About Kelsey

I was working for MN MathCorps as a Math Enrichment Tutor for a year, tutoring middle school tutors who fell below grade level in math in order for them to become proficient in Algebra by the end of eighth grade. I recruited, coordinated, and trained volunteers to provide basic math skills help to students. In undergrad, I majored in Chemistry (graduated in 2013 from Gustavus). During my time in undergrad, I had the opportunity to be a Teacher Assistant for a few chemistry labs junior and senior year of college. I worked as a Quality Control/Research & Development chemist for almost 2 years before pursing my Masters in Nursing.

I loved being able to see the progress of each individual student and make their needs met. I enjoyed working with a small group (2 students) at a time, which gave them more opportunities to ask questions. and felt more confident in their knowledge base. Having a smaller group of students also helped me to personalize their teaching plans to better suit their learning needs. During my tutoring sessions, I try to minimize distractions and stick to the lesson as much as possible. If it is evident the student is not understanding the content, I was step back and review old content and revise that day's lesson based on the student's needs.

I love math and I was a tutor for one year in a middle school. I love helping students learn and try to change my teaching style based on how the student learns the best. I am currently enrolled in a Masters in Nursing program and plan to teach for a few years after graduation. Throughout various jobs, I have been a supervisor and have trained co-workers.
