What do you enjoy most about tutoring at Thinking Organized? What I enjoy most about tutoring at Thinking Organized is getting to know my students and helping them see and reach their potential.
What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why? My greatest achievements have entailed service to others through coordinating projects and programs for those in need. As an undergraduate student, I had the opportunity to visit Ghana on a service-learning trip. After my return to the states, I organized a fundraiser at my school that benefited a clean water initiative for a village I visited during the trip.
What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about you? I was born and raised in Rochester, NY, also known as the Flower City, where it is very cold and snows a lot during the winter. In high school I loved to perform. I attended a performing arts school and was a competitive cheerleader. I continued cheerleading in college and minored in dance.Tahrea Flemming Mensah, LMSW
