Hello, Students!

My name is Kindra, and I am new to WyzAnt!

I graduated from St. Mary's College, in Moraga, CA with a Bachelor of Arts degree, and a Minor in Music. During my college years at St. Mary's, I became a tutor, and helped many students with their coursework and test preparation. I then went on to run St. Mary's Tutorial Center with the Dean of Students and Tutorial Director. I did this for the remainder of my college education.

Since graduating, I have worked in the Entertainment Industry for over 20 years. I have helped develop two production/distribution companies; one I co-founded in Canoga Park, CA, called Cinema Libre Studio that produces and distributes features and documentaries. One of my roles at Cinema Libre, besides Operations, has been to read scripts and pick out those I felt would make a great acquisition to our company. I have also produced and directed one feature and have written, produced and directed one documentary project. Therefore, I have many years' experience in subjects such as reading, proofreading, grammar, writing, writing structure, creative writing, composing, and songwriting, as well as operational subjects, including, for example, Quickbooks, tax preparation, cash-flow allotment, public speaking, etc. I also speak Spanish, which has helped me immensely in every day living and business.

Now that I have a 7 year-old, I have found myself back in the classroom, this time with kids! There is nothing more rewarding than helping a student to succeed and then watching their progress and how it affects them emotionally, especially with small children and the demands that are being placed on them educationally. They are more confident and positive in how they view challenges, and that is a wonderful thing!

Thank you for your consideration.

Kindra R.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

It can be so stressful preparing for an ACT test. I know, I've been there. I will help you prepare for your exam by focussing on those issues which concern you most, and work with you to find ways to strengthen your skills so that you feel more confident about your abilities.

Composition (Music)

As your tutor in music composition, I will help you add the finishing touches to a piece, or help you develop a melody and or lyrics you have in your head, but can't quite articulate...then we will expand from there!

I have had much experience in music composition, and have recorded both my own music, as well as music for hire. I also have found that sometimes, collaboration is just the key ingredient one needs to help a musical piece come together and flow.

Elementary (K-6th)

My expertise in K-6th grade comes from having assisted in school classrooms, beginning with kindergarten, helping kids individually with reading, writing, and math. For example, I have experience in helping small children learn how to sound out words phonetically, then help them to memorize the meaning of that word by using it in a sentence. I have experience in tutoring elementary math skills, teaching a child double digit addition and subtraction, and helping them to show their work. I have also spent many hours helping my own child with her work outside of the classroom.

I will work with your child and help them to better understand their reading, writing, and math through repetition and memorization. I will also give you tricks to try to help with focus while studying. Most importantly, I will help them build confidence and feel better about themselves and their progress!

English

As a professional writer, my skills in English need to be proficient! Allow me to use my abilities and experience to help you improve in this subject! Whatever your weaknesses, we will work hard to help you build up your own skills and strengthen your abilities to succeed!

ESL/ESOL

English as a second language can be quite challenging, as there are many exceptions in terms of grammar use and structure.

I will assist you in improving your skills in both verbal and written use of the language. We can also use memorization with analogies as a tool. Whatever serves you best and will help you retain vocabulary and the spelling of words.

I believe that repetition and practice, practice and more practice are the keys to learning a new language.

Grammar

Correct grammar is so important in every day life and business. Proper grammar is essential for even the most simple tasks, such as writing a letter, or a job interview.

I can help you improve your grammar by working with you to develop proper sentence structure and usage, both verbally and in written form.

Being self-employed and also having written professionally, I have much experience in properly articulating the English language.

Microsoft Windows

Everyone in this day and age should know how to properly use a computer. It's especially helpful to have this knowledge if you are self-employed, and want to market your skills, or are looking for employment. I can assist you in learning Microsoft WIndows, so that you may use it to broaden your job search, or for any other task you need accomplished.

I have started two businesses and have extensive knowledge of Microsoft Windows, including Word, Internet, and Excel.

Proofreading

As a proofreader, I will be that extra pair of eyes, going over your documents, papers or homework, with a fine tooth comb; making sure that punctuation isn't missing, words are spelled correctly, and that your ideas come across clearly and effectively!

SAT Reading

I can help you prepare for your SAT exam! We will study sample questions, during which I will help you improve your reading comprehension and writing skills. Time is always of the essence when taking these exams, so we will work on helping you with the basic understanding of what is being asked of you and how to answer effectively and efficiently.

Songwriting

Are you a writer who would like to turn your poetry into a song? Songwriting is basically the ability to tell a story through music. As your tutor in this subject, I assist you in showing how you can take your words and put them to a melody that you create.

As a songwriter myself, I have written songs for hire that have been used for corporate events, family events, and video productions. I graduated from St. Mary's College, in Moraga, CA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1986, and a Minor in Music.

Spanish

I have tutored primarily beginning and intermediate Spanish for many years, starting back in college. Therefore, I am very familiar with the language, as I speak it myself and have traveled to South America three times!

We will work on improving the basic skills necessary understand Spanish, and from there, we will build up and strengthen all additional skills as you become more familiar with the Spanish language.

Speech

Learn how to convey your speech to an audience! Conquer public speaking jitters by believing in the conviction of what you want to convey to your audience!

As your tutor, I will assist you in first writing a speech you can be proud to deliver publicly. I will then show you how to use your voice and vocal inclinations, as well as your body language to help you memorize your speech, influence your audience and make your speech a powerful one. You will feel more confident once you have the tools you need to affect your audience.

Tax Preparation

Are you behind on your taxes? Do you have tons of receipts sitting around everywhere, but have no idea how to organize them, and have no idea of what is tax deductible and what is not?

I can help! I have continuously prepared taxes for nine companies. I have extensive knowledge of QuickBooks and Excel. Using my skills, I will help you prepare your taxes for your accountant, showing you how to itemize, and explaining what can be written off based on your employment status. It can be a long and tedious process, but with some knowledge in tax preparation, you will be able to get through those piles of paper with a lot less stress.

TOEFL

The TOFEL exam can be very challenging to one learning English as a second language. I can help you prepare for your exam. We will practice your reading, writing, comprehension skills, as well as your ability to write grammatically correct sentences. I want you to succeed and feel confident in being able to pass your TOEFL exam!

Writing

As a professional writer, strong knowledge of the English language and sentence structure is key! Therefore, I will use my abilities and experience to help you improve in the written language, and build on and strengthen your own skills.

As you improve, you will feel more confident and able to better understand this subject as the year progresses.
