“**Great Tutor!**”

Hello! My name is Kelsey, and I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in mechanical engineering. Most recently, I am working as an aviation mechanic! I was home-schooled, and I love to learn and teach! It is a great joy to be able to help a student acquire enthusiasm for learning new things. I have a year of experience in

Kelsey did a great job of assessing my child's areas of weakness and the best way to guide him. He was quick to say, "You can stop looking, mom...she is the one!" Thanks, Kelsey!

Kelsey is awesome! She taught me a new strategy for solving problems, something that will help me through every problem I encounter. She's a very understanding person, and really wants me to do well and succeed!

I notified Kelsey because my daughter's had a test the next day. Kelsey couldn't meet face-to-face but was able to assist my daughter via skype. I am grateful that she went the extra mile to assist on a same day notice. Kelsey is also very responsive and gets back to you ASAP.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Algebra 1 is the study of how variables change in reference to other variables and how polynomial graphs behave. Learning the formulas in an algebra course is not necessarily the most important goal. The most important ability that can be acquired from any algebra course is the skill to take the knowledge, (formulas), learned and apply them to all problems, standard or modified, more complex problems; this is the capability to look at a problem from all sides and solve it the easiest way. The most important thing to learn in algebra is to be able to write down given information, think over every possibility, and adapt to new problems.

I took Differential Equations at Georgia Southern University and earned an A. Since then, I have used Differential Equations in my System Dynamics and Controls engineering class. In this class, I gained much practice with taking Laplace transforms, taking inverse Laplace transforms, and dealing with state space variables.

Elementary math teaches students to manipulate numbers by counting, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. This subject also provides a brief introduction to algebra (dealing with unknown variables) and cost/profit analysis.

I took linear algebra at Georgia Southern University and earned an A. Since then, I have used linear algebra in several of my engineering classes. More specifically, I have used matrix algebra, determinant calculations, and other important linear algebra skills in my classes.

Physics is the study of the force on an object. These forces can be caused by gravity, electricity, magnetism, drag, friction, etc. How much energy an object has is also studied in physics; energy comes in different forms, such as heat energy, potential energy, and kinetic energy. While solving problems in physics, students learn about an object's position, velocity, acceleration, momentum, and many other things. Equilibrium of the forces and moments on an object is also studied. Torque and moments of inertia are studied as well. Later in physics, students also learn about electric and magnetic forces and how these forces manipulate objects. Within this field of physics, electronic circuits, magnets, and light waves/particles are studied.

This course teaches a student about reading comprehension. A student learns how to read a piece of writing, analyze it, and deduce what the author was trying to portray, describe, or argue. Reading teaches a student to discover the author's intentions.

While at East Georgia College, I was considered exempt from the Regents exam because of my SAT scores. Although I have not taken the exam specifically, I have received A's in all classes that apply to sections on the Regents exam, such as math, history, science, chemistry, and physics. Also, I have tutored math and writing for other similar standardized tests.

I took a course called "How to become a superstar student" that taught me how to study in college. I have also learned study methods that work when preparing for tests in college. I plan to use the knowledge and experience that I have gained in college to prepare kids for proactive, college studying. This will include: learning to read ahead at least one week so as to be prepared to ask questions in class when the subject is taught, comparing book notes and class notes to find similarities, making a list of questions as you are reading so as to make your reading the most productive, etc.

I have taken private tennis lessons for several years. I have played in a few tournaments, singles and doubles. I periodically play now. I have the necessary equipment for teaching and drilling, a basket of over 50 tennis balls. I have volunteered teaching kids in tennis camp.
