About LaTanya

I attained my Bachelor of Arts in English from Northern Illinois University. During my college tenure, I had the opportunity to work in the public elementary schools as a Reading and Math tutor. From that position, I developed a strong desire to see Kindergarten through Eighth grade students improve in their academic endeavors.

My experiences also include over ten years of working in the areas of education and academic improvement for Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students. Currently, I am an Interventionist, which involves supporting students in their efforts to improve skills in areas such as, grammar, phonics, writing and reading comprehension. I develop and design innovative lessons and activities and take great pride in ensuring that each student I teach successfully progresses toward their individual goals. One of my core beliefs is that all children have the ability to learn, but have their own learning style. With that in mind, each lesson I provide is tailored to the child based on a short survey he and the parent receives.

I have a long-standing passion for educating and assisting others in reaching their full potential. I believe in heavily involved in the school community as well as the surrounding community, because each entity is a part of a child’s education. The more the child sees the teacher invested into him, the more he believes in his own success. I am particularly excited about the opportunity to motivate and support students. I believe that each student deserves an education from a quality instructor, and I have a genuine desire to assist students in their learning endeavors.

If you are interested in allowing me to be a part of your child's success story, please feel free to contact me! I offer Reading Improvement (ex. Reading comprehension, phonics, etc.) tutoring as well as Homework Assistance. My rates begin at $35/hour with multiple children discounts! I look forward to working with you soon.
