I have loved numbers since I started school. I think I would have been a mathematician, but Calculus killed me. My favorite subject is Algebra - I love, love, love it. As a kid, I remember having the one-minute drills and loved the competition. My love of numbers has led me to a career in bookkeeping. I understand the story that numbers tell and like nothing more than helping others understand them.
My tutoring experience started while in grade school and hasn't stopped. I have tutored graduate school classmates in Statistics, worked with Champion Learning Center (in NY) to tutor HS students, and I am currently tutoring my sisters in college. In helping students understand the subjects that are most troubling to them, I only ask that they stop saying, " I HATE __________!". Getting students to accept that a particular subject is difficult and possible to understand is the key to them understanding that they can conquer it.
Excel is probably my favorite program. I have been using it for over 20 years, beginning with my summer jobs. I taught myself how to use it. I have created elaborate spreadsheets using the program and continuously teach myself anything that I want to do with it.
By profession, I am a bookkeeper, so I use Quickbooks quite a bit and know that I can teach you the basics. By the nature of my profession, I have taught many people how to use Excel and Quickbooks. To date, I have not found anyone that I cannot teach.
In addition to the subjects and topics discussed, I can aid students with general homework help, study skills, all math subjects leading up to algebra/college algebra (preferably not Geometry) and French 1.
I tend to request the syllabus for each class so that I am aware of how fast the class is progressing. The syllabus also aids in creating the lessons for the student and how to integrate lessons for maximum impact and understanding.
I can come to the student. All I ask is for a quiet study place. If one cannot be provided, we can meet at my house or at a place near the student.
I look forward to working with you and know that no subject is too difficult to understand! I have loved numbers since I started school. I think I would have been a mathematician, but Calculus killed me. My favorite subject is Algebra - I love, love, love it. As a kid, I remember having the one-minute drills and loved the… Read more
LaKesha is honest and very patient. She goes out her way to find outside sources to help me with my tutoring sessions. I am so grateful that I found her!
LaKesha has made an impact on Isabella's school work. Lakesha has helped bring Isabella's math grade up from failing to a High C. We are hoping for continued progress on her next report card.
I think that LaKesha is a very patient tutor. She worked out every math problem with my son and focused on him going through every step. I think her strategy for my son is going to help him in the long run. She sat down with me to go through how she plans to help, the stage he is at, and what she wants to focus on for the next session. She also keeps in contact via phone texts and email. I never have a problem reaching her.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
