About Jelise

I am Jelise B., a college student with a passion for mathematics and sports/recreation. I currently study at North Carolina Central University pursuing a bachelor's degree. My major is Business Administration with a focus in Finance and Management. I have been tutoring for approx. 4 years now and have worked with elementary and middle school students. I began tutoring during high school by helping peers with their math assignments and my career started there. I have tutored through local elementary and middle schools and through Care.com. Subjects range from elementary and middle level math, pre algebra, algebra to home economics and tennis.

I prefer either one-on-one tutoring or small group based tutoring. I enjoy making the subjects I assist with as fun and easy as possible with the overall goal of understanding the topic(s) of that subject. Math is a part of our everyday lives and I will use examples to give the student more of a realistic approach. I have achieved high honors in all math courses I have taken since middle school. I have also received astounding Math SAT/ACT scores in high school. I was a candidate for the Mu Alpha Theta Math Honors Society in high school. I am able to assist peers, younger and older, with math skills that come natural to me that others may have difficulties with.

Since I was young, I was always infatuated with the outcome of food (how it would go from a table full of ingredients to the best plate of food ever to exist) and I have been taking a serious interest in culinary since then. I have taken culinary classes and also teach myself at home, with resources like cookbooks or online classes. I also take local classes in the Raleigh/Durham area to enhance my skills. My lessons are available to those who want to learn the cooking skill.

I have just joined WyzAnt to extend my tutoring services but I have been tutoring outside of online tutoring for a while. Feel free to contact me about any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to helping you reach your overall math goals or other goals I may be of assistance with!

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.

Tennis

I have played tennis for 7 years know and have applicable knowledge of the sport to teach to others. I demonstrate techniques and methods of participation while evaluating the pupil's strengths and weaknesses as possible recruits or to improve their technique to prepare them for competition or recreational fun. Knowing the techniques, skills and training it takes to play tennis, I am a great coach/instructor for all ages.
