About Kaye

I love to teach! I love to help students learn!

I am a fully qualified teacher, and I have taught children, teens, as well as adults. I also work with GED students, graduate students and English as a Second Language students. In addition, have coached a lot of writers with their books. I have just completed my PhD degree!

My students not only enjoy their tutoring sessions but find personal success and achievement.

Here's what I believe. I believe that every single child and student can find success in all school subjects. I believe success in school is an important step in successful life skills. I believe everyone is special - with unique skills of their own – and that tutoring should be individualized. I believe a tutor should make tutoring a positive experience and build self-confidence in all students as well as building skill sets. I believe that once you make a decision to 'go for it' you can achieve your goals faster than you think – and have more fun than you ever believed possible in the process.

I hold a PhD degree, a master's degree, a bachelor of education degree and a bachelor of arts degree. I also hold a certificate which qualifies me as a Teacher of English as a Second & Foreign Language (TESL/TEFL). I am qualified to teach elementary school, middle school, high school, college, graduate school as well as adult learners.
