Hello! My name is Kelsey W. and I am a Chemistry graduate from UNC-Chapel Hill who has been working as a full-time science and math tutor for 3+ years.

Hello! My name is Kelsey W. and I am a Chemistry graduate from UNC-Chapel Hill who has been working as a full-time science and math tutor for 3+ years. I have over 6+ years of successful tutoring experience working individually with students in their science and math classes to help them achieve their academic goals while also helping them to maintain a balanced school-home lifestyle.

A common underlying reason I have seen for students seeking science and math help, apart from the help offered from their schools and teachers, stems from the students feeling a lack of focused effort and attention on their individual success in the classroom. My primary goal while tutoring is to make sure every student feels important, empowered, and cared for when working through the difficulties they are facing in their science and math classes. Foundational misconceptions from common core science and math standards not fully grasped during previous studies will then arise and through our combined efforts towards tackling those problems and misconceptions together, we can achieve academic success as we progress through our lessons. Science and math concepts can be so much fun to learn and are very interesting when presented in a creative and laissez -faire teaching style as to give the student the necessary space to start developing their analytical and critical thinking skills that will help in all areas of study in the future.

I would love to get started helping you or your student achieve academic success in science and math classes! :)

I have over 10+ years experience tutoring math students primarily in elementary, middle and high school classes. I worked as an online-math tutor for 2+ years gaining experience from the nation's best educational providers on the top learning strategies and tips on how to engage students and help them understand the deeper meaning behind the problems they are solving. I have knowledge of common-core standards for all grade levels and aim to prepare my students to exceed these guidelines.

Chemistry

I have 6+ years of experiential tutoring success helping students reach their academic goals in their college and high school chemistry labs and classes. A common underlying problem I have found with students who are not satisfied with their chemistry performance stems from a misconception in their foundational understanding of chemistry. Chemistry is so much fun to learn when the calculations are clear and everything is running smoothly. However, answering problems incorrectly and feeling bogged down by an overload of concepts being taught can be very disheartening for the student's mindset. When a student's understanding of chemistry problems starts to unravel, it can be hard to discern between the correct and incorrect foundational problem-solving strategies they have learned. Oftentimes, the misunderstanding or error in calculations is minimal but without proper guidance through the problem, being able to clearly see the one misstep can be very difficult. Problem-solving confidence can also be an underlying problem. When students are unsure of the reasons why they are solving a problem a certain way, it can become commonplace to backtrack and second guess their calculated answers. Being able to talk through every step of their problem-solving method with someone while using foundational chemistry concepts for their reasoning can make a huge impact on the student's overall performance in the class. I love being able to talk through chemistry problems and concepts with students of all ages so a positive learning environment can be established and persist through all levels of their chemistry endeavors. I believe everyone has the ability to become successful in their chemistry goals with proper guidance and a determined mindset. I love being able to aide in students' success by helping to guide their learning in the right direction.

How to: solve, transform, and graph an equation

Kelsey was very detailed and very patient with me. She explained everything we did and didn’t give me the answers. We worked together to solve them. Thanks, Kelsey! 🙂

Sherri, 1 lesson with Kelsey

outstanding

Very knowledgeable and skilled at helping others. Thank you for helping my daughter in chemistry. Your patience helped her to understand difficult problems. Thank you.

Keith, 2 lessons with Kelsey

Excellent. Highly recommended

Kelsey gave my little girl confidence in Chemistry! Thank you! She’s professional, knowledgeable, super helpful and incredibly nice. Worth every penny. We will continue to use her services!!

Scott, 3 lessons with Kelsey

Great lesson!

My daughter felt SOOOO much better about her understanding of the chemistry concepts and is looking forward to future lessons! Kelsey is very patient and knowledgeable.

Miranda, 3 lessons with Kelsey

Kind, intelligent and patient tutor

Kelsey helped me with understanding all of my Chemistry homework problems. She is very patient when I didn't understand something and encouraged me to continue on when I didn't know how to solve something. She also had her own problems which we did together, which also helped me with Chemistry. She is good at explaining concepts and she is a very kind tutor. Once due to my poor internet connection, Wyzant was not working for me, so instead of cancelling the session, she helped me over the phone! She is so kind and easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend!

Patient and effective!!

Kelsey was patient, resourceful, and effective in helping me to understand the chemistry problems I was battling and provided the information I was looking for! Will definitely contact her again!

Emily, 2 lessons with Kelsey

Super smart and helpful

Kristina loves her time with Kelsey and finds her a valuable resource and possessing a wealth of knowledge. She meets with her weekly and always has an increase in confidence after their appointment.

Dana, 16 lessons with Kelsey

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kelsey has been wonderful with my daughter! She explains math clearly, she is patient and she goes above and beyond what I would expect from a tutor. She has turned my daughter’s math grades around and I highly recommend her.

James, 36 lessons with Kelsey

If you want an A...

My daughter missed 3 days of her Honors Chemistry class due to illness. Kelsey jumped in and helped her earn an A on her test. My daughter looks forward to continuing to work with Kelsey! She appreciates Kelsey's positive reinforcement and most importantly, Kelsey's ability to explain things so that she can actually understand them as opposed to memorizing textbook definitions!
