I have been teaching and marketing for over 10 years. During that time, I have honed my speaking ability, and I have lectured all across the country. In fact, I have lectured at 7 different universities in Texas, in addition to the Duke University School of Law and the University of Minneapolis Law School. I have also conducted poster presentations of my science research, and I taught at several public high schools in Texas. I understand how to entertain and educate a crowd, and I am a good skills coach. I worked for 10 years in the test prep industry helping people prepare for stressful events, so I also understand the psychology of performance anxiety.

Chess

I have been playing chess since I was 8 years old. My dad and I used to play in the evenings, and I fondly remember the first time I beat him. In college, I honed my chess skills as a member of the Internet Chess Club. I logged hundreds of hours of play, and my rating was in the 1600s. I am a huge fan of Yasser Seirawan's books, which I use to review with my students.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient

Met Mr. Keith via Wyzant to prepare me for the forthcoming Texas Bar exam. Right from our first meeting, he set up a brilliant schedule which works very well for me. During our meetings, he breaks the law and/or questions down to the level at which I can understand and remember them. I will HIGHLY recommend Mr. Keith to anyone who is in need of a serious-minded tutor who cares enough for the success of the student. God bless you, Mr. Keith!

Keith is very knowledgeable in writing.

He has taught me so much throughout our tutoring sessions. He has taught me MLA and APA styles of writing. Since he has tutored me my grades are better. I make less writing errors since I have worked with Keith. He makes me feel very comfortable. I enjoy my sessions with him. I am learning so much about writing. I appreciate his help.

Great Tutor

Keith is really helpful in providing strategies that apply to specific questions. He is also very nice so even if you get many questions incorrect (as I did), he does not make you feel like you are any lesser because of it. Keith is a great tutor and is very flexible in terms of what you need out of a lesson.

Explains subject well

Keith is tutoring me in chemistry. He is extremely knowledgeable and explains concepts in an easy to understand manner. He knows what typically trips up students, and is easy to work through problem areas with.

Cindy, 4 lessons with Keith

All business, knows the LSAT up and down, professional and personal.

I wanted a second pair of eyes on my LSAT prep methods and I couldn't have found a better one. He not only has personal experience taking the LSAT, he has years of experience teaching it. He can talk about logic game strategies as easily as long-term difficulty trends and the particulars of the admission process. Highly recommend.

Excellent

Keith is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent tutor. Highly recommend! He is very well versed in upper level biology courses and a great help! A 5 star tutor

Sabrina, 6 lessons with Keith

Patient and focused

My son had an excellent session with Keith. He said "he felt smarter just by being in the same room with him." Keith focused on the needs of the student and allowed him to work through the problems with his guidance as opposed to doing the work for him. Very thankful.

Tina, 11 lessons with Keith

Can teach anyone how to score higher in their exams.

Great tutor I was very impressed! After one session and Keith was able to teach me how to guide my learning progress towards a passing score. He is very professional and understanding of the multitude of learning styles. I am going to recommend his tutoring to everyone in my circle of family and friends.

Judith, 1 lesson with Keith

Keith is amazing! Hands down the best tutor my son has ever had.

My son had a missing assignment and was super stressed over the fact that he understood nothing he was to be doing. Not only did they get the assignment completed by my son told me it was awesome how he now understands exactly what his school teacher was asking him for, but couldn't convey it in a way that made any sense to him. Keith did this for Colton. We will continue using this great tutor!!
