About this tutor

Working 1:1 with students to help them close academic gaps is something I am very passionate about. I love seeing the look on student's faces when they finally understand their material.

I worked as a tutor for three years in Florida [from 2013 to 2016] at Huntington Learning Center. I was their Lead Math Tutor for Exam Prep (any and all exams!) and later became their Assistant Director. I have tutored students of all ages in all subjects but my specialties are math up to Geometry and reading comprehension.

I then transitioned into classroom teaching where I taught 7th grade math and Algebra 1. I now teach 6th grade science at a middle school in Lakewood, CO.

I love seeing that "ah-ha!" moment happen as students begin to understand what they're learning. It is such a great feeling for them!

    Ms. Elbaum was a very good teacher who was always ready to help any of her students. I remember especially that when it was five days before our Algebra EOC, I came to her and she happily taught any unit I was struggling with. Ms. Elbaum was always encouraging us even if we struggled on tests and that really motivated me to do my best. This year I’m taking Algebra 2, and what Ms. Elbaum taught me in algebra 1 still makes sense and I’m passing this class with good grades.

    Kayleigh helped me all through out high school with math and exam prep as a private tutor. She really helped me excel in math and has a unique and special way of helping students understand even the most difficult mathematical problems. Kayleigh was one of the best tutors I had while in high school and I really enjoyed her energy and her teaching style. I was able to get into the college of my dreams, Florida Atlantic University because of the help I revived from Kayleigh as a tutor. Now as a junior in college, although the work is more difficult, I still use the techniques she taught me to excel in my math classes.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will ask to see as many examples of recent student work as possible to get a holistic view of the student's capabilities. I will inquire with the student themselves to better understand where they feel they are struggling. If necessary I may administer a grade-level "pre-test" to identify specific academic gaps in need of support.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated from Florida State University in 2013 with a degree in Psychology. I transitioned to tutoring soon after graduating which led me to teaching. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing can be worked out on an individual basis.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students ages 4-55. I have worked with students who are on a traditional schooling path as well as students in trade schools and GED students. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The image as my profile picture was one caught by a leadership team member at my school. We were walking to her car during lunch and it started snowing. It was the first time I had ever been in falling snow. I grew up in Florida and had just moved to Colorado in June of that year. She thought it was so crazy that I had never seen snow so she snapped that photo. Great memory <3


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should consider their feelings. They should ask themselves how they feel in each of their classes or how they feel trying to complete work in certain subjects. Often students who struggle avoid the subject they struggle in. Looking out for subjects they naturally want to avoid is a good indicator that support is needed in that area.
