Hayley founded Jackson Hole Tutoring after returning to her hometown of Jackson, WY in 2014 and is extremely proud of its success. She has since expanded the business to include Jackson Hole College Consulting in order to help Jackson students navigate the college admission process.
Hayley's time studying, working, and traveling outside of the country has only intensified her passion for Jackson Hole and her desire to explore the Tetons. When not working, she makes time to play outside, read, crochet, learn to play banjo and nurture relationships with family, friends, and animals.
Jackson Hole Tutoring is truly a family business. Paul is owner Hayley's younger brother. He was born in Jackson, but spent his childhood on a sailboat exploring the Caribbean. He graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Finance. It was in Orlando that he discovered his passion for working with kids. He tutored in math and test preparation as well as coached basketball and swimming.
After returning to Jackson, he started his own business on the Snake River. The seasonal nature of his business allows him the freedom to work with students during the school year. He enjoys the bond between tutor and student that is cultivated during one-on-one learning. As a lifelong learner himself, he hopes to instill the joy of acquiring knowledge in his students.
When Paul isn't tutoring he can be found on adventures with his dog, Lola, snowboarding, reading or listening to podcasts, and using his height on the basketball court.

Born in Atlanta, GA John’s experience growing up was defined by a love for sport, music, travel and rhetoric. John's Mom insisted that he travel and learn a language, which he accomplished through college, after trips to Latin America and Spain. After graduating from the University of North Georgia with an undergraduate degree in Clinical Psychology, John went to New Orleans to explore graduate opportunities in psychology and pursue music. This led to a stint in New England where John worked as a behavioral therapist & applied psychologist before finding writing as an expressive outlet.
Whether inquiring into the philosophy of the mind, phenomenology of consciousness, this band’s latest album or interviewing artists, John found a world in writing that challenged and invigorated all the faculties of life. On a writing assignment in BC, Canada -- John had an emotional experience that would change the trajectory of his life and set the course for Jackson, WY.
One of the most valuable lessons John learned as a musician, therapist and writer; is that interpersonal connections can be used to facilitate our own development. When you apply a passionate pursuit of knowledge into a group dynamic that commands progress, you can readily observe the expanding universe within the eyes of a young person. John lives to cultivate, share, and expand this awareness.
When John isn’t working as a tutor or therapist, you can find him snowboarding, climbing, reading, listening, playing, postulating, inquiring and ultimately; sleeping.

Kelsey grew up surrounded by beauty here in Jackson, Wyoming. From a young age, Kelsey could be found designing “science experiments”, rescuing bugs, and exploring the natural world. Her love for the outdoors and science brought her to Washington State where she continued to play and explore in the Pacific Northwest.
She received her B.S. degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Puget Sound. Kelsey took nature by the horns and ventured out to teach Outdoor Environmental Education as a Naturalist Educator and adventure guide throughout Washington State and California. While teaching in nature and to her students’ individual needs was a wonderful opportunity, Kelsey’s inner science nerd brought her home. She hopes to further spread her roots in Jackson, with the goal of one day, continuing on
into the field of medicine. Her desire to keep a connection to education, and spread her zeal for learning drew her to tutoring. She looks forward to continuing to build connections with students at Jackson Hole Tutoring.
When not frolicking in the woods, you might find Kelsey dancing, making music, experimenting in the kitchen, kayaking, creating art, or meeting new people.
