Kelli - Reading Tutor

JRCP Certified Teacher/Tutor
Location: South Ogden, UT

Kelli has always loved reading and was always surrounded by books. The only thing that equals her love of reading is the joy of unlocking the world for a child by helping them become proficient readers as well. Her teaching and tutoring background began with homeschooling her own children for 20+ years and teaching and tutoring other homeschool students in various subjects. After easily teaching her first four children to read she found that her youngest just didn’t catch on to it as easily, in fact it was very challenging. Having a dyslexic child was a completely new experience and she endeavored to learn all she could to help him. In this pursuit she found Joyfully Read and eagerly trained to become a tutor for her son. Since then she has tutored other struggling readers. She loves the mountains and the beach, flowers and family – all perfect settings to enjoy and share a good book.

What more could a mother, father or caring teacher want for her/his child or student? Success, fun, ease, retention, amazing results, good memories of reading together in a relaxed, positive atmosphere…and more.


“My 5 year old had been struggling with her phonics lessons all through kindergarten. And she hated her lessons! After a few weeks with Joyfully Read!™ preschool reading class she was asking to play the games, sing the songs and practice reading.”

“I was a 65 year old man who had a low second grade level reading capacity.  I was always careful not to let anyone know about my situation.  I was always on guard so no one would find out because I knew I would be embarrassed and humiliated…I have learned things I was never taught in school.  Learning to read has changed my life because I now can read and spell better.  I feel like I can now fill out an application, if I need to, read the newspaper or a complete book, and feel good about myself.  I would recommend this course to all ages who are struggling with their reading.  JoyFully Read!™ is very professional and encouraging.”  (E.T., A 65 year old happy reader)
