School: Independent Tutor
I provide one-on-one mathematics and science tutoring. I specialize in elementary to high school math and science - all subjects. SAT, ACT, GED, and ASVAB exam preps are also available.
My Approach to Tutoring:
Build trust in me and confidence in yourself. You are unique. We will discover your strengths and build from there. Tutoring is a private matter. I want to be your "secret weapon" to help you slay those math and science demons. I want you to believe in yourself. Education is a life-long journey. I want you to enjoy the journey.
I am certified to tutor elementary K-6, study skills, elementary and middle school science, physical science, elementary math, pre-algebra, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus.
I am a retired civil engineer. My B.S. is from Purdue University. I have a M.B.A. from Golden Gate University in San Francisco, CA. In addition to several licenses and certifications in engineering, I hold a lifetime California Community College Instructor credential in six subject areas.
I am a certified life coach. Why? A good teacher should be a coach also. My hobbies are ham radio and astronomy. I'm married with two daughters, both graduates of Michigan State University.
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.
