The close of this summer will ring in the close of my first official year of teaching. I have worked this past school year as a Special Education teacher, supporting students in both Math and English courses. I worked with students in grades 9-12. My approach is simple and straightforward: determine where the academic need exists and develop a plan that targets the specific skill. By focusing on small skills in each tutoring session, students will have an opportunity to finely develop their skills as learners in multiple contents rather than just in Math or English. This type of learning development will allow students to be impacted by my tutoring sessions during and beyond the academic school year.

I’m lucky to have a diverse educational resume of my own. I’ve attended California State University Northridge where I studied and obtained a Bachelors of Arts in English. The coursework I completed at CSUN helped me to discover that I am passionate about teaching. Specifically, I am passionate about teaching students the joys, wonders, and mysteries that can be uncovered through reading. Following this college experience, I continued my education at Loyola Marymount University. Here, I have completed coursework that has obtained me a Special Education Teaching Credential. Learning about and working in Special Education has helped to show me just how important it is to provide an accessible and individualized pathway for students to navigate the curriculum.

I am an avid scholar of English, both literature and language. As an English major in college, I read texts both old and new. I’ve analyzed countless of readings and written hundreds of pages on said literature. I spend a good deal of my downtime with my head buried in a book, either for fun or to determine if that text might fit into my English curriculum for the fall semester. As a credential student, I’ve spent this past year learning about how the brain processes spoken and written language and the implications of that processing. I’ve worked alongside students who have a range of learning disabilities and have helped them to grow their confidence in this area.

PSAT study help - Clear communication, flexible teaching style - Excellent Tutor

We have had one lessons with Kayla but she was really helpful. My daughter is talking a PSAT prep course and was having issues with her homework. Since it is a summer course they go so fast, it is difficult to master the subjects, especially those you haven't really learned yet. My daughter kept the question she didn't understand and that is where Kayla stepped in. We have already scheduled our next session!
