The Bishops School
The Bishop’s School is an academic community pursuing intellectual, artistic and athletic excellence in the context of the Episcopal tradition. We are dedicated to offering the highest quality education to a diverse student body and to fostering integrity, imagination, moral responsibility and commitment to serving the larger community.While it may be true that a school is measured by what its graduates become, for The Bishop’s School it is the “becoming” part of this belief that has shaped the School’s mission for 109 years. In addition to stimulating and challenging students academically, we believe that it is our role to help young people learn to be morally discriminating and to define ethical standards that will take them from adolescence to adulthood.

Angelina is a sophomore at The Bishop’s School and loves to read and hang out with her friends. Her favorite subjects are science and history, and she hopes that she can spread the joy of exploration she found in her classes and share her discoveries with Kid By Kid students. In her free time, Angelina does competitive sleeping and plays Exploding Kittens (which is a card game and thankfully doesn’t involve any violence towards kittens).
One recurring pattern that I have noticed throughout my education is that the more passionate a teacher is about subjects, the more their students learn and have fun. In fourth grade, one of my teachers taught us about the whole history of California within a couple of weeks and showed us how to take good notes. Her constant enthusiasm for history, kind smile, and great care for her students showed me how fun history and learning overall could be. When tutoring at Kid By Kid, I hope that I can share the same passion and enthusiasm that I have for what I teach and make their learning experience thorough and fun. Maybe someday they can share their passions with other students!

Why you do KBK (4+ sentences): When I first started at Kid by Kid, I wanted to use my passion for math and reading/writing to teach younger students in these areas. Since then, I have grown as a mentor and learner due to the KBK experience. More importantly, KBK has also enabled me to make valuable connections with students that I would not have made elsewhere. I have had several students with whom I have connected, especially during the ‘break time’ allotted in sessions. Here, I have found students’ passions and interests, such as art and puzzles. Once, I was even able to deliver a Halloween gift to a student in person at their house. Interactions like these have shown that KBK is a valuable experience for both learners and mentors.
