About Kira

I am a current seventh grade learning support (special education) and math (pre-algebra and Algebra) teacher. I have a BS in Elementary Education and a BS in Special Education. I also have a M.Ed. in Special Education. I have Pennsylvania Teacher Certificates in Elementary Education (K-6), Middle Level Math (7-9) Middle Level English (7-9) and Special Education (K-12). I also have helped design programs for organization, study skills and test taking strategies within my middle school. I have been tutoring for several years and have helped many different students become successful in their own classes with the strategies I have provided.

I have been teaching for 9 years and have taught a variety of subjects and skills: elementary math, reading, writing pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, life science, study skills, organizational skills and test taking skills. I have worked with students with a variety of learning styles and needs. I always work hard to find the best way to present information to my students. I always work hard to incorporate student interests into my lessons.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I am currently a special education teacher at the middle school level. I work with students with ADHD on a regular basis in all of my classes. I have worked with these students to help them develop and implement strategies to help stay focused, or alleviate excess energy. I help these students learn to monitor and adjust their behaviors in the classroom to develop self- awareness.

Algebra 1

I hold a Middle Level Math PA certification, Middle Level English PA certification, Elementary k-6 PA certification, and a Special Education k-8 PA certification. I am a 7th grade special education/ math teacher with 12 years teaching experience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold certification in the area of Elementary Education. Part of this process was to take several courses on elementary level content. I also taught Kindergarten through 12th graders at an alternative school for two years and have experience helping students who struggle with social and emotional needs become actively engaged in academics.

Prealgebra

Middle Level Math Certification (PA)
K-8 Special Education Certification (PA)
K-6 Elementary Education Certification (PA)

12 years teaching experience (including 5 years teaching prealgebra curriculum)

Study Skills

I currently work with students who struggle with studying skills and test taking skills. I develop strategies (Study cards, making a practice test, developing a study power point, creating a game, repetition, etc.) to help students study. I also teach them to break down the material and study a bit each evening, even when a test is not announced.
