Meet the Owner
Celeste Ferrson, C.E.O & Founder
Welcome, come on in! I’m Celeste, the C.E.O and founder of Moving Mountains Tutoring and Mentoring Services, LLC. I bring people, ideas, and inspiration together via education to make the world a little bit better.
I’ve always considered myself to be an innovator of sorts—I couldn’t be the typical school teacher in my neighborhood. In teaching students from the South Bronx to Miami, FL, I found a yearning to create space that affirmed my pupils and prepared them for a world that statistically is not kind to them. I saw many projects, after-school programs, and the occasional promise from various officials to fix the issues my students face. I saw promises but never solutions.
Over the years, I’ve learned to take the promises of others and turn them into magic for the students I serve. Through impatiently devouring knowledge while gaining my masters’ degree while also teaching, enabled me to birth my own venture. My belief that there is a better way to integrate learning and empowerment, motivates me to share my philosophy with others through my company. My passion for equity, diversity, and progress lights a fire beneath me that is seen throughout my work.
Today, I help my wide community of students cultivate authentic learning experiences that teach as well as affirm self-worth and pride through inclusive teaching strategies as the C.E.O of Moving Mountains Tutoring and Mentoring. I’m also building a vibrant community with a diverse population of millennials who want and deserve to take up space in their respective industries. In the past, I’ve orchestrated several educational programs and events, and earned my Master’s degree in Reading Education K-12 from Florida International University, my bachelors from City University of New York in Childhood Education K-5 degree with a concentration in Psychology and, I am continuing my own education by recently completing an Applied Behavior Analysis program.
