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..."

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..."
Gwyn "...I tutor a variety of subjects, particularly in mathematics. My subjects include ACT Test Prep in all four subsections, SAT Test Prep in Mathematics and Verbal, Physics, Algebra 1 and 2, Trigonometry, Calculus 1, and Competitive Math. My favorite subjects to tutor are Physics and Calculus because I enjoy both subjects immensely and I find them to be a lot of fun..."
Jamie "... When I teach Math or any subject, I try to take something that the student enjoys and relate it back or find an element of the subject we can build on. For me, Math would not have clicked had I not looked at the equations as a puzzle I had to put together correctly to get the correct picture. However, I made this connection and have excelled in Math all the way through Calculus! I enjoy being outside doing a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing and running..."
