Kala Downey


Hi, my name is Kala Downey. I hold a Bachelor’s, a Master’s, and a Ph.D. in Biology with a focus in Ecology and Genetics. I taught a wide range of biology classes for 10 years while obtaining my degrees. My tutoring preferences include all Biological sciences, elementary Math through to Geometry, Reading, English Literature, and General and Organic Chemistry. The majority of my teaching experience involves college-aged students, but I spent several summers working with elementary, middle, and high-school children on reading and science through various volunteer programs. In addition, I also have a background in ACT, SAT, GRE, and ASVAB prep. I started working with Tutor Doctor in the summer of 2022. Courses I have tutored include ACT prep, elementary Reading and Math, Pre-Algebra, and Physical Science.
