About Makayla

I work as a teacher in the public school system and have 8 years of experience. I enjoy teaching reading and writing. I have two main hobbies reading and knitting. I love tutoring because it gives me that one on one teaching experience that I can't get in the classroom. Students would say that I am fun and I care about them. My colleagues would say I am passionate about students and push for their needs to be met. Parents would say that I am honest and keep open lines of communication.

I have taught English in the following grades: K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th grades. I have a Masters degree is reading curriculum and instruction and know all the common core requirements needed for EOG success. I'm a experience proof reader and can help the older student with writing long research papers.

I am formally trained in the process of turning non-readers into readers no mater the age. If your child is below grade level in reading I can bring them to grade level. If your child is a complete non-reader my teaching strategies will make them readers within 5-6 months. I can also help your pre-K student go into Kindergarten above grade level expectation for reading.

I can help students with ADD, ADHD, Reading Intervention, SLD, Autism, Mild to Moderate disabilities.

My students describe me as caring and motivating. I love to teach and help students become their best.
