About Kayvon


Bio

I'm Kayvon! I currently attend Amherst College, where as a Psychology major I hold a 3.8 GPA. As a liberal arts college I have learned how to critically think from the world's top professors. From being asked to condense complex environmental issues into short, succinct papers to generating linear algebra proofs from a genuine understanding, I have seen the benefits of a well-rounded education. As Amherst I have greatly benefited from the class sizes and small student-to-teacher ratios,...

I'm Kayvon! I currently attend Amherst College, where as a Psychology major I hold a 3.8 GPA. As a liberal arts college I have learned how to critically think from the world's top professors. From being asked to condense complex environmental issues into short, succinct papers to generating linear algebra proofs from a genuine understanding, I have seen the benefits of a well-rounded education. As Amherst I have greatly benefited from the class sizes and small student-to-teacher ratios, which is why I am excited to bring individualized lesson plans to my tutoring here on Wyzant's platform! I like to create loose lesson plans at first in order to understand where a student is struggling. After I cater lessons to how you learn, are you a visual learner, like me, and prefer images and videos when engaging with material? Or maybe that's not your thing and your prefer text on a slide deck. After each lesson plan I provide individual exercises which will always be adjusted based off a student's ability and needs.
I have had the great opportunity to work for two tutoring organizations while at my time at Amherst. The first, called the Northampton Education Center, is a school that helps educate adults who have not attained their GEDs. Students range from an inability to read to on the cusp of mastering Algebra 2 and in my time working there I have worked with each student, regardless of their skills or abilities, in helping them improve towards their goal of a high school diploma. Through my work there, I have helped formulate lesson plans, created worksheets, and administered one-on-one sessions with students. While working for the center, I also have a job on campus, Reader to Reader, where I tutor students online in reading. After Reader to Reader students from K-8 will choose a book at their level, I work alongside them by posting on an online forum, and help them improve their comprehension and confidence in tackling more challenging novels. Through Reader to Reader, I have learned how to translate my in-person
