My 15+ years in the educational arena--and ongoing professional development--have taught me the importance of helping students shift from lower- to higher-order thinking, which is really only coaching students to go from knowing the "what" of things to putting all those "whats" together to understand the "hows" and "whys". There's no magic. I do what I do, and the rest only works if students do their parts.

From the moment I read her profile, I knew Kenisha would be an excellent fit for our son who is in an International Baccalaureate program but has trouble with standardize testing. For years, we?ve struggled with trying to understand ?why?. After about 3 sessions, Kenisha figured it out and tailored a program to fit his needs. He takes the SAT again in 3 days. His scored increased by a 100 points on the practice test. He is much more confident about the test than he was 3 months ago. Thank you!!!!!!?

I appreciate Kenisha?s method of tutoring. She allowed me to write in my own voice and encouraged me not to worry about edits until the end. Her method helped me product an incredible paper! Thank you Kenisha!

About Kenisha: Kenisha is a passionate and insightful tutor who provides the learner with a safe and comfortable learning environment. She encourages the learner to think deeply which enables them to foster their thinking skills and synthesize new information with concepts the learner may not realize they already know. To the point: Yes, I was able to pass my exam, but I definitely would not have been able to do it on my own. Lessons with Kenisha: I've taken and failed the CSET: English Subtest II twice. After failing a second time, I reached out to Kenisha. We were able to get started immediately, and every single session up until my test date had been genuinely reflective and fulfilling. I left every session knowing I'd learned something new, and that I'd added to my list of skills and knowledge I needed in order to pass my exam. There's a reason for every question she asks you, and every answer you come up with connects to one or more concepts you have covered, are currently covering, or will cover in the future. And when you feel you just can't get the answer to a question, she'll give you the gentle push you need until you get there--or if you get it wrong, she's not afraid to point out where you went wrong. She'll even provide you with ways of remembering that seem to not stick. Her way of teaching is necessary for solidifying the groundwork of what you need to know and why you need to know it! Kenisha makes sure to teach in a way that fits your learning style. She genuinely cares that she's giving you assignments that reflect what you're learning and that it's sticking to your brain. If my professors were anything like Kenisha, I would've felt someone genuinely wanted the best for me and my educational career. Before lessons with Kenisha: After my first fail of the exam, I used an online site where I had to learn on my own by watching videos and completing every lesson by passing a five-question quiz. Overall, it wasn't enough because it didn't enforce my understanding of concepts or terms the videos covered. In addition, there was no immediate feedback, which is necessary when reviewing tons of new information. If you or your child are anything like me--need more self-discipline, and shy and need that extra encouragement to vocalize the critical thinking that's happening in your noggin--Kenisha will provide you with all the support you need to nurture and fulfill your educational needs. I can only hope that you take it one step further in your educational career by booking that first appointment with Kenisha because she's an absolute delight.

Kenisha taught me the foundational principles of math such as finding the percent, finding the sales tax, and understanding place values. Additionally, Kenisha adds real world problem solving skills into math equations. So, that students are able to solve the problem in real life time. I am very appreciative of Kenisha because she works with her students and understanding their learning styles. In addition, she pushes her students and encourages them to embrace any challenge.

I already booked my 3rd class and I am so happy to continue with her! Thanks for putting your heart when it comes to teach! You are awesome!!!

We completed the diagnostic exam today. Kenisha was very detailed in the process of preparation, and put my daughter at ease by getting to know her on a personal level. We are looking forward to her first lesson.
- Tsitsi S. from Potomac, MD
Kenisha is great! She was friendly and was on time! She had me take a diagnostic test to evaluate my areas of strength and weakness in order to guide my tutoring sessions. She asked me questions to get to know me and how to better support me in the future. I look forward to working with her.
- Alysa P. from Stockton, CA
Kenisha was through in her intake and answered all of my questions. She addressed my concerns as well. She listened intently! I am glad we found her. My daughter was a little intimidated initially, but by the end of the call, she warmed up and was looking forward to learning from Kenisha.
- Carletta M. from Gilbert, AZ
Kenisha is a wonderful tutor. She is great at identifying the weakness in my son, and remedies it with focused instruction. I am happy to have her as a learning resource for my son.
- Fatimah H. from Nashville, TN
I?ve only had one session with Kenisha so far, but I already feel like she?s helping me move in the right direction! I?m excited to continue sessions with her and I think that the sessions will continue to be great!
- Julia M. from Oakland, CA
She's taught me to relax and be confident in myself. She's shown me that I'm more knowledgeable than what I thought I was. She has an amazing personality and doesn't mind taking her time with me, for the things that I overthink about.
- LaShawnae S. from Adelanto, CA
Kenisha was wonderful today. She made a study guide with the topics that are difficult for me. During the session I realized that there is still so much to learn and be prepared.

Looking for a tutor, book Kenisha. She makes you feel right at home, her warm presence makes you feel comfortable. At the end of our first meeting, she took the time to sit with me and see what I was into, how I learned best, my hobbies, weakness, strengths, etc.. I knew right away I made the right choice. During today's tutoring session, which was our second meeting, we focused on things that were going to help me brainstorm before I started writing my essays. We also spend some time on ratios and word problems. This was our second meeting and I could tell Kenisha took the time to figure out what best learning styles worked for me. I'm a visual learner, she took the time to write images on the white board that helped me collect my thoughts. Something I liked about her style was seeing an outline of our full 2 hours together; as I walked in the room the agenda was up on the wall. I've been looking to get tutored for awhile now, and believe I came to the right place. I would highly recommend booking a session with Kenisha!

Kenisha is a great teacher. She learns about what I need and the things I like, then she makes my lessons. Working with Kenisha has made my English better. When I started working with her, I did not understand much English. I am much better now because of her.
