Kyra Wyllie is a graduate of German and psychology from Montclair State University in New Jersey. She studied abroad in Graz, Austria, from 2017–18 and fell in love with the beautiful country. Her experience in Austria made her realize her passion for teaching and helping others with English. In Graz, she worked as an English-speaking Nanny for an Austrian family and as a freelance English tutor.

When Kyra went home to the US, she graduated and took an additional certification course to get a TEFL certificate. In addition to this, She started working for a company called VIPKID, which pairs teachers from the US and Canada wth children in China via an online platform. She teaches one-on-one English courses that provide the children with fun and educational material.

Outside of work, Kyra enjoys being outdoors and partaking in activities such as hiking and swimming. She also loves to travel, broadening her horizons and furthering her knowledge of the world and other cultures.

Kyra is really looking forward to this wonderful opportunity as a TA at the HBLFA school in Kematen, Tyrol. She can't wait to learn more about agriculture and nutrition and gain experience teaching English in a classroom.
