About Darla Kay

Hello!

I have been a distance educator for over two decades, teaching students from all over the world. I am also a mother of three school-aged daughters. I am passionate about teaching and tutoring students. I have a Master's Degree in Education Design and Technology. I am passionate about the use of technology in education. I am on the board of directors of a regional STEM organization which highlights the positive use and community impact of using science, technology, engineering and math in education.

We all learn differently and need some sort of extra help at one time or another. Mentoring and tutoring are an important part of any educational journey, I think. I like meeting face to face, but also think that tutoring can be accomplished virtually.

My style of tutoring begins with getting to know the student and their strengths and weaknesses and then highlighting and using those strengths. I believe in multiple learning styles and multiple intelligence theory.

Education empowers all of us. I am looking forward to tutoring students in and around my own community.

All the best,

Darla

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.
