A Chat with Athena Learning Center - College Station
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Tutoring for K-12th grades in math, reading, and science. We are the only learning center to use certified teachers as our tutors. Custom-designed programs fit each child’s particular needs. We work hand in hand with your child’s school teacher to identify areas to concentrate on.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
The material we use is by Pearson Education, the same material your child will use in their school classroom. We have an outstanding Early Reader program that is taught by one of our best teachers. We have seen impressive results for young children learning to read.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I am a teacher, first and foremost. I spent my career teaching 8th grade science and I maintain my state teaching license. Noting a definite need to be able to teach children in a closer, more personal environment and being tired of the politics of the local public school system, I started this business.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the light bulbs go on in young kids heads when they finally “get it,” when they grasp a difficult concept and you see that little smile of accomplishment on their face. Never gets old and keeps me going. I love being able to give back to the community and our next generation this way.
