About Tonda

I am a mother of 4 children ranging in the age from 29 through 13. I am also a grandmother of 2 with one on the way. I have always promoted education to my children and wanted to become an educator to do this for others. I see everyday as a teaching moment because education is all around us. My goal of education is to enrich the lives of my students while producing articulate, expressive thinkers and lifelong learners, who are socially responsible, resilient, and active citizens of the world. Education is about teaching students, not subjects. It is about engaging students in their learning, and maximizing the potential of each and every child. Education is about looking beyond the child’s intellect, and seeing the whole child. Education is about providing students with opportunities to be challenged and still succeed. I want to educate students so that can be prepared to venture out into the world and be well rounded citizens. Who can take their education and travel from one continent to another and carry what was taught with them. Basically I want them to be internationally minded.
I have taught for Shelby County Schools, formally Memphis City Schools for 13 years. I am an educator at heart and believe that education is important. Learning is a continuous process therefore sometimes we need additional help along the way, everyone doesn't learn the same. I have never tutored before in this type of setting but have done in at school with students I have taught.

I am outstanding because these are subjects I had to teach daily in the classroom. I have taught Kindergarten, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth grade and there was a certain time during the day that we had to strictly teach these subjects. I also attended have a certificate as a Reading Specialist from University of Memphis.

I taught students in elementary education for 13 years. I have taught all grades except for first.

I am very knowledgeable in different strategies in teaching. I make learning fun. I love to sing, interact, and make lessons come alive. I don't do things in a traditional way but love to make learning an adventure. Education is the key to open up all doors and it is very important.
