About Kelle

Teaching is my passion. I earned my B.A. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education with a concentration in Special Education in 2005. I am certified in both Elementary Education and Special Education. I also have my M.A. in Reading Specialist through Tennessee Texhnological University. My teaching experiences include one year of 4th and 5th grade special education, three years in 3rd grade, four years in 1st grade, one year in 3rd through 5th grade special education, and one year as an intervention teacher for 3rd through 5th grade.
I have done tutoring in both the public and private sector for almost 10 years. I have tutored students after school and in the summers through my school district's summer school and tutoring programs, privately in reading, and publicly through a learning center. I believe in using strategies and interventions that utilize various learning styles in order to help students learn in different ways. I utilize hand on games, technology, and other fun activities to help with reading skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Elementary Education by the state of Tennessee. I taught 3rd grade for three years and am in my third year teaching 1st grade.

Handwriting

I have ten years teaching experience in both elementary and special education. Within those ten years, four of those years were spent in first grade. One of the areas in which I focused was handwriting. I feel that I am highly qualified to teach handwriting.

Phonics

I am currently certified in Elementary Education and Special Education in the state of Tennessee. I have taught phonics at varying levels throughout my teaching career. I am currently working on my MA in Curriculum and Instruction - Reading Specialist.

Special Needs

I am certified in Special Education by the state of Tennessee. I have taught one year of special education. Since then, I have taught six years in a regular education classroom, but have worked with students of varying academic levels.
