The College of New Jersey (English Secondary Ed)
1821 Baltimore Avenue (Enrolled)
Hello, my name is Kelsey and I am a 21-year-old student at The College of New Jersey. I am a double major in English and Secondary Education and I hope to be a high school English teacher after I receive my degree and certification in spring 2017. I am currently a junior at TCNJ and I am in a practicum right now where I am teaching in an eighth grade English Language Arts class.
While I hope to be a high school teacher, I genuinely love kids of all ages. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. My experience with kids includes being a nanny for a boy who has autism in the summer where I helped him with his summer school homework, being a certified substitute teacher where I have subbed in all different age level classrooms in the Manchester school district, being an assistant dance teacher at Shore Ballet School in Island Heights, and being a mentor for students with cognitive disabilities through the CCS program at The College of New Jersey. I have worked with kids of all different ages and abilities and I have genuinely enjoyed all of the experiences that I have had.
My second major at TCNJ is in English. With the high level literary, writing, and linguistic courses that I have taken I would be a valuable help in terms of high school or middle school English classes, AP Lit/Lang classes, or SAT writing and reading prep. However, through my education major I have also taken courses on the importance of literacy in the classroom and developing better reading skills, and these are applicable to all ages. I am comfortable working with any age group and feel confident that I could help students of any age improve their literacy skills.
I am looking to start working around the middle of May once spring semester is finished. I would love to tutor as much as possible this summer and I think that it would be a great experience for me. I am also willing to keep my schedule flexible and I welcome parents reaching out to me. Hello, my name is Kelsey and I am a 21-year-old student at The College of New Jersey.

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.
