Aisha is a Certified Substitute Teacher with 8 years of classroom experience. She attended private school in Chicago and transferred to West Aurora school district in her sophomore year of high school. She has always had a passion for English grammar and literature but chose to pursue a career in psychology. She completed her Undergraduate Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Spanish from Western Illinois University. Also, she completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology from Grand Canyon University.
Aisha grew up reading about different places and learned about them by traveling around the country with her family which increased her passion for teaching and working with children. When she decided to pursue therapy as a career, the plan was for Aisha to work in school settings to get a feel for what school counseling would include. Life has a funny way of being everything other than what one plans! Instead, Aisha was continuously pulled into teaching roles that fostered in her a greater love for English Language Arts as well as math, science, and supporting children that may learn things a bit differently.
When not tutoring, Aisha works in mental health where she is able to support individuals with their emotional needs, some of which impede academic performance. She has supported the improvement of their educational skills due to helping them manage their emotional needs. Aisha believes that by building a strong relationship with her students she is better able to meet their needs and grow their learning. Aisha continues to develop strategies for working with children. She finds these experiences enjoyable and extremely rewarding.
Alongside having years of tutoring experience, Aisha also has an AQ (additional qualification) in intellectual and developmental disabilities. Aisha truly believes that engaging students using their curiosity and interests is crucial in helping them gain the confidence they require to succeed and reach a level of academic ability that meets their needs.
