Tutoring Company Launched By Local College Student

Sessions are due to launch Mon.

According to The Connection Newspapers, “Passionate about education, Tignor is the former student representative to the Fairfax County School Board (SY 2018-2019). He said the whole point of his position as a board representative was to talk with other students and figure out their concerns. “And that was before the pandemic totally changed education here…School in NOVA is very hard…The thing is everybody needs help,” he said.”

As per The Connection Newspapers, “According to Tignor, he and the other S4S tutors understand first-hand, on multiple levels, the challenges with online education. Website profiles and resumes of the tutors detail professional and educational experience. For instance, Tignor’s resume states he is skilled in biomedical engineering, leadership, and public speaking. He has held positions ranging from leading teams and conducting research. Tignor graduated from South Lakes High School with an Advanced Diploma, 42 college credits hours, and received a GPA of 4.67/4.0.”
