Will "...I taught younger scouts skills related to being outdoors. In high school, I tutored other students in Algebra and in Government. When I went away to college, getting certified to teach was one of my goals because of these experiences..."
Josiah "...My philosophy of education is that I believe all people are capable of learning. I practice this philosophy by meeting students at their level of educational need and focusing on their individual learning styles and interests, while utilizing a multiple modality approach. The main focuses of my tutoring are English and composition, which, besides being necessary life skills in our society, are subjects I am passionate about..."
Joe "...While this image has been sadly true for many students, my own experience of learning math as I grew up was quite the opposite, and it is that opposite experience which inspired me to go into education. In middle and high school, I was fortunate enough to have educators who taught math not as a regimen of drills and memorization, but as a process of thinking logically. They taught not exclusively through by-the-book lectures, but through anecdotes and idiosyncratic metaphors which may have amused my classmates and I, but also aided our memories and our reasoning skills. Through high school and college, even while completing two unrelated Bachelor's degree programs, I began tutoring my own classmates, younger students, and even adult neighbors using a similar delivery style as my own teachers, albeit tailored to each student's individual struggles..."

State Certified Teacher
Ron "...I currently hold valid Missouri teaching certification in Mathematics and have more than twelve years of full-time experience teaching secondary and collegiate Mathematics. My favorite students are those who struggle with or do not enjoy Math. I believe that most students just need someone to help them break through to not only make success in Math possible, but enjoyable! TEACHING PHILOSOPHY / I believe there are several keys to being a successful Math student: A willingness to try, Parental support Communication, Organization and Access to the student's teacher/professor WHEN I’M NOT TUTORING / I am a father of a teenage son; we are both very active in Boy Scouts..."
