About Kelly

I am currently a Title I Reading teacher and have taught at the elementary level for 17 years. I specialize in early reading areas such as phonics, reading comprehension and fluency. I like to infuse music, art and games into all my lessons. I love to see my students having fun while learning. Three years ago I was named teacher of the year for my building. I also hold an administration degree.

I am currently part of the Reading department in the town I work for.

For most of the 17 years of teaching I spent it as a kindergarten teacher which is pretty much the basis of all I taught. In my current position I offer tier 3 intervention to students in grades k-5. Basically I give more individual instruction to those who struggle in reading.

I will provide students with fun, interactive lessons that will have them learning in no time!!

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.

Phonics

I taught kindergarten for 14 years and most of the instruction was phonics based. I now am a Title One Reading teacher in which I provide tier 3 instruction to those who struggle in reading. The techniques I use are all based on the Literacy Howe training I received from being a member of the Reading Department in the town I work for.
