Qualifications & Experience

I have been teaching in a formal school setting for over 11 years. I have been a private tutor for 18 years. I have successfully taught and tutored several hundreds of students. I have tutoring experience for all of the Praxis Exams. I also have tutoring experience for the GRE. On an undergraduate level, I have successfully prepared students for the ACT and SAT.

Teaching Style
I give each student an initial assessment. This will allow me to gauge your strengths and weaknesses in a particular subject. It will also allow me to identify your learning style. There are three different learning styles. Auditory, Visual, and Kinesthetic. Students who are auditory learners will have lessons more centered around listening techniques. Visual learners will be provided with anchor charts, graphs, and other visual aids. Kinesthetic learners will have hands on type of learning in which movement is an integral part of the lessons. We will discuss your results and plan a tutoring package to meet your specific needs.
I can I travel and offer tutoring in the comfort of your own home. I can also provide online tutoring. You may select private sessions (recommended) or group sessions.

All of my former students have shown growth from our tutoring experience. Not only will you learn specific area of study, but you will be provided with tests taking strategies that will guarantee positive results.

Shayla Branch is an excellent tutor! I used to hate math and I was never good at it until Ms. Branch started tutoring me. She explained math to me in a way that was easy for me to understand. She helped me improve my score on the ACT exam from a 17 to a 24. I was able to get a partial scholarship and I will be starting college this fall. She is the best tutor ever!
