About LaKena

I am a certified teacher with 12+ years of teaching and administrative experience. I have taught at the elementary and middle school level. Reading is my passion and I enjoy teaching and working with students as they build confidence to know that they can learn! ??I hold a Master's degree in Education from Grand Canyon University and one in Theological Studies from Liberty University. I received my Bachelor's degree from Lakeland College. ??I enjoy working with children and helping them to develop strategies that will allow them to be more successful.

I have taken several courses as it relates to teaching math to the elementay aged student. I understand that all children do not "see" math the same way and I can help determine the right method for your child as they learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and more. With games, manipulatives, songs and more your child will gain confidence in math.

I have used methods such as phonics, whole language, A-Beka, Sing-Spell-Read and Write, and more.

As the former elementary school teacher and principal, I have experience in teaching and tutoring all elementary subjects, as well as, note taking and study skills. I also hold a certification in teaching diverse learners, to include children with disabilities or learning differences.

For my students who need help with "sounding it out," I have a set of fun and engaging tools to use that make phonics into a game. Utilizing movement, songs, pictures, flash cards, and other tools, we can play at phonics and make hours seem like minutes, you'll be having so much fun!

I look forward to speaking with you and developing a plan to catapult your child on the path of success and confidence.
