Georgia State University (Applied Linguistics)
Hello, and thank you for clicking on my page! I am a graduate from Georgia State University who has always been interested in teaching. As a result, I have studied Applied Linguistics, a field that teaches you how languages work from the inside out and how to apply that knowledge to teaching ESL. My studies have naturally focused on English grammar, writing and reading, and it has helped me learn useful teaching techniques that I apply to tutoring.
I have experience tutoring many different kinds of people, from children needing to improve their reading to adults working on their writing skills and everything in-between. I have also tutored math, ESL, and piano. I make it my priority to find each student's unique area of difficulty, and I personally cater my lessons towards help them improve in those areas.
I am interested in tutoring because I have always enjoyed teaching others new things. I also truly find joy in helping my students acquire a skill which can be beneficial in their everyday lives. I know how necessary it is to be kind, understanding and patient towards anyone trying to learn something for the first time. Therefore, I am dedicated to adapting to your learning needs and growing with you in order to provide the best experience possible.
Please feel free to contact me, if you need tutoring for English, reading, writing, math, ESL, ACT/SAT prep or piano, whether it's for a child, teen or adult. I promise to respond back as soon as possible and work out a schedule with you. Hello, and thank you for clicking on my page!

Very detailed and patient with my son. She also goes above and beyond with him. She is also flexible with her schedule to accommodate him. She is awesome and we will continue to work with her.
I cant wait to see you on Thursday. Thank you for you patience. She was focused in my grammar, reading concerns. I learned new words and new verbs in my first class. I really enjoyed.
Kierra was great! I highly recommend her for your tutoring needs! She i very knowledgeable in many different subjects and my daughter was very comfortable working with her!
Kierra did an excellent job in finding my daughter's area of difficulty and quickly adjusted her tutoring in that area. Awesome and patient demeanor.
I have owned Macintosh computers since 2009, and I am still using them on a daily basis. I am very familiar with the more unique aspects of the Mac OS such as the Dock, Dashboard, Launchpad, Mission Control and Spaces. I have also taught others how to navigate the Mac operating system in the past.
As an Applied Linguistics major, I have been taught all about phonetics, the sound systems of a language, and have learned the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). I have also been taught how to integrate phonetic knowledge into the teaching of English. Therefore, I am able to teach others how to draw parallels between words and sounds in order to improve their reading and writing skills.
I have been playing piano since April 2012. I have knowledge of basic music theory such as note duration, dynamics, tone, pitch, and scales. I also am aware of the distinction between a keyboard, digital piano, upright piano, and grand piano. I have also taken classes in college focused on music theory and piano performance.
