Hi! I'm Tiffany. I am new to the St. Louis area from Kansas City. I am rejoining Varsity Tutors with ten years of classroom teaching experience and two years as a tutor in different educational settings. I have my Bachelors degree in Elementary/Deaf Education, my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and my Educational Specialist in Teacher Leadership. I love horseback riding, reading, evenings at the theatre with friends, or window shopping with my husband at the local outlet mall. But above all, I am dedicated to your child's academic success. I come prepared with many simple yet effective strategies to help them achieve their goals. I look forward to supporting your child.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is simple: every student can learn. Period. Whether my students learn by reading or seeing or doing, my job as an educator is to make the topic relatable by breaking it up into 'bite sized' chunks. I meet my students where they are in their learning, and work to elevate their skills using games, rhymes, models, and other various mnemonic devices. My philosophy is that all students can learn. As your child's tutor, I will do everything I can to build your child's academic confidence.
