How PST Came to Be

Welcome to Planting Seeds Tutoring & Test Prep! My name is Chris Jones, and I'm the founder of PST.

I received my start in education when I began tutoring my peers and coworkers' students for fun while working as an accountant. During this time, I witnessed some of the challenges students faced in order to be successful, such as poor study skills, different types of learning styles & lack of self-esteem. I realized that setting goals is a vital component to building academic self-esteem and inspiring motivation to meet individual potential. 
 

When I returned to school to receive my Masters, I became an instructor at Southern Careers Institute. I saw that many struggling students did not lack comprehension of the material & concepts, or couldn’t follow along or participate in the class. The problem was that many of the younger students (fresh out of high school) were unequipped for the challenges they would face in college. In addition, they didn’t have great organizational skills (keeping up with homework, preparing for tests, etc.) and were unmotivated by grades and lack of initiative to excel through academic enrichment. 

My desire for PST is to see every student we interact with develop skills for lifelong learning and growth, not just an A+ grade!
