Mr. Keith was one of the tutors who prepared
Helen for college. He was from Cambridge. He
taught Algebra, Geometry, Greek and Latin to
Helen. He was a good mathematician. He explained Helen what she did not
understand. His instructions were
interpreted by Miss Sullivan.

Mr Keith had it all planned.He lived next door to Helen and her family and Helen was very dear to him.Mr Keith was a teacher in the local school and had given up his life to teach.He knew Helen had a keen interest...a fire to learn.Mr Keith wanted to keep that burning. Helen would sleep during the day and would sit idle in the nights..Mr Keith would go at nights to read her lessons...explain her e=mc2..There was anything he could do to keep her fire burning.
