I received my postgraduate education and teaching experiences in both the United States and the United Kingdom. I have professional experience exhibiting my own artworks internationally. I enjoy sharing my experiences of visiting art galleries and museums in Europe, East Africa, the USA, and Asia. I have a passion for creative writing, and I like to communicate this excitement for writing to my students. I love to check my students' understanding of material through formative assessment. I have had great success with my students, ranging from elementary school to college, and non-traditional students. I have taught students in general education and students that received special education services. One of my greatest strengths is finding creative approaches to enable all students to progress in their learning. In various teaching and support capacities, I have worked for education businesses, education non-profits, in public schools, and at a university. I am a certified art teacher (elementary through high school). I am content certified in subjects at the high school level. I have special education adapted curriculum and general curriculum certifications. I have gained certification in elementary education.

To assist students in reading, I have utilized Distar approaches, and I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham approaches to reading instruction. I leave room for my students to surpass all expectations that anyone has ever had for them. I love encouraging my students along their learning journey. I truly believe in my students!

Painting

I don't remember when I first picked up a paintbrush, but I know that it definitely changed my world in amazing ways. Creating paintings is like a way of life for me. It brings me such happiness, and I love sharing that joy of painting with others. My masters degree in fine art equipped me well to really understand the various approaches and techniques involved in painting. During my participation in several college program abroad, I have studied an extensive history of art, visiting a number of museums in Europe. I have exhibited my own paintings internationally. My teaching experience in painting started in 2006, and I have taught painting to students in a variety of settings. My greatest expertise is in acrylic and oil painting. However, I also have experience and have taught watercolor painting, too. I love exploring color theory. I am happy to individualize instruction to meet your interests and level. Even if you have never painted before, I would be overjoyed to have the opportunity to welcome you to the wonderful world of painting!

ADHD

For many years, I have worked with students that have a diagnosis of ADD or ADHD. I really enjoy working with these students. My special education certification has equipped me with tools for encouraging engagement, providing redirection, and honing in on areas for review. I take a patient and determined approach with students. I understand the importance of meeting the individual needs of each student that I teach.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have special education certification and over fourteen years of experience teaching students that have been diagnosed with autism. I have taught students with high functioning autism, students on moderate level intellectual functioning, and students with severe autism. The majority of students that I have taught have been middle school and high school students that have been diagnosed with mild to moderate level autism that attend school in a self-contained setting. I have taught social skills and life skills lessons to students. When working with students with autism, I love to encourage them and utilize creative problem solving techniques to best meet their individual needs. My art background helps me think outside of the box and teach creatively.

Kind and very smart

She taught me techniques that i didn't know were possible in a fun and retain-able way. She helped me become confident in new art tools that i had no idea what to do with them. Thanks Kelly can't wait for the next lesson!

Joshua, 2 lessons with Kelly

Can’t wait for my next session!

Kelly taught me how to improve my work with depth and detail. She also taught me how to gesso a canvas. She is patient and knowledgeable. I can’t wait for my next session!

Susan, 6 lessons with Kelly

Excellent art teacher

Kelly is knowledgeable, patient and offers concise explanations. I would highly recommend Kelly to teach students of any ages. My only complaint is with Wyzant because they misrepresent the price of the class.

Andrea, 4 lessons with Kelly

Extremely knowledgeable and patient. Great with kids.

Kelly has been teaching my children an intro to drawing class for the past two months. They look forward to and enjoy the time they are with Kelly. Her pleasant manner and ability to instruct to their specific style is impressive. She shares wonderful progress notes afterwards. We are very grateful to have found her.

Sarah, 11 lessons with Kelly

Helpful and insightful tutor for our son

Kelly was able to convince our son, who needs lots of help with executive functioning (in a virtual or real classroom), to find a method and rationale for adopting some new habits and organizing his work in a new way. He found her easy to talk with, liked her ideas for getting organized, and looks forward to working with her again.

Awesome Tutor

I have been very pleased with the work that Kelly is doing with my son. She is very patient and kind and finds great ways to connect with him and keep him engaged. She is always very prepared and punctual and seems to really enjoy what she does. I plan to continue using her and am very glad we found such an awesome tutor! She’s been a ray of light during this dark time!

My Grandson is really enjoying his art lessons

Kelly is really patient and a great listener. She has tailored her lessons to my grandson. She is extremely professional and a great teacher. She has more than fulfilled my expectations.

Fun and patient art teachers

My kids enjoyed their lessons with Ms. Kelly. My younger kids made beautiful cards for their grandma's birthday! Ms Kelly's classes are well explained. She has multiple angles to show her drawing, which makes it easier to follow. It's very effective. I strongly recommend this teacher!
