Welcome. I am Rashida. I love learning and sharing my knowledge. I have several years of advanced education and professional work experience. I am currently the founder and managing director of a small consulting company based in Virginia. One of the primary focuses of the company is the academic, social, and financial success of children and their families. I strongly believe that children are our future and that education is one of the biggest keys to success.
As a former mental health counselor working with children and adults in the schools and the community, I realize that everyone needs something different to be successful and accomplish his or her goals. As a tutor, I use a combination of traditional methods and individualized learning techniques. Over the years, I have helped scores of students and professionals to develop high-level reading, writing, English, and presentation skills. The most important skills I have as a tutor are the ability to explain things in a clear way, the ability to listen, patience, and the ability to learn from my students.
I have tutored students of all ages in a variety of subjects. Primarily, I tutor middle and high school students in English related subjects. I also provide assistance to college students and working professionals in the areas of career development and employment. My areas of expertise include: reading, writing, English, editing and proofreading, interview skills, career development, business analysis, and law.
If you are applying to college, graduate or professional school, I can provide insights on the application process and writing a compelling personal statement. If you are preparing for an important interview, my tips and guidance will give you a “leg up” over the competition. If you are struggling with an academic subject, I can help you improve your grades and your school experience.
During the first tutoring session, I evaluate a student for problem areas and learning style. Next I gather information about the student's goals for tutoring, and the parents if applicable. Lastly, I develop a plan to reach the identified goals. All tutoring sessions will focus on mastering current academic work. This may include any necessary remedial skill development, workbook practice, tutoring homework, and referrals to helpful services.
I have availability on most weekday evenings, as well as Saturdays and Sundays.
