About Chermaine


Bio

I have 11 years professional engineering experience having worked as a senior radar systems engineer. I have strong analytical skills. I worked as a Learning Specialist/Trainer as well. For math tutoring and even with my own children, I focus on developing critical thinking skills in their academics(versus imitation, memorization), which are foundational in learning math concepts and in learning any subject. I also have over 20 years of cross-cultural, global experience (Guyana, Kenya,...

I have 11 years professional engineering experience having worked as a senior radar systems engineer. I have strong analytical skills. I worked as a Learning Specialist/Trainer as well. For math tutoring and even with my own children, I focus on developing critical thinking skills in their academics(versus imitation, memorization), which are foundational in learning math concepts and in learning any subject. I also have over 20 years of cross-cultural, global experience (Guyana, Kenya, Australia, USA) with serving and working with children and youth in a variety of areas such as Sunday School teaching, bible studies, after school tutoring even while working as an engineer. For ESL, I like to use TPR (Total Physical Response) with other instructional techniques and tailor to the student's learning style, whether visual, auditory or kinesthetic/hands on. Overall in tutoring, I incorporate the instructional model of the 5 Es: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate. I enjoy seeing students have the "ah ha!" moments of discovery while learning, helping and encouraging students to reach their full potential as they grow in confidence. I desire students to flourish, thrive and soar!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Ms. Chermaine is very knowledgeable and patient. She is also so understanding. She works well with my daughter. My daughter has learned so much in the little time she has worked with Ms. Chermaine. I can only imagine what level she will be on when she finishes.
