About Kelly

What do I like about tutoring? I found out by working at Mohave Community College (MCC) as a tutor! At MCC I tutored a group of math students, explained the material in a biology class, and edited papers.

For example, I polished a microbiology research paper for a fellow classmate who ended up obtaining an A on it though she started out with a lower grade from her written draft. Also, I helped a student comprehend the poetic concepts and imagery involved in an English poem she presented to me.

In the past, I have helped students in their concepts of microbiology, chemistry, English, and math. I held study sessions and answered questions in regards to them.

I am on the dean's list and have completed college coursework with a 4.0 GPA. I hold an associate's degree at Kirkwood with additional courses towards a bachelor's.

I am familiar with the required coursework to get into nursing school. I have obtained all A's in the required courses for it. This includes human anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, microbiology, math, chemistry, etc.

I explain concepts well, have students furnish their understanding of material out loud and in written form depending on their learning style. I cater towards the learning styles of each student. Some are visual learners, tactile, auditory, etc. I am willing to come up with ways to teach things to accommodate these individuals based on resources available.

I know some Spanish and have taken it both at the high school level for four years, and two semesters of it in a community college. I am willing to do some translation or assistance in interpretation between Spanish and English. While most of the subjects I tutor require sitting at a desk, I do teach an outdoor activity.

I do get outside and hit the tennis courts. I am a tennis player, and I have played since I was seven or eight years old. I hit my first tennis serve in second grade. I made varsity tennis during all four years in high school. I placed second in the Iowa Summer Olympics Games in the 18 years old and under Girls Singles Bracket and won some other tennis trophies.

I would like to teach tennis to anyone who wants to learn, improve, etc. I do not charge the same rate as tennis coach pros do which is typically higher and tends to be not affordable for some out there. As not being a previous ranked tennis pro in the circuits, I offer a fair reasonable lesson fee.

Have an enlightening day folks,

Kelly

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.

Ballet

I've taken ballet since I was 6-7 years old. I have attended Minnesota's Ballet Twin Cities Dance Workshop. I've attended plenty of dance work shops. And I have been a dance teacher's assistant as well in ballet. I enjoy teaching basic ballet and beginner level as well as jazz dance routines. I am familiar with yoga, pilates, etc. And have read up on numerous fitness magazines and have extensive knowledge on exercises to enhance, strengthen, and tone the body.

English

I have tutored and proofread papers for this course. I also proofread a research paper for Microbiology. I was a tutor at Mohave Community College as my badge indicates on my photo gallery.

Fitness

I have taken several dance classes aimed at toning, stretching, and conditioning the body. Also, I have done yoga moves for years. I know so many exercise routines that target specific areas of the body.

I have danced, teacher assisted, played tennis, volleyball, and lifted weights. Refer to the photo of my dance medal. I've done the Jillian Michaels work out.

Linear Algebra

I have tutored algebra at Mohave Community College and instructed students on how to do linear algebra equations. I taught what is the slope (m) and how it effects the graph of the equation. y=mx+b


Also, in high school I was in advanced algebra classes and in general advanced math courses. I got straight A's and was in math counts when in elementary school

At Iowa State University I was in calculus for biology majors as well. I had to do some linear equations as models of scientific data.

Spanish

Hola! Como estas?

I am good and want to mention that I have taken four years of Spanish in high school, and two semesters of it in college. My strong suit is teaching the written part of the translation process and reading comprehension as well. I can also converse well and hold my own in a Spanish conversation.

TEAS

I passed the TEAS at Mohave Community College. I was told I scored the highest that they have seen when I finished the test. I was also a tutor at MCC.

Tennis

I've played varsity tennis all four years in high school. I've played local tennis tournaments and won. I played in the Iowa Summer Olympics Games and placed second in Singles for Women 18 years and Under. I love the sport and have lots of insight in the lifelong game of tennis.

Writing

I have a background of writing. I wrote for the MOPS Newsletter and edited it as well. I was also a English tutor at Mohave Community College. I helped individuals write better.
