About Kyle

Hello! I have five years of teaching and tutoring experience in classrooms from New York to Arizona to the Middle East. I recently finished teaching an intensive-Arabic program with high school students at the University of Chicago. My prior experience includes teaching English in the Peace Corps in Jordan, teaching with an adult literacy program in Washington, DC, and teaching in social studies and Arabic classrooms in the Chicago public schools. I have extensive experience one-on-one tutoring high school and college students in the following subjects: Western Civilization, Government & Politics, Literature, English, and SAT test prep. I enjoy working with students in all social studies/social sciences/humanities disciplines, including ESL, and am especially interested in working with students on writing and research projects and language study.

I have a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Chicago; my research and writing focused on the history of ideas, history and religion, and the history of the Middle East as world history. I also have extensive coursework in Arabic, in addition to the immersion learning experience that Peace Corps-Jordan provided me with. I have worked with beginner and intermediate-level Arabic students as a tutor and a classroom teacher.

My specific interests are history and language, but I enjoy teaching and tutoring many subjects. Whether working with students on history, writing, or English materials, the critical thinking, research, and argumentation skills that my students acquire through our sessions benefit them in all of their courses.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Best,
Kyle B

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Arabic

I have been studying Arabic since 2007 and have spent 2.5 years in intensive, immersion-language situations in Jordan and Morocco. I studied Media Arabic and read major works of Arabic literature at the University of Chicago, where I obtained a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies. I worked with a Middle School Arabic Class in Chicago where I focused on beginner-level language acquisition. In addition to tutoring Arabic, I have extensive experience teaching English to non-native speakers, so I am well-acquainted with second-language teaching and acquisition.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked as an ESL teacher in middle school and high school classrooms abroad, teaching English to native Arabic speakers. I also have extensive experience running English conversation classes for students of all ages and language levels.

GRE

I am interested in working with students in verbal and analytical writing sections of the GRE. I have scored in the 97th and 98th percentiles, respectively, in each section.

Social Studies

I have a B.A. in history, and a master's degree in Middle Eastern studies, with a history focus. I have extensive tutoring experience, with WyzAnt, and with other organizations, tutoring high school and college students in a variety of social studies milieu, including Western Civ., Government and Politics and Modern European history.

Writing

Hello! I have five years of teaching and tutoring experience in classrooms from the Middle East to Tucson. I taught English in the Peace Corps in Jordan and worked with an adult literacy program in Washington, DC. I worked in social studies and Arabic classrooms in the Chicago public schools, and, currently, I am tutoring Tucson-based high school and college students in Western Civilization, Government & Politics, Literature, and Language Arts. I enjoy working with students in all social studies/social sciences/humanities disciplines, including ESL, and am especially interested in working with students on writing and research projects.

I have a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Chicago; my research and writing focused on the history of ideas, history and religion, and the history of the Middle East as world history. I also have extensive coursework in Arabic, in addition to the immersion learning experience that Peace Corps-Jordan provided me with. I have worked with beginner-level Arabic students in the classroom and I look forward to working with Arabic students at the beginner and intermediate levels.

As this description sets out, I am a generalist. Whether working with students on history, writing, or English materials, the critical thinking, research, and argumentation skills that my students acquire through our sessions benefit them in all of their courses.
