Bio

Hello there!

I am a graduate student at the University of Utah studying English. I love writing and literature, but if you struggle to love these subjects, no worries. I can help make them rewarding and painless. My teaching philosophy is to meet students on their level, and to differentiate my plans to meet individual wants and needs.

Hello there!

I am a graduate student at the University of Utah studying English. I love writing and literature, but if you struggle to love these subjects, no worries. I can help make them rewarding and painless. My teaching philosophy is to meet students on their level, and to differentiate my plans to meet individual wants and needs.

My teaching experience includes working at a tutoring center in my hometown of Las Vegas, serving as a Writing Colleague and a Writing Fellow at HWS Colleges, and substitute teaching. I am passionate about preparing high school students for college level writing, as well as working with college students to make the writing process productive and successful.

If you are a student looking to improve your writing (at any age or any level), then I am the tutor for you. Come to me at any stage in the writing process -- planning, drafting, revising, you name it! -- and I will be happy to help take your writing to the next level. Whether you have a big paper due for school, or are hard at work on a college application essay, I would love to help.

Sound good? Send me a message! I'm looking forward to talking with you.

I have training on vocabulary development from previous employment, and from my own study experience. In college, it was essential for me to memorize definitions of new words. I can help students find a learning strategy that will help them commit new words and their meanings to memory.

Prompt, and simplify things easier.

Kelly taught English to my high school daughter Kayla . She understood the lessons provided to my child and explain the research assignment to her in easy and effective way. Were very appreciative.

Nikki, 4 lessons with Kelly

Patient and positive with my son

My son is in 6th grade and needs to work on expanding his essays with more detail. She worked through a book report with him, helping and suggesting improvements while never putting down his ideas, etc. My son was very happy with her also. We will continue working with her.

Great and affordable tutor!

Kelly assisted me in going over an essay for a college transfer application. She helped me clarify some key points in my paper, organize it to flow better, and made helpful suggestions. I think she is an affordable tutor for those who may not have enough money to spend $100 for an hour long session. Regardless of price, she is a great tutor and I recommend her!

Stephanie, 1 lesson with Kelly

Very knowledgeable!

Kelly is awesome! She helped with polishing my son's essay. She was really good at guiding him to come up with better words/ expressions. Also learned some grammatical points in an effective way. Very professional!

Parent

Kelly was able to guide my daughter and accomplish all of her goals and more. We will defiantly be calling her back! A+++ We hire a lot of tutors and my daughter said that Kelly has helped her the most and she was very excited about her next project with her.

Excellent!

Thanks for your kindness in explaining fundamental concepts. I am looking forward to learning more with every section, not only how to write better but also using that knowledge when I talk.
