About Keisha

Hello! I am looking forward to embarking on this learning adventure with you. I consider myself a professional student because I love learning so much. However, I have had many experiences (including practicing as an attorney) and would be happy to talk to students about college and career choices if that would be helpful. Overall, I really love helping students with their reading comprehension and writing. These have always been passions for me and I would love to help students become better in these areas. For example, I scored very high in these areas on my SATs, LSATs and GREs. I would be happy to serve as a sounding board for students who struggle in these areas and work on ways to help improve these skills, catered to each student's specific needs and strengths. In addition, I am also a creative writer and would love to help if anyone wanted tips or editing of non-academic work as well.

My academic experience is varied and I believe helps me to understand any stage in the process that students may be facing when it comes to their work. I graduated from an Ivy League college in 2010, then graduated from law school in 2013, and am currently in a PhD program which I will graduate in 2020. My teaching experience includes teaching an 11th grade English summer school course (which involved helping students write essays based on novels, in addition to giving them SAT prep and overall college counseling) while I was an undergraduate, serving as the teaching assistant for a legal writing course while I was in law school (which included helping students conduct legal research and write legal briefs and memoranda), and teaching a freshman psychology research and writing lab as a doctoral student. Writing is my strong point (and a very important skill for everyone who is in college, or hoping to go to college, to master!), but I also minored in East Asian Studies and African American Studies as an undergraduate, concentrated in Criminal and Family Law as a law student, and I am currently in a psychology doctoral program (so I have exposure to graduate level statistics). Thus my ability to assist you can include many different subject areas. Just ask me!

I have always been very strong in English, including grammar, writing, and reading comprehension. My SAT scores, overall, were of the type to have afforded me acceptance in to Princeton University. Similarly, my performance on the LSATs, a test that focuses on logic, comprehension, and writing, granted me acceptance into a number of law schools. All of my teaching experiences have involved a majority of work in the area of writing and reading comprehension, so I am confident in my abilities in this area. I have been asked a number of times to serve as a proofreader or editor for writing. Further, I am a published author, having written a legal note in law school that was accepted for publication in a legal journal. More recently, I have experience with the GRE in which I score a 6/6 on both Essays. I am confident in my ability to be an effective tutor in the area of English and Writing.

I love reading and writing and hope to make it fun for you as well! If you are struggling in these areas, please reach out to me and we can work together to get you to where you need to be.

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.

English

As reflected by my high performance on the SAT, LSAT, and GRE I am confident in my ability to help students who struggle in the areas of reading comprehension, logic, grammar, proofreading, and effective and efficient college-level writing. I have taught reading and writing at both the high school and graduate level and thus am able to vary my teaching to accommodate students at all levels. English is a subject that is very different from one like Math or Science; it is important that student's difficulties are addressed on an individual level and my tutoring style aims to cater my teaching to the particular student.

Proofreading

A part of being a skilled writer is being skilled in proofreading. That is, you cannot be effective if your words are not clear. As writing and reading comprehension are my strong points, I am confident in my ability to help students become more effective writers.

SAT Reading

The SAT reading test may seem daunting, but mastery of it relies on practice and familiarity with the test. In addition, students must develop a large and somewhat advanced vocabulary. Prepping for the SAT is a great opportunity for students to expand their knowledge base and become more adept in areas they might not have had prior exposure to. My tutoring style aims to make students more comfortable with these unfamiliar skills and concepts and, most importantly, get them to the level that using these skills become second-nature.
