Bio

Life as a parent? Busy!

From running one kid off to soccer practice to trying to get dinner on the table at a decent hour, the last thing you want to hear is your child say, “I’m lost” when the dreaded math homework makes an appearance. Suddenly, you’re worried and you begin asking yourself “Is he not trying hard enough? Does she need extra help? Is the teacher not doing their job? What kind of math is this anyway?” I know that it can be extremely frustrating to not know why they are...

Life as a parent? Busy!

From running one kid off to soccer practice to trying to get dinner on the table at a decent hour, the last thing you want to hear is your child say, “I’m lost” when the dreaded math homework makes an appearance. Suddenly, you’re worried and you begin asking yourself “Is he not trying hard enough? Does she need extra help? Is the teacher not doing their job? What kind of math is this anyway?” I know that it can be extremely frustrating to not know why they are struggling or even how to help them with math concepts that don’t resemble anything you learned in school.

Don't Panic! I'm here to help!

I know you just want them to feel confident again and you just want to see them excited to sit down at the kitchen table and show you that they finally GOT it. The simple truth is that your child is not off by much. However, that gap is the difference between tears at the dinner table and cheers after a job well done.

Those missing math pieces? That’s where I come in. I find the math gap and the missing piece in your child’s understanding. I empower them to build a strong math foundation so that math is never a problem ever again. I help students take their math skills to the next level so that their peers are turning to them for help.

This is the beginning of everything changing. I bet you’ve even heard the common saying “You’re either good at math or you’re not.” Maybe you’ve even been told this yourself. After working with 100’s of students I know one thing for sure. That is simply not true. No one is born bad at math. Math is a learned skill and your child is fully capable of learning it if someone with patience and understanding can help them master their math skills and in the process grow in their confidence. I see the struggle as more than just one section of the math book.

The result? Peace, Confidence, and Excitement. Homework that gets done without the stress so you can go back to nights filled with exclamations of “I can” vs. “I can’t”.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret the administrators don’t want you to know. Obtaining a solid score on the ACT is not all about learning the content. Surprised? What they don’t want you to know is that to ace this test you need a balance of two things; SPEED and FOCUS. I teach students how to use active engagement techniques that boost student performance and reduce the chance for careless errors. Maximizing correct answers leads to substantially higher scores. Imagine celebrating with your child after they earn that topnotch ACT score and them feeling like sky is the limit. They can go to any college of their choice anywhere and finances are not an issue. Can you feel the relaxation sweeping over you? Your child is more than just a test score, however, sometimes life is a series of hoops that we must jump through. Take a proactive approach and help your child obtain the skills and confidence to set themselves up for success. I’m your ACT insider and I can’t wait to help your child reach their ACT English score goal.

Often, when a student is having challenges in math, it is because one or two concepts slipped by, or weren’t taught properly. This makes the next concept more difficult, and pretty soon a student can be overwhelmed. I will quickly help you get caught up, and then help you get ahead, so that your math classes will be like review sessions instead of just going through the motion.

Professional, personable, he fosters confidence that comes from mastery.

Mr. S. turned a light on inside my son and ignited a passion to learn that I had no idea still existed. We feel very fortunate to have found Mr. S. and have every confidence in his ability to bring out the best in each of his students. Parents will enjoy his great feedback and concrete plans with clear objectives. Students will enjoy his warm, confident energy and judgement free approach. He will make them feel comfortable and capable of reaching their goals.

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much for the review Ginger! Your son is extremely bright and I am so excited to work with him further! His confidence has already improved tremendously with only a few sessions!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

I would highly recommend Kyle as a tutor. He is very knowledgeable, but equally as important he knows how to communicate that knowledge to his students. His patience knows no bounds, and he immediately puts the kids at ease. My daughter gained confidence AND improved her math skills. Truly, Kyle missed his calling. He would be a phenomenal teacher!

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much for the review Chris! I really enjoyed working with you and your daughter. I wish her the best of luck on the ACT!

An engaging, smart and patient tutor with a great sense of humor.

Never having used Excel, Kyle helped me navigate the program, answered all my questions as we went along. He has a wonderful command of the subject material and is really easy to work with. He sent follow-up materials for me to review for our next session and most of all just encouraged me to go into Excel and use it. I recommend him without reservation and am looking forward to our next session.

Awesome Tutor!

He has helped me tremendously! I was on my way to failing calculus, but after learning from Kyle, I am confident I will pass with a high grade! Thank you Kyle!!

Thanks Jaret! You are extremely bright and I really enjoyed working with you! Happy holidays!

Patient and Knowledgeable

Kyle is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor. I hired him to help my son increase his math section of the ACT test. My son have always struggled with math and often lacks confidence when attempting to do problems. Early on Kyle recognized my son would need more than the normal prep ACT sessions. My son has been working with him and his knowledge and confidence has increase. We have more sessions scheduled but I feel confident my son will do much better on his ACT test when he takes it again in December.

Thank you for your review Tijauna! I really enjoy working with your son!

Patient and knowledgable

We went over a lot of algebra 2 functions, such as exponents, radicals and factoring. He's very patient and teaches in a very easy way to learn.

Thank you for the review! I had a great time working with you and Im so glad to hear that you did very well on your final! Have a great day!

Outstanding Tutor

My daughter is a senior who is preparing to take the ACT for the second time. She has been working with Kyle with the goal of improving her math score. Math has always been a challenge for her, yet she has been nothing but complimentary about Kyle's instruction. He has been very patient and encouraging and clearly explains concepts in a way that she is able to understand. He has helped her identify the specific types of math problems she is struggling with and clearly provides the instruction needed to solve them. Her confidence level has greatly improved, and I have no doubt her ACT math score will improve, as well. As a parent, Kyle has been extremely friendly, communicative, reliable, and flexible. I have been very impressed with his professionalism, and I highly recommend his tutoring services.

Heather, 5 lessons with Kyle

Thank you for the review Heather! It has been a pleasure working with your daughter and seeing her progress. I have really been impressed with her determination and work ethic over the past month. I wish her the best of luck on her upcoming test! Have a great day!

A Big Help!

Kyle has been a terrific tutor! He's is very organized and detail oriented, coming up with a plan which focused in on tackling Miranda's biggest issues and she is very pleased with how things have been going so far. She has had two in-person sessions and one on-line and all have gone very well. I especially like that she seems more confident after every session that she will be able to improve her ACT Math score, and her lack of confidence in her own skills is one of her major issues. So, it's not just the "nuts and bolts" that are being dealt with, but he is working on all of the things which will help her succeed.

Susan, 5 lessons with Kyle
Tutor responded:

Thank you for the review Susan! Miranda is such a joy to work with. She is extremely bright and I can see her confidence improving after every session that we have. Keep working hard Miranda!

An Excellent First Session

My son is being tutored for his math ACT's. He came away from the lesson excited to learn more and confident in his abilities to do well and improve his skills and score. Very positive experience.

Thea, 12 lessons with Kyle
Tutor responded:

Thank you Thea! I really enjoy working with your son! Like you said prior to our lesson, he has the ability to pick up on patterns. He is a logical thinker and a great problem solver. These characteristics will take him far on the ACT math section. Thank you again for the review and I look forward to working with your son over the next few months!
