Bio

I am a Tri-lingual teacher (English, Spanish, and French) with a B.S. Ed in Elementary Education from Baylor University and a M.A. in English from UNLV. I have had 10 years experience in Secondary Language Arts at the middle and high school levels, focused primarily in 6th and 9th grades in the Clark County School District.

I am a Tri-lingual teacher (English, Spanish, and French) with a B.S. Ed in Elementary Education from Baylor University and a M.A. in English from UNLV. I have had 10 years experience in Secondary Language Arts at the middle and high school levels, focused primarily in 6th and 9th grades in the Clark County School District. I have also been a part-time instructor in composition at UNLV. My prior experience at the Elementary level, consists of: having done my student teaching in Escondido and Vista California through National University and having spent time as a substitute teacher in the Little Rock, AR School District, of which I am a product I believe in working with students where they are and developing a love of learning. I think early success and consistent advancement are the keys to growth, and that a love of learning is much more important than any individual skill. I look forward to working with students of all ages and skill levels to help them reach their goals.

My main asset as a tutor is a wide content knowledge and a willingness to treat students with dignity and belief in their ability to grow no matter how "far behind" they may believe themselves to be. All learning is growth and all learners are ready with certain skills at different rates. A tutoring situation allows for these differences and keeps a student from being "bored" by either repeating skills that have already been mastered, simply because they are "part of the course" or because they are being presented with material for which they are not yet ready for much the same reason.

Thank you for considering me to help you achieve your dreams!

Very patient

Did a great job for the first session. My daughter is going to be a challenge but I think Kelly is the right tutor. So far we worked on reading and next we will work on math

Ronald, 3 lessons with Kelly

Kelly is an Excellent Tutor

Kelly helped my kids improve their Spanish and writing in preparation for the start of school. She is patient and my kids really enjoyed working with her. They are showing increased confidence in speaking and writing Spanish.

Raymond, 8 lessons with Kelly

Knowledgeable and patient

She did an assessment with my kid, and her way ‘clicks’ with her. Very good experience. She was patient and encouraging, and my 7yr old had the whole hour class without my assistance with her.

Xiaomei , 35 lessons with Kelly

Highly recommend

My son was able to learn and finish his assignments that was due today. She was a great instructor towards my son he was able to do multiplication on his own right after his call with her. I really appreciate her help and I highly recommend her.

David, 3 lessons with Kelly

Knowledgeable teacher

Spanish, great teacher and patient and caring!! I knows my culture and helps develop trust with my children...takes her time to teach and get to know her student

Beatriz, 10 lessons with Kelly

One of the best tutors we've worked with.

Kelly is a wonderful tutor - she really partners with the student. Accomplished not only just homework adjectives but concept objectives and learning styles. Our son was behind in school and she was able to catch him up rather quickly. She has made a dramatic impact are son's educational career. All I can do is give great compliments about Kelly. If you're looking for a tutor to help your child this one would be great to add to your team.
