About

I have extensive experience teaching. I homeschooled three children for over 10 years and taught in public school for two years. I hold a Master's Degree in Psychology which is very useful in relating to students and helping them with issues interfering with their ability to learn. I teach K-12 students and also provide mentoring services.

My daughter had the privilege of being in Ms. Keays homeroom class at Mason Classical Academy where she taught Life Skills. The formal lessons she taught were invaluable, but what my daughter appreciated most about Ms. Keay was the genuine love for teaching that emanates from her. Her smile and positivity are truly infectious. Ms. Keay goes out of her way to know her students individually and encourages them to succeed in her class and in all aspects of their lives. She is a positive role model for her students and, for those who maintain contact with her, becomes a mentor as well.

My son was in her class when he was in kindergarten. She was a TA at her school. I got to know her, not only as his teacher, but as a coworker who also worked at the school with her. Her personality caught my attention. She always had a smile on her face and I
Saw how much she loves to help kids and saw that she was very understanding, caring and patient with them. She meets them where they are and never makes them feel like they cant. As a tutor she will be able to work one on one with your child and be able to do more for them. I think she is a great teacher, mentor and my son still remembers her and smiles when he sees her. When she was a sub at our schools all the students who had her, would run up to her and welcome her back. For other students and as well as my son to feel happy when they see a teacher, to me shows that she is a special person.

Amazing class! The way she teaches is very engaging and well worded. She makes it easy to follow along and understand what she is saying, which I believe is fundamental for teaching a good class as well getting your ideas or lesson across. Its easy to follow along and it feels like shes talking face-to-face with you. I dont think life skills are taught enough in schools to our kids these days, and classes like these are quite nearly rare gems to find. Definitely an educational experience, 10/10 recommended! Thank you, Ms. Keay!

Frequently asked questions

I use humor to establish rapport with students first.  It would be important for the student to feel comfortable before we begin the lessons.  I introduce myself and the student can ask questions if they have any and we would go from there.  

I am a military veteran and my training and experiences allowed me to excel in leadership skills, character, and various life skills.  I have an MA in Psychology and I have experience working as a caseworker and counselor.  I also homeschooled my family for 10 years and taught in public school for two years.  I am well versed in social media so I am knowledgeable of today's trends. I am one class away from my Chartered Financial Consultant designation.  Did I mention I am also running for the school board?  Yes, I am that awesome!

My hourly rate starts at $25.  This includes my motivational booklets, exercises, mentoring, career counseling, and proof-reading.  

I began teaching while living in Germany. I homeschooled our family for 10 years. Living in Europe was incredible and enabled us to travel to various countries while learning at the same time.  The world is the best classroom!

I homeschooled my family from grade school all the way up until college. I further instructed at Mason Classical Academy for two years.  I have worked with students from age four up to age 19.  I have also worked with children with different learning styles and abilities.  One has to learn to adjust the teaching, depending on the needs of the students.  You must meet students where they are and work up from there.

I am currently running for the school board.  It is a lot of work but, I love it!  I was hired as a board member for a private company.  I am a guest speaker and spokesperson for non-profit organizations.  I was filmed in a video to guide students on bridging the gap between education and technology.

My best advice is to make sure you speak with the teacher to make sure it is a good fit before hiring the teacher. In addition, ask the age group they have worked with and what impacting activities they have done to motivate students.

Students can first ask when the teacher is available and set up an appointment to share their needs or concerns.  Students can have their short-term goals in mind and ask teachers what steps are required to accomplish them.
