To register, please click “Get a Registration Form” below, print the form and mail it in with your deposit.

 

 

Before you register…

 

1.  Follow the link above to see the sample course syllabus, especially the homework.  To get results, we need our students to do the work.  You’ll notice that we do not offer any guarantee.  We only control part of the equation.  Make sure that your son or daughter really wants to do this and understands the work required.

 

2. Please check your calendar.   As part of our commitment to small classes, we cannot allow students to attend sections other than the one in which they are enrolled (unless another student wants to switch places with you for that session).   

       

3.  Finally, in our small classes we require the cooperation and active participation of EVERY student.  Any student who is disruptive will be asked to leave the course and a prorated refund will be issued.  (We’ve NEVER had to do this!)

Keller & White in the Summer!

Preparing for the August 26th SAT

 

If it fits your schedule, this is the ideal time to prepare.  With no other school work to worry about, you can really concentrate on this important project.

 

If you are a rising senior, you have a VERY busy fall ahead of you with school work and college applications. And if you are a rising junior, this is a chance to get ahead of the game.

 

We are going to offer an evening class that will meet mostly on Tuesdays with two Thursday classes as well.  The classes meet from 6 pm to 9 pm.

 

Session

Meeting Time

Tuesday, July 18, 6 pm – 9pm

Tuesday, August 22, 6 pm – 9pm

 

In addition, as you can see in the chart, there will be two optional Sunday morning Extra-help sessions. These are primarily to help students catch up if they miss a class, but anyone is welcome to stop in for more assistance.  (But don’t feel that you have to wait for those sessions – we are always a phone call or email away!)

 

If the evening session fills, we will also run a morning class that will meet from 9 am to noon on those same days.  You can indicate if you would prefer that time when you register.  But that class will only run as needed.

 

 

Tuition: Summer Discount!

 

The tuition for this class will be $1200, which is a $200 discount from our usual course fee.  This still includes all books and materials.

 

A deposit of $500 is due when you register and the balance is due on the first day of the course.

 

And Sibling Discounts!  (New this Summer)

 

If this is your second child to take our class, we are glad to have you back and happy to give you a 10% discount. This counts for twins too!

 

If this is your third child with us, the discount is 20%.

 

If it’s your fourth (and yes, some families keep sending them!) the discount is 30%.

 

For anything more than four, give us a call.

NEW THIS SUMMER:  RUNNING START PROGRAMS

 

Mr. Keller will be offering three programs in August, each designed to wake up that summer brain and provide a smoother entry into the school year.  And for you rising seniors, Mrs. Keller will be offering a one-session introduction to the college essay.

 

Running Start College Essay – for Rising Seniors

 

Get an early start on your college application essays! Mrs. Keller is an editor and former English teacher who’s helped many high school and college students improve their writing.

In this one-day class we’ll discuss the Common Application writing prompts and college-specific short essays. We’ll review some successful college essays, learn about pitfalls to avoid, and cover a few of the most common grammar and writing errors. To get the most out of this class, come prepared with a few ideas for your college essay topic. But if you don’t have any ideas yet, don’t worry—we’ll also be talking about how to find them! 

The class will be held on Sunday, August 6th from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.  The tuition is $75.  To get a registration form, please click here:

 

Note to former Keller & White Students:  We will be happy to have you take this program at no charge!  But you do still have to send in a registration form.  The class is limited to 12 students but will be repeated later in the summer if there is sufficient interest.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to email Mrs. Keller at dcmkeller@gmail.com.

 

Also, if you are curious, the Common Application essay prompts for the coming year are available here:  https://www.commonapp.org/whats-appening/application-updates/common-application-announces-2017-2018-essay-prompts

 

 

Running Start Algebra -- For Middle School Students

 

This program will focus on mathematical functions and the language of algebra.  The course will introduce the first two units of Mr. Keller’s algebra book, Advanced Math for Young Students, which will be provided to each student. 

 

The course will meet for six 90-minute sessions, as shown below.  The tuition is $375 which includes the textbook and all materials.

 

There will be a maximum of 12 students in the class.

 

To register, please print the form here and mail it in with your tuition.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at pckeller@satgameplan.com or call me at 732 530 3471.

 

 

Running Start Physics – For High School Students

 

This program will introduce the topics typically covered in the first months of a high school physics class: linear motion, Newton’s Laws, and vectors.  The course will use a combination of handouts, posts from Mr. Keller’s math blog, and on-line resources. 

 

The goal is to provide a smoother start to the school year and to alert students to on-line resources that can help them throughout the year.

 

The course will meet for six 90-minute sessions, as shown below.  The tuition is $525 which includes all course materials.

 

There will be a maximum of 12 students in the class.

 

Note for Holmdel Students:  By the time the course begins, I should have my class lists for the coming year.  If you are going to be my student, then unfortunately you cannot take this class.  You will just have to wait until September J

 

To register, please print the form here and mail it in with your tuition.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at pckeller@satgameplan.com or call me at 732 530 3471.

 

 

Running Start Calculus – for High School Students and College-Bound Freshman

 

This program is based on the summer reading materials that I developed for my AP Physics students who needed a fast overview of the first months of a typical calculus class.  If you are heading into your first year of calculus, this program will show you what to expect and help you understand where the course is heading.

 

Topics covered: why we care about limits, what are “derivatives” and what do we use them for, the important derivative formulas, combining functions, the chain rule, and an introduction to optimization.  In addition, we will review the key ideas from Precalculus that are essential for continued math success.  For that reason, all students will also receive a copy of Advanced Math for Young Students when they sign up for the class.

 

The course will meet for six 90-minute sessions, as shown below.  The tuition is $525 which includes all course materials.

 

There will be a maximum of 12 students in the class.

 

Note for Holmdel Students:  By the time the course begins, I should have my class lists for the coming year.  If you are going to be my student, then unfortunately you cannot take this class even though it is math and not physics!

 

To register, please print the form here and mail it in with your tuition.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at pckeller@satgameplan.com or call me at 732 530 3471.
