About Kelly

My name is Kelly. I hold a BA in Political Science and I just graduated from law school. I'm currently studying for the Bar exam in Hawaii. I live on the Windward side of Oahu with my husband, dog, and cat. I can assist with reading comprehension, writing, English, or any of the social sciences. Weekends work best for me. I have classes M-F nights, but am free most days. I understand how tough these times are, so my rates are negotiable. I believe that learning is a skill, and that everyone has their own best approach to learning a subject. My goal is to help a student figure out how they learn best, as that will serve them the rest of their lives. Since learning is a skill, it takes practice to comprehend and retain information. I believe in working hard and celebrating all accomplishments, no matter how small. Celebrations and rewards for hard work and effort, no matter the result, boost self-esteem and encourage the student to keep trying, and keep learning. My name is Kelly.

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.

Public Speaking

Most people are afraid of public speaking. Standing in front of a group of people, trying to impart some information without getting harassed by the audience, or boring them, creates a very stressful environment. However, it is a fear that can be overcome. I have given speeches in front of large and small groups, at formal and informal events. Law school effectively erased my own timidity with public speaking because I was forced to speak, and trained to speak. In class, I was called on and had to answer questions in front of roughly 60 other people. I also was required to argue a mock case against two other students, in front of a panel of professors and judges. I participated in the Mock Trial team at my school, where my team argued a case, complete with witnesses, in front of a judge and jury. Public speaking can provide confidence, better argument skills, and help with critical thinking. I hope to help others obtain confidence in expressing themselves through public speaking.
