Keith B.--Test Prep, ESL, History, and Math
I'm an experienced teacher who loves helping students achieve their educational goals. I have a B.A. (History; Math), two M.A.'s (European History; History of Science, Medicine, & Technology), and a wide range of teaching: taught many different college history courses; high school math; junior high math and science; ESL in Taiwan; chess. Also have good standardized test scores (e.g., GRE 790V, 780M, 720A; "competitive" score on the NSA's Professional Qualifications...
I'm an experienced teacher who loves helping students achieve their educational goals. I have a B.A. (History; Math), two M.A.'s (European History; History of Science, Medicine, & Technology), and a wide range of teaching: taught many different college history courses; high school math; junior high math and science; ESL in Taiwan; chess. Also have good standardized test scores (e.g., GRE 790V, 780M, 720A; "competitive" score on the NSA's Professional Qualifications Test) and several years teaching SAT, GRE, and GMAT for a national test prep company. I think learning should be fun as well as productive. A sense of humor is an asset in any endeavor, including education.
Keith hasn’t set a schedule.
Keith tutored me for 3 months before taking the GMAT, helping me to score a 730 and finish in the 96th percentile of all test takers. During this time, Keith demonstrated impressive knowledge of both Math and Verbal concepts and helped me to greatly improve upon my weak areas. Keith not only helped me to learn core competencies for this exam, but also provided helpful test-taking strategy advice. As the exam neared he also assisted me in refining my critical thinking skills in an effort to prepare for the Analytical Writing portion of the exam. Most importantly, aside from being an impressive teacher of the subject material, my tutoring experience was excellent because Keith was always on time (generally early!), always prepared, always flexible and ready to adjust to what I specifically wanted to accomplish with each tutoring session, and extremely patient in coaching me along. I strongly recommend this tutor to anyone looking for assistance in taking a standardized test, or looking to strengthen his/her understanding of a specific subject.Evan, 5 lessons with Keith
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!Karla, 13 lessons with Keith
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
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!Liz, 24 lessons with 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!Carolyn, 34 lessons with Keith
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!!Garland, 3 lessons with Keith
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.Wendy, 11 lessons with Keith

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.Kelsey, 5 lessons with Keith
