About Telisha


Bio

My love of math began in middle school after I realized how beautiful it is and how it is applied to everyday life. That love of math influenced my decision to major and graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics from Georgia State University. I began volunteering as a tutor between 2006 and 2009 in mathematics from elementary to College Algebra and started again in 2012, the same year I joined WyzAnt.

My love of math began in middle school after I realized how beautiful it is and how it is applied to everyday life. That love of math influenced my decision to major and graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics from Georgia State University. I began volunteering as a tutor between 2006 and 2009 in mathematics from elementary to College Algebra and started again in 2012, the same year I joined WyzAnt.

It gives me a great feeling seeing students "light up" after understanding the concept and gaining confidence. When solving math problems there's more than one way to come to a solution. My goal is helping people remove their fears in math. The best way to retain information that is taught is by teaching others and practicing. Students will first try problems themselves so it helps to see where they are truly having problems, and boost their confidence at the same time. Patience, determination, and hard work generate positive results. If you want a tutor who is willing to go the extra mile for you then look no further.
I greatly look forward to working with you.

Subjects

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

This is the subject where most students learn basic arithmetic such as the four basic operations and its applications. Students also learn to count money, telling time, identify graphs and shapes, basic problem solving, and measurements. My tutoring approach would be a combination of visual, verbal, and hands-on learning depending on the learning style of the student. Per the request of the student/or parents additional worksheets could be provided at no charge.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is a building block from elementary math and prealgebra combined. Students will see real-world connections using algebra with areas in finance, calculating distances, construction, and many more while using variables, equations, and graphs to find out.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a continuation of algebra 1. Usually taken after geometry or together. It goes a bit more in depth in learning equations and functions and introduce more challenging subjects such as exponential and logarithmic functions, quadratic functions, rational equations and functions, and matrices and determinants.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have over 4 years of studying Calculus including the study of Vector Calculus (which is physics base). Calculus is the study of how things change and the mathematical model is used for an example, building a bridge with solid foundation below water, calculating health premiums for potential patients with certain risk factors involved, etc. Specifically I enjoy such topics such as finding limits, definition of limits, integrals, convergent and divergent series, mean value theorem, L'Hospital Rule, ratio test, area, and studying infimum and supremum.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is about shapes and their properties. Level of expertise: I am very comfortable in tutoring basic/elementary geometry to most high school levels. I will be a limited help in writing geometric proofs for I will have to refer to additional sources. Writing proofs can be tricky and it requires familiarity with multiple theorems to provide a single proof.
Prealgebra

Prealgebra

This was the subject that jump started my passion for math. Prealgebra is just like a follow-up from elementary math course. The subject includes introduction to integers, order of operations, writing algebraic expressions, equations, fractions, decimals, percentages, proportions, inequalities, and more properties. My teaching style would be a combination of visual, verbal, and hands-on depending on the learning style of the student. Per the request of students or parents additional worksheets could be provided at no charge.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

During my collegiate career as a math major undergrad, I've taken upper-level math courses including Linear Algebra. I've participated in group study sessions as well as independent studies and had to devote at least 30-35 hours/week of studying. While I was taking the second course of Linear Algebra, I used MATLAB software as a class project to solve complex matrices and determinant systems as well as solving for eigenvectors/values. I would love the opportunity to tutor this subject because I've mastered it, can teach students how to study for this course, and it is a fun course overall.
Logic,

Logic

My exposure to Logic came while taking my first abstract math course. I've learned to use truth tables and understood conditional and bi-conditional statements. Using Boolean logic is my favorite type of logic areas.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is branch of mathematics that studies triangles and their relationships between their sides and angles. Trigonometric functions are most simply defined using the unit circle. This topic will include angle measures, pythagorean theorem, trig functions- the magic identity, the addition formulas, double-angle and half-angle formulas, and product and sum formulas, trig equations, hyperbolic trig, and many more.

Trellany, 2 lessons with Telisha

Great Math tutor

We started all over basic stuff, like sum, minus, multiplication. To find out where my weakness are and get my GED. Her patience got me! Thank you, Telisha! Looking forward for our next lessons.

Sara, 2 lessons with Telisha

Calculus

She made things a lot clearer and easy to understand. She went through every problem and equation and showed my how to solve them, and why they were solved that way, strep-by-step.

Franetta, 2 lessons with Telisha

Was very kind and she learned alot about how he learns.

She taught my son math and he was happy with his lesson today โ˜บ she also figured out how he learns best. I'm very sastifed with her and I will recommend her to my family or friends or in the future.

Lisa, 1 lesson with Telisha

Great tutor

She's patient, good at what she does and knows how to reach you just where you're at in your lesson. She was available every week as we planned and like her so much that we're going to continue using her for the rest of the school year.

Shantel, 4 lessons with Telisha

Bottoms Up

Well to begin Telisha was very welcoming. She introduced her lesson plans and also listened to my own assessment . This was only the beginning and I feel as if she's totally prepared to continue with our sessions. Thank You

Jason, 3 lessons with Telisha

Excellent and Patient Instructor

Telisha was able to help me get a visual understanding of Algebra 2. She took the time to explain problems in detail and helped me gain a new found confidence as I move forward with my studies.

Tutor responded:

I'm so glad to help and also help gain your confidence!

Great, wonderful, she knows her stuff

My daughter is happy, I'm happy, what else matters! I scheduled weekly sessions! Thanks so much Telisha. See you next week!

Isa, 11 lessons with Telisha

Very Patient

Telisha was great. She explained things in a way that made it easy for me to understand. She was patient and didn't get frustrated when I didn't understand something! I will use her again if ever needed! She helped me pass both my math classes!!

Demica, 1 lesson with Telisha
Tutor responded:

Thank you Demica. It also has been a pleasurable experience working with you as well! Having plenty of patience is what it's all about, along with good communication. I'm so proud of you and wish you much success in your future endeavors. You made my job easier and worthwhile.
