About Kayla


Hello. My name is Kayla. I have grown up in Colorado, mostly near Colorado Springs. I have recently moved to Canon City this past summer. I have have always been in education whether guest teaching, in elementary, in early childhood or volunteering with church. I have been in whole classrooms and also in intervention with small groups. I have a bachelors in elementary education with an endorsement in reading and a masters in special education. I have experience with infants through high school but elementary reading is a strength and my real passion.

I am looking for as many hours as may be needed and all that could be worked out. I am looking for clients in Canon City mostly, but willing to look at Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Penrose, Florence, Woodland Park, Cripple Creek or maybe other areas. I would be asking $25/ hour which could be discussed/negotiated. I believe in continuous communication and family involvement and would be keeping things very open and informal, while professional. I would take methods from the school and the students past that have worked and add my own knowledge and techniques, which I keep challenging but fun. I use assessment to drive instruction but do not like to teach to the test.

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.
