About Aynslee

Whether you are currently struggling with a course, or have an upcoming course that you would like to get a head start on, one-on-one tutoring can greatly improve positive development of your educational abilities by increasing mastery of critical skills, improving your overall academic performance, building self-confidence, and driving you to meet and exceed your academic goals. I have over fifteen years of tutoring experience--kindergarten through college--and over twenty years of experience working with children in both childcare and academic settings. I graduated from LSU in Shreveport in May of 2012 with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in English. I served on the Board of Editors for SPECTRA in 2009 and have judged the regional debate tournament at LSU-S for the past three years. I enjoy literature for education and pleasure. I am a licensed Medical Transcriptionist, coached a five-to-six year old soccer through Bossier Parks and Recreation, am a trained, certified Science Fair judge through LSU-S; am a former CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for the Caddo Parish Juvenile Court, and am a registered Caddo Parish substitute teacher. I also taught 8th Grade Enriched Math, Algebra, and ELA, as well as 4th grade Math and Science. I believe that communication skills are essential for students today--both written and verbal communication skills--and I strive to help every student I tutor to reach his/her goals in the most effective, efficient, and professional manner possible. Consultations under one hour are complimentary (consultations lasting more than one hour will be billed at the current hourly rate). I look forward to meeting with you and your son/daughter so we can get started on the road to success today! Whether you are currently struggling with a course, or have an upcoming course that you would like to get a head start on, one-on-one tutoring can greatly improve positive development of your educational abilities by increasing mastery of critical skills, improving your overall academic performance, building self-confidence, and driving you to Read more

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.

ACT English

If you are planning to attend a university after high school graduation, be aware that most, if not all universities, require a minimum score on the math portion of the ACT in order to enter into college algebra. If your ACT Math score doesn't meet the requirement, you will most likely have the option to take and pass an exam before entering into the regular college algebra course. If you are unable to pass this exam, you must first take an introductory or refresher course in math (pass/fail only, non-credit course) before you are allowed to enroll in college algebra. The same holds true for enrollment in basic English courses. For this reason, you will want to do as well as possible on these portions of the ACT to avoid having to pay for additional entry exams or lose valuable class time taking refresher courses.

ADD/ADHD

I currently hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from LSU in Shreveport (graduated May 2012). I have been an educator at Youree Drive AP Middle Magnet School and North Highlands Performing Arts Elementary School, both of which I was responsible for working with students with various learning disabilities, including ADHD with and without Hyperactivity, as well as conducting all aspects of PBIS and Behavior Modification. Furthermore, I have experience working with students and children who suffer from various learning disabilities and mental handicaps.

Algebra 1

Mastery of the information and skills presented in an Algebra I course is critical for students in general, but especially for those who are college-bound. Math classes are like stepping stones in that before a student can successfully complete a Trigonometry course, for example, the student must first possess a strong foundation and understanding of Algebra and Geometry. In the state of Louisiana, Algebra I is required (with a passing grade) in order to earn a high school diploma.

Biology

I have been a private educator for over fifteen years and a Caddo Parish Schools Educator, having taught Algebra I, 8th Grade Enriched and Honors Math, 4th Grade Mathematics and Science; and also completed over 20 credit hours of college science courses.

Common Core

I am familiar with and have taught CCSS (Common Core State Standards) for both 8th and 4th grades in Caddo Parish. I have also earned CEUs (Continuing Education Units) over the past four year for CCSS. As a fourth grade teacher, I even offered parent training to help parents better understand CCSS methods, allowing them to better assist their own children with homework and studying. Additionally, I have three children of my own who are currently enrolled in Caddo Schools and I work with them daily.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a certified and registered substitute teacher for Bossier Parish which required me to pass an exam. I am currently a registered substitute teacher in Caddo Parish (my college credentials permit to substitute in any Caddo Parish school). I am a Psychology major at LSU in Shreveport and have completed courses in Child, Adolescent, and Lifespan Psychology. I have worked with ECE, elementary, and middle school students - through substitute teaching and private tutoring - since 2002.

Elementary Math

Mastery of basic math skills is essential for progression throughout school from start to finish. Math classes work like building blocks: a student must have a firm grasp on the mathematical concepts in the current grade to be prepared to understand and master the math skills which will be presented in subsequent grades. It is critical that any difficulties in mathematics be addressed and corrected sooner, rather than later. The higher the grade level for a student with math difficulties, the more difficult it is to catch up and get on track with classmates at the current grade level.

Elementary Science

I taught 4th grade math and science at North Highlands Performing Arts Elementary School. I was responsible for writing lesson plans, designing activities, conducting classes in the science lab, and more.

English

I have superior reading, writing, comprehension, and public speaking skills. I completed my minor in English at LSU in Shreveport with a 3.9 GPA.

GED

On average, high school graduates have significantly higher annual incomes than non-graduates. Getting your GED can increase your earning potential and help prepare you to enter a community or technical college.

Geometry

I taught Algebra I in previous years and have also tutored GT Geometry students and Algebra II students in the past. Algebra I is a gateway course into Geometry and mastery of both courses greatly improves skills needed to pursue higher education.

Grammar

I have superior reading, writing, comprehension, and public speaking skills. I completed my minor in English at LSU in Shreveport with a 3.9 GPA. I have completed a Linguistics course and achieved excellence in public speaking and communications. Effective communication skills are essential; and strong writing skills begin with proper grammar.

Handwriting

I have been working with students (outside of my family) since 2003. I have a strong organizational skill set and pay attention to detail. I have extensive experience in letter formation, in both print and cursive, as well.

Microsoft PowerPoint

MS PowerPoint is an excellent software choice for making presentations that really stand out and serve their purpose to a specific audience. Graphics, animations/effects, background music, and rehearsed timings are wonderful options available when using PowerPoint. I have over 15 combined years of experience using MS PowerPoint in business as well as in college and teaching.

Praxis

As a former English Education major, I was exempt from the PRAXIS I exams because my ACT scores exceeded the minimum scores required for exemption. I currently tutor PRAXIS prep and have access to valuable preparation resources which are used during exam prep lessons. For students who need that extra individual guidance in preparation for these major exams, lessons from an experienced tutor will likely be much more beneficial to the student as opposed to using group preparation in classroom settings. Additionally, I have teaching experience and am certified in ACT Reading and Science, GRE, and SAT Math, Reading, and Writing. Furthermore, these exams contain very similar material to the material presented in the PRAXIS exams.

Prealgebra

I am a former Algebra instructor, including Prealgebra, current employee of the Caddo Parish Public School System, and college graduate (Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in English).

Psychology

Psychology is simply the study of the human mind. Psychology appears in so many areas of our daily lives and is critical in understanding and appreciating how interaction occurs between individuals as well as larger populations. Psychology also influences so many simple things in society. I've been fascinated with Psychology since I was in the sixth grade and am completing my Psychology degree at LSU in Shreveport.

Public Speaking

I spent about ten years in Advanced and Honor Choir - this experience enabled me to become a very articulate speaker. I completed a public speaking course at LSU in Shreveport, and earned an A in the course. I have, at the personal request of the Debate Coordinator at LSU in Shreveport, judged the regional debate tournament held at LSU in Shreveport for two consecutive years. Additionally, I have held offices in both the Biology and Writer's Clubs at LSU in Shreveport and have given many oral presentations for those organizations in addition to oral presentations given for 300 and 400 level English courses. Furthermore, I have performed in front of audiences consisting of 300 or more people on multiple occasions.

Speech

I spent ten years in advanced chorus working to perfect my vocal skills in articulation, diction, and pronunciation. I have a minor degree in English from LSU in Shreveport and have completed Linguistics and Public Speaking courses, earning a high A in those courses. Additionally, I have several years experience working with students to master reading and phonics, and have worked with students who have/had minor-to-moderate speech difficulties. My educational experiences in English and Literary coursework, as well as the skills mastered in honor and advanced chorus, have enabled me with the skills to pass on the skill and confidence needed to speak publicly with pride and confidence.

Vocabulary

I have superior reading, writing, comprehension, and public speaking skills. I completed my minor in English at LSU in Shreveport with a 3.9 GPA. Both written and oral communication skills are essential. A strong and broad vocabulary is a critical component in all areas of communication and provides a sturdy foundation for improved standardized test scores.
