About Kelly

I am a dedicated teacher who enjoys watching students succeed in school. My passion and enthusiasm is expressed in my teaching qualities. I returned back to school to complete my teaching degree after having 5 children of my own. I knew teaching was the route for me.

I enjoy math, science, history and social studies. Math is my main focus and teaching fundamentals is a crucial criteria for all math students. I use many techniques to capture the many different learning styles. Manipulatives is one of my primary ways to teach the concepts.

I take great pride in my tutoring and will do my best to help your child succeed in his or her academic learning. Please let me know if you are not completely satisfied with your lessons. I would also like to know if you like my teaching styles and are satisfied too.

I would like to make sure the turoring is in a safe and quiet area so even though I will travel, I prefer that all sessions take place at the Park Ridge public library. This will allow other resources to be available for the student and myself to resort to if needed.

I understand that things come up and cancellations happen. I do however ask for notice. I will provide a make up session.

I look forward to hearing from you and get you or your child on to a successful academic path!

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.
