Tanya J. Sekhon,

School Director & Lead Instructor

Tanya worked in public schools as a teacher and as a curriculum director in a high achieving school district.  She learned how to help students improve their test taking skills through the error analysis method and began teaching this method to adult teachers.  Tanya and her family moved to North Carolina in 2014 and received her broker's license shortly after that.  Along with being an active broker she assisted with new agent on-boarding and realized that she could combine her love of real estate with teaching and became a licensed RE instructor.  In 2018 she and her family moved to Elizabeth City and Tanya became director of the school in 2019.
