About Kyla

Hi there! My name is Kyla and I am a credentialed teacher who has had the privilege and joy of teaching math at the elementary level for the last 10 years. One of my favorite things is helping a child embrace this subject and really believe he/she is a "math kid." What I love about math is that there are a variety of ways to get to a solution and the fun part about math is exploring those paths. Everyone brings special skills and ideas to the table, sometimes it's just a matter of giving them a different way to get to that information. What's great about the tutoring setting is that we can use different methods of learning and build on the strengths already present. Math is everywhere and the more a child can see how it connects to his/her life, the more fun it can be. I look forward to helping fuel a passion for math in your kiddo! Hi there!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

After attaining my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the Pennsylvania State University I spent 4 years teaching 5th grade in the Chicago Public School system. After that, I moved to Los Angeles and taught 5th and 6th grade math at a private elementary school, where I also served as the math specialist.

Prealgebra

As a 6th grade math teacher, much of my curriculum was spent preparing my students to place into advanced pre-algebra. I taught my students how to solve for a variable, create algebraic equations, and work with integers. We also explored slope by using function machines and plotting the points on a coordinate graph. All of these skills are taught using concrete and/or pictorial representations first and then moving into the abstract.
