How We Started


From a young age, I dreamed of becoming a teacher. I went on to study elementary education at University of Missouri-Kansas City. After teaching four years in both public and private classrooms, I began the adventure of Advantage Tutoring. I thoroughly enjoyed my classroom experiences; however, I longed to help each student in my classroom in the specific ways that he or she needed. As a result, I began providing individualized instruction through private tutoring. Over the course of the next nine years, the business expanded from tutoring two after-school students, to 10+ tutors meeting with 50+ homeschooled and traditionally schooled students from all over the valley on a weekly basis. Despite the exponential growth, the fundamental values of superior education, provided in a customized, relationship-oriented environment, has continued.
