About Kendra

Hi, my name is Kendra and I have been involved in education, both in and out of schools for over 25 years. Beginning as a classroom assistant in a tuition-funded private school, I developed a love for helping students and learning how to assist them in achieving their greatest potential. From this training, I became confident enough to homeschool my own children. Through this 3-year experience, I realized how much I loved teaching and thus began my 10-year journey into substitute teaching. During this time, I had the opportunity to work with students from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Interactions with students occurred in a variety of settings including special needs classrooms, gymnasiums for physical education exercises and field trip outings to varied community educational venues. Growing from this was the realization of the importance of having a teacher who not only cares, but also has the time to invest in student’s success.
To further my skill set and become my best, I went to college and graduated Suma Cum Laude from Ashford University with my Bachelor’s degree in Education and Public Policy. Though my ultimate goal was to help create a better educational system that generates success for all, I felt led to begin helping individual students find their personal best through tutoring. Based upon my life’s voyage and personal love for reading, I found my passion!
My experiences as a tutor also lead me to discover I have a unique skill set for assisting adult learners as well as young students how to read, write, and comprehend to achieve their most impossible dreams. I have a silly sense of humor and this is reflected in my teaching to create an atmosphere of relaxation to promote learning and understanding. Additionally, I believe parents are an essential element to their child’s achievement, and I encourage as much parental involvement as available. To this end, I welcome suggestions and participation during all tutoring sessions.
It is easy to reach me and a response to your inquiry will be provided within 12 hours. Feel free to contact me today for a discounted consultation to begin discussing how together we can cross the finish line to victory!

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 have homeschooled my 3 children, ranging in grades from 1st to 7th grade levels in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has the most strict homeschooling laws of the 50 United States. I was responsible for every subject including physical education. I was their instructor for 3 years. If necessary, I can produce paper portfolios of their work for all three years, complete with teacher and school board certification write off.

I have been a teacher's assistant for kindergarten, first grade and fourth grade at St Luke's Lutheran School, a private educational institution in Cabot, Pennsylvania. My assistant career spanned 3 years.

I have been a substitute teacher for the Sevier County School system since 2001. I have substituted in grades K through 12, including special needs classrooms. If necessary, I can provide professional references from instructors, office staff and special areas individuals.

I also have some educational college credits in psychology, sociology,literature, history, computer technology, algebra,speech, economics and basic accounting.

I just recently (within the last month) graduated from college with my associate's degree and plan to return to obtain my bachelor's in elementary education, specifically, K-6th.

English

Recent graduate from Ashford University with bachelor's degree in Education where one of my electives was a children's literature class. It equipped me with many tools to help improve reading skills.

General Computer

I have taken 2 separate general computing classes. I believe I can help you tremendously save some time and frustration.

I also had a great personal interest in learning how to help myself learn these particular programs because when one is in college, they are essential to success.

I look forward to hearing from you.
