About Kayla

I am an English Teacher who utilizes my English language, reading, and writing skills, classroom management abilities, and hands-on lessons in order to provide an environment conducive to learning for students from a variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds. I graduated in 2013 from Purdue University with a degree in English Education. They deemed my academic and personal skills worthy of the Outstanding Senior award in 2013 as well. My passion of teaching has thrived and continues to thrive helping students to be successful with their academic and personal pursuits.

English/Language Arts is the key to these endless forms of communication. The skills taught are applicable to more than just the school room or for homework; they are life skills. Being perceived as professional through written work and through interactions is crucial. Understanding how to read in a variety of forms will help minds to grow, to problem solve, and to understand various aspects of the world. Proofreading teaches those to analyze and to be critical of work, thoughts, and actions. It can create proactive tendencies instead of reactive.

If you are wanting to gain not only knowledge for your assignments but knowledge of living, I would be an excellent tutor. Please do not hesitate to ask questions. I pride myself in taking the time to explain thoroughly, to question you and myself to be sure that we have reached the best possible conclusion.

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.

ADD/ADHD

While attending Purdue University, students in the education field must take courses involving creating curriculum that adhere to students that are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.

I currently teach at a school with a high at-risk population. The majority of my students have IEPs indicating a variety of learning disabilities. I receive weekly updates of students who need accommodations, and I have the ability to recommend students that I believe need accommodations. I am qualified to work with students that have mild learning disabilities and are in need of accommodations due to my experiences in the education field.

Algebra 1

I have tutored students at Ivy Tech Community College with their respective math skills while working in the Learning Resource Center. I have also tutored students that needed to pass the Accuplacer test at Ivy Tech Community College. Even as a current English/Language Arts and Reading teacher, I often help m students with their math courses and skills.

Grammar

I am licensed to teach English Language Arts to middle and high school students. My current teaching position is an English teacher at a school of at-risk students. English composition, also known as grammar, is a fundamental skill that I teach my students. I have also taken courses at Purdue University in English composition.

Proofreading

I am licensed to teach English Language Arts and Reading to middle and high school students. I am an English teacher at a school of at-risk students. According to Indiana State Standards, students need to be able to go through the entire writing process which includes proofreading. I have experience proofreading other students' papers throughout my high school and college career. As an English teacher, I am constantly proofreading my students' works as well as my own.

Reading

I am licensed to teach English Language Arts and Reading to middle and high school students. I am an English teacher at a school of at-risk students. I have experience in assisting students (of a variety of ages and abilities) with advancing their reading skills. In college, I tutored an elementary Turkish student to improve her reading and spelling skills.
