About Akil

I have been teaching for twenty years, of which the last fourteen years have been in Memphis. I have taught several General Education courses, but the majority of my time in Memphis has been spent teaching English courses, most of which included a writing component to them. I am a published writer who possesses excellent communication skills and has editorial experience. I also teach history on the college level, so I am able to assist students in more than one area. I am a creative thinker and I prefer the learning experience to be enjoyable for the students and the teacher. I have been tutoring since my youth, and what I enjoy most about it is the impact that it has on the person being tutored.

I taught high school English for three years, and I have taught preparatory English courses and English composition courses for several employers in the Memphis area. I also have taught public speaking, business communications, and portfolio development. I also proofread resumes, essays, and papers for people who require these services.

Most of my college education has been spent studying history, particularly, U.S. history. I currently teach history as an adjunct faculty member for Mid-South Community College and Southwest Tennessee Community College. As a general education instructor, I also have taught government and political science courses.

If you are struggling with reading, writing, or the English language in general, feel free to contact me to discuss my availability and preferences for tutoring. I am generally available to tutor from late afternoon to early evening.

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.

Social Studies

I have a B.A. in history, an M.A. in African American Studies, and I have three years of coursework in a Ph.D. program in history. Most social studies teachers cannot say the same thing. Social studies includes the study of groups of people at various times in history and how they interact in their respective societies. I think studying history has well-equipped me to tutor or teach social studies.
