About Kelly

Teaching has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. My nature is curious, optimistic, and compassionate, so whenever some new intriguing information comes about, I have a deep need to share it. I have been tutoring American Sign Language since 2008 and love figuring out the way different students' minds work.

My method of tutoring is determining how to make learning fun for the student. I love helping others solve problems that they may have otherwise struggled with. The best way to learn is to teach, so sometimes I will have students create a "lesson plan" for me, then teach me about what they are learning. From there, I can decipher where the trouble spots are and guide the student to the answer they are looking for.

I have a calm, happy, hopeful demeanor and believe that every student can succeed. Nobody learns the same exact way, so it's about tailoring the learning experience to the student to create the best results.

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.

Sign Language

I have been learning American Sign Language since I was six-years-old (21 years!). It is a native language to me and I pursued it further in college by taking every ASL class, then going on to be a tutor and teacher's aide in the subject. My degree is in Linguistics from UCLA, which further helped me understand the intricacy of language. Finally, I completed a two year Interpreter Training Program (ITP) and have completed the first half of my certification as an interpreter through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.

Knowledge and easy to interact with — My daughter is progressing amazingly. She looks forward to her lessons. Kelly R is a wonderful teacher and I would recommend her to everyone. My daughter is not hearing impaired she just had an interest in learning the language BUT if you need to learn because of necessity I would absolutely recommend Kelly R even more. Her comforting demeanor makes learning even easier ...
