KnowledgeQuest is a tutoring center that specializes in remediation and enrichment for students in grades K-12. Founded in 1995 by Jasna Knowles, the center has served thousands of Bay Area students on their way to academic success.
Ms. Knowles holds a BS in Computer Science and a Masters of Education. She also supplemented her expertise with training in special education, learning disabilities, and how to advocate for children during IEP/504 meetings.
Ms. Knowles started her career as an algebra classroom teacher in both public and private schools. In that role, she became aware of the difficulty to be able to reach a struggling student in large classroom environments. This inspired her to get more engaged with students on an individual level at Britannica and Sylvan Learning Centers. Ms. Knowles enjoyed this challenge, but found existing programs too pre-designed and rigid, like educational cookie-cutters.
