Also have good standardized test scores (e.g., GRE 790V, 780M, 720A; "competitive" score on the NSA's Professional Qualifications...

I think learning should be fun as well as productive. A sense of humor is an asset in any endeavor, including education.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I have had success preparing students for the ASVAB, and I especially enjoy helping them tackle the word problems on the Arithmetic Reasoning section. Time management is important, and test-taking strategies are key.
COOP/HSPT,

COOP/HSPT

When I taught at a Catholic middle school, I helped eighth-graders prepare for these tests. The students were happy with their actual test results, and every student was accepted by a Catholic high school.
ISEE,

ISEE

I have experience teaching with a tutoring service all levels of the ISEE. Students have credited their success to a better understanding of test strategies and the topics tested.
Praxis,

Praxis

My math major and experience teaching math (high school, middle school, college; test-prep) are two factors that makes me qualified to tutor Praxis I Math. Even more importantly, I did well on the more comprehensive MTEL test for high school math. The MTEL tests all the topics Praxis I Math does, as well a few other topics (e.g., Calculus). I did well on all the subareas, including the open response, where I received the highest score, “Thorough.” (The open response section involves answering two multipart problems. The section score evaluates quality of explanation in addition to correctness.) Because of my results on the MTEL, I obtained certification to teach Math, 8-12 in public schools in Massachusetts.
PSAT,

PSAT

I have experience helping students prepare for the PSAT. According to one student, this preparation was also helpful in laying the foundation for later success on the SAT.
SSAT,

SSAT

When I took the SSAT myself, I did well and this was one factor in receiving a scholarship to a first-rate secondary school. I also have a few years of experience tutoring the SSAT for a national test prep company.

Brilliant, patient and resourceful!

Feeling more ready, confident and excited about taking the test. We have been working more and more often and it’s just great that Keith has the flexibility and the availability to work things out with me in order to get me ready for the test. I highly recommend Kieth. He is always prepared with materials and he is great at answering questions during and after sessions!

Excellent Tutor

I reached out to Keith to help me start studying for the GRE because it felt like an overwhelming amount of material and I wasn't sure how to approach studying for it. Keith has been extremely helpful. He is able to explain problems very clearly and has a lot of helpful tips and shortcuts. If I don't understand an explanation the first time, he always finds a different way to clarify the question. He has also been extremely flexible about scheduling. I highly recommend Keith as a GRE tutor.

Marie, 18 lessons with Keith

Knowledgeable Tutor

Covered a lot of ground in preparation for a geometry quiz. Topics included the following: definition of inductive and deductive reasoning; conditional statements; the converse; using a counterexample to disprove something; how to make both inductive and deductive arguments. Included SAT math problems. Keith left my son feeling well-prepared for the quiz. Thanks Keith!

Knowledgeable, flexible, and encouraging tutor

Keith has tutored my two high school aged sons in algebra, geometry, precalculus, trigonometry, and math SAT prep. Whatever the subject, Keith does an amazing job of increasing my sons' understanding and confidence in the topic. His clear explanations make sense to them and his encouraging manner helps them to believe in their abilities. Keith is very flexible and makes time for my sons, even when immediate needs arise. On more than one occasion, my sons have worked with Keith on material that they found challenging and received an A on a test the next day!

Detail oriented tutor

Keith took the time out to review my answers to previous practice sets and even provided me with additional study resources. He took his time to assess my skillset/knowledge level and I know that I will reach my desired scores with his guidance. I highly recommend him!!

Knows his stuff!

Keith is a friendly teacher who knows his SAT materials inside and out. My daughter feels confident she will do very well on the SAT! She is a good student, but math is not easy for her Keith was able to communicate many strategies that made sense to her. We are very happy with her 10 week experience.

Great Tutor

Keith tutored me for the Praxis-Core Math exam. Passing this test seemed impossible to me after four attempts. With just five lessons I passed the test and my score went from a 134 to a 150. He was always early to our sessions and had materials for me to use. He was so knowledgeable and explained math that I struggled with in a way I finally understood. I would strongly recommend Keith for anyone who struggles with Math like I did.
