About Keri

I have had a variety of experiences that shape my approach to teaching and learning. Certified to teach both Math and Spanish, I began teaching in Chicago before moving to Milan, Italy, where I worked as a private tutor. I then settled in my home state of Michigan and actively participated in my children's education.

I started a farmers market business to sell my trash-free alternatives. I am passionate about purposeful living. One of my favorite places to be is my backyard which I call The Yarden because it is home to many vegetables, berries, chickens, and honeybees. I also love to share my skills with others and host an annual skill-share night, where folks can gather and share their skills around a certain theme.

I am an engaging teacher who truly cares that each of my students succeeds. I have over 5 years of tutoring experience in a variety of settings, including universities, high schools, elementary schools, and even a county jail! I also have 4 years of successful classroom teaching experience, which includes creating my own lessons and assessments, communicating with parents and administrators, and receiving lots of positive feedback from students.

I am an energetic self-starter who recently teamed up with a local school to help them achieve Green School Status. My colleagues describe me as organized, creative, resourceful, and funny. My areas of expertise are Math, reading, writing, study skills, and ESL.

I have a 12 hour cancellation policy and am flexible about tutoring locations. I look forward to sharing my teaching and learning skills to help you become a better self!
