My name is La Wanda and I welcome an opportunity to introduce you to my world of learning, where subjects become fun and relevant. For example math, it's a lot of numbers, but I show you how to make them come alive, which makes the subject easier to understand. Teaching is not a job for me, it is a gift and it is a passion ... something I love to do.
I currently work for the Higley Unified School District, HUSD, as a district tutor, and certified substitute teacher for the past 6 years. Students love my teaching ability and I'm often referred back to tutor some of the same students throughout the whole school year.
I also work for the district as a Homebound Education Instructor. Some of my students have been with me for as long as 3 years because I have an unusual way of helping them grasp the most challenging subjects. Parents really welcome the sight of their children learning, loving it and understanding it. And if safety is a concern, please know that the HUSD requires a back-ground check and fingerprint card and both of them I have.
In addition to my teaching career, I have a history of on-the-job training and formal training as a Network Engineer, Accountant and Project Manager. Working and training in corporate America has given me a rich work history that I draw from as I guide and prepare you for higher learning.
In regards to my tutoring methods, it is a given that a one-size fits all will not work. However there are two methods that I use often and find to be helpful. The direct approach works best when you have little or no knowledge about a given subject. It simply means that I am more actively involved in discussing and demonstrating the subject. The indirect approach works best when you are familiar with a subject, but need prompting to help remember or understand certain areas. This is best achieved with pointed questions that help you extract from what you previously learned.
My formal education includes the following accomplishments.
School of Ministry (Minister)
Project Management Certificate
Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer
Certified Internet Information Server 4
Bachelors in Business Administration
Emphasis in Accounting)
I want to thank you in advance for an opportunity to serve, inspire and educate you through my wonderful world of “live learning”.
