My name is Tamykah and I am 29 years old. I have been tutoring for over 10 years now, working with children of all ages and adults as well. I have always been great with people and have always loved learning, so tutoring comes very naturally to me. I enjoy tutoring all subjects but my favorites are definitely Elementary subjects because I love working with that age group. Helping with GED prep is something else I have grown to love. It is an amazing feeling to have a hand in helping someone get a second chance at life in that way!

I was in gifted and talented/magnet programs since I entered the country in the 3 rd grade up until 5th grade. Subsequently I was accepted into a rigorous preparatory program called Prep for Prep and this led me to the Dalton school. I graduated magna cum laude from John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a degree in Forensic Science. I have tutored at Sylvan Learning Center and have also done one-on-one tutoring independently.

I have a very hands-on and detail-oriented tutoring style that allows students to not only learn the information but retain it as well. I look forward to working with you.
