Award-Winning Reading Tutors in St. Louis, MO
Tanya "...I truly feel the more a child is able to create and understand his/her own experiences, the more motivated they become, and ultimately the more they learn. I believe that teaching is multidimensional and multicultural, and I have a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and mutual respect. I feel it is important to expect the most from all of one’s students and hold them all to the highest standards, but I also respect all of their different ways of exhibiting excellence. Not all children learn in the same ways, so it is the teacher’s responsibility to know their students and provide dynamic, multi-dimensional learning opportunities that allow all of the learners to be successful..."

Thomas "...Geography and history have something in common in that borders don’t just exist -- they exist for a reason and that reason is usually a pretty good story. I’ve never been a teacher, but always wanted to be one. I’ve had a variety of work experiences through the years (including 7 years as an R.N.), but my love of history and desire to teach is still there..."
