Hi, I’m Kelly! I am a 24-year-old female currently pursuing my PhD in Counseling Psychology. In 2019, I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in both Psychology and Theatre. I have experience teaching and tutoring students at the elementary, middle, high school, and college level.

I began tutoring at the age of 13, teaching Algebra and Arithmetic to small groups of students at a summer math camp. Returning to this volunteer work year after year inspired my love of teaching math! I also have experience tutoring high school students in Statistics, Biology, and Spanish. In summer 2017, I lived in Ecuador and taught English courses to students ages 8 to 17. There, I planned lessons on vocabulary, grammar, language function, and reading. I worked both 1-on-1 with students and as a classroom teacher. The next year, I studied abroad in Chile and tutored children ages 10 to 14 in English, math, and science.

After completing my BA, I spent a year in Ireland teaching music and catechesis to second and sixth graders. This past year, I taught Intro to Psychology to undergraduates at the University of Akron. I’ve become well-versed with online teaching, and I am happy to meet in person or virtually!

I believe one of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my knowledge of educational, developmental, and cognitive psychology. I have spent time studying how people learn, how the brain changes when we study, and how the mind develops through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood. I also utilize counseling skills to uncover students’ anxieties and build motivation.

My teaching philosophy is rooted in the education of the whole person. I genuinely care for my students and want to see them succeed! I emphasize students’ strengths, building confidence while scaffolding around their growth edges. I believe that improving a student’s sense of competence, providing them choices, and making material relevant to their lives can transform learning from a chore into a joy.
