About Lavonda

I am an experienced math tutor for elementary, middle, and high school grades.

I have conducted several math classes online and solved assignments of elementary, middle and high school grades.

Students basic understanding of math concepts is of my primary concern and hence I provide them with ample examples having increasing level of toughness.

My teaching approach enables students to be aware of common pitfalls, during problem analysis and solving, to face the twisted problems with ease.

I also teach a life skills course which prepares students for the basic essentials needed for a successful life as well as test prep and career skills.

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.

ASVAB

If you are trying to get into the military and pass the ASVAB, I can help. I am professional in-home ASVAB tutor and have at least 3 years of teaching or tutoring experience and can help with the General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, and Mathematics Knowledge components of the ASVAB exam.

Career Development

I have taught life skills at a vocational college. The life skills course is comprised on teaching students the basic fundamentals needed to be successful in day-to-day life. The career development section of this course includes resume writing, interview preparation, helping students identify which career path is best to achieve their goals, development of a career portfolio, writing cover letters, and goal setting.

Prior to this position I also worked in the recruiting department for the second largest employer in south Florida, in Coral Springs Florida. I have recruited thousands of employees to keep all eight of locations fully operational and generating revenue. I held this position for three years before moving on. This gave me great insight to know and understand what employers look for in potential candidates/employees.

Elementary Math

Being one of the three "R's" ( Reading , Writing , Arithmetic ), Elementary Math skills are fundamental building blocks. The math skills learned in Kindergarten and Elementary School determine whether your child will be on an accelerated track to higher mathematics, or be left behind. In fact, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) recommend in their standards that young students should already be using algebraic reasoning during Elementary School.

I can maximize your child's mathematics potential. I can teach numbers and operations, Pre-Algebra concepts, Geometry, and Measurement. With activities, games, and manipulatives, I engage students' interest while teaching crucial math skills:)

Elementary Science

I am a recent graduate with my Bachelor's Degree in Exceptional student education. I am also reading and ESOL Endorsed. I am currently teaching in a General Education Setting therefore I have tested and hold and additional certification in Elementary Education. This certification shows I have what it tales to teach all of the core subjects. I have a student center pedagogy and believe in teaching in an environment conducive to learning.

Prealgebra

I am currently a fifth grade teacher employed by Larkdale Elementary school located in Broward County, Florida. I have been working with the fifth grade team and class for half of the school year. During my short time with the students six of my students did exceptionally well on their FSA math testing and were given the opportunity to take the advance placement test for sixth grade.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring privately for 5 years and I also work in an adult education school where a part of my job is to prepare students to pass the ATB (aptitude test similar to GED). I currently have a 95% pass rate with all my students. I understand that passing the test is not only about knowing the material but also having enough confidence to exhibit what you know.
