About Kelly

I acquired my associates degree in Education in 2011, and immediately began working toward my bachelors degree. I took a break a year and half ago to care for my children and am going back to school in the summer to complete my degree. I have a minor in reading and over time have found that one on one reading instruction is something that I am impassioned by.

I have a wide range of experience tutoring, whether it be, a student who needs a wide range of subjects and over all help in school, to just doing reading, or math. I have also been instructed in assessment and administered assessments to students for the purpose of targeting specific areas of struggle. I have tutored both in the confines of my university courses and independently. Overall my philosophy is dictated by my knowledge of the student, many decisions I make are based on what I learn of the student and using their strengths and interests to build on weaknesses.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have completed the basic prerequisites of special education. I have a child who is autistic and struggled with ADHD behaviors so I have also taken multiple parenting classes on behavioral interventions in the past 5 years, while working with occupational therapists, counselors and other professionals to develop a wide range of skills.

Elementary Math

I am an elementary education major. I will be student teaching next fall. I passed my Praxis test which is a test necessary to display some knowledge of content and includes mathematics.

Elementary Science

I have completed my Associates Degree in elementary education as well as the better part of my bachelors degree which I am still working toward currently. This includes courses in instructing elementary science.

English

Associates in elementary education

Grammar

Grammar is one of my strongest areas. Generally it is incorporated in other subjects and inherent in the way that i explain concepts but I am sure I could competently teach grammar explicitly.

Literature

I am widely read. I enjoy reading and exposing others to great books. Having a minor in reading has lead me to seek out many great books to use for specific reasons. I would like to believe I am able to draw out a students interest and excitement by guiding them to books that are engaging to them.
