About Keith


Bio

Hello! I am a math tutor currently enrolled in a Ph.D program at the University of Vermont's college of engineering and mathematical sciences. I plan on being a professor of mathematics one day, so suffice it to say that I have a real passion for teaching math. I have been in love with the subject since I was a little kid, and know what it is like to have to work to truly understand the topic.

Hello! I am a math tutor currently enrolled in a Ph.D program at the University of Vermont's college of engineering and mathematical sciences. I plan on being a professor of mathematics one day, so suffice it to say that I have a real passion for teaching math. I have been in love with the subject since I was a little kid, and know what it is like to have to work to truly understand the topic.

My biggest strength is my ability to connect with anybody, and it is my personal philosophy that the largest portion of learning is being able to connect with the teacher. Where a K-12 (and beyond!) student may be frustrated with their math teacher, that same student will have a lot less frustration when they are learning with a current student who still recognizes and understands the struggles of learning math.

Where many math tutors fail is coming to every single student with the same approach, using a one-size-fits-all teaching method. I set myself apart by personalizing my teaching to the student. My tutoring is very flexible to accommodate for difficulties in certain topics, while still keeping up the proper pace to excel in tests and other class work. I gained this through years of tutoring my peers in high school and college, finding that we were really able to progress when I was able to connect with the student.

In case you're interested, my personal favorite subjects are calculus, precalculus, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, probability, and finite math! I also really enjoy tutoring for tests like the ACT, SAT, PSAT, PERT, and other standardized tests of that nature.

I encourage any questions or inquiries into what my tutoring would look like for you or your child. I am very easy to get a hold of, and usually respond within an hour or two, so please do not hesitate to get in contact with me. Thanks!

Subjects

Homeschool

Calculus,

Calculus

I received a 5/5 on both the calculus AB and BC AP tests. I have experience with multivariable calculus.
Geometry,

Geometry

Not only have I taken middle/high school geometry, but I also took the college level geometry class, which covers more than enough to satisfy teaching a course in Euclidean (middle/high-school-level) geometry.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I received a 5/5 on both the AB and BC sections of the AP calculus exams, and I also took multivariable calculus in undergrad.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I took the ACT rather than the SAT, so scores for myself do not exist. However, I did take both of the SAT math subject tests, and scored in the 94th percentile on the level 1 test, which would have the material closest to what you would need for the general test.
Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Prealgebra

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I received a 35 on the math section of the ACT. I mean, it may not be the absolute top score, but it is literally the next best thing!

Finite Math,

Finite Math

My own personal study is in the field of finite mathematics. I am currently enrolled in my PhD program in the field of combinatorics, which is basically exactly what a finite mathematician gets their PhD in.

Keith was very knowledgeable

Keith was very helpful in teaching my daughter Finite. He helped grasp the ideas and prepare her for an upcoming test. He was very knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to call upon him again.

Jacquie, 1 lesson with Keith

excellent teacher for my boys

Keith had a great connection with my kids. My boys really connected as he challenged them in their math studies. They enjoyed their lesson and look forward to the next ones. I highly recommend Keith as a tutor as he is excited about teaching!

Antoinette, 13 lessons with Keith

Exceptional, knowledgeable, and patient

Under Keith’s tutelage, my daughter is more confident with math. He has gone above and beyond my expectations of a tutor. If my daughter understands her homework, Keith takes her to the next level of the unit that she is learning. In addition, he always gives her extra worksheets to strengthen her skills.

Extremely Knowledgeable & Astute

Keith tutored my daughter in AP Calculus BC. He is a wonderful and patient tutor. She was very impressed in his teaching methods. He explains concepts very well and takes the time to make sure my daughter understood the material. He came to the tutoring session very well prepared. I would highly recommend Keith!

A world of difference

My daughter had straight A’s last year with an excellent teacher, but wasn’t so fortunate this year. Keith was so good explaining the material, that she’s back on track. Thank you Keith! You’re the best.
