About Kira


Bio

I graduated from Mary Washington in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in English. Then I spent a year in Japan teaching English in elementary and middle schools. I spend my summers teaching kids how to sew.

I very much enjoy tutoring and helping students to not just memorize information, but to fully grasp it. I believe there are the stages in a student's education: learning, doing, and teaching. Once a student knows a subject or process well enough to teach someone else about it, then they...

I very much enjoy tutoring and helping students to not just memorize information, but to fully grasp it. I believe there are the stages in a student's education: learning, doing, and teaching. Once a student knows a subject or process well enough to teach someone else about it, then they will remember it better.

Sewing

Sewing

I have been sewing as a hobby for 20 years. I have been teaching children, ages 9 through 14, how to use a sewing machine for the past 2 summers. I start with teaching about the machine itself, then about finding and using patterns. The students practice sewing on paper sheets, then I assist them in making a simple first project.
