About Kiley


Bio

Hi! Hope you are doing as well as can be today.

I have almost 20 years of tutoring and mentoring experience, and my expertise is in college essays, SAT/ACT as well as algebra. However, getting good grades and success requires much more than just knowledge and strategies. It requires true motivation, a step-by-step plan, and support/accountability to ensure success is inevitable!

Hi! Hope you are doing as well as can be today.

I have almost 20 years of tutoring and mentoring experience, and my expertise is in college essays, SAT/ACT as well as algebra. However, getting good grades and success requires much more than just knowledge and strategies. It requires true motivation, a step-by-step plan, and support/accountability to ensure success is inevitable!

TUTORING

At first, I tutored middle and high school students primarily in writing and algebra, but branched out to help students with whichever subjects they needed, even teaching one student all of her classes for her 11th and 12th grade years (as part of an alternative high school option).

SAT/ACT

When I discovered my love for SAT/ACT tutoring, I began working full-time for an international test prep company, where I taught summer intensive SAT and ACT classes, as well as one-on-one and small group programs throughout the year. Over the past decade, I have become highly trained and experienced with these tests, but began to discover that to get high scores, you need more than just knowledge.

When you not only know how to strategically approach the test questions and practice, but also feel the energizing fuel of an infinite supply of motivation, you have the power to keep scoring higher and higher until you reach your goals. All the while, actually enjoying yourself! I would love to show you what I know.

COLLEGE ESSAYS

Just as much as I love test prep, I love helping with college essays! I am so inspired and energized when I get to know a student on a more real level, and help them produce the best essays they possibly can.

I have run essay workshops, worked with students one-on-one, and run college application courses, helping me fine-tune my approach to ensure each student essay is authentic and memorable. That's what college admissions wants to see.

I have been tutoring algebra since 2007. I have not only helped students with algebra homework assignments and taught one-on-one algebra courses, but I have also tutored algebra as part of SAT, ACT, CAHSEE, SSAT, and ISEE math test prep programs, and it's one of my absolute favorite subjects to teach. I have worked with all types of learners, including plenty of students who claim not to be "math people," or say that their brain simply doesn't comprehend math topics. But once we go step by step together, and I break down any confusing concepts into friendly smaller components, students can see that, really, they can be good at math. Since algebra is such significant foundation of math, I love being able to help students feel confident at this stage so that they continue confidently, and with eagerness, into the higher levels of math. So, let's do some algebra!

Kiley was patient and helpful

He helped my son with the English portion of SAT's, which he was struggling with. He was thorough and explained everything, and had an easy and non-intimidating manner. Looking forward to more sessions!
