Hi, my name is Charisse. I graduated from Texas A&M University in May, 1998 with a Bachelor of Business Administration with an emphasis in Business Management. (Gig 'em Aggies!) My favorite subject is math. I first tutored friends when I was in high school who were struggling with math classes and found it to be very rewarding to help others struggling with a subject that I so clearly understood. I then began holding tutoring group sessions for my business calculus classmates in college who were struggling with understanding basic and advanced concepts. Watching them work through problematic areas and improve homework and test grades and eventually helping to raise their GPA gave me a great sense of accomplishment. I love helping others with spelling as well. Spelling and math seem to be the subjects that adults and students struggle with the most. They feel they will never get it or ever be a good speller, which I believe is far from the truth. I won the spelling bee in 3rd grade for my school and then went to Regionals where I was a finalist. Since, I've always enjoyed spelling and writing and helped many others improve upon their spelling, grammar and writing skills. I help others to understand certain "letter rules" and with memory techniques, I am able to help others achieve improved results and make math and spelling much less "scary" with my hands on and easy-to-learn approach.
I am married to a wonderful husband and father, and I am a step-mom to his two amazing children, Joe, who is an 8th grader at West Memorial Junior High in Katy, and Grace, who is a 4th grader at West Memorial Elementary. They are the joys of my life, along with my two dogs, Cosmo and Marley. I have a passion for animals and work with rescue groups to help find them forever homes, which they are so deserving of, as well as educating others of animal rights, cruelty, neuter/spay campaigns, illegal puppy mills & backyard breeders, and city & county animal shelter problems and new laws and regulations needed to protect our animals and provide humane treatment to all living beings.
I have been employed in various lines of work, including mostly accounting, office management and human resources. I have owned two businesses: a restaurant and bakery as well as an invitation company. My passion, aside from helping animals, has always been education & helping others, and I am currently enrolled in Web Centric Alternative Certification Program (WCACP) to obtain my teaching certificate to teach grades 4-8 (math) preferably, although my curriculum area is General Studies for grades 4-8. I hope to pass my content exam in the next couple months and begin full-time teaching this upcoming 2014-2015 school year. I hope you have learned a little about me, and if it seems we are a good fit for each other, I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve your goals of better understanding your subjects so you feel comfortable and confident in your studies. Best of luck to you on your educational journey!
