Hello future students, my name is Charissa! I have a degree in accounting and business management. Also, I have a paralegal certification. My tutoring experience is broad. I have been tutoring for several years. I have tutored all ages, levels, and special needs. I have been tutoring an autistic young girl in math for the past seven years. Also, I have tutored high school students in all levels of algebra. I like to incorporate the one-to-one approach in my tutoring sessions. This allows me to focus on trying several different teaching techniques in order to determine the most effective way to help the student understand the topic at hand.
I am very flexible and versatile. I have the ability to adjust to each student's learning style. I am patient, respectful, and empathetic with each of my students. I enjoy using my experience, knowledge, and talent to help others learn. I am very hands-on. I incoporate visuals and powerpoints to help with the explanations of my lessons. I look forward to helping students gain confidence and excel in the subjects with which they are having problems.
Charissa is great! She was very patient with my 11 year old daughter who has autism. She was struggling with math. Charissa was able to develop a method to help her take in the information and understand. We will continue working with her on an on-going basis. She's the best!
I like to get some basic information to establish their learning style. I need to know what subject they need help with. Also, I need to know what they already have learned and understand. Then I can start preparing my lessons to assist
