Kilando is a passionate tutor with over six years of experience. They began their tutoring journey in high school when they spearheaded, prepared, and taught a free ACT bootcamp to fellow students in their school district. Afterwards Kilando matriculated to Harvard University, where they received a degree in Applied Mathematics and Psychology. While at Harvard, Kilando was dedicated to providing excellent instruction to students on topics ranging from standardized testing to pre-algebra and calculus, gathering over 300 hours of tutoring experience. Their experience did not cease at tutoring though. Kilando also prepared and taught courses at the collegiate level. For example, Kilando designed and taught a course on the psychology and neuroscience of discrimination and stigma. They also were a teaching fellow for Harvard’s largest course: Stat 110 (Probability Theory – Intro to Statistics & Probability). Overall, Kilando believes that learning is a bidirectional effort. In other words, instead of talking at the student, Kilando believes in collaborating with the student to fortify strengths and mitigate weaknesses so together they can achieve academic success!
