About Keri

I’m Keri! I have always had a love of teaching ever since I was little. I graduated from UNF with a bachelor's degree in Pre-K /Primary Education which is 3 years old up to 3rd grade. I recently add a certification of Exceptional Education K-12. I have worked as a teacher in a kindergarten, first, and second grade classroom. I currently am teaching in a K-2 classroom at a private Exceptional Education School.

I specialize in tutoring reading, handwriting, and phonics. One of my goals for students during my tutoring sessions is to have fun while learning. I believe that these are foundational skills that all students need to know and I believe that learning should be fun and enjoyable. I think that it is important for students to enjoy learning because the love of learning is something everyone is born with and I think it is important to make sure that love is never squashed. In the tutoring sessions, I will frequently assess the students' progress to make sure I am always aware of their current needs as well as to be able to celebrate successes.

I love to read and I want to instill a love of reading in everyone. Reading is such a wonderful thing, you can travel so many places while sitting in your living room through the reading of books. One of my favorite book series is The Magic Treehouse. Readers travel through many places with two young children. I have used many outstanding phonics programs with many students. I believe that phonics is such an important skill and one that can be a lot of fun for students to learn.

I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible, therefore I welcome any resources or suggestions students, student’s teachers, or parents can provide. I am easy to reach and will always provide fast responses. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to be successful.
