About Alesha

Hello students and parents!

My name is Alesha, and I recently moved to the Fredericksburg, Virginia area. I have worked in the behavioral health and educational setting for nearly 10 years, and I have a passion for teaching and assisting students with reaching their full potential. I worked briefly as a center director of a large tutoring facility, and I know what it takes to be successful. I also have specialized experience in working with ADHD/ADD and special needs children and instilling social skills and utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy. Therefore, I do know how to work with those children that find it difficult to focus, concentrate. and pay attention. PARENTS: Please know that your child CAN learn and I am more than willing to help. I utilize humor, a charismatic attitude and a matter-of-fact tone to keep you and your child engaged! My charge is to the student learn, and that's what I intend to do!


I attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia (GO RAMS!). There, I earned a Bachelor's of Social Work degree and graduated with honors. I went on to work for the Community Service Board of Richmond Virginia where I worked with children with behavioral, cognitive and emotional disabilities in the public school setting. While working full-time, I acquired a Master's in Health Services Administration from Strayer University. I was able to graduate with honors, as I maintained a 3.83 GPA. As aforementioned, my family and I recently relocated to Fredericksburg, Virginia. I discovered a new passion for teaching and tutoring children who are eager and willing to learn.

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.

ADHD

I have a acquired a bachelor's degree in Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University and worked in the field of mental health and behavioral health for over 10 years. I have certificates in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. I also have extensive training in various therapeutic techniques, taught social skills, conducted group and individual psycho-educational sessions. I worked with a wide variety of ages in this profession with varying diagnoses to include Bipolar Disorder, Mood Disorder NOS, Depression, Generalized Anxiety, Psychosis and Schizophrenia. Therefore, I am more than qualified to work with children and adults that have the diagnoses of ADHD or ADD.

Elementary (K-6th)

For 7 years, I worked in the elementary school setting with children that are labeled as seriously emotionally disturbed and have disorders such as ADHD, ODD, Bipolar D/O and other diagnoses. During this time, I assisted with completing class work, homework, and projects while tutoring them in their subjects. I assisted with improving their focus and level of success on various subjects such as reading, comprehension and science.

Reading

I worked at Huntington Learning Center as Center Director. There, I was exposed to hundreds of pieces of curriculum designed to enhance reading skills, comprehension and study skills. Furthermore, I worked with children from the ages of 5 to 17 for 10 years in an educational environment and assisted them with completing assignments and increasing attentiveness in their classes.

Study Skills

I graduated with Honors from Virginia Commonwealth University with a 3.57 GPA while working part-time and/or completing practicums. I also completed my Master's degree program while working full-time. Therefore, I am aware of the skills it takes to study efficiently, the importance of following directions and paying attention to details.

I also understand that every child and/or person is different and so are their learning styles. There are visual learners and auditory learners while some are a combination of the two. While working at Huntington Learning Center, I was able to quickly identify the type of learner the client was and modify the lessons so they could better understand and gain information.
