About Rashonda

I am an Electronics Engineer that loves to teach and tutor. I have over 20 years of tutoring experience. I started tutoring elementary math while I was in high school. After graduating high school, I continued to tutor high school students in my community.

After I obtained my bachelor's degree from Louisiana State University, I became a G.E.D. teacher for the school board for 2 years. I also have a Master's of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.

My concentration is in math but I am capable of tutoring all elementary subjects, in addition to math/science for high school students.

Thank you so much for the positive review, Lavangela! Your son is highly intelligent and determined and I am just excited to help out. It is always a pleasure working with families that are committed to excellence and that allow me to do what is necessary to ensure the success of the children. Thank you for the opportunity. I look forward to many more sessions!

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.

Computer Engineering

I have a bachelor's degree from Louisiana State University in Electrical Engineering, where Computer Engineering was my major.

Computer Science

Being that my major was Computer Engineering in undergraduate school and Electrical and Computer Engineering in graduate school, I have taken extensive computer science classes, including C, C++, Operating Systems, Computer Networks and Analog and Digital Communications.

Differential Equations

As an undergraduate and graduate student, I took courses in math and electrical engineering that involved learning how to solve for ordinary, linear and non-linear differential equations. The courses were geared towards relating applications in electrical and computer engineering.

Electrical Engineering

I have a master's degree from Johns Hopkins University in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Elementary (K-6th)

Over the course of my high school and college years, I privately tutored elementary school children in various subjects. I started at the age of 14. After college, I became a G.E.D. educator with the New Orleans Public Schools and went through training. The training involved teaching elementary subjects to adults that were on the grade school level.

My main focus is math because I like to encourage future careers in math/science. Although, I love motivating children to strive for excellence in all subjects. I believe children must have a strong foundation because it only builds from there. Seeing children "light up" when they finally understand what I'm explaining makes me proud. I know then that I'm making a difference. What that child learns, they will surely pass on to someone else.

Learning should always be fun for a child so I work with each child individually to find what ways I can make it fun for them.

Linear Algebra

As an undergraduate and graduate student in Electrical and Computer Engineering, I took courses that elaborated on the application, theories and techniques in Linear Algebra for engineering students. The courses included topics in vector spaces, linear mappings, systems of linear equations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, just to name a few.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Microsoft Windows for many years, to include Windows NT, Windows XP, Windows Home Edition and Windows 7. I have mastered the essentials about navigating the PC, including switching between applications, using applications side by side, using the keyboard shortcuts, using the keyboard without the mouse, browsing the web, setting up email accounts and even personalizing the PC to fit your needs.
