Organized, Curious, Resourceful

Hi! I’m Zehra! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a Bachelor’s degree in History and Gender Studies from the University of California Los Angeles. I have worked for Americorps in California as well as Teach for America here in Houston. I have over four years of classroom experience and I believe that school is the catalyst for learning basic life skills necessary in the workplace. I think that students learn best when they are engaged with someone who cares about them as a person. Coaching can be such a great opportunity to teach students in ways outside of the classroom!
