About Kelli

I believe we should never stop learning. I've loved helping others learn since I tutored in middle school and high school. I continued tutoring in college. I eventually earned my master's degree in Adult Learning, Performance, and Development and then focused my career on teaching and training others.

Teaching, tutoring, training, coaching -- whatever method I use -- energizes me. Observing others learn and succeed invigorates me and makes me proud. Although I have and currently do design learning experiences for groups of people, I truly enjoy the opportunity to work one-on-one with someone to focus specifically on his or her needs. Our first meeting will consist of learning about those needs and developing an action plan to achieve those needs. I will periodically reassess the learning plan and progress to determine if we need to adjust. I prefer to meet in a quiet location that allows us to focus, such as a local library.

With my degree in journalism and years of writing and editing experience, I specialize in tutoring various areas of English, such as grammar, proofreading, writing, and reading.

I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

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

My undergraduate degree is in journalism and mass communication. That degree program focused on English, grammar, writing, and editing, among other things. My master's degree is in adult learning, performance, and development, which focused on teaching methods and how people learn.
I have tutored individuals from elementary to college students and have designed training for groups of adults for many years. Each situation is a little different.

Grammar

Both my undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication and my master's degree in Adult Learning, Performance, and Development require taught and emphasized the importance of writing skills. Grammar is one of my specialties. Even though many people dislike the intricacies of grammar, I truly enjoy it. My academic work included a strong emphasis on grammar to build the foundation for my career, which is writing-focused.

Writing

Both my undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication and my master's degree in Adult Learning, Performance, and Development require taught and emphasized the importance of writing skills. I have since demonstrated these skills successfully in my career. I've tutored and trained several people of various ages on their writing skills.
