Hi, I'm Kelly! I'm a PhD student in Clinical Psychology. I graduated with a M.A. degree in Psychology from New York University and also completed my B.A. degree in Global Liberal Studies at NYU where I graduated magna cum laude. I am a published writer with experience crafting journalistic pieces, blog posts, literary essays, thesis projects, research study articles, resumes, professional cover letters and personal statements for applications.

During my studies, I had many professors and mentors who inspired me and gave me the confidence to pursue my higher education. I aspire to give my students this same motivation and support as a tutor. Writing can be one of the most difficult academic areas for students across all ages, whether it be learning how to write one's first five paragraph essay, crafting a personal statement for college applications or mastering a subject area in a college level thesis. I hope to give my students the skills to clearly and effectively communicate their unique ideas and perspectives in their writing.

I started tutoring my fellow classmates as a peer tutor in high school for students who needed extra support in writing, study skills and reading comprehension. In college, I was often a go to proofreader for my classmates while they wrote their first college essays. I continue to enjoy helping my peers in higher education master their writing, reading and communication skills.

I also enjoy tutoring fellow Psychology students whether they need test prep for the Psychology GRE or a class exam, proofreading for a research essay or a refresher on core Psychology concepts and terms. Some of my qualifications are a score in the 91st percentile (750) on the Psychology GRE test and a 4.0 GPA while pursuing my M.A. degree in Psychology at NYU.

My professional writing and editing experience started in journalism when I was a correspondent for my local newspaper in California. I continued to write articles for young adult career blogs during my undergraduate degree at NYU, and I had a chapter of my undergraduate thesis published in Columbia University's narrative medicine journal. I scored in the 88th percentile (161) on the Verbal section of my GRE general exam and scored in the 98th percentile (5.5) on my GRE analytical writing essays.

I'm excited to work with you and help you achieve your academic goals! Please feel free to contact me to learn more about setting up your first lesson.

I worked in the recruiting and Human Resources field for 2+ years. I started as a recruitment intern where I assessed candidates' resumes and interviewed them with my boss to get a sense of their strengths and weaknesses, their career goals and current struggles in their job search. We edited their resumes and cover letters and coached them through the interview process. I also worked for an organization in New York City that provided career coaching and resume and interview workshops for young adults looking for their first full-time job. Finally, I was an HR coordinator at a media company where I performed various recruitment duties such as screening resumes, sourcing for open jobs and checking references. I know what makes a good resume and cover letter and what employers are looking for in an interview. I have helped many peers throughout their job searches.

Kelly is an EXCELLENT and PROFESSIONAL career coach!

I strongly recommend Kelly to any graduate, or anyone, needing advice on career development. Kelly helped to evaluate my son’s skill-set and suggested various jobs that my son would most enjoy and should be applying for. She created a concrete platform for my son to build on, helped to tailor my son’s cover letters and resume, and showed him extremely useful interview techniques. She prepared my son and directed him so he felt confident walking into each step of the application process. I can't speak highly enough of Kelly!
