About Keila

I received a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Flagler College and am currently pursuing coursework in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Florida Southern. On multiple occasions, I have worked as a long term substitute teacher, performing the duties of a certified teacher. These long term assignments include: elementary school (all subjects), middle school science (biological, earth, physical sciences), and middle school intensive reading.

I feel that tutoring is a great opportunity to structure learning to achieve individual goals. These may be to retain and solidify previously learned topics, to prepare for transitions into a new grade level, or to learn something that maybe didn't quite make sense the first time around!

I have taught middle school biological science on multiple occasions as a long term substitute teacher. I have also completed college level biological course work with high scores including: Biological Essentials, Cell Biology, Genetics, Animal Behavior.

I have completed coursework in a variety of writing intensive classes that have allowed me to improve my skills as a writer and editor/proofreader. I am able to direct students in various writing styles including research papers, lab reports, and essays.

The lesson plans are flexible and feedback is always welcome so that we can work together to find what works best with your learning style!

Please contact me with any questions you have. I look forward to helping you or your child succeed!

Vocabulary

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.

Biology

I have taken multiple college level biology classes ranging from topics on evolution to processes of the cell. I also taught middle school biological science for several months. These very different situations allow me to communicate the information in a way that fits the needs and educational levels of individual students.

Literature

Having successfully completed a multitude of English literature classes, I am able to help students comprehend and think critically about their assigned readings.

Proofreading

I have successfully completed and edited a variety of papers including research papers, lab reports, and essays. I have specific knowledge of APA, MLA, and Chicago formatting, having used them all throughout my college career.

Vocabulary

I believe that understanding root words, prefixes, and suffixes can allow for a better understanding of known vocabulary words. These skills are also useful when trying to determine the meaning behind unknown vocabulary words when context clues may not be available. Having taught this information previously in a reading class, I saw how this technique was utilized as a test taking strategy for students who struggled with vocabulary.

Writing

Writing is a skill that gets better with practice but can be quickly improved with tips and tricks. Having consistently taken writing intensive classes has allowed me to personally hone my writing skills. Teaching writing techniques during various long term subbing jobs has also allowed me to determine which tips and tricks are most helpful to students for various types of writing assignments.
