About Kelsey
Aspiring musician and music instructor, I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Professional Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to learn songs of their choice while working on their skills every week. I focus on musicianship, intonation, tone production, technique and interpretation. Every student has a unique timbre, and I want to hone that voice and make it shine. I can help any student to sing with confidence and great performance ability.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I have two decades of classical training as my forefront and love to play contemporary styles as well. I help students with sightreading, music theory, ear training, and to focus on the styles of music they want to play.

My passion is rock music, but I enjoy teaching all styles of music and all
ow my students to be as open-minded as possible. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your full potential as a musician!

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have 15+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and training. Currently, I am enjoying managing two small businesses while teaching students part time.

All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help ALL my clients reach their goals!

A couple years ago, I returned to San Diego after living in Peru for several years where I taught English as a second language. My students ranged from adult business people and academicians to primary and secondary school students. I really needed to utilize different teaching methods depending on each student’s needs. Some students wanted more business-related conversation, so I had to be able to teach business principles in marketing, communication,
logistics, interviewing, and so much more. Critical thinking was an area that I pushed my business students to improve. Other students needed to work on the basics of grammar, reading, and writing, and we had a lot of fun in class, whether going through the interactive lesson or improvising by playing fun games to emphasize thinking on their feet in another language.

The feedback I often received from my Peruvian students, as well as my students in Mexico and the U.S., was that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they wanted to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience!

Before I left for Peru, I worked at St Vincent de Paul Village (part of Father Joe's Villages) in downtown San Diego. There I focused on Health Education. I built the Villages' first Health Education department and helped start its innovative Health & Wellness program. As part of these two programs, I taught homeless and low-income adults with and without learning disabilities, as well as children from preschoolers to high school students. Teaching such a wide variety of students how to improve their health while living in sometimes precarious situations without much income or stability pushed me to think creatively and come up with memorable ways to engage the students and help them apply what they had learned in their daily routine.

In high school, I took all AP and college prep classes. I went to a liberal arts college in Virginia where I focused on social studies and biology. I spent a few years training business people in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, as well as presentation techniques. In grad school, I specialized in applied anthropology and public health. During that time, I tutored students in web design. In between, I've worked in Communications and Training in international health and development, so I have a lot of experience to bring to teaching.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I'm writing two textbooks to be used in my Spanish classes. I've also written several academic articles published online. I love traveling, cats, and learning!

Ms. McKinney was working as a 1:1 Para with her student who is a 6th grader. She has helped him to be more independent during math. She is doing this by stepping back and not being by his side. It allows him to be held accountable for his actions or lack of. She has encouraged him to raise his hand when he needs help as well as keeps his attention on the teacher and not on her. Untimately, her goal as a 1:1 Para is to get your student to be indenedent and not rely on the aid. She has done this very well to the point that her student no longer needed an aid (1:1 Para).
