About Kelly

I am a 2nd grade teacher in San Antonio Independent School District where I teach reading, writing, math, science and social studies in accordance to the Texas State Curriculum. I graduated from Duke University with degrees in Biology and Education. I have studied the Hill Center's Reading Achievement Program which teaches reading intervention strategies for struggling readers. Prior to teaching in SAISD, I tutored and worked as a teaching assistant extensively in Durham Public Schools for four years with students grades PreK through 8th in all subject areas. As a biology major at Duke I have completed coursework in collegiate level math and science courses including biology, chemistry and physics and as a private tutor have worked many hours with high school students in math and science. I am a firm believer that learning should be fun and I enjoy more than ever passing that joy and love for learning on to my students.

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.

Chemistry

I have taken chemistry for two years in high school: Honors Chemistry and AP Chemistry. I received a 5 on my AP Chemistry exam and a 700 on my SAT Chemistry Subject Test. Also I took an additional year of General Chemistry at Duke this fall and received an A in the course.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a 2nd grade teacher right here in San Antonio I am well trained in what is expected of elementary students K-6 in the state of Texas. I have at my disposal a wealth of resources in reading and math to help diagnose students' abilities and meet them where they are at. I studied elementary education at Duke University and during my time in college worked for three years as a teaching assistant at Central Park Elementary School in Durham, NC. I have worked with students K-5 in math and reading. In the subject of reading I have helped teach student how to read through improving fluency, phonics, and reading comprehension. In the subject of math I have worked with students on fractions, decimals, adding, subtracting, multiplication, division and problem solving.
