My name is Brenna and I am an experienced Chemistry and Math tutor. I worked for Metropolitan State University of Denver Student Academic Success and Tutoring Center for four years where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry. My day job is for Centura Health in their IT department working on their electronic health record. I believe in revealing the logic behind processes rather than memorizing. This allows my students to think through problems if they can't remember exactly how to it and apply what they know when the problem is presented in a different way. I also employ analogies to take abstract concepts and apply them to real life in order to make them feel more tangible. I really love science and look forward to sharing my enthusiasm with all of my students.

Genetics

I have a Bachelors or Science in Biology from MSUDenver. I have taken two genetics classes and have tutored genetics at the MSUDenver tutoring center for three years. I have tutored the concepts of mitosis, meiosis, pedigrees, and punnett squares most frequently. I really enjoyed genetics and got a high grade in this class.

Chemistry tutor

My daughter enjoyed her first meeting with Brenna and said she is looking forward to learning more about where she can make adjustments to help her with chemistry.

Tammy, 9 lessons with Brenna

Happy kiddo after session!

My daughter really struggles with Chemistry and Brenna explained it in a way my daughter understood. As Brenna walked out the door Morgan whispered excitedly, "Oh, she's coming back!" It was refreshing to see her happy about Chemistry for once.

Rebecca, 6 lessons with Brenna

AP Chemistry Tutor

She was an extremely good tutor. She explained things in a comprehensive way, and when I didn't understand she explained in a different way. She was flexible based on what I needed more help with. When I asked a question, even dumb ones, she automatically started to explain without judgement.

Great tutor!

Brenna is working with my daughter on chemistry and math - she has been very helpful which has allowed my daughter to do well in both classes! She is consistent, professional, friendly and she makes sure Megan understands a concept before moving on. She is always willing to stay for extra time if needed and my daughter feels very comfortable asking questions. We definitely recommend her!

Great skill and retention techniques

My son was so excited that something so confusing and frustrating was so easy to work and remember using easy techniques and learning shortcuts. Thanks Brenna

Great Tutor!

Our daughter enjoys working with Brenna. Brenna interprets the work in a way that's easier for her to understand. She does this with patience and kindness.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Brenna helped our Daughter prepare for her Honors Pre-Calc class. Our Daughter had a good experience in the classroom, she felt much more confident and sure of herself.

Ed, 82 lessons with Brenna

Brenna continues to advance my daughter's math skills.

We have had Brenna supporting our daughter since October 2014 and the sessions are proving to be well worth the effort and time spent. Our daughter's grade has increased two steps in four months. The sessions are getting shorter too, and this is showing directly by our daughter improving not only her knowledge, but also her comprehension and speed. Brenna is very qualified and our daughter is always excited and ready for the session that she and Brenna set up together.

Goes the distance

Brenna always goes the distance and beyond to help get the concepts across, or drive in a snowstorm for an 8:00 pm session.
