About La Tekqua


Bio

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.

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

Career Development

In both undergrad and graduate school I was very active in volunteering to help with the career services departments. Additionally, I for two years while in law school (a total of four semesters), I served as a panelist and mentor for incoming law students at Arizona State University (“ASU”). In that role, I counseled students and determined what areas of the law piqued his/her interests and then I directed each individual to the appropriate classes he or she needed to take to achieve their goals. For individuals who do not know what they want to do with their lives as a career choice, I ask a series of questions designed to find out what each person likes and dislikes, how well he/she works with others, what type of learner the person is (visual, auditory or a combination of both), and so forth. From there, I lay out a chronological plan in 10-steps for what the individual needs to do in order to achieve their career goals. I have used this approach to successfully help undergraduate and graduate students in embarking on their careers. A career is something that makes you happy and you get paid to do it whereas a job is something you get paid to do, but like most people—they hate their jobs.
Criminal Justice,

Criminal Justice

During law school tenure, I played an integral role in some criminal law classes. I did everything from research, to document review, discovery requests, interviewing clients and more. I also performed criminal court watches providing detailed feedback to judges in cases from simple DUI and marijuana possession cases all the way up to murder cases.
Law,

Law

I have tutored 1L - 3L students in the following subject areas: criminal law, criminal procedure, real property, torts, contracts, constitutional law, business associations (agency and partnership), conflict of laws, evidence, family law, secured transactions, and trusts and estates (aka decedent's estates).
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I am qualified to tutor individuals in public speaking as I am proficient in this area. Previously I worked for a Fortune 500 company for nearly 5 years and while there I put on presentations in front of new hires, executives, and even the President of the company as well. In my legal career, I have utilized my public speaking skills to argue cases in front of judges and attorneys for moot court while also participating in debates which require you to be quick on your feet. I have also hosted events in the community and attended rallies and had to publicly speak without any prior notice. I proved to be successful at this and raising money while doing so. I believe that public speaking is an art form, but you must first know your audience. Public speaking requires confidence and the ability to take criticism. I have knowledge of when it is best to write down your speech and when it is best to do it off the cuff. I have worked with my moot court co-counsel on their oral arguments in preparation for our competitions. I believe that my experience speaking in front of different types of crowds of people (whether I knew them personally or not) makes an expert in this area.

I have 10+ years in writing, proofreading and editing. I have proofread and edited journal articles, essays, statements of purpose, applications, executive presentations and more.

College Counseling,

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!

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.

That AH HA Moment... LaTekqua M. Vision and advice.

I was at my oral arguments today. LaTekqua M. had prepped me, with drills on questions that she felt could be asked. I felt ready and prepared, but I hit my stride when the questions they asked were in the drills we prepared. Her vision and knowledge caused me to have a winning performance. She is killer smart! I am keeping her as an essential tool for law school.
