About Kumba

Greetings,

I am a Master's student at Johns Hopkins University with a strong background in Math and Science.

I consider myself a life-long learner and enjoy working with motivated students. I have been tutoring for nearly a decade and have worked with students with a wide range of learning styles and differences and have provided them all with excellent study strategies. I am positive and patient, and will always find fun and creative approaches to make sure you truly grasp the material.

I benefited greatly from tutors myself and as a tutor I hold myself to a standard of excellence.

I look forward to working with you!

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.

French

I have studied the French language for over 13 years. I completed a series of college-level French courses taught by a native French speaker with straight A's. I studied abroad in Francophone West Africa for three years with an all French curriculum.

Reading

I have had rigorous training implementing high quality, curriculum-based, after-school academic enrichment for at-risk elementary/middle school youth in the Baltimore City Public School System. My work included facilitating an engaging elective class that responds to scholars' interests; leading weekly large group skill-building seminars; supervising and managing an intensive study hall of students from different schools; reviewing students' assignment notebooks upon their arrival; helping them to prioritize daily assignments, along with setting realistic time-tables with prioritized task-lists for longer-term projects; ensuring that homework is completed to a level of high quality by all students; assisting scholars in preparing for upcoming quizzes and tests and coach them to develop strong study skills; an reviewing students' assignments for accuracy and re-teaching necessary concepts.
