##### About Lester

I have a degree in criminology from the University of South Florida. I am from Miami, Florida and I was a part of Teach For America South Louisiana in 2013. During my time with Teach For America, I had taught 4th grade Math and Science for two years in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. I have provided interventions for scholars there in math computation fluency, behavior, and I also tutored scholars to prepare for State Testing. While I was there, I was able to witness, share, and celebrate scholar's growth with the parents of the community.

My third year of teaching, 2015-2016 school year, I taught Kindergarten at a Charter School in Baton Rouge. I taught phonics, writing, and math. My partner teacher and I have taught rigorous instruction, which has reflected in over 90 % of our scholars exceeding their targeted proficiency goal in the national MAP test. This test compares data from a school wide level and compares it at the district level. Lastly, I am moving to Memphis, Tn on June 1, 2016.

What makes me an outstanding Common Core tutor is not only teaching math for 2 years but my students also took Common Core aligned assessments. Both years teaching math, more than 75% of my students met their targeted goal. My 2nd year teaching, I had 20% of students above proficiency and 55% at proficiency.
