Hello! Are you looking for English, ESL, or executive function tutoring? Do you want a tutor who is fun, kind, knowledgeable and passionate about breaking concepts down into easy steps? I would love to help! I'm Kelly, and I founded Inspire Behavioral Learning to offer educational and behavioral health services to help students of all abilities achieve their dreams. Lessons are play-based for children, interactive and student-centered for all ages. We tailor lessons to the individual's choices. In one-on-one tutoring and/or small groups, students master skills in listening, speaking, reading, writing, pragmatics, critical thinking, executive functioning, and self-advocacy. We also help with Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) applied to other subjects. Another bonus is that we offer tips for parents who are homeschooling!

Who We Serve: Children, teens, and adults of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome, including beginning to advanced ESL; students with disabilities, such as autism, speech and language delays, and ADD/ADHD; students looking to improve self-confidence, organization and study skills, and homework completion; and students who are catching up on remedial skills or who seek mastery in advanced placement. Your child is paired with a dedicated tutor who guides learners toward mastering and applying skills both in academics and in life beyond the four walls of a classroom. 

Who We Are: All tutors have education and experience in Applied Linguistics, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and/or English and bring a well-rounded blend of knowledge and critical thinking; warmth and empathy; and action focus to help learners achieve their goals. I have twenty-two years of experience working with English and ESL learners and toddlers to adults with autism and other disabilities. I have a graduate-level TESOL certificate from UC Berkeley; an MA in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the science of learning; and a BA in Psychology with a minor in Education.

Location: Online tutoring via Skype, Google Hangouts, or Zoom is available for a discounted rate! Enjoy a free brief demo of online tutoring to see how convenient and easy it is. We serve multiple cities. Ordinarily, the tutor travels to you! You can look forward to continuing either online or in-person tutoring in the future.

Learn More: Feel free to visit my website at or contact me directly. I invite you to a free phone consultation. Let's discuss your needs and how we can help! I look forward to working with you. =)
