Kyla is a mathematician and educator passionate about helping others feel the beauty and power of math. Kyla is a graduate student in math at San Francisco State University and earned her BA from Bryn Mawr College.
As a teacher for the past six years, Kyla has built relationships through math in a variety of schools in the Bay Area, including the Nueva School, the San Francisco Waldorf High School, and San Francisco State University. She has also led elementary and middle-school programs with the Center for Talented Youth and the SF Math Circle, where she currently is a leader of a group of high school students in SFUSD. Kyla patiently leads people toward understanding through inquiry and challenge and is always eager to inspire interest and confidence in mathematical problem-solving and test-taking in girls and other minorities in math. With a background in liberal arts and a general interest in learning, she can support students broadly.
When not engaged in math (and sometimes while engaged in math), Kyla enjoys long train trips, excursions into forests, and dance parties. She likes cycling, gardening, and yoga - ask her about math yoga!

"Kyla is incredibly patient and supportive. She gave [my daughter] a boost of confidence through out the testing process. She felt that Kyla was also a help with her math studies at school, providing her with practice problems and support instruction when necessary. Kyla was very professional and personable." - Parent, The Hamlin School
