Bio

Hello! I'm Mikayla. I was homeschooled my whole life, which afforded me the opportunity to develop a self-directed style of learning. This ability has been invaluable to me, and I seek to pass it on to my students. I grew up watching my mother teach me, and I learned how to imitate her so I could homeschool my own children in the future. With the knowledge I gained during my school years, I know I can help students gain confidence and experience the joy of learning!

Hello! I'm Mikayla. I was homeschooled my whole life, which afforded me the opportunity to develop a self-directed style of learning. This ability has been invaluable to me, and I seek to pass it on to my students. I grew up watching my mother teach me, and I learned how to imitate her so I could homeschool my own children in the future. With the knowledge I gained during my school years, I know I can help students gain confidence and experience the joy of learning!

I graduated from high school a year early with a 4.0 GPA. After high school, I went on to attend Liberty University Online for one year, earning dual high school and college credit. I finished in 2019 with a 4.0 GPA. Both those experiences instilled in me a love for learning and passion to succeed. I'm excited to impart those qualities to my students and to show them that, with confidence and self-discipline, they can accomplish anything they put their mind to.

I will typically utilize the Abeka homeschool curriculum (a Christian curriculum). It is what I used in my school years. I find it to be very detailed and organized, and it gave me a wonderful foundation in the subjects I teach.

Please contact me if you are interested in tutoring in any of the subjects listed on my profile. My specialty is creative writing and academic writing, but I help students with the other subjects as well. Additionally, I offer outside-of-class editing services for a variety of writing assignments, spanning all grade levels, as well as for creative writing.

I am happy to have a free consultation via text/email in order to conduct a needs assessment and address any questions or concerns.

ATTN Homeschooling Parents: I currently have morning and early afternoon availabilities for writing classes (creative and academic writing), assignment help, and English classes. As a former homeschooler myself, I am used to the atmosphere and content of homeschooling, and I know I can effectively help any homeschooled students excel.

Writing

Writing has been a passion of mine since I was six years old. I pursued writing several novels and have participated in many writing challenges. In addition, I have researched the craft of writing since I was fourteen. It would be my privilege help students with creative writing and pass on what I know about the beautiful art that is storytelling. Besides creative writing, I also have experience in academic writing. Throughout high school and college, I received top marks on all the assignments I submitted. Being able to complete such writing assignments with confidence has been invaluable to me, and I look forward to helping my clients improve their craft. Furthermore, I have worked with students of all ages, helping them gain confidence and expand their skills. Through teaching outlining techniques, introducing students to a wide range of assignments, and giving them feedback on their writing, I am able to give them the writing experience, encourage them, and help them prepare for higher level writing classes and assignments. In addition, I offer outside of class editing services. As an experienced editor, I can review college application essays, various academic writings, creative writing (including novels and short stories), select other writings, and more and leave detailed revision suggestions and comments.

Very knowledgeable and extremely talented

Mikayla started tutoring our son who is in 7th grade and we started seeing results immediately. His interest in writing increased and we started seeing a clear difference in his writing style. Not only writing, he is now able to articulate very well while talking. Mikayla is very professional, on time and goes out of her way to make writing interesting and fun for kids.

An assay editing

Mikayla L. is amazing very smart, very informative, knowledgeable and very patient teacher. She managed to help my son, despite the short time and my son being late for class. I was hoping to book extra time, but it seems that her schedule was full today. We are looking forward to schedule more classes with her in the future.

Great essay help!

Mikayla has been great I have been using her to help with my graduate school essays. She can return them in a timely fashion and provides great edits. She has made this process so much easier for me- I would recommend using her as an editor if you need some edits for papers of any sort. Thank you Mikayla!

The most kind, encouraging, and patient tutor ever!

Mikayla has been such an amazing help for my nephew! He has been struggling with his online language arts classes, as he is not use to an online environment. Mikayla went through the lessons with him and helped him understand the lessons and assignments. Aside from that she was so kind and encouraged him along the way! The amazing help she provided and encouragement along the way has 100% boosted his confidence in this class! My nephew is so shy but she is so kind/ friendly making him feel comfortable during each session. Mikayla is so well organized and great at communicating with me before and after each lesson. I appreciate her soooo much and will continue to use her as his tutor for the next school year! She is my nephews favorite tutor! I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone, she is amazing!!

Extraordinary teacher!

Mikayla has been a wonderful addition to my daughters education. Not only has she helped my daughter achieve A’s in English/history course she also helps my daughter to edit, review, and revise her paper into a finished and published masterpiece. We chose her because of her age and her educational background and this has been a definite asset for my child. Mikayla is young enough to relate to elementary and high school students. She is positive,knowledgeable, and patient. We absolutely love her.

Awesome Tutor!!

My son had a great experience on his first day. He was a little emotional and the tutor was very understanding. My son enjoys his first session with her and will continue on to the next session. I highly recommend her with pleasure. I knew she would be a good fit for my son once I read her profile. A job well done!!
