Award-Winning Reading Tutors in St. Louis, MO
Glessie "...I also have a firm belief that everyone can learn any subject they are willing to dedicate their mind too. Each individual might have to take a different avenue or apply different techniques of study, but with determination and work they can understand. While tutoring or teaching, I try to help students make their own discoveries by asking questions or giving them a moment to think more deeply about an idea before discussing it further..."

I have experience tutoring and have been tutored, which lets me see both sides of the process, and, as I am still a student myself, I know very well how hard some subjects can be and how easy it is to think you cannot learn it..."
