Bio

Hello there!

My name is Keely, and I'm a science nerd, a writer, and a tutor! Nice to meet you!

I've been teaching science and math on and off for over a decade. After years of helping my younger siblings with their homework, I started volunteering to tutor classmates in my chemistry class in high school. In college at Purdue University, I tutored every chance I got--as a drop-in tutor for the Biology Department and the local Women in Science chapter, and privately through the Athletic...

Hello there!

My name is Keely, and I'm a science nerd, a writer, and a tutor! Nice to meet you!

I've been teaching science and math on and off for over a decade. After years of helping my younger siblings with their homework, I started volunteering to tutor classmates in my chemistry class in high school. In college at Purdue University, I tutored every chance I got--as a drop-in tutor for the Biology Department and the local Women in Science chapter, and privately through the Athletic Department (I taught a few athletes organic chem!) and several other campus programs.

After college, I went straight into a PhD program at UCLA, studying biology with a focus on parasitology. I learned a ton, met some amazing fellow science nerds, and really enjoyed working as a teachers assistant for Microbiology and Parasitology courses, but I decided that academic research wasn't the career for me, and I left with a Master's degree in the Spring of 2014.

Since then, I've worked for lots of tutoring and education companies, helping students directly and writing curriculum. I particularly love helping students overcome their difficulties with math and science and with test taking, and helping students with learning differences.

I was recently accepted as an Encorps 2017 fellow, which means I have a whole team of awesome people helping me through teacher certification in California. I'm going to be a secondary science teacher, applying for credentialling programs to begin in fall 2017. In the meantime I'm tutoring for a living, guest teaching with Encorps, and playing with chemistry in my backyard (I handdye things -- shibori + tie dye).

In addition to working privately with Wyzant, I work with a test prep tutoring company providing online test-prep tutoring. I work primarily with students studying for the ACT, and typically see improvement in all test areas. The english section is a bit of a drag...lots of grammar rules to brush up on!... but I do my best to make it fun.

ACT Reading

In addition to working privately with Wyzant, I work with a test prep tutoring company providing online test-prep tutoring. I work primarily with students studying for the ACT, and have had success raising scores in all test sections. The reading section in particular is very tightly timed, so I work with students to come up with reading strategies to allow them to skim effectively. With a little practice and good strategy, most students can learn to complete the entire section in the allotted time.

Biology,

Biology

I majored in microbiology in college, and I went to grad school for it. It is my passion and my specialty. I have a particular love for parasitology, as that was what I researched in graduate school.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I started tutoring chemistry at the same time as I first started taking it...as a sophomore in high school. Our teacher was very tough and many of my friends were failing. I started organizing study groups and tutoring friends one-on-one, and we all passed! I did the same in AP and college chemistry courses, eventually serving as an official departmental tutor in college.

In addition to working privately with Wyzant, I work with a test prep tutoring company providing online test-prep tutoring. I work primarily with students studying for the ACT, and have been successful in raising student's math scores. Typically students either struggle with forgotten or weak math skills, or with the timed format of the test. I help students brush up on their math skills and gain comfort and speed for the test itself.

Organic Chemistry

I have a microbiology degree from Purdue University, where I regularly tutored Organic Chemistry. I initially struggled with organic chemistry myself, and was able to overcome it by working with a patient and enthusiastic tutor who helped me stick things out until it "clicked". Now I enjoy doing the same for other students.
