ScrabblePlayer code challenge - getTileCount method

Below is my code for the getTileCount method that uses a for loop to traverse the characters of the tiles in hand and increment the counter if it matches. There error I'm getting reads, "The hand was 'sreclhak' and 'e' was checked. Expected 1 but got 8." Any guidance is appreciated:

public int getTileCount(char letter) { int count = 0; for (char tileInHand: mHand.toCharArray()) { if (mHand.indexOf(letter) >= 0) { count += 1; } } return count; }
