About Kelley

I believe math and science are fun, challenging puzzles to be solved! I instill this love of math and science in my students, supporting and inspiring them as they discover and learn. In addition to tutoring, I serve as a substitute teacher at Austin Discovery School, and I bring their tenets of positive reinforcement, patience, and respect to each child I work with. I have four years teaching and tutoring experience, and I'm also a mother of twin 4th graders. I love being right there 'in it' with children, helping them to their 'A-ha!' moment! I excel at easing anxiety with math, science, and testing.

I am currently pursuing my teaching degree with emphases in elementary and middle school math and science. I have a 4.0 average in math for elementary and middle school and an overall average of 3.8. I am also a member of Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in the field of education. With four years of teaching and tutoring experience, I've become adept at identifying a student's unique strengths and needs, and I tailor my sessions to ensure that every child I work with is allowed to be challenged and feel success!

I utilize hands-on manipulatives in my sessions; this gives children (and parents!) a deeper understanding of the math behind those numbers on the page. I also bring the outside in when appropriate during science sessions when the student would benefit from an alternative to the flat page.

I have a flexible schedule to accommodate today's families. Contact me to help your children get excited about learning and become confident in math and science!
