I was born and raised in Ghana and moved to the United States fourteen years ago to attend graduate school in environmental engineering at Georgia Tech. During summer breaks at Tech, I taught physics and math to high school students at Morris Brown College in Atlanta. After working for a few years, I moved to New York City to pursue an MPA program at Columbia University. As a graduate student at Columbia, I served as a teaching assistant for accounting and social capital markets.
I co-founded the Apo Galore tutoring program that provided science and math lessons for 300 students each summer. I also taught Math for 2 years at Ghana Secondary School, a high school in my hometown of Tamale. Over the years of teaching and tutoring, I learned how to adapt my teaching style and approach to the individual strengths and weaknesses of my student.
At AJ tutoring, I help students ace pre-calculus and algebra. I derive my biggest satisfaction from guiding students to develop problem solving skills and greater belief in their abilities. I believe that with practice and self-belief, anybody can succeed at math. I also believe that students can be helped to see math as the fun subject that it is.
I have many interests outside of tutoring! I perform with world-class Salsa dance teams at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles and at the All Nations Festival in New York City. I am an avid reader with interests spanning psychology and career advancement. I also enjoy writing and recently co-authored an ebook.
