What is JK Education?
This is a student-created website in response to school closures in Erie County due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to provide supplementary education; we plan on covering Regents Physics, Regents Chemistry, AP Physics C: Mechanics and AP & Regents USH as of now. As a limited volunteer-ran operation, we are constrained to the regents sciences, APUSH at the time, though expansion is possible. Through self-scheduled tutoring (i.e. students who need help should email tutors directly to set-up times), revision live streams, and test preparation videos, we hope to stop the COVID-19 pandemic from irrevocably hurting our education.
Krish Patel is a Senior at Kenmore West High School and a Co-Founder of JK Education. Krish is a student of the IB Program and participates in many extracurricular & sports, in which he often holds leadership positions.
“After speaking with many of my friends, although all of us appreciate the ability to sleep reasonable hours due to the “Corona-cation,” there was a concern about education. Hence came the idea of JK Education, seeking to assist students to the best of our abilities alongside fantastic volunteers. In my eyes, it is how we respond to adversity as what truly defines us, and some silly pandemic isn’t about to stop our education.”
Gerald “Jerry” Rott III is also a Senior at Kenmore West High School, and a Co-Founder of JK Education. Jerry is similarly involved in many extracurricular and a student of the IB Program, while also being a three sport varsity athlete.
“This project allows us this opportunity to really help our fellow students, teachers, and school community by providing tutoring and test review based on our knowledge and the knowledge of other student volunteers. Coronavirus is a bummer but we will get through this and hopefully with the help of this website everyone will feel prepared for their exams coming up, good luck and we got this.”
