About Brooke

I have three years teaching experience in Washington State, and am certified for both Washington and Colorado. I am K-8 certified for Washington, K-6 for Colorado.

As a student I excelled in math, reading, and science. I was reading at a college level by age 8 and took Calculus at 15. I can help you improve your grades, long term. I can help you with the individual subject or lesson that is causing you difficulty now, and I can provide you with the study skills and habits that will help you to excel in the future. No matter what your previous experiences with school and tutoring are, or your personal feelings or concerns about your problem subjects, I can help.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my BA in both elementary and special education. I am certified to teach all subjects k-8 in Washington State. I am certified to teach all subjects k-6 in Colorado. I have three years experience teaching elementary students, as well as prior tutoring experience with high school aged youth.

Handwriting

Aspies like myself are known for having terrible handwriting. I spent years training my handwriting to be legible and pleasant (at my mother's insistence). The most important aspect of handwriting is to have a consistent system for building the letters that is simple, fast, and easy. It takes practice, and is not very fun, but the end result is well worth it. I am K-6 certified for Colorado and K-8 "certificated" for Washington state.

Soccer

I played soccer all through school until I tore out my ACL. I love the game, and believe that the best approach is to begin with individual skills training, and physical conditioning, and then to integrate weekly scrimmages and inter-team challenges. I also believe in providing additional activities that students can do on their own time to further develop skills, such as hacky-sack/footbag.

Study Skills

I believe qualifying for college at age eight is indicative of some very advanced study skills. I have a number of "study hacks" that have helped me and which I believe will help my students. When I did go to college, I was in the top 5% of community college students nation-wide (Phi Theta Kappa honor society) and in university was top 3% nationally (Phi Kappa Phi honor society). That isn't something one can luck into.
