Hello, my name is Temisha. I have been a provider of supplemental instruction (tutoring) since 1991. My post-secondary education is in Human Services, Psychology, and Education. My undergraduate work was done at Saint Louis University and my Graduate work at Southern Illinois University.

I tutor students between the ages of 3 and adult. My specialty subject is Mathematics. I tutor students below grade-level, on grade-level, and as enrichment. My instruction is very systematic. I teach each concept step-by-step and help the student relate the concept to things that they may experience in everyday life, school, or work. I will teach and reteach, when necessary, to ensure mastery.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

This course is the foundation for high school mathematics courses. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. Topics include simplifying expressions, evaluating and solving equations and inequalities, and graphing linear and quadratic functions and relations. Real world applications are presented within the course content and a function's approach is emphasized.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

This course extends the topics first seen in Algebra I and provides advanced skills in algebraic operations. Additionally, linear and quadratic functions and relations, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, graphing, and sequences and series will be explored. Designed for the main stream and honor/AP student.
Geometry,

Geometry

This course develops a structured mathematical system employing both deductive and inductive reasoning. It includes plane, spatial, coordinate, and transformational geometry. Algebraic methods are used to solve problems involving geometric principles. For regular and honors/AP.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Instruction is designed to reinforce mathematical skills taught in the previous courses with additional advanced computation including an emphasis on Algebraic concepts. Students study fractions, decimals, percents, positive and negative integers and rational numbers. Student works toward becoming more proficient in using ratios, proportions and solving algebraic equations. Students will develop and expand problem solving skills (creatively and analytically) in order to solve word problems. Students continue to practice using math skills to solve word problems and to think creatively and analytically. Students can use manipulatives and calculators. Successful completion prepares students for success in Algebra 1.
Precalculus

Precalculus

This course extends and integrates concepts from algebra and geometry. It includes a study of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, inverse and second degree relations and their graphs. Other topics include complex numbers, polar coordinates, vectors, sequences and series.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

Sessions are designed to build a strong foundation in basic trigonometry. These trigonometry topics are taught in high school. Students would have to be proficient in basic trigonometry in order to take AP trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. Basic trigonometry topics Radians, arc, trig functions, trig ratios, trig identities, trig tables, trig equations, double angles, half angles, other trig formulas, sin/cos/tan and their inverses, graphing periodic functions and their translations.

Great tutor

Very helpful. My son loves working with her. After today's session he told me "we did cool stuff today" !! He's made that comment about anything math related before. I highly recommend Temisha

LaQuita, 5 lessons with Temisha
Tutor responded:

Thank you! To consider math tutoring to be cool is the highest complement. See you all next week.

Great ASVAB Tutor

Great job, very patient and knowledgeable. Showed me very useful shortcuts. Worth my time and money. Was very flexible with our schedule and that was greatly appreciated. Thank you Temisha.

Cindy, 3 lessons with Temisha

Thank you very much. I am very happy to know that he received a 100%

Gifted!

This was our first session and my daughter have mastered an entire math unit. She was about to assess her skills and determine her method of learning.

Ty, 21 lessons with Temisha

Patience is key...

Temisha is very knowledgeable and extremely patient with my nephew as he struggles to master Algebra. After 2 sessions he's gained confidence in his ability and so have I.

Lindy, 3 lessons with Temisha
Tutor responded:

Thank you very much! I welcome the opportunity to continue to work with him to continue to build throughout his high school career.

Great tutor!

Temisha is actually helping my nephew prepare to take the ASVAB for the Navy. He has improved a tremendous amount with her help, versus trying to study on his own!!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I enjoy working with him too.

Great tutor, very knowledgeable

I scheduled three tutoring sessions with Temisha in order to prepare for the math portion of the Texas elementary certification exam. Prior to tutoring, I had failed the exam twice. After studying harder and seeking help from Temisha, I finally passed! Thank you Temisha. :)

Tahira, 3 lessons with Temisha
Tutor responded:

Thank you Tahira. I'm so excited for you! You are a very hard worker. Glad to be able to give you that little boost. Best wishes as you go forward as a teacher in TX.

Professional and Sociable

Mrs. Baker tutored my son in chemistry. She was very organized and sociable. She was able to ease my sons fears and make the tutoring session very productive. I am soo appreciative.
