About Kaydee

Growing up I guess I always knew I had a love for teaching in some way, shape or form. I was drawn to taking care of animals, and so when I was allowed to begin working I did so at a veterinary hospital. I went to college, taking an array of science and math classes. I graduated college and continued my work in animal hospitals as a veterinary technician.

I knew in my heart I was completely happy, and after my mother passed away (she was a middle school guidance counselor for 25 years), I saw the overwhelming love people had for her and how many lives she had touched. It was then that I decided to go back to school to get my teaching license. I enrolled in a career switcher program at our local university. It was an intense 6 months of school, working full time and student teaching, but it got me ready for the classroom.

I took my first job as a 7th grade life science teacher, and loved that for 3 years. I brought in different specimens from the animal hospital and loved making connections between the veterinary world and the classroom.

During those 3 years of teaching I met my husband, who is in the Navy. He got orders to Italy, and so I decided to leave my teaching job behind and join him in Italy. While there, I found a job teaching math and science to 6,7 and 8th graders at an International School. During my 21/2 years of teaching there, I had ONE American student. The rest were from Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Canada and Greece just to name a few. They all spoke English as their second language and it taught me to present the material in many different ways. I loved my time there and will forever cherish it!

I am now back in the states, and my husband and I just had our 2nd child. I can not go back to the classroom until the 2017/2018 school year, but I miss teaching so much! I love tutoring and helping students understand the material. Let me help 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.

Algebra 1

Math has always been a strong subject. While in Italy, I was challenged to teach this subject to students who spoke English as their second language. Due to those circumstances, I learned how to present the material in a way that is easy to understand and follow.

Biology

With my background being a veterinary technician, and spending 5 years teaching the subject I love finding new ways to present the material and making it fun to remember vocabulary words.

Prealgebra

Math has always been a strong subject. While in Italy, I was challenged to teach this subject to students who spoke English as their second language. Due to those circumstances, I learned how to present the material in a way that is easy to understand and follow.
