Reviews

Keith has provided excellent strategies for SAT/math prep - I would highly recommend him. He has made himself available on short notice. He is very patient and knowledgeable.

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!

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.

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!

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 O. from Barrington, RI
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 C. from San Diego, CA
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 K. from Barrington, RI

- Katherine M. from Providence, RI
Highly recommend Keith!! He was wonderful with my daughter and she can't wait until next lesson!!! He knows how to teach children and give the confidence needed for learning! My daughter wants him to tutor her every night!!!
- Elizabeth G. from Portsmouth, RI
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 H. from Cranston, RI
Keith really validated my feelings of frustration, helped me learn new strategies and formulas, and boosted my confidence so much! Looking forward to our next session!
- Liza B. from Newport, RI
Keith helped me raise my verbal and writing score on the GRE. I improved 10 points on my verbal reasoning. I went from 143 to 153 with just 3 sessions and improved from a 3.5 to 4.0 on the writing section. Keith was always early and even extended our sessions to ensure I understood the material being taught. He was so patient when going through the different questions with me and provided several strategies to help me perform better. Keith went the extra mile and it was evident that he prepared himself for each session and spent a lot of time outside of our sessions researching and picking up books for me. He also lent me the GRE book and another book that practiced math problems. Keith truly cares about his students and them doing well. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone who needs a tutor. He is reliable, prompt, and is great at teaching!
- Lauren A. from North Kingstown, RI
Keith is extremely patient, and has done a great job explaining difficult geometry concepts to my daughter. He certainly has a profound understanding on the subject. Easy to communicate and work with. I really appreciate his efforts. Thank you, Keith!
- Alex W. from Barrington, RI
Keith was very helpful for my military ASVAB tutoring and helped me to get a near perfect score. I forgot many of the basics and Keith provided many easy techniques to solving complicated fractions, geometry, etc. He was always on time for the sessions and willing to re schedule as needed. I would recommend Keith to anyone especially struggling with math. He also provided multiple quick ways of solving certain problems, giving you the option to choose your preferred method.
- Annapurna B. from Franklin Lakes, NJ
Just getting started on mastering portions of the LSAT. happy to have came across and chose Keith. I am a slow learner and appreciate the fact that Keith is attentive and patient!
- Wande D. from Providence, RI
Keith was instrumental in my GMAT prep. While we focused on quant, he also helped me with verbal, and my total score rose from a 620 to a 720. He was extremely knowledgeable and tailored his tutoring to the way I learned. I am now applying to schools I didn't know I had a chance at. I could not have done it without Keith. He's the BEST!
- Mike B. from Providence, RI
We hired Keith to help my daughter prepare for the SSAT. I have hired many tutors over the years and Keith was by FAR the best! He responds to communication very quickly and makes it very easy to schedule appointments. He is extremely knowledgable and has a wonderful way of teaching his students, not only content but also tips and tricks for testing. After each meeting he provided a very thorough summary of what they covered and reiterated particular strategies that my daughter should review. He offered to meet us at Barnes and Noble close to our home which was so convenient. Keith is a fabulous teacher and we are so lucky to have found him! Definitely will use him again if the need arises.

My daughter recently met with Keith to prepare for her ACT exam. She said that their 2 hour sessions flew by and that Keith gave her many tools to solve the ACT problems. He boosted her confidence by providing her with positive feedback when she was right as well as strategies for her to use when the problems became more difficult. Her time spent with Keith exceeded our expectations. Her ACT scores placed her in the 98% nationally after her sessions with Keith. I highly recommend him for anyone preparing for their ACTs or SATs.

Keith has been a great tutor for my son, who is taking a very challenging Honors Geometry class. He has gone to great lengths in requesting to have the material and any difficult problems ahead of time. He took the time and effort to procure the textbook my son was using from the library so he can follow what was being taught in class. He accurately has identified the thought process towards approaching problems that have been an obstacle for my son's understanding of the material. I recommend his service without any hesitation.

I write as a parent about Keith's talents and capacities. Our daughter had struggled during the early part of this academic year with Algebra 2. She is a bright and conscientious girl, but became overwhelmed by the extraordinarily fast pace of the classroom. None of her academic needs were being met. We called Keith and he responded immediately. He conducted an analysis of her core mathematical skills and determined that she had an enormous capacity and skill that was being frustrated. Keith determined an academic pace that was reasonable for her, reviewed her previous learning, addressed and helped to mediate her deficits, and placed her on a pathway to success. Our daughter's grades rose from a C- level to an A level shortly after the tutoring commenced. We have Keith to thank for that. Keith has all of the qualities that a parent wants and needs in an educator: He is kind, thoughtful, infinitely patient, courteous, thoughtful, well read, and a strong achiever himself. We recommend him highly and without reservation. Thank you Keith!
