About Lakindra

In a nutshell, I am a passionate, driven, open-minded individual who is a strong proponent of education. I am very creative and I understand that everyone has a distinct method of learning. As a tutor, it my job to find out the best way that each student intakes information, and then use that method to make sure they are getting the information. Most importantly, I understand and put into practice that tutoring is not about giving answers but showing students how to arrive at the answers themselves.

I graduated from Syracuse University in 2009 with my B.A in Political Science. I also had a minor in African American History and was consistently on the Dean's List. I have experience giving workshops to both small and large groups. I have also tutored students in middle school and high school. I have years of experience in college counseling and career development as well. I am very aware of my strengths and weaknesses and always open to learning. We are all students in the classroom of life, and if you've stopped learning, you've must have stopped living too.

Please feel free to ask me any questions! I'm an open book!

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.

Career Development

I have given monthly job readiness workshops and I have 2 years experience as a job developer for a non profit government entity. I have also been trained by the Center for Career Services at Syracuse University.

I can assist you with Job Readiness Skills, Resume Development, Mock Interviewing, Job Search Techniques, How to market yourself to an employer, Follow-up Practices, Dress for Success

College Counseling

I can offer Fafsa Help, Financial Aid Assistance, Personal Statement creation and review, College Search, public and private (dream, moderate, and easy schools list), College Interviewing, and Specific College Applications.

I also assist with how to pick a major and college prep (lectures, syllabi overview, academic advisors, course review first year)

I have given 8-10 College Application Process workshops

English

I can assist with reading comprehension and and basic English skills. This includes vocabulary, sentence formation and writing skills.

Public Speaking

I have taken several classes on public speaking and never received anything less than an A-. I have also been on the debate team for several years. In addition to the debate team, I have participated in several mock trails.

Outside of my coursework, I have been in several leadership positions throughout my college career, including serving as the founder of one organization and the Vice President of two others. Through these leadership positions, I was giving speeches on a fairly regular basis to diverse audiences.

Creatively, I am also a spoken word poet, who had performed in front of many audiences. My public speaking ranges from the academic, to business, to creative. Overall, the premise is the same. Know your audience, know your material, be concise, be aware, be confident.
