About Shelisha


Bio

I have spent my whole life helping people.

As a teacher, I have helped children, youth and adults improve their writing, reading and math skills so that they can pass my class, do better in their own class or pass a standardized test such as the GED, FCAT etc. Yes, I have taught for the often dreaded GED test! This experience allowed me to guide students to successfully passing the test. Sssh! Don't tell anybody that I told you but the secret to success is Never Give Up!

I have spent my whole life helping people.

As a teacher, I have helped children, youth and adults improve their writing, reading and math skills so that they can pass my class, do better in their own class or pass a standardized test such as the GED, FCAT etc. Yes, I have taught for the often dreaded GED test! This experience allowed me to guide students to successfully passing the test. Sssh! Don't tell anybody that I told you but the secret to success is Never Give Up!

I have over six years of professional experience combined with a degree in English and pursuit of a Master's Degree in ESE with an emphasis on reading. My professional experience includes teaching remedial students K-12, teaching GED courses and of course being a classroom teacher.

I am experienced in helping students to set, to meet and to exceed their personal goals. I have taught individuals how to use computers, seek employment, improve their life skills, read, write, and improve their grammar and math etc. If you want to know how to learn, I am the teacher for you. I firmly believe that a good teacher is a facilitator of knowledge and teaches you how to identify your strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to teach you how to use your strengths and support/decrease your weaknesses. I am skilled in learning strategies, and I am capable of teaching you how to incorporate these strategies into your learning style. If you don't know your learning style, I can assist you with identifying it.

Excellent communicator and knowlegable tutor

Shelisha took the time to interview my son to find out his challenges and his needs which made him more comfortable and receptive before actually getting into the academics. She was patient and communicated so he understood easily.

Nicole, 1 lesson with Shelisha

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

She helped me with planning my writing before I start answering my extended response. I like the fact that she's patient with me, and she helped me with having a different point of view about planning a response.

Nemiya, 5 lessons with Shelisha

Sweet, patient, and makes her lessons fun!

After talking on the phone with Shelisha, I knew she would get along with my son and daughter and I was right. As we emigrated from Europe we soon found out that our children knew nothing about writing an essay and they got really frustrated with getting straight F grades. School tried to help them out but honestly said it still was very hard on them. Shelisha came to our home knowing this would be a big challenge to get a 4th grade student and a 7th grade student to understand all and to be able to write different essays. Our children are starting to get confident in the writing and look forward to Shelisha's lessons. Her picture words are a favorite game and the understanding that it brings is what they need. I would without any doubt recommend Shelisha to any parent that feels like their children could do better. Shelisha loves to read and tells my children about all the adventures they can find in books. Then she tells them that these adventures are the same as their daily stories and that she loves to read about those on paper in details. I mean.. a teacher that wants to know what you have been reading, makes jokes with you AND assists in your progress. Shelsiha, you rock!

Great Tutor

My husband and I were very happy with Shelisha's first lesson for our son, and the most important thing is that my son really likes the way she explains. She is very knowledgeable, with a lot of experience. We look forward to seeing her again.
