About Kyle

I am a student at Houston Baptist University pursuing my undergraduate degree. As long as I can remember I have enjoyed my Algebra classes and have done well in them. I have also been singing in choir, playing the piano, and studying music theory since 8th grade.

I've taken five Algebra Courses - a year of pre-algebra in 8th grade; 3 years in high school - algebra 1, algebra 2, and college algebra; and a semester of college algebra at HBU. I received a reward for "Excellence in College Algebra" in High School and I was selected by my College Algebra professor to help tutor students in preparations for finals. I am currently a teaching assistant for introductory and intermediate algebra at HBU. In addition to these courses, I also took a semester a semester of Trigonometry (which builds on the basics of algebra and geometry), making an A. I also helped my classmates in Trigonometry class prepare for our final, and at each tutoring venture, the students I have helped have generally found me to be helpful.

Beginning in 8th grade, I joined choir (reluctantly at first, but I began to love it). I spent all 4 years in high school in choir and about 2 years in college. Sight-reading music has always been fun for me and I have helped a few of my classmates learn how to sight-read. I also play the piano, and I had the privilege of having a choir teacher who played the piano and enjoyed music theory - when I was leaving the school, she had me sight-read with her to lift my sorrow! So, in choir I learned the basics of music theory, outside of class I helped cement them, and then a year of AP Music Theory helped me to learn some more. I also received at college the Freshman Award in Music Theory award, and I have enjoyed music theory ever since I learned it. I find that understanding music theory, even if it isn't much, helps singers in sight-reading (understanding chord progressions and the qualities of chords help you to anticipate faster and to understand the reason for certain intervals), as well as pianists learn pieces. So, I would be glad to help you better learn music theory or algebra.

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.

Sight Singing

I've been a choir student for 6+ years and have experience with sight-singing for 8 years. After the 1st year I was selected (as a freshman) to join varsity choir on account of sight-singing.
