My tutoring philosophy focuses on identifying your strongest areas in a subject and building upon your strengths until you are confident in your ability to achieve your goals. During our initial meeting, we will discuss and create an action plan to ensure your academic goals are achieved. Tutoring sessions can focus on preparing for a test, tutoring throughout a course, or tutoring sessions that focus on developing strategies for a research paper, Capstone paper, and Senior/Graduate Thesis.

Teaching became a passion for me while completing my PhD. I have worked as a Teaching Assistant in undergraduate clinical nursing classes and have taught research classes at the Graduate level. As a Nurse Educator, I have received multiple teaching awards including Teacher of the Year.

I am currently tutoring students in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland so I am sure that we can find a mutually agreeable location to meet.

I look forward to working with you to develop a plan to achieve academic success!

Great tutor!

I have had previous tutors and I was surprised by some of the tips Kelly taught me in our first meeting alone. This is my fourth year as a nursing student and she was able to quickly determine what my opportunities were. Excited to work with her.

Great Tutor

I found Kelly last year when I was preparing to start taking my entrance exam for nursing school. At first I thought I would have to have more than one tutor for each subject that is on the test. When I found Kelly I did not have to do that! She was able to help me in each subject I needed, which was Biology and Chemistry. She had many practice tests and questions that I found very helpful. Before going to see Kelly my test scores were no where near passing. Now I am able to use all the tools she gave me, and my score has gone up significantly. She is very helpful and an overall great tutor.

The greatest!

I got a "C" in Chem 1. Onto Chem 2 I was really freaking out. One lesson with Kelly she really managed to get me to understand it. If I only had her when I had anatomy!!! I am going to need her for the next couple of years.!!! If she can help me get through these sciences I think I will dedicate my degree to her.

Great tutor

Kelly was very kind and knowledgeable in my daughter's class work. She identified the areas she needed help in and made a plan on how to address them. We look forward to our next lesson with her.

Lisa, 9 lessons with Kelly

Great tutor, very patient, a true teacher.

Kelly gave me the courage I needed to do the problems, the way she explains and the knowledge she has allow me to understand chemistry on a better level. I felt more confident in understanding the material much better. She didn't even watch the clock like most tutors, we just kept on solving problems until she felt I understood them. She was the best I have experience thus far. I thanked her over and over for helping me. She was GREAT.
