About Kelly

I enjoy being able to see the change in a student's attitude and achievement that comes from hard work and self-confidence. I have been a classroom teacher for 20 years, and a tutor for 14 years. Tutoring is very rewarding since I can track progress and actually make a difference in a student's future. I have tutored at all levels (K-college), but enjoy working on test prep the most.

There is rarely anything fun about preparing for standardized tests. They can be painfully boring. But, the more a student works, the more results can be seen. Since these scores make such a difference, I try to inspire my students to take it as a challenging game they need to win. Once you choose to not let the test get the best of you, it can be looked at in a different way.

Over the years, I have tutored a wide variety of skill levels, which has helped me to be a flexible tutor. One of the significant challenges for most students is that the test material is not anything they find interesting. The test makers do this on purpose!

Please contact me for more information or to schedule sessions. I can meet you at a coffee place, library, or your house.

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.
