About Kerry

Hello!

I am an experienced tutor. Firstly, I am the second oldest of 12 siblings, most of which have been home-schooled for the past 10 years. Because of this I have had a great deal of experience tutoring all ages and all subjects. I am able to tutor: Math, Science, Social Studies, English, Language Arts, Spelling, Writing, Grammar, and Spanish. My approach to tutoring is to be kind, patient, and caring. It's important to be kind and patient with students because it may take some time for the student to really grasp what is being taught to them, but that's ok. It's important to listen to the student to understand where they are having problems so they can be addressed and fixed.

I have also been a personal home-school tutor for a 4th grader for his entire school year. I taught him all subjects: Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Language Arts, and Language Arts Extensions. I was not only his tutor, but his actual "teacher." I feel I have a firm grasp on how to teach and convey material to students. Each student learns differently, and it's important to find out the student's learning style. The student that I taught for a year was a very visual learner, and because of this, I used the white board in almost every subject to help him "see" what was being taught to him. For Math, I would write everything out and demonstrate it many times over so that he was able to firmly grasp the concepts. For Science, I would use the white board, but we would also do "hands-on" Science experiments for him to physically see what was happening. For Social Studies, we would cover a lesson about (for example) the Inuits and the way they lived. I would draw my lesson in pictures so that he remembered detailed information about the Inuits. For Language Art, I also used the white board. I would write out sentences on the board and teach him to find the different parts of speech. White at this position, I also on occasion tutored his siblings, one of which was 13, and the other was 17 years of age. As I said before, it's important to hone into each student's learning style and make that their strength. I feel I have what it takes to do this. I'm super friendly, kind, caring, but firm if need be. I hope you'll contact me if you are in need of a tutor! I can help!

I hold a High School Diploma, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Church Music from Valley Forge Christian College as well as a Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from Lee University. I come from a very musical family and am very proud of this.

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.

Kerry is absolutely the tutor I wanted for my daughter. She is patient, sweet, and knows how to pinpoint my daughter's struggles. I have seen some improvement with my daughter's reading and I have to thank Ms. Kerry.
