About Kerry

I am a well educated person who enjoys helping others acquire better English skills to make them feel more confident speaking with others whether at work or in their personal lives. I prefer meeting in informal places like coffee shops or a restaurant to put everyone at ease. I focus on helping individuals express themselves more clearly by correcting pronunciation, grammar and diction. I encourage vocabulary development and do this by conversing on a variety of topics.

I have an M.Ed Specialist Degree in School Psychology (Master's in Education and Psychology) from Loyola University Chicago. I really enjoy working with a diverse group of both men and women from all over the world. Most recently I have worked with people from Mexico, Poland, Russia, and Turkey. I specialize in conversational English, grammar, vocabulary, editing and proofreading written (typed) materials. I was trained as a school psychologist and have worked with both children and adults in different learning situations for more than 20 years. Understanding how people learn best helps me identify how they might best approach learning a new language or any other new information for that matter. I am a very warm, outgoing person who enjoys meeting new people and I know we can work well together! I am very supportive and always have encouraging words to keep you motivated to meet your goals. Please contact me and let's get started!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I have excelled in my English writing skills from an early age. Throughout high school I attended all Honors and Advanced Placement courses related to English skill development, including both reading and writing skills. Although not in an official capacity, I tutored friends in these same skills in both college and graduate school.

Special Needs

I have an M.Ed Specialist Degree in School Psychology (Master's in Education and Psychology) from Loyola University Chicago. This degree gives me expertise in the areas of learning, disabilities, curriculum development, teaching strategies, accommodations needed across the disability spectrum, and intervention strategies. My role as a school psychologist is to identify barriers to learning and ways to mediate them. I have more than 20 years' experience in this area and continue to be passionate about helping those impacted by special needs whether that be an individual or their family.
