About Shenita

I started tutoring because I wanted to continue to apply what I am in learning in school plus I enjoy teaching others how to do math or accounting assignments if they do not understand. My passion is math but I am certainly open to other subjects so I will tutor and teach from the heart. I prefer to teach and tutor by using a more hands on approach by presenting the material to the student step by step. Once I have determined that the student understands how to complete an assignment or problem step by step, I then have them show me step by step what I did or said to make sure that they understand.

As far as my experience as a tutor, I have participated in Hands on Atlanta: Discovery Program. In that program we work with different schools in reading, writing, and math. Volunteers in this program help design different activities that will encourage students to utilize the different skills they have learned in math and English during the school week. I specialize in grammar, vocabulary, reading, language arts, punctuation, SAT English and Writing, ACT English and Writing. In Math, I specialize in Elementary Math, Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, ACT Math and SAT Math preparation and study skills. During the summer, I provide remediation and acceleration services to help the student prepare for the next school year.

I have worked with students with learning disabilities and from K-12 grade levels. I am available to work Sunday-Saturday from 3:00pm- 12:00am. I currently charge $40.00 per hour in person and $30.00 per hours online. During the first section, I complete a consultation so I can understand the need of the child or adult, what subject area is the biggest concern, and what time frame we will have to complete what we are trying to complete.

What makes me an outstanding tutor because I am patient and kind and will help my student work step by step in a problem to make sure they understand, let them try on their own, and guide them in that process.

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.

ACT English

I have completed and certified in a ACT/SAT math preparation course. I currently have a ACT/SAT prep book that contains all English/Math subjects that will be tested on the ACT/SAT math/ English test. With this book, I can assist the student in reviewing subjects that the student has already completed in school and help teach the student in subject areas that they are not familiar with.

ACT Math

The ACT math portion of the test contains subject areas related to Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. I have successfully tutored in all those subject areas and the students gained the necessary confidence needed to successfully complete the courses with a passing grade at their schools.

Algebra 1

I love Math and have successfully tutored math subject areas in Elementary school, middle, and high school related to home work and the milestone. Due to my tutoring , the student successfully understood the subject and was a lot more confident going into milestone testing.

Elementary Math

English

When I was in high school I took honors English and Literature so I learned to write research and analytical papers in APA format. When I was in college at Kennesaw State University and University of Phoenix, we were required to write papers weekly and for projects in APA format. We were expected to know how to reference, use correct wording, and correct grammar. Recently, I tutored students in SAT prep, milestone ,SAT writing, ACT English, and ACT writing.

Reading

Analytical reasoning of what you have read requires important preparation and I am willing to share that with students whenever I can because reading is the foundation for success in any subject no matter the grade level.

SAT Math

I have completed and certified in a SAT math preparation course. I currently have a SAT prep book that contains all math subjects that will be tested on the SAT math test.
