About Orisha

Hello Potential Student!

It is my duty and destiny to help people learn and understand a variety of subjects! You WILL NOT be disappointed!

I am a Highly Qualified Tutor with over 20 years experience tutoring. I have over 5 years experience teaching at the college level and 7 years in the public and private schools. I have a clear background check and a Master's Degree in Education.

I have a lot of availability and will come to your home or meet at a library close to your home. I am also able to tutor online or at my home for a reduced rate. I work with adults as well as children. I also tutor small groups for a reduced per person rate!

I can help you in many subjects but my specialties are mathematics to the Pre-Calculus level, science and Standardized Test Preparation such as SAT, ACT, Accuplacer, ASVAB, and Praxis.

I really look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your learning goals!

Thanks.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a master's degree in Education and I am a former college professor in Mathematics. I have advanced professional certification in Mathematics Education.

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.

Cooking

I have great culinary skills. I have been cooking for over 30 years. I have a degree in biology with coursework in nutrition.

I know all about proper food handling and sanitation when it comes to food preparation.

I specialize in teaching others how to prepare quick, healthy, and delicious meals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold an advanced professional certification in elementary education up to grade 8.

I have been tutoring this age group for over 20 years and have been very successful.

I also was the executive director of the SES Program for a year and we worked with students in this age range and grade level.

Our program raised student scores by over 90%.

I am patient and able to work with students to understand concepts. I have multiple ways of explaining things that help students to grasp the skills and knowledge that they need to be more successful in their subjects.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching this subject for several years.

I have also been able to help students overcome math anxiety.

I am very patient and will let the student know that it is okay to make mistakes or not understand something.

Microbiology

I love Microbiology!

It was my favorite subject in college.

I am able to help students gain an understanding and use strategies and study skills to excel in this subject.

Nutrition

I am qualified to tutor in nutrition, because I have a degree in biology with several courses in health/nutrition.

I also practice healthy eating/living and am constantly researching ways to incorporate better nutrition into my life.

I was also with Weight Watcher's years ago and learned a lot about food values and nutrition by becoming a member and successfully losing weight through their program.

Phonics

I am a Maryland certified teacher who has been teaching for many years.

I also have a lot of experience teaching phonics and beginning reading skills to students.

I am very patient and have been successful at helping students and a few adults learn to read.

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.

Study Skills

I hold an advanced professional certification in elementary education up to grade 8, and I have taught at the college level for over four years.

I have been tutoring both children and adults for over 20 years and have been very successful.

I am patient and able to work with students to understand concepts and increase their organizational and study skills. I have multiple ways of explaining things that help students grasp the knowledge that they need to be more successful learners.
