Needing help for the summer? Interested in getting a jumpstart on the upcoming school year? Needing to study for the SAT/ACT? Hi! I am Akili Thrower. I have a Bachelor's in math and chemistry and a Master's in teacher leadership. I have mostly taught grades 2-12. I love helping students understand the subject that I love. I have taught and tutored brick and mortar as well as online. Helping a student reach the "ah ha" moment is my goal. I find it rewarding when I help a student grasp the concept. My experience has taught me that every student learns differently. Consequently, I have adapted and learned how to break down topics in various ways so that each student understands. I enjoyed the past two years tutoring with Stride. When I am not teaching or tutoring I spend time with my husband, two kids, and two cats. I love to read, sleep, and play board games. I look forward to having the opportunity to help your student have the "ah ha" moment and grasp concepts that may be confusing.
