Planting Seeds: A Commitment to Learning and Growth

Christopher Jones

Welcome to Planting Seeds Academic Solutions! I'm Chris Jones, founder of PSAS.


My journey began unexpectedly, tutoring peers and coworkers' students during my time as an accountant. Through these interactions, I witnessed first-hand the various obstacles students face - be it poor study skills, diverse learning styles, or lack of self-esteem. This experience led me to a revelation: education goes beyond conventional metrics of success. It's about fostering academic self-confidence and harnessing individual potential.

 

As I returned to school again to receive my Masters and took up an instructor role at Southern Careers Institute, I struck by the struggles of many students - particularly the fresh high school graduates transitioning to college. Their comprehension wasn't the issue; instead, they lacked the organizational skills and motivation needed to thrive in an academic environment.

This realization led to the inception of Planting Seeds Academic Solutions.

Our mission is not just to help students earn an A+ grade.
Instead, we aim to nurture lifelong learners equipped with the skills needed to grow and excel both within and outside the academic realm.

We aspire to see every student we interact with develop the passion and tools for continuous learning and personal growth.
