Award-Winning Reading Tutors in St. Louis, MO
Joshua "... As a tutor, I find that its easiest when the student learns in a guided manner, rather than bland memorization or content exposure. With one on one teaching, it is possible to do this effectively and, with effort, will lead to higher absorption of material - and yes, higher grades. Outside of tutoring, I'm currently a contractor at Scott doing IT work. It keeps me busy but also allows me to use downtime to continue my own education..."

As a result of my passion for learning, it is my aspiration to apply for acceptance into the Lindenwood University’s Doctoral Program for the upcoming Fall Semester..."
Tom "...I believe that the source of all good writing stems from clear, critical thought, and this is what I try to nurture in my students. Having received numerous accolades from the Illinois College Press Association, both as a writer and an editor, I have a proven track record of what works. I have traveled extensively throughout my college career, specifically to several Spanish speaking countries, the most recent once being Cuba. I not only have mechanical skill with Spanish, I have a profound love for Spanish and Latin American culture..."
Jonah "I tutor because I like to help people learn, plain and simple. I struggled with focusing on schoolwork when I was younger, and so I know just how valuable one-on-one learning can be, and I want to be able to provide that. This will be my fifth year working as a tutor, and I've worked with middle and high schoolers, as well as unofficially helping fellow college students over the past year..."

I have also with children with Asperger’s, autism and cerebral palsy as a camp counselor in my hometown of Atlanta. As far as tutoring is concerned, I most enjoy helping students with Writing, Spanish and Geometry..."
