I first became interested in teaching when in the Boy Scouts. I taught younger scouts skills related to being outdoors. In high school, I tutored other students in Algebra and in Government. When I went away to college, getting certified to teach was one of my goals because of these experiences. While at the University of the South, I took 5 education courses and tutored in Grundy County (TN) Middle School and Franklin County (TN) High School. Unfortunately, my school phased out their licensure program my sophomore year. I took a semester off and taught Outdoor Education at the YMCA of the Ozarks in 2010. I returned to school and graduated in 2011 with a BA in Political Science with minors in History and Education. Since returning to St. Louis, I have privately tutored two high school students struggling in Math. I have also enrolled in the graduate teacher certification program at University of Missouri – St. Louis. I plan to get certified in both Math and Social Studies.

My experiences, patience, content knowledge and communication skills all make me a great tutor. I have worked with students from the age of 8-18, with students in remedial classes and others in Advanced Placement classes. There are many ways for children to learn. I personally learn visually and with repetition, but I willingly adapt to each student's learning needs. I have learned that with patience and practice, every child can learn.
