About Kierra

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.

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.

Macintosh

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.

Phonics

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.

Piano

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.
