"Why do I need to know this?"
If your child is like any that I have taught, he or she has likely asked this question. I think we all struggle with it until we realize that there are no jobs for people who don't know things. My name is Brandon and I can take your child's understanding to the next level.*
I have been tutoring since 2004 beginning with neighborhood children in Charlotte, NC in every subject area listed below. During my studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I continued to tutor not only elementary school students, but also native Spanish speakers one-on-one (in NC and abroad). Lessons covered a variety of subject areas and were conducted exclusively in Spanish (except the English lessons, of course). After a degree in Political Science with a Spanish minor, I decided to continue teaching - in Korea. As such, I have experience teaching over many subject areas - a breadth rivaled only by the diversity of students that I have taught.
I look forward to working with you and your child to make the best of his or her abilities at this crucial juncture in your child's educational career.
*Every learning process takes time, dedication, and (most importantly) a helping hand. Beyond that, I don't believe that it is too much to ask those of us who educate to recognize that no two children learn identically. The hand that helps is useless without the ear that listens, the eye that sees, and the heart that feels. I am prepared to tutor your child in his or her weakest areas by leveraging strengths in order to build a framework that will serve your child not just for an upcoming test but for real-world application. After all, the learning process is one that builds upon previous successes.
I cannot wait to see the light bulbs turn on!
