I am a Master Teacher with several years of experience teaching Learning Disabled students in the NYC Public School System. I have worked with students of all levels and created differentiated lesson plans and IEPs to meet each student's individual needs. I understand that not all children learn the same way and that every student has gifts and talents that need to be discovered and allowed to grow.
I am trained in the Wilson Reading program and Schools Attuned. These programs offer students the ability to learn reading and writing in a way that builds on their strengths and compensates for their weaknesses.
I believe all students can learn given the right instructional opportunities, patience, understanding, compassion and dedication.

November 2011-- It's very true what they say about first impressions. In the beginning, I had contacted a few tutor's through the WyzAnt website. When we were given permission to communicate via phone, the only tutor that phoned me was Ms. Lageshia. She wanted to obtain more information in regards to the area where my child needed help. In doing that she had led me to believe that she would be great for my child. Thus far, she has been just that! She really takes an interest in the concerns of my child. If a math problem arises that we cannot solve, we give it to Ms. Lageshia and the problem is solved. In addition, she prepares lessons that will help improve in the areas where my child is having difficulties. Furthermore, my child tells me that she is very patient, explains and demonstrates problems in great detail. My child is very fond of her (another very important aspect). With that said, I truly appreciate her and believe that my child is in great hands.
Update, 8/11/12-- My daughter really needed to improve in math. With Ms. Lageshia's help, my daughter's state math score has increased to a level 3. This is a score that can get her in to a very good high school.
Goal accomplished. Ms. Lageshia, we can not thank you enough.
This is my second lesson I can't make an evaluation yet. But, I could at this present we seem to be having good communication with how we can help my son at home I'm hoping we see great improvement in the near future.
Lageshia M. tutors my 4th grade son in developing his writing skills and is providing him with strategies to focus his attention to the task at hand. Lageshia provides my son with interesting and very practical assignements and strategies. She is very patient and thorough. Lageshia also has a good sense of humor. My son has made improvements in his writing and focusing skills since Lageshia has been tutoring him for several weeks now. My son also enjoys her visits. Lageshia also provides me with detailed explantion of what has been reviewed with my son. In addition, Lageshia provides me with written strategies and checklists that I can use with my son on my own. This is very helpful so taht my son can get in teh habit of understanding and performing those writing techniques and strategies.
Lageshia is a very knowledgable teacher who takes the extra steps to ensure that her student learns and improves. She is a lso very nice. I highly recommend using her as a tutor.
Lageshia M. related very well with my daughter. Once she found out what was wrong she setup a detailed outline that will help get my daughter out a lot!
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.
