About Kelly

I have experience teaching grades K-12, in a variety of content areas. I have done a wide variety of substitute teaching over the years and have worked as a music specialist. I also have an education background, with a Bachelor's degree in K-12 music education. I have worked tutoring students in reading at the elementary level. In addition, I achieved a score in the top 10% for the undergraduate university writing exam that I was required to take before graduation.
For the last three years, I have been going to school to become a sign language interpreter. I will be graduating from a program that has an emphasis in educational sign language interpreting this June. I have had extensive classes in American Sign Language, Manually Coded English, Deaf Culture, Linguistics, and Discourse. I have also completed over 120 hours of practicum assignments interpreting for Deaf and Hard of Hearing clients in a variety of professional, educational, and community settings.

I have a very solid background in elementary math, having taken classes through calculus level in high school. I have also interpreted math classes and have an extensive range of math vocabulary that I have studied.

I am completing an accredited interpreter training program. I have over 3 years of classes in American Sign Language, in addition to specific classes in interpreting. I have tutored numerous students in all levels of sign language as part of my program requirement. I have also completed and passed the Educational Interpreter Written Assessment and will be taking the performance assessment this July.

I am very well read and have taken college classes in writing and literature. I also completed 4 years of high school English and had a superior score on the ACT and SAT verbal sections.

Please contact me if you are interested in tutoring. I am comfortable working with a variety of age levels and am able to plan clear and concise lessons that will help you achieve your academic goals.
