About Wapa

I am a graduate of American University with a Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Bachelor's in Economics from Spelman College, and I have extensive experience working with both children and young adults in both academic and recreational environments.

I currently tutor young adults (in college and grad programs) and provide writing services, career coaching for college seniors and recent graduates. Most recently, I tutored 5th graders at the Mother Caroline Academy in Dorchester and middle school students in the Boston Area. Prior to that, I was virtually involved with METO foundation, where I tutored urban youth in Arts and Science as well as mentored senior high school students to prepare for college.

My ability to work with students, teachers and parents in order to find out their weakest points, and the aspiration to work towards providing strengthening services has been commended many times. Moreover, my know-how to design and conduct workshops and develop interactive materials for my students would enable me to produce excellent results.
In addition to tutoring children academically, I also have coached children’s dance lessons and arts and crafts lessons. Through both experiences, I have developed an understanding of different learning styles and a realization of how important it is to make learning fun.

I have had a career in human resources and coached and mentored many individuals to get self sustaining jobs.

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.

Business

I have a degree in economics and worked with 2 start up organizations. One was for a virtual online program for American University and Syracuse University. The other was as the Director of business development for a start up non profit. Working with both organizations gave me insights to the challenges that organizations have when starting up as well as the successes they feel. In addition, I have experience working in organization development for mid size to larger organizations. My experiences range from Human Capital to Finance.

College Counseling

I have mentored and counseled both high school and young adults during their college search prior to college years and during their time in college. I also worked with a workforce development consulting organization. During these times, I consulted with community and state colleges across the country using labor market data to identify demand and tailor curriculum to employment needs. I believe this gives me an advantage when talking to individuals about college choices, experiences and courses.

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft office products everyday at work and I used it for my 100 page thesis in undergrad and 75 pages in graduate school.

I am familiar with the capabilities of Microsoft word and know what you can do and what you can't do "easily".
