About Kelly

I love language. I have been engaged with it throughout my academic career. Now, I get to study how it is used in the world around us-- as well as how it develops and how it is understood--as a Sociophonetician. I enjoy this work, but I regret that my research has taken me away from one-on-one interaction with students who strive to learn more about the English language and how to use its multiple applications with fluidity.

Working with you gives me the opportunity to do something I love! This somewhat informal platform keeps everything fresh and exciting, and allows me to see this language working and changing in real time. This is an experience I value both personally and professionally. I look forward to helping you with any English language need, from basic vocabulary to academic writing, from test preparation to formal presentation.

I have been studying contemporary American English for fifteen years now, five as a professional linguist. English is what I do.

I have helped over 15 students (most non-Native English speakers) prepare for the verbal portions of the GRE. I enjoy talking through the nuances of vocabulary, studying roots, and helping with reading comprehension and argumentation. Every student I have helped has gone on to a graduate program. This is work that is uniquely rewarding!
