Kelly's dedication and commitment to her students is palpable, and on top of that she is patient, kind, and wicked smart. She will craft a personalized plan to make sure you meet your goal, whether it's getting ready for that big test or ensuring individual and on-going support in a challenging subject. Definitely highly recommended!Sep 17, 2019
Kelly is a great teacher. She is willing to personalize the lessons and work at a comfortable pace catered to each student. It is evident she has a vast knowledge of the language, as well as enthusiastic and encouraging to teach. I am excited to learn more!Sep 18, 2019Verified
Kelly seems to love teaching French. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter, and is a patient and kind teacher. I have found her tutoring to be extremely helpful.Sep 12, 2019
Kelly is wonderful! I don't feel like I am a natural language learner, and yet she is so patient with me, both as I work on my writing and my speaking in French. She is adaptable and willing to provide the support I need (even things like mini-flashcards with names of household items I can - and do! - tape on items in my house), and I appreciate the flexibility she has with my scheduling. I highly recommend her!Sep 5, 2019
I had a great experience working with Kelly! I had taken some French in the past and wanted to refresh my knowledge and continue learning, and she quickly identified where I was in the learning process and what strategies worked best for helping me learn. She was really prepared for each session and always made sure to incorporate my individual questions into the lesson plan. I would highly recommend working with her!Sep 2, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?*The prices quoted are my average rates, but rates vary based on the details of the service you're looking for (e.g., short-term vs. long-term, learning goals, travel time, etc.). *I offer an initial meeting at no charge, so that we can discuss your goals, get to know each other, and make a plan for how to move forward. *I am able to offer sliding scale rates on a limited basis - I believe in making education available to everyone, so if you need tutoring services but aren't sure about the price, please let me know and I'll work with you if I am able to.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?During our initial conversation (no fee), I like to learn about the potential student's background, learning goals, and learning preferences. For students wishing to learn a second language, I do an informal OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview) and, if needed, a baseline reading and/or writing assessment; and for students wishing to improve skills in their native language, I do a baseline assessment of the student's reading, writing, and/or speaking abilities, according to the area(s) that the student wishes to improve. In addition to answering any questions students may have for me (choosing the right teacher is important!), I propose an individualized plan of study based on the student's needs and goals. That way, students can obtain all of the information they need in order to decide how they want to move forward with their learning.
