About Keisha

Seeking a tutor? My name is Keisha and I'm a class of '13 Schreiner University graduate with a B.A. in Psychology and History. I'm an editor, researcher, writer, and coach at an academic publishing company that creates tests and study materials for University Interscholastic League, National Spelling Bee, and National History Bee contestants.

Prior to my time in publishing, I spent three years tutoring at Schreiner University's Writing Center and Teaching and Learning Center. There, I received a solid training in non-directive tutoring and conducted and presented research on tutoring methodology at the South Central Writing Center Association's annual conference for three years in a row.

Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work with a broad spectrum of ages and students from widely varying backgrounds. Most importantly, I've been trained not only to help you complete your task, but to work to build confident and capable tutees.

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.

American History

In 2013, I graduated from Schreiner University with a B.A. in History. While attending Schreiner, I tutored American History at the university's Teaching and Learning Center. I currently work at an academic publishing company where I both write and edit UIL materials that address this coursework on a daily basis.

Proofreading

I'm currently employed as an editor at an academic publishing company that works with UIL and National Spelling Bee materials. Prior to that, I spent three years tutoring at Schreiner University's Writing Center and Teaching and Learning Center. There, I was trained to work with writing from all collegiate disciplines and formats. Proofreading, proofreading, and more proofreading!

Social Studies

During my college career, I was employed at my university's Teaching and Learning Center, where I tutored a variety of social studies courses. In 2013, I graduated with my bachelors in both History and Psychology. Since then, I've worked as a researcher and editor at a publishing company that specializes in competitive academic products. During my time there, I've written many social studies products, including UIL social studies tests and study materials. I am also a co-author of a book called 'The History Essentials,' a timeline-style study guide of U.S. and world history written in partnership with the National History Bee.

Writing

From March 2011 until my graduation in December of 2013, I worked as a tutor for Schreiner University's Writing Center. While employed there, I not only worked with students of all ages and disciplines, I also conducted research on several aspects of writing tutoring and presented my findings at the annual SCWCA conference and my university's own Academic Achievement Showcase. I love to write, I love to tutor, and I love working with all parts of the creative process.
