I'm Kelly and I love everything about language. I became an avid reader at a young age, and it's stuck with me my entire life. My favorite stories are those that engage both intellect and emotions. And I love the infinite possibilities that come with constructing a good story. I'm honored to serve as a teacher and mentor to all my students!
I first started teaching and tutoring nearly 20 years ago, with elementary and middle school students, in reading, phonics, comprehension, and writing. I then went on to teach at the university level and in public programs for places like the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing at Arizona State University. I make my primary living as a book editor, but have always loved wearing my "teaching hat" and look forward to sharing my many years of practical and academic experience with the written word with my students.
