##### About Kayla

I grew up in Northern California and went to a top school in the Silicon Valley called Santa Clara University. I was unsure at first in what to major in, but after my first year I drifted more towards taking Math classes with the hopes of one day becoming a high school math teacher.

I tutored students grades 4-12 while enrolled in college at a specific math tutoring center called Mathnasium. I was the president of the Mathematics Club my senior year of college and volunteered to tutor college students in the courses I had previously taken. Numbers can be tricky and frustrating, but once you understand them, you can build off of that knowledge and complete more complicated tasks in life.

Since moving to New Orleans, I have worked with one student in Mathematics (an eighth grader) who had to bump up his grades to get into Jesuit High School. He not only was accepted to Jesuit High School, but was won his middle school award for most improved student in math. I love watching students realize their own potential. I am a patient and kind tutor.

At the end of the day I want my student to understand the concepts behind what he or she is doing. If my student can understand why each step is taken, the specific problem and math in general, can make sense and even be fun! I work to relate math problems to life events that happen in our daily lives. Students will see how important problem solving and working with numbers is in life outside of school.
