About Kelly

I have taught and tutored a variety of students over the past 20+ years, mostly in middle school math, pre-algebra, algebra 1, and geometry. I love being able to work one-on-one with students in a focused setting to help them set and achieve their goals. In addition to having degrees in both education and math, being a yoga and circus arts instructor allows me to weave beneficial mindfulness practices and fun (like juggling, which helps integrate the right and left halves of the brain) into the learning process.

I believe that math can be fun and accessible to all learners. I truly enjoy helping students find ways to make math make sense to them. Being that we all learn differently, I take time to find each student's natural and preferred learning styles to maximize success. I also use a wide variety of methods including hands-on lessons, technology, games, practical life applications, and more.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you and your child!

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.

Algebra 1

I have degrees in both mathematics and elementary education. I have successfully tutored many private students in algebra 1 over the past 20 plus years. I also taught Algebra 1 to small group classes at a center for homeschooled students in Nashville.

Elementary Math

I have degrees in both elementary education and mathematics. I taught elementary math in private and public schools for several years and have been successfully tutoring students in elementary and high school math since I was in college in the late 90s.
