Michael "Having spent most of my career in supply chain management, I discovered that one of the most rewarding aspects of my roles was that I could facilitate the personal and professional development of my charges by sharing my expertise and experience. Few successes were as satisfying as seeing team members whom I had trained and supported achieve lofty goals. At this juncture in my career, I am in a position to undertake work that affords me with more personal enrichment, hence my interest in tutoring. I feel that the subjects - math, science, and history - that I choose to teach are essential for effective, productive, and enlightened living..."
Chelsea "...Louis area. While my job is a lot more than working with books, I absolutely love working with my students (grades 6-12) in selecting books to read. I have been working with books in some capacity for 10 years and have an emphasis on the young adult genre and have been a volunteer reader-selector for the Missouri Gateway Award for the last three years. In my experience strong readers make strong writers, and vice versa..."

Shareen "...I believe the key to being an effective tutor is to perceive the best way for the student to comprehend concepts. Most people can learn difficult concepts to teach, but not everyone can communicate the ideas in a way that the student will understand and retain the material. From my experiences, I have worked with countless students with a wide variety of learning styles..."
Juan "...Today, I am a post-baccalaureate student at the University of Pennsylvania. Because I see myself primarily as a philologist, I am studying in order to enter a Ph.D program.

Christine "...Louis area. I earned a master's degree in Secondary Education in 2013 from the University of Missouri - St. Louis. I earned by bachelor's degree in 2011 from the University of Miami with a major in Economics and a minor in Art and Art History. I will be tutoring middle/high school math and social studies. I believe that all students can excel and would love to convince every person in America that Math is FUN! (Social studies does not have as bad a reputation.) I enjoy working with students and have substantial experience with students who have IEPs or otherwise need some extra help (don't we all sometimes!)..."
Patrick "...I am currently a teaching assistant for a law school professor where I provide incoming law students academic support including study skills, time management and basic legal analysis skills. For me, tutoring is about unlocking one’s unique path to achieving their academic goals. Both as a tutor and a student, few things are as gratifying as those light-bulb moments when everything comes together and clicks..."
Daniel "...In addition to the core curriculum for my major, I also completed all of the necessary classes to apply to medical school. This has given me a wide range of subjects that I am familiar with and comfortable tutoring, especially in biological fields such as Anatomy, Physiology and Genetics. I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska, but over the past 5 years, I have gotten to know and love the Saint Louis area..."
