About Kelly

I have two undergraduate degrees, a B.A. in English (2009) and a B.S. in Biology (2017), and will begin a Biochemistry Ph.d program this fall at the University of Kentucky. My interests range from American literature to scientific writing and research. Due to the large amounts of writing I have done, I am knowledgeable in the rules of grammar and different styles of writing. I have tutored such subjects as ESL, study skills, grammar, writing, and biology. I also have ten years of childcare experience with children between the ages of infant and fourteen.

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.

Study Skills

When I tutor a student in understanding proper study skills I utilize an array of different methods. I incorporate the SQ3R technique, which has the student survey, question, read, recite, and review the material, such as a chapter in a Biology book. Employing this method helps the student understand the chapter while reading and decreases the time and stress in attempting to understand the material immediately before a test. I also assist in organizational skills because it is correlated to better study habits.

Writing

I have experience in different styles of writing including persuasive, research, and creative writing, due to my undergraduate degree in English. I also know the mechanics of grammar and the techniques of proper citation.
