My name is Kelly, and I have been an educator for 15+ years. Thank you for considering me as an option for an important member of your educational team! I have worked thousands of hours preparing literally hundreds of students for the ISEE or SSAT, so these exams--at all three levels--are my expert areas. I have been a classroom teacher in middle schools in the US and abroad, and I have taught learning-different students both in a classroom setting and one-on-one. My approach to working with students one-on-one is to get to know my students' learning styles, so that I can help them build confidence and use their strengths. I find teaching joyful, and I feel honored to be able to help students "find" and build on their strengths in reading, writing, and math.

When teaching elementary and middle level math, I use hands-on methods to help learners understand math concepts. I use games, movement, and fun with younger learners to build automaticity with essential math facts. I've been exploring websites and resources for years, filling my teaching toolbox with endless tools to help any type of learner.

It takes more than just someone who is an excellent writer or reader or academic to teach writing or reading or other academic skills. Teaching requires flexibility, dedication, insight, and experience. I bring these characteristics to every lesson.

The ISEE and SSAT are difficult exams, and I work hard to help students understand both the content and the strategies necessary for either exam. I am also happy to help a family determine which exam is better for their child, given their individual strengths and their school application circumstances.

Having taken the Praxis exam, I am also well-suited to helping with this exam. I especially understand that math can be a struggle for prospective educators who haven't focused on math courses in some time. I also enjoy helping students to prepare for the reading and writing portions of the SAT.

ISEE

I have worked with over 100 students on all 3 levels of the ISEE and SSAT. For 3 years in London, I was the Director of the ISEE/SSAT programming at a test prep company. I am fully dedicated to the success of my students, as I know how important this exam is for students and families.
Praxis,

Praxis

I am a teacher with 12 years of classroom experience. My bachelors degree is in English, with a concentration in education. I took the Praxis as part of the teacher preparation program. I work with the ISEE and the SSAT, so my test-prep skills are very sharp. I can help prospective teachers prepare for this exam, because I am a teacher myself.

Outstanding tutor!

Kelly has been working with our son for a few weeks now, and he has said repeatedly he really enjoys their sessions together. Kelly is organized, communicative, and has a very clear method with sessions and some homework that seems to be working very well for our son so far. Thank you Kelly for being such an amazing tutor.

ISEE expert, fantastic teacher and fun!

This teacher knows her ISEE! She goes above and beyond and will really take this on as her case. She has a wealth of knowledge. And my 10 year olds daughter loved her! She helped me navigate the ERB as well as teach content. Highly recommend.

Great with my son!

Kelly helped my son review for the ERB. He doesn't like school much less doing extra work. She was very thorough and patient with him. She always found time to meet with us with less than 24 hours notice. It was a great match!

Awesome test prep tutor

Kelly was an awesome tutor for my daughter's ISEE test. My daughter found her to have excellent testing strategies. She also found Kelly very attentive to her particular needs, very accessible via email and Skype, and very available to give her extra homework or provide her additional resources to work with. In addition, my daughter felt that Kelly sincerely cared about her well-being and her desire to succeed. Kelly is dynamic, friendly, reliable and smart. We would definitely hire her again for future tutoring needs.
