Andrea Reaka received her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2002. She did a postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis, MO and started a tenure-track position at the newly founded School of Pharmacy at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville in 2005. After two years, she quit her position at SIUE and started a Tutoring Center in Edwardsville – where she has impacted the lives of hundreds of kids in Edwardsville and the surrounding areas.

Her goal is to help parents teach their kids focus, motivation, and goal setting so that they can follow their dreams and make the most out of their own lives.
