About Kira

Hi, my name is Kira and I currently work as a Social Worker in the public sector. I have an extensive background in the Social Sciences that include areas such as Sociology and Psychology. I am an alumni of NC State University and a graduate of The Professional School of Psychology. I enjoy learning as much as I do teaching! During my time at NC State, I fell in love with tutoring and worked the the student athlete program to tutor and empower our collegiate athletes. As a tutor, I trained in many areas, including study and test taking strategies, working with students with learning disabilities and ways to improve reading and comprehension to name a few. I remained on board as a tutor for a little over five years. I also worked on the side tutoring local high school students in various subjects and helping them to enhance their organizational and test taking skills.

I currently tutor as a volunteer teaching Adult Basic Education courses where I work from a guided curriculum to improve reading, writing and comprehension skills. I work with adult learners to improve their preexisting reading skills or learn to read for the first time. I find this work very enjoyable! Despite being a tutor, I learn much from my students and ways to continue to meet their needs in a learning environment.

As a tutoring, my goal is to improve confidence and content knowledge, teach in ways that enhances a learner's skills and abilities and make learning fun. I have found that with all my students that learning is a combination of styles and empowering the learner to reach their ultimate potential. I am a very patient, out going and creative tutor that brings much to a learning session! I look forward to meeting new learners very soon.

I currently teach Adult Basic Education and do so by utilizing a provided curriculum but also placing a unique spin on the lessons. I have experience teaching paper writing, reading, writing and comprehension skills. I am familiar with paper writing formats and research skills.

I have taught Spanish tutorial groups and one on one sessions in the past. I am able to understand some of the language as well.

I have taught Social Studies groups and one on one sessions in the past that have included content areas such as World History, Politics Science, Anthropology and additional History areas.

If you are looking for a tutor who is willing to help, be creative in the learning process and find ways to address disconnects in various areas, I encourage you to contact me so that we can discuss how I can help and schedule lessons to start the process. Thank you for considering me and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
