Life and Work with Meenakshi Singh
Today we’d like to introduce you to Meenakshi Singh.
Meenakshi Singh, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As a parent, I was looking for a Learning center that would provide my 8-year old daughter after school STEM enrichment and the right environment for her to learn, finish her homework and her social skills. Since I could not find such a place, I decided to start one of my own in Frisco. Teaching has been my passion and that is why it became my career.
At SMARTS Club, creative thinking is at the center of every lesson, owner and founder Meenakshi Singh said.
This methodology started when Singh could not find an after-school program in Frisco to suit her daughter’s audible and visual learning style. She took it upon herself to start a tutoring and education center in 2011 that customizes curriculum for each child’s interests and learning styles.
“I just want to help the kids,” Singh said. “That’s all I have in my heart.”
As a former teacher at Frisco, Plano and Little Elm ISDs, starting SMARTS Club was right up Singh’s alley. The former biology teacher sat in for a weekly radio show on FunAsia 104.9 called “Smarts at 4,” where Singh suggested science experiments for listeners to try.
