Meet Our Staff
Patti Greenberg – Chief Executive Officer
Patti was a counselor for the Jennings School District in St. Louis and started tutoring in 1996 after she had her second child. Her tutoring services evolved into Greenways Academy, which went online in 2004. She received the North Central Association accreditation two years later. Ms. Greenberg’s history of 10+ years tutoring students has shown her the need and the benefit for alternative learning. Her belief is that we can reach students who may not succeed in traditional classroom settings and bolster their confidence while they earn their high school diploma giving them a feeling of success and knowledge. Patti is intimately involved in seeking out the most qualified education resources to enhance the company’s global expansion.
Jerry Boomer – President
Jerry has been involved in growing start up education businesses and departments within major corporations his whole career. He believes wholeheartedly in the “leveraged model” where by the effective uses of available resources can help to grow an entity in a professional manner. Mr. Boomer has been fortunate enough to have spent over 40% of his career involved in International Business, which has helped dramatically in the global expansion now going on. Jerry, along with Patti, is intimately involved in seeking out the most qualified resources in North America and beyond to help grow the company from the business side.
