About Zuri

I graduated from Howard University with a Business Management degree and then joined Teach for America to teach elementary school in New Orleans. I am able to tutor in a vast array of subjects. My favorite subject to tutor is Math. I also enjoy helping students with test studying,and career building. I have experience teaching elementary and middle school students. I have tutored high school students as well as college students. I choose to tutor because I appreciate all that my education has given me . I was also given help while in high school. I love seeing the lightbulb when a student finally understands a concept behind a math problem or the use of grammar in a writing prompt.

In my free time I love reading. traveling (my goal is to visit all 7 continents) ,working out , and watching movies.

Math is my favorite subject. I have always received A's in my math class, and also am able to teach based on the strategies the school uses.

I am a certified teacher in elementary education who has recently taken the GMAT in preparation for graduate school. I also have worked in an elementary school and have experience helping students with test prep.

I am in school full time and have a very flexible schedule. I will work to meet your needs , whether it is short term or long term tutoring.

I believe that every student can learn and deserves to use the approach that works best for them. In my first tutoring session , I aim to make the student feel comfortable and get a clear understanding of their needs. When tutoring I want the student to leave feeling confident that they can work on the subject themselves.

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.

Career Development

I completed a career course in undergrad with an A. I also majored in business management and graduated with a 3.4. I have worked with college students on resume building and professionalism in the workplace. I believe career development should be tailored to fit each students needs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach grades K-6 through the New Teacher project. I have successfully passed the Praxis requirements for my certification and have taught 1st grade for 3 years. I have also substitute taught students grades K-6 through Kelly Educational Services.

Handwriting

I taught first grade for three years. One of our main focuses was handwriting. We worked on writing neatly. For some students who were behind, we practiced upper case v. lower case.

Microsoft Windows

I have used Microsoft Windows for 10 years. On my job I use Microsoft Windows every day. I am able to teach student and adult learners how to use this operating system.

Phonics

In teaching first grade, phonics was the core component for teaching reading. I used reading mastery as well as word their way to supplement my lessons.

Praxis

In preparing to be a teacher, I successfully passed the Praxis requirements for my certification. I took and passed: Principles of Learning and Teaching: Grades K–6, and Elementary Education: Content Knowledge. I am able to help students study to take the Praxis. The Praxis has a lot of questions related to teaching in the classroom. My past work experience allows me to feel confident that I can tutor students and help the answer scenario questions and best practices for the classroom

Study Skills

In undergrad, I studied individually and with groups to successfully pass my classes. As a teacher, I taught students as young as six on strategies they should use to study for test at home. I also used my own study skills to study for standardized test at the same time I was working full-time.

Track & Field

I ran track for 4 years in high school. I ranked in the top 9 for four years.
