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. Hello, my name is Temisha. I have been a provider of supplemental instruction (tutoring) since 1991.

Temisha is a great tutor! Shes currently helping me get through my college algebra class. Within the first week of starting the class, I reached out to her because I was not catching on and my grades were suffering. Two weeks later and I am passing! Even with the textbook and online program, there is a lot that I don't grasp, and she has a way of really breaking it down so that it's simpler for me. I highly recommend her!
Temisha is amazing. My daughter has always been very good in math, however at the beginning of this 2015/16 school year I realized something wasn't right and began looking for a tutor. Temisha is a heaven sent, my 12 year old daughter no longer is stressed not not comprehending the information provided by the teacher (even though help is solicited during class). My daughter reviews the lessons from the day/week and she is usually head and shoulders prepared for the next lesson!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! :-) I appreciate parents and students that are as dedicated and hardworking you and yours. I look forward to her finishing the year strong and reports of academic success for many years to come.
Temisha is heaven sent! My son can be very difficult during math lessons. He can be lazy, and find every excuse not to work out his math problems. Temisha is extremely patient and uses her knowledge and words to move my son past his frustration period and refocus on completing his homework on his own. We have only seen Temisha 4 times but she has helped my son a great deal already. She speaks very positive towards him which makes him feel confident in what he is doing. Before Temisha, he would shut down but i have noticed the more she works with him, the more I see an "I Can Do It" attitude in him. She's the best out there! We're so happy with her.
Thank you so much. Your son is very smart. Together we can bring out the best in him.
Ms. Temisha has been tutoring my nine year old daughter for about nine weeks now. We have watched her math confidence grow tremendously! She is learning new tips and tricks and is actually excited about learning, where she previously hated math. I look forward to watching her continued growth with Ms. Temisha who is friendly, relateable and a great teacher. I would recommend Ms. Temisha.
Thank you so much for today's review/recommendation. It is always a pleasure for me to see a student's love for learning grow with each new session. Sometimes students seek a quick fix and thereby cheating themselves out of the reward that awaits. Thank you for having the wisdom needed to allow her to make gains in academics and in her confidence.
She is a very knowledgeable on math and science. She can show you short cut on how to work mathematical problems. Overall she will get you were you need to be far as subject matters. Thanks Temisha for being so patience with me.
I haven't been in a math class in a long time since the 2nd Bush was in office lol and Thanks to Temisha I was doing Algebra 1 in 15 minutes. She really knows her stuff and for anyone worried about price all I can say is you get what you pay for and believe me your getting the VERY BEST. I have nothing but positive things to say. She really breaks down math step by step and is able to find a away to help you relate to the material. I wish she was my teacher. Thank You Temisha for getting me reacquainted with mathematics again!
Thank you. Glad to help.
Temisha has done a great job with our son. He has shown signs of improvement and we are excited about his progress.
Temisha has been working with my 12 year old daughter for the last few weeks. After each session in pre-algebra my daughter was always smiling saying "I think I understand it now". Temisha took the time to go over the rules and break down the required steps to get the correct answer. She is very patient and friendly. My daughter felt comfortable working with her online. We look forward to working with her more in the near future.
Thank you Denise. It's always a pleasure.
She was very helpful and did a great job tutoring my child. My daughter struggles with math but she was very patient with my daughter and worked each step with her.
Thank you Odessa. Glad to be able to assist. :-)
Temisha is absolutely amazing. She works with my work schedule and is always reachable by phone. She covers every topic that I need to cover and she is a wonderful tutor by far!!!!
Thank you for your kind words. "Your success is my priority"
This is the second year Temisha has tutored my grandson. The tutoring session always goes very well. I am pleased with all of the personalized information given to my grandson to help his specific needs. She goes step by step through the homework and makes every problem seem easy.
Amazing tutor! She Helped a lot :)
Thank you. It is always a pleasure to work with your grandson. I appreciate all of the support you provide.
She taught me how to break down math problems. And she was good at it I really learned something from her. She helped gain the knowledge that I can do the hard math. Good teacher.
Thank you :-)
Temisha was great. She helped me understand a subject that I was completely lost in. She was very patient and knowledgeable .
Thank you!! :-)
Temisha B has demonstrated academic proficiency in Statistics. Her help in the last three weeks has helped me to bring up my grades and do better than I have been in the class. I recommend her to be one who is able and capable to assist graduate students in quantitative research. The task is difficult when you have to understand the difficult procedures in statistical learning. Her tutoring has helped me and she is a tremendous teacher and person.
Temisha is great! She is really helping my son work through problems and understand what he's doing. She is patient, knows her subject matter, and wastes no time in the lesson. They work! Very pleased!
Temisha is very thorough and organized in evaluating students and identifying what their needs are. I just finished my first lesson and was very impressed with her teaching and approach to Trigonometry. I have had problems with math in the past and very much needed tutoring to prepare for a Trig class at Texas Tech in the fall. I was stressed about starting any type of review. I am easily frustrated with math. Temisha put things in perspective and her positive attitude and knowledge of the subject gave me the confidence I needed to start learning and I enjoyed the session very much and look forward to working with her this summer. She takes the time required for me to understand each topic and concept. Excellent teacher. She is very prompt with returning emails and phone calls.
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.
