About Kelly

My name is Kelly and I am currently at graduate student at Columbia Teachers College pursuing a masters in International Educational Development with a concentration in bilingual/bicultural education. As an undergraduate student I studied Secondary Education and English at the State University of New York at New Paltz. During my time as an undergraduate I spent a semester studying abroad at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. During my time there I volunteered as a high school English teaching assistant, this experience sparked my desire to pursue a career in International Education. Once graduating from New Paltz I returned to Prague to work in the study abroad office at Charles University as an on-site peer counselor in which I was given the opportunity to work with in coming study abroad students in helping them adjust to life and school in Prague.

In January 2015 I left for Malaysia where I worked as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant for one year. This experience was the defining factor in my decision to apply to the International Educational Development program at Teachers College. While in Malaysia I was given the unique opportunity to work closely with the US embassy, Malaysian Ministry of Education, and other Fulbright scholars. As part of the Malaysia Fulbright program we are required to plan two English camps for our students, these camps can take any form as long as the students are practicing English. I decided to partner with a US non-profit, Kids Lacrosse the World, and establish the first ever youth lacrosse program in South East Asia at my school. The program was a tremendous success and continues to this day. Upon returning to the States in December 2015 I worked as an English teacher at Bayport Blue Point High School in New York and as the assistant middle school lacrosse coach. This experience was a great way to ease back into life in the States by doing something I truly love.

Having a degree in English education and an immense love for the subjects of reading and writing make me a qualified and motivated English tutor. In addition to my experience with English education, I have my TEFL certificate and have had three years of tutoring and teaching English as a Second Language experience in both the States and abroad.

As a passionate educator pursuing to further my degree in the field I am very excited to expand my teaching experience through tutoring!
