I am in the process of being certified for Early Childhood Education (birth-2nd grade) and Childhood Education (1st-6th grade). I have an extensive background in Elementary subjects and how to create fun, engaging, and effective lessons. I know how to differentiate within these subjects to meet the needs of all learners.
For higher learners, I was a writing tutor during my time in college. I love to write myself and my passion allows me to help others with writing. I have experience editing/proofreading essays, helping writers with grammar, organizing writing, and helping with ideas.
I was struggling with writing during my first year in college and Kelly helped me with all of my papers. Whether it was proofreading, figuring out how to organize my paper, or just working out ideas. There were times I came to her with a writing prompt and had absolutely no idea what to write or how to start and within an hour she would help me work through what to write. What I really love is how she won't just tell me what to fix or mark up my, she'll explain how to make it better so I know for next time and she points out what I do write. I have gotten many As thanks to Kelly!
Kelly is an excellent tutor! She helped my struggling first-grader with reading and phonics. My daughter hated reading and was beginning to hate school until Kelly created fun lessons. My daughter loves to read now and looks forward to working with Kelly.
I like to first talk to my new student or the student's parent to learn more about the student - their needs, strengths, interests, dislikes, learning styles, goals, school environment, and any other helpful information. From there I can create the best possible plan for my students in order to meet their needs. We will also work together to create a schedule.
