Hello! I have 15 years of teaching experience in the classroom and have been tutoring now since January of 2012. I have a true passion for teaching! I have taught in the parochial, private, and public schools. I taught at Assumption Catholic School from 1997-2004, English and Reading to 6th-12th grade ESE students at The Broach School from 2004-2008, and Intensive Reading to 11th and 12th graders at Andrew Jackson High School (public inner city urban in Duval County) from 2010-2011. I have also conducted FCAT, ACT, and SAT prep, as well as study skills in the summer months when students don't have school work. While in the classroom my average student came up 3 grade levels in a year in reading comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, spelling, and language mechanics. My certification was in English 6-12 while in the classroom. I am certified in many subject areas now through WyzAnt and if you check out my profile by subject area you can see where my expertise lies and match it with your current needs.
I have done extensive private tutoring as well with college students, some of whom are in an MBA program at JU and two of whom are working on their Master's in Education at UNF. I have raised three children of my own, now in their 20's and 30's, and all three went to college after graduating from Bishop Kenny High School.
My availability depends on my schedule at any one time and can be discussed with you after you set up your account with WyzAnt. I will tutor in your home, provided a parent is present if you or your child are under 18, and also at the various local libraries.
I look forward to helping you or your child succeed in school and working closely with you to achieve success! School was never meant to be a struggle; an effort yes, but not a struggle! Best regards, Kelly H.
