My name is Kelly and I'm a Senior majoring in English at Southeastern Louisiana University. I've been on the University's Dean's list for several semesters. I have years of tutoring experience ranging from Elementary students to Early college years. My passion has always led me to the written and spoken word. I can assist with Grammar, Reading Comprehension and Writing. As formatting and presentation goes hand in hand with writing, I also offer aid with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint.

The English language has always appealed to me as a tool. It introduced me to new worlds, broadened my understanding of life and inspired me endlessly. However, it can be seen as a class to pass, or a struggle to survive. Yet, a distaste for Reading, Writing, Literature and Grammar cannot diminish the importance of the tool. That idea encourages me the most. I hope to instill an understanding for English and Literature that will, in time, become natural.

If your children are struggling, or if you want them to have an edge in school, don't hesitate to contact me.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

My goal as an English tutor isn't to teach. Much of the information I discuss with a student is something they've already been given. I bridge the gap between what they were taught, and what they understand. Lastly, I show them how to learn for themselves.

“Van-dal-ized,” I pronounced. “What does that mean?” “To destroy,” I said. Yet, that wasn’t quite true. I couldn’t possibly send my student into the world with a one dimensional understanding of her new word. She was perfectly capable of understanding the complex meaning of vandalism, if I explained it properly. The worst thing I could do as her tutor would be to allow vandalize... read more
