About Tamesha

I am a current educator who has taught for over 20 years. I am passionate about seeing students learn and get past struggles that may occur during their academic studies. I am certified in Special Education, Language Arts/Reading and ESL which is an asset in tutoring students elementary, middle school and high school English. Since reading is the basis of most subject areas, I tutor students in subjects such as biology and history as well. Therefore my approach to tutorials is to first find out what you need as a student. After I find out the information necessary to start an effective tutorial session, I provide resources such as study skills and materials to assist anyone in being successful in the subject at hand.

Because I started off struggling in the area of reading myself, I understand what it feels like when I see others struggle. Therefore I am patient while dealing with students during tutorial sessions. I have tutored students one on one as well as in small groups. I usually chart progress in order to give the best service possible. It is vital to get feedback from the student on how the sessions are working in order to determine whether you as a student will need more or less sessions as necessary. In regard to STAAR testing and other state assessments, I have a 100% passing rates for students who have to retest. My preparations sessions are rigorous and focused on the content to ensure that I am giving the best service possible. Finally I am experienced in tutoring students from 5 through 21. The main goal is to provide the best service possible to you as a student to achieve optimal success.


I am an outstanding English tutor because I have over 20 years experience in the area of English instructing students from Kinder through college. I love helping others and look forward to helping you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I currently teach middle school English, but I have also taught college English as well. This is an expert area for me, so let me know.

Reading

I have a Masters degree in curriculum and instruction with a reading focus. This is something that I do daily. Teaching reading and improving reading is a passion for me.

SAT Reading

I am an expert in giving tips and strategies that work for testing. I specialize in standardized testing such as SAT and STAAR testing. Students who use the strategies I give improve their scores in large percentages.

Writing

I tutor students throughout the summer who need assistance on the state test for high school. I have also tutored college students and beyond. I have more than 10 years experience in the area of tutoring writing.

Dr. Tamesha did an outstanding job

Dr. Tamesha did an outstanding job with my daughter. She failed the STAAR test in April 2016 and I found Dr. Tamesha on Wyzant and the rest is history. My daughter passed the STAAR test in July and her score improved 424 points. Our tutoring sessions always started on time and my daughter always felt like she was improving each time. This was the best choice for a STAAR tutor. Thanks for you
