About Lavette

I have been teaching for Shelby County Schools legacy Memphis City Schools for the last 15 years. I currently teach 10th grade English and have been at that same school for the last 10 years. I have previously taught middle school reading for several years, 9th grade English, and also taught 12 grade English as well. I am familiar with all the standards for English but can tutor any grade since I'm certified in English 7-12.
I have previous experience with tutoring for my school at Whitehaven High and also at Sheffield High where I also previously taught. I have been involved with Whitehaven's High Act summer program as well assisting students to improve their Act reading and Act English scores to successful levels for students. This have been a summer job for me for at least 10 years.
I am very patient when it come to tutoring students to make sure they gain the knowledge. I also have experience and success with special education students with all kinds of different levels. I utilize different Reading and English strategies to assist student where they are, but also improve their skills so they can be successful and improve not only their Reading their writing and grammar skills.

I can tutor student in any English, Reading, Writing, and ACT area. I had previous experience with all of these area that will great enhance my skills to help the students to be successful. Like I previously stated, I am very patient but demanding due to my ability to work with special education students to ensure their success. I not only have the knowledge, but also the patience to deal with any type of student whether they are grown or a minor child at any age.

I encourage the students to contact me if you are looking for a dedicated, patient, demanding, but skilled profession in the area of English, Writing, Grammar, Reading, and the ACT.

She has helped my son a lot. He has improved from C's to A's in a short time. He takes longer to learn things, but she is patient and takes her time with him. Good job!
