Hi! My name is Cadesha, owner of Cross Calculations L.L.C.
I currently serve as a Human Resource Officer in the Texas Army National Guard and I am a mother of two amazing children. I have a B.S. in Mathematics from Dallas Baptist University and I’m an experienced tutor with over 10 years of experience.
Tutoring became an important aspect in my life as I have experienced the struggles my own children have endured in school, having learning disabilities and needing more than just ONE way of learning and more one-on-one time with an educator. Each child is an unique individual and at Cross Calculations L.L.C. we’re here to help you identify those struggles and find creative ways for them to learn and understand new concepts and materials, despite challenges.
