Hi, my name is Dani, and since starting my tutoring journey with Kid By Kid in August 2022, I never could have predicted the amount of personal growth it would bring. Engaging with children who often struggle in the classroom has given me valuable insights into their confidence levels, which directly correlate with their effort in schoolwork. Guiding my learners to build confidence in their intelligence and academics has revealed to me the incredible gift of helping others. The patience, understanding, and compassion I have cultivated through this organization have impacted other aspects of my life. My hobbies, such as volunteering, reading, boxing, and even playing sudoku, have all been enriched by the lessons I've learned while assisting others in their learning journeys. I am truly grateful for the transformative experience tutoring has provided me. :)
Hello, my name is Kelly and I've been tutoring with Kid By Kid since the start of my junior year. A school club I joined offered the opportunity to volunteer with KBK so I immediately emailed and was able to begin tutoring. I especially love math, reading, and science, so sharing my love of learning with other kids has been a really great experience. Seeing a kid's progress after a lesson or the joy they get when they learn something is quite rewarding. To have the experience to tutor made the weekends of my junior year all the more better.
Hello! My name is Zahra and I am 16 years old. I have many hobbies and extracurriculars, but my favorite is dance. I am a part of a performing company at my dance studio and also take classes at my school. In addition to dancing, I love music and track. I have been playing the cello since I was 10 years old and plan to continue playing through college. I also enjoy educating and working with young kids, which is why I felt right at home when I found Kid By Kid. Tutoring has taught me how to communicate more effectively and use my skills to directly serve the community. I am grateful for every connection I've made with the learners I tutor and look forward to continuing as a member of the Kid By Kid team. I find the impact that Kid By Kid tutors can provide for students in need to be incredibly important, and I would encourage everyone to consider contributing to this amazing program.
