About Layla

A lot of the time schools can't give students the one-on-one attention they may need, that's where I come in to help! Throughout my educational career I've tutored a number of students from a variety of backgrounds and ability levels in many different subjects. I've also had the amazing opportunity to work and observe teachers in schools throughout the Philadelphia area, and I know what works and what doesn't in school. I'd like to have the opportunity to help students excel in any way that I can, and tutoring is by far the best way to make that happen!

I'm a recent graduate of Swarthmore College with a degree in History and Education. I am also a certified Social Studies teacher 7-12. I have always had a passion for learning and teaching seemed to come naturally to me from a young age. I currently work at an elementary school in Northeast Philadelphia with special needs students and I have tutored SAT reading, writing and math, history, and literature. I have student taught at Ridley High School, conducted a literacy research project in Chester, PA, and helped develop new and original curriculum in a variety of settings.

My goal as a teacher is to help each and every student excel and unlock all of their hidden potential. I enjoy taking creative approaches to student learning. I'm patient, caring, and responsible. My goal as a tutor is to foster a love of learning among my students, not just getting them to pass a test.

Hope to hear from you!

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.

Public Speaking

Throughout high school and college I've refined my public speaking skills to perfection. I was a champion debator, sports announcer, and a teacher. I can teach a student how to form, defend, and present an argument in an eye-catching way. I can also help increase confidence and help develop latent talent.
