About Sakinah

I am currently an Educator(K-5) in a suburb in the Atlanta area and have been the last 12 years. I have taught every grade level from Kindergarten through fifth grade. I believe that every child can learn and each child learns differently. Once the child's learning style is identified, that is when the best learning takes place. Honing in on students strengths, also allows for the teacher to successfully build up their weaknesses.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, Master's Degree in Counseling, and Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Leadership. I have also just completed my ESOL (English Language Learners) endorsement which allows me to assist students that are not Native English Speakers also.
If interested, please do not hesitate to contact me. You will not be disappointed.

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.

ADD/ADHD

On a daily basis, I deal with students who are Autistic and have ADD/ADHD. I was trained in undergraduate school as well as in my Masters of how to deal with these students. These students require more time and patience, frequent breaks, and someone that is generally concerned about their well-being.

Bible Studies

I currently teach Sunday school for the students up to seventh grade at my church. I believe that the teacher in me, along with my knowledge, will allow the student to be successful.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an educator for 12 years and have taught every grade level K-5. I was also the overseer of the After School Remediation Program, as well as taught. During the school year, I am a tutor for Saturday School.

Phonics

I have taught EIP (early intervention program) in my school. This involves, especially when working with kindergarteners, the breakdown of words and words sounds which is phonics.

Praxis

I am currently a teacher and know what is expected in the classroom. On this test, there are some real life scenarios given for the student to use the knowledge learned in school, plus the experience they don't have in the classroom. I feel that I can give them this. I also used to score for Praxis so I know what is needed.
