About Kelly


Bio

I love tutoring because it allows me to witness students enjoy the successes they have earned. Tutors don't grade learners on their abilities. Instead, we encourage them to learn! I feel that this tackles the barriers that often exist between teachers and students, so that the tutor (that's me!) can develop close relationships with their learners. Students then trust their tutor to critique their work and help them make deep, lasting improvements to their learning process.

I love tutoring because it allows me to witness students enjoy the successes they have earned. Tutors don't grade learners on their abilities. Instead, we encourage them to learn! I feel that this tackles the barriers that often exist between teachers and students, so that the tutor (that's me!) can develop close relationships with their learners. Students then trust their tutor to critique their work and help them make deep, lasting improvements to their learning process.

As a professional writer and tutor, I often teach writing students how to structure their ideas, choose their style, and shape their language. In exchange, I learn how to write more effectively, communicate with my pupils, and understand other perspectives.

But, I don't just teach writing! My experience as a tutor has brought me to many kinds of students and subjects. I've tutored K-12 students in all core subjects, college students in mathematics and English, ESL graduate students in academic writing, and even adult learners in various fields. I have been a tutor since high school. First as a volunteer peer tutor, then as a college tutor for my campus writing center. As a university tutor, I peer-taught academic writing across a variety of fields while majoring in mathematics and English. From there, I proceeded to tutor and edit papers for graduate students in the Oklahoma Christian University Masters Engineering Program. I have tutored in all core subjects with Wyzant since 2015. I pursued Mathematics and English degrees in college and have additional work experience in project management, copywriting, linguistics, and marketing.

When I began working with the engineering program, the core of my graduate pupils were ESL students who had extensive knowledge in their field, but struggled to master professional and academic writing in their second language. Because of this experience, I am confident in my ability to help students with advanced English language mastery improve their English writing, as well as my ability to assist ESL stud

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kelly is very knowledgeable about citizenship exam prep. She is very patient with my mom, who has minimal English language skills. Her friendly style makes her very approachable.
