About Kelly

I am a Marquette University grad with a committed love for Milwaukee. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Social Welfare & Justice and a minor in Psychology. I also took two semesters worth of Business credits at Marquette, where I took higher-level math courses (Finite Math, Calculus, and Business Stats). I spent one year working for the Public Defenders Office, then two years for a private law firm, before settling into my current position as a GED Program Coordinator at Literacy Services of Wisconsin. All of my volunteer experience has been in a school setting - as a teaching assistant or administrative help - and after years of debating the pros and cons of law school, I decided I want to teach. I've been told I am a person of varied interests... Anyway, one trait that has remained consistent is my enthusiasm for learning.

My position at Literacy Services of Wisconsin has solidified my enthusiasm for the learning process. It is hard to feel uninspired when I am surrounded by adults who strive every day to overcome life's challenges and pursue a GED diploma. It is not uncommon to see our students enter the program at a 5th grade Language level. And to bring these students up to a 12th grade level in each of the four tests subjects is truly a remarkable, and rewarding, experience. Our program is set up as one-on-one tutoring which is arguably the most effective method of learning. Therefore, with the skills I have learned at Literacy Services, I plan to reach even further out into the community to find others in need of personalized tutoring.

Aside from work experience, my other interests include getting creative with cooking, gardening, reading, and occasional DIY projects. I also love cats AND dogs.

First of all, I just love math. I find it exciting to have a problem in front of me and find the solution the simplest way possible. Almost all of my students have at one point said to me, "Wow, you really love math." And I realize that some math concepts are not easily understood, so I have developed lots of different approaches to make sense of the problem at hand.

It's important that each person finds their "voice" when writing, so we are not producing bland and monotonous writing. Writing should be interesting, and keep the reader engaged and inspired. I like to always have a thesaurus on deck.

So if you like my style, contact me to set up some tutoring sessions! I am available most afternoons after 2pm. I am open to answering any questions you may have about my tutoring experience or philosophy. Looking forward to hearing from you!
