Simone Joannou

Academic Coach

Fun Facts:

Honest, Curious, Adaptable

Hi! I’m Simone! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have dual Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Philosophy as well as my Masters in Philosophy from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. I taught English as a Second Language in South Korea in multiple school and development settings. I have also taught adult ESL at Lonestar College, Cy-Fair. I focused on academic writing, comprehension, and speaking. I have helped students prepare for standardized testing and graduate school applications. When I served as Head Tutor in the Philosophy Department, I wrote my mini thesis on Plato’s theory of education. I believe that overall school is essential to developing social skills and self-advocacy. Writing and comprehension are essential for multiple aspects of life, as they develop creative problem solving and critical thinking skills as well.
