Apollo 20 Tutors Come From All Walks of Life

Monica Edwards Nixon believes every child has the ability to learn. She says it just takes the right combination of respect, care, and discipline to ensure children succeed in school.

Nixon is one of more than 230 Math Fellows hired to deliver intensive math tutoring to students in grades 6 and 9 at Apollo 20 schools. She left her financial planning job two years ago to explore a career in education and is working at Fondren Middle School.
