BEHIND SOK FOUNDATION
Welcome to the Seekers of Knowledge Foundation! My name is Chris Jones, and I'm the founder of both Seekers of Knowledge and our partner, Planting Seeds Tutoring & Test Prep.
I received my start in education when I began tutoring my peer's and coworkers' students for fun while working as an accountant. During this time, I witnessed some of the challenges students faced in order to be successful, such as poor study skills, different types of learning styles & lack of self-esteem. I realized that setting goals are a vital component of building academic self-esteem and inspiring motivation to meet individual potential.
When I returned to school to receive my Masters, I became an instructor at Southern Careers Institute. I saw that many struggling students did not lack comprehension of the material & concepts, or couldn’t follow along or participate in the class. The problem was that many of the younger students (fresh out of high school) were unequipped for the challenges they would face in college. In addition, they didn’t have great organizational skills (keeping up with homework, preparing for tests, etc.) and were unmotivated by grades, and lacked the initiative to excel through academic enrichment.
