I have tutored all types of math since 2007. I have experience with enrichment, remedial, and students with disabilities. I make sure to equip my students with the correct mathematical methodologies so they can do any problem in multiple ways. Thinking about math from every angle leads to a deeper understanding, less careless errors, and confidence. I tutor students in their home, at a meeting location, and online.
I love helping people and tutoring is rewarding. When a student's confidence builds I feel so proud!
Kelsey has been an excellent tutor for my son with ADHD and dyslexia. She has come up with specific lesson plans for him, and has worked to figure out how to best work with him while also managing his ADHD. My son has progressed in math beautifully because of Kelsey.
First I need to assess what the student knows and what they don't know. I create a plan for which topics we will cover in what order.
I have a bachelors of science from James Madison University where I double majored in math and physics and minored in business. I interned with NASA in 2012.
I charge $40 per hour for pre algebra and below and I charge $50 per hour for algebra and above. If my drive is over 10 miles one way I charge a flat driving fee of $10 per session.
I have always loved helping others. At a young age I started volunteering and eventually I became an exhibit guide at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Soon after I began tutoring math. My life long passion for math led me to tutor at an athletics center, a math help center, a mathnasium, and at the department of rehab.

One of my students was struggling in math mainly due to lack of confidence. She would over think every step to the point of making up her own rules. After months of reviewing basic skills, something clicked. She suddenly showed me how she could do the material from her course easily. The material was well above the level of our basic skills review. I was so proud!
ASK QUESTIONS! I love when students can narrow down exactly what they are struggling with (this is a skill that I can teach by the way). Also, tell me when you have no idea what I'm saying. I promise I can explain it in a different way!
What materials and resources do you have? How much time do you spend studying math each day? What do you think is your biggest struggle in math? How are your study skills?
