Hello!

My name is Kayla Matthews.

I am the Founder of Ladder 2 Learning LLC, Math Tutoring Program.

Math has always been the one subject that I really thought made sense. Growing up, I always wanted to be a teacher and math is what I was always good at. It just made sense to me. I remember when I was in the 5th grade teaching a first grade class math with rice crispy treats. The joy of the students is what always stuck with me. This is why I love to teach.

 

When I was in college, I originally was an Elementary Education Major. I just knew that teaching was my calling and the students smiles would make my everyday worthwhile. As I grew, I realized that my love my math was stronger than my love for an Elementary Educator.

So I changed my major to Math Education. I knew that Math was something that I could see myself teaching all day, being excited and bring life to something that most people found so daunting.


My Tutoring Experience


I started tutoring math my Sophomore to Athletes at School. I was what you called after a while, a recommended tutor. I was patient with them, took my time to explain concepts not just to complete assignments but they were passing test! It was amazing. I was making a difference at my school helping athletes keep their scholarship by passing classes.

My first paid personal tutor job was in 2013. I tutored a middle school student. This student was the grandson of my boss at the time. Through this, I was given a reference to tutor a high school student for math. Both students grades increased and both parents were always extremely happy. I remember getting calls from them saying how they passed a test and felt confident. It was heartwarming. From here, I had to keep tutoring. As I progressed through college, I continued to tutor through the math department, given assistance to student who were taking higher level math classes. Yes college was a great run for the start up of tutoring, but it did not stop there.



Standardized Test Prep Tutor and Math Interventionist


I enjoyed tutoring so much, I begin working at Huntington Learning Center as a Tutor, tutoring both common core and then ACT. The ACT math is what I enjoyed the most. We were able to not only help student understand how the test was set up, but teach basic skills to students that help them build a foundation for ACT questions. Students were able to practice skills one by one focusing on not only mathematical fluency but conceptualizing the math. I had never seen anything like this before. It was amazing how tutoring for a student helped them jump 2-4 points on the ACT.


I have also had the pleasure of working with Mathnasium and participating in a Math intervention program in Montgomery Public Schools. This was an honor. I taught a 6-grade class were I created manipulatives, learning material, and assessments to help improve student grade level math skills and fill the gaps they had in their learning.

I have had experience both tutoring and teaching. Dealing with children of all ages, I have learned that each one can be taught.



Why Am I Starting A Blog?


I am starting a blog to support my tutoring business Ladder 2 Learning LLC. Where Every Step Counts. At L2L we believe that math is something that can be taught. Students who thing they are “bad” in math, tend to have a crack in their foundation. Basic Operations and vocabulary are what makes it so difficult. Students who never master the basics, tend to never make it pass a 4th grade level from my experience.

 

So, what do we do? Is math so obsolete that we turn our head to the Real Pandemic: Everyday Math? Math is everywhere. The statistics, the taxes, the stores, math is all around us.
