I'm Tanisha!!! I am a graduate from Clark Atlanta University and Loyola University. I currently teach Middle School Math and absolutely enjoy it. It's funny because growing up I never really liked math, my teachers in Middle School always made learning math boring. But over the years, I have developed various strategies that help my students excel with math. I believe that learning should be fun and applicable to day-to-day life. So as an educator, I look for opportunities to help my students learn in a way that will make sense to them. And so far, I've been pretty successful with it.

I have been tutoring scholars off and on for the past 19 years. I incorporate lesson plans that align with Common Core State Standards. I also align my lessons with ISBE scope and sequence so that the students are prepared for the NWEA Map test in the Spring. I believe in tutoring because I have seen students, especially those who are English as a Second Language (ESL), make tremendous gains in math. I believe in private tutoring because it allows the scholar to receive more time and attention on a skill that they would not normally receive in the general classroom setting. Just a little testimonial, my shy, under-performing, ESL former student's confidence in math increased so much that upon her graduating 8th grade, she was able to go into high school and soar through freshman Algebra.

As a tutor, I want scholars to learn and enjoy math; then go out and have the confidence to apply what they have been taught in a Real World situation!!!

I am an outstanding tutor because I use Best Practice strategies that incorporate multiple modalities, I am calm, determined and patient. I speak math languages that young minds can understand in a fun and creative way. I layer my methodologies by beginning with a prerequisite assessment, I model with "I do, we do and you do" application. My goal is for students to independently apply math in a variety of situations. I strive to create an environment where mistakes are encouraged and where students can learn from their mistakes.

Team work makes the dream work, we are only as strong as our weakest link. Let's crush math together though introduction, instruction, rigor and gains. I look forward to working with you!!! Feel free to contact me with additional questions or to schedule a lesson.
