About Aj


Bio

My name is AJ, and I'm back in the US after living in Ghana, West Africa for the past 7 years. Currently, I am building a business based on the things I've learned there in order to one day return and help give people more equitable access to energy. I am an alumnus of Princeton University ('01), where I was a Creative Writing major.

My name is AJ, and I'm back in the US after living in Ghana, West Africa for the past 7 years. Currently, I am building a business based on the things I've learned there in order to one day return and help give people more equitable access to energy. I am an alumnus of Princeton University ('01), where I was a Creative Writing major.

I have extensive tutoring and teaching experience, having worked for Kaplan and Huntington Learning centers, not to mention tutoring many independent clients, recently and prior to moving to Ghana years ago. I am knowledgeable about the current SAT and ACT formats and content, having recently helped a number of students to much success in all four areas of those tests (English, Reading, Science, and Math). I am also a skilled subject-matter tutor, and am capable of adapting a program to fit the educational needs of each student. Hope to meet you soon!

I know what it's like to struggle with Math, which I did until something "clicked" for me in high school. I like to think I am sensitive to the issues a lot of people have with Math growing up, and that I can put strategies in place that can make things a lot more rewarding.

I'll work around your schedule. If you'd like to know more about my background and skill set, please contact me.

Public Speaking

As a Princeton University student who began his college career as an actor, my comfort on stage translated well to the public speaking responsibilities I assumed as the founder of a non-profit while still at University. While still in my early twenties, my regular speaking engagements brought me to various conferences throughout the Ivy League, in front of sizable crowds in Africa, and even to a White House dinner, where I spoke on the meaning of social entrepreneurship in the context of a modernizing economy as a guest of the Office of the Secretary of State. My efforts to work with Wyzant are to help take financial pressure of my family while we raise funds for a new company. As such, it would be my pleasure to work with those interested in honing their public speaking skills, whether their challenges are in presentation, actual speaking, speech making or speech writing, or the psychological backdrop which frequently undermines many well-intentioned public speakers.
