About Pamela

I have taught and tutored at The Walker School for 35 years. Literature, writing, and grammar are my passion. Unlike many schools, Walker taught formal grammar each year in 6th 7th and 8th grades. The school also taught Shakespeare in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. I am not sure what Walker teaches now as I have been retired for six years.

Teaching English and all of the subjects under that aegis was a dream come true. Several times in that 35 year period I had to pinch myself to make sure that I was not dreaming; that someone was actually paying me for this! Almost never during my time at Walker did I regret getting up and going to school : I consider myself extremely lucky to have had such a job.

I have also tutored several Walker students in 9th, 10th, and 12th grade English as well as Spanish I. I am sure that they would give me excellent recommendations if asked.

What makes me an outstanding English tutor is that I know my subject intimately. i have taught many of the classics as well as novels relevant to now . I still read novels meant for middle school and high school students. I can keep up with modern literature via my two granddaughters who are in the 6th and 9th grades. I love sharing my subject and making it fun. That's what my former students say about me: "Ms. Keenliside has a fun class!"

As I have stated, my former students whom I have tutored will give me excellent ratings. One 9th grade student told his parents: "School is fun when you know what you're doing" I could not have said it better. The kids I have tutored one on one have gone to Duke, Samford, UC Santa Barbara, Miami, Ohio and Brigham Young to name a few. Kids love me because I love them. I never judge.

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.
