I am a Master's graduate in Elementary and Special Education, currently pursuing my doctorate in Education and Curriculum. I have been teaching for 10 years as well as tutoring underprivileged students in low income areas. I believe each students has their own way of learning and I do not mind catering to their way of learning. One on one attention at times works best and allows me as the tutor to focus on the weakness. I specialize in helping the younger generation prepare for their state exams and advancement to the next grade. My rates are reasonable and I enjoy working with my students. I am patient and understanding that they may not like the subject but I try to make it bearable.

Very Attentive to My Daughter's Needs — I think Brenda W. is an exceptional tutor. Although it's only been a few lessons so far, she takes her time explaining the math problems with my daughter thoroughly and patiently. If my daughter doesn't get it right away, Brenda takes her time explaining it over and over till she gets it. I really appreciate that quality in a tutor. My daughter just had an exam this past Wednesday and passed it. T ...
