About Kelly

I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. Over the years, I have tutored many students. I have also taught in the public school system, as well as home-schooled 5 of my own children for a period of 7 years. As a mom of 6, I am extremely organized, highly proficient in completing tasks, and very personable. I run a "well oiled machine" keeping all of my large family on task. I have 5 school aged children from 5th grade - 11th grade, so homework help, test prep, and class projects are a daily practice in our home.

I'm looking for students who may be "falling through the cracks" of the school system and who are looking for assistance in soaring academically. I love children and enjoy working with them to pursue better study habits and a deeper understanding of their academics.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida and a current Professional Teaching Certification in the State of Florida.

Handwriting

I have a degree in Elementary Education, which had academic focus on handwriting skills needing to be taught to students. Also, I have taught handwriting in the classroom. I homeschooled my eldest child and taught her handwriting before print and she wrote beautifully before she was 7 years old.

Microsoft Publisher

I first learned how to use Publisher in a class in high school, and then, for my junior and senior years, I assisted in teaching the same class. Since this time, I have developed multiple newsletters, signs, and various other projects in this program. For several years, I worked with a local company to develop all of their brochures and marketing materials and Publisher was my program of choice.

Microsoft Windows

I began using MS Windows in high school and then moved into assisting two classes where I aided other students in the use of MS Windows. I then entered into a computer programming major in college (which was later changed to an education major) and proceeded to use MS Windows for many of my classes and projects. Since this time, I have been an independent consultant for several businesses, one of my main jobs being to aid employees in using MS Windows and related features.

Phonics

I have a degree in Elementary Education and multiple courses throughout college were focused on this very subject. I understand the core elements of phonics from sounding out letters to combining sounds to successfully read. I have several games and techniques I have utilized over the years to help small children learn to read.

Study Skills

I began privately tutoring other students in high school and since then, I have obtained my degree in Elementary Education and tutored countless students in and out of the school environment. Acquiring good study skills is often a more important focus in the tutoring environment than studying a specific skill. With the correct study skills, a student can learn anything.
