About: Hi! My name is Aiyana Smith and I am tutor/teacher at West K12 Tutoring and WABC tutoring center. West K12 is a small family business in the local West Philadelphia Area, while WABC is a team of 5-6 members, serving in a large tutoring facility set in a local church in the city of Houston that tutors more than 1000+ families a year. I’m hoping to move into a classroom/pod like setting to help children in a unique learning experience face to face. At your Learning Pod, I would hope to foster a peaceful learning environment with all the help and resources your child needs to excel in their online schooling/learning. I am a strong believer that learning should be interactive and engaging, and what I love about my training at WestK12 and WABC is that it offered an array of enriching activities for your children where they have the opportunity to learn a little about themselves and the world around them. Growing up in Philadelphia, I learned the value of being an active member of the community. Ever since I was a kid, I knew I wanted to be a teacher and leader one day in order to help students to learn and to grow into individuals with that same sense of community I felt. I’m an award winning actress, and am hoping to bring those same talents and accomplishments back to the heart of the city and families of where I’m from. I was a tutor/ teacher during the shift to online learning this past spring, and that experience has equipped me with the knowledge and creativity necessary to ensure your child gets the most out of their education. I’m also privileged to be surrounded by members of the educational community within Local, Charter and Ivy League school systems. This past summer, I was Assistant Programming Director at the Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church where I created and implemented educational and enrichment activities with a social-emotional focus for Kindergarten through 6th grade. With all the changes going on in children’s lives and routines, I’m excited to share my ideas from that program so that your Learning Pod can be a happy environment that can restore a sense of comfort and consistency to you and your child’s lives. Im matriculating from University of Houston to University of Penn from May 2020-2021 with a B.A. in Public Speaking, and am also CPR and First Aid certified. In my free time, I enjoy being with friends and family, cooking, hanging out with my pets, spending time working out, reading, and traveling.
