About Temisha

Hello, my name is Temisha. I have been a provider of supplemental instruction (tutoring) since 1991. My post-secondary education is in Human Services, Psychology, and Education. My undergraduate work was done at Saint Louis University and my Graduate work at Southern Illinois University. I am a educator, provisionally certified to teach mathematics in Texas.

I tutor students between the ages of 3 and adult. My specialty subject is Mathematics. I tutor students below grade-level, on grade-level, and as enrichment. My instruction is very systematic. I teach each concept step-by-step and help the student relate the concept to things that they may experience in everyday life, school, or work. I will teach and reteach, when necessary, to ensure mastery.

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.

ACT Math

ACT Preparation: Math
This service is designed to build/reinforce key arithmetic - trigonometric concepts. It also incorporates test taking strategies to build the confidence needed to increase speed and accuracy.

Algebra 1

This course is the foundation for high school mathematics courses. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. Topics include simplifying expressions, evaluating and solving equations and inequalities, and graphing linear and quadratic functions and relations. Real world applications are presented within the course content and a function's approach is emphasized.

Algebra 2

This course extends the topics first seen in Algebra I and provides advanced skills in algebraic operations. Additionally, linear and quadratic functions and relations, conic sections, exponential and logarithmic functions, graphing, and sequences and series will be explored.

Designed for the main stream and honor/AP student.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a tutor and mother of three home schooled children. As a home schooling parent, I created the lesson for all of my children during their elementary years. This included all of their core course. As a tutor, I provided kindergarten preparation for local home daycare facilities and after school tutoring for their school aged children.

GED

As a graduate student in the education department, my service as a GA was to teach GED classes. I taught each of the content areas to ensure that students were able to get the best score possible on the GED assessment. In the case where students were not ready for GED class, I provided tutoring in Pre-GED.

This service is designed to build/reinforce referring and reasoning skills to:

determine main ideas
locate and interpret significant details
understand sequences of events
make comparisons
comprehend cause-effect relationships
determine the meaning of
context-dependent words, phrases, and
statements
draw generalizations
analyze the author's or narrator's voice
and method

Geometry

This course develops a structured mathematical system employing both deductive and inductive reasoning. It includes plane, spatial, coordinate, and transformational geometry. Algebraic methods are used to solve problems involving geometric principles.

For regular and honors/AP.

Praxis

My teaching experience began in Missouri and continues in Texas. I have taken and passed the Praxis II Mathematics 069 and the TExES 115(passed the first time). I am very familiar with the type of questions asked and testing format. I used the same standardized test strategies, techniques and approaches to pass this test in the first attempt that I use with students.

Prealgebra

Instruction is designed to reinforce mathematical skills taught in the previous courses with additional advanced computation including an emphasis on Algebraic concepts. Students study fractions, decimals, percents, positive and negative integers and rational numbers. Student works toward becoming more proficient in using ratios, proportions and solving algebraic equations. Students will develop and expand problem solving skills (creatively and analytically) in order to solve word problems. Students continue to practice using math skills to solve word problems and to think creatively and analytically. Students can use manipulatives and calculators. Successful completion prepares students for success in Algebra 1.

Precalculus

This course extends and integrates concepts from algebra and geometry. It includes a study of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, inverse and second degree relations and their graphs. Other topics include complex numbers, polar coordinates, vectors, sequences and series.

TAKS

I have 22 years of tutoring experience in each of the subject assessed on the TAKS test. I also have many years of experience preparing students for a variety of standardized assessments. As an educator in the state of Texas, I am very familiar with the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills) that are assessed on the TAKS.

Trigonometry

Sessions are designed to build a strong foundation in basic trigonometry. These trigonometry topics are taught in high school. Students would have to be proficient in basic trigonometry in order to take AP trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus.

Basic trigonometry topics

Radians, arc, trig functions, trig ratios, trig identities, trig tables, trig equations, double angles, half angles, other trig formulas, sin/cos/tan and their inverses, graphing periodic functions and their translations.

Great tutor, very knowledgeable — I scheduled three tutoring sessions with Temisha in order to prepare for the math portion of the Texas elementary certification exam. Prior to tutoring, I had failed the exam twice. After studying harder and seeking help from Temisha, I finally passed! Thank you Temisha. :) ...
