About Kelli

Hello, my name is Kelli. I have been an educator in both private and public school settings for six years. Both settings afforded me the opportunity to work closely with students of different backgrounds, abilities and grade levels. I was educated at Norfolk State University with Bachelor and Masters degrees in early childhood and elementary education.

In 2011, I decided to start my own private tutoring business. My goal as a tutor is to provide academic support to elementary school students through structured learning sessions, hands-on activities and technology. I also seek to make available quality tutoring services that are individually tailored to each student, thoroughly engrossed in technology and influenced by the Virginia Standards of Learning.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from Norfolk State University with my BA in Elementary Education and a MA in Pre-Elementary Education. I taught third grade for two years and Sixth grade grammar/writing and reading skills. During those years, I tutored students after school. My tutoring methods: pre-assessment of skill, remediation or presentation of skill and post- assessment. Activities are varied based on subject: hands-on, multi sensory, interactive technology and worksheets, etc.

Handwriting

I graduated from Norfolk State University with my BA in Elementary Education and a MA in Pre-Elementary Education. I taught third grade for two years and Sixth grade grammar/writing and reading skills. I use multisensory approaches to handwriting and use some of the handwriting methods presented Montessori learning.

Phonics

I graduated from Norfolk State University with my BA in Elementary Education and a MA in Pre-Elementary Education. I taught third grade for two years (Chesapeake Bay Academy and Portsmouth Public Schools) and Sixth grade grammar/writing and reading skills. (Chesapeake Bay Academy) During those years, I tutored students after school. My tutoring methods: pre-assessment of skill, remediation or presentation of skill and post- assessment. Activities are varied based on subject: hands-on, multi sensory, interactive technology and worksheets, etc.

I was trained in the Orton-Gillingham multisensory approach to reading instruction at Chesapeake Bay Academy. This method specializes in phonemic awareness which helps the student to hear, identity and manipulate sounds in words. This method builds on the other elements of phonological awareness. I used this method in the classroom and with some of the students I tutor.
