About Kelly

I have six years of teaching experience. I am a certified teacher and I have earned my Bachelor's Degree from UConn, and my Master's Degree from Southern CT State University. For six years, I was a Master Teacher at a preschool in CT. At that point, I went back to earn my Special Ed certification for PreK and Kindergarten and my regular education certification 1st-3rd grade. I am very hardworking and personable. I enjoy spending time with children and breaking down lessons and materials to ensure that they understand important concepts. For the past year, I have been working as a substitute teacher within the Danbury School District.

As well as teaching early childhood math for six years, I had the opportunity to learn all about elementary math strategies and concepts from my mentor during my student teaching experience. While working as a teacher substitute, I have implemented a variety of math lessons and have gained much experience in being able to differentiate the lessons for a variety of learners. I am well-trained in the Common Core style of math and I have incredible patience for struggling learners, as well as for students who 'just want to get ahead'.

I am trained in elementary literacy/English programs and early childhood emergent literacy programs. Most recently, I have been trained in Writer's and Reader's Workshop Programs. I am excellent at proofreading and teaching students how to develop different types of writing samples. I am trained in many reading strategies and I am very knowledgeable of age-appropriate sight words and vocabulary for elementary students.

Thank you very much for checking out my profile. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions about my qualifications. I am a devoted educational professional and I can't wait to work with your student and give them confidence and educational success!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)
