About Brenda

I am currently Adjunct Faculty for Pima Community College. I teach nutrition classes via lecture, hybrid and fully online for Pima. I have been working there for over 4 years now. I love teaching my students about nutrition and how it works in our bodies. There is more to nutrition than just what "diet" to follow or what to avoid. I like to help my students dispel the myths that are out there. I feel that my 20+ years experience in fitness gives me a great sense of making nutrition practical for everyday use.

I have a Bachelor's in Dietetics from University of Arizona and a Master's in Sports Nutrition from Auburn University. I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach from the NSCA. I have worked with all types of fitness levels and abilities in my career. I have tutored students before (since it is one area at Pima that does not have tutors designated). I look forward to helping anyone understand nutrition...it can be a complicated subject.

I feel I give a very practical sense to nutrition. I like to think I can explain things in a simpler way to make it more easily understood. Once you understand it, then you can learn it and remember it.

Approved subjects

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.
