About Lakeisha

My extensive background in science started in August, GA at A. R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet High School. I graduated in the health science track and making pass plus on each subject of the Georgia High School Graduation Test. I matriculated through undergraduate studies at Claflin University in Orangeburg, SC with two full scholarships. I entered with an Honors College scholarship and while attending earned the only scholarship that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD offers. I was selected in the top 5% of applicants to receive the NIH Undergraduate Scholarship. After graduating from Claflin University with a BS in biochemistry (GPA 3.70), I participated in 2 years of biomedical research at the NIH which resulted in 4 scientific publications. I am currently a second year medical student at Meharry Medical College, and I am continuing my research career here focusing on health disparities in the Meharry Center for AIDS Health Disparities Research, funded by the NIH.

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.

Very Effective Tutor!

I was in need of a tutor for the math portion of the GMAT test. Math is my worst subject and she laid it out very clearly for me to understand. She also suggested additional practice problems I could do to refresh on previous math I had taken. With her help I raised my GMAT score over 100 points! She was readily available and willing to help.
