About Taneka

In the past I've interned as a peer Educator, where I educated the people of my community about Sickle Cell Disease. This required me to go to different sections of a Health Clinic and do public speaking, in addition to handing out brochures. I've also volunteered with New York Cares and did community service where I assisted children in sports and arts and crafts. I love to educate and I'm patient, honest, intelligent and enjoy cooking.
Over the summer of 2012, I worked as a cooking counselor at Lake Bryn Mawr camp. I was a counselor for about 10 girls aged 11-12.I've been a peer Leader/Teacher's Assistant for a little over a year now. I've tutored HSE students for nine months at the Brooklyn Educational Opportunity Center (Math,Science,Reading,Social Studies). I privately tutored College Level Biology Prealgebra and ACT Science.

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've taken Math for years. Junior High, Elementary and college. I took up to Calculus 2 and I love Math.

Biology

I am a college Senior at Medgar Evers College. Hopefully by the end of Spring I will receive my BS in Biology. I find Biology, especially labs, very interesting.

Elementary Math

I've taken Math for years. Junior High, Elementary and college. I took up to Calculus 2 and I love Math.

Elementary Science

I am a college Senior at Medgar Evers College. Hopefully by the end of Spring I will receive my BS in Biology. I find science, especially labs, quite interesting.

Grammar

I believe that grammar isn't stressed enough after Junior High School. This means that it is up to the student to make it a part of their everyday language.This helps with both High School and College English.Knowing your tenses will go a long way.

Prealgebra

I've taken Math for years; Junior High, Elementary and college. I took up to Calculus 2 and I love Math.

Psychology

I took Intro Psychology as a Biology major and I wish I took more Psychology courses. Psychology is interesting if you take the time to read the textbook and you grasp the concept.

Reading

I love reading. It helps me to be creative and it increases my vocabulary. I hope that whoever I tutor in this area will adapt a love of Reading as well.

Spanish

Me gusta lenguas extra├▒os y espanol es facil a aprender! I took Spanish in high school and also college.I have taken up to intermediate Spanish, all of which were predominantly writing classes.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary is easy to decipher, once it's used in context. It helps to have a good command of the language to which it is related. The tone of the speaker plays a role in the meaning of a word.

Writing

I love writing. I have taken up to World Literature in my course of study. Writing is fun as long as you focus on your thesis statement!
