Reading Tutoring For Elementary Students

fifth grade students as a teacher, tutor, parent coach, youth leader, educational comedian and camp counselor. When working with young students, Keith does "voices' and "characters" to keep them engaged. After the initial consultation, your child will want to have Keith come over.
In Home Tutoring makes students Happy!
Students are more comfortable sitting at their kitchen or dining room table because they are in familiar surroundings. Keith insists that a parent, relative, or guardian is always present and in the area of the home Keith is working in. The parent can overhear all the rhymes, songs, chants and techniques he uses. And this is important: Keith turns the parents into reading tutors themselves. If a parent drops off their child at a traditional tutoring location, they don't actually learn how to teach their child to read. At the end of each session, Keith will teach the parents why he is doing what he is doing.
Working With Students that Have ADHD, Dyslexia, or CAPD
Keith is comfortable working with students that have ADHD, Dylsexia and CAPD (Central Audio Processing Disorder). As a matter of fact, Keith has all three himself. Keith stayed back in third grade because he could not read.

Your child will find this uplifting, Keith can bend down, look him in the eye and say, "I stayed back in third grade and could not read - now I speed read."
