About Kerrie


Bio

I have always loved learning, and I want to share that experience with my students. After spending 16 years as a professional scientist in the field of medicine, I have decided to focus on helping my children and other students with their academic quest. I can take the pain out of learning new things, share my enthusiasm and make school interesting. I will teach you the academic discipline skills that will help you achieve your goals. I can even help you figure out what you really want.

Great at providing strategies

We started with a basic review of some math concepts. She provided different, easy to understand strategies for the material. I was able to immediately take what I'd learn and use it for test practice.

Laronda, 1 lesson with Kerrie

Very good tutor!

We had our first session with Kerrie (online) and she did a very good job helping my 11th grade daughter with Algebra 2. She will also be helping her with Chemistry. My daughter really liked working with Kerrie and felt comfortable asking questions and had a better understanding of the material after their session.

Colleen, 1 lesson with Kerrie

Excellent tutor

Kerrie is knowledgeable and has creative ways to convey difficult problems in a way that is easily understood. I appreciate her patience and her positivity. I’m looking forward to using her again!

Sophia, 6 lessons with Kerrie

Excellent Tutor

Kerrie is an amazing tutor. She worked on geometry with my high schooler and was very helpful. She listened and let my daughter explain what areas she was having difficulties with.

Beth, 12 lessons with Kerrie

Always a wonderful tutor!

Kerri has, now, tutored 3 of our high school aged grandchildren. She is simply marvelous. She is patient and helpful. The kids have all felt safe and comfortable with her guidance. She has tutored them in Algebra II and Geometry.

Kimberley, 19 lessons with Kerrie

Knowledgeable and Patient

Kerrie filled the teaching gap where reading the book was insufficient. Patient and challenged me gently to ensure I understood the concepts I was learning along the way.

Marjorie, 1 lesson with Kerrie

Professional and caring.

Kerrie is professional, kind, and caring. She provides a low stress approach to learning. She gives multiple explanations that make since. Very much enjoyed learning from her.

Victor , 2 lessons with Kerrie

Outstanding!

Kerrie just began working with our recently homeschooled 13-year-old son. We couldn't have hoped for a better fit. She's been great, patient, and a very effective tutor for our son. And she really knows her stuff! Looking forward to working with her more in the future.

Alison, 18 lessons with Kerrie
