About Kalli

Hi my name is Kalli and I am currently a first grade teacher. I love teaching because I love to see the growth a student can make within a short period of time and the growing confidence that comes with it. I have worked as a classroom teacher, small group instructor, camp counselor, and tutor. All of these experiences have helped me understand the environments that work best for students and how different students learn. I try my best to teach in different ways and styles to fit the needs of my students. I am able to do Kindergarten prep for students entering Kindergarten in the fall and reading/writing/math with grades PreK-3rd.

I have a masters in Elementary Education and I have a teaching endorsement in reading and in English Language Learners. I have taught vocabulary to students who barely speak English and I have taught more complex vocabulary as it comes across in literature. I have found that younger students "soak" up as many new words as they can and love to practice using them in different ways.

I have worked with students in grades K-6 in every subject. I understand the big gaps between grade levels and I am able to help fill those gaps. I am able to create interventions so that a student can learn a skill that he or she has been struggling with.

Thank you for reading my profile and I hope that you will contact me!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
