About Latashia

I'm a tutor and academic writing coach with a BA in Anthropology and a MA in Medieval History. I also have a minor in Linguistics that allows me to be able to analyze semantics and grammar. I have worked professionally as a tutor for over 10 years, assisting K-12 students as well as college students. As a tutor, I provide help with math, reading/writing, and science as well as give homework help.

As a writing coach, I help college students who need help developing their research papers. Essays, research papers, and other writing projects will become easier to tackle once you learn the proper method for producing strong and clear ideas. A writing coach becomes your partner, so that you can write with confidence. You receive guidance and feedback on your content so that subsequent writing projects will be easier to undertake.

As a writing coach, I offer help with: developing a strong, clear thesis, creating a clear detailed outline, organizing ideas and information, draft revision, strengthening grammar, using sources to improve research strategies, and using bibliographic citations.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

English

I can offer help in the areas of essay construction, literacy, vocabulary and grammar. I consider myself an expert in all of these areas, but have the most experience in essay construction, whereby I help students learn how to write essays the proper way.

Literature

I not only have experience teaching literature, I myself use various literary devices in my own short story writing. I teach students how to dissect a piece of literature and comprehend it with ease.

Reading

I have taught ESL and have been a literacy tutor for several years. My method of teaching students how to read builds confidence and ensures that they continue to excel.

Writing

I have many years of experience with coaching students on how to be exemplary writers. I know what it takes to do great research in order to produce an A paper.
