Bio

I've been tutoring since the third grade! Having gone through some struggles with math myself, I can relate to the frustrations and feelings of doubt that it can cause. I love spending my time now helping other students find tools to conquer their struggles, and know that they can be successful even with the most difficult material!

I've been tutoring since the third grade! Having gone through some struggles with math myself, I can relate to the frustrations and feelings of doubt that it can cause. I love spending my time now helping other students find tools to conquer their struggles, and know that they can be successful even with the most difficult material!

My goals are to help find out which previous gaps, or "missing links," might be holding someone back from success, and build bridges to find that success. I don't promise it will be easy! But it CAN be fun! And it is definitely rewarding. My undergraduate degree was in teaching secondary (MS/HS) mathematics, and my graduate degree is in educational leadership. I've been ACSI credentialed (a private school certification) for over 11 years. More importantly, I've tutored for over 20 years, and I've taught mathematics in the classroom (Pre-algebra through AP Calculus AB) for over 10 years. I love unlocking the secrets of math for everyone! (not just the "good at math" people).

I'm known for being ridiculously (yes, that's the word people use!) patient and consistently positive, while really breaking down the steps of a math problem to help my student truly understand what they're doing, why they're doing it, and how to know what to do about it in the future. I like to draw lots of visual diagrams to help the math "make sense," and especially to help make algebra and calculate a little more concrete and visual. Don't be surprised if a little mouse ends up on one of the diagrams!

Whether you feel like you've always kind of struggled with math, or you just need a little help figuring out the latest topic, I've probably been there. I know how you feel! And I'd love to help you get where you're going - to understanding, to success, and to confidence! I hope to hear from you soon!

Excel can do so much work for us, once we figure out how to work IT! I have worked with Excel both as a hobby and for office jobs for over a decade, have taught Excel as a high school course for the last four years, and have taught Excel as part of college statistics and algebra tutoring for the last two years. Whatever your need, business or educational, I'm glad to help!

Amazing tutor, she’s very patient and explains in a way that you can really understand. Definitely recommend her for anyone struggling with math of any kind.

Brandy me many formulas for factoring, exponents, and graphing. She has helped me understand units 1-6 in lesson 6 of an Algebra 1 book. She has been patient and kind enough to even explain to me how to use my calculator correctly so that I can simplify problems. She has also helped me write notes that help me on my tests.

Patient and knowledgeable

Brandy helped me with putting together PowerPoint slides and working with excel to calculate data and formulas. She shows me tips and tricks that were very helpful.
