Tori Gelino, Tutor
Tori is a 2010 graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and a minor in History. Her plan was always to teach middle or high school, but now, she has discovered that she enjoys working with students in a one-on-one setting and really helping them reach their specific goals.
She loves working with all different kinds of students - children, teens, or adults - including those with special needs. Her favorite things to do include reading (everything from Shakespeare to Twilight), playing guitar, exercising, and spending time with my husband and two puppy dogs. Tori is looking forward to working with as many students as she can and making a difference!
