About Kelly

I began my teaching career almost 20 years ago and I love teaching more each day! I have spent my entire career working with first and second graders. I also spent 6 years working as a literacy coach.

I taught a college level class to other primary teachers, modeled lessons, and observed and coached the teachers. I learned so much through those years. I have found, though, that my joy comes from working with students directly! I currently teach 2nd grade self contained. I teach all subjects and love it!

A few summers ago, I began private tutoring as a way to earn some extra money. What I gained was so much more than a little extra spending money. I learned how much fun it is to work one on one with a student and to watch them grow as a result of the extra attention they have received.

I have always loved teaching math which many of my colleagues found surprising because I was seen as a reading specialist. I enjoying breaking down a difficult concept for a student and then building it back. It is important to me that my students understand why they so something in math not just how to do it.

I have extensive experience working with emerging readers as well as fluent readers. I work hard to diagnosis exactly what part of the reading process is causing the learner difficulty. I have a strong understanding of how the phonics process relates to reading. I would love the opportunity to work with your child and help them develop the confidence and skills needed to be successful.

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.

Phonics

I was trained as a Literacy Coach through Ohio Stare University as a part of the Literacy Collaborative project. I am a certified Phonics Lessons trainer (Fountas & Pinnell). I have taught developing readers for 20 years.
