Bio

Hello! My name is Aja, but I prefer to go by "Gem." I enjoy tutoring students in Math, English, Spanish, AutoCAD, and Sketchup. I attended Vicksburg High School in Mississippi, enrolling in AP/Honors courses. I was an active member of the Boys and Girls Club, National Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta. I achieved the President's Award for being in the top ten and Gator Award for community service. I graduated from The University of Mississippi as a Luckyday Academic Excellence Scholar with a...

Hello! My name is Aja, but I prefer to go by "Gem." I enjoy tutoring students in Math, English, Spanish, AutoCAD, and Sketchup. I attended Vicksburg High School in Mississippi, enrolling in AP/Honors courses. I was an active member of the Boys and Girls Club, National Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta. I achieved the President's Award for being in the top ten and Gator Award for community service. I graduated from The University of Mississippi as a Luckyday Academic Excellence Scholar with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Math. I wrote poetry over the years, and during my freshman year of college, I had my poem, "Beautiful Eyes," published in the Venture Online Volume 6 Freshman Writing Magazine. As a Luckyday Scholar, I was chosen to tutor my fellow scholars in College Algebra, Calculus 1-4, General Chemistry, and English. I completed my Master of Architecture degree with honors at Arizona State University and now am an Architectural Designer at BRR Architecture.
I have helped students overcome their struggles and develop a new love for the subjects from high school through graduate school. During my free time at school, I also enjoyed proofreading papers and giving feedback on my classmates' work, helping them improve it before stressful deadlines.
Attending Mu Alpha Theta conventions at Mississippi College every year certified me to tutor the high school students for the Subject Area Testing Program (SATP) examinations in Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus, and the ACT Math section. After receiving a 99 percentile in English, 97 percentile in Math, and 99 percentile in Reading on the ACT and ACT COMPASS examinations, I further tutored students for the Stanford Achievement Tests (SAT-10), ACT, and other exams.
I look over the material with students, making sure sessions are a fun learning experience. Based on their needs, I simplify the material for them to understand and excel in exams and work. Please feel free to contact me to schedule a session convenient for us!

Very patient and clear

Aja was great. She took my daughter last minute before an exam. She was extremely patient, thorough and clear. My daughter didn't feel as though she was rushed even though they had lots of information to get through. Very happy!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Gem was super patient with me and was able to explain and break down problems in plain English! We had some technical difficulties in the beginning but she was able to come up with a solution quickly and continue with the lesson.

Christie, 2 lessons with Aja

Knowledgeable and patient

She accommodates my son anytime he needs help. Great tutor who knows all the info about Geometry at her fingertips. My son hates math but with the help of this tutor, he's started getting excited. This tutor is extremely cheap when you compare with what she covers during a session. I used to pay another tutor twice as much but not much result noted.

violet, 6 lessons with Aja

Fun, smart and kind teacher

Gem taught me pronouns, and some Algebra. She is very smart, fun and no-nonsense! She is also knowledgeable. A very good tutor. I have had one lesson with her, and look forward to the next!
