I have other thirty-five years of teaching/tutoring experience beginning in 1977 as the manager/tutor of the Stanford Tutoring Service in Palo Alto, California.
There are few things more gratifying to me than the look of satisfaction in the eyes of a student for whom the math mystery has been revealed! I have over 70 hours on Wyzant and each new student, each new challenge, brings me tremendous satisfaction!

Brenda helped me with the ACT Prep subjects in English and Math. She taught me strategies for time and content.
Brenda is a gifted tutor and a simply wonderful person. In addition to her thorough understanding of the subject matter - whether physics or calculus, in our case - she has the rare ability to re-inspire confidence in a student who's become demoralized. My son went from "I'll never, ever get calculus" to "I've totally got this" within a single term thanks to Brenda's guidance. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Brenda is very patient and a great teacher. She helped to improve my son's grade and he is more confident with his coursework.
Brenda helped me improve my math score by 8 points. I went from a composite ACT of 25 to a composite of 30 which is remarkable. It was a great experience working with her.
She taught me algebra. She is encouraging, nice and patient. I didn't like that while I was working on the problems that she checked her phone often.
Brenda is a great tutor. My son loves her!!! She has a lot of patience and loves her subject and her students. Very happy!!!
Brenda is a wonderful teacher. Clear and spot on. My son is just loving her tutoring! In two weeks, his mark went from a B to an A! Well done, Brenda!
Thanks for the glowing review, Gloria! Much appreciated!
My son didn't want a tutor, he was very upset that I got one for him. After his first lesson with Brenda, we walked her out to her car, and he came in the house, fist pumped in the air and said, "YES, I love her." That's when I knew I made the right choice! He's confident going into class now, and taking tests. We still have more learning to do, so we'll be studying and reviewing over the summer break. Brenda truly is a fabulous tutor! 100% recommended!
My son has a major test today, and Brenda made time for him last night to review the test material. We can't thank her enough! Highly recommended!
Brenda is a patient tutor. She allows me to go at my own pace, I am using her for algebra 2 and micro. She explains concepts thoroughly, yet in a way that can be understood.
Brenda helped our son get organized with study materials and reviewed key concepts to ensure that he has the tools he needs to nail his final.
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 taught Sunday School for more than 30 years. Having read through the bible several times, I have written religious literature which has been used as a curriculum both in the U.S. and internationally. I am a spirit-filled Christian and I pray and seek God daily for an understanding of his Word.
I have facilitated seminars and classes for more than 30 years. I was a part of the Learning and Development program at Aurora Loan Services where I taught in front of large groups as a result of my work with the Implementation Team. At my church, I regularly address large groups.
As a mother of five and an instructor to at least 50 children over my life time, I have guided students in developing study skills for many years. I have seen this as a very natural outgrowth of the academic support I have provided. Study skills are somewhat subject specific and I would plan to present guidelines based on the particular academic area.
