About Francina

When asked the question "what makes a great tutor," I immediately begin to reflect on my childhood learning experience. The makings of a great tutor starts with honesty and being relatable. A great tutor teaches from the core of heart and aims to connect the gaps in his/her scholar's learning capabilities. A great tutor lends grace to their scholars and becomes the mirror reflection of hope that in life you can accomplish anything you set your mind to in spite of setbacks. Words like perseverance do not merely exist on vocabulary logs, but become words that great tutors teach scholars to live by. During the beginning stages in my matriculation in education, I can remember being hopelessly lost in the lesson and some of my favorite educators coming into my life, taking their time, and guiding me on where I made my mistakes. I started tutoring athletes in middle school during seventh grade. I continued this on until I graduated from college and worked as a full time Literacy Small Group Instructor for InnovateEDU at Brooklyn Lab Charter School. The most rewarding factor I discovered about tutoring was understanding how the capacity of the small role you played, as a tutor, in the overall process made a difference.

Good English tutors simply recite their knowledge and what they think you should know. I create the world for you to truly understand and retain your knowledge. I am vibrant and colorful with words and imagery, which will make you capture your attention.

"Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared." This poem written by Tupac Shakur, is the motivation I use to encourage my GED students and myself to live by perseverance instead of merely studying this vocabulary word.

I give the words life, and as a Theatre tutor that is extremely important. I use passion in teaching the action of the through line. What makes me an outstanding theatre tutor you ask? I say it's the vulnerability that I have as an artist that is open and willing to expose the truths of life in order to create outstanding art.

You need a vibrant tutor. You need a tutor that will push you to your limitations in order to move forward in your journey. You need a dedicated and driven educator that wants to see you win. You need me, the unreHERsed educator.

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.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor study skills because of my concise organization skills. I have taught study skills to both 6th and 7th grade students who struggle with retaining knowledge. I understand that teaching a scholar techniques that they can apply and aim to live is crucial to their study habits.

Theater

I graduated from Morgan State University with a BA in Theatre Arts. While at Morgan I graduated with the highest GPA in the Fine and Performing Arts Department. I have taught theatre arts for over four years. I recently was a Theatre Teacher for InnovateEDU at Brooklyn Lab.

Writing

I have worked with assisting students with literacy in preparation for common core testing and SAT testing preparation.

Miss. Francina was able to help my son be concise with his thoughts and to back up his thoughts with evidence from the text he is reading.
