About Kelly


Bio

I am enthusiastic about tutoring math and physics, it's a joy to help students see the beauty of math and science. I have degrees in math and Physics from Southern Methodist Univeristy, a Masters in Physical Oceanography (think Physics of the Ocean) from UH and am in the process of earning my PhD. I've taught math and physics courses on the university and graduate levels as well as tutored students from elementary school all the way up to graduate school.

I am enthusiastic about tutoring math and physics, it's a joy to help students see the beauty of math and science. I have degrees in math and Physics from Southern Methodist Univeristy, a Masters in Physical Oceanography (think Physics of the Ocean) from UH and am in the process of earning my PhD. I've taught math and physics courses on the university and graduate levels as well as tutored students from elementary school all the way up to graduate school.

I find working through problems and repetition are the best means of learning math and science. My students and I work through problems to confirm mastery as well as understanding. I am able to form extra problems in order to provide extra practice.

As a grad student my schedule is extremely flexible and usually, I am able to meet same day if necessary. I provide my contact information to students so they are able to contact me with questions. On average, I provide a response within an hour.

I look forward to working with you or your student.

Lessons tell me to be patient and thorough

Kelly P. helped me to appreciate that I need solutions to my problems, they take time and it's going to be hard work. Thankful someone has the answer when I get lost. Now, I am in a statistics class and we are designing a road race for Bicyclists. The statistical challenges of running a cross-country road race. We are actually having fun using Statistics. Kelly is a really good math Coach. Thanks, Kelly.

Very helpful with Calculus 3

Kelly helped me with calculus, specifically sums and series. She uses a very helpful flowchart for the rules to sums. She's great at clearing up concepts and getting right down to what is important and what's not. I appreciate her for helping me better understand calculus.

Patient and a great relationship builder!!

Over the course of a month, Kelly had taught me multiple subcategories. As a tutor she makes sure I understand a concept before we move forward, she supports and pushes me if I am not too sure. She deserves 10 out of 5 stars. Would recommend to everyone!!

Great Tutor

Kelly was exactly what I needed for help with a major exam. She was extremely helpful and got me to understand geometry better than my school teacher. I know I will have many more challenging things in geometry so I can't wait to work with her again!

Gotta love Kelly!

I’ve only had two sessions with Kelly but she has been great. Always on time, always patient, and really explains things when you legit do not understand. She has given me advice on things I need work on, and even sent me worksheets to help me with my studying. . I plan to have more sessions with her to help me as my calculus II final approaches

Knowledgeable and relatable tutor!

Kelly helped with algebra and with science. Most impressive was her ability to help to build confidence with our daughter. Our daughter was very positive about the experience and looks forward to their next session.
