About Keri

I am an experienced tutor who has worked with all ages and currently teaches college.

My background is primarily in English. I have a BA in English from Brigham Young University, a MA in Writing from the University of Winchester, and a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies from the University of Tennessee. I have had creative writing published and am also experienced as a freelance journalist.

I have taught in both classroom settings and as a one-on-one tutor. Most of my experience is in teaching English (including ESL, reading and writing), but I have also tutored other subjects up to a high school level. Additionally, I am experienced at working with home-schooled students.

I grew up in the Knoxville area, but then lived in different places around the world, including England. I am currently in the Knoxville area, and I am an assistant professor in the English Department at Pellissippi State Community College.

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.

Bible Studies

I love studying the Bible. I completed a two-year Bible study seminary program as a teenager, and later took Bible and other religious classes at university. Between earning my BA and MA, I spent 18 months as a full-time missionary and was a certified lay-minister. Since then I have continued to study the Bible and serve in church roles, such as teaching Sunday School classes on the Bible.

Classics

As a student and teacher of literature, I have had the chance to study the classics. This includes researching the historical context, language, themes, and influence on later literature and culture.

Religion

My experience with religion includes taking many religion classes in college, numerous other religion and scriptural classes, serving a full-time mission (as a certified preacher for almost two years), teaching church classes ranging from children's classes to adult Sunday School classes, and being interested in all faiths.

Study Skills

As an experienced tutor and college instructor, I have learned the importance of study skills to a student's success. Learning how to be a better student and study properly will help you to do better in all of your classes. I am excited to help students to learn and improve in order to reach their potential.
