I taught as a full-time classroom teacher from the 1999-2011. Since then, I have been working with students privately.
I grew up in Florida, but have since lived in the Caribbean, Connecticut, Hawai'i, and now--London.
I gather as much info as I can about the student as a learner, his/her interests, level of motivation, etc. I tailor my lessons to suit the individual student. I favor an inquiry-based learning approach.
“Kelly was a wonderful tutor and mentor for [my son]. Kelly’s tutoring skills and support with helping [him] to prepare for the verbal portions of the SAT and his application and supplemental essays was exceptional. Kelly’s friendly and supportive approach brought the best out in [student] and gave him writing and thought processing skills he will carry through the rest of his life. She knowledgeably guided him (and me!) through the US application process. As we have lived in London and have little experience with US schools and the application process, her advice and guidance, even in narrowing down our school choices, was incredibly helpful. She is a lovely, professional and personable young lady. Through the process, I am proud to say that Kelly has become a friend.”

“Kelly did a wonderful job preparing our twin 13 year old boys for the ISEE test here in London when we learned we were moving back to the USA after 10 years. The boys had attended English schools throughout our stay, so they were completely unfamiliar with US standardised tests. Kelly met them, assessed where they needed help, and developed a thoughtful action/lesson/homework plan for each boy (they are very different). Over a few short weeks their confidence levels and their ISEE practice scores improved markedly. In the end, they both did exceedingly well on their ISEEs and got into all the schools to which they applied! We think the world of Kelly and her team.”

“My children follow the French curriculum and will need to present the ISEE in order to apply to US schools. I decided to start coaching my eldest and was very lucky to meet Kelly who has been from the beginning very reassuring and positive. Her lessons are thorough, fun and instructive, always with the objective to give the student the skills needed to tackle the ISEE. Kelly is a support that I highly recommend to anyone wanting his children to progress and succeed. Not only will you have a gifted teacher but also a lovely person!”

“From the moment I reached out to USApplicants, the service I/we have received has been nothing short of outstanding. Kelly Clement responded to my email request immediately and professionally. In my opinion, Kelly possesses all the attributes I was looking for in a tutor: (1) professional (2) experienced (course material and teaching children) (3)
