Hello! My name is Willette Akua. I have a bachelor’s degree in Accounting but only spent a few years in the business world.
I soon realized, after volunteering at a local elementary school and an adult literacy program, that my true passion was education. I enrolled at Mercer University to begin my coursework in Early Childhood Education and became a certified teacher in 2001. I spent 15 years in the public school system teaching grades K-3. During this time, I was able to transform non-readers into avid readers and students who didn’t like math into mathematical problem solvers.

My students developed a passion for learning because I created a challenging, safe, and motivating environment that allowed them to take risks and achieve their goals. Later, in my educational career, I was hired to be a reading and math, Early Intervention Specialist. In this role, I served students in grades K-5.
My latest educational adventure has led me to teach English to Chinese children online. If you choose me to be your teacher/mentor, I will use my experience, skills, and resources to help you reach whatever goals you have set for yourself. I am dedicated to helping others achieve at their highest possible level.
