About Kelsey


Bio

Hello! My name is Kelsey W. and I am a Chemistry graduate from UNC-Chapel Hill who has been working as a full-time chemistry and math tutor for 4+ years. I have over 7+ years of successful tutoring experience working individually with students in their chemistry and math classes to help them achieve their academic goals while also helping them to maintain a balanced school-home lifestyle.

Hello! My name is Kelsey W. and I am a Chemistry graduate from UNC-Chapel Hill who has been working as a full-time chemistry and math tutor for 4+ years. I have over 7+ years of successful tutoring experience working individually with students in their chemistry 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 chemistry 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.
