About Kelly

I have been teaching in the same CT public school since 2000--mainly 6th grade math, but I have also taught 5th grade early on in my career.

I have been teaching 6th grade math since 2005 in a shoreline school which follows the Common Core. I have worked and taught through the CC since it's early beginnings, and I see how many students struggle.

I love being able to take myself out of the over-sized, fast-paced classroom and into a smaller environment. Most students benefit from 1on1 teaching when they are struggling. Having the math experience I do, and the extra time to assist, working 1 on 1 is a pleasant change of pace.

Since I have been teacher for a while now, I had the experience of teaching math using the CMTesting, as well as the newly implemented Common Core Standards/Math practices. I also know the areas where students struggle.

Math is not the main reason I teach. I thrive on working with middle-schoolers. The age level is perfect for my personality. I have taught early-middle schoolers for over 10 years, constantly being recognized in my evaluations of a great rapport and awareness of the emotional/academic needs of my students.

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.

Common Core

I have been a 6th grade math teacher for 11 years. Being in a 5-8 middle school, I had the opportunity of working under the lead of a math department head who was always made sure my town, and especially my school, was up on the newest math initiatives. Switching from the paper CMT-testing to computerized Common Core SBA testing was a huge shift in my profession over the past 3 years. I also work with 2 other grade-level math teachers. We work together as 1, along with a Math Coach & Remedial Math teacher, to strengthen our students' math abilities as the Common Core continuously challenges both students and teachers! I am up to date on what CC skills/concepts should get taught in the previous grades of 4th & 5th. We also have started focusing in more deeply on the Math Practices.
