Hi there! My name is Kyra, and I am a graduate of the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. I enjoy tutoring because it is an opportunity for me to help others do the thing I love most – learn. I think that learning should be fun and exciting, even when the material gets tough.
I have worked as a tutor in a wide range of subjects, including chemistry, biology, math, government, psychology, and test prep, and I have taught a wide range of ages from my work as a camp counselor with elementary school-aged children to my time as a college organic chemistry tutor.
In my free time, I like to read books about environmental history, practice yoga, and draw.
