About Shameika


Bio

I am a former Montessori teacher of more than 10 years, and with that training I have become very attuned to a student's learning style and background knowledge. I am very easy-going, love to laugh but take learning very seriously. I have my Texas teaching certificate and I am a certified ESL teacher. I also love teaching ALL subjects to elementary students. Nothing makes me happier than to see others persevere, be confident and successful.

I am a former Montessori teacher of more than 10 years, and with that training I have become very attuned to a student's learning style and background knowledge. I am very easy-going, love to laugh but take learning very seriously. I have my Texas teaching certificate and I am a certified ESL teacher. I also love teaching ALL subjects to elementary students. Nothing makes me happier than to see others persevere, be confident and successful.

I am a mom of three high school students. Watching my children grow and have successes in their education has inspired me to want the same for other children. What I love about tutoring is seeing the beautiful smile on a child’s face when they overcome a challenge they thought they could not beat.

I taught 6 to 9 year olds for 8 years and I taught 9 to 12 year olds for 3 years, through Montessori education. I also taught pre-K for 1 year, 3rd grade for 1 year and 5th grade for 2 years in a traditional educational setting. When it came to standardized testing, my students always performed well.

I taught K - 5th grade science in a private school setting for 3 years. I also taught 5th grade science in public school for 1 year. My students LOVED coming to my class and getting nothing but hands on experience and FUN!

In my teaching experience writing and grammar was often over looked. I engage students with entertaining grammar and writing exercises that will prepare them for the writing and grammar that is expected in middle school.

Phonics is the foundation to everything reading and writing. There are lots and lots of activities to engage students on phonics that will prepare them for everything that follows.

I have so much knowledge to share with you. I want kids to love learning in a way that is interesting to them. Students love my classes because I K.I.S.S. (Keep It Super Simple) the stress away!!
