About LaTekqua

I am originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. I attended undergrad at Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers) and upon graduation, I began working as a tutor. During my tenure, I tutored at-risk youth in preparation for passing the LEAP Test (a test required in Louisiana to advance to the next grade level). My students ranged from third grade to seventh grade.

In 2012, I started law school and graduated from the Arizona State University- Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. While there, I engaged in various organizations, became a student ambassador, and also became a member of the Arizona Black Leadership Council. During my time in law school, I helped incoming 1L students with their first year classes by providing outlines, creating study group sessions, and obtaining resources to help each study successfully complete their first semester. My efforts throughout my law school career earned me the Dean's Award upon graduation.

I believe that by knowing what your end game is, you can take the necessary steps to reach that destination by remaining committed. Give a man a fish and he will eat for one day. Teach a man to fish and he can eat for the rest of his life.

I have competed in several moot court competitions which requires you to stand in front of a group of attorneys and judges and explain why the court should rule in your favor. I was also the editor in chief of a law journal and the president of a student organization. In both of those roles, I have spoken before large crowds some of which were captured and replayed on the local Phoenix news. When I engage in public speaking, it's like someone else is talking. You have to channel your inner person who is already everything you want to be.

I graduated from Arizona State University - Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law on May 13, 2015. I began studying for the bar exam (the Uniform Bar Exam to be exact) on May 19, 2015. I sat for the July 2015 bar exam in Phoenix, AZ. I received my bar exam results October 9, 2015 at 4:34 PM and I passed.

I have experience managing projects, tight deadlines, and people. A successful project manager understands that he/she is nothing without the cooperation of the people who are doing the bulk of the work. Motivation, dedication, and strategic planning are essential. I served as project manager on the Gulf Region Health Outreach Program for the BP oil spill prior to attending law school.

I have taken several criminal justice classes including criminal law and criminal procedure. Additionally, I put together an event titled "To Protect and Serve: A Discussion of Police Brutality in America" in March 2014. The event featured a panel including a news media reporter/personality, a former judge, a current judge who is always a law professor, one of the filmmakers for Fruitvale Station, and a Phoenix Police Department lieutenant. Additionally, I worked on a criminal law case for 2.5 years. I serve as a social and criminal justice advocate and am currently working on a research paper with hopes of having it turn into a documentary.

If you have the tenacity, motivation and will to succeed, I can help you get where you are trying to be. A tutor is not just a teacher, but a motivator, a cheerleader, and mirror. Together, we can get where you want to go.

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.

Bar Exam

I graduated from Arizona State University - Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law on May 13, 2015. I began studying for the bar exam (the Uniform Bar Exam to be exact) on May 19, 2015. I sat for the July 2015 bar exam in Phoenix, AZ. I received my bar exam results October 9, 2015 at 4:34 PM and I passed. The UBE is designed to test knowledge and skills that every lawyer should be able to demonstrate prior to becoming licensed to practice law. Currently there are 25 states that accept the UBE and my score is high enough for me to apply for licensing admission in all of them if I so choose.

College Counseling

I have experience in applying for scholarships beginning in high school including both public and private scholarship offers. I consider all avenues when seeking money beyond what the federal government may offer. I have experience applying for merit-based scholarships, financial need scholarships, scholarships for minorities, essay scholarships, and much more. When I attended undergrad at LSU, I obtained scholarships before had to lower the cost of attendance--many of which were essay scholarships and a well-known one came from DuPont.

Additionally, I am well-versed in completing college applications and writing entrance essays that will set you apart from the other applicants. I applied to some law schools after I took the LSAT and wrote my entrance essay using my name and the meaning as the centerpiece. When I got ready to transfer to Arizona State University, I used a spinoff of this essay and my 1L experience to earn a spot at the university.

As a former student ambassador and someone who worked in the admissions office at both LSU and Arizona State, I know what it takes to be the crème de la crème. Lastly, but not least fee waivers are important especially if you are from a low socioeconomic background and I can help you with that as well!

Law

I have tutored 1L students in the following first year subjects--Torts, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, and Contracts. I did a small amount of civil procedure mainly involving jurisdictional questions.
