, minor, melodic and harmonic minor keys (such as pentatonic). I have taken private tutoring lessons for 5 years. I also carry a collection of different piano pieces that help students learn how to play the piano.


With being a Writing Art's major, it is necessary in my field to consistently proofread different forms of writing. I have taken over 24 credits in writing classes and I will be taking another 18 credits worth come my Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters. I will provide to my students with effective learning to understand how to proofread and edit their writing.

Public Speaking

I have received an A- in my public speaking course by following all the rules and theories behind rhetoric and rhetorical criticism. I have also taught a few classes on behalf of my professors at Rowan University. I have also been taught, and thus generally apply, how to write concise and well-written speeches. I have also participated in a number of impromptu speeches.


With being a Writing Arts major, I have to read and write prolifically in order to stay on top of the subject matter. I have become prolific in reading scholarly journals, fiction, nonfiction and even poetry. With my experience in reading, I can offer numerous tips and skills to make my students a prolific reader as well without worrying about stress.

Study Skills

When it comes to studying skills, I greatly value time management and I encourage time management skills. I will teach students how to make the most of their time with their homework and how they can get as much done in the least amount of time.


I have taken a Linguistics class and a Linguistic Anthropology, allowing me to understand and comprehend a vast array of words for both of my majors. I will provide quality teaching and tutoring to my students to allow them to comprehend their vocabulary words and simple tips and skills to keep and grow their vocabulary at an efficient level.

World History

I have always held a strong interest in world history and have completed numerous readings on my own free time in this subject matter. Along with this, I have also taken three classes of history with a particular interest in how our culture is affected by it today. With my tutoring, I can provide skills and a keen interest in World History by applying what happened in the past is still in effect today.
