Greetings Parents and Potential Study Buddies!
My name is AJ. I am a 27-year-old Howard University grad and Atlanta native who loves learning and loves teaching. In my ten years of tutoring experience, I've grown to understand that the best part about learning is having fun while doing so, and I bring a fun yet practical approach to the lessons I teach. By day I am a curriculum development specialist at a science-based education company for kids, and spend my time creating engaging and exciting science workshops for kids around the metro Atlanta area. I believe the best way to learn is with excitement and laughter, and I bring that energy to all of the students I have the privilege to teach.
As a former magnet student of the DeKalb County School System (Kittredge Magnet through Chamblee Charter High, whoop whoop!), I understand the challenges students today face with education. Learning is moving at a much faster rate than ever before, and the expectation for students to reach educational milestones grows higher each year. I make it my personal mission to discover each of my students’ learning styles, and I use the information I gather to develop learning and study plans that are custom to my individual students. I center my tutoring style on inquiry based learning; that is, I work to make each subject I tutor applicable to my students’ everyday lives. I believe by eliminating the question “Why do I need to know this?”, I can assist students in achieving both short term and long term study goals. My tutoring capabilities range from primary phonics to high school standardized testing preparation, and I specialize in reading disabilities, science and mathematics.
I look forward to potentially working with you or your student!
Have a scientific day!
