About Kira

Hi! My name is Kira F. and I am a recent graduate from High Point University. I earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Computer Science and Game Design and graduated with minors in Math and Business Administration. I have been tutoring and instructing math (more specifically Calculus and Algebra) since my freshman year of college, and I love it. I'm a passionate and energetic person who loves to share her enthusiasm with everyone. These traits are my greatest strengths when it comes to working with students, and I look forward to getting the opportunity to work with you!

I specialize in tutoring Calculus, but I am well adept at tutoring Algebra, Algebra 2, Pre Calculus, Math test prep, Intro level Statistics, and other math related topics. Even Calculus 2 if you pull my thumb! While I have the most professional experience tutoring older teens, I do have experience tutoring middle school and elementary school kids through volunteer programs and class work.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment! Once more, I look forward to working with you!

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.

Calculus

I have tutored Calculus since my freshman year of college and have even been a supplemental instructor for this subject 3 times now. One of those instances, I was SI'ing for a group of 8 fraternity brothers who had all failed Calculus the previous semester. By the end of the summer course, all had passed and a few even made A's.

Praxis

The math section of the Praxis exam is based around these four content areas: number and quantity, algebra and functions, geometry, and statistics and probability. Many of these subjects are found in the ACT and the GRE, in which I scored a 32 and a 167, and I have already passed the ACT prep and algebra subject tests here through Wyzant. I have also had past experience tutoring Statistics and Contemporary Topics, which has a portion dedicated to understanding number and quantity. Lastly, I have had experience tutoring one adult woman in math Praxis prep, and I'm proud to say she passed!

Reading

I received a 34 on the Reading section of the ACT and a 162 on the Verbal portion of the GRE. Reading has always been a passion of mine and I know a few tips and tricks for studying and altogether figuring out reading comprehension questions.
