About Kelli

I've been teaching 3rd and 4th graders for the past 18 years, but have experience teaching students of all grades! I have taught small groups and tutored children Kindergarten through High School in everything from learning letters, handwriting, mastering math facts, to geometry! I absolutely love being able to take something that seems difficult, and showing students an easier, or different way of thinking about it, so they can be successful!
I have Bachelor Degree's in Business Administration and Elementary Education. I've worked for a large pharmaceutical company, plastic surgeon, lumber yard, and coached high school cheerleaders.  Those jobs were fun, and gave me a great deal of experience, that helps me bring a real-world perspective to my teaching!
