About Kayla

I am a graduate student in maths at UT Tyler and a NOW CLRA Certified peer tutor at TJC. From an early age, I was told I would have learning disabilities in math. However, I've always had a love of numbers. In high school, my geometry teacher saw something unique and special in the way I approached math, so the next year she asked me to reach out and tutor several of her failing geometry students. I came to love those lunch hours, working with those students and it fostered in me a love of teaching.

I then attended TJC to get my basics, and it was there that I rediscovered my love of math. I thoroughly enjoyed my college algebra class, and was even asked to be a peer tutor for TJC the next semester. After working with my tutees, I decided to go for it, and get my degree in math. It was so rewarding to tutor others struggling in this subject, and I wanted to further that opportunity. So, once I graduated TJC with my general education degree, I transferred to UTTyler where I graduated with honors with a BS in Math! I am now working towards my graduate degree at the same institution.
As mentioned above, I do have experience tutoring. It is my passion. I have a very outgoing and positive tone during sessions, as I firmly believe math and learning should be an engaging process. I strive to give each student the keys to independent learning so they can continue to succeed on their own. I also have a love of writing, and do my best to incorporate English language definitions and explanations where I can.

I understand math anxiety and know what it is like to be told, "You Can't." Well, I'm here to tell you, "You Can!" Let's succeed together!

NOTE: DUE TO MY CONTRACT WITH TJC, I AM REQUIRED TO DIRECT ALL TJC STUDENTS TO THE TUTORING CENTER AT TJC.

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.

Algebra 1

I have experience with both peers and younger students.

Algebra 2

I am also a current math major taking advanced algebra and have been tutoring college algebra and above for a couple of years now.

Calculus

As I am currently a math major, I have taken a couple of years of Calculus so far and am currently enrolled in Differential Equations. I made good grades in Cal 1 and 2 and in both of the labs required for the class.

Prealgebra

Since high school, I have received great grades in math.

Precalculus

Precalculus is my strong point! I took this class at TJC and scored and A. Since then, I have been tutoring the subject and greatly enjoy it.

Wow! Kala seems to be a great fit for my 16 year old. She explained things in a way that my daughter could understand. I feel like they accomplished so much in just one hour. We couldn't be happier!!
