About Kelly

I was one of those kids that loved school and I continue to strive to learn in everything that I do. Every time you meet someone you can either teach them something, learn something from them, or both. I'm passionate about music but have made my career in technology and my hobbies include professional and creative writing as well as photography. I understand what it's like to "get it" in the classroom but then it doesn't make sense when you get home. Every student is capable of achieving anything they set out to learn - it's just a matter of finding what works best for each individual. The most rewarding part of teaching is being able to share my knowledge with others and showing each student that they CAN do it! I have taught adults in both a formal and informal setting and strive to use technology to help us accomplish our goals whenever possible. It should enhance our abilities instead of hinder them. I look forward to working with you and being successful together.

I minored in English in my undergraduate degree and was published in college English and Literature course supplements at my university. I have worked in positions that have required me to compose written policies and procedures and also designed websites and organized content with proper formatting. I am also currently working on my dissertation for a PhD program in which a published paper of approximately 100 pages will be finalized.

I have been working in the computer networking industry for over 15 years. I have worked in both the public and private sector as well as been a consultant on various projects ranging from health care to law offices. My dissertation subject matter is on wireless sensor networks in home automation and I am Cisco and CompTIA certified.

I received my undergraduate degree in music and also taught voice and piano lessons to children and adults. I currently am working on an album of covers and originals in my home studio.

No matter what you have been through in the past you always have the opportunity to change your future. If you've made it this far it's because you're committed to your own success. If you select me as your tutor I promise that you will be able to learn in a non threatening environment and thrive at anything you set your mind to. I am here to help bring out the best in you and I'm confident we can accomplish it together.

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.

English

I have been published in college level English supplements multiple times, so you can be confident that I am able to present information in writing at a scholarly level as recognized by college level professors.

ESL/ESOL

Learning a language is hard. The English language is harder than most others but I have been writing and speaking in an educational and a professional setting for many years. I have been published several times and am familiar with many of the proper formats and nuances this language often utilizes.

Networking (Computer)

I am CompTIA Network + and Security + certified and have worked on networking equipment for over 15 years. I have held Network Engineer and Architect positions in which I have had to independently design, implement and troubleshoot computer networks. I have worked with Cisco, HP, Dell, Nortel, Avaya, Fortinet, Citrix, Mikrotik, Brocade, and other vendors' equipment. I have taught at conferences to other system administrators about WAN topology and connectivity and I have taught 3rd year technical college students Networking and Cyber Security classes at ITT Technical Institute. I was also an faculty assistant at a local computer learning center in my home town.

Piano

I have been playing piano since I was four years old and did the required 40 course hours all four years of my undergraduate music degree program. I have taught children of middle school age as well as adults in a home setting and currently compose my own music for an album of originals that I am working on.

Video Production

From 2000-2005 I owned my own video production business called Digital Video Dreams. We did event videography and post production services for weddings, corporate events, marketing, and music videos in both a formal and informal setting. Adobe Premiere was the primary post production tool that was used and Sony cameras were the primary video source with various audio source types.

Writing

I have been published in several college level writing supplements used for examples by students on how to properly complete assignments. I am also currently working on my dissertation which will be published in a scholarly journal and vetted by graduate professors at the graduate level.
