About Kellye

I have a PhD in Spanish from Temple University. As an African American woman, I have a near native command the Spanish language. I have taught Spanish and Portuguese to senior citizens, adults, young adults and children in varying settings for 10+ years. I also can read Italian and Catalan.

I also have experience as a volunteer ESL (English as a Second Language) instructor at Casa del Carmen, Philadelphia, through the Project SHINE program at Temple University.

A lover of travel I have visited Cuba, Spain, Mexico, Italy, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, and Portugal, but my list of travels has only just begun.

My passion for language, cultures and people is contagious and only matched by my love of Latin dance. I do salsa, mambo, cha-cha, bachata, merengue and have studied afro-cuban and bomba briefly. When possible, I like to use music, art, movies and dance to teach about the various cultures of the Spanish Speaking world. If you do well, you might even get some dance lessons in class!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
