I was looking for a tutor for my son, he needed to improve skills in math, reading and writing. We found Brigid on the website. I was present on my son's first lesson with her. I would have to say it was very impressive. Her method to teach, her professionalism, her passion for what she does, everything made me think that we got exactly what we were looking for and my son already looks very motivated to reach the goal. Thanks to Brigid, she is great tutor and would strongly recommend her to anybody who really needs to improve academic skills.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have tutored elementary, middle, high school and college students in a variety of subjects, including reading, phonics, writing, math and economics, as well as general study skills.
