About Chiaka

I am a native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I came to Georgia in the summer of 1995 to attend Clark Atlanta University. After graduation I returned home briefly but have been a Georgia resident since 2000. I began substituting and realized I really enjoyed the classroom. While obtaining my teacher certificate I worked at night in a Microbiology Lab.
In my short eight years as a high school instructor I taught a wide range of subjects. They include Biology, Chemistry, Physical Science, Human Anatomy and Physiology, SAT Prep, Physical Science and Environmental Science. I have also participated in countless remediation efforts for the the Georgia High School Graduation Test, End of Course Tests and general science tutorials. Therefore, I have developed a passion for assisting students outside of the regular classroom environment. I have served both general education and developmentally exceptional students.

Overall, I have taught many high school subjects. I often incorporated test taking skills. These skills encourage students to evaluate information and diminish test anxiety. I reach beyond simple advice yet instead use methods such as drills, scaffolding information and diverse methods of practice. Most importantly, my trademark is incorporating the eight parts of a natural person's life. Students are encouraged to relate the current topic to family, career, health, education, friends, relationships, hobbies and finance.

Although my background is in Science I am also able to assist with critical thinking skills, writing compositions and life skills improvement through academics.

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.

Genetics

I taught high school Biology. A portion of one of the units is Genetics. Most of the time when I tutored Biology the students needed help with Genetics for testing.
