Somé McCowan | Director
I am a school educator with expertise in PK - 12 and postsecondary education. Throughout my career I have shown a commitment to promoting equity in learning through practices that provide scholars the opportunity for equal life choices beyond school. I have been a secondary teacher, academic coordinator, school level administrator, adjunct professor, and central office coordinator, and director. I have also worked in the non-profit field as a director of public relations. As Director of Progress Point Tutoring, I am excited to contribute to the advancement and growth of our mission.
Akila Uppalapati | Assistant Director
I am an undergraduate student at Saint Louis University who is passionate to provide free online tutoring for students in need. Pursuing a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Health Care Ethics on the pre-med track I believe that education is important. Everyone should have access to good resources in order to aid them on their education journey. I hope to help students reach their fullest potential through our tutoring. As Assistant Director of Progress Point Tutoring I am excited to provide a quality educational resource for students to support them through their academic journey.
