Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I have helped many young adults achieve success on the ASVAB. This is important to me because of my respect and admiration of people who serve in the Armed Forces and the importance of what they do. It is very important for one to get into the right program, within their choice or branch of the military so they can best utilize their skills and abilities. I am very thorough in breaking down information, especially mathematics and explaining it in ways that will help refresh your memory. Also, I can teach and help with new concepts if necessary. Although the ASVAB has mathematics that range from arithmetic to Algebra 1, the questions can be challenging because of their word problem format. I will help you master these types of problems as well as help you in the other sections that you want to study for.
Praxis,

Praxis

I am a Maryland certified teacher who successfully passed both Praxis 1 and 2 on the first try. I can help you develop better study skills and strategies to help you be successful, too. I will tutor you in all parts of the Praxis that you need help. I can also help coach you through and show you some useful techniques to help you overcome test anxiety.

Great help for my son!

Orisha was able to help us on short notice. I spoke with her on Friday and by Sunday my son already is more knowledgeable and well on his way to a great score on the ACT exam. She set his goal and made a plan to follow. He actually looked forward to his session. Thank you Orisha!

Ronda, 1 lesson with Orisha

Patient and knowledgeable

My son feels comfortable with Orisha. He enjoys his sessions and is positive that he will pass his math class if he continues his sessions with Orisha. She helped break down the word problems for better understanding. She helps my son plan ahead.

Knowledgeable, Thorough, Captivating and Patient

Orisha was knowledgeable, thorough and patient while tutoring my daughter on some complex precalculus problems. My daughter thought she was very good, and will definitely use her again. Precalculus was not a requirement when I graduated from high school, so I sat in on the first session to observe Orisha's teaching style. She was captivating, and left me wanting to come back with my daughter for another session. A very good find on Wyzant !

Denise, 2 lessons with Orisha

Kind and Patient

My son only had one session so far, but was very kind and patient. She knows how to talk with kids to make them feel comfortable. It was a great first session, and I look forward to continuing our future lessons. I encourage anyone looking for a tutor to give her a chance, you will not be disappointed.

Derrik, 8 lessons with Orisha

Patient and knowledgeable Math Tutor

We just began our lessons with Orisha, covering some of the basics missed with PreAlbebra and also covering Algebra concepts currently studying. She has been very patient, communicates well explaining why/how and I have seen my son be more engaged with/at school; so a little bit of a boost in his self confidence!

Karen, 22 lessons with Orisha

Excellent tutor with patience!

Orisha is extremely knowledgeable and patient helping my son with his common core math subject. I am very please with his progress. Thank you again Orisha for your assistance!

Terry, 5 lessons with Orisha

Persistent and Patient

Student: She was very articulate in the way she teach. Was very persistent, made sure the student fully understands before moving on. She was also very friendly. Parent: I've been really stressed and overwhelmed working with my 16 y/o over his grades. He argues all the time and feels like we're always giving him a hard time. After one session with Orisha, he had a full change of attitude. He said he learned things he hasn't learned in school and asked if he could come back the next day! Of course I said yes!

Naomi, 2 lessons with Orisha

Patient and loves helping her students understand.

I have only had one lesson so far, but I am pleased with her approach with my daughter. She is not intimidating to the student.
