I am a certified Intervention Teacher in grades k-12. I specialize in helping students with mild to moderate learning disabilities whom are on an Individual Education Plan through the state standards.
I graduated with my Master's in Teaching in 2009.
I currently teach high school students. I am interested in tutoring reading and writing, but am open to any subject. I do best with teaching students strategies to make studying and comprehension of material easier.

Currently, I am in my first year at Focus Learning Academy High School. I have been an after school tutor with WyzAnt since October. I enjoy tutoring the elementary and secondary grades because it gives me a range of ages to teach besides just high school students. I believe in the tutoring program because it gives kids the extra advantage of help and homework readiness.
I enjoy tennis, yoga and biking in my free time. I love the zoo and going to movies.

***Please be aware of my cancellation policy***
24 hours notice or I will charge a regular session fee. Please leave your phone number to avoid this outcome. I believe in communication and time taht is valuable for tutor and family.

Great ideas but...

She arrived for the tutoring session a week (and a half hour) early. Luckily my husband and son were home. I got home about half way through the session to find out she had worked out a homework contract with our son including rewards (to be given by me and my husband) without running it by us first. She also suggested to our son that he not start his homework until about 6:30 p.m on school nights (which is very contrary to what we've told him) and that he spend at least 20 minutes per night doing homework but no more than 1.5 hours. (What if he has more than 1.5 hours worth? ?) She did have some really great ideas regarding organization and study skills (which is what we asked her for) but I felt she overstepped her boundaries a bit - particularly for never having met us before.

Solid Tutor - Great with Kids!

I have an 8 year old son who is easily distracted, easily frustrated and frankly a little lazy when it comes to reading and writing. I hired Kayla to be his summertime tutor and have enjoyed watching my son connect with her. She has a very kind and gentle personality, is soft spoken, and simply puts her students at ease. My son looks forward to seeing her and always leaves happy. I asked my son what he liked about her and he responded, "She gives me candy, is a nice teacher, and she helps me a lot." I recommend Kayla!

Good Job

Kayla is patient and has my son excited about reading. His confidence is going up. He still has a little problem with focusing at times but she is always patient.

Horrible!!

I would not recommend this tutor to anyone who is serious about there child education. She was late to the sessions on two different occasions. Seems as though she just cares about money. Not recommendendable.

Tutor responded:

She didn't read the 24 hr cancellation fee posted. She didn't contact me to cancel a session. I charged her. I acted in fairness of my time as a tutor.

Great tutor

Kayla has worked with my daughter several times. My daughter really enjoys working with her. She is very sweet and finds interesting ways to help my daughter with homework. She is very patient and flexible. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a tutor.

Great Tutor!

My son has only been to a couple sessions with Kayla so far and has already shown improvement. She has taught him some strategies for multiplication which he now uses and is building his confidence. Will definitely recommend her to anybody needing a tutor.

Nichole, 4 lessons with Kayla
Tutor responded:

He understands best with examples. If I show him multiple ways of working a problem, he gets the concept immediately. He needs to remember that think time is okay and necessary to arrive at the right answer. He also needs to double check his work, many mistakes are from rushing.
