About Kyle

My love of teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning, an appreciation I hope to share with my students. As a former elementary school educator and Scuba instructor, I understand that everyone has a different way of connecting to the material, and I specialize in facilitating ways to make the necessary connections for success.

I earned a California Teaching Credential for elementary education in 2003, a diploma in video production in 2007, and have been a professional photographer since 2011. I am also proficient in higher level arts, humanities, and social sciences. Regardless the subject, one of my goals for each session is to create an environment conducive to learning while challenging without overwhelming.

I accomplish this through my ability to recognize and adapt to different learning styles, and to relate the material to individual interests and experiences. Depending on the needs of the individual student I will either create an appropriate curriculum, incorporate the lessons they are being taught at school, or a combination of both.

I have a collaborative approach to education and welcome feedback, both from the student and their parents. From there I can adapt the lesson plans to be the best fit possible.

I am flexible with my time and the location we meet depending on the needs of the student. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but am happy to offer makeup classes on a case by case basis as I understand that even the best laid plans can go awry.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.
