About Derissa

I have been teaching Language Arts for six years. I have enjoyed teaching students of all ages and skills sets, but have been consistently drawn to the middle grades.
I graduated with honors from The University of North Alabama, but have been in South Bend for the last 5 years. I taught for three years at an area career academy, where I enjoyed much success with my students.
I have a wonderful rapport with students and a love for helping students succeed.

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.

English

I am a certified, highly qualified language arts teacher. I have tutored students in English and feel quite comfortable helping students through the transition of 7th grade English.

Piano

I received my Associates Degree in Music from Northwest Shoals Community College. While there my focus was music theory, voice and piano, as well as performance.
I began playing piano when I was 12 years old, and took lessons until I was 16. I have always played, and I enjoy playing and writing music.
I have given private lessons to a number of students.

Reading

I am a certified English Language Arts teacher with ten years of experience. I have worked with students at all levels of academic success, and employ numerous reading strategies to lead them to complete confidence in their abilities. I teach summarizing short passages, using KWL charts, annotating passages, and several more. I also have students keep a reading journal.

Voice (Music)

I received my Associates Degree in Music from Northwest Shoals Community College. While there my focus was music theory, voice and piano, as well as performance.
I began singing publicly when I was 10 years old. I have always been a singer(with a natural perfect pitch and ear for harmony), and I enjoy playing and writing music.
I have given private lessons to a number of students. Teaching voice is fun, but the performance side is the best part.
I have about 10 years of professional singing experience, and I have also done some studio recording.
