"Hi, I'm Kaila! I'm currently an undergraduate student at Colgate University, where I'm majoring in International Relations. In high school, I graduated in the top 3% of my class, High Honor Roll, and successfully completed ten Advanced Placement courses. In college, however, I discovered that classes were much more difficult and the key parts of the puzzle that led me to success were my professors. Being in a class where the teacher was willing to put forth effort to make the course material clear and comprehensible allowed me to become engaged and learn the subject matter rather than just memorize it. I hope to bring this engagement to my tutoring, by making material clear and fun to learn!

Throughout high school, I tutored students from kindergarten through fourth grade in inner-city schools in my area. We reviewed reading skills, completed math and reading homework assignments and projects, and engaged the students in educational activities. Currently, I am an employee at a local nursery school where I work with children aged 2-4. Several days during the week I'm also a teacher at an after-school program for children in kindergarten through third grade. I have my New York State clearances to work with and care for children.

I have successfully completed all math courses up to and including Calculus 2 in college. Specializing in elementary education, I have taught and tutored students in elementary math for all 4 years of high school, and I have peer tutored students in high school math throughout my academic career, as well.

I hope I can benefit the students I work with as much as possible, and I'm always open to suggestions. Feel free to contact me with any questions, or to schedule a tutoring session and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!" less...
