About Kelsey

Do you think you are a "bad writer"? Is picking up a book the last thing you want to do for fun?

Well, as a professional educator with over seven years of classroom experience, trust me when I say, you are not alone! So many students enter my classroom dreading the blank page. For years, people have told them they are bad writers, bad readers, and bad students. This is why my first job as a writing teacher is instilling confidence. The vast majority of my students are far better writers than they think and have intelligent things to say about worldly issues. Pointing out what students do well is just as helpful as pointing out what they need to work on, but so many instructors forget this.

My goal is to break down writing into manageable parts – thesis statements, organization, supportive evidence, and grammar – and provide specific tools to master any and all writing assignments. I specialize in writing of all kinds including creative, academic, technical, research, science, and business. I am also thoroughly versed in world literature, reading comprehension, and academic research.

My credentials? I currently teach College Writing I and College Writing II at Texas State University where I graduated with a master’s degree in creative writing. I’ve worked in multiple university writing centers (tutoring on a one-on-one basis), taught creative writing to public schools students of all ages, have a decade’s worth of publishing experience, and am currently serving as the Writer-In-Residence at the Katherine Anne Porter Literary Center. I’ve been published in The Austin Chronicle, USA Today, African American Review, Sagebrush Review, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, and innumerable other literary journals and magazines.

I’d love to teach you how to love your writing, and get the grades you want!

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.

Spanish

I have taken Spanish classes on a regular basis since I was 5 years old. In college, I took the four required language credits in Spanish, as well as additional Spanish literature classes, and studied abroad for 6 months in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Since then, I've taught in multiple bilingual classrooms and published a book of poetry in Spanish. I regularly translate poetry from Spanish to English as part of my scholarly work at the university.

Awesome tutoring experience!!

Wow, Kelsey took great care and patience with our lesson. I am currently enrolled in Masters courses and needed help with a technical writing project. She came through for me! She was very flexible with time and location. Her attention to detail, warm demeanor, and patience made me feel confident in writing my paper. I received an A on my paper!!
