About Keysha

For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for helping people. Tutoring and teaching affords me that opportunity. I have taught on many levels - from Sunday School to College - and found that the common element among students is a need for creative approaches to learning. Every student is an individual that may need to use techniques beyond the standard course outline.

I understand that when I value their input and knowledge people become active participants in the education process. I take a few minutes to learn more about the individual's concerns and interests. That information is used to tailor my approach to helping them. This creates a more productive outcome.

AWESOME!!!

I needed assistance with an outline for a new job. We met at a local library. She was on-time, and worked diligently with me to learn the work, create an outline, stayed w/me until it was done. Best of Keysha B., she understood the urgency I had, and went straight to work with me. She is professional. Is an outstanding tutor.
